The Night Doctor (2020)

Elie Wajeman directs Vincent Macaigne, Sara Giraudeau and Pio Marmaï in this Paris-set neo-noir where a philandering but good hearted GP makes his nightly house calls to addicts and the infirm while pressure is put on him to write fake prescriptions for fentanyl.

Not ground breaking but adequate. Mean Streets and Taxi Driver are obvious influences on the plot and you’ll know where this is ultimately headed to very early on. Vincent Macaigne is not an obvious sex symbol but in French cinema anyone with access to a leather jacket seemingly can have a gorgeous wife and one or two ladies on the side every night.
