Je N’ai Pas Tué Jesse James

A Film by Sophie Beaulieu

Synopsis

In a French non-western setting, Jesse James is preparing a new bank robbery, after many months of inactivity. But his lifelong partner Bob Ford has more stable projects with his fiancée Cynthia. A weak man more than a coward, Bob just can’t tell Jesse. But will he go as far as killing him? What if the story of Jesse James and killer Bob Ford was just a glorified expression of an unlikely vision of masculinity?
