Midwife, The (12A)


A midwife gets unexpected news from her father's old mistress.

The critical consensus

You can tell almost exactly how matters will end but when it comes to pathos, sharp-eyed observation and barbed humour, The Midwife certainly delivers.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 05/07/2017

Catherine Deneuve and Catherine Frot give it their all in a moving, verging on sentimental, tale of homewrecking and home truths.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 07/07/2017

As solid and unassuming as a antique marble kitchen top.

***(*)(*)David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 07/07/2017

The two women could not be more different but their budding friendship makes for a very touching, endearing film.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 07/07/2017

Deneuve and Frot excel as contrasting women with an account to settle in a tale that combines realism and melodrama.
