few Parisian women are like you.

- You barely know the man...

- Skin deep...

as Valmont puts it.

Court's jubilant and full of praise for her:

"A perfect, innocent, frank, chaste girl!"

What a command of language!

She's not with you tonight?

She went to a surprise party.

A pure girl at a party?

We know the family.

It's their daughter's 18th birthday.

Your letter was wonderful!

What are you doing here

in the middle of the night?

- Really wonderful!

- Lf your parents saw you here!

Isn't it true what you wrote?

Of course it is.

But you're still so naive.

You don't know what evil is.

You wrote so beautifully!

I figured that you'd always loved me.

At least since our vacation in Baule.

You should have told me before.

I treated you as a child.

The news of your wedding shocked me.

I'll never marry Court.

Why did you get engaged, then?

I want to move out of my house.

My parents are so old-fashioned.

Do you really love me?

Yes, I do.

Won't you kiss me?

- What's the matter?

- You've made progress since Baule.

Nice, but too little closet space.

There's enough.

Not for my outfits!

- Your outfits?

- Yes, my clothing.

- Your clothing here?

- We'll live together.

You'd move in here?

We're in love, aren't we?

I've loved you for years, Cecile.

I've always thought you'd be my wife.

But first, I have to graduate,

and I must do my military service.

- How long is that?

- More than four years.

- Another four years?

- Lf you really love me...

You do, don't you?

But four years is too much!

Your parents would never let you

shack up with a man.

Let's get married then.

I couldn't support you now.

It's complicated, isn't it?

What are you doing?

Don't you understand?

If I became your lover...

my parents would give us the money

to avoid a scandal.
