Je m’en veux mais il n’y a rien que je puisse faire pour y échapper.
Hello. In your Week 35 B2 writing test, the above phrase triggers the subjunctive. It translates as:
"I feel bad about it, but there's nothing that I can do to get out of it!"
I suspect that it may be the emotion "I feel bad ... that" that triggers the subjunctive, because no desire or need is shown. However I'd be very grateful for any further help with this (extremely idiomatic) phrase!
This question relates to:French lesson "Vouloir que is always followed by Le Subjonctif Présent (subjunctive mood)"
