Loving strangers

Oh, oh

Loving strangers

Oh, oh

Loving strangers

Love, your love

Loving strangers

Oh, oh, oh


- Yeah.

- I know you're a good person.

So how long are you staying in Rome?

I fly back to Moscow tomorrow.

What a coincidence! So do I.

- You fly to Moscow?

- Back to Spain.

- This is my hotel.

- Mine is down there on the left.

- So, this is closer.

- For you, yes.

- For you too.

- No.

Come on. Please, just a little

stop, to drink the last one.

We drank plenty in the bar.

Mm, yes, but we only talked about

Russia and Spain, not about us.

I prefer not to talk about us.

It's a deal.

- What is?

- We don't talk.

We can stay without talking, you know?

And even better.

See, that's my room.

It's got two flags.

Must be a reason, no?

Yes, one for Europe and one for Rome.

I'm talking about

what's in the middle.

- The middle flag is missing.

- Uh-huh, exactly.

That's because of you.

You have to come up and hang it there.

- And what do I hang there?

- I don't know.

Your clothes, for example.

You are long enough.

Hm. Come on.

I've never gone up to a woman's room.

It's just a hotel room in Rome.

If you keep pulling, youll win

and well end up in your hotel.

You choose.

- Drink?

- Wine.


Sorry, what was your name?

I told you twice already.

Maybe at the third time I get it.



Was that the name you said before?

But you are not saying it right.

It's Nata-sha.


- Sha.

- Sha.

Mm. And you are Alba, which

is Spanish for dawn.

That's my big moment. You'll see.

Tonight is the first

night of the summer.

Ah, yes, that's right, in Europe.

In Russia, summer has already

begun, the first of June.

Really? Do you have summer in Russia?

Of course. Well, it's Russian summer.


And this is my last night in Rome.

Mine too.

You're not on your own, little Russian.

You know for sure this is

the shortest night of the year,

here and in Russia, so we

have to make the most of it.

I'm not...

- I'm not a...

- What?

Come on, you're a woman,

and...and Im a woman

and we were drinking alone at a bar

and we exchanged looks

and felt attracted to one another.

Isn't that how it works?

It's the first time in my life

I look like this at a woman.


Never before a woman looked at me this way.

It's not the first time

you look at a woman like this.

But every woman is different.

Would you like to see me naked?

Mm-hm. I would love to.


Wherever you like.

Do you prefer inside?

- Yes.

- OK, let's go inside then.

I think it'll work better

if you undress me.


It's OK.

Shh. It's OK.

It's OK.

We'll stay like this, close but

not touching, while you relax.


It's better if you're asleep.

That way we don't have to say goodbye.

You're right.

I'll say a few words.

Goodbye, Alba.

I don't want to imagine

what might have happened.

This secret will stay

there, sleeping with you.

Thank you, Alba.


Who changed my ring tone?

What the hell happened?

- Who is it?

- Natasha

Natasha, right.

I think Ive left my mobile

in your room.

- Did you hear it ringing?

- Yes, it woke me up, actually.


It must have fallen out of my bag.

I'm very tired and I

want to go to my hotel.

Come in and take it.

It's waiting for you under the bed.

I'd rather not coma in again.

Why? What happened?

Nothing. Nothing, actually.

Nothing we have to regret.

- Why did you chew up my panties?

- I didn't chew anything.

See the state you left them in.

Good evening.

Good evening.

How thoughtful, Natasha!

I wasn't expecting this.
