North Sea Texas

Synopsis: Pim, the emotionally abandoned and affection-starved young gay son of a small seaside town's resident floozy, grows up dreaming intensely of a loving father who will someday come for him, but never does. Frequently home alone, Pim often spends time at a neighbor's house where another single mom and her two teenage children accept him matter-of-factly. As Pim is about to turn 15, he and neighbor boy Gino become each other's friend-with-benefits, entering a period of sexual awakening together. Life, however, is all about change, and while Gino (a couple years older) is ready to move on and move out, Pim is not, leaving Pim behind to carry on with his continuing crush for Gino (while Gino's sister Sabrina develops an unrequited crush for Pim).

"North Sea, Texas"

It is...



A, b, c, d, e, f, g,

h, i, j, k, l, m, n, o...

Open your eyes.

Put it on the chair, Marie.

And help me undress.

Lily of the valley.

Thanks, Marie, you can go.

What are you doing in my room?

Hey, Pim...

Come down, you fool. Mama's not angry.

Look what I found, kids. A little boy.

Hush, it's over now.

Get Pim a glass of water, you fool.

It's ok.

Here you go, sir.

You smell good.

- You smell really nice.

- It's uh, fragrance of Yvette.

It's time to go home, now.

But the puzzle's not finished yet.

Your mother doesn't care about that.

I don't want her...

Just one more bike.


Bye, Pim.


Hi, Mirza.

Here. That's pretty good.

"My left hand is the maid"

You'll see when I turn eighteen.

It'll be a shiny motorbike

instead of a bicycle.


Look. A Suzuki 380 GT.

- You can ride on it.

- Me?

It's hot.

Pim, just imagine. 380cc.

When you turn fifteen,

you can have my bike.

For your birthday.

Thanks, Gino.


Pimmie. You bastard.

The door.

The bell's ringing.

For you. From me.

A boy needs a knife.


Wasn't yesterday your birthday?

It's tomorrow. Fifteen.

- Is that you, tienne?

- Yvette.

Here. It's yours.

A boy needs a knife.

What do you say?

"Thank you, tienne."

Nice dog.

Have a can of sardines later.

- I will.

- Yes, thanks.

Behave yourself. Lock the doors.

You're a big boy.

We'll be back tomorrow.

So do you like it?

Your knife?

Thanks a lot, tienne.

It's me.

Hello, "me".

You want a glass of lemonade, Pim?

The latest news.

The latest news of the

day before yesterday.

Your boss is taking my mother to Lille,

to the Accordion Festival.

They're staying at a hotel.

When you tempt the devil...

My mother doesn't like this fat guy.

She's only interested in his car.

Silence is golden, Pim.

That's why we're so rich.

Mom, can Pim can sleep over?

Can he?

Of course. It's not good to sleep

alone at night in an empty house.

You can sleep in my bed.

It's summer. We'll sleep out in

the dunes. In a tent, Pim and me.

A gift from my mother.

From my boss.

Not bad.

Now we both have a knife.

It's my birthday tomorrow.

That's why.

No one needs to know about this,

Pimmie. It's just between us.

- Hip hip hip.

- Cheer.

- Hip hip hip.

- Cheer.

For your birthday.

Pencils. Thanks, Sabrina.

I didn't have 4B yet.





Could you sleep in the tent?

We should do it more often.

Mom made fries, can you believe it?

Of course, like always.

Can Pim come to Aunt Ginette's?

No, he cannot.

Right. It's a different

audience, those French.

I'm going to lie down.

No kiss from you, either?

You're making fries? I could...

When I learn the steps, I'll show you.

- Pim?

- Yes?


I use a glue stick. It's cleaner.

The bike!

- Beauty and the Beast.

- Watch what you say, man.

What are you thinking?

You forgot the tent.

- Well?

- Wait.

Here. Happy birthday.


- It's me.

- Hi, "me".

- You want a glass of lemonade, Pim?

- We gotta roll, Pim and me.

- Not on the highway.

- Ok, mom.

- Come on.

- Already?

- I gotta go.

- Where?

La Panne.

- Can I come?

- No.

- Why not?

- Because.

Not together?

- We'll go together next time.

- Promise?

Of course. Come on.

Not a word to anyone, ok?

- Back already?

- Yeah. Gino's bike had a breakdown.

- tienne, couldn't you...

- Of course, what's the problem?

Oh, well, it's the carburetor.

The carburetor? We'll just

change it. I'll take a look.

- Is Gino at home?

- Yes... Uh, no.

It's not necessary. Don't go.

- It's no problem...
