      David Stratton The Australian It's a film of quality that serves as a reminder of the dedication and commitment of people in the medical profession. Rated: 3.5/5 Apr 7, 2017 Full Review J. R. Jones Chicago Reader Professional insight was exploited more profitably in his breakthrough feature, the biting Hippocrates: Diary of a French Doctor (2014), than in this sensitive, faintly smarmy romance. Mar 16, 2017 Full Review David Parkinson Empire Magazine Persuasively played by fine leads and a well-cast ensemble, this thoughtful treatise captures provincial life and the medical mindset with authenticity and tact. Rated: 3/5 Jan 16, 2017 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy Cluzet and Denicourt find the proper measure of gentle tension in their characters' relationship. Rated: 3/4 Nov 3, 2021 Full Review Chloe Walker Film Inquiry Though The Country Doctor often plods along like one of the doctor's elderly patients, the film has a stealthily endearing sweetness at its core. Jul 24, 2017 Full Review Hannah Brown Jerusalem Post When you see something this real, it is extremely compelling, and you root for these doctors as they work against often impossible odds, and savor their small triumphs.

      Audience Member Low key. Real. Touching. Engaging every minute. The story of a country doctor with a brain tumor and his young replacement is delicately and beautifully told. Unsentimental with no easy outs or dodges. Totally satisfying... Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member A medicine tale. The lives of doctors. Most of the film covered from the professional aspect and between two. A junior and a senior doctor. When I decided to watch it, I anticipated either fun or an inspiring film. But it was like too serious and a casual storyline. I mean it could have been a documentary, but the presentation was clearly a cinematic. Then all cinemas need a writing, so does it. More like from someone's real life experience. It had the ingredients, but everything was straightforward without twist and turn. If you consider the story progressing to the next level is a twist or turn, then the film had a few of those often. Though they are not effective as what a viewer actually meant a real twist in the storytelling. Nowadays, twist means a mind blowing development/scene. The characters were well designed. Between the main two, the narration keeps hopping, revealing their lives as doctors, especially in the rural. There's more to it, that theirs commitments and differences within their passion for their work. A single doctor who has been dedicated all his life to the poor patients from the rural, now discovered he has a brain tumour. He begins his treatment right away, but he was advised to retire and rest. That's where a junior doctor comes in. His replacement. The two work together, where she learns all his patients, but it was not a smooth ride. Since he's not happy to be replaced, particularly his patients are unique, their different style of treating the patients brings a crack in the relationship even before they had one. ?What I call nature may be something else for believers. But don't tell me nature is beautiful.? One thing that unites them is the medicine. Despite the differences, they make their best effort to contribute from their field of expertise. They are the best doctors, but joining the hand at the wrong time is what the English translated title meant. That's almost the entire story of it. Along with their struggle in the rural settings like it be commuting from place to place, at day and night, whenever the service required. The film justifies on the roles it focused on than the concept it deals with. So most of those who watches it won't say they saw a very good film. Even me too felt that way. That does not mean it was bad flick. Some people surely would enjoy it being as it is. I think the real doctors or their friends and families and patients, to see their similar experiences on the screen. What I had liked was, highlighting the work ethic between the rural and the city doctor. It was like a two different world. I have rated it better, because of the quality of the content than what I wanted to have a nice time. Besides, it's almost free of clichés. Like no romance, no medical miracles or the unexpected subplot developed to brighten up the narration in places. That kept me going. Like I have already mentioned, it was practically a documentary feature, with a cinematic experience. The trivia say, it was made by a doctor turned filmmaker. So what do you expect from such director. His previous flick too was about the same theme. Usually when such films are made, the writers, director do research for depicting the contents perfectly. That has not required here. Nicely made film, but not for everyone. One of the under- noticed film, and that's reasonable for such a film, but bashing it even after watching it like what illiterates does. So watch it and respect it or else do not think about it. 7/10 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review ma'ark t An OK drama but a bit ho hum and lacking in any real excitement. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member All about relations between a doctor and his patients, family and work colleagues. Beautiful. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member a quality heart warming French film Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member François Cluzet, una especie de Dustin Hoffman francés y protagonista de las excelentes "Amigos" y "No le Digas a Nadie", protagoniza esta cinta dirigida por el médico Thomas Lilti, acerca de un doctor que ejerce en el campo y que debido al descubrimiento de un tumor cerebral, decide buscar un reemplazo. Su candidata es la doctora Nathalie Delezia (una sólida Marianne Denicourt), quien debe ganarse la confianza y el aprecio de su veterano colega. Esta es una cinta que explora las relaciones humanas, la inminencia de la muerte, la necesidad del contacto y la calidez en el ejercicio de la profesión médica. Sencillamente estupenda.
