This is a Biopic about Polish composer Frederic Chopin and French author George Sand in mid 19th century France.

At a large country estate, we see George Sand's son and daughter and the son of the owners of the estate playing outdoors. They are pretending that it's the French Revolution. They are holding a large frog they have named the "Viscount de Swamp" and we hear its call.They declare that the frog is guilty of crimes, then run off shouting "to the guillotine!" They find some gunpowder and start making a bomb.

Later we see the children in the woods where they have put the frog. We don't see the frog because of the leaves, but we hear the frog's call (which we heard earlier) so that's how we know it's there. One boy lights a fuse and runs away. We hear another of the frog's calls then we see an explosion. The girl goes to the spot and says "The Viscount has been completely obliterated." This is all supposed to be a comic interude in the movie, but the idea of children making a bomb and blowing up a frog is a little too sick to laugh. It certainly doesn't add to the plot in any important way.
