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?

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. With exceptional performances from François Cluzet and Marianne Denicourt, THE COUNTRY DOCTOR is a touching celebration of life.

"Gorgeous... funny, moving and will leave you with a joie de vivre."
