MUBI has announced that writer and director Céline Sciamma‘s tender and beautiful drama, PETITE MAMAN, which was recently nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best Film Not In The English Language, will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on 21st March 2022.
This beautifully understated drama returns the director to her preoccupation with coming-of-age stories to typically masterful effect, offering an entrancing look at the delicate connection between mother and daughter.
PETITE MAMAN tells the story of eight-year-old Nelly’s fantastical journey after the death of her beloved grandmother. While helping her mother clear out her childhood home, Nelly begins to explore the surrounding woodland and encounters a strangely familiar girl her own age. Instantly forming a connection with this mysterious new friend, Nelly embarks on a formative flight of fancy that encourages her to come to terms with this newfound loss.
Featuring exceptional central performances from real-life twins Joséphine and Gabrielle Sanz, Sciamma’s warm and gently profound new film mixes the intimate with the fantastical with her characteristically delicate touch, weaved together into a tale of childhood, memory and loss that will resonate with audiences young and old.
