Heal the Living (12A)


An interweaving of three stories connected to each other via an accident.

The critical consensus

Superbly acted, meticulously detailed hospital drama from Katell Quillévéré.

****(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 24/04/2017

Starts slowly and cautiously, builds into something sublime.

David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 26/04/2017

This is an intelligent, probing and cleverly constructed film but one completely shorn of any dramatic tension.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 26/04/2017

The events in Heal The Living make it sound like an episode of Casualty but director Katell Quillévéré views everything and everyone with such tender-hearted compassion that it builds into an elegantly handled, deeply felt drama.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 29/04/2017

Katell Quillévéré’s audacious feature follows a human heart from donor to recipient, stirring strong emotions and showing breathtaking visual skill.

*****Wendy Ide, The Observer, 30/04/2017
