A 35 mm film image is quite grainy. Its quite hard to keep plane. There is some diffusion of light in the medium. It has to be enlarged in the darkroom. All this makes it much better to use a bigger format. So, medium format is superior.

This is also why tiny sensor cameras today are much, much better than small negative cameras, and in some respects even better than 35 mm film cameras.
