Synopsis

"There is a sense of the absurdity of class divisions—the servant, the bourgeois and the aristocrat—at a moment in history when the categories lost their conviction," wrote the London Times critic. Dorante, who is poor, gets a job as a steward with his adored Araminte. On his behalf, Dubois, his former servant, wages psychological warfare. All good fun; the pain comes in with Marton, Araminte's paid companion, who is led to believe Dorante loves her and who then finds out her mistake. The Times critic concludes "...a marvelously confidential tone, as if in awe of the weirdness of the Marivaux world! The effect is delightful!"
