Staff recommendation: Right from the start we know that the children have been murdered by
their nanny, Louise.

Paul and Myriam are a successful Parisian couple; he in the music
industry, she as a lawyer. When the couple’s two children come along in
quick succession, Myriam loses her sense of self and returns to work.

This is when an ageless doll-like widow with fastidious manners enters
their life and becomes indispensable. However, soon mistrust and
jealousies seep into this fragile family and results in tragedy.
