Some of the English subtitles did not sound right ... but that's the problem in translations, be it French or Chinese films:
I’d like to tell you about Victoria. Her story could have been different… ended in another way… and made my friend happier. I often think I could have changed things. But can I be sure of that?
“Go, Victoria, do what you have to do. Make the most of your youth. Because, after, you’ll meet a man and it’ll be over.”
At the same time, everything seemed a little fake, … I remember it well. The apartment was less impressive, the light less warm… The carpets were worn. It seemed odd wealthy people hadn’t changed them.
I spend my life waiting for you.
Sometimes she thought of the men she’d known. There had been a few one-night stands. Then Thomas, who was different but never really counted for her. She often thought of Edouard, who had left his mark on her, but that was something else, strong emotions from her childhood. Now there was Sam and she loved him deeply. With him, life seemed more real, more concrete. Yes, even if she was always waiting for him, even if everyday life was hard, Sam was well and truly the man of her life. For better and for worse, as they say.
So why didn’t you send us to a better school?
-That’s what I wanted but… Don’t start. Your school did you a lot of good.
Pupils there actually fought with knives last week.
-It didn’t happen back then.
But you could have wanted better teaching.
-You’d have missed something and you met people you’d never have frequented.
You were being politically correct.
-Know what you’d be otherwise? A little self-centered, ridiculous Parisian intellectual. That’s all.
I’ve written what I know about this story. Victoria said she doesn’t want to read it. She couldn’t return to those years that seemed like a confused dream. What would become of her now? Could I help her more than in the past? I know she won’t let herself go. She’ll keep trying in her way to find a place somewhere. Yes, that’s how she is, Victoria, my friend.
