Two of French cinemas greatest actresses star in this delightful and captivating film about the development of an unlikely friendship. Catherine Frot (Marguerite) is Claire, a reticent midwife and single mom whose small maternity clinic is about to close, to be replaced by a large hospital. Then one of her father’s former mistresses, impulsive and childless Béatrice (Catherine Deneuve), waltzes into her life wanting to reconnect after a wounding event 30 years ago. Director Martin Provost (Seraphine) has made an authentic and sharp character study full of fine performances.
