She started coming around more often.

At nights,

just before I was going to bed.

- She told me how much she loved...

- Silence.

- She went on and on about...

- The wonderful silence,

that can be shared by two people.

Can you hear it?

The silence?

She just sat there.

Talking endlessly,

about the sensitivity a human being

is capable of showing another.

- Harmony!

- She talked about harmony.

But she was talking so fast.

- Balance.

- I rarely dared to ask "Pardon?"

I just nodded,

pretending to listen.

''That's right,'' I said.

''Yes, of course.''

She started coming more often.

- After one of her talks about...

- Silence.

...she started talking

about her father.

- Our relationship was never good.

- She had a lot to say about him.

I must have fallen asleep.

But woke up in time for

a significant childhood memory.

Finally I had a response.

That's the worst thing I've heard!

- What?

- You must confront him.

You're a grown woman.

Confront him. He's your father!

I think you should contact him

immediately. Tomorrow.

What are you waiting for?

I had involved myself.

In her life.



- Were you waiting for me?

- Romantic, isn't it?

Come, let's go see a film.


We saw a film.

It was terrible.

Especially the ending.

I cried and wanted to go home.

You have no idea

how happy that film made me!

- Happy?

- Yes. Especially the ending.

- He jumped off a mountain.

- He grew wings and flew!

You didn't see him

plunging to his death?

No. He flew to the skies

to thank humankind for his life.

- Listen, we saw him fall.

- At first, yes. But then he ascended.

How do you know?

I just know it.


Come on!

I started going to the public bath.

It seemed the only sensible thing.

I got a 12 month membership.

A nice card made of white plastic.

With my name on it.

- You're new here, right?

- Yes.


Come on!

When you have problems,

you solve them in the water.

Tell me about yours.

- She just started coming by.

- Is she pretty?


Nothing wrong with your head?

It has never been her and me.

You want to get rid of

someone you never had...?

Then you have to do two things:

Buy goggles.

You'll avoid getting your eyes red.

I know some good brands...

- And the other thing?

- The other?

- The other thing I had to do?

- Sleep with her.


Then you'll find out if she's worth it.

Marianne was almost always there

when I got home.

- Great you came!

- Marianne...

- I think...

- Your eyes are red.

- Yes, that's right.

- You know what? You need goggles.

- Yes, I do...

- I'll help you!

- There's no need.

- I want you to have the very best!

Come on, then.


Put on your goggles.


Put on your goggles.


- They will make you look hot.

- Cut it out.

They turn me on.

- Keep them on!

- I do have them on!

I know it might

seem a bit weird...

But you are important to me.

- Choose a hand.

- That one.

The other one?

- For me?

- Yes. Open it.


I had never done anything for her.

Don't think like that.

I'm happy with you in every way.

It occurred to me that I may be

an amateur when it comes to love.

I decided to fall

head over heels in love with her.

I would start first thing

in the morning.

We're here!

She moved in the next day.

With 1 2 boxes and a yellow dresser.


...here he is!

I've heard so much about you!

We're going to hug

sooner or later anyway, so...


I have exactly what you need.

Take this.

- Wow, what a nice stone.

- It's not a stone, it's a crystal.

What's it for?
