I liked it!
25 May 2017 | by petarmaticSee all my reviews

I have to say that this film was simpa. Plot is set in a hospital in Paris and shows all the horrors which doctors and patients have to live thru. Acting is very good and main characters show truly how life of a doctor in the hospital in France can be hard and complicated. It also shows well suffering of the patients and what their families have to live thru when mistakes are made by the doctors. If you are a fan of the European cinematography and want to see how life in every day France looks like I recommend that you see this film. Otherwise you will not miss too much by not watching it.
