Arnaud Desplechin

Arnaud Desplechin | France, United States | 2013 | 114 min. | V.O. English subtitled in Spanish

Desplechin gives us a more luminous register here (and looks at the recent history of the United States) in this story based on notes by the scholar George Devereux. Jimmy P. is a Blackfoot indian who, after returning from World War II, is admitted to the military hospital in Topeka, Kansas, with symptoms that include vertigo, temporary blindness, loss of hearing and a marked sense of unreality. These disorders are not caused by any physical injury, so Jimmy is diagnosed with schizophrenia. That is when Georges Devereux arrives on the scene. An anthropologist of Hungarian origin and an expert in Native American culture (he has even studied the Mojave language) he will administer an unusual treatment in which both will delve into the darkest corners of Jimmy P’s mind.
