Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

The French, German, and Belgian co-production offers an entertaining mystery thriller that's easy to get caught up in. The narrative unfolds over four episodes, and each one offers enough twists and misleading clues to keep viewers wondering what the truth really is. But the story also centers around a mother's commitment to being the best mother she can be to her daughter, and how, despite all efforts, it simply may not be possible. It's engaging, but some folks may find themselves becoming distracted by the fact that the conversations taking place in French are dubbed in English, and the German exchanges are only subtitled. If you can get past this, The Perfect Mother offers a binge-worthy viewing experience.
