A midwife named Claire (Catherine Frot) gets an unexpected call from her father's former mistress.
•What really stood out to me about this movie was the outstanding performances by the two lead actresses Catherine Frot and Catherine Deneuve. Their characters have such different personalities but it works and it was interesting seeing how their relationship developed over time.
•There's several scenes where you get a look at what a typical day for a midwife looks like and all the amazing work they do.
•About two hours long and moves at a decent pace.
•A surprising amount of humor.
•The story itself wasn't bad at all but at times was a little too predictable.
•A few rough spots with the editing.
•Generic musical score. I've felt like I heard it before in several other foreign movies like this.
•While I liked the movie overall, it's not something I would rush out to see in theaters.
My Rating: 7/10
