Director's Statement

"Since I am a doctor it’s a world I know particularly well so I’m able to give a sense of detail, depict situations and characters that are credible and authentic. It provides me with a rich canvas to tell stories.

... I wanted the film to give a perspective on medicine from both genders, and it was important for me to have a female character who can be both strong and gentle. Denicourt has shot with the greatest filmmakers and I was lucky to cast her for a small but significant role in “Hippocrates.” This film, “Irreplaceable,” gave me the opportunity to give her a meatier role."
