A film that looks at its characters with understanding and acceptance, it is anchored by two iconic actresses - the great Catherine Deneuve, lovely and luminous as Beatrice, and Catherine Frot, a contained, persevering survivor as Claire.
The bothersome and irritating thing about the way The Midwife is written is that we keep hearing story after story about the shared history between Claire and Béatrice, but we never get a solid idea of what that history was.
