Fun with Languages Friday: (Part 1, episode 3 was last Friday)
***Spoilers (sort of… Just leaving them untranslated !!)
French Fridays with Lupin, Omar Sy style!
This fourth episode is inter-generational, all the way back to Emile Zola!! Yes, kids, sometimes the old folks know things that you guys can’t just Google, and they know how to “get what you need!” But the dog’s name! So cool!! J’accuse!!
“Pas les moyens de me defendre…” but she did teach J’accuse to bark when the name of that evil guy is spoken. So the old Fabienne does still exist, somewhere!
“La premiere fois qu’on m’avais adressé la parole depuis des jours.”
Horrible, but true: older women with no money or patron are ignored and despised. But she had the info to bring the empire down 20 years ago, if it hadn’t been for his army of lying lawyers.
J’accuse!! Fantastic dog!! Brilliant owner!!!
“Une bonne journalist ne revel jamais ces sources!”
“Le cout de trouillard ?”
Good thing he had an old VCR!
And The Old Cout is using his daughter’s foundation for business uses!! Of course…
Wow, c’est vrai! “Es que vous avait le sang de Kuala Lumpur dans les mains ?” C’estait le bonne questionne au bon moment !!
Blood on your hands -the right question before all! But losing a bad guy following you, maybe that takes a bit of recent practice?
Meanwhile, Dumont is denying all of the connections and throwing the team off of their leads, after taking ‘Cassandra’ off of the case entirely, of course!
After the attacks on Charlie Hebdo, the gold pen set that Assàne gives her is so beautiful. And a reminder of the risks that journalists all around the world take every day, even in countries like France, even in Paris.
As this one did, nobly, in the line of duty. And both J’accuse and Assàne lose a loved one.
Part 1, episode 5 (last in Part 1) posted Friday.
(Part 1: ep1, Part 1: ep2, and Part 1:ep3, from previous Fun French Fridays…)
I look forward to your thoughts.
