Lullaby/ Chanson douce (N/C 15+)

Director Lucie Borleteau makes her second feature outing with Chanson Douce, an adaptation of the novel by Leila Slimani (known as The Perfect Nanny in the States). The script, which she wrote alongside Jeremie Elkaim (noted actor and husband of director Valerie Donzelli), concerns Myriam, a mother of two who decides to return to work despite her husband’s reservations. After an extensive search for a babysitter, they find Louise, who immediately wins the affections of the children. Soon, however, a co-dependent relationship ensues and eventual tragedy. Borleteau’s first feature, 2014 Fidelio: Alice’s Odyssey, scored a César nomination for Best First Feature.

Cast Karin Viard, Antoine Reinartz, Leïla Bekhti
