With his wife in labor, father-to-be Thomas speeds to the hospital, and in the process, accidentally kills a young man on the road. That death sets into motion events that will change everyone's lives forever, including the young man's mother, Marie-France, who cannot recover from the trauma. Nine years later, Marie-France takes a job, as Thomas's assistant, without him knowing about her connection to his past.

A slow long look at revenge. The movie does move slowly. It is a slow, calculated movement as Marie-France works her way into the very heart of the family. Good subtitles.

A slow burn psychological thriller that strings viewers along when Marie-France resurfaced 9 years a tragic accident and worked herself inside Thomas's family. As good, though less original premise, as the memorable 1992 "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle." Excellent performance by Nathalie Baye as a vengeful psychopathic woman/mother who lost her only child.

Note: Nathalie Baye also appeared in another French film Moka (2016) about actions of a mother whose son was killed in a car accident.

English subtitles for the French lullaby near the 40 minutes mark:

The world softly slumbers
As night begins to fall
Swiftly close your eyes
Sleep, my sweetest child
The moon rests upon your bed
Basked in its silvery glow
When everything is at peace
Sleep, my sweetest child
Peacefully sleep alongside your mother
Dream a blissful dream
In the morning, in the light of day
Your heart will awaken with joy.
