De chaque instant Nicolas Philibert

Film index A to Z

Each and Every Moment

After focusing his lens on a classroom (Être et avoir), a menagerie (Nénette) and Radio France (La maison de la radio), Nicolas Philibert takes us inside another fascinating space for study, experimentation and observation: a nursing school. Theoretical instruction, practical training and internships with real patients are all part of the story, while the students take an emotional rollercoaster ride: passion and doubt, initiation to their work, concentration on their studies, pressure in the field. From impeccable hand-washing to preparing patients for complex scans, the students need to be sharp at all times. By filming their meetings with their guidance counsellors, Philibert gets a glimpse of the students’ introspection, which he captures with deep empathy. (ACO)
