My husband was watching the movie ‘The price to pay’ or as it is known in France ‘Le Prix a Prayer’ the other night, he had not seen it before but I had, it is a movie which made me laugh. It is not a Christian movie, but it does demonstrate temptation in the movie. What I love about this movie is that the husband (Christian Clavier) has worked hard all his life so that his wife (Nathalie Baye) and his daughter (Anais Demoustier) can enjoy everything in life, until one day he has enough and realizes that his marriage is in bad shape turns to his chauffer (Gerard Lanvin) for advice. His chauffer has been living with his partner (Geraldine Pailhas) is tired of her wanting to spend time writing than spending time with him. The men devise a simple plan – cut off the money to the women and they will in turn come back to the men. What the men soon start to realize is that what sounds great in theory doesn’t always turn out the way we want it to.
With the money gone for the two women temptation comes as they struggle to deal with what the men are doing to them. The women react in different ways. The men so sure that the women will be back in there arms so quickly once the money is gone, go from one extreme to the other to prove their point.
Bottom line of this movie – Choose wisely who you get marriage advice from.
Proverbs 13:20 – He who walks with the wise grow wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.
