- Sonia...



I'm pleased you called me.

I don't know many people here.

I almost didn't.

But I was curious.

Someone like you

in a place like that...

With too many choices, you always

end up making the wrong one.

You don't know anything about me.

There was a wood behind our house

that went down to a river.

I'd spend the whole day there.

Then mom would come looking for me

because she'd be worried.

Then what?

My mother died and I came here

to stay with my father.

He's Italian, from Ancona.

He'd already started

another family.

It didn't work out, so I left

and kept moving around.

But now I'd like

to stay here for a while.

Why did you come to Turin?

I don't know, maybe the river.

You, show me your ID.

F*ck you.

- What did you say?

- F*ck you.

- F*ck who?

- You!

F*ck you!


- You disappeared.

- Never gone anywhere.

Good boy, Guido, you look good.

- Thanks.

- Did I interrupt something?

- Sonia.

- Dante.

I'll get going.

Call me, huh?

- Trouble with the police?

- Me?

From the look on your face...

I've got some grass on me.

- You are a cop.

- I was.

Then what?

Then... nothing.

Want to smoke?

I'd better not.

You go swimming often?

Your hair...

smells of chlorine.

You were a good cop.

Was your wood like this?

If you want I'll make you a CD.

I don't have much to do.

It's not bad being a watchman,

you don't even have to wear a uniform.

I hate mine.

I only wearit

when the owneris here.

- What's he like?

- I've only met him three times.

That's my colleague's wife.

- There's nothing of yours here?

- This.

You listened to the wood

through it.

It's a shotgun mic,

but I adapted it a bit.

It has a hypercardioid valve

with a frequency of 50 Hertz.

It shoots at sound.
