The only one working was Jeanne.

The town.

Jeanne's thread sold for a good price.

No one even wanted to haggle.

Jeanne's husband Jean was

the only one in the village

able to pay the lord's high taxes.

Rumors started spreading that

Jeanne was possessed by the devil.

Delighted that Jean

had payed all his taxes,

the lord appointed

Jean town tax collector.

Before only a poor peasant,

now Jean was an official in a red hat.

Jeanne was happy for

her husband's success.

But Jeanne also noticed

that the villagers had changed.

Now they bowed deeply,

and avoided crossing paths

with Jean and Jeanne.

The darkness is burning

The darkness invites and seduces me

Burning darkness

Deep into it...

Blazing hot...

The darkness is burning...

Get away!

What do you want from me?

This is only the beginning.

Indeed, this was only the beginning

of Jeanne's suffering.

War broke out.

War is expensive.

But winning meant more land.

I'm leaving for the front tomorrow,

and this is all you collected?


but tomorrow I promise...

Fool! It takes more than

a few drops to turn a mill!

If you don't get all the money in

three days, I'll have you hanged!

But your highness... no one

has any more money left!

Teach this man to listen to orders.

Make his body remember.

Chop off his left hand.

You called me?

I did...

I'll help you.

I know you want power.

You're cruel.

You're mine now.

Your body, your soul.


My soul belongs to Jean

and to God.

You beautiful fool.

Still you resist me,

even when you're beneath the rod!

Your husband is on

the road to perdition.

What will you do now?

You're mine already,

but I want you to accept me

of your own free will.

I also want your heart and soul.

Otherwise, he will...

This flesh, this rotting flesh,
