Title: n°14 My Battle With Destiny
[He's all dressed up and ready for his battle with destiny!]
Jeanne: Charles, your father is feeling a bit under the weather
so we're counting on you to do a good job representing him.
Charles: I understand, Mother.
Well, I've got to get going.
Anne: Please wait a minute, Charles.
Anne: You're going to city hall looking like that?
Don't you think that's a bit ostentatious?
Stop right now, Charles!!!
...Did something happen?
You seem completely different from the person you were two months ago.
You're not vomiting in the dissections anymore, and you're taking a proactive role in them.
Have you perhaps finally started to grow into your position as successor to the Sanson Family...?
Anne: Charles is such a good boy......
Guy: Hey, that tragic, beautiful boy is the one wrapped in that handkerchief, eh...?
It's smaller than I expected.
It's still only been there two months, and it's already in that condition.
Grandpa told me a story that 50 years ago, a pirate named Captain Kidd's corpse was on display for three years...
He said at the end, it turned black as ash.
Charles: After death, the flesh swells and then bursts like a balsam fruit with just a little bit of pressure.
And a honey-like bodily substance gushes out like a dam breaking.
Insects from all over are attracted to it, which eat the flesh and cause it to melt...
until all that is left are white bones-----...
Charles: People change-----
I am no longer
ashamed of the fact that I am a Sanson.
Jeanne: Dear, would you like a cup of liquor as a pick-me-up?
Baptist: No, I'm all right.
Anne: Salvatore... Please give Baptist a rich complexion like that of a baby's skin.
Use all of your skill to paint him as to be filled with a dignity that it appropriate of the head of the Sanson Family.
Salvatore: As you command, Madame.
Someone: Old soldiers should die-----
Someone: If you want to forever cling to tradition and glory of the past,
then just shut it away in a painting smeared with candle soot.
Charles: When this world, absorbed in old conventions, changes
the one to open up a new age will be me------!!!!
[There's the cute girl.]
Charles: I will never love a woman in my life-----
I have abandoned the happiness that normal people seek.
Guy: Monsieur Sanson, we've been awaiting you.
Charles: I will become an impeccable Monsieur De Paris,
I am here as my father's representative to accept tomorrow's decree of execution.
With my generation, I will end this accursed family line.
Charles: And one day, I will create a world without executions------
That is my vow to you...!!!
What are you staring at?
Who cares how handsome he is, he's an executioner! You'd better stay away from him.
Jeanne: That don't matter.
You saw what was written in the books we read at the convent.
Jeanne: Pretty soon, social status and classes will be gone. A world of freedom and equality is coming.
You could even marry a king!!!
Sign: Marie-Jeanne Bécu
Later, the royal mistress to Louie the 15th, Madame du Barry
Girl: Oh, don't be silly, Jeanne!!
There's no way something like that could happen!
C'mon, let's go!
Narration: In the year 1793
she would be captured by the revolutionaries and, by Sanson's hand, executed by guillotine.
Narration: And two years later, at the Vienna Schönbrunn Palace
one more person whose life would be taken by Sanson's blade of destiny, the tragic queen, would be born-------------------------
