Docteur Françoise Gailland Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

A doctor gains a new perspective on her life and career when she faces a life-threatening illness in this drama. Francoise ([[Performer~P27100~Annie Girardot~anniegirardot]]) is a French physician with a very busy schedule. While she's well respected by her patients and colleagues, she has precious little time to spend with her husband Gerard ([[Performer~P56058~Francois Perier~françoisperier]]), her pregnant teenage daughter Elisabeth ([[Performer~P34067~Isabelle Huppert~isabellehuppert]]), or her sullen son Julien ([[Performer~P259340~William Coryn~williamcoryn]]). She somehow manages to find time for her lover Daniel ([[Performer~P11633~Jean-Pierre Cassel~jeanpierrecassel]]), but Francoise's life is already starting to fray at the edges when she receives the upsetting news that she has cancer. Francoise, however, learns to put on a brave face and faces her disease and its difficult treatment with optimism and a fierce resolve. [[Performer~P27100~Annie Giradot~anniegirardot]]'s performance in Docteur Francoise Gailland earned her a Cesar (the French Academy Award). ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
