That's how it always ends.

A bit of magic, a bit of smoke.

Something floating.

But it doesn't work

without the necessary push.

A bit of laughter, a man...

a beautiful woman

and love.

Let's start over.

AT the beginning, it was man alone.

No, he's not alone.


That's the first step.

The man.

Laughter comes next.

Woman. Love.

Look at him.

We can start like that, although

this ain't how it starts.

That's why you must be quiet. It's

important, you must believe me.

The man goes into a bar.

He sees the beautiful woman.

Do they know each other?

They don't seem to know each other,


it's like the recognize the one another

Who knows who?

Is that the beginning or the end?

This is what we're about to see.

It's the beginning and the end.

Love and goodbye.

I know I don't need to mention it, but

I'm doing it.

Remember, everything is just

a movie. A creation.

It hurts anyway.


Will you come?

Yes, to Rome.

The plane leaves soon.

We must hurry.

- What are you going to do?

- I don't have much time.

- Alex.

- Amy...

- Like that French girl?

- Yes, you know her?

- Maybe, we should go to Paris?

- I don't think so.

- Maybe we should wait a little.

- Yes, I agree.

- May I get you something

- I cup of coffee please.

Aren't you hungry? Anything else?

Two coffees please.

Excuse me, what exactly is it,

that you want?

I just want to go to Rome.

I guess... Thanks.

I guess it's a still early. We must get

to know each other a bit better.

Yes, I agree.

I just know that you are

too beautiful. If I am allowed to say that.

Yes, you're allowed.

That's all you know?

All I know is that if you're my dream,

then I am yours.

What do you want?

- I wanna say goodbye.

- You wanna say goodbye now?

No. First I

must come inside.

Then, I must sit in a table, or in

the bar somewhere. It doesn't matter.

I'm with a beautiful woman.

I order something to drink.

I cup of coffee maybe.

I drink it.

I look her in the eyes. Then,

I tell her that I love her.

She looks back at me and laughs.

She doesn't know me, that's for sure,

but I remind her of something.


That's not how I was suppose to leave.

Well, I suppose I should.

She looks at me.

She waits.

The night keeps going. She

realizes that I'm not lying.

I really love her.

And that's it. That exact moment

is the moment when I say "Goodbye"

The time has come.

Let's start over.

It's not that complicated.

There are four people.

There's Amy and

me, August.

We're married.

There's also Alex, the photographer

and his girlfriend, Simon.

They' re not married.

Alex and Amy will get to know each

other. Not yet, Soon enough.

All of them are looking for love...

Poor kids...

It will be a great battle.

May the battle begin.


It's very nice, ain't it?

Very nice.

It's from Monica. She

wants to go down for a drink.

- Are you listening to me?

- Yes, she wants us down for a drink.

- Now?

- Yes. You want to?

I'm tired.

I wanted to chat a bit with you.

I'll go and you'll miss me tonight.

But, I have


- Yes, but for just one drink.

- I'll paint. You go.

Are you sure?


I thought my whole life story.

I know how they're gonna meet each other.

I'll tell you tomorrow.

You sure you ain't coming?

- I love you.

- Me too.

- Will you take a suitcase?

- No, I have everything I need here.

We'll talk again tomorrow.

How are things going?

At home. In your life, love...

Ain't that what we usually ask?

Everything is fine.

- You?

- Fine also.

- That's good.

- Yes, quite good.

What would make you
