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 US). She wrote the script alongside Jeremie Elkaim (noted actor and husband of director Valerie Donzelli), which 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. A co-dependent relationship ensues, but one that soon leads to tragedy.
