You're alive, after all.

Hello?

Hello?

I got your note.

Hi.

Uh...

Hi.

Go out.

Go out on the balcony.

I...

I wasn't sure you got it.

I was wondering if I

put it in the wrong box?

No.

No. It's mine.

So...

The note.

I just thought since we...

I thought it would be

nice to finally meet you.

Beatrice.

Victor.

No, thanks.

You don't talk a lot.

Not much, no.

It's okay.

I talk enough

for both of us.

I talk too much.

Everybody says so.

Um...

You speak French?

I'd like to.

Yeah?

Sure.

Another language?

Hungarian.

You're Hungarian?

You don't have an accent.

I worked very hard

to get rid of it.

So...

A job?

I'm...

Right now I'm

dabbling in real estate.

The people I work for, they buy

buildings in need of renovations.

Fix them up and run them.

Hmm.

YOU? A jab?

Yeah.

I was involved in

a car accident last year.

I was a beautician before.

They rebuilt part of my face.

But it's kind of hard

to give advice on beauty now.

And...

I have to smile

a lot in my job.

Most of the time,

it hurts to smile.

I don't get to smile

so much in my work.

No?

No.

Maybe you and I should switch jobs.

Yeah.

So, what else?

I swear sometimes.

Especially when I drink.

Me too.

F*ck.

Shit.

Careful. You're smiling.

Tonight it's worth it.

I want to

take you somewhere.

So where are we going?

Are we going to a club?

No.

No?

Very cold.

Very cold.

Yeah.

All right.

Well, then are

we going to a park?

Hmm...

Warmer.

I thought you talk a lot?

I thought you don't.

Must be the company.

Usually, I don't.

You can turn here.

Pull over. Just there.

You're afraid I'll think you came

tonight because you felt sorry for me.

You don't have to

play these games, Victor.

I know why you really came.

You're just being careful.
