I hope you'll stop by when I

open for business next week.

Yes.

Yes, opening a patisserie

during the holy Lenten fast.

I could imagine better timing.

Oh, but it's not going to be a patisserie.

Then what do you intend to...

It's a surprise.

It was sweet of you to drop by.

STORYTELLER:
The Comte de Reynaud...

was a student of history, and

therefore a patient man.

He trusted the wisdom of generations past.

Like his ancestors, he watched

over the little village...

and led by his own example...

hard work, modesty...

self-discipline.

I have completed the 18th Century.

[Sniffling]

Madame Clairmont.

Your letter to the editor, Monsieur le Comte.

This paragraph about family and tradition, it's...

it's beautiful.

Oh! Ha ha.

Well, thank you.

I value your opinion.

[Dog barking]

[Door closes]

VIANNE:
Bonjour! Hello!

REYNAUD:
May I ask...

have you been in contact with your mother recently?

CAROLINE:
Why?

She seems to have rented out the patisserie.

CAROLINE:
Oh.

I haven't talked to my mother in quite a while.

I'm sorry. I did not mean to pry.

Oh, don't be silly.

I have no secrets from you.

How is the contesse enjoying Venice?

The contesse? Oh, she's fine, thank you.

Yes, she's enjoying it very much.

Venice.

[Sighs]

WOMAN:
I heard she was some kind of radical.

I heard she's an atheist.

What's that?

Don't know.

GUILLAUME:
Come on, Charly.

[Whimpering]

Come on.

Oh!

Uhh! Oh!

You should be more careful!

-So sorry, Madame. -I'm sorry.

VIANNE:
Are you all right?

CAROLINE:
I'm fine, I'm fine.

VIANNE:
I'm sorry. Do you

want to come in and sit down?

CAROLINE:
Please don't trouble your self. I'm fine.

VIANNE:
No, it's no trouble. I'm Vianne Rocher.

Caroline Clairmont.

I'm the daughter of your land lady.

This is my son Luc.

VIANNE:
Hello. And this is my Anouk.
