(Native American) World War Two Hero

An international production starring a Puerto Rican and a Frenchman.

A Native American tale about  Jimmy Picard "Jimmy Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian” .

Jimmy Picard a Blackfoot Indian is player by Benicio Del Toro a Puerto Rican?

Once again one must assume that there are no Blackfoot Actors qualified to play the part of a Blackfoot Indian?

An eager anthropologist and psychologist from France, George Devereux (Mathieu Amalric), so one must also wonder who played the part of the Frenchmen? An Englishmen?

"The film has one foot in Europe and one foot in America," Desplechin told reporters Saturday. The "A Christmas Tale" director shot the movie in the Midwest and on a Blackfoot reservation in Montana.

Please do not blame the French, they learned from the Americans, there are no Indian actors in Indian Country?
