Storyboard Text

  • I'm upset that I have no jewels, not a single stone to wear. I will look cheap. I would almost rather not go to the party.
  • The day of the party drew near, and Madame Loisel seemed sad, restless, anxious. Her dress was ready, however.
  • No; there is nothing more humiliating than looking poor in the middle of a lot of rich women.
  • What's the matter? You've been acting strange these last three days.
  • You could wear flowers.
  • Go and see your friend Madame Forestier and ask her to lend you some jewels.
  • The next day she went to her friend's house and told her of her distress. Madame Forestier went to her mirrored wardrobe, took out a large box, brought it back, and opened it.
  • Why, yes, of course.
  • Choose, my dear.
  • Would you lend me this, just this?
  • The day of the party arrived. Madame Loisel was a success. She was prettier than all the other women, elegant, gracious, smiling, and full of joy.
  •  In front of the mirror, she took off the clothes around her shoulders, taking a final look at herself in all her glory. But suddenly she uttered a cry. She no longer had the necklace round her neck!
  • I have ... I have ... I no longer have Madame Forestier's necklace.
  • What! ... how! ... That's impossible!
  • What is the matter?
  • And so they went from jeweler to jeweler, looking for an necklace like the other one, consulting their memories, both sick with grief and anguish. The dreadful debt must be paid.
  • Oh, my poor Mathilde! Mine was an imitation! It was worth five hundred francs at most!
  • But - madame - I don't know. You must have made a mistake.
  • At the end of ten years they had paid off everything, everything, at usurer's rates and with the accumulations of compound interest. Madame Loisel looked old now. 
  • No, I am Mathilde Loisel. You remember that diamond necklace that you lent me to wear? I lost it and gave you a fake that was 36000 francs!
  • Good morning, Jeanne.
