I'm still late, Thierry.


Grace, Signora. They are equal.



'I gave myself to the stranger

completely unrestrained.'

Every restraint, every demand,

every breath became a challenge.

I opened my eyes and saw my

spirit walk among the living.

At the same time I found the view

of my lover dangerous and exciting.

The charm of being pulled into the depths...

...and to dwell forever in this illusion was...

...was overwhelming for me.

And I discovered...

...that pain and pleasure are superficial.

But love breaks through all that.

He did not know love.

'But I really wanted to find her.'

Thank you.

Compliment, that was wonderful.

- Thank you.

Bravo, my compliment.

- Oh thank you. Excuse me.

Very pleased. A wonderful book.

- Thank you thank you.

It really is you.

I hoped it was just imagination.

Like a ghost from your book.

What do you want in Italy?

Did not you invite me?

I have read your book.

It was very good.

Of course, my memory is different.

Do not you like your presentation?

- I do not like to play the bad guy.

I would not have loved you.

What do you want?

I wanted to see you.

- You have that now.

Did you miss me?

We were pathetic together.

We were perfect.

Maybe a bit heavy.

I will go to a villa today.

Come along.

To a villa? For real?

You can forget that.

- There are some interesting people.

I have to be in Rome on Tuesday.

Is no problem.

I'm supposed to meet

Thierry's parents in Paris.

My idea is more amusing, I promise.

A present for tonight.

I know you love theater.

A car will wait for you...

...just in case.

Chrie, what are you doing out here alone?

I have to ask you something.

Do you love me more when

I treat you like him?

Like a whore?

Oh, you're off.

Sadie, wait.

Sadie, stop tormenting yourself.

Let me help you...

- I am not disturbed.

Without me you are completely alone.

So, when exactly do you

have to be in Paris?

Leave it.

Let's say hello.

That was a great performance.

- Thank you, Mr. Zarr.

This is my friend Sadie Glass.

Sadie, Francesca.

She is on a reading tour.

I want to convince her of the villa.

Do you have something better to do?

- It is a bit complicated.

My things are in the hotel and I

can not go back there right now.

My driver will pick you up.

- You really always have a solution.

And you get the excuses.

Alright, if she comes along.

There is enough space for everyone.

Thank you very much. I get my things.

I knew you understood.

Did you have any romantic plans?

I will not f*** with you.

For a fresh start.

On material for my next book.

A nice cookie.

Not really. People here believe

the whole region is cursed.

And then her Catholic guilt feelings.

Really a deadly combination.

- Sounds very exhausting.

Under the village run various tunnels.

Escape for innocents.

That excludes us then, right?

We could still use it to escape from you.

They say they lead to hell.


That's beautiful.

And who does this belong to?

Business partners of mine.

Can you sell your soul twice?

Germans are not picky.

Congratulations, now you

have everything you wanted.

No, not all.


Look around, Minos brings

the bags to your room.




Have you already confessed your sins?

This way.

Hey. Come along.

Do you want to be an actress?

No. I want to become a star in America.

I sent out my showreel, but

without contacts, nothing works.

What is on it?

I recorded monologues.

Can you show me one?

Yes. OK...

Wait wait.

I cried last night.
