“A story even more delicate and moving than Sciamma’s last effort, this takes an unusual and thoughtful look at girlhood, motherhood and friendship.” Helen O’Hara, Empire Magazine

“Guileless and astute in its observation of childhood, Petite Maman is a fairytale without fringes and definitely one of the most touching films of the year.” Dustin Cheng, ScreenAnarchy

Nelly, a quiet eight-year-old, has just lost her grandmother and is helping her parents clean out her mother’s childhood home. She explores the house and the surrounding woods. One day she meets a girl her same age building a treehouse and the pair quickly become friends. From Céline Sciamma (PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE), PETITE MAMAN is a delicate, powerfully acted meditation on grief.
