Exclusively on MUBI NOW!
Petite Maman (U)
The much-anticipated latest treasure from Céline Sciamma (Portrait of a Lady on Fire, Girlhood) is now showing exclusively on MUBI. After the death of her beloved grandmother, eight-year-old Nelly meets a mysterious girl the same age in the woods. Together they embark on a fantastical journey of discovery which helps Nelly come to terms with her loss. This latest masterwork is a sublime modern fairy tale about the quiet wonder of mother-daughter relationships, told with Sciamma’s typically elegant touch.
