Category: Movies Movie: THE COUNTRY DOCTOR


March 19, 2017

François Cluzet (The Intouchables) is Jean-Pierre, a much-loved doctor in a rural French town. He reassures and cares for his patients day and night, seven days a week. When he becomes sick himself, he keeps this a secret, but soon realises that he needs to find someone to take over his practice. A younger city doctor, Nathalie (Marianne Denicourt), is introduced as the new medic - will she adapt to this new life and take over from the man who thought he was irreplaceable?

“Gorgeous... funny, moving and will leave you with a joie de vivre.” - THE 13TH FLOOR

NZ Herald 3.5 Stars: “A warm and inviting film that avoids being side tracked by any weighty concerns.”

Stuff 3.5 Stars: "As in his last hit film The Intouchables, Cluzet makes the most of the drama and humour inherent in a seemingly odd couple relationship, while Denicourt (Me Without You) makes for a feisty foil."
