Alain Resnais’ “Mon oncle d’Amerique” (1980) is one the New Wave pioneer’s best films, a winner of the Grand Prize at Cannes. It is audacious. Beginning with big stars of the time (Gerald Depardieu, Nicole Garcia, Roger Pierre), he tells the life stories of these three in a way that promises to be traditional narrative.Alain Resnais’s “Mon Oncle d’Amerique” is presented in the form of a “case history,” replete with a pedantic narrator, played by real-life behavioral scientist Henri Laborit.

A GREAT FILM TO WATCH AND DISCUSS TOGETHER !!!
