Adapted by the director from the eponymous novel, winner of the Goncourt prize in 2016, the film offers a true pedestal to Karin Viard who seizes with formidable mastery this role of a disturbed nanny whose mask of perfection gradually cracks. A bitter-sweet reflection on motherhood, marriage, love, and Parisian life in general which is set to echo the novel’s elusively engrossing drama!


When mother of two children Myriam decides to go back to work despite her husband’s initial reluctancy, the couple starts looking for a Nanny. After a very selective process, they finally find the perfect candidate, Louise, a poised 40-year old woman who is an instant hit with everyone. But as Louise makes herself indispensable to the family, she starts revealing her unsettling true self. – Plot

Besides the extraordinary performance from Karin Viard (who had acquired the rights of the novel herself, which shows just how well she knew that the role would fit her like a glove), sufficiently nuanced to elicit real empathy and a minimum of kindness towards a character who could easily be reduced to a pure psychopath, « Lullaby » plays the card of dramatic suspense to the point where it comes close to the horror film. – Cineuropa

Watch the trailer with English subtitles here:


The screening will take place at Cinéma Studio 28, the oldest in Paris, located in the beautiful and historic neighborhood of Montmartre. We’ll be hosting cocktail hour (including mulled wine) at 8pm. At 9pm, the screening begins! Tickets available at the door only – please arrive early to avoid disappointment.


Lost in Frenchlation and Ciné-Balade have teamed up to bring you a walk through cinema history in Montmartre, from Saint-Vincent Street to the Basilica of the Sacred Heart. You will discover one of the most filmed districts of Paris where each director drew on the story of the hill and its artists. Amelie from Montmartre will be our common thread with other famous French or American movies as An American in Paris, A Monster in Paris, Woody Allen’s films… The walk starts at 6pm and lasts for approximately 2 hours. ☞ LIMITED TICKETS:

When a movie has a title like Perfect Nanny (US title) you can be pretty sure that the eponymous character will be anything but perfect…
