73 mins - France 2021 - Subtitles - Dir: Céline Sciamma

Starring: Joséphine Sanz, Gabrielle Sanz and Nina Meurisse

The much-anticipated latest treasure from the director of Portrait of a Lady on Fire, this 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. A favourite of the 2021 Berlin Film Festival, Céline Sciamma’s new masterwork examines childhood, memory and loss with a typically delicate touch, elegantly weaved together into an enchanting and moving depiction of love and acceptance.

“(An) utterly spellbinding little gem…(a) heartbreakingly hopeful fairytale for all ages” - Mark Kermode, The Observer
