This is a film about the initiation of a surgical apprentice in the operating room. To follow the different stages of his initiation is to penetrate a strange and foreign universe that the ordinary citizen merely passes through. The operating room is a hidden microcosm hidden in the heart of the hospital machine where surgeons, anesthetists, nurses and assistants work every day to repair lives. The story that unfolds there focuses on bodies, death, human ingenuity, ambition, pettiness, generosity, fears, and black humor. In the operating room, they are constantly playing with vital things. While describing the day-to-day life of a surgical assistant, this great film highlights the various human, social, power and scientific issues that intertwine or collide in the operating room of a university hospital. Synopsis in French: C'est un film sur l'initiation d'un apprenti chirurgien au bloc opératoire. Suivre les différentes étapes de son initiation, c'est pénétrer un univers étrange et étranger, où le citoyen ordinaire ne fait que passer. Le bloc est microcosme caché au coeur de la machine hospitalière où chirurgiens, anesthésistes, instrumentistes, infirmiers et aides de salle travaillent chaque jour à réparer des vies. L'histoire qui s'y écrivent mettent en scène les corps, la mort, l'ingéniosité de l'homme, , ses ambitions, ses mesquineries, sa générosité, ses peurs et son humour noir. Au bloc il se joue en permanence des choses vitales. Tout en décrivant le quotidien d'un assistant chirurgien, ce grand film met en lumière les différents enjeux humains, sociaux, scientifiques et de pouvoir qui s'entremêlent ou s'entrechoquent dans le bloc opératoire d'un hôpital universitaire.
