), the story revolves around 37-year-old Simon, an experienced doctor who rubs shoulders with death on a daily basis as part of his job in an intensive care unit. Like any good professional, he has learnt to shield himself from it. But when his mother is hospitalised in a nearby unit, and is in a critical condition, his private life and professional life clash spectacularly. Simon’s whole world, and all his certainties and beliefs, are shaken to the core – even to the extent of re-evaluating his career...

Produced by Candice Zaccagnino for ElianeAntoinette, L’Ordre des médecins is being co-produced by Olivier Aknin for Reboot Films. Having been pre-purchased by Canal+ and OCS, the film is also receiving support from Ciclic (the Centre-Val de Loire region). The cinematography will be entrusted to Chrystel Fournier (who has worked on Céline Sciamma’s three features, plus These Are the Rules [+see also:

by Ognjen Svilicic, among others). The French distribution and international sales will be helmed by Pyramide.
