Movie Info

In this unconventional French film, renowned writer/philosopher Henri Laborit (portraying himself) presents three stories that illustrate the complexities of human behavior. René (Gérard Depardieu) is a man from humble farming roots who becomes manager at a textile factory and must contend with the pressures of the job. Meanwhile, Janine (Nicole Garcia), an actress turned stylist, is involved in an affair with Jean (Roger Pierre), a politician and aspiring writer who faces difficulties at home.

    Very Woody Allenesque but it still works. Thoroughly entertaining!

    [font=Century Gothic]"Mon Oncle D'Amerique" is an example of the Alain Resnais we all know and are flabbergasted by. The movie starts out as a faux nature documentary that turns its attention to that most educated of animals - human beings. Specifically, it is about three people - Janine(Nicole Garcia), an actress with a radical background; Jean(Roger Pierre), a government minister and Rene(Gerard Depardieu), a manager of a textile mill. The movie delves into their personal histories, backgrounds and influences(including cinema with occasional glimpses of movies starring Jean Gabin and Jean Marais), showing what role they would play in how their lives would turn out.(And are they happy with the destination once they get there?) But chance also plays a very important part, especially in the first meeting between Jean and Janine. [/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]Other directors would probably be more subtle in exploring these themes but Resnais does have a very unique approach which lends credence to my theory that we are all just lab rats on LSD.(If you have any better theories, let me know.)[/font]
