Maria Montessori’ tells the impressive story of a woman ahead of her time; a woman who fought for her new method of education in a time dominated by men. In Rome in the early 20th century, Maria Montessori (Jasmine Trinca) meets the successful French courtesan Lili d’Alengy (Leïla Bekhti). Lili has fled Paris to protect her reputation when her daughter’s learning disability threatened to come to light. At that moment, Maria lays the foundations for her new and pioneering teaching method. Through Maria, Lili gets to know her daughter as she is: not just a girl with a disability, but someone with a strong will and talents. In turn, Lili helps Maria fulfil her ambitions.

‘Maria Montessori’ is a poignant story about the strength of women; about sacrifice and about solidarity. A film embraced by the International Montessori Association: “This is an exceptional film about some groundbreaking years that helped Maria Montessori shape her views and insights on human development and education. The film beautifully depicts the challenges posed by society: a young doctor in a male-dominated world, a scientist and a new mother. Léa Todorov’s sensitive direction is characterised by authenticity. Highly recommended.” – Lynne Lawrence, Executive Director, Association Montessori Internationale
