François Cluzet, Marianne Denicourt / Fiction / French

An ill middle-aged country doctor looks to train a replacement.

This perfectly formed and gently amusing French drama from doctor-turned-director Thomas Lilti is a real pleasure. The always excellent French star François Cluzet (Intouchables) is perfect as an experienced country doctor diagnosed with a disease that means he is forced to train up an inexperienced colleague (the equally wonderful Marianne Denicourt). There are clashes between the pair, but they come to appreciate each other as they deal with their idiosyncratic rural patients. [PG]
