It all starts when Marianne (Karin Viard) invites an old couple, the
Worms (Manuela Gourary, Pierre Julien), into her apartment, a couple that
claims to have lived here many years ago. After that, Marianne's kids (Camille
Vatel, Alexandre Bongibault) start acting weirdly ... and
then their nanny (Ludivine Sagnier) kills herself. Even Marianne's husband
Jacques (Charles Berling) isn't quite himself anymore, as he has violent
outbursts that often end with him hurting himself. Marianne meanwhile,
when she doesn't panic or have hallucinations, has sex on the kitchen
table with everyone from the handiman to the delivery boy - though she has
no idea why. On top of all that, she learns that the Worms who have come
for a visit at the beginning of the film were actually killled in the
apartment as children (and thus couldn't have come for a visit as an old
couple, right?). Eventually, she comes to the conclusion that her kids are
possessed by the Worms, and it all ends in a fire that leaves noone but the
children alive ...
This is a film with a nice set-up - that
loses itself in its story soon afterwards, and the closer the plot gets
to the finale, the less you care about the on-screen goings-on as
the movie has along the way become little more than a incoherent mess of isolated
situations that are not really tied up in the end. Pity, because at the
beginning I really liked this movie ...
