Many people in Western cultures observe a period of mourning after a close relative has passed away or wear black as a sign that someone close to them has died. Yet Meursault shows no indication that his mother’s death has altered his habits. He mentions his mother’s death to Marie as casually as he might say that yesterday, he went to a ballgame or the opening of a play. Perhaps that is why Marie is not deeply affected by the news of the death. That evening, Marie and Meursault go to the movies to see a comedy starring the French actor Fernandel.
They nod their heads and suck their toothless gums. One of the old women at the vigil weeps, and the doorkeeper tells Meursault that his mother had been her closest friend. “Now she’s all alone,” he explains. As the night progresses, Meursault grows tired and becomes aware of a pain in his legs. At dawn, all the old people shake hands with Meursault and leave. Many critics have described Meursault’s behavior at the funeral as antisocial, as an inability to relate to other people regardless of the circumstances.
Going to the home, where she could make friends, was the best thing for her, he feels. ” His head is aching, his first cigarette tastes bitter, and he has trouble getting out of bed.

His bad mood on waking seems to foreshadow the events to come. Perhaps his mood is a warning that he should stay home. Marie, on the other hand, is excited about the excursion.
