FRA | 2016 | dir. Martin Provost, with Catherine Deneuve, Catherine Frot, Olivier Gourmet

Claire (Catherine Frot) is a midwife with a natural talent to deliver babies with the most gentle touch. But over the years, she starts to question her place and her skills in efficiency-driven modern hospitals. One day she receives a strange phone call, a voice from the past. Béatrice (Catherine Deneuve), the extravagant and frivolous mistress of her deceased father, has important and pressing news and wants to see her again, 30 years after having disappeared without a trace. Catherine Deneuve and Catherine Frot are at the top of their game in this bittersweet comedy.
