Following the death of her grandmother, Nelly accompanies her parents to her mother’s childhood home to clean out its contents. There, Nelly meets a neighbor her own age with whom a friendship is formed. “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).
