Description
Information
Jean Blomart, privileged "bourgeois" turned fighter against the Nazi Occupation, is waiting through the endless night for his lover Helene to die. Flashbacks interweave the stories of their lives and their tortuous relationship until, with dawn approaching, Jean faces a monumental decision.

'The Blood Of Others' written during the Occupation and published in 1945, portrays the agony of defeat and resistance in wartime France, and the inner awakening of a man impelled by anger and obsessed with guilt. It remains Simone de Beauvoir's most gripping and human dramatisation of the existentialist's dilemma, examining the nature of love, fate and personal freedom, and asking the question: how much responsibility can one truly have for the lives of others?
