What pisses me off about Anatole and Hélène is that they both know Natasha is engaged to Andrei, but neither care. He sees an opportunity to have a young woman because she is naive and because it would be fun to do so. He doesn’t care about her at all. Natasha’s mistake is not in what she feels, but that she won’t confide in anyone and she’s to inexperienced to make a good decision here.
