Thomas Lilti's 'Irreplaceable' is one of those films that quietly drops into a few city cinemas for a short time and then disappears. Jean-Pierre Werner (Francois Cluzet), a compassionate and dedicated French country doctor is diagnosed with a brain tumour. Will the irreplaceable Dr Werner accept Dr Natalie Delezia (Marianne Denicourt) as a locum? The country practice is his life's work.

Gentle and episodic with quiet comic touches and strong performances from Francois Cluzet and Marianne Denicourt, we follow the day-to-day workings of a country practice and an emerging relationship bound by mutual respect. It's a mini delight.

'Irreplaceable' screens for two weeks at Ciné Lumière starting from Friday 13th January, tickets can be booked here: http://www.institut-francais.org.uk/cine-lumiere/whats-on/new-releases/i...
