Petite Maman (2021, 72 minutes).
Céline Sciamma continues to be one of the most accomplished and unpredictable contemporary French filmmakers with her follow up to Portrait Of A Lady On Fire, the uniquely emotional, Petite Maman. This captivating coming of age story explores childhood and a mother-daughter relationship that crosses through time and space for a heartbreakingly hopeful fairytale for all ages. 8-year-old Nelly has just lost her beloved grandmother and is helping her parents clean out her mother’s childhood home. She explores the house and the surrounding woods where her Mom, Marion, used to play and built the treehouse she’s heard so much about. One day her mother abruptly leaves. That’s when Nelly meets a girl her own age in the woods building a treehouse. Her name is Marion. What follows is a tender tale of healing through nurturing and building connection through memories.

★★★★★

– Mark Kermode, The Observer

★★★★★
“Petite Maman hits all the right notes, creating an epic in miniature. One warning: It may leave you a blubbering mess”
– Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail
