It seem to me that in the French version it takes longer for
The French charaters seem to take longer to accept the baby. They spend a lot of time arguing while the baby is
left on the doorstep. They discuss returning or giving the
baby to someone as though they are trying to avoid the
responsibility. Also Pierre leaves before the baby is
moved inside. In the American version they don't discuss
giving the baby to anyone, instead, they end up making a
combined effort to bring the baby in.

Do you think one group accepts the baby faster than the
other? Does this have any cultural implications?
