Hotel Chevalier

Synopsis: Grief? Depression? Ambiguity in a Paris hotel room. Jack Whitman lies on a bed, ordering a grilled cheese sandwich from room service. His phone rings; it's a woman on her way to see him, a surprise. He readies the room, moving without affect, drawing a bath, changing his clothes. She arrives, as does the food, and the complications of their relationship emerge in bits and pieces. He invites her out on the balcony to see his view. Will they make love? Is the relationship over?
Genre: Drama, Romance, Short

I'm on my way from the airport, and the front desk won't get me your room number.

What's your room number?

See you in half an hour

- Wait a second. -What?

- Where are you? -I'm here.

I didn't say you could come here.

Can I come there?


I'll see you in half an hour.

What's this music?

How did you find me?

It wasn't actually that hard.

Are you going to take a bath?

It's for you.

What got you here?

Bar in the lobby

What the f*** is going on?

How long have you been at this hotel now?

I don't know.

More than a week?

More than a week

More than a month?

More than a month.

How much does it cost?

I think around 750 million euros or something.

How long are you gonna stay?

How long do you wanna stay?

I'm leaving tomorrow morning.

I think it's time for you to go home.


Are you running away from me?

I thought I already did.

Would you get me a bloody mary?

Two bloody maries, please.

Have you slept with anyone?

No. Have you?


That was a long pause.

-I guess it doesn't really matter.- No,it doesn't.

You got bruises on your body.

What ever happens, man, I don't wanna lose you as my friend.

I promise, I will never be your friend.

No matter what...ever.

We f*** and I will feel like sh*t tomorrow.

That's ok with me.

I love you.

I never hurt you on purpose.

I don't care.

Wanna see my view of Paris?
