Elie Wajeman’s “Night Doctor” hits theaters June 16. For the occasion we met Vincent Macaigne and Sara Giraudeau. The two performers engage in a surprisingly funny interview that earned the duo a good laugh. Interview to be discovered in the video above.
Night doctor, a captivating film noir
In Night doctor Vincent Macaigne plays Mikaël. At night, he travels around the city helping patients, some of whom are drug addicts. With his pharmacist cousin (Pio Marmaï) he participates in the trafficking of Subutex. But as he asks him to go further and prescribe a more controlled drug, Fentanyl, Mikaël begins to switch. Torn between his wife and his mistress (played by Sara Giraudeau), he knows he must stop with this life. But does not totally manage to extract itself from it.
Directed by Elie Wajeman, Night doctor is a suffocating film noir recalling certain films by Jean-Pierre Melville. Inside, Sara Giraudeau surprises as a captivating femme fatale, just like Vincent Macaigne with his gangster airs. The kind of role in which we have rarely seen the actor and which once again proves all his talent. Finally, the world of a night doctor, rarely shown on the screen and even less in this way, lends itself perfectly to the drama under thriller.
