“Happy at gambling, unlucky in love”, they say… Hermann intends to find happiness in love by forcing his luck at cards… Everyone already sees the end of the story, except the German officer lost in his vain ideals. Nothing is going anymore. He is poor, and dreams of princely palaces. He sees himself as a romantic lover, and behaves like a bandit. Fevered by the passion of the game, her reason capsizes: “to live, to love? A game ! The good, the bad, childhood dreams! he exclaims, his eyes shining. When a rumor, a joke of soldiers, reaches his ears, the specter of addiction takes possession of him without return; he lives only to discover the magic secret of the three cards that bring fortune – half forgetting his primary objective, to marry Lisa. His quest makes good society smile.
