Two of France’s favourite stars come together in this amusing but poignant film. Claire (Catherine Frot), a midwife devoted to her work, has an orderly life. Thirty years after her father’s death she is contacted by the glamourous but chaotic Beatrice (Catherine Deneuve), her father’s former mistress, who is terminally ill and wants to make amends.
