Little Girl Blue

"In order for a person to start over again from zero – that is, with a clear head and a clean conscience – they first have to go back to zero,” says director Alice Nellis of Little Girl Blue, based on her own screenplay and produced by Oscar-winning director Jan Svěrák.

Julie’s got it all. A well-behaved daughter, an attractive lover, work as a translator that she does for her own enjoyment since she is supported by her successful and nurturing husband. When furnishing her dream home, however, she comes to the realisation that there is something desperately lacking: a piano. She thus leaves the security of her daily routine – on a seemingly senseless pilgrimage with a painful balance lurking at its end, the stakes being both the past and the future of her real relationships and values.
