Perintö (2020)

PLEASE NOTE: No English dialogue/subtitles!

Neige (Maïwenn), a divorced mother of three, regularly visits her Algerian grandfather in the nursing home where he lives. She loves and respects this pillar of the family who raised her and, above all, protected her from toxic parents. Relationships between the various family members are difficult, rife with bitterness and resentment… Luckily, Neige can count on the good-humoured support of her ex, François (Garrel).

Production notes

Maïwenn returns to her roots by transferring the abundant energy which flows through her films into an intimate, accurate and moving work about grief, family and the transmission of Algerian heritage
