- What year?

- Third.

That's fantastic.

Are you enjoying the exhibition?

Yeah, it's not bad.

I like that it's about Africa.

It's something I'm interested in.

And what do you want to do?

I want to be a lawyer.

Are you proud of your...

These are young artists from Sarcelles?

Yeah, you gotta...


One needs to...

Are you also into photography?

I would love to...

But law school keeps me pretty busy.

How old are you?

Sorry, I'm a little intimidated...

You're very beautiful.

Thank you.

Maybe we can meet up later?

What do you think of him?

Yeah. He's interesting.

What was it you wanted to do?

Where did you want to work?

I want to work

for the International Criminal Court.

You'll be confronting real murderers.


I'll prosecute them.

What do you like about it?


Yes, justice.

So who are you seeing,

aside from your wife?

Hardly anyone.

My work keeps me busy.

I don't believe you.

Yes! People credit me

with more than my share of affairs.

But I have nothing against that.

Womanizers are a turn-on, aren't they?

And intelligent men.

What turns you on more?

Womanizers or intelligent men?

Brilliant men like you.

Do I look like the girls

you usually sleep with?


They don't have your youth,

your beauty, your intelligence.

You know, I used to really like...

How can I put it?

I liked sluts. Whores.

I can't shake the reputation.

But with you...

You know what I mean.

I was at boarding school, with the nuns.

Now I'm even more excited.

Come here, cutie pie.

Oh that's good.

Did the nuns teach you that?

They're brilliant. They really are.

They were great.

We studied this all day long.

There were lots of erotic books

in the 17th and 18th centuries

Written by nuns.

Written by nuns?

Of course!
