Well... uh...

Want me to try?

It must be one of them.


Let me try.

You'll see, it's really beautiful.


I don't know why it didn't work.

Well... welcome aboard.

Go on in.

It's beautiful.

Nicer than Corsica, isn't it?

It really is beautiful.

It's delightful.


There are clean sheets and towels

in the bedroom cupboard.


The TV works.


Juliette, look.

Hey lucky, you've got

a lovely single bed.

You can have it.

Take the bottom one.

The top one's got slats missing.

You might fall through!

Just kidding.

Is there internet?

No, but if you need it

I live nearby

and I have it.

Just drop in or give me a call.

We don't want to bother you.

It's no bother. I'd like it.

Are you from Paris?


Well, close... Asnires.

I know the Porte de Champerret well.

The Rue Guillaume Tell,

Boulevard Berthier...

What a coincidence!

I take the bus there every day.

How funny.



Good morning.

Are you OK?

Yeah, and you?

Hello, ladies.


Are you rounding us up?

- Don't be scared.

- We're not scared.

I'll save you wasting your time.

We don't like men.

Are you dykes?

Yep, sorry.

Mum, that's disgusting!

- No way!

- She's her old mare!

Old mare? The old mare

and the 3 virgins, then.

One of the 3 virgins

likes to experiment.

Are you from round here?

No, we're not.

So you don't know the area?

Fancy coming for a drink tonight?

- In a local club.

- No, thanks.

No, no...

I'm here with my other half.

What other half?

My husband.

- You're married?

- Yes.

Where is he, then?

Over there, watching.

He's the jealous type, so...

He doesn't need to know.

I'm jealous.

Plenty more fish in the sea.

Yes, but I've got a looker.

He's over there.

- Him?

- Yes.

I'm disappointed.


- Hi.

- Hello.

I'm Sylvain.



Do you know each other?

No, but they were offering

to take us for a drink.

I said you wouldn't like that.

You being jealous and all.

No, that's no problem.

Are you really a couple?


They're taking the piss, let's go.


They're not even fuckable!

Hey, cut it out!

Well, goodbye.

They're really aggressive.

You ruined our chances there.

Hello, Sylvain.

- Sunning yourself?

- Yes.

How are you?

It's warm. What's new?

Nothing special.

How's Julien?

He's signed another

short-term contract. His third.

- No?

- At 28 it's getting to be a joke.


it won't get him a girlfriend.

Have you got a euro?

For my scratch card.



We weren't too long, were we?

- Hello.

- You really are sweet.

My friend Marie.

Patricia, Juliette.

- Please to meet you.

- Hello.

We were having a chin wag in the sun.

Well... I'll leave you to your friends.

- Bye.

- Bye.

Everyone knows everyone here.

Push in a straight line,

with this on your stomach.

Like this.

Try it, you'll see.

Lift vertically, not as with a flag.

Like that.

Go on, push. Go on.

That way, that way...

Look ahead, keep up straight.

Keep walking.

- I trod on something.

- Let me see.

It was probably a crab.

- Caught much?

- Yes.

Ladies, you mustn't talk

to men like him.

He's a psycho.

He's already raped loads of girls.

Give over!

Going to introduce me?

Gilles... Patricia... Juliette...


Are you sisters?

I wish.

I'm sure you don't look

your age, anyway.


Friends of Sylvain's?

No. Well... yes.

We just met.

Are you here for a while?

Till the end of the week.

We're going that way,

looking for shrimp.

OK, see you soon.

Enjoy the fishing.


Look straight ahead.

It's not easy.
