Don't you remember me?

No. Should I?

Our paths crossed many years ago.

- you want something?

- A cup of coffee.

I was told that many years ago

you were left with grandmother,

i did not know that for so long.

Here is my home.

in 10 years you lived in 3 countries

and wanted to travel all the world.

For 10 I collected memories and

now I want to forget everything.


I have a letter from Elliot.

- So what?

- He wants to see you.

- Why?

- I don't know.

In the evening in Paris.

What is this?

One of the toys he left me.

You will not need him.

From where do you know Elliot?

Is there M. Elloit?

He warned he would be late.

He asked to wait for him

in the suite.

Be careful.

- With what?

- With the gun.

It is not mine,

a friend lent it to me.

I promised not to use it.

Then why did you load it?

I was warned that you are

still by the same.

Wanted to scare you.

Go on, scare.

Only Elliot could choose

such a foolish name.

When Elliot or Mulligan

was leaving France,

he had no son.

He married my mother when I was 13.

Ah so...

Then meet your sister.

- My sister?

- Yes, your sister.

Before leaving for States

your dad had a family.

Are you sure?

- Why did not he tell me?

- I don't know.


Is M. Mulligan at home?

Perhaps he registered as Elliot.

I was told that 2 women will come

and an American.

"They are not expecting me

at this party,

"I wanted to make a surprise".

OK. I shall warn them.

If you'll warn them,

it would not be a surprise.

Elliot just left in a taxi.

How's that?

He was watching in the opposite house.

- You know him?

- No.

A lucky one.

- You did not remember?

- No.

William Pound.

used to work with your dad.

He appears when

a dirty job is needed.

Good evening,

William Pound speaking.

Yes, I just killed somebody.

Do not be so sad.

He was just a concierge.

The only thing that worries me

is that I lost again.

I had a feeling,

that I betrayed myself.

Yes, I know.

They are arriving.

- What is it?

- A turtle.

- What's her name?

- It's him, his name is Tortue.

- What shall we do?

- It's 3 in the night. We shall sleep.

Good night.

Hello, Mlle Montano.

I hope during the night

you did not do anything foolish.

We did not want to disturb your guests.

We are trying to find

your friend - M. Elliot.

You are his friend too?

He is already working

for us several years.

That means?

We represent a goup of banks.

M. Elliot is consulting us

about investments.

He did not know anything

about finances before.

He is not an economist.

But he can get information

regarding to finances.

His advices are valuable.

I like stories with happy endings.

The problem is

that M. Elliot disappeared

few weeks ago

and his last advices

concerned serious sums

of money invested in,

let us say, in certain sectors.

I have not seen Elliot for 10 years.

We know it.

We also know,

that 6 days ago he sent you a letter.

Yes, but he did not come.

He knows I love animals,

so he made an ass out of me.

Our headquarters are in Riyadh,

but our European office is in Venice.

If you hear something new - call us.

Even if you don't let us know.

Perhaps we'll have an offer for you.

Goodbye, madam.

What do you think about it?

Well, easy.

No, I did not think about my father.

Frankly, I did not think about anything.

Yes, concierge -

a man with keyes and a candle.

pervert and so on.

I had not anything fallic in mind

or anything concerning sex.

Well, allright.

Thank you, doctor,

I feel myself better now.

See you soon.

She would not bite you.
