Sharply observed look at First Year Med School
30 January 2020 | by mackjay2See all my reviews

Two young students accidentally become friends at the start of medical school. They study together, have ups and downs, and we get a look at the severe trial of a medical education in France. Unlike a typical Hollywood film on this subject, there is no time wasted on romance-- or anything else outside the guys' attempt to pass their rigorous exams. But it's never dry or dull---there's humor and pathos, all excellently acted and directed.
