Mom, where are my socks?

Have a look in the corner there.

Constantin called me a garden gnome.

What's a garden gnome?

An ugly little man

with a red T-shirt and baggy pants.

I don't want these pants!

Garden gnome!

We'll change them later.

We'll go faster like this.

Lead the way, Constantin.

Wait for me before you cross.

Okay, let's go.


I don't want to go to school.

You don't want

to go to school, sausage?

Even when we're apart,

we're still together.

- Where?

- In my heart.

You like to run?

I'll hold onto your rabbit.

I'm worried you'll lose it.

Say bye-bye to mommy

and in we go.





The lemon's for the hangover?

How about

a peaceful breakfast for once?

I simply asked a question.

No, it's not for the hangover.

I thought you preferred milk.

You're being aggressive.

I only asked

why you're using lemon in your tea.

That's not being aggressive.

I'm sick of you yelling at me.

And I'm sick of wasting my time

with a f***ing drunk!

Mademoiselle's getting

common again. Just listen to you.

What about when you're sloshed?

''Sloshed'', ''f***ing''...

The proles don't mince words.

My family's as good as yours.

And walking away is common too!

No, it's dignified.

People in our world don't yell.

ignity for you

and leave the others in their sh*t!

We're nothing but sh*t now.

You and me...

We have sh*t feelings,

sh*t words,

a sh*t relationship...

It's pathetic.

It's pitiful, it's shitty!

It's hopeless!

You're right.

I'm sorry.

We'll do as you want.

You're not working?

No, I want to listen to some music.

In the morning?

One of the speakers is dead.

You can't listen to music like that.

I think

I have a Walkman somewhere.



Yes, ust a second.

I see why my translation's so slow.

It's your mother.

Hello, Carole.

Hello, mom.

No, I'm fine.


We won't stay long.

We aren't even there yet.

Watch the light!

- It's our fauIt.

- What is?

They hit us when you braked.

It's all falling.

We can't stay here all night.

It's next week, okay.

I'm sure of that now.

I thought it was...

Jean told me he was in Kaakhstan

until last week.

Today's the 24th.

Or maybe he told me

he was changing hotels.

Come on, it doesn't matter.

Let's go home.

I wasn't too keen anyhow.

- Why don't we go dancing?

- What?

Just kidding.

You can go if you want.

I have no idea

where to drop you off.

I don't know either.

I'm not so sure.

- Yes, you are.

- No, I'm not!

Remember how I danced at home?

I liked that.

You don't do it anymore?

No. You hadn't noticed?

It's okay, they're asleep.

- Hello, Justine.

- Hello, Hubert.

Come in. It's a bit of a mess today.

I'm sorry.

What's going on?

Your twentieth?

No, we haven't been together

20 years yet.

- I meant yours.

- That's sweet of you.

Have a seat.

- It's our son's birthday.

- Which one?

Jeremy, he's six today.

How silly, if I'd known...

on't worry.

Would you like a coffee?

If you have some ready.

Even if I hadn't...

Okay, Hubert?

Hello, Richard.

Would you prefer to work

another day?

No, they want the script

this afternoon.

We have to finish.

This solves all our problems

with scene 24.


Excuse me...

The stereo's not working.

What are we going to do?

They don't need music.

They do, a little...

Let them look at books or watch TV.

on't worry.

I liked dancing when I was six.

I picked up a lot of girls that way

dancing to rock tunes.

If I catch you...

They're here.

I'll catch you.

I've caught you!

Something wrong?

Look at me.

Look into my eyes

and you'll see if I'm lying.

I don't prefer another man

to your daddy and that's the truth.

It's also true that daddy and mommy

aren't happy together anymore.

You know that. You can tell.
