    A quick search didn't throw up anything on this one.

    The new Celine Sciamma film (she directed portrait of a lady on fire).

    Saw in the lighthouse at the weekend went in totally blind. Which I would recommend, watching the trailer gives away too much imo.

    An absolute little gem of a film, the central kids are brilliant, I found it deeply moving it packs a lot of lovely stuff into it's tiny 72 minutes.

    Copy and pasted thoughts from the 'What have you watched recently' thread. Definitely in the top three films of the year I've seen (tied with the two Ryusuke Hamaguchi films), and one I can see myself revisiting regularly as it has the magnificent sort of 'warm, friendly hug' energy of something like My Neighbour Totoro.

    in her follow-up to the transcendent Portrait of a Lady on Fire, Celine Sciamma continues to make her stake to greatest working filmmaker with this impossibly gorgeous little movie. It’s best to let its surprises unravel at the film’s own careful pace, but it’s the rare film that captures a very particular magic: a tale of childhood wonder, sadness and curiosity that actually feels more real and true thanks to matter-of-fact magical realism. It’s not even 75 minutes long, and yet it delivers in ways far beyond it modest running time and scope (what a joy to see Sciamma make her smallest-scale film after her largest-scale one). Just the loveliest film you’ll see in a cinema this year… or most other years for that matter.

    A heads up that this is on Mubi from midnight. Very possibly the best film released in the last year (IMO anyway).

    There's another thread about it here, as well as some discussion about it in the Mubi thread.
