Storyline

Doctor Knock is a former thug who has become a doctor and arrives in the small village of Saint-Maurice to make his fortune according to a particular method. It will make the villagers believe that they are not as healthy as they might think. It is thus that he will find in each one an imaginary symptom, or not, and thus will be able to exercise his profession lucratively. Under his seductive looks and after gaining the confidence of the village, Knock is on the verge of achieving his ends. But his past catches up with him and an old acquaintance disrupts the doctor's plans.

User Reviews

 
Monsieur docteur knows best, saves the town (and the movie)
21 November 2017 | by djrwSee all my reviews

Witty story, adapted from the book by Jules Romains, about a small French town that meets its new doctor. Monsieur docteur knows best and most citizens love him for whatever he does. A bit of action, a little tear, and plenty of safe humor. The tempo is low, the story is not too exciting but Omar Sy (The Intouchables, Monsieur Chocolat) is holding the movie together with his signature mimics and fast body motion. The scenery is sweet, the music score (Cyrille Aufort) reminded me, with the bittersweet melody, of both Danny Elfman and Yann Tiersen.
