Writer/director Céline Sciamma (Portrait of a Lady on Fire) addresses childhood and family in this exquisite film. Eight-year-old Nelly has just lost her grandmother and her mother is taking the death badly. While her parents empty out the grandmother’s house, Nelly plays in the woods and encounters Marion, who looks like her and is the same age (they are played by twins). Soon they are great friends. It becomes clear to both girls that Marion is in fact Nelly’s mother at the age of eight. Something supernatural, a hallucination, time travel? Sciamma wisely avoids explanations. The miraculous opportunity for understanding to flourish between generations is simply a given. This ‘delicate and moving’ story ‘takes an unusual and thoughtful look at girlhood, motherhood and friendship. It’s enchanting’.
