Charlotte Gainsbourg (Nymphomaniac, Antichrist) pays tribute to her mother Jane Birkin, "it girl" of the 60s and 70s, known for daring arthouse and her romance and artistic symbiosis with Serge Gainsbourg ('Je t'aime moi non plus') in her documentary directorial debut. The presence of the camera allows an ever deeper, sometimes painful dialogue that allows memory without getting stuck in the past. "It's a daughter's (Charlotte Gainsbourg) film about her mother (Jane Birkin) that is more universal than one might think, plumbing the depths of childhood love - that love that one always wants to be simple and clear, but that remains resolutely complicated and mysterious - a film that perhaps also, in its own way, asks for proof of love from the other side."
