Fun with Languages Fridays: Lupin, 1:3


                 Fun with Languages Friday:  mostly English, and a little stream-of-consciousness…


French Fridays with Lupin, Omar Sy style!

   This third episode is all about how Assàne kidnaps Commissair DuMont, brilliantly.  And Dumont eventually asks his forgiveness.  And the school, paid for by the “generous donatrice” where this kid did not lack courage!  Launching at three kids all by himself!  🙂   So there we see his history of bravery, already shown back in the 2nd episode!   I’ve not yet read LeBlanc’s story  where Lupin kidnaps a person and never leaves the building, but the policeman afficcionado of the stories references it as he figures it out, leading his colleagues to Dumont.
Poor Guidira:  “Patron… Pas Lupin encore!”   He’s right, but no one believes him!  His middle name should be Cassandra!! 
And Dumont should have stuck to his guns, 25 years ago!!
Before he went back to smoking…
    And now, Dumont’s wife knows he’s a liar, and so do the police.  And best of all, Assàne knows that Pellegrini is implicated…

     I also have a short historical fiction series called  Ann & Anna, about two women and a small girl escaping slavery through 1855 Maryland.  I  hope that this series will move you to learn more ways to help use our history to build new tools.

  Chapter 2 was last Friday, and Chapter 4  will post this coming Friday. 

(See all of my Lupin reviews on this list.)   (Part 1: ep1, part 1: ep2, part 1:ep3, and part 1:ep4 from previous Fun French Fridays…)

I look forward to your thoughts.

    1. Isn’t it, though?! What are your favorite memories from these first three episodes, ok, actually, what are your favs from this episode (I’d love to hear your thoughts on the other two episodes on those posts, too, please!! Finally, someone likes Lupin!!)?!

      1. I have never heard this expression. I also do not claim to be the most “in the know” with respect to expressions. But do tell!

        1. Ah, good to know: it used to be expected that everyone would know Greek mythology (as an educated person was expected to at least be able to read some Greek and Latin), and thus catch these references right away. Nowadays, unfortunately, much of that expectation has withered away, even for older generations.

          At the start, I believe, of events leading up to the kidnapping of Helen and the war with Troy, Apollo ‘courts’ a sister (if I recall correctly) of Helen’s, gifting her with the ability to see the future. She then made the unwise choice of rejecting the god of music and other things whimsical, and he then, since divine gifts could not be taken back, cursed Cassandra with still being able to see what would happen, but never being believed.

          (And of course, she tells Agamemnon, or some other king, that this invasion of Troy will end badly for pretty much everybody, but no one listens to her…)
