The eponymous midwife has settled into a life of routine, service, and self-denial, but her world is thrown into chaos when her midwifery unit is being replaced by a high-tech modern facility of which she disapproves, her father dies, and his despised former mistress returns. The latter is played by Catherine Deneuve who delights with a superb performance as a free-spirited, larger than life gambler dying of cancer. Of course we expect they will become friends, but this is far from a simple story of an unlikely friendship. Rather it is a nuanced study of how a ‘woman with foreshortened expectations and a battered heart might react to a woman who has plenty of regrets but a huge gusto for life and limited time’.
