Rolling off “Hippocrates”, which world premiered at the Cannes’ Critics’ Week to warm reviews,  doctor-turned-filmmaker Thomas Lilti delves once again into the medical world with “THE COUNTRY DOCTOR” (“Irreplaceable”). The social dramedy stars Francois Cluzet (“Intouchables”) as a devoted and revered countryside doctor whose life gets rocked by a middle-age woman who has come from the city hospital to earn her chops. Challenging each other with opposite views on medicine, the pair eventually bonds and learns from one another.

“The film bristles with humor, mostly drawn from life, and illuminating moments of irony.”— Hollywood Reporter

The general upbeat energy (is) helped along by the sprightly score from LOW, providing a sense of urgency when needed without upstaging the more emotional moments.” — Eyes For Film
