The seven ramparts of the citadel

1954, the drama is tied, the horizon of light fills with twilight wrinkles, Lucien the feudal, almighty master of the "secular house" is building dikes, multiplying efforts, ruining himself, smashing his children's happiness in a pathetic and vain attempt to reverse the course of destiny. Standing to reason till the end, he won't hesitate going for an onslaught of the "enemy", even if, at the end of the road, he'll have to face suffering and maybe death.
