Petite Maman

Céline Sciamma (2021)

Joséphine Sanz, Gabrielle Sanz, Nina Meurisse Rated U Run time 73 mins

Or Little Mother: Sciamma follows her brilliant Portrait of a Lady on Fire with an equally compelling tale of loss, memory, imagination, and – yes – magic which is rooted in place and the every day.

Superb performances from the Sanz sisters anchor this emotional and ultimately uplifting gem of a movie. A must-see and Mark Kermode’s favorite film of 2021!

Whether you are six or 60, this astonishingly insightful and heartbreakingly hopeful cinematic poem will pierce your heart, broaden your mind and gladden your soul, even as you wipe away tears

A mix of fairytale, ghost story and rites-of-passage journey, this is at heart a cinematic parable about healing intergenerational wounds, about breaching the barriers that inevitably grow between parents and children.”
