Two of French cinema’s biggest stars shine in this bittersweet drama about the unlikely friendship that develops between Claire (Catherine Frot), a talented but tightly wound midwife, and Béatrice (Catherine Deneuve), the estranged, free-spirited mistress of Claire’s late father. Though polar opposites in almost every way, the two come to rely on each other as they cope with the unusual circumstance that brought them together in this sharp character study from the César-award winning director Martin Provost (Séraphine).

"If you want to fall in love with Catherine Deneuve, don’t start with her youth. Start with her here, in her 70s, and then work your way back."
Mick LaSalle - SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

"Offering plum roles to Catherines Frot and Catherine Deneuve, THE MIDWIFE is a minor-key crowd pleaser about friendship, forgiveness and rolling with the punches."
Ben Croll - INDIEWIRE

"Béatrice is perhaps the polar opposite of what we think about when we think Deneuve, and yet, as with all the other eccentrics she’s played, the actress grounds her through an otherworldly grace and humanity."
Jose Solís - THE FILM STAGE

"THE MIDWIFE eventually devolves into a blandly sentimental register in its second half, which prominently features two mediocre subplots: the cute, but dull romance featuring Olivier Gourmet (“The Son”) and a half-hearted critique of techno-capitalism in the medical field."
Vikram Murthi - ROGEREBERT.COM
