Pardon me?

Got a cigarette?


I forgot mine.





Seems to be lifting, could've eaten outside.

- It's freezing. - Thinks it's July.

Simon called.

What time?

About 9:

Could've told me.

I am telling you.

Misterwas awake, so he called.

That phone in the corridor's a pain.

I've said that foryears.

- When does he arrive? - Doesn't know.

Today, tomorrow. His usual mysterious self!

- He has workto do. - Like to see it.

So would I.

Try his studio.

It's roach infested.

- Ever seen his work? - Call that work?

I call it hot air, not a livelihood.

Never begs from you.

No, like yourself, he'd die first.

Don't start again.

Think I'm a fool?

I knowyou're paying his way,

when he could easily get ajob.

But I'm too dumb to understand his ''work''.

You don't understand because

you won't tryto.

You won't suffer, so you do nothing.

Your plates...

In we go...

Come along.

Leave your stuff, I'll prepare the room.

Sleeping in the same room?

I dunno.

Well, work it out.



You sleep naked or in a T-shirt?

In a T-shirt.

What's that smell?

I love it, it's so evocative.

Maybe the wood.

Can you help?

Who's that in the photo?

- Which one? - The big one.

- Me. - The state ofyou!

The hair and all...

- My Jim Morrison look. - A bit off!

Gonna help?

Who's he? Is that you?

No, that's...

my brother.

He died before I was born.

Careful, it's hot!

- Garlic? - I knewyou were coming.

Not true.

- Says who? - She was waiting bythe phone.

Not at all.

Maybe I call every day unknown to you.

- Offwe go! - Alice...

He calls on the sly, he ghosts around,

travels by UFO, and may be

a real-estate king!

Sorry, I don't feel well.

What's up? Can I get you something?

An anxiety attack.

I think I'll turn in.

See you tomorrow.

- It's delicious. - Not overdone?

It's missing something.

Yes, a bit bland...

Everthe kind word.

Never knowwho we might hurt.

- Or be hurt by. - Meaning who?

- Feel under attack? - Not at all.

You don't show it.

- A madhouse. - Simon told me.

What are you studying?

Studying? Like Simon.


Exactlythe same thing.

Not exactly.

In first yearyou don't have life drawing.

What's life drawing?

You have to draw a model

who poses on a podium...

For 10, 15, 30 minutes...

sometimesjust 10 seconds to capture the...

- And who poses? - Who poses?

It depends... Kind of odd-looking girls,

not too pretty, kind of plump.

A bit like you, in fact.

You could do it, hear it pays well.

I met Mathieu the other day.

Told him I was coming?

Of course.

Is this clean or dirty?

Let's see.

- Clean. - You sure?

Yeah. Leave it, I'll do it.


What's up?


Fucking thing!

I rinsed in cold water.

- How old are you? - 17. And you?

- 18. - Wouldn't think it.

Got some underwear?

I can't wearthese for ever.


Askyour sisterto go along.

- Want to come? - Where?

- To the pub. - To do what?

To do what...

To dance, have a laugh,

fool around, get drunk, snort coke...

- You're offyourtree. - Well, have fun.

Can you wait a sec? I want to pee.

Keep an eye.


- Got a Kleenex? - No.

Wait here, I won't be long.

What are you playing at?

Been waiting half an hour.

This is Mathieu...



Can we go? I'm sick ofthis.

Coming for a walk?

I dunno.

A bit of sea air...

Do you good, you're so pale.

Have I a spot there?

Looks like a spider bite.

All across your shoulders!

Hold on.

What're you doing?

It stings, but It'll cure it.

Where's my raincoat?

In the barn.

Will she ever learn to shut a door?
