Petite Maman Rated U

Petite Maman

Dir. Céline Sciamma. France, 2021. 1h 13m. French/subs. Starring Joséphine Sanz, Gabrielle Sanz, Nina Meurisse, Stéphane Varupenne, Margot Abascal.

Following her grandmother’s death, eight-year-old Nelly travels to the old woman’s home to help her parents pack everything up. In a nearby forest, she meets a mysterious girl and together they embark on a fantastical journey of discovery. A delicate and powerfully acted depiction of love and childhood from acclaimed filmmaker Céline Sciamma (Girlhood, Portrait of a Lady on Fire).

‘Petite Maman is short and sweet, yet fearlessly profound. A mix of fairytale, ghost story and rites-of-passage journey…Goes straight into my list of the greatest films ever made for children of all ages.’ ★★★★★ Mark Kermode, The Observer

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