The arrival of Russian tanks in the city marks their separation and Madeleine returns to France. In the second, in the 90s, Madeleine’s daughter Véra falls in love in London with Henderson, who feels unable of loving her. Madleine and Vera living at the end of 20th century, both play their feminine roles in their comlicated relationships in which, without their stubbornes, they would have probably give up their desires, and they would have probably withdrew from them.
