The Night Doctor

The Night Doctor

Élie Wajeman takes the viewer into the misery of addiction in northeastern Paris and directs a sumptuous, tense, and breathless thriller with social realist overtones. Vincent Macaigne powerfully portrays an ambiguous, serious, and seductive doctor of the forgotten, humanist.

Mikael is an after-hours doctor. It’s a vocation. Between two patient visits in slum areas, he cares for those whom no one else wants to see: the drug addicts, the homeless… He rubs shoulders with destitution. Torn between his wife and mistress, his life is in shambles. Especially when it comes to his pharmacist cousin who makes him write false prescriptions for Subutex. One night, he decides to get out of drug trafficking and rebuild his life. But there will be a heavy price to pay.
