    The software we use sometimes flags "false positives" -- that is, blocks that should not have occurred. The words of this Talleyrand in petticoats were taken as final decrees. These persons found no difficulty in believing that the Duchess was ill, seeing that she grew thinner and paler and more dejected every day. And yet, it is not so very long since he came here, brought by desire, and the tones of his voice filled this boudoir.

    He asks Antoinette — for that is her real name — to come away with him. But when you take a lover, must you really make your bed in the public thoroughfare? I am now beyond suffering. Others will tell you that you have brought them to life.

    It takes several years for him to recover. He finds an oasis and rests there to ponder his fate. And what, moreover, were these men compared with him whom she loved with all her heart; with the man grown great by all that she had lost in stature? The curtain comes down and the two nuns vanish into the convent.

The sight of such a city, with its close huddled roofs, arranged for the most part amphitheatre wise above a picturesque harbour, and crowned by a glorious cathedral front with triple arched Gothic doorways, belfry towers, and filigree spires, is a spectacle surely in every way the sublimest on earth Now there is nothing left to her but to love Montriveau.

She did not succeed in getting a glimpse of Armand. You let the unconscious of the actors do the work. As for older men, if during the paroxysms of early passion in youth they had experience of such phenomena of nervous power; at a later day it is so completely forgotten that they deny the very existence of the luxuriant ecstasy—the only name that can be given to these wonderful intuitions.

That excitement is partly achieved through great acting and much better casting Isabelle Huppert and Pascal Greggory, who have a kind of high-octane negative chemistrybut also through a vivid conveyed sense of a surrounding society that is shocked, even as it looks the other way.

He mocks his boyish folly, and advises him, if he must persist with a woman not worth his passion, to be firm and refuse to take no for an answer. A relapse of intense agitation set in when she was dressed; she passed through nervous paroxysms brought on by the dreadful power which sets the whole mind in ferment.

But the story is all about withholding--and we need to know its inner repercussions. A mysterious old gentleman is so feeble and decrepit as to be freaking out some of the guests, who almost think he must be a ghost or Death or something.

I like great natures, dear friend, ridiculous though you may think it. The bulk of this story again takes place at a social gathering of big shots, where a story within the story is told.
