YVETTE – PERIOD DRAMA ROMANCE SCRIPT
Yvette is eighteen, and she is a mystery. Nobody can make out whether she is a charming youngster or a wretched jade. She belongs through her mother, a high-class courtesan, as well as through her manners and her customs, to the vortex of the most rapid life of 19th-century Paris. Yet, she lives in that atmosphere of infamy with a calm and triumphing ease as if she suspects absolutely nothing of her mother’s profession, which is either wonderfully profligate or entirely artless. She allures and excites men and at the same time acts like an impeccable virgin. If she is not the most complete monster of astuteness and perversity, she certainly is the most marvelous phenomenon of innocence that can be imagined. Only, this young lady belongs neither to society, nor to the tradesmen’s class, nor to the common people, and she can never enter any of these ranks by marriage. She has only one possible career, a life of pleasure, and she cannot escape her fate.
