) and Marianne Denicourt (nominated for the César Award for Best Supporting Actress in 2015 for her performance in Hippocrates).

Written by Thomas Lilti together with Baya Kasmi (winner of the César Award for Best Screenplay in 2011 for The Names of Love [+see also:

), the story revolves around a rural doctor who, for a long time, has been practising in an area with poor healthcare coverage, and who now has to find a replacement to take over from him. In September last year, the filmmaker described the plot to Cineuropa as “following on from Hippocrates a little bit in terms of tone, teetering between drama and comedy, and still revolving around a singular group of people and rooted in a modern-day social problem”.

As was the case for Hippocrates, the movie is produced by Agnès Vallée and Emmanuel Barraux for 31 Juin Films. Irreplacable is benefiting from a co-production by France 2 Cinéma and backing from Canal+. Distribution in France and international sales will be handled by Le Pacte
