After the death of her beloved grandmother, eight-year-old Nelly meets a strangely familiar girl her own age in the woods. Instantly forming a connection with this mysterious new friend, Nelly embarks on a fantastical journey of discovery which helps her come to terms with this newfound loss.

As with 'Portrait of a Lady on Fire', Sciamma once again makes sparse but pointed use of music, with an 1980s-tinged song to accompany this blissful interlude of surreal childhood adventure, perfectly encapsulating the dreams, aspirations and quietly rebellious spirit of this utterly spellbinding little gem.

★★★★★ "Whether you are six or 60, this astonishingly insightful and heartbreakingly hopeful cinematic poem will pierce your heart, broaden your mind and gladden your soul, even as you wipe away tears." - Mark Kermode, The Guardian
