La doublure

Genre: Comedy, Short
Director(s): Camille de Morlhon

THE VALE You like it?

Yes and no.

Well built, but a bit boring.

I soon tire of my cars.

Same here. It's a nice toy,

but I like changes, too.


I'm due at my parents.

- See you tonight.

- Later.

It's me!

I got the doctor for your dad,

he's not well.

What's wrong?

He felt faint.

Your dad's taking care of him.

And Dad?

A touch of bronchitis.

I'm worried about the doctor.

I gave him my bed.

- You OK, Doctor?

- It hurts here.

That's the heart.

I know! I've practiced medicine

for 40 years!

I'll get a doctor, Doc.

I'm a doctor!

You're also unwell.

All doctors are quacks!



OK, the heartbeat's steady.

- Ouff!

- This?

Pressure's not too bad. I'm off.

- Shall I drive you back?

- My daughter'll pick me up.

I'll call her.

- What do I owe you, Doctor?

- 30 Euros.

- She's so cute.

- We're lunching tomorrow.

- You bought the ring?

- I pick it up later.

It'll be a great wedding.


You OK, Dad?


Let go! I can walk by myself!


Excuse me.

I'll take you home.

No, I have another patient to see.

I'll rest there.

Shouldn't you change doctors?

I'm keeping this one.

He's in such bad shape,

he makes me feel better.

And he forgets everything!

- And the girl?

- Very cute.

- Tomorrow's the day.

- For what?

He's proposing.

You know what I think.

It'll go fine.

She's pretty,

has a good job, independent.

- But he, poor kid...

- He's kind, handsome...


I'm sure he can get any girl he wants.

Don't be too sure.

He'll find a girl some day,

but not her.

He's aiming too high: a mistake.

Look at me, I took what I found.

How was that?

- How much?

- They got a lay-away plan.

When you get married, go there.

110 Euros a month, for a year.

I'll never get married!

110 Euros times 12,

that's 1300 Euros!

1300 Euros for a ring,

they're screwing you!

Get ready to move out.

I've got time.

She's not moving in now?

We're lunching tomorrow:

if she accepts...

- I've warned my mom.

- Good.

No, it's back to a broom closet,

with an old lush!

She's your mom, be respectful.

I am, but she lives in a cesspool,

drinks like a fish.

I liked it here.

Sorry, I'm in love.

If she says yes...

Right, she may say no.

Yeah, she just might. I'm not out yet!

Levasseur pays 15 billion

for Cosmetix

That's not the price of the buy-out!

It's nonsense.

Oorrect it at once.

We agreed on 10 billion,

they announce 15.

It may cause problems

before we close.

I'll do it today, dear.

Are you lunching at home?

No, with the financial press.

I'll fill them in.

Have a nice day, dear.

See you tonight.

Thanks. Bye.

Look, here's your boyfriend.

Oome in. Why's he staying outside?

Don't be shy:
it's a book shop,

not a sex shop.

Out it out!

See you later.

We'll have to eat fast.

Really? I booked in a nice place.

Not today. I've got lots to do.

Luigi's is fine.

I felt like a change.


What is it?

Open it.


- What is it?

- Open it.

- For me?

- Try it on.

- You want to marry me?

- Yeah.


I love you.

Remember, in kindergarten

I already said:
"I want to marry you. "

That was kid's stuff.

We've grown up since then.

I don't want to get married.

And not to you.

I mean... you're like my kid brother.

I love you.

Stop it, we're friends,

I like you a lot too.

Stop mooning, I don't want to hurt you.

I've got business problems to solve.

It's no time for romance.

Starting this bookstore,

means I owe a lot to the bank.

That's enough on my plate, right?

- How much do you owe?

- A lot!

Oan't your dad help?

He faints on the few patients
