  • Description:
    Lefrancois, a father of six, is a soldier. His seventh child is on the way and will be named Victory. Lefrancois cannot remember why he tied a knot in his handkerchief. Although he has received the War Cross for capturing German soldiers, all he can think about is the gap in his memory. The next day, he is hit by a shell and transported to a hospital, where he remains obsessed with his forgetfulness. A friend pays him a visit and accuses him of looking emprunté (ill-at-ease). As soon as he hears the word emprunté, his memory comes back to him: he must tell his wife to subscribe to the emprunt national (national loan). Back on his feet, he asks viewers, Have you subscribed?

    Père de six enfants et dans l'attente d'un septième qui se prénommera Victoire, le soldat Lefrancois ne parvient pas à se souvenir pour quel motif il a noué son mouchoir. Il obtient la croix de guerre pour avoir fait prisonnier des soldats allemands mais son défaut de mémoire accapare son esprit. Le lendemain, touché par un obus, il est conduit à l'hôpital où il reste obsédé par son oubli. Un camarade vient lui rendre visite et lui reproche son air emprunté . Emprunté. Sitôt le mot prononcé, Lefrançois recouvre sa mémoire : il doit dire à sa femme de souscrire à l'emprunt national. Remis sur pieds, il interpelle les spectateurs et leur demande Avez-vous souscrit ? .
