Petite Maman (U)

The much-anticipated latest treasure from Céline Sciamma is a sublime modern fairytale about the quiet wonder of mother-daughter relationships.

After the death of her beloved grandmother, eight-year-old Nelly (Joséphine Sanz) meets a mysterious friend in the woods. Together they embark on a fantastical journey of discovery which helps Nelly come to terms with this newfound loss.

A favourite at the 2021 Berlin Film Festival, the new masterwork from Céline Sciamma (Portrait of a Lady on Fire) examines childhood, memory and loss with a typically delicate touch, elegantly weaved together into an enchanting and moving depiction of love and acceptance.
