Help understanding a 34-second French video clip

Postby arthaey » Fri Nov 27, 2015 11:44 pm

If you've been following along with my log, you'll know that I've become a "little" ;) obsessed with the French musical "La légende du roi Arthur". I've found this 34-second clip that's just dialog. It's too short, and too quiet, for me to be 100% sure of the clip's relative order in the musical.

Would someone who understands spoken French mind translating what they're saying? Or giving me a simple summary? I'd really appreciate it! This is the last unfiled clip I have to deal with.



(If anyone is interested in taking on the much bigger task of transcribing in French and/or translating into English the dialog of all the video that I've found of the musical, please let me know!! But I'm expecting to have to do that work myself, when my level of French is high enough to handle it. ;)

Merci beaucoup!

Now I know where this scene goes, relative to the others. :D

The woman is Camille Lou, who is from Bersillies, near Maubeuge, Nord, France. The man is Florent Mothe, from Argenteuil & Montigny-lès-Cormeilles, in Val-d'Oise, France. (Apologies if I've messed up how one is supposed to refer to the various regions of France.)

Do they both happen to have northern French accents?
