Great news! My parents

are coming tomorrow.

They'd be honored to meet you.

I'm nervous.

It wasn't easy. They haven't left

their estate since 1936...

...Only for you.

- You're too nice.

Please order something for me

separately, anything you like...

It always takes 3 hours

to serve you.

Have you already told Aldo?

No, not yet.

It's going to be difficult.

- It takes two in our business,

you know. - It's one more reason...

We can't wait until our wedding

to tell him that he can't count on you

for this tour. It would be dishonest.

You're right, Bernard.

I'll talk to him tonight.


I'm making this new stuff for you.

It's more supple. Try it.

- Aldo, I want to tell you something.

- Try this first.

If it suits you I'll make 3 or 4.

Did you think about

finding my replacement?


Why? Are you sick?

- No, I quit. That's all.

- It's impossible.

- There are 20 girls in Paris

capable of what I'm doing. - No!

Don't dwell on it.

We've spent over a year

on that number.

In two weeks you won't be able

to tell if it's me or not.

Quit the nonsense!

The Giovanni's means the two of us

and nobody else!

You had other partners before me.

You want to get rid of me.

It simply suits you.

Nothing is simple, do you hear me?

Maybe for you but not for me.

I know.

Everything's complicated,

especially in a separation.

I'd like you to understand.

At least, let's remain friends.

Help me. Please, Aldo, please.

All right. Your new partner is waiting.

Always keep them waiting. Bye!

You knew that I'd get married some day.

It was bound to happen.

When Bernard came to see me 3 or 4 times

and then every night

you thought it was for nothing?

Did you get any ideas? - Yes.

But I thought, at least, we can work

together. And now even that is gone.

Aldo, when Bernard just started to

seeing me regularly,

one night, he came to see me

at "Caf d'en face."

I thought that you were going

to talk to me then,

I thought about Bernard coming in

too late.

It wasn't at the caf, it was at

"Tabac des Artistes."

You see? You know exactly what

day I'm talking about.

Was I wrong that you were going

to talk to me?

- Aldo! - I didn't talk to you because

I didn't have the right.


What does it matter now?

But I want to know, I need it.

When one killed a man, the only thing

left is to keep quiet and stay alone.

What are you saying?

It's an old story and a sad one.

- You were...

- In prison? No.

It might have been better.

But they couldn't find anything.

How did you do it?

We were fighting... at night

on the waterfront in Rouen.

I didn't know what I was doing.

You can't understand. Even I can't now.

And then he fell,

he slipped into the water.

I didn't know what happened.

- Who was it?

- Some bastard.

I hate men who blackmail a woman.

That's it.

Do you understand now why I don't

have the right?

You see, you have nothing to regret.

You'll be much happier.

You'll miss your work at first.

But you'll have kids, a real apartment,

a husband, a nice life.


He didn't come?

Bernard was there.


- It was me who couldn't make it.

- Hlne!

If you want to leave, it has to be

right now! Do you hear me? Right now!

I don't want to leave anymore.

Is it because of what I told you?

You didn't tell me anything except that

you loved me, that's all.

I don't dare to touch you now.

What are you thinking of?

Nothing. And you?

I think that I never saw you smiling.

It's true. Even when was a kid

my mother said I never smiled.

And now?

Now you are here.

I'm happy here.

Happiness is a funny thing.
