What is the name of this French movie?

Years ago I watched a movie in French class but can’t remember the name of it.

Here’s the bits of details I remember:

Two guys conspire to get a man’s property ( I think it was a garden or a vineyard).

The man with the property has a young daughter.

They end up killing the man for his property.

There is a sequel to the movie where the young daughter returns as an adult for revenge.

The two guys are now living the good life.

One of the guys falls desperately in love with the young girl.

The same guy becomes obsessed and even at one point sows her handkerchief to his chest and I think commits suicide.

I also remember my teacher saying that the actor of that man in real life is/was married to the girl and they have somewhat of an age gap.
