Nurse strikes, ‘Yellow Vests’ protests, police blockages and politicians who don’t listen. France is on a meltdown in Catherine Corsini new feature film. The film centers around one night at a public hospital; a broken hospital symbolising a broken France. It is filled with chaos but also with comic reliefs and personal stories. The Cannes winning director, Catherine Corsini, will be present after the film to talk about her thoughts behind it and answer all of your questions.


“Lesbian couple, Raf and Julie, are on the brink of breaking up. One day Raf slips, breaks her elbow, and is rushed to a public hospital. Julie accompanies her, even though she is about to leave and never come back. At the hospital they are met by chaos and staff shortage because of nurse strikes and injured yellow vest protesters. On the surface, ‘La Fracture’ revolves around just the one night they have to spend in the hospital. But digging deeper, this night shows some of France’s biggest political problems of the time.” – Synopsis

“A traumatic trip to a Paris Emergency Room leaves an unshakeable impression” – Variety

“A film about rebellion but also about human hope. It is a true mirror of our time” – Ouest France
