the loneliness of a doctor
3 November 1999 | by ale-31See all my reviews

How do people win loneliness? A doctor can be a good help, especially if you live in a French small town. And when the doctor is an incurable idealist, everything is easier. His diagnoses are worth their weight in gold and things can begin to change slowly. The loser is probably the same doctor who cannot find peace for his heart. The directeur is a thoughtful and sympathetic observer of his hero but he works very well.
