Larry, my bow Are you back?

I came to see you,

only for a few days.

You've ripened.

You're a man now.

You haven't changed a bit.

Countryside becomes you, obviously.

I've grown old...

No use lying.

Who is she?

The latest?


You had to wait for 4 years to come

and see your old father again, did you?

Let's not remember

the old days anymore.


Just a sec.

Julia. I have a surprise for you.

Walt here.

We'll be right with you.

- Julia, this is Larry.

- Hello.


Alexis has told me so much about you.

He must be terribly fond of you.

Children of mine.

Don't start all over again, father.

I won't stay. Don't insist.

I'm going next week.

Some friends are coming from Rome,

we'll visit the islands.

Why won't you stay here?

Your friends, too.

Not possible.

You won't find a better spot than here.

Larry, I need you.

I want you to spend all summer with us.

Would give me real pleasure.

Julia wants it, too.

Isn't it so, Julia?

I don't need tell him that.

The house is his.

I'll get the fruit, now.

How do you manage with her?

A man of Imagination manages


Even in his old age.

You play the guitar, Larry?

I learned to play a little in Rome.

Me and my friends meet now and then

and make up tunes, for the fun of it.

Let's hear you play, then.

Come on, Larry.

Come, so.

One of your tunes.

Alexis, I'll dance.

I haven't danced for so long.

Let me watch you and enjoy.

Nice, nice.

Bravo, Julia.

Bravo, Larry.

That's a glorious night.

Very nice.

Alexis, come.

Why stop so soon?

That's not for me anymore...

That's for you, youngsters.

Oh, I'm getting tired...

Well done, Julia.

You were marvelous.

You can't get any sleep, either.

What's the matter?

- Nothing.

- What's wrong?

- Nothing. Want some?

- No.

- Alexis, may I ask you something?

- Whatever you like.

Why do you insist on him staying?

Does it bother you?

You know I have a soft spot for him.

So you'd like him to stay

with us for good?

Right, Alexis? Tell me.

Thanks, Julia.

I love you very much.

Today I have a darned

penchant for work.

This means you're back in form.

- Is Larry up yet?

- No, and it looks like he won't be...

Breakfast is ready.

I'm sleepy-

If you wake up and feel like It,

we'll be working at the shore.


If I decide to cheat on you, then

I'll abandon you and go.

But you will never do that...

Will you?

I don't see why you're

bringing this up.


What fear?

Fear of the impending end.

Of death.

Of annihilation.

What is this nonsense you're talking?

I've started getting senile, Julia.

I cannot lay with you In a way

worth your while.

I cannot do a painting.

I've grown worse than a dauber.

Larry must be alone.

You'd better go back

and prepare some lunch.

We'll go back together.

You go ahead, I'll come later on.

When the sun gets vertical

it is reflected on the sea and causes...

Those fascinating blue-ray


So, let me marvel at them...

Since I cannot reproduce them...

Larry would leave because he surely

felt contempt towards me.

He's been feeling that for years now.

He despised me in his own way

never giving me a chance

for atonement.

He despised me for

his mother's death.

He despised me for that

damned night after her funeral

when he saw me In Nora's arms,

she was one of my models

and that night was never to be erased

from his memory.

He never accepted an excuse or

an explanation.

He chose to live with his grandma

in Rome

in his mother's family house.

The more time he spent away from me

and the more he wanted to leave,
