Yes, I think we have.

Do you remember that wonderful

waltz we had together in Paris?


Leave him alone!


- What's the matter with you?

- He doesn't want you bothering him!

He is not a he.

He's just a bunch of old rags.

Come in for lunch.

She... she didn't mean to be rude.

Come on, Agnes.


Mr Marchand, what did you think

of the pamphlet I sent you?

- I've been waiting for you to...

- Oh, why does he keep bothering us?


- Docteur!

- All right, I'm coming.

Wait here.

Please, could you help him?

Ah, Monsieur Larbaud.

Forgive us for bothering you.

I am just finishing my dinner.

I'm afraid ifs a matter

of some urgency.

We are looking for an escaped prisoner,

He ran off with two of his friends.

We've got the others but this one

young man may still be nearby.

- I have seen nothing.

- Oh, excuse me, Monsieur.

I believe you and your daughter

witnessed the Incident.

Shut the door.

What are you doing?

The wind and the rain...

He'll be hurt.

You'd better hurry before

your father comes back.

A young man?

No, I've seen nobody.

I wish I had.

Good evening, young lady.

Now, don't be afraid.

We just want to know if you've

seen anyone near the house today.

Tell him.


No one.

You've seen no one at all?


Only my scarecrow.

In the garden.

Is there anything more?

No, nothing more, thank you.

But if you should see or hear

anything that might interest us...

Good night.

No, don't move.

You look so tired.

- The police?

- You mustn't worry about them.

They've gone.

You see? It's true. He's alive.

Alive but no scarecrow.

He is. He's mine. I made him.

We'd better tell the police.

The police?

Why? Why would they want him?

Don't be an idiot. You

know very well who he is.

Not bad-looking, either.
