Petite Maman

"There’s no fluff, just an unusual exploration of the mother-daughter bond -- and this stunning premise: What would a child encounter if they met their parent as a youth? The answer is an emotional experience like no other." Thelma Adams. AARP Movies for Grownups

Following the death of her beloved grandmother, 8-year-old Nelly accompanies her parents to her mother's childhood home to begin the difficult process of cleaning out its contents. As Nelly explores the house and nearby woods, she is immediately drawn to a neighbor her own age building a treehouse. What follows is a tender tale of childhood grief, memory and connection.

Petite Maman - FILM REVIEW

"...Sciamma once again makes sparse but pointed use of music, with an 1980s-tinged song co-written with regular collaborator Para One (AKA Jean-Baptiste de Laubier) accompanying a blissful interlude of surreal childhood adventure, perfectly encapsulating the dreams, aspirations and quietly rebellious spirit of this utterly spellbinding little gem."
