[POUNDING ON DOOR]

[DOOR SLAMS SHUT]

YOU MUST UNDERSTAND, MONSIEUR,

I HAVE STRICT ORDERS NOT TO LE

ANYONE SEE THESE PRISONERS. BUT,

AN ORDER FROM THE MINISTER, M. FOUQUET.

[SCREAMS FROM TORTURE]

THE RACK, MADEMOISELLE, STILL

THE BEST WAY TO LOOSEN THE

VILLAINS TONGUE.

[FAINT CRY]

TELL ME, MONSIEUR, WHY DOES A

BEAUTIFUL YOUNG LADY OF HIS MAJESTY'S

COURT WISH TO SEE A WRETCH

LIKE THIS DE LA VALLIERE.

SHE'S THE MAN'S DAUGHTER.

A FACT THAT MONSIEUR FOUQUE WOULD NOT WANT PUBLISHED.

AS GOVERNOR OF THE BASTILLE

ONE LEARNS TO BE DISCREET.

PLEASE.

MONSIEUR. MONSIEUR, I DEMAND

TO KNOW WHY I'M HERE.

WHAT HAVE I DONE?

WHO IS MY ACCUSER?

WHEN AM I TO BE TRIED?

[DOOR SLAMS SHUT]

TO HEAR THEM COMPLAIN,

THEY ARE ALL INNOCENT.

[UNLOCKS, OPENS DOOR]

ALONE, AS WAS PROMISED.

FIVE MINUTES, NO MORE.

[DOOR CLOSES, LOCKS]

FATHER.

WHO'S THERE?

WHAT DO YOU WANT OF ME?

IT'S LOUISE.

[WHIMPERING]

LOUISE?

GO AWAY.

OH, OH, I'M DREAMING.

NO. PAPA.

YOU ARE NOT DREAMING.

MY CHILD.

HA, HA, HEH, IT IS MY CHILD.

[SOBBING]

FORGIVE ME, WHY, IS I ON THAT ACCOUNT?

LET ME SEE.

HOW BEAUTIFUL YOU ARE.

SO, SO ELEGANT.

LIFE HAS CAUGHT ME SEUKING.

YOU KNEW WHEN THEY

TOOK YOU?

[COUGHING, NODDING]

PLEASE, FORGIVE ME.

WHY, WHY DO YOU

BLAME YOURSELF?

IF I HAD NOT REJECTED

THE ATTENTIONS OF M. FOUQUET.

FOUQUET?

WATCH OUT.

WE MAY BE HEARD.

IT WOULD BE BETTER IF I WERE

TO BE MISTRESS AND YOU WERE FREE.

NEVER.

I'D RATHER ROT HERE.

IF I GAVE LOVE TO HIM.

NEVER, NEVER.

I MUST, IF I HAVE TO, FATHER.

NO. NO.

[CHOKING COUGH]

MADEMOISELLE.

MY FATHER AND I...

- [COUGHING]

THANK YOU:

FOR YOUR KINDNESS.

WHY DO YOU STARE AT ME SO?

IT, IT'S JUST THA YOU RESEMBLE.

WHO?

AN ACQUAINTANCE.

DO NOT BE AFRAID.

HOW COULD I HARM

ANYONE SO BEAUTIFUL?

BUT YOU MUST TELL ME.

I MUST KNOW.

[DOOR OPENS]

IT IS TIME.

MONSIEUR.

COME HERE.

UGH!

WHAT IS IT YOU SEE!

LET HIM ALONE.

MONSIEUR, MONSIEUR, MONSIEUR,

[LAUGHTER]

NE.., N'EST PAS QUI, QUI

VOUS APPELEZ GUENARAIS?

QUIET.

[SPEAKING FRENCH]

[SPEAKING FRENCH]

SEE HOW THE HAWK

AND THE FALCON:

CONSPIRE TOGETHER?

I WONDER WHAT EVIL

THEY'RE HATCHING.

FOUQUET.

-THE MASTER JUGGLER

AT WORK.

- THE NATIONAL TREASURY

PLUNDERED.

THE VERY WEALTH OF FRANCE

SMOOTHLY CHANNELED INTO

PERSONAL GLORY IN HIS

CHATEAU AT LOWE.

MAYBE WE SHALL SEE HIM

PAY IT BACK ONE DAY.

BUT LOOK AT THE REAL

SCOURGE OF FRANCE.

THIS WATER LILY WHO

CALLS HIMSELF A KING.

PATIENCE, D'ARTAGNAN, THE REAL

LOUIS STILL WEARS THE CROWN

AND BEARS THE SCEPTER.

ANY ACTION AGAINST HIM

MUST BE A LAST RECOURSE.

IT CANNOT BE:

SOON ENOUGH FOR ME.

FOUQUET HAS EARS EVERYWHERE.

HE MUST NOT GET WIND OF OUR

PLAN UNTIL WE ARE READY TO ACT.

I WILL COUNT THE MINUTES

TILL THE DAY.

SHHHHH.

I TELL YOU...HE LIVES.

WHERE?

IN THE BASTILLE.

GOD KNOWS WHAT STROKE OF FATE

PUT HIM THERE FOR ME TO FIND.

FAITH, UH, THIS IS THE WORK OF THOSE

JEALOUS OF MY POWER OVER THE KING.

COLBERT.

YES, I LONG SUSPECTED THAT.

THE VENERATED MINISTER OF

THE INTERIOR TO HAVE A PLO

TO DO ME DAMAGE.

BUT, A MOVE SO BOLD AS THIS,

IS NOT ONLY AGAINST ME, IT'S UH...

COULD BE TREASON!

DELICIOUS. I'LL HANG

THE OLD FOX YET.

ARE YOU CERTAINLY SURE

IT'S THE BOY?

COULD BE A PROTG OF

CARDINAL MAZARIN,

NOT JUST SOME LOOK-A-LIKE?

THE RESEMBLANCE IS TOO PERFECT.

IT HAS TO BE.

WE MUST BE CERTAIN.

MUST.

[JAIL DOOR OPENS]

WHO ARE YOU?

WHAT DO YOU WANT?

WHO BROUGHT THIS

PRISONER HERE?

I DON'T KNOW

WHO ARRESTED HIM.

THE ORDER WAS SIGNED BY SOME
