Love ?

Will we?

I was probably the worst bed partner

of five continents

All my life,

so stupid

thought that sex

seem to mind the man who desperately wanted

and thought to deprive it was like depriving


a selfish act.

And all that bread

not worth a damn in hell.

What I've always intesado about life

is what happens abroad


and that... that was something to share.

I have always felt more at home

in the most difficult places

but love?

'm A war correspondent.

Of course there are wars

and wars...

Here we go

Strip. Look at that!

He is desperate motherf***er...

Yes, but you are also a bastard

. Hard.

It's something that no...

Good heavens

Let Papa! Hard.

Everything dies.

It was by chance that I met

I was in Kay West on a family trip

after my father died

There was a bar called Sloppy Joe's

I remember thinking the first time I saw it:

Who is the tall, dirty

with that disgusting filthy clothes?

My D-s, it is Ernest Hemingway!

Pope anoints the beast.

No, that seems a homeless man.

Skynny, another drink.

Do not look now dad, something approaching

. Oh.

Hello, all right? I've never kissed a fish.

Tradition of Sloppy Joe's.

Friend or foe?

false friend, you never know.

Is discovered in time.

Y elegance what's your name?

Gellhorn Matha

Well Gellhorn. A game is not fun if

only going in your direction.

But I'm not one of your animals


I can see that you're not.

Just try to guess what the hell you are.

If we go out for drinks

have to fight with your husband?


He is my brother and she is my mother.

In that case I hope you're thirsty.

You want to tell them to come?

Everyone says you're blonde?

Hard to believe indeed.

Know the song?

I'm Italian and I know the song.

What's been said that voice?

And you do, sophisticated?

Do I do?

I have been knowing the world.

And how is the world?

Is a surprising place sometimes.

This is mine?


That poison that Ron.

Here not drink to get drunk,

but to keep drunk.

The clientele here scares you?

If I scared? No.

Just back from Berlin.

The Nazis... yes those are scary.

They are like little stinky running with lugers.

Very bad company for a young froline.

Blondes have free pass in the motherland.

And do well so I read

. So health!

As America's plush bed of potatoes.

Do not be naive.

Many people are hungry.

Sound like Eleanor Roosevelt.

Believe me, I'm not as Eleanor Roosevelt.

I know that woman of a lifetime.

Sure. Listen to the review.


To see Gellhorn. All

writer retains a review.

You blame Mrs. Roosevelt,

She encouraged me to write.

Is titled "The problems I have seen."

The problems you've seen?

Aja. Which were?

What did Dad at the country club?

No. I've seen problems.

I did not say they were my own.

Walked the nation, lived in camps

enough clothes...

The book seems to be armed not with words but with

the very fabric of human

Who is that Martha Gellhorn? His writing burns.

Hemingway himself not write more authentically.


As always understood it all wrong,

and compare myself with you is ridiculous.

All I did was listen

. Is your dialogue.

The trick is to write as people speak

. Most ever heard.

Wanted to cover terrible lives...

... And ended up being glamorous in

the cover of Saturday Review.

I have the same problem.

It's time to go.

I owe you?


you could say I'm the owner of the bar

Pope, now we're really behind.

All right, I'm going.

Buy a new shirt Hemingway.

Nice to meet you.


Fast pope. Pauline will be furious.

Who is Pauline?

I can help?

This is the house of Mr. Hemingway?
