Carte Noire IFI French Film Festival: Thursday Preview


The IFI French Film Festival continues today with two films by festival guest Arnaud Desplechin. Kings & Queen from 2004 stars Catherine Deneuve, Mathieu Amalric and Emmanuelle Devos in a story of a pair of ex-lovers’ parallel lives. Tremendously funny and insightful, Kings & Queens is not to be missed, if only for Devos’ dream scene.  

Desplechin’s Franco-American drama Jimmy P: Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian 2013 tells the story of Jimmy Picard, a Blackfeet Plains Indian, who returns from World War II suffering a variety of symptoms that seemingly defy physical diagnosis. This much anticipated film stars Benicio Del Toro and was nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.
