Movie Info

Knock, a brilliant former hustler turned doctor, moves to a village in the French Alps to take over the practice of the retiring colleague. He is dismayed to learn that the pure mountain air and invigorating climate of the charming 1950s village conspire to keep the inhabitants in excellent health. Knock is determined to make his fortune, and sets about convincing the population that a healthy person is sick but doesn't know it. A master in the arts of seduction and manipulation, Knock diagnoses everyone he sees with an illness, real or imaginary. He is a hit. His free Tuesday morning consultations bring even the lowliest inhabitants to his door. In return he gives their existence a newfound purpose. But Knock's success provokes jealousy. The village priest is furious to see his flock congregating outside the doctor's practice rather than inside his church. Two further obstacles stand in his way: a sinister individual from his shady past who tries to put the squeeze on him, and the love of a beautiful farm girl.

Critic Reviews for Dr. Knock (Knock)

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1)

Levy, who adapted the play herself, has expanded the number of "colorful" supporting roles from the original play, giving each character even less time to develop beyond their bare, two-adjective outlines.

...a passing fever quickly cured and forgotten.

Levy's approach is simplistic and sentimental, making it difficult for the fine actors involved (Sabine Azema, Rufus, Ana Girardot) to keep the film's excesses in check.

Doc Martin would be appalled and I wouldn't blame him.

Set in the 50s... 'Doctor. Knock (Knock)' changes from the original... However, in the end those touches serve more as an excuse for the brilliance of Omar Sy... [Full review in Spanish]

It seems inevitable that the comedies fall into the temptation of melodrama... [Full review in Spanish]
