The Madeline Movie: Lost in Paris


For over 70 years, she’s captured the hearts and imaginations of children world-wide. Now Madeline – the smallest of 12 girls living in “an old house in Paris covered with vines” and the star of Lugwig Bemelman’s beloved children’s book series – springs to life with her dog Genevieve in this amazing animated adventure!

When her long-lost Uncle Henri (Seinfeld’s Jason Alexander) unexpectedly visits Miss Clavel’s Parisian boarding school from Vienna, Madeline is whisked away on promises of the wonderful new life – and family – of which she ‘s always dreamed! But soon Madeline realizes that her new life isn’t as wonderful as she hoped, and she must use her own wits and courage to maintain the only real family she’s ever known.

Dove Review

As in all of the Madeline tales, this is another charming story about the cute young girl in Paris. With Parisian accents the girls tell of friendship and family. Sometimes family does not mean a blood relative but those around you. In this adventure Madeline finds out the true meaning of family and friends.

Madeline’s friends and Pepe, the boy next door, know that something is not right after she leaves with her new found uncle for Vienna. So the adventure starts as they travel through the streets of Paris in search of their good friend. Madelina on the other hand has to be brave and help herself along with the other girls who are being used to make lace.

We award the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages to “The Madeline Movie: Lost in Paris”.
