Petite Maman

MKE Film Festival

Céline Sciamma's much anticipated follow up to PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE, PETITE MAMAN follows 8-year-old Nelly as she travels to her mom's childhood home after the death of her grandmother. As Nelly explores the house and nearby woods, she befriends a neighbor her own age to whom she bears a striking resemblance. A critical darling, Mark Kermode at Observer UK says PETITE MAMAN "goes straight into my list of the greatest films ever made for children of all ages."
