Mon oncle d'Amérique
35mm print from the French Foreign MinistryDir. Alain Resnais. 1980, 125 mins. With Gérard Depardieu, Nicole Garcia, Roger Pierre. Scenes from the intersecting lives of three characters—a farm boy turned factory worker, a failed actress, and a self-centered intellectual—are intercut with commentary by the real behavioral scientist Henri Laborit. Fluid, witty, and engaging, this was one of the biggest commercial successes of Resnais’s career.
