Hello.

Have you ever thought about

a movie career?

No.

So would you want one?

No.

That's too bad, you have a great face.

You don't see faces

like yours every day.

That's a definite no?

You sure you don't want to

try an audition, something?

Something like what?

- Like an audition.

- No.

Come on, he's usually harmless.

All right, go on.

He's been skittish lately

because of the wolves.

He's been attacked so many times that...

I'm not sure he'd take on a wolf,

but he's a pain with hikers.

Are there lots of wolves around here?

I don't carry this to shoot rabbits.

It's a real headache, you know.

I don't doubt it.

No, you have no idea what it's like.

Would you mind if I say down for a bit?

No, I'm happy to see someone.

Have a seat.

What brings you to these parts?

I love this prairie.

And I'm interested in wolves, actually.

Interested how?

Like everyone. They scare and fascinate me.

But I'd like to see one.

Well, they're a pain in the ass.

And not just here.

I know, but we can't kill them all.

They won't disappear entirely.

But they need to taste lead,

they're not stupid.

They won't hunt deer or boar

if they can chow down on sheep.

Whereas, if they take a few bullets

from time to time...

Anyway, what do you care if there

are wolves here or anywhere

in France or in Europe?

You don't see them.

And you never will.

It's part of life,

even the vipers

I don't want them to disappear.

Are you sure you'd be bummed

if vipers disappeared?

No, I'm not sure.

You don't raise sheep for their own sake?

They eventually get slaughtered?

They're mainly for milk.

And when they can't give anymore?

You can't keep every lamb.

Some die from sickness.

The wolf can't kill too many.

But that makes a huge difference.

As long as you're compensated...

It's not so simple.

We have to find the remains for that.

And miscarried lambs and missing

ewes aren't covered.

Neither are lambs who die of fright.

Even for us, it's scary.

And even if we're covered,

we don't want to feed the wolves.

Who's he?

Leo, a friend.

Gimme a kiss?

Go on, he won't bite.

How was your day?

Enzo hurt Cassandra.

- That's not true, Cassandra!

- Leo, my dad.

Hello.

Hello.

I ran into her on the prairie.

We had a nice chat.

Shh. Shh.

Are you going home now?

I don't have one anymore.

Where do you live?

I have stuff everywhere.

With friends, with old neighbors.

I stay in hotels or camp out, depends.

If you have nowhere to go,

you can stay here.

Wait!

Want to try?

Give him a break.

Can you pick me up, please?

Yes!

You kidding?

If he was younger, he'd just quit.

It's too hard with the wolves.

But at 50, what can he do?

Gradually, that's what'll happen.

The shepherds will all quit.

The sheep will be raised indoors,

and you'll all be happy.

- Stop, no one wants that.

- It's what'll happen.

And wolves didn't cause this mess.

They sure didn't help.

I only came back because

I had nowhere else to go.

My dad needs a helping hand,

but I don't want to be a shepherd forever.

Hear that?

Hello.

Thanks.

- Have a good one.

- You too.

1. Ext. A Long Straight Road - Day

Leny is at the wheel of his car.

No, that's not really it.

Anyway, it won't stop me

from coming to see you.

But I'm on a roll, so...

You know ...

I don't want to break my stride.

Not yet, but I'll probably

send you something in two weeks.

It won't be finished, but pretty close.

I don't know.

No rush, but could you wire...

say next week...

I dunno, 5,000?

3,000?

Great, thanks.

And I promise

I'll send it in 2 or 3 weeks, OK?

OK, great. Take care.
