THE PORTUGUESE NUN

A WOMAN ALONE:

Julie de Hauranne.

Your passport, please.

Miss de Hauranne,

are you with the film?

Yes, I'm an actress.

French people

rarely speak Portuguese.

My mother was Portuguese.

My father is French Basque.

So you know Lisbon?

No.

When I was little, we went to Porto.

Then my mother died.

I'll be discovering Lisbon.

One of your colleagues

is already here.

Yes. The director.

When do the other actors arrive?

There's only one.

The day after tomorrow, I think.

Only two actors?

I recorded the sound already, alone.

We're just filming images here.

You two don't speak to each other?

No.

And I'm never seen speaking.

So what did you record?

A 17th century French text,

that we only hear.

I never see French films.

They're for intellectuals.

Our films are popular in Portugal.

Only in Lisbon,

where there are many intellectuals.

No city is perfect.

I'll show you your room.

Thank you.

If you need something, dial 9.

I suppose this is your ball.

Yes, Madam.

Here you are.

Thanks, Madam.

Are you looking for someone?

I don't think so.

Are you alone?

Yes.

Me too.

What's your name?

Vasco.

I'm Julie.

How do you say it?

Ju-lie.

Madam Ju-lie.

Madam is very beautiful.

Good afternoon, Vasco.

Good afternoon, Madam.

If I'm alone

I don't want to be

If I'm not alone

I want to be

It seems I always want to be

What I am not

Happiness is being someone else

But that someone else is not happy

Because he follows his own mind

And not my designs

People do as they please

With what is only nothing

But regret if they don't do it

It lies abandoned on the road

Oh, Denis!

Yes, I'm here.

I'm out walking around.

Have dinner without me,

I want to explore.

A drink around midnight, perfect.

At the hotel bar, ok.

See you then.

If I loved you as much

as I've told you a thousand times,

wouldn't I be dead by now?

I've deceived you,

it is you who should be offended.

Miss?

Do you speak Portuguese?

Yes.

Isn't this square beautiful at night?

Yes.

It's beautiful in the daytime too,

but not the same.

I'll find out tomorrow.

Lisbon never shows us

the same face twice.

I haven't had a chance

to see that yet.

Where are you from?

Paris.

- Are you on holiday?

- No, I'm working.

Goodnight.

Here's my card.

My name is Enrique.

If I can do anything for you,

don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you.

Good evening, Denis. Excuse me.

For what?

I'm late.

Barely.

Did you enjoy your evening?

Yes.

Do you have friends in Lisbon?

Yes.

So you weren't alone tonight?

No.

Good.

When we recorded the text in Paris,

you didn't seem well.

I'd just separated from my boyfriend.

The one I knew?

You've known a few.

The actor?

Actors are my specialty.

The latest one, tall and dark.

He was short and blond. Alexandre.

I knew him, too.

He was nice.

Yes, he was nice.

I'm happy to be here to play

the Portuguese nun.

Do you think

you'd be happier if,

like her, you'd had only

one love in your life?

I wonder whether, in any life,

there is ever more than one love.

THE COUNT OF VISEU

There's sound,

but just a guide track.

Quiet on the set.

We're about to shoot.

Quiet, please.

Camera.

Roll sound.

Rolling.

Scene three, shot one, take one.

Action!

Cut.

Hello.

Good evening.

May I speak to Mr. Cunha Melho

de Lencastre, please?

Speaking.

This is Julie de Hauranne.

I don't believe I gave you my name.

We met at the restaurant last night.

I was just thinking of you.

Last night you were alone.

If you're alone tonight,

perhaps we could get acquainted.

I just made an appointment.
