“Is the film a shivery gothic? Sci-fi? A fairytale? A little of each and entirely itself, a brief masterpiece of parents and childhood, past and future.” Danny Leigh, Financial Times.

After her grandmother dies, Nelly is taken to her mother's childhood home. While her parents go about cleaning out the house, Nelly explores the surrounding woods and encounters Marion, a girl exactly Nelly's age and to whom she bears a striking resemblance. The pair become fast friends and incrementally, the girls' eerie similarities yield revelations that merge events of the past with those of the present. 
72 minutes; French with English subtitles
