A doctor's work is never done.
21 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

That was the time when doctors made house calls;then there were the office hours;our hero ,a "Toubib" (=doc),is a Good Samaritan,committed to his work ,ceaselessly coming out,to see a terminally-ill old lady in the hospital or visit a hoarse Chanteuse ;needless to say,he gulps his lunch down,eager to come back to his patients .A saint of a doctor!

These goody-two-shoes characters were Noel-Noel's métier :the discreet resistant in "Le Père Tranquille " (1946) or the supervisor with a golden heart who shows delinquent youth the straight and narrow through music and singing in "La Cage Aux Rossignols " (1945,extremely successfully remade as "Les Choristes ")

There is no unifying thread in the screenplay ,but rather a series of vignettes of a doctor's life ,from dusk to dawn and even then....in the night,in the sleepy city , when our good man is going to sleep the sleep of the just,his phone rings.

A vague plot concerns the doc's offspring "Junior" ,who just failed his final exam in medicine ;but following a misunderstanding,dad thinks sonny brilliantly succeeded and he's telling all the world;the helpless son cannot resign himself to telling the truth to his papa ;besides,he 's got a girlfriend whose daddy steps in .

Awful! The boy does not want to become a doctor anymore. The squeeze's daddy does not want her daughter to marry him!

To solve this kind of problems,there is nothing like a good suicide! Do not panic,everything will work out fine afterward.

The movie begins (and ends) with a voice-over which describes the sleepy city of Paris;an imitation of the prologue of Duvivier's " Sous Le Ciel De Paris" ,but without that director's talent and intellect.
