Storyline

Dr. Roussel (Jean-Pierre Bacri) is one of the handful of French doctors who earns really outstanding compensation. Dr. Olivier Rohan (Stephane Freiss) has just finished qualifying in his specialty (cardiology) and is one of the vast number of young doctors who don't earn very much at all. He has just entered into private practice but is happy to earn a few extra dollars by filling in for Dr. Roussel in answering nighttime emergencies at the local hospital. However, his first emergency puts him squarely into the middle of a dicey political situation with the ultra-right-wing Nouvelle France party. When he becomes aware of the extent of medical corruption and collusion with the political system, he is horrified.

I give up!
7 July 2008 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

Yves Boisset has made several courageous movies ,he has often taken risks ,his most salutary quality has always been his social and political commitment.His movies have supported leftist causes ,sometimes at considerable personal and professional expense.

But here his approach to political cinema is so muddled ,so far-fetched and so naive it's nearly unbearable.

"La Tribu" wants to denounce political skulduggery ;it revolves around an imaginary extreme right wing party "France Nouvelle" which exists in the real world under the "Front National" label.

Enough is enough! the students' blue jokes (to give the story a realistic side),"accidents",pedophilia,drugs,a lot of heart attacks ,autopsies, blackmail ,aids,Jews ......The audience is compelled to give up in front of this spate of clichés.

A piece of advice:some good films by Yves Boisset:

RAS (1973)

Dupont-Lajoie (1974)

Allons z' Enfants (1981)

Le Pantalon (MTV)
