The Midwife

Martin Provost’s The Midwife is a sharp character study that features terrific performances from two of French cinema’s most beloved stars, Catherine Deneuve and Catherine Frot. The life of a gifted but tightly wound midwife (Frot) is jolted when her late father’s frivolous, amoral mistress (Deneuve) resurfaces 30 years after disappearing without a trace. Though polar opposites in every way, the two women gradually come to rely on each other to cope with the unusual circumstance that brings them together.
