Mystic scenes JACQUER RIVET Monday in early July, between 3

and 4 o'clock in the afternoon.

Everything is fine?

Have a good night's sleep?

Good. Now we'll go down.

Do not rush, I'll have coffee.

Is Marianne all right?

Everything is fine!

Do you think I've changed?

No, not much.

Will we go by car?

No, it's close.

Admire the beautiful scenery.

You can not wait to see everything?

To me - no, but Nicolas

is a little excited.

Do not exaggerate.

This is more than the truth.

How did you get here

from Montpellier?

By taxi.

Only on it and you can get here.

Marianne, are you angry?

I'm jealous.

Nicolas more interested

in Frenhofer than me.

Is he really a genius?

I tried to read about it,

but did not find anything.

In the seventy-fourth

he threw everything.

He refused to exhibit?

You were not born then,

my little mademoiselle.

I wonder how you can live here.

I'm sure it's very good.

After my next exhibition,

I'll buy a house even more.

I would not live here.

You change your mind.

Maybe he is on the other

side and can not hear us?

Hears and is perfect.

Then I don't know...

Magali, how you grew up!

Do you know where

Monsieur and Madame are?

I do not know, Monsieur Porbus,

I'm looking for our cat Justine.

Liz! Edward!

Sorry. I help Franoise

bake a cake.

Did you come from the hotel on foot?

And, probably, you want to drink.

What can I bring you?

It does not matter, if only it was cold.

Need to change...

What about Frenhofer?

Marianne, come here.

What are they doing there?

Maybe they are not

happy to see us?

The sense did not burn!

There you are...

This is a hall of chimeras,

my favorite, because there

is nothing to care for.

Very beautiful.


And there are ghosts in the house?

No, only Frenhofer and I.

It's not a haunted castle.

By the way,

where did you hide Edouard?

I do not know, after

breakfast he disappeared.

So strange.

Do you like the garden?

Magali still remains?

- She has a dance lesson.

- And the truth. It's a pity.

Have you seen monsieur?

No, madam.

Maybe he's in the workshop?

He forgot about us.

Yes, it happens when he

thinks about something.

Pleases that he rarely does it.

Maybe we got in the way?

Well, what about you!

So, you found it.

By the way, Balthazar,

I was given a special

soap with arsenic

against ants. Is it not dangerous?

Can I touch him?

And what did you use before?

DDT mixed with soap.

Well, I would continue.

You're not too early?


Take it to your mother,

and this is put on my office.

Thank you.

- What day is today?

- Monday.

Yes, Monday. And I forgot.



"This is Marianne."


"Do you remember Nicolas?"

"Ah, Nicolas..."

Incredible, I forgot everything.

You meant "ashamed."

"Well, I'm sorry."

What a fever!

We have already grown naked.

Now we'll talk.

Let's go inside, it's cooler.

Something strange is happening here.

Honestly, Nicolas - strange.

Someday I will place

a telescope here.

Which can rotate

around its axis.

And then you can see

the whole landscape.

Who cares about the

landscape, eh, Nicolas?

Come, I want to show

you my workshop.
