Tomorrow and thereafter

Mathilde is just 9 years old, but the life she shares alone with her mother is not without its challenges. They love each other, and mum is adorable, but at the same time she’s unstable, fragile and unpredictable. With her father only appearing in the odd Skype call, and no other friends or family in sight, it’s up to Mathilde to be there for mum and take care of the day-to-day when she can’t. When her mother gives her a pet owl as a present, Mathilde finds a new friend in the animal, not least because it turns out it can speak, in addition to offering the young girl some valuable life advice when the two of them are alone in their room. But can a kid really trust what an owl has to say?

Noémie Lvovsky stars and directs in this delightful, bittersweet tale of fantastical mother-daughter bonding, touching on deeper themes of childhood hardships and mental illness via a light-footed and humorous allegorical style. A  world of fantasy, music and poetry with young Luce Rodriguez, a discovery in the role of Mathilde, as its beating heart.
