Arletty, Une Passion Coupable :- Watch Arletty, Une Passion Coupable on Youtube on Fire, “Les Enfants Du Paradis” ,many consider the best movie of all the French cinema showed intimate connections between theater and real life ;the MTV film,in its own way ,does the same :whilst she’s working on her greatest role,she ‘s living a doomed passion (the scene with Baptiste’s son is revealing). The movie does not really take sides:it will not tell you whether the actress was right to make love with a German officer ;”I ‘m on the side of love”.As Frederic Mitterrand pointed out in a documentary ,Arletty lived through two wars ;the first one took her first love “Ciel” from her in the first days of the conflict;she swore then she would never have a child who would become a soldier;her abortion makes sense even though it would have been a bad time for the child of a French icon and an enemy. The lesbian affair with Antoinette is less known -although Arletty’s bisexuality was no secret ,she had an affair with writer Colette This strange menage à trois illustrates Prévert’ s “Je Suis Comme Je Suis”(=I am what I am),Arletty’s motto ,a popular actress who was in love with a (female) resistant fighter and a handsome German officer. The price to pay was hard and her career was partly broken;when she appeared in the part of Blanche Dubois in Williams’ “a streetcar named desire” in 1949-which is shown in the movie-,she was almost booed off the stage.
