With the tremor of time passing by, Charlotte Gainsbourg started to look at her mother Jane Birkin in a way she never did, overcoming a shared sense of reserve. Through the camera lens, they expose themselves to one another and begin to step back, leaving space for a mother-daughter relationship.

Our take

A luminous study of her iconic mother Jane Birkin, Charlotte Gainsbourg’s directorial debut is so startlingly intimate that it feels as if we are eavesdropping on family secrets. Shedding their mythologized image, the celebrated duo mull on love and loss as they leaf through extraordinary memories.
