Petite Maman is the latest film from French writer/director Céline Sciamma following the success of her 2019 release Portrait of a Lady on Fire.

The film follows 8 year-old Nelly, who joins her parents in a visit to her mother’s childhood home following the death of her grandmother. While her mother Marion is distracted by organising the house, Nelly is left to amuse herself and discovers a fort in the woods. Unearthing the hideaway Marion built as a child, Nelly also discovers the 8-year old version of her mother, who she quickly befriends. Crafting a charming and fleeting connection between the pair, Petite Maman is a richly emotional fairytale, and a touching dialogue across generations.
