But even in this moment of crisis, Svirsky can find time to murder the young officer who has been having an affair with Countess Svirska. The Countess knows what has happened, but she loyally remains with her husband as they escape to the safety of the French Riviera. It is here that the Countess meets Henri de Cassel, the “living image” of her dead lover.
