Les Enfants Terribles (film)

Les Enfants Terribles is a 1950 French film directed by Jean-Pierre Melville and based on Jean Cocteau's novel, Les Enfants Terribles. The first feature film of Melville, Le Silence de la Mer, attracted the attention of Jean Cocteau, who commissioned him to direct the film version of Les Enfants Terribles. Élisabeth looks after her bedridden mother and is protective of her teenage brother Paul, injured in a snowball fight at school and has to rest in bed most of the time. The siblings are inseparable, sleeping in the same room, playing secret games, leaving the house. Paul’s friend, Gérard drops by to stay with them; when the mother dies, Élisabeth becomes a model for a couturier, where she meets Agathe and brings her home to live with them. The shy girl bears a strong resemblance to Dargelos, a schoolboy whom Paul had a crush on and the same boy who injured him. Paul and Agathe are attracted to each other but neither can declare it, fearing Élisabeth's reaction. Élisabeth and Paul's relationship is a game, in which during arguments the winner is the one with the last word.

Élisabeth has met a rich businessman who she marries, but he dies days after in a road accident, leaving her his mansion and fortune. She brings Agathe and Gérard to live with her. Paul decides he must tell Agathe he loves her and posts a letter, which Élisabeth destroys when it arrives. Élisabeth pushes Gérard and Agathe into marrying each other, so they move out and she has Paul to herself. Gérard visits them with a present from Dargelos of an exotic poison, a subject that had fascinated the two at school. Having lost Agathe and now a virtual prisoner of Élisabeth, Paul in despair takes the poison; when Agathe visits him on his deathbed, they discover. Élisabeth realises. Subsequently, to ruin their reconciliation and to avoid being on her own, Élisabeth shoots herself and dies seconds before Paul. A traumatised Agathe is left with two bodies.
