From one day to the next, Claire's life is turned upside down. The clinic where she has worked as a midwife for years closes; her only son tells her he is going to be a father and drops out of medical school. Then she falls in love with Paul, the humorous neighbor from the allotment garden colony. And as if all that were not enough, Béatrice bursts into her life. Béatrice is the former lover of her late father and exactly the opposite of the conscientious and reserved Claire. She is flamboyant, loud, self-centered and fun-loving: worlds collide.

La délicatesse qui porte tout le film n'est jamais soulignée. Mais elle entoure d'affection les personnages et leurs interprètes, particulièrement, bien sûr, les deux Catherine. Elles sont tout à la fois romanesques et vraies, plus natures et plus brillantes que jamais.

Frédéric Strauss

Sage Femme fait preuve d'une réelle acuité documentaire et parvient à tenir un discours nuancé sur la question de la précarité. Fantasque et mordante, Catherine Deneuve excelle en trublion glamour.

Emily Barnett

Un récit de femmes épris de liberté, qui convie l’intimisme et le romanesque au détour des jeux grandioses des deux grandes Catherine du cinéma français, Deneuve et Frot.

Frédéric Mignard
