Following the death of her beloved grandmother, 8-year-old Nelly accompanies her parents to her mother’s childhood home to begin the difficult process of cleaning out its contents. As Nelly explores the house and nearby woods, she is immediately drawn to a neighbor her ownage building a treehouse. What follows is a tender tale of childhood grief, memory and connection.

"A lovely and delicate lesson on processing big emotions in tiny packages." (NOW Toronto)

"“Petite Maman” is what every film should be: powerfully, even arrestingly original; grounded in emotional truth; hyper-specific; deeply universal; strange; mesmerizing; and not a minute longer than necessary." (Washington Post)

"It’s a perfect creation in miniature, one that doesn’t have a wasted frame but that also never feels like it’s in a rush." (New York Magazine / Vulture)

"Sciamma is weaving a spell here, so pure in its emotional resonance that it breaks your heart even as it heals wounds." (Rolling Stone)
