French Film Review: Le Retour

Khédidja (Aissatou Diallo Sagna) works for a wealthy Parisian family who invite her to mind their children for a summer in Corsica. Bringing along her own two teenage daughters, Jessica and Farah, it is an opportunity for them to go back to the island they left in tragic circumstances 15 years earlier. While their mother grapples with her memories, the two girls indulge in all the usual summer temptations: unexpected encounters, teenage mischief and first-love experiences. Meanwhile, questions are surfacing about their distant past on the island, leading them to dig deeper into their mother’s version of the family story.
