Tirez la langue, mademoiselle

Also known as ‘Miss and the Doctors’ (you can see why they stuck to the French title, which literally translates as ’stick out your tongue, miss’), this is a spiky romantic drama from actress-turned-director Axelle Ropert. To make things more complicated, she’s turned the tables right back around and cast a director – Cedric Khan, of ‘Red Lights’ – in the lead role. He plays paediatrician Boris, who begins a love rivalry with his own brother for the affections of a barmaid whose daughter has chronic diabetes. Yes, it all sounds a bit far-fetched and melodramatic to us, too, but reviews from the festivals have largely been enthusiastic.
