Bedtime Stories for Adults

Sunday, October 30, 2011 @ 08:10 PM  posted by Mark

This video is from a nightly television series called Voyage au Bout de la Nuit (Journey to the End of the Night), in which beautiful women and handsome men read classics of French literature as bedtime stories for insomniacs. This episode features actress Louise Pasteau reading from a collection of love letters exchanged by playwright Beaumarchais (Barber of Seville, Marriage of Figaro) and the love of his life, Amélie Houret de La Morinaie, in the late 18th century.
