Col cuore in gola (Deadly Sweet)


Pop, the 12th one.


- May I open?

- Open.

Is he your husband, madam?

Ok, Pop.

He died instantly,

miss Burroughs.

By a concussion.

So far there's no trace

of the car running down him.

Deadly Sweet


Hey Bernard, how do you do?

Ah, you're looking at

Jane Burroughs, aren't you?

Forget her.

Her father has just passed away.

That one is Jerome, her brother.

They are consoling themselves


Damn, what a bedlam!

Shall we dance too, will you?

They have it in just for me, I don't

understand. They are unbearable.

What's the matter with you?

Forget them, don't care about them.

A happy family, isn't it?

He's the mother's consolation.

Leris, an art dealer.

This is what he uses to say

about himself at least.

Dunno, let's forget that.

And you, what are you doing

here alone?

Well, bye, keep in touch

if you wish.

- Thank you, would you like to sit

down, darling? - No. - Please...

Let's go, come.

- Take it into my account.

- What?

Note down.

I'm sorry, your account

has been closed.

It's a Mr. Prescott's

order. I'm sorry.

Understood, I understood.

It wasn't me to do that.

It wasn't me to do that.

That car, there!

Qu'est-ce que c'est ton nom?

Wie heisst du?

Cmo te llamas?

Pos onomate es?

What's your name?

- What?

- Jane.

Ah, my name's Tarzan.

So, Jane, where are we going?

What did you do inside

that room?

I saw you left the club.

Why did you come back there?

Why did you go up to


Was he your lover?



Jane! Move, come on,

don't be childish.

About you and him

I don't give a damn.

If I'm asking you for it, it's

just for helping you out. Come on.

Move, come on.

Let's go, come.

As soon as Martha entered

the club together with Leris,

I was beside myself

with rage.

I went out to give vent

to my feelings.

And when I came back

I went up to Prescott's...

and he was there, lying down

the floor.

- Just like you saw him too.

Do you believe me? - Sure.

Yes, yes, and your brother?

Jerome, he went out together

with you, didn't he?

No, I don't know where

he went. Why?

But why did you go up

to Prescott's?

Because he was waiting for me. It has

been a week since daddy has passed away.

Swept away by a car.

Everybody said

it was an accident.

But I don't believe it.

I know exactly Prescott tried

to blackmail my daddy.



Ah, a blackmail.

And why?

- What did he do?

- Daddy?

Nothing at all.

He was a formidable man.

Immaculate, honest, even a guy a bit of

the old stamp but unable to do evil at all.

No, in case it's Martha.

Prescott had a strange picture

of his.

He wanted to use it

to compromise daddy.

This woman was so beautiful

that she was scaring me.

Oh, Bernard!

I'm explaining to you how things are

and you aren't even listening to me?

- So, did you understand?

- It's a very simple story.

Who killed Prescott

has stolen Jerome's picture too.

Or, if you prefer, who stole

Jerome's picture

has killed Prescott.

But why? Who?

Unless that picture was

somewhere else instead.

What are you doing?

I'm going to Prescott's.

Do you know where's his house?

At no. 23, Belgrave Road.

Ok, wait for me here.

I'm coming with you too.

No, you've to stay here.

Oh no, Bernard, be careful,

it's dangerous. Throw it away.

Yeah, you're right.

I took it only to

complicate this story.


To fund a counter.

Upstairs, hurry up!

Sh*t. The police.

Holy cow!

Be still!

What me worry?

I'm in a hurry, man, pull out the

agenda you stole from Prescott.

Ah, that one.

Here's it!

It's me, Jane.

You have scared me.

Open the door.
