Summary

Chapter 5. Molina, still sick, is shunned by Valentin, who says he needs to study. The sullen Molina, feeling rejected, silently tells himself about another film. A young soldier arrives with his fiancée at a secluded house in the woods owned by an old maid and her servant, a young but unattractive woman. The fiancée hates the place, and they leave; years later, the soldier, his handsome face horribly disfigured from an accident during the war, returns alone. He and the servant are transformed through the power of their love in each other’s eyes; they are beautiful to each other, but the spell is broken when the soldier’s parents come to visit. Eventually, they become beautiful to each other again, and the final scene shows the couple only from the back, so the audience cannot know whether or not they are truly transformed.
