A superb French film about the special bond between a young French girl and her nanny with stunning central performances.
Cléo, a bundle of personality under a tangle of hair, lives in Paris with her Dad, Arnaud (Arnaud Rebotini), but is raised mostly by her beloved Cape Verdean nanny Gloria (Ilça Moreno Zego). When Gloria has to return to Cape Verde following the death of her mother, the thought of a holiday vacation eases the initial separation and provides an opportunity to visit. There are brief animated interludes in this moving family drama which is propelled by the extraordinary central performances of both actresses. An utterly charming, and equal parts heart-warming and heart-breaking French drama.
