Àma Gloria (12A)

Six-year-old Cléo (Louise Mauroy-Panzani) loves her nanny Gloria (Ilça Moreno Zego) more than anything. When Gloria suddenly has to resign and return home to Cape Verde to look after her own children, she promises the devasted Cléo that they will see each other again very soon.

True to her word, Gloria invites Cléo to spend her summer holiday with her in Cape Verde and when Cléo’s father finally agrees they set out to make the most of their summer together.

An exquisite exploration of family, separation and the ties that bind people together told from the point of view of a capricious young protagonist.

“Deeply moving. A debut made dazzling by an astonishingly intricate performance from its six-year-old star.” Variety

Directed by Marie Amachoukeli-Barsacq.
