After the mesmerizing PORTRAIT DE LA JEUNE FILLE EN FEU, Céline Sciamma made this moving jewel of a film about eight year old Nelly, who meets a young version of her mother in the woods where she grew up.

When her grandma dies, Nelly learns for the first time what death means. While they are cleaning up grandma's house, she tries to cope with all her own feelings and also keeps a close eye on her mother Marion, who quite soon decides to head back home as she can't handle it all. Nelly stays behind with her father. He allows her to explore the woods surrounding the house on her own. Wandering around, Nelly meets a girl of her age, looking quite a bit like herself. She introduces herself as Marion.

This subtle and intimate time travel story won't feel fabricated or far-fetched for a single second. Céline Sciamma understands children in a way that effortlessly makes you go along with Nelly's wonderful and touching perception.
