What happens when an ordinary joe acquires extraordinary healing powers?

Fredi is a working-class guy who rides a bike, trims trees for a meagre living...and one day discovers he has inherited his late mother’s gift of healing. The beauty of this film from François Dupeyron (The Officer’s Ward) is how it casually explores the consequences of an apparent impossibility within an entirely real, recognisably low-key world where the only trace of divine oversight is the sun flare blasting into the lens. Touching, mysterious and unique. [15]

    Absolutely love this film. So well acted, so French! I saw a movie starring Gregory Gadebois a couple of years ago and he is such an interesting, natural y. all the cast were brilliant. I loved the occasionally manic soundtrack. It was all so good, satisfying and well constructed.
