Storyboard Text

  • Paris, France, close to the 19th Century. 
  • Dinnertime in Monsieur and Madame Loisel's worn down house...
  • Aha! Scotch broth! What could be better?
  • Sigh..
  • One evening...
  • I'm back and I have something for you!! The Minister of Education and Madame Raponneau invites you to a party at the Ministry on the evening of Monday, January the 18th.
  • What to do want me to do with this?? What do you suppose I am to wear at such an affair???
  • Uhh... the dress you go to the theater with looks very nice to me...
  • Why? Just why? Why is it like this? Why did I, a beautiful, elegant, and charming lady called Mathilde Loisel, let myself be married off to a little clerk in the Ministry of Education? I want wealth, luxury, and men who are famous and sought after. I want to look exquisite and attractive. I want clothes and jewels. I want all the sights a rich person would have!
  • As the party drew near...
  • I still look poor! I need jewels!
  • Just go ask Madame Forestier to lend you some.
  • Good idea!
  • What's wrong?
  • The day of the party.
  • See, look how I endlessly suffer. What is this dinner!? I expect delicate meals served in marvelous dishes, gorgeous tapestries, and murmured gallantries!!!!
  • Wow. She's so beatiful. I want to be introduced to her! I want to waltz with her!
  • I don't want to look poor there. My husband should clearly should give the invitation to someone else. But surprisingly, he gave me 400 francs to buy a dress. I hope I look admiring with it.
  • After the party, at 4:00 A.M., Monsieur Loisel has come to pick up her wife from the party.
  • I don't want to wait though...
  • Wait a litte. You'll catch a cold in the open.
  • Madame Forestier allowed me to choose some jewellery from a large box. I wanted to borrow an exquisite diamond necklace, and Madame Forestier granted me permission to do so. I was so happy!
  • That day was a success. It was the happiest day of my life! I looked elegant, and I danced delightfully. The Minister even noticed me!
  • I don't want everyone else to know how poor I actually am. I have to hurry, but it's so cold! After a long time of searching, we finally found a carriage which brought us to our door in the Rue des Martyrs. We're finally home after a long, wonderful day...
