The Mushroom

Kurt, come here.


It's beautiful, isn't it.

- Yeah, yeah...

Have you already seen

some of those around?


It looks like some sort

of hallucinogenic amanita.

Is it?

- You'll watch over this place.

- More are gonna grow, don't worry.

I never worry, anyhow.


I know.

What is it?

Maybe a friend.

No, honey...

You can't touch Balthazar.

It's a pretty name, isn't it?

- You come for a walk?

- No, my love.

Not now.


You've been fishing again!

Answer me!

You know it makes me feel sad.

I put them back to the water.

I swear.

They suffered for nothing.

Hello, darling.

Wait, I'm all wet.

- You're beautiful like this.

You think so?

I'm frightening myself.

I look like an old hag.

I heard you come back.

You probably didn't sleep much.

No, my lifestyle's too much.

And I have to be at

the office before 10.

I didn't hear you get up.

- I left at 7.

I had to see the boarding school's kids.

- Can you give me my comb.

In the box.


Stop it, I'm gonna be late!

I'll try to be back for dinner.

Mrs Combe.

Don't be afraid, honey,

the doctor won't hurt you.

Isn't it, doctor?

- Please be seated.

Say, big girl...

Hey, that's a nice dress you've got.

- The other day, Hlne slapped me.

- Who's Hlne?

She's my friend but she's naughty:

she slapped me.


don't bother the doctor.

She slapped you because

you did something wrong to her?

No, I did nothing.

So, you slapped her back.

No, I already slapped

her back, before!

Excuse me.


Mrs Benson.

No, I can't.

I have patients this morning.

Okay, I'll try to come

in the evening.

No, I can't now.

Excuse me.

You're listening

at the doors, now?

No, mummy,

I was going to my room.

You could had step in.

You know I've nothing

to conceal you.

Why were you calling

doctor Calder?

I've nothing to conceal you, angel,

but I hate when you ask questions.

What Dr Calder has done to you?


I'll see you later, honey.

Yollande, you call this one.

Darling, I can't come back.

I've plenty more appointments

and Ludovic is gonna

be shooting until late.

Come and meet us at 11 for dinner.

- The people from Air-Inter are waiting.

- Yes, I'm coming!


Please, do that for me.

We'll go at the Courthouse

to eat fondue.


See you later, darling.

You'll be one of the few men

for whom I opened this door.

I didn't choose to explore

the irrational.

I always lived a bit...

in a different world.

I try to express this world.

You maybe go

a bit too far sometimes.

Let's not make too much of it.

Be careful with

certain drugs, anyway.

I'm not afraid to die.

The day mirrors will reflect

a too unpleasant image...

How is your wife?

- Very well, thank you.

I sometimes see her driving

her new car.

She's making a lot of money, now.


Excuse me,

it's nothing of my concern.

We should never speak

about money.

Seat down.

She mostly has a lot of work.

Too much for you?


You're married since

at least three years, I think.

It will make three years in one week.

The 13th on august.


What a strange institution.


I think you've been married too?

It's not sure.

Gaetan is the fruit of a meeting with

a spirit evil enough to surprise me.

I anticipated this vogue

of single mothers.

I had a mother a bit single too.

My father died in 1940,

during the war.

It must have been

terrible for you.

I was very young.

I didn't understand.

My mother hold it against me

because I didn't cry.

But she also took comfort

very quickly.

She was right.

We don't make love
