are already occupied.

Let me have the two that aren't.

Would you like to

have a look at them?

I'll take your word for it.

Thank you, madam.

Miranda. And you?


Here, boss. The consul

asked me to give you this.

Ciao, Miranda.

Well, thanks!



There's something

for you in my pocket.

Your hand's like a man who's

very old and still a baby too.

I admire the way fish make love.

They leave a stream of semen

behind them in the current

without even coupling with

their mate.



Like your hand in me now.

Why don't you

go away with me?

I've nearly completed my term

of exile. They're bound to

give me amnesty soon.

I'm very old and rich,

isn't that guarantee enough?

Baby, it's your skin

I like best, it's tired.

I adore your white hairs.

It's all like a second

opportunity for you, darling.

Now I could change that.

Come inside me, Carlo.

Tell me why you never do, please.

I'm afraid

you might get pregnant.

It's ridiculous at my age,

don't you think?

Afraid for me or

of being a father?

You don't have to worry, darling.

Is Tony aware

that we come here?

Of course. I always

tell him who I'm with.

I might have known,

women are all the same.

The necklace you gave me

looks pretty, doesn't it?

I'll buy a hundred for you.

I'll give you anything you like,

my family has money.

In Naples, I have a palace just

waiting for us. I lived there

with my wife 'til she died.

Anonymous, mute...

The fish are better.

- I've grown jealous, you know.

- Of Berto?

You seem to forget you told me you

like the idea of us two making love.

'The Body can admit other partners

the heart never' .

What does that mean?

It's my heart that cannot bear

your having lovers.

My balls don't care.
