1 min

It's survival of the fittest for students hoping to study medicine here in France, an ultra-competitive race which has been fictionalized by Thomas Lilti in "The Freshmen", starring Vincent Lacoste. Film critic Lisa Nesselson tells us how she got an insight into the brutal selection process to get into med school. She salutes the youthful talents deployed in "Shéhérazade" and we take a look at Texan tragi-comedy "Thunder Road", which scooped a prize at the 44th Deauville American Film Festival.
