European Cinema Thriller Possibly Indie - Dead Child/Mistaken Identity/Incectuous Overtones

This aired on Showcase in Canada in the 90's... But could easily have been a 70's or 80's movie.

European cinema, surrounding a boy who went "missing" as a child... In his teenage years, appears to "resurface" but has no recollection of being that boy. His 'sister' takes to him, and incestuous advances occur... Eventually it comes out that a neighbour killed the boy, and buried him in his cellar. The sister loses her composure, and smashes an egg sculpture (pyramid) she was working on.

This is driving my NUTS! Please help!

This is from the Nineties:

"Olivier, Olivier" (1992)

From IMDb:

A 9-year-old boy disappears without a trace. Six years later, he appears in Paris, but there are doubts about his real identity.

From IMDb forum:

I saw this film a while ago, and I never understood why the sister slept with the kid they all thought was her brother.

From IMDb forum 2:

I don't think he was literally her brother. I think that when she did that sort of spell thing with the eggs she caused some sort of transmigration of souls that caused the runaway to have aspects of Olivier's personality. So she perhaps knew on some level that he wasn't her brother.

THANK YOU SO MUCH! This has been driving me nuts for several years... Periodically I try my Google-Fu at it, but apparently my queries fell short.

Seriously, thank you!
You're welcome! I've seen it just once many years ago and always remembered it.

May I ask you a favor? Would you select it as Best Answer? That signals others who might be reading questions to identify.
