This selection offers drama but often with a touch of comedy, and although there are some serious themes, and occasional violence or tragedy, there isn't anything too 'heavy'.

Médecin de Campagne
Médecin de Campagne
We're in rural France were the local doctor, Jean-Pierre Werner, keeps the inhabitants healthy through a combination of years of experience and a very pragmatic approach. At the start of the film we see him diagnosed with a brain tumour and being told that he must slow down. But, he's not that sort of man, and he continues with his work, which is clearly very important to him.

His consultant at the hospital, obviously conscious of Jean-Pierre's stubbornness, arranges for another doctor to help him, Nathalie Delezia, who Jean-Pierre mistakes as a patient when she arrives late in the day at his surgery. One can see that he initially resents her presence, being somewhat picky when overseeing her dealings with patients. But she isn't easily upset, and gradually eases her way into the practice.

Initial concerns from some of the patients, who have become dependant on 'Dr Werner', gives way to acceptance and in time she becomes the doctor of choice for some of them. She is, however, unaware of Jean-Pierre's illness but following an incident when on an emergency call, Jean-Paul has his collar bone X-rayed, and Nathalie notices spots on his lungs. She says nothing, but later checks with the consultant at the hospital, who confirms Jean-Pierre's illness.

At times it seems that a romantic connection is developing between Jean-Pierre and Nathalie, something hinted at by Jean-Paul's son. There are certainly a few 'knowing' looks, but will it develop into anything? And what is Jean-Pauls's prognosis?
