Gallant Ladies

Genre: Comedy

married M. de Mareuil, who had

some vineyards in Touraine.

Like many a cuckold, he thought

his new wife a virgin.

It's pigeon's blood.

The next morning...

she excitedly showed him

the proof of his virility.

I don't remember a thing.

You deflowered me so well!

Within 3 months,

the aphrodisiacs killed him.

I offered his widow my sympathy.

Say and do what you like.

You won't stop me dying!

When nothing can take away sorrow...

there's one last solution.

Stop it!

Believe me, it's the only way.

Thank you.

You're a friend.

A war wound?

No, a jealous husband.

She married the Comte d'Estrivos...

who made a fortune in the spice trade.

Brantme, a wedding

without you isn't a wedding.

To honour Victoire without her

husband suspecting...

I'll pretend to love another.

Paris, the paradise of women...

the hell of mules...

and the purgatory of supplicants...

Was the night good?

It was housebound, Sire.

Some ladies lack inspiration.


No more soldiering?

I can't live away from court, Sire.

Away from court or the ladies?

I did something you'll never

I'm married.

Let's hear of your merrymaking.

I'm too poor to think of ladies now.

Have you heard, Bussy?

No, Sire.

The Comte d'Estrivos died last night.


Yesterday, after supper.

He ate 2 partridges and a pheasant.

The pheasant killed him.

Victoire is a better catch now.


if only I'd known her before I wed!

Tell the queen to go to the chapel.

Here she is, Sire.

I suppose you'll go

to console the countess?

She deserves it.

Tell the countess

that Pierre de Brantme...

wishes to offer his condolences.

My dear friend...

I can't get used to it.

Crying is all that's left to me.

I cry a lot, it does me good.

What a tragedy!

He loved his food!
