Come on, give me some dough. Im broke.

Im not just hungover. I have no money.

Listen, Stan, I already gave you

and instead of the script

I only got three lousy pages.

Im not your Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, sweety.

Think cause you crashed your car,

you can shove your shit onto me?

I dont have a penny to my name,

look what Im banging on.

Youre banging your whiskey

on the table, I see that alright.

Do you suck ice cubes?

- It's not about that.

- It's not about that.

Have you tried to check

how much alcohol is in your blood?

What are you talking about? Come on!

Shut up and listen. You'll be


Abigail has fallen into a habit

of sitting down on my bed every day...

eating crackers or a biscuit...

at night I felt

the crumbs rolling on my skin...

falling out of her child's teeth,

they sharpened my criminal desire...

and inflamed my sleepless nights

with convulsive erections.

I showed her how I could draw

sewing needles with just one line...

and the smaller the eye was...

the harder she laughed

with her silent and nervous laughter...

and clapped her hands

leaning back on my bed.

Not bad.

- This is great, isn't it?

- What?

This is great!

An arthouse film.

Of course.

One night she cuddled up to me

with her body full of goose bumps...

like a chicken in the polar cold

of the large living room

on the folding bed in the empty pool

where battered stars were falling down,

the only loving words

that I've said in my life.

whispered in the ear of this mute deaf girl.

- In the ear of this mute deaf girl.

- Not bad.

- I'll continue.

- What?

- I'll continue reading.

- What?

I'll go on.

Unconsciously, I uttered

unbelievable scabrous words...

that came out like ventriloquisms

from my clenched teeth...

when under me,

writhing in euphoria...

and instinctive orgasmic attempts,

little Abigail screamed in silence!

I couldn't come.

Afraid of the explosion

that seemed inevitable...

that was tormenting my insides,

at the exact moment...

when I was ready to give up my soul,

crying, I suppressed the orgasm...

and tore myself away from my prey.

And these few grams

and milliliters of semen...

hit into my brain

and caused an inflammation...

the consequence was like

a dazzling flashback.

With many idle attempts, I tried

furiously masturbating to lance this abscess...

burning my skull,

but never that warm serum...

that came to light was the same

that came out that memorable night.

On the next day Abigail was sent

to the boarding school.

What am I supposed to do with it? Honestly.

If you think

I'll give you another ten grand...

for what you just read,

you are sadly mistaken.

Oh, you're here.

Charlotte, give Uncle Herman a kiss.

F*ck you, "uncle"!

There was a time when you were

jumping on my knees... even wet my pants once.

What shoots at the heel

but gets in your nose.


Yes, yes, shut up.


See, Herman?

Charlotte, my dear Charlotte,

I feel so sorry for your mom.

You know, I loved her a lot.

I'll never forget

her bright eyes...

her beautiful hands.

Stan, think about your daughter.

She's a miracle.

You're killing yourself - you drink, you smoke,

you f*ck around.

While this girl lives for your sake.

First, her mother died, and if it's going

to be like this, you won't last six months either.

I'm not dead yet, you old fool.

I forbid you to nag at Charlotte.


Forget it.

You're afraid to object

aren't you.

The past has only taught me

one thing:

the only way to stay alive

is to go with the flow...

and see what happens.

Serge Gainsbourg

Serge Gainsbourg (born Lucien Ginsburg; French pronunciation: ​[sɛʁʒ ɡɛ̃sbuʁ]; 2 April 1928 – 2 March 1991) was a French singer, songwriter, pianist, film composer, poet, painter, screenwriter, writer, actor, and director. Regarded as one of the most important figures in French popular music, he was renowned for his often provocative and scandalous releases, as well as his diverse artistic output, which embodied genres ranging from jazz, mambo, world, chanson, pop and yé-yé, to rock and roll, progressive rock, reggae, electronic, disco, new wave, and funk. Gainsbourg's varied musical style and individuality make him difficult to categorize although his legacy has been firmly established and he is often regarded as one of the world's most influential popular musicians.His lyrical works incorporated a vast amount of clever word play to hoodwink the listener, often for humorous, provocative, satirical or subversive reasons. Common types of word play in his songs include mondegreen, onomatopoeia, rhyme, spoonerism, dysphemism, paraprosdokian and pun. Through the course of his career, Gainsbourg wrote over 550 songs, which have been covered more than 1,000 times by a wide range of artists. Since his death, Gainsbourg's music has reached legendary stature in France, and he is regarded as one of France’s most revered musicians. He has also gained a cult following in the English-speaking world, with numerous artists influenced by his arrangements. more…
