“I’m in trouble…”

The Perfect Mother (Une Mère Parfaite) premiered on June 3rd 2022 on Netflix with four episodes available to stream now. The mystery-thriller series stars Julie Gayet, Eden Ducourant and Tomer Sisley. Each episode runs for approximately 45-50 minutes.

A mother risks everything to find out the truth when she learns that her daughter is a suspect in a murder investigation.

Here is the trailer:

The Perfect Mother is an addicting mystery thriller with a shocking ending. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

Easy to binge-watch.

With only four episodes, I was able to finish this series in a little over three hours. I think this was a really smart decision. This show could have easily gone off track if it had eight episodes like most Netflix series and it was refreshing watching something so quickly. I didn’t feel like I had to work to get to the end. It all just unraveled naturally and it was very entertaining to watch.

A twist I did not see coming!

Wow, what a twist! This was probably the best part of the series for me. I thought things were wrapping up and then we were thrown a curve ball that really made this series so much more enjoyable. 

The mystery was a good one, but the twist was truly fantastic. If you enjoy series like Pieces of Her and the Harlan Coben series, you will feel right at home with this one.

The Cons:

Unnecessary sub-plots and slow at times…

Since we only had four episodes, we didn’t really need the sub-plots mixed in. They slowed down the overall pace and they took away from the main mystery, which was decent enough. The episodes could have been a little shorter to keep things on track and I would have been fine with that.

So am I in or out?

I’m in!

This series had a solid mystery with a fantastic twist worth sticking around for. If you’re looking for a quick series to binge-watch, you’re in the right place!
