 Lorenzaccio de Alfred de Musset
Lorenzaccio est la célèbre pièce de théâtre (drame) écrite par Alfred de Musset en 1834, sur une idée de George Sand.
Incarnant toute la débauche de Florence, Lorenzo jouera un double jeu pendant toute la pièce, celui de « Lorenzino », héros romantique par excellence, empli d'idéaux et inspiré par les deux Brutus, et celui de « Lorenzaccio », personnage corrompu et pervers, qui lui collera bientôt à la peau.
Tâche difficile : son cousin, le bâtard Alexandre de Médicis, règne sur Florence avec l'appui de l'empereur d'Allemagne et du pape ; une garnison allemande assure sa protection ; le cardinal Cibo, qui défend à la fois les intérêts de Charles-Quint et ceux du pontife romain, est son plus ferme soutien.

Before Sand meets Musset, Kurys shows her reading to a literary salon, stating that men were unconcerned with the physical pleasure of women.
Musset, and the heated passion generated between the two, surely changed her mind.

In "Children of the Century," Diane Kurys' bravura film of the tempestuous love story of George Sand and Alfred de Musset, two of the major literary figures of their time, Kurys felicitously defines Romanticism as an expression of the postwar conflict between idealism and cynicism.
In her Sand mode, she regales that Parisian salon audience with her declaration that marriage is a form of slavery and that husbands find it easier to accuse their wives of frigidity than to try to ensure that they experience sexual pleasure.
In essence Sand is a mature woman, aware of the possible consequences of her defiant behavior and attitudes, and one who embraces life joyously and full of laughter.

Played by Binoche's real-life main squeeze Benoit Magimel, Musset is painted as a spoiled brat and Sand, ultimately seems like the naïve innocent for putting up with his baloney-hence the film's title.
Indeed, the pattern of the entire film consists of their making passionate love, Musset abandoning her for the brothels and his opium, their steamy reconciliation, with this cycle repeating itself over and over.
The screenplay was apparently based on Musset's autobiography but perhaps Sand's own account of the affair in her memoir, She and He, would have been more insightful, given her penchant for boldness.

Colet's then infamous novel, Lui, was based on three romances: her short lived romance with Alfred de Musset; her affair with Gustave Flaubert; and Alfred de Musset's love of noted novelist George Sand.
There are several clues to her intentions from the introduction of the novel, where she makes such scathing remarks as "men's physical beauty has now become as rare as their moral beauty has always been" (Colet 3).
Colet and Musset could never be in love, for when they are together, each longs for another: Colet for Flaubert, Musset for Sand.
