Cannes Takeover


Adapted from the 1951 non-fiction account by psychoanalyst Georges Devereux, the film follows the true story of Picard, a Plains Indian of the Blackfeet nation, who underwent psychotherapy with Devereux as he returned from WWII and began experiencing unexplainable symptoms shortly thereafter.

Pendapat kami

Director Arnaud Desplechin has a new film in Cannes this year, inspiring us to revive one of his strangest yet most compelling melodramas. A poignant character portrait of a unique cross-cultural friendship, the film is also a tremendous showcase for actors Benicio Del Toro and Mathieu Amalric.

Many reviews of the film criticized the slow dialogue scenes between Jimmy and Devereux, in which the patient provides the therapist with details of his personal history and medical treatment. I consider them to be the film’s most daring invention. These scenes don’t advance the story in a traditional sense—they deepen our understanding of the subject and the extraordinary historical conditions that brought him to this point.

The talky, static quality of Jimmy P., along with its general tone of minimizing racism through small acts of understanding, makes Jimmy P. resemble a conscious throwback to the social-problem films of the 1940s and 50s. Even in the choice of leads — Del Toro the perennial hangdog, Amalric the twitching bundle of energy — Desplechin has arranged a sort of verbal / visual shorthand for liberal dialectics, men from radically different walks of life coming together and learning from one another.

Once their mannered acting styles get enough time to settle, Del Toro and Amalric—the former doing a deliberately stilted, sluggishly contemplative approximation of a Native American with modern English as a second language, the latter playing an experimental professional with a history of underemployment whose new gig with Jimmy inspires a shock of giddy compassion that never subsides until their final separation—are a mesmerizing duo.
