    Mademoiselle de Montpensier (1627-1693), cugina di Luigi XIV, era fiera di essere più francese di lui (Luigi aveva madre spagnola), più Borbone (i suoi genitori appartenevano entrambi a quella famiglia) e più parigina (era nata al Louvre, non a Saint-Germain come Luigi). Era una donna sportiva, casta, energica e impulsiva, a volte fino alla balordaggine.Dovette vergognarsi di suo padre, il debole e intrigante duca di Orléans, fratello di Luigi XIII, ma non si rassegnò: nei torbidi tempi della Fronda, si buttò a surrogarlo come poteva sui campi di battaglia, sino a far cannoneggiare le truppe reali dagli spalti della Bastiglia.

    Set during the Franco-Prussian war, de Maupassant's story tells of a group of German soldiers occupying and gradually vandalising a stately home in Normandy. Bored of the dull location and incessant rain, the group of young officers decide to send to the nearest town for a group of prostitutes, so that they can hold an orgiastic dinner party. Among the women is the spirited young Rachel, whose willingness to fraternize with the Prussians is put to the test, with catastrophic results.
