DR. KNOCK
Starring Omar Sy

Omar Sy (Intouchables, Monsieur Chocolat, Jurassic World) headlines the latest adaptation of Jules Romains classic satirical 1923 play, Knock ou le Triomphe de la médecine.

France, 1950. Dr. Knock is a former conman-turned-GP who arrives in the sleepy village of St-Maurice with a plan to make himself rich: persuade healthy people they are ill and simply don’t realise it.

Knock’s strategy is coming together just as planned, until he falls for the beautiful Adèle (Back To Burgundy, Alliance Française French Film Festival 2018). The suspicions of the local priest (Alex Lutz) are raised, and the darker elements of his past inevitably catch up with him and his idyllic new life.

Taking the role made famous on stage and screen by Louis Jouvet, Omar Sy breathes new life into the character of Dr. Knock, adding additional layers of complexity to one of France’s most enduring performance pieces.
