The movie's institutional politics are fairly pat, though the fear, suffering, and helplessness of the individual patients and their family members are rendered so concretely that the moral imperative is impossible to overlook.
There are few things more fascinating than when competent professionals disagree, especially if we appreciate the source of their impasse.
Lilti, himself a former doctor drawing from his own experience, includes telling details but can't summon a convincing tone.
While it has considerable charms, Hippocrates is just too predictable.
Abdel's compassionate but controversial handling of a cancer-riven elderly woman provides the meatiest storytelling in this otherwise ho-hum workplace drama.
Despite characterful ensemble work in the vein of Maïwenn's Polisse, scenes of spinal taps and form-filling outnumber life-or-death resuscitations, and its dramatic pulse tails off alarmingly.
Vincent Lacoste is riveting as young intern facing personal and professional crises.
It is a sobering look into a bureaucratic system that puts the patients second and the bureaucracy first.
As Algerian physician Abdel, Reda Kateb ("Zero Dark Thirty"), who won a Cesar for this role, gives a study in compassionate care despite a system which often has other priorities. He's the real star of the film.
Provides a stark insight into the demands made of junior doctors in a health system hamstrung by staff shortages and antiquated apparatus.
The little details and the faithfulness to history makes the narrative seem accurate. [full review in Spanish]
A movie that could have been filmed anywhere where those working in the public health sector face great obstacles. [full review in Spanish]
