5 INT. HOTEL L’EDEN. RECEPTION - DUSK 1 5

A standard hotel reception, nothing impressive or

particularly unimpressive, just average. And very quiet.

Behind the desk, an old plump French woman with white hair

and glasses doing a crossword. She smiles at Tony who

SYLVIE:

Is it still raining?

A typical, broad Haussmann-designed boulevard in Paris. The
