Movie Info

A disenchanted doctor discovers love is good for what ails him in this light romantic drama. Bruno Sachs (Albert Dupontel) is a physician in a small town in France. The only medical man in the community, Sachs is well-liked by his patients and maintains a facade of dignity and compassion, but deep inside, he's not happy with his work and doesn't much care for most of his patients. Sachs supplements his income by performing abortions at a hospital in a nearby town, and one of his patients there is a young woman named Pauline (Valerie Dreville). Pauline seems taken with Bruno, and he finds her charming and attractive; Pauline very directly tells Bruno that she isn't interested in a traditional courtship, but she would certainly like to consummate their feelings at some point in the future. A few days later, Pauline bumps into Bruno at a bookstore, and before long a relationship would seem to be in progress. Meanwhile, Dr. Sachs still has to tend to the various maladies of the locals, ranging from a heart patient who refuses to have surgery that could save his life to a man whose body is wearing out under the strain of his wife's three-times-a-day appetite for sex. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
