You're insane!

You'd upset him?

I'd offend him.

Ok, let's go.

Hold on tight!

Do you like it?

Let's see what's going on.

Be careful.

What the hell are you doing?


Get off my back! You idiot!

I screwed up.

You wanted four anyway, didn't you?

What's the problem?

Come and get some ropes.

Don't tell anyone about this!

My son loves to go fast.

Rather than drive slowly behind me,

he's going to stop, have a chat

and then race to catch up with me.

Not too quickly, I hope.

You've changed!

Why do you say that?

You were afraid of nothing once.

For ten years, with Val, I was afraid.

After Val's funeral,

I thought you'd come back here.

All that travelling,

all those cities...

This is your home here!

No, it's not my home anymore.

The children know nothing.


Where's your jacket?

I was too hot. It's in the car.

You could have put it on!

What's that smell of smoke?

What smell?

Don't smoke in front of grandmother.

Let's put on a good front.

Remember what I told you.

Follow the ritual.

Remember, men embrace men,

women embrace women.

Look at this beauty!

My sister thinks I'm a beauty queen

because I'm getting married!

She'll learn that marriage

has nothing to do with beauty or love,

does it, Judith?

Val was beautiful and I loved him.

You can see the dress tomorrow.

V\fill you help us prepare everything?

Of course.

We'll all help you.

Can you ride, Mira?

She mustn't!

Mira is too light for the horses here.

When I fell, I was her age.

My father never forgave me.


They had to kill his horse.

And I'll never find a husband!

Have you got a cigarette?

No, I'm sorry.

Ask one of my sons.

They smoke like chimneys.

You didn't tell anyone?

And Judith's sons?

They'll keep quiet.

You speak good French.

No, my accent is terrible.
