This is the place.

Here are all the files.

You must note down

the listeners' problems.


Ask for their number,

age, pseudonym.

Generally they take on a pseudonym.

Then Mlina and I choose.

That way we don't have 4 people

talking about premature ejaculation.

They're also part of the crew.

The aging Romeo's Andr.

He's the producer.

Next to him's Bertrand,

the sound engineer.

Is Mlina here?

She comes a few minutes

before the show.

Before, she's in her dressing room.

Careful, naturally

don't take any photos.

She doesn't want

her picture spread around.

Yes, I know.

She won't allow it.

I'm anxious to see her.

She must be wonderful.

I'll tell you more later.

Good evening everyone.

This is Mlina

for "Frank Talk with You".

I'm all yours for two hours,

to listen to your secrets.

We're here to take your calls

at 3712 until 10 p.m.,

or on our Internet site


I'll take our first caller,

Lucie. Lucie from Lorient.

Good evening, Lucie.

How old are you?

I'm 13 years old.

I'm listening.

I'm calling because I...

I'm 5'8".

Goodness, 5'8" is really tall.


Is that why you're calling?


Being 5'8",

you must already look like a woman.

Because boys, even men,

stare at me all the time

and hit on me.

It's a bit early, isn't it?


How do you feel about that?

I'm not into it,

but my friend says I'm a fool,

I could date the cutest guys

at school.

And the boys in 9th grade,

when I say no,

either tell me I'm a child

or a coward.

They try to touch me.

You want to go out with them?

I don't know. No.

You don't know

if you want to or not?

You should follow your feelings.

- Understand?

- Yes.

You may look like a woman,

but you needn't behave like one.

Remember you're 13.


If you don't want

to date 9th graders,

let them have 9th grade girls.

And you date boys your age.

What do you think?


Thanks, Mlina.

Bye, Lucie.

Feel free to call again.


Here's this week's mail.

Still sure

you don't want it delivered?

Are you OK, big boy?

Did you have a nice evening?

You didn't like me? What did I say?

Yes, you did.

My treasure.

On Wednesday, Mrs. Gregorchk

will do the cleaning.

Be nice to her. She's great.

Shall we have a cigarette?

Snowball, are you coming?

Snowball, come.

It's so beautiful.

Come on. Let's go in.

Yes, hello?

Yes, it's me.

Are you sure this time?

Walter Agency

Investigation and Inquiries

Hello, Madam.

There's an envelope for me:

Claire Martin.


Thank you.

Identity Search

Following your request, find below:


Montmirail, Marne. Divorced.

Age 66, residing 35 rue des Pinsons,


Turn left.

You've reached your destination.

I see you're 60.

You've got a life ahead of you.

You can still

have a fulfilling sex life.

So I'll pack his bags.

You can meet a young lover.

It's not just movie stars

who meet guys 25 years younger.

Not too young.

Then someone your age: 60.

You can travel, have a ball...

screw all day.

Sure, why not?

Yeah, I'd like that.

No need to suffer.

That's a good idea. I'll do it.

Don't put up with that situation.

Emancipate yourself.

Thanks, Mlina.

Goodbye, Josiane.

Bye, thanks.

Now we're talking to Aline,

from Verdon.

Good evening, Aline.

Good evening, Mlina.


I'm calling because my ex

left me a year and a half ago.


Sometimes we meet

for a cup of coffee.

I think we can

start something serious again.

I'd like to get back together

with him...

Go to bed with him,

but I dare not say it.

So after your love affair,
