Special Screening of The Country Doctor
20th Jun 2017
The sixth film in our series of monthly screenings starting in 2017 has been announced.
For the past thirty years, Dr. Jean-Pierre Werner has been working as a general practitioner in the countryside, far away from any other medical facility. When he finds out that he suffers from a serious illness, Werner is left with no choice but to find a replacement, although he considers himself irreplaceable.
A huge success in France, this new film from Thomas Lilti (Hippocrates) was warmly embraced by audiences for its generosity of spirit and gentle humour.
Paul Burns, film reviewer for The Sydney Morning Herald film said: “Only a real doctor could make a film like this…”
