Days Of Darkness

Synopsis: Jean-Marc is a man without qualities living in times that are out of joint. His wife and children ignore him; he's a mid-level civil servant in Montreal doing his job without care. He has an active imagination of sexual conquest, but his only real feelings come when he visits his aged mother, whose health is failing. When his wife leaves abruptly to work in Toronto, Jean-Marc sets out to reorder things with his daughters, his social life, and at work. In a world that at best is a farce, does he stand a chance?

~Voc did not hear that, fondness.

I am not a child, mummy.

You are a girl. She is my girl.

These are my towels.

Do not touch them, yes?

Cannot we get on well all?

When what fancied.

Very funny.

Trent, we finish of saving him

the life and that of his brother.

But the day of the Sir will come

like thief in the night,

in which the skies will pass

with great crash

and the elements burning

they will be undone

and the land and the works that in her are,

they will be burned.

It is which God has.

What thing?

I do not like his attitude.

Trent, his attitude is crap.


D.J., place it on the table.


With care.

They are Jane, Kylie

and I believe that you know Simon.

With care.

I need a cursed mouthful.

I need a cursed cigaret.

I need to go away from here.

It is making me nervous.

Be going to watch the enclosure.

Yes, lady.

Thank you.

Do you come?

Since something had been better to do.

Military training. Sometimes it is useful.

How is she?

Well. Only precise to rest.

Do you have water?

Yes, clear.

What happened with his arm?

One of these things bit me.


I am well.

Let me see.

Wait here. I return next.


Obliged because of helping us.

How did it find this place?

It was coming here from boy.

With my oldest brother.

Vnhamnos to camp

and we were playing of war

of killing and deluding the enemy.

And here we are.

It is made graceful as everything ended.

Does it think that that is made graceful?

Soon in my last horse,

I decided what was sufficient.

What happens if he sees me doing this?

She is still pure.

I have been watching it.

Only it is waiting

is not the certain man, wanted?

It was going to make the commercial part.

To produce, this type of things.

It was in my party itself of farewell.
