The much-anticipated latest treasure from Céline Sciamma (Portrait of a Lady on Fire, Girlhood), Petite Maman is a sublime modern fairytale about the quiet wonder of mother-daughter relationships. After the death of her beloved grandmother, eight-year-old Nelly 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.
“Heartbreakingly hopeful fairytale for all ages.” Mark Kermode, Observer “Turns a fanciful, fairy-tale notion of family ties into something close to a minor-key masterpiece.” David Fear Rolling Stone
