Description

Sentimentality is boldly restrained in this end-of-life drama that focuses unflinchingly on death and a professional caregiver that carries the psychological weight in unpredictable ways. David (played with stunning commitment by Tim Roth) is a nurse who works with terminally ill patients. Efficient and dedicated to his profession, he develops strong and even intimate relationships with his patients, often cutting off the family. Much like his feature After Lucia, Michel Franco’s first English language film is an unwavering and honest depiction of human tenderness, pain, and cruelty.


Press

"'Chronic' offers a measured portrait of a hospice nurse who tends to terminally ill patients, respectfully observing his difficult and emotionally draining job while bluntly asking the question: Who cares for the caregiver?" - Variety
