UK PREMIERE

The Midwife (Sage femme)

Part of the European Perspectives Strand

Body

It is a case of Catherine v Catherine in this sparkling French drama as the twin talents of Catherine Deneuve and Catherine Frot share memorable screen time. Frot plays an ordered and sensible midwife whose life gets unexpectedly complicated when her father’s flighty and disorganised former lover (Deneuve) arrives back in Paris having been given just a year to live. Funny, astute and gently melodramatic, this latest film from Martin Provost (who made award-winning Séraphine) is a delightful character study driven by two wonderful performances.
