Director Céline Sciamma (Portrait of A Lady on Fire2019) latest is a delicate, wonderfully beguiling tale about the power of memory and imagination. Following her grandmother’s death, eight-year-old Nelly (Joséphine Sanz) is helping her parents clean out her mother’s childhood home. She explores the house and the surrounding woods where her mum, used to play. After her mother suddenly leaves, Nelly befriends a girl (Gabrielle Sanz) of her own age in the woods, with whom she finds she has a remarkable amount in common.
