In The Matrix Reloaded, there’s the scene in the restaurant where the Merovingian is saying exactly how a lot he likes the French language, “particularly to curse through.” He then claims somepoint in French, and concludes, “It’s like wiping your ass via silk. I love it.”

So French-speaking Dopers, what’s he saying as soon as he’s speaking French? I’d likewise favor to understand what he says in French later on to Persephone when he catches her helping Neo et al.

“I have actually sampled eextremely language, french is my favorite. Fantastic language, especially to curse via. Nom de dieu de putain de bordel de merde de saloperie de connard d’enculé de ta mère.”

See if you want a aboriginal speaker to take a crack at it. Tright here are several explacountries at the place provided over. It is additionally renoted that cursing doesn’t constantly analyze nicely (especially since invective tends to be laced via all manner of idioms, which by definition are not taken literally). I’ll avoid offering a translation as it certainly isn’t fit for family members viewing.

I guess a rough translation of

“Nom de dieu de putain de bordel de merde de saloperie de connard d’enculé de ta mère.” (some of the de’s might be du’s, which alters the meaning a bit)

could be

Name of god of the whore of the brothel of shit of the filth of the asshole that butt-fucked your mom.

Makes a greeting card, doncha think?
