Why You Should See This Film

Céline Sciamma is one of our favourite contemporary filmmakers. Every new work from the director reveals a new facet of her unique storytelling talent. Petite Maman is utterly beautiful in its simplicity, a spellbinding and confident work about family, identity and loss — gorgeously shot by Portrait of a Lady on Fire cinematographer Claire Mathon. We highly recommend sinking into its world.
