In the family-owned clinic two enemy surgeon brothers battle it out with comedic energy: nasty betrayals, sizzling love stories with the beautiful Priscilla and the greedy Samantha Bitch, mean money problems are all on the menu of this delirious parody of TV American dramas from ER to Grey’s Anatomy. All the codes are pushed to an extreme absurdity including the hilarious acting.
“With a farce-inspired story that includes everything from ricocheting bullets and alternative anaesthesia methods to Canuck brown bears and plastic-surgery how-to handbooks, this is the kind of film where the plot keeps thickening until the gleefully clichéd characters actually become affecting in their manic search for storybook happiness” (Boyd Van Hoeij, Variety.com)
Artus de Penguern, a co-scriptwriter, director and actor, often compared to Buster Keaton and Chaplin, delivers an offbeat, tangy pastiche with “a Voltairian touch” (Jean-Patrick Géraud)
A riotous, screwball comedy to be prescribed over the counter!
