On Christmas Eve in Paris, Serge is the only on-call emergency doctor available. Struck by a crippling backache, he gets help from a pizza delivery boy who will need to step into the doctor’s shoes. A story where a favour turns into friendship follows Serge and Malek down a rabbit hole of chaos and misadventure as they battle illness, labour and miscommunication well into Christmas morning.
Sympathetic French comedy that never overplays its hand, Docteur is one of those light and serene films that serve almost as a balm for those who want to spend time with good entertainment. – Filmelier
