Eastern Boys

Synopsis: They come from all over Eastern Europe: Russia, Romania, Ukraine. They are Eastern boys. The oldest appear no more than 25; as for the youngest, there is no way of telling their age. They hang around the Gare du Nord train station in Paris. They might be prostitutes, but there is no way of knowing for certain. Muller, a discreet man in his late fifties has his eye on one of them - Marek. One afternoon, Muller gathers his courage and speaks to him. The young man agrees to come visit Muller the following day, at his place. However the next day, when the doorbell rings, Muller doesn't have the faintest idea that he has fallen into a trap.

What's your name?






12th floor. Left-hand door.

- Yes?

- Hello.

I'm Marek.

It's me, Marek.

The other day, you said, "Come."

Here I am.

No, I don't know you.

I don't know what you want. Go.

You can't stay here.

Don't touch me or I'll yell!

It's not right to do this.

It's not right.

I'm a minor too.


I'm a minor. You tell me, "Come."

But I'm only 14, it's illegal.

What is it you want?

What do you want?

This is a good door.

A security lock, right?

I'm not answering that.

Got an alarm?

I'm calling the cops.

Yes, there is an alarm.

Want to show me round?

Beautiful apartment.

Are you the owner?


That's good.

This is where to buy a place.

Cheaper than Paris but as good.

Property prices keep rising here.

How much was it?

I can't remember.

Of course you can.

You don't forget that.

Around 600,000. I forget now.


Yes, francs. It was 15 years ago.

That's what?


90,000 euros.

That's good.

Very good.

Don't touch that!

It's a big place.

You live alone?



You work out?

It doesn't show.

Maybe it's too late.

You've eaten too much.

You don't move enough.

And now you're old.

I don't want to be old.

I want to stay in good shape,

muscular and clean.


Because this body, see,

is the most important thing

that God has given us.

These machines are no use, you know.

What counts is the body's resistance.

The body's resistance to itself.

Look at me!

Go on...


It's free.


Got a hard-on?

You play at that?

How old are you?

What are you doing?

Can't you see that's fragile?

That's not right.

We're friendly with you.

We're talking, we're having fun...

And you, you yell at us.

That's not right.

I can raise my voice too.

You're the one...

who came after us at the station.

You're the one who told us to come.

You're the one.

We'll fix your fridge. Don't worry.

I love this one!



Want something to drink?


We said 50?




No, come up.

Yes, of course.


Just tell your friends to bring it back.

You understand?

Yes, that's him.

Before. Long ago.

A long time ago.



No, why would he be dead?

Yes, it works.

When will you be back?

I need to know when you'll be here.

I go out, I work, I see friends.

I have to know.

When can you come in the week?

Not in the afternoon. I work.

In the evening?

Every Monday evening?

And at the weekend?

I want to see you twice a week.

At least.

This is the hand.

The hand.

The finger...

The arm...

The shoulder...

The breast...

The nipple...

The neck...

The chin...

The mouth...

The smile...

Your smile... My smile...

To suck.

A verb.

I suck you.

You want to smoke?

No, not here. On the balcony.

So where are you from? Moscow?

I thought you were all Russian.

And what are you?

Are you OK?

They hurt? Let me see.

Let me see.

You need a dentist.

Get them seen to.

No papers.

That's not a problem. See that street?

At the end of it, there's a square.

On the square,

there's a health centre and it's free.

They won't ask for your papers.

You can go when you want.

And do a test too.

Just to be sure.

I know, but just in case.

You'll go?

You never sleep here.

I can't.

Why not?

Your friends? You mean the gang?

You told them you come here?

See you.

Can you bring the glasses?

- I can stay here tonight.

- Really?

- Tonight?

- Yes. All night.

That's great.


Not now.

We're eating now.

We're eating. Don't touch.
