Trivia

Emmanuelle Bercot's father was a heart surgeon at the Hôpital Lariboisière, hence the director's good knowledge of the hospital setting. See more »

Goofs

Every time the research team is using a computer, it's running Windows 7, which was released in late 2009. The hospital could have been using pre-release software, but this is highly unlikely for medical facilities, used to very slow upgrade and rollout plans. During the 2009-2010 timeframe, they were probably still all using Windows XP. See more »

Brave doctor takes on manufacturer over deadly drug
14 September 2016 | by franknacsaSee all my reviews

Physician realizes that there is a link between patient deaths and a commonly used diabetes drug. She naively thinks that pointing this out will lead to action to pull the drug. But instead, she encounters bureaucratic roadblocks, manufacturer denial, threats of lawsuits and to her career, as well as to her colleagues, and of course the always used need for further study. Basically greed on the part of drug maker, which has money for access to top specialists/consultants doing their bidding, and infiltrates agencies supposedly entrusted with protecting the public. Will not give away more here.

Excellent not just as a social statement, but also for drama and suspense, as well as a slice of the human dimension in these types of stressful situations that a person may encounter. My comments based on seeing the film at its World Premier at TIFF. Additional comment is that the director at the Q&A after the film stated that the film is very faithful to the original story.
