Synopsis: What to do when you are nicknamed Bluebeard and you have lost your your sixth wife? Marry a seventh one of course! This time around, Count de Salfère has chosen young Aline, the innkeeper's daughter.

The wedding takes place with all the pomp and circumstance expected by all but the wedding night is less impressive as "Bluebeard" falls asleep, failing to honor his young wife. And just guess what the blushing bride does the next morning? She of course goes to the secret room to know everything about the secret beyond the door. But what she sees once the door is opened with the mysterious golden key has nothing to do with the legend...

I got to go for a little while.

Please be quiet.




Here is how the situation looks like.

The man living in this

castle is called Blue Beard.

This evening, Barbe blue organizes

a fancy dress ball.

And all people of the area come.

The rumour says Blue Beard's trying

to find a new wife.

So everyone wants to be there.

Madam, for example She brought her

two daughters, Anne and Ariane,

At the ball of Bluebeard

in the hope of marrying them:

Either Anne, or Ariane.

Because, the good lady is clever!

She knows what Blue Beard represents.

So here she is with her two

daughters in front of the castle

I do not want to support you

for the rest of my life.

I don't want people to think

I educated you badly!

Take this off!

I hope I can trust you, Anne.

Last time, you turned out drunk again.

Go in now!

Good evening.

Oh dear!

Let the party begin!


I'm so glad to have you here.

Let me offer you this nectar

coming from my own vineyards.

It procures a soft euphoria

to those who drink it.

Man finds in wine a second youth.

The wine is similar to woman,

it brings consolation to man.

It is as sensual as the

feeling it gives us.

In this state of mind, love

takes the most peculiar ways,

such as burning desire.

And its taste is as sweet

as a young girl's cheek.

Oooh, isn't'this touching?

After this Blue beard

shows her his treasures.

She finally forgets the color of his beard.

And, in the end, Ariane becomes

the Blue Beard's seventh wife.

I must go..

An urgent business.

Take care of the castle as

a good housewife would do.

All this is yours.

Have fun during my absence.

Do invite your family and your friends.

Here are the keys of all apartments.

This little key opens my secret room

at the end of the gallery, underground.

Go wherever you want, but

you cannot enter this room.

Otherwise, youll have

nothing to hope from me.

A good riddance! He's gone now.

She won't be alone for long.

Here are all her friends:

Her sister Anne, her brothers,

Gaspard and Melchior

and girlfriends, Sara and Clara.

And they go in every direction.

Let's take a glass of wine

or the whole bottle.

While Ariane guides her friends

throughout the castle,

she says:
" come and see

here, follow me there, etc."

During this time, Gaspard

walks around on his own. discover the place.

The other brother is more

interested by the little Clara.

What do you want to see now? The bedrooms?

Wow, this dress is wonderful.

Sara, we have to go home, Gaspard

and Melchior takes us back.

Already, the fun has only just begun.

See you soon, Ariane.

Well, darling, see you...


wake up,

Look how dirty your dress is.

What will he say if he comes back?

She then rushes to her room to change.

Jesus, look at that!

There is even some in her hair.

God, There's nothing to do.

It's too tough to remove!

But... your hair!

Are the brothers back?

Here they are!

You went in my collection room.

You must die now.

Let me ask you one last favour.


I'd like to put my wedding

dress on and die in dignity.

All right

you have 7 minutes...

not more.

Anne... Anne...

Wake up, quickly, he's gonna kill me.

Where are my glasses?

Go upstairs and see whether

the brothers are back.

Anne, don't you see anything?

I can only see the snow...

And it's so cold here.

In fact, I don't see much.

Will you come down?


Nothing yet.

What are they doing?


It's the engine again!

Of course!

Come down now.


Here they are! Here, hurry up!

Come closer...

That's all, folks.

" All is well

that finishes well "...

Oh no, it's absurd! Let's say:'He

who laughs last is bitten'.

I don't know, stuff like that.

Charles Perrault said: " Curiosity

often costs many regrets".

But Charles doesn't understand anything

if she hadn't been curious,

she wouldn't have been wary.

And he tells those things to children!

This is nonsense!
