You're back?

Sorry, I...

You should've called,

I'd have come to get you.

Staying for dinner?

Any news from the police?

They say

the investigation's ongoing,

that it's normal for it to take time.


So you think it's normal now?

They've contacted the French police,

who are going to cooperate.

We have to be patient.

It was an accident, Diane.

May I?

You wouldn't have asked,

in any case.

Does it still work?

I should've cancelled

the contract months ago.

I just can't.

I tried to call you

I don't know how many times.

- You just disappeared...

- I was away.

Heard anything new from the police?

- You know it was a woman driving?

- What?

A blonde.

There were two of them in the car,

but the woman was driving.

The man was in the passenger seat.

I went to see the bus driver,

the main witness.

He said the car was big,

like a BMW or a Mercedes.

He wasn't too sure about the

colour, said it was brown-ish.

That's all?

He said it had twin headlights.

It wasn't easy,

but I found four cars

between Lugrin and Evian.

They're not really brown,

but similar, coffee-coloured.

I need to check them out.

No, that's not necessary.

It's not proof.

It's just a few leads.

And what do you think of them?

I think to be sure,

we need to find the car.



Is it yours?

No, I was just looking.

Hello, I was calling about the car

for sale. I'll call back.

I'm just asking you to go and see

the bus guy and show him the photos.

That's right.

Call me back

when you've spoken to him.




Are you looking for anything

in particular?

No, no. I was looking

at moisturising creams.

It's for the circles under my eyes.

Exhaustion? Follow me.

You should try this.

It's made with Japanese algae.

We can't boycott them

over Fukushima, can we?

Do you do make-up?

Of course.

Is it for a special occasion?

I just feel like a change.

Well, it's for a wedding.

But I'd like to try it out first.

I'm all yours.

Where are you from?

You don't look familiar.

- I'm Swiss.

- Are you staying here for a few days?

I don't know yet.

And what do you do?

In terms of work?

I'm writing a book.

I'm a writer.


What kind of books do you write?

Love stories?

And you?


Do you ever go to Lausanne?

It's the Swiss who come here.

They buy their meat here,

where it's cheaper.

Have you worked here long?

I started when I was 19.

My boss retired in '89.

I took out a loan

and bought her out.

And I worked like mad.

I'm a self-made woman.

You're pretty unusual.

Why do you say that?

Because usually I'm the one

who does the listening.

That little idiot...

Be right back.


Where's my lipstick brush?

Wednesday 25th March.

Is there a problem?

I suddenly got cramp.

Not bad, huh?

I've still got a bit of blusher to apply.

Don't you like it?

It's... it's perfect.

If you don't like it,

we can try something else.

No, no, it's fine.

But I have to go.

I'll pay the bill now.

Is this your car?


Was it you who called?

Sorry, it's sold.

I'm sorry to be so insistent.

How much were you offered?

A little less than the asking price.

I might be able to offer more.

It's a fine car.

How old is it?

It's an SL, 1972.

A pretty rare model.

Can I try it out?

- Now?

- Unless it's inconvenient.

You're right.

You have to test-drive a car!

You OK?

You put it in D,

and it moves forward automatically.

Do you work at the Spa?

I give fitness lessons.

Anything related to well-being.

So what do you think?

Not bad, huh?

It might not seem much,

but it's powerful.
