“The legacy” by Marivaux is one of the author’s last works and reveals his increasing disenchantment. Love is closely linked to interest. Mixing questions of money and the heart is inevitably problematic. A world is coming to an end. The era of the bourgeoisie is beginning. Bernard Dumont’s film is a complete reenactment of the Comédie Française production in which he brings together realism and lucidity.
