No, still 8-6 for Narbonne,

it ends in 30 seconds.

The referee ends the match

with the score 8-6.

Narbonne eliminates Agen

and qualifies for the final.

Done. I'll call back tonight. Bye.

My name is Jrme Thomas,

Sometimes they call me Tom.

Or Jerry. Sports journalist.

I've come from Paris for the match.

Do you want to know anything else?

But I haven't asked you anything.

Listen girl, you didn't stop watching

me throughout the game.

True or false?

Absolutely true.

So we agree.

Don't move, I'm off to

the dressing room and I'll pick you up.


Not on that.

- Do you...

- Shh!

I'll rid of my article first

and we'll talk later.

Well, no, I'll do it later.

Come and take care of me.

What did you mean earlier?

Do you...

prefer to remove your socks,

or to keep them?

Let's compromise, remove one of them

and leave the other one.

- Shall I see you tonight?

- No.

- Will you be working?

- No.

- What will you be doing?

- I don't know. Good evening, comrade.

The truth is

I had dinner with friends,

Biarritz journalists and players,

as usual.

After dinner we went for a drink.

Around midnight, I was leaving.

Well, I'm off to bed, good night.

Then the door opened and she entered.

Call me a taxi, please.

I'll try again in a while,

if you want.

We'd give you a ride,

but we walked here.

This is water.


Come on guys,

we've had enough of your pectorals,

show us your shoulder blades.

It's still not answering.

Thank you, sir.

Could you come with me, please?

Can we take the song along?

Can we?

Why not?

Would you come with me?

Where are you going?

Is there a train to Paris tonight?

It's already left.

Do you live in Biarritz?

Tonight yes.

- Can I come to your place?

- Yes yes.

It's silly to say yes yes.

No, stop laughing.

And let's go at once,

I can't stay here.

It's good you didn't ask why.

It's good.

She made me take

very strong sleeping pills.

Very strong, do you understand?

Now it doesn't matter, I can sleep.



Get up, Paula.

My plane is in twenty minutes.

Why is it called The Sad Cafe?

The last night bar? I don't know.

- Perhaps a song.

- And where is my song?


- It will be cold now.

- No.

Are you leaving with me

or staying here?

I'm leaving.

I dreamed we meet in a bar

called The Sad Caf.

We looked at each other

and I was afraid,

it's funny.

Can I still stay with you today?


You'll go to my place.

I must go straight to the paper.

I'll be home tonight.

Buy us some dinner.

No, I won't go out.

Alright. I'll bring things back.

- Tonight, I'll tell you.

- I'm not curious.

But I'm sensitive.

My dear Alexandre,

yes, I recognized

your hypocrite's voice,

put me through to my husband.


Hugo, darling, tell me,

between which thighs

did you spend the night?

You call me back

when you are not drunk.


You adore my first,

you treasure my second,

My third is all your life,

and my all


- Paula?

- How soon you've guessed, dear.

Yesterday night,

she took her sleeping pills,

I locked her for the night...

I don't care about details,

come back to Paris.

- Are you stopping everything, darling?

- No

It's already underway.

Oh, I forgot, sweetheart Hugo,

I'm in Paris,

and your darling little daughter too.

In the apartment

of a handsome young man.

Very funny. Address?

I'll send Marc and Bruno.

You know that in Biarritz I didn't drink

a single drop of alcohol.

Are you happy, darling?

The address, Eve?

Be a little patient, Micheli,

let me finish my glass.

Have you seen my yesterday's article?

Agen is undertaking, but rather
