The Last Witness

 
Martin Guerre Soundtrack Musical, 1999
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

The Last Witness Please your Lordship, lend an ear
You should see this musketeer
He wants to address the court
Looks impressive...and I thought
Judge Coras
Wait!
Very well, show him in, let him speak
Villager
But my lord!
(Martin enters and stands on the platform)
Judge Coras
State your name
Martin
My name is Guerre...Martin Guerre
(Guillaume runs to look at him closer)
Arnaud
Can't you see by the look on his face, it's not him!
Bertrande
He's been sent by a devil, a demon, a ghost... Oh God, please!
Arnaud
Can't you see this apparition here is the imposter
He's been sent from hell to torment me
And at the same time would steal my wife and steal the name of Martin Guerre!
My lord, it's all a ploy devised by them
Pierre Guerre, when he found I was a Protestant hated me!
He never wanted me to inherit the land!
Martin
My friend, my friend, it's me, Martin
(he throws Arnaud the pouch they had on the battlefield in Flanders)
Judge Coras
Is there anyone here who can vouch for this man?
If there's anyone here I insist they come forward and speak
(Lubin measures Martin, Galoche measures his feet)
Villager
That's Martin, my lord, I should know, I used to work with him!
Crone
If you're asking me, sir, I know who I'd prefer
Lubin
And the arm, look, it's neither too long or too short
Galoche
And his feet are exactly the size that they ought
Pierre
It's him...my own flesh
Welcome home, Martin
Mme de Rols
Please forgive us, my son, you're back
Three Crones
Can you be sure Martin is back?
Martin
I have come for my name
I am Martin Guerre
Judge Coras
Bertrande, I call on you once again
You must condemn one of these men
(Catherine and Mme de Rols help Bertrande onto the platform)
Mme de Rols
Remember, dear, you're one of us
Pierre
Remember Artigat, Bertrande
Bertrande
Martin, Martin...
What shall I do?
Catherine
Did he lie to you?
Villager
He lied to us all
Bertrande
Martin, what shall I say?
Villagers
You must condemn one of these men
Bertrande
Martin, what have we done?
Judge Coras
The time has come to tell the truth, only the truth
Villagers
Tell us the truth
Judge Coras
Only the truth can help you now
(the villagers surround Bertrande, pulling her in all directions)
Arnaud
My name...is Arnaud du Thil
