Cine-Club : Bon rétablissement / Get Well Soon
From Jean Becker, Director of Conversation with my Garderner and My Afternoons with Margueritte, comes a heart-warming tale of finding friends (and hope) in the strangest of places.
After he is hit by a car, Pierre (award-winning actor Gérard Lanvin, Jo’s Boy) must spend four weeks in forced convalescence in hospital. With friends and family coming to see him, other patients from the hospital paying him unsolicited visits and staff dropping in at any hour, Pierre gets more attention than he would ask for.
However, after several weeks of moaning and whining, Pierre eventually starts to make friends with some of the staff and patients, including a feisty but lovable nurse, a Parisian cop (comedian Fred Testot) who is investigating the accident but also has a more personal reason for being at the hospital, and a flighty teen with a dark secret who keeps stealing Pierre’s laptop.
Stuck in his bed with time to think over his mistakes and regrets in life, Pierre comes to realise that his convalescence might be offering him a second chance.
