I'm like the king of a rainy country,

rich yet powerless,

young and yet very old.



Village of Ruiflec

August 8, 1944


Give in!

It's useless!


Fire, in God's name!

Strempel, if you're behind the door,

get down!

Get down!


I beg you...

Don't do it.

Don't worry, Sergeant.

Trust me...



Stop, Mathias!

You don't have any more scary ones

in your book?

- Yeah, but that one worked ok.

- For you, everything works!

What, for me?

- What?

- What?

I didn't say anything.

- Shut up.

- I didn't say anything.

No-one else has

another scary story?

No, that's enough.

I like it.

You read weird things.

Legends, Superstitions

and True Curses.

This is a rare book.

Emma, put your seatbelt on, please.

Why doesn't he let me lead?

We'd already be there.

You don't know the way,

don't moan.

I'm not moaning.

Chill out.

You're chilled out alright.

I don't have my sister bugging me.

- Damn it!

- Feel sick again?


You want us to stop?

Don't barf in the car.

Just the sandwich

not going down.

Last time

I eat on the freeway!

It's your stories

that don't go down.

You think it's funny

because it never happened to you.

- And to you it did?

- What?

- No, no.

- Go on, you started.

You started, you finish, Lila.

The story with the girl?

What story with the girl?

This sounds very interesting.

Lila, go on, tell it.

- You're a drag.

- Ok, drop it...

A little argument?

Keep your eyes

on the road, huh?

We should have gone

in Hugo's car.

Who invited Hugo?

He's your sister's boyfriend,

didn't you know?

She didn't tell me.

I wanted to tan.

I know what we can do...

What's your problem?

Is it me?

Give me some time,

Hugo, please.

Pardon Katia, what was that?

- Leave it out, Hugo...

- I thought she said something.

I didn't say anything.

She does talk!

Me, at least I speak

all languages.

- Stan, can you translate?

- Is it Stan or Stephane?

Stan. It's his stage name.

That's my baby.

Check this out.



Turn it up!

What's the story with the girl?

Go on!

When I was little...

I often went on holiday to my aunt's,

near Madrid.

One afternoon, I was playing ball

with the other kids...

opposite the neighbor's house.

At one point...

I threw it too hard

and the ball went into the garden

of the house next door...

I was freaking out.

I couldn't find the ball.

I could hear the others laughing.

And suddenly...

She said...

My name is Elena.

Do you want to play with me?

No one lived in the house?

No. The garden was a jungle.

I asked her where her parents were.

You wanna play in the pool?

The GPS is gone. We're lost.

Is that it?

The last inhabitants of the house

were a couple.

With a little girl...

called Elena.

They had been living there

a few months...

and one day...

they discovered...

their daughter...



at the bottom of the pool.

You're kidding?

I'm used to it.

No one ever believes me.

I believe you.

You talked to a dead person?


- What the f*ck?

- Call him, please.

He doesn't know the route.


- What are you playing at... Call me!

- Why did I let her go with him?

- He's crazy.

- Don't worry.

You see them?

Watch out!





- Where are they?

- We only lost them for 30 seconds.

Marion? Hugo?

Where are you?

Does anyone have a signal?

- No.

- Me neither.

I can't start the car.

- What shall we do?

- We can't stand here in the rain.

Let's go to your grandparents' house.

We'll find a solution...

- Are you crazy?
