Is It Any Good?

It seems like a good story in its original form -- a whimsical nanny full of mayhem and silliness takes her charge on wild adventures around Paris -- but something is off about this translation. It often feels like two separate stories: one of a nanny who loves the child she cares for and another involving a sinister jewel heist involving thieves, underground caves, and ancient treasures. The plots jump around, and, due to random segues and strange translations, never quite feel like they come together. Plus, the nanny's excessive head-in-the-clouds antics and very last-minute surprise competency bring into serious question why this family would even continue to employ her. Kids may love the nonsensical, fantastical silliness, but, for parents, this one may be a little too out there to enjoy.
