Vincent Lacoste beset by doubt in Hippocrate
- Imminent filming for Thomas Lilti’s second feature film, also featuring Jacques Gamblin, Reda Kateb and Félix Moati. A 31 Juin Films production
The filming of Thomas Lilti’s second feature film Hippocrate will begin Monday, February 11th. Noticed in 2008 with Les yeux bandés [+see also:
film profile], the director (who also co-signed, amongst other things, the screenplay of Welcome to Argentina [+see also:
interview: Edouard Deluc
film profile]) will delve into a milieu that he knows well, the world of medicine, since he worked as a general practitioner before devoting himself full-time to the cinema. This new opus casts the rising star Vincent Lacoste (nominated for the Best Male Newcomer award in the 2010 Césars for Les Beaux gosses [+see also:
film profile] and who just filmed Jacky au royaume des filles), the experienced Jacques Gamblin (nominated for the Best Actor award in the 2009 and 2011 Césars for The First Day of the Rest of Your Life [+see also:
film profile] and The Name of Loves [+see also:
film profile]), Reda Kateb (revealed in A Prophet [+see also:
interview: Jacques Audiard

film profile], and recently tortured in the opening of the international movie Zero Dark Thirty), Félix Moati (nominated as Best Male Newcomer at the 2013 Césars for Télé Gaucho [+see also:
film profile]), Marianne Denicourt and Carole Franck.
Written by the director with Baya Kasmi, Pierre Chosson and Julien Lilti, the screenplay focuses on Benjamin (Lacoste), an ambitious and very self-confident medical student. For his first internship, he joins his father’s team (Gamblin). And then, of course, nothing goes the way he expected. He is confronted by his own limits, his fears, those of his patients and their families, the doctors and his colleagues. He then embarks on an initiatory journey...
Produced by Agnès Vallée and Emmanuel Barraux for 31 Juin Films, Hippocrate benefits from a France 2 Cinéma coproduction, pre-purchases by Canal+ and Ciné+, an advance on receipts from the CNC and the support of Sofica Manon and Palatine Etoile. Filming will take place over 37 days in the Ile-de-France region and end on April 5th. Le Pacte will handle both French distribution and international sales.
