Populaire: Interview with Romain Duris, Déborah François and Régis Roinsard

Out in London on 31st May 2013

With a title that sounds like a self-fulfilling prophecy, Populaire (which literally means popular) is a promising debut for the newcomer director Régis Roinsard. Perfectly mastered, this fresh and colourful vintage romantic comedy, somewhere in between My Fair Lady and Mad Men, is an excellent feel-good movie, a delightful and ephemeral moment of pleasure.

You can also see Populaire at a preview screening held on 8th May as part of the Long Weekend Film Festival organised.

Would it be better to see a French gynaecologist in London? Where should you go? Let's try and answer some of the questions that you might have with a comparative analysis of both gynaecological health systems.
