Raymond is dating elsa, his current mistress, they then all go on holiday to a rented villa on the cote d'azur (French Riviera). he's Mediterranean looking and has a "protector" kind of look about him so she fancies him a bit. everyones happy and they go out gambling and things in the local town drinking and dancing.Then Anne shows up and it turns out that Raymond invited her and that he wants to replace elsa with anne because hes bored of elsa.L'étranger was published in 1942 in a very short print run; it was not subject to censorship as it was not deemed to be a dangerous work which might prejudice the French population against the German occupier.
Just as a matter of curiosity: what is the film that you're not allowed to study because you're under 18?
Thanks so much for your reply, I'm English but just about every name I could think of was taken.
The films available online too just google it and there's also a bonjour tristesse pdf so give that a google as well.
I'm happy to help if you have any questions I can ask my teacher for you she's French and really nice.
Anne tries to control cecile and make her work harder - which she hates. She finds elsa living with a Spanish guywho she met at a casino and she convinces elsa that anne is a horrible woman (this isn't true- anne just wants whats best for cecile but cecile doesn't want to be controlled) then elsa pretends to be dating Cyril and cecile tells her dad that elsa is dating a younger guy Cyril.
She doesn't want to be controlled and she starts to notice that her dad is listening to anne as well. He proposes to her and they're rolling around on the floor when anne discovers then and forbids cecile from seeing her boyfriend anymore. she knows her dad will hate this because Cyril is a younger man and has now had his daughter and his ex mistress so he wants to prove he can get elsa back.
Anne is beautiful and chic and elegant whereas Elsa is clumsy and bashful and more down to earth.
Cecile admires anne and her intelligence but once elsa leaves things start to go wrong.
Their relationship is upended when Anne, a mature and cultured friend of Raymond’s late wife, arrives at the villa.
Raymond quickly falls for her, and Cécile worries that their way of life will be disrupted.
