Mark Kermode writes “Whether you are six or sixty, 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”. After the death of her much-loved grandmother, a little girl goes off to play in the woods near her grandmother’s home and meets an intriguing new friend her own age, who bears a remarkable resemblance to someone from the past. A fairy-story or fable about the barriers that can come between parents and children, beautifully filmed by the director of Portrait of a Lady on Fire, this unusual but unforgettable depiction of intergenerational relationships can’t fail to move you.
