French Fridays, and One Lesson Lupin, Ch. 8 Teaches us about Black History


                 Fun with Languages Friday  (Spoilers left untranslated !): Lupin #8 (P2e3) !

French Fridays with Lupin, Omar Sy style!

   This episode should be called “Inter-generational Revenge… “


    Lesson:  Racism matters, and history matters: repair your damage…

Why would he allow Juliet to play with him like that when he knows she’s a player? 


Oui, il vise la fille.   …  Yup, he’s targeting the girl.
And I suppose there’s no better way to get a teenager to do something then to prohibit the teenager from doing it.



But he can’t actually be doing this for her reasons.
Et en visant la fille parce que le père a visé son fils il va la faire croire qu’il est tout prêt il est prêt à tout pour elle pour qu’elle soit prête à tout pour lui.
And he is not obsessed with her father, her father is an outright racist.
Oh, so he had to gain her confidence in order to get her to talk to her mother, who knows where the bodies are and they get her to tell the police where the bodies are.
Yup, all that for a coffee!
I wonder if she knows yet that her father has been stealing from her foundation.
I love how they keep going back to that same Pier on the Seine where he was being treated badly by the kids the loosest kids and now you see that racism being not exactly undone but partly in this kiss at that same place.  Very well done.

Chapter 7 aka Part 2, episode 2,  was last week, and then

        Part 2, ep. 4 , aka Ch. 9,  will post next week.

I look forward to your thoughts.
