Synopsis

Deeply intimate, Small Talk breaks the taboo surrounding unconditional maternal love. The film director tries to understand her own mother, who, married very young, divorced and raised her two daughters alone. She then became a taoist priestess and has been engaging relentlessly in unspoken - yet obvious- relationships with women. The desire of the mother and the daughter to get closer to each other is undeniable, despite the hurdles. Won the Teddy award for best documentary at 2017 Berlinale.
