My conclusion: She escapes, she grumbles, she is sarcastic, she does exactly what one should not do as a woman in this century now. Insulting Pharaoh. I love her. Also that the movie plays in my dream city of Paris. That makes him even pleasant. The story of how her twin sisters came to the point of waking I find sad. However, I think everyone touches the head when you finally see the Adele going to the Titanic. I always say she’s one of the survivors. It only takes a little longer to return to France.
