Genre: Thriller

I won't let anyone come

between us anymore...

I won't let anyone come

between us anymore...

Are they recording?




I don't believe the dream

I just had.

I was in a forest

running barefoot.

I was hurt, and I was being followed

by somebody.

The more I ran the more I felt him coming

closer. Who was the guy stalking you?

It wasn't a guy. It was me. That's the

weirdest part. It was me running after me.

Can't you have normal dreams

like everyone else? No.

Being like everyone else

is an awful bore!

We should not gone out last night.

I'm exhausted.

Take a rest. I'll wake you when

we get there. Yeah, very funny!

I'll drive, if you like.

Y'mean like last time? Oh come

on. It was late, and I felt tired.

Felt tired, huh?

You were dead drunk!

Well, it was your fault for dumping me for

three hours and disappearing with God knows who!

I hope at least that he was

worth it. I'll say! Unbelievable!

You're really a bitch.



Bad lay!


Cheap hooker!

Are there any cool places

to go in the country?

Well, there's a town hall

but that's about it.

Wow, if I had to live here all

year round I think I'd shoot myself.

It's another kind of rhythm.

It's different.

Besides, we didn't come here

to go partying. We're here to study.

Hey, we're not deaf!

Chill out Marie!

C'mon Hendrix, run!

Bang! Bang! Bang!

Tom, stop shouting for a minute.

You're giving me a headache!

How long do we have to

wait for Alex, huh?

She'll be here after

you've had your bath.

No, because Alex has never seen

this cowboy suit.

Tom, go and have your bath and then you can

put your cowboy suit back on again. Okay?

Bang, bang, bang!

Come on, Hendrix, bang, bang!

Good... more... more...

Watch the road!

You've still got

some makeup on, y'know.

Are you sure it's this way?

Of course I'm sure.

In fifty meters, you go right at the

corn field There it is. Turn right

and then go straight

for four kilometers.

You really know

your way around.

Nobody takes this road

except for tractors.

Four kilometers of this

and it's good-by car.

You can't act that way

whenever a guy tries to talk to you.

I don't act that way with everyone.

Come off it, Marie.

It's always the same story.


What's wrong?

I saw someone!

Hey, that's not funny, Alex! No, I'm

not kidding. I saw someone. I swear.

Stop screwing around like that

will you!

Alex, come back here, please!

Damn it!


If this is a joke

I'll make you regret it!

Alex, where are you?

Where are you?

I'll get you.

If you think you're being funny

you've got another think coming!



Stop, you bitch, and come back!

I'm sick of your little game!

Enough is enough!

God damn you!

What if I had left you out here?

Yeah, very funny!

You scared the hell out of me!

Here we are.

Okay, now I know why you

passed your exams so easily.

If you spend all weekends up here,

there's not much else to do except study!

Y'can't beat it for peace and quiet. You

can hear the train go by but that's it.

Easy Hendrix, easy.

How are you?

Hello dad.

Don't worry. He doesn't bite.

You talking about me or the dog?

Marie, this is my father. Pop, Marie.

Nice to meet you.

So, I finally see you in person

and not just in a photo.


You know, the one I took in Spain.

Yes, it's on the fireplace.

You were living here.

And this is Tom. Hi cowboy.

Hey, are you happy to see me,

partner? Of course, he's happy.

He has been waiting for you

all this evening.

And your mother's been worrying

all day.

It's Okay.

Mom always worries for nothing.
