A water fast! Hurry!

She is sinking!


Look at me one!

She knows how to swim

and it goes off.

Nothing surprises me, Tony.

Let's see if they revive him.

Tony, give him

something to drink.

- It can leave you?

- Yes, thank you.

You know

you had the chance?

It's true.

Drink, it will do you good.

- Give us a drink.

- There.

Where are your clothes?

The sea had to take them.

Give me another.

Thank you.

Tighten me the same thing.

I'll go,

Give me my lobster.

Hold. Good day.

You're leaving already?

- You scared?

- No, actually.

It was very beautiful.


Yes. Mostly

when they rescued me.

It was extraordinary.

I felt loved.

I felt.

Hi, Tony.

Goodbye, Mr. Dino.

If you do not report to me

my rug, I notify the police.


They told me you lived here.

Is your house?


Yes, I like it too.

These are my drawings!

You have the cast, remember.

They are mine now.

I remember you.

Tell me one thing.

What do you want exactly?

I come with you a moment?


Will you hold me this?

- You can?

- Yes.

- It's beautiful here.

- I'm not complaining.

My name is Nicole.

Are you French?

My mother is French.

Dad met her in Paris.

Very romantic.

Nicole how?

I know what your name.

Dino, Dino Romani.


You make comics?

Like Charlie Brown?

Charlie Brown is a character.

The designer is Schuz.

You're as famous as him?

But your drawings are beautiful.

It's true.

That is enough.


What do you want?

Do you make your blanket.

Is that all?

You do not want to make love?

I love making love.

Stay with me.

I love the hugs after.

You're thirsty?

I will be right back.


Who is she?


Beauty, Nicole.


But Beauty, thou hast no face?

It is being born.

Great body.

She has no taboos.

I would like it a bit

symbol of innocence.

Provocative, but not Knowledge.

Like me?

I said without Knowledge.

You think you see me clear?

It is not difficult.

You know

I pretended to drown,


I know very well swim.

And very well play the comedy.

You make me walk?

You do it to distract you.

I am testing.


One from drowning

like today.

Or I stretch out on the road,

as if I had been reversed.

Or I simulate a suicide

with a little soporific.

And if someone comes to save me,


I feel loved.

And I find my identity.

Your identity?


The world knows that I exist.

- Why this look?

- I wish she had your face.

Who? Beauty?

I want you ask me.

- Half an hour would suffice.

- Why not.

I have nothing to wear.

I have a wardrobe

full of women's clothes.

To your wife?

I am not married.

Tony had already told me.

I've asked him a lot of questions.

It is better to close the door.

I do not want to hurt you,

Excuse me.

What happens?

Excuse me.

Why did you want

close the door?

I want a man who loves me

also when I pee.

Who are these clothes?


Tony told me you lived alone.

- And you go soon.

- Tony talks too much.

Is it true you go?

Within a few weeks.

You do not like people, huh?

A small dose.

The fewer there are, the better.

Me, it's the opposite.

I hate loneliness.

Each his thing.


And you, where you live?

In an old villa

near San Justo.

There is a garden

with Greek columns.

And a big beautiful tree in front.

And an army of servants.

A cook

Butler and four good.

Well, you have to be wealthy.

I have everything I want.

And even more!

Well, I'll prepare food.

It starts when you're ready.

Are you ready?

Good morning.

You remember the girl

who was rescued the other day?
