Mon Oncle d'Amerique * (My Uncle from America)

  • 1980 ----- color ----- 121 min ----- vhs
  • (Directed by Alain Resnais; with Gerard Depardieu, Nicole Garcia, Roger Pierre) Highly original mixture of science and fiction in which three life stories are juxtaposed with the theories of biologist Henri Laborit as a means of analyzing the basic roots of human behavior. Two men and one woman from different penerations and backgrounds, whose paths meet at a crisis point in mid-life. Faced with disappointment and frustration, all three muse about a legendary "Uncle in America," a guardian angel who would give them their hearts' desires and tell them exactly what they want to hear. (Donated by the Center for Western European Studies) (In French with English subtitles) (Restricted to use by institutions of learning within the State of Washington only)
