[Credits] [Tickets & Termine] [Trailer]

Eight-year-old Nelly has just lost her beloved grand­mo­ther and is hel­ping her par­ents clean out her mother’s child­hood home. She explo­res the house and the sur­roun­ding woods whe­re her mum, Marion, used to play and whe­re she built the tree­house Nelly has heard so much about. One day her mother sud­den­ly lea­ves. That is when Nelly meets a girl of her own age in the woods, buil­ding a tree­house. Her name is Marion.
Taking part in the Berlinale for the second time, Céline Sciamma’s fifth film is a work of gre­at inten­si­ty and matu­ri­ty. Expressed via Claire Mathon’s lumin­ous autum­nal cine­ma­to­gra­phy, the director’s gaze explo­res an important moment in the tran­si­ti­on to adult­hood with poe­tic pre­cisi­on. Once again, Sciamma exami­nes the big ques­ti­ons in life from a reso­lute­ly fema­le per­spec­ti­ve. The power of memo­ry and ima­gi­na­ti­on are explo­red in a uni­que, emo­tio­nal­ly reso­nant experience.
