PLEASE COME.

THE ATMOSPHERE:

IS HEAVY IN HERE.

WHY HAVE YOU:

BROUGHT ME HERE?

IT IS HER ROOM, SIR.

I'VE HAD IT KEPT

EXACTLY AS SHE LEFT IT.

LOOK AROUND YOU, SIR.

THIS ROOM WAS:

FURNISHED AND ARRANGED

WITH DEDICATED LOVE.

EVERY ARTICLE OF FURNITURE,

EVERY DECORATIVE DETAIL

IS THE WORK:

OF A MASTER CRAFTSMAN

OF ITALY OR SPAIN

OR FRANCE.

INDEED, EVERY COUNTRY

IN THE CIVILIZED WORLD

IS REPRESENTED HERE.

IT IS A UNIQUE ROOM.

I DID IT ALL FOR HER.

I WANTED HER TO HAVE

SOMETHING THAT--

[CREAKING]

YOU MAY GO NOW.

IS THIS ALL:

YOU MEANT TO TELL ME?

YOU ARE AN UNYIELDING MAN,

MR. BARNARD.

I AM FORCED TO BE, SIR.

GOD AS MY WITNESS,

I WORSHIPPED YOUR SISTER.

I WORSHIP HER STILL.

WITHOUT HER,

LIFE IS MEANINGLESS.

SHE WAS THE VERY SUBSTANCE

OF LOVELINESS.

I TRIED TO CAPTURE IT,

BUT IT WAS THE WAY

SHE WALKED AND MOVED...

HER SMILE, HER VOICE.

SHE SANG LIKE AN ANGEL.

AND SHE COULD PLAY

THE HARPSICHORD:

AS NO OTHER WOMAN I HAVE

EVER KNOWN COULD PLAY.

EVERY NIGHT:

AFTER WE HAD DINED...

SHE WOULD PLAY FOR ME.

PLEASE FORGIVE ME.

I HAD NOT INTENDED

TO SO DISPLAY MYSELF.

I ONLY WANTED:

TO CONVINCE YOU.

NOW, PRAY, I...

BEG OF YOU TO:

LEAVE ME FOR A WHILE.

PLEASE, GO.

DO YOU LIVE IN LONDON,

MR. BARNARD?

YES, AND YOU?

IN BARCELONA,

WITH AN AUNT.

AND, UH, HAVE YOU

BEEN HERE LONG?

A LITTLE OVER A WEEK.

I CAME TO BE WITH

NICHOLAS BECAUSE I--

[KNOCK ON DOOR]

WHO WOULD THAT BE?

NICHOLAS.

HOW ARE YOU, MY FRIEND?

PALE.

SLEPT BADLY, HAVE YOU?

CHARLES,

WE HAVE A VISITOR.

WELL. SPLENDID,

SPLENDID.

EXACTLY WHAT YOU NEED.

CHARLES.

IT'S ELIZABETH'S

BROTHER.

OH?

YOU MEAN, HE'S--

YES.

DR. CHARLES LEON AT

YOUR SERVICE, SIR.
