Little Girl Blue
An unconventional non-fiction expression of the life of French actress, photographer and poet Carole Achache, embodied through a committed performance by Marion Cotillard.
Directed by her daughter Mona, the filmmaker masterfully interprets her mother’s fascinating life and lineage through letters and archival recordings, channelled through Cotillard’s mesmerising interpretation of the woman. A loving testament to her mothers legacy, unafraid to examine their mutual traumas, the film pushes the boundaries of the documentary hybrid form, and is a profound meditation on grief. RG
