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 in this sharp character study from the César-award winning director Martin Provost.   (You may recall Catherine Frot for her performance singing terribly out of tune in MARGUERITE).

“Catherine Deneuve is in one of her best roles of her career.” – Ben Croll, Indiewire

“A stellar cast with terrific performances…a crowd-pleaser!” – Justin Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter

“A bittersweet delight.   Rich, thoughtful, and funny.” – Lisa Nesselson, Screen Daily
