Petite Maman (2021)

Bittersweet autumnal delicacy by the craftswoman behind POALOF, Petite Maman is a narratively-deistic joy of ethereal cinematic finesse – a variegated daydream exploring themes of grief, parental bonds, and childhood impossibly-unraveled in 72 minutes. 9.3/10.

Plot Synopsis: Nelly, an 8-year-old girl, has just lost her beloved grandmother and is helping her parents clean out her mother’s childhood home. One day, her mom abruptly leaves, and Nelly meets a girl her age as she’s building a tree house in the woods.
