The raid from film:
He saw the woman, as if snuffed out. He heard the screams of her husband and children. He saw the others watching like him. Were they without pity? Relieved that it wasn't them? He noticed the woman with the dogs in one of the doorways. Their gazes met. They looked at each other for a long instant. Then averted their eyes. And he knew what was making everyone so still and hushed:
It was shame. They were ashamed. Terribly ashamed.
The raid from book:
I saw a couple of police officers climbing into their car. Another two came through the hotel door, dragging a man into the street; I could tell from the way they were pulling at him that he was handcuffed to them. And as the police car sped off I reflected happily and wickedly on the fact that it wasn’t me. I clambered down to my floor. In the room to the left of mine a group of hotel guests were gathered around the crying and screaming wife of the man who’d been taken away, trying to console her.
At the gates of hell from film:
A man had died. He was to register in hell. He waited in front of a large door. He waited a day, two. He waited weeks. Months. Then years. Finally a man walked past him. The man waiting addressed him, ‟Perhaps you can help me.
I'm supposed to register in hell.” The other man looks him up and down, says, ‟But sir, this here is hell.”
At the gates of hell from book:
You know the fairy tale about the man who died, don’t you? He was waiting in Eternity to find out what the Lord had decided to do with him. He waited and waited, for one year, ten years, a hundred years. He begged and pleaded for a decision. Finally he couldn’t bear the waiting any longer. Then they said to him: ‘What do you think you’re waiting for? You’ve been in Hell for a long time already.’
He's having trouble breathing.
-Why not go to the emergency room?
He's illegal. He and his mother.
-And you are not?
No, I am, too.
The illegal immigrants dilemma:
You have no residence permit.
-But I don't mean to stay here.
But you have to prove that.
-And how do I do that?
You go to the police station and show them your visa and ship's passage.
-So... I can only stay here if... I can prove that I don't want to stay?
(Relevant quote from book:
When she asked for my safe conduct pass I hesitated. She laughed and said, “If there’s a raid it’ll be your bad luck not mine! You’ll pay me now for a week in advance. After all, you’re here without official permission. You should have applied first at the Prefecture for a permit to come to Marseille. To which country do you want to go?” I said I had no intention of going anywhere else. I had finally landed here after having escaped from the Germans and being hounded from one city to another. I didn’t have a visa, nor did I have a ticket for a ship’s passage, and I couldn’t walk across the ocean.)
