Excuse me...

Come here, honey.

So how did it go?

Very well. We went towards

the dam, and then...

How did it go?

Very well. We went towards the dam,

and then to the old town.

You don't like

the old town, do you?

So did you have fun

with your friends?

Did you have fun

with your friends?

And were you a good boy?

You were a good boy.

You were mommy's good boy.

So... how did it go?

Very well.


We went towards the dam...

But did he feel good?

Excuse me?

Did he feel good?


He's somewhat of a loner.

He's anxious.

He doesn't like the

company of other animals.


It went impeccably.

He was with other dogs.

They ran.


they talked to each other.

That's good.

Very good.


Thank you.

Thank you, madam.





Jacques, I can't believe it.

Get up.

Come on.

Get on the bed.

Do you feel well?

Very well.

And you?

You're completely drunk.

It took you 3 hours to get ready.

Look how much you've drunk.

Don't worry.

These are little bottles.

You could have made an effort today.

Don't argue with me, honey.

I hate it when people

tell me the truth.


Don't move.

I'll give you a second pillow.

Thank you.

In 2 minutes I'll

be at your disposal.



I'm sorry.

You look awful.

- Did you walk the dogs again?

- Yes.

And today morning

I took care of supplies.

Why do you accept this work?

They're so used to me accepting,

that I don't dare refuse.

Besides, I have the time.

Do as you like.

It's not my problem.

But don't fall asleep in the bar.


Of course.

I'm sorry.

It won't happen again.

I'm leaving now.

- Can you close up?

- Yes, of course.

He'll leave if

you turn down the lights.

Excuse me.

I'd like another one.

It's good you turned

down the lights.

It's nicer this way.

Thank you, sir.

Can you turn on the TV?

There's a live broadcast on Eurosport.

Yes, sir.

Sit down.

I'm not allowed to

leave the bar, sir.


Really. Except to serve drinks and...

in case of a fire.

Yes, sir.

Sit down.

Have a cigar.

Have a cigar.

The leaves grow in

the middle of cocoa fields.

That's what gives them

their particular aroma.

Do you smell it?

Yes, sir.

Because of the embargo against Cuba,

I fly them in by private jet.

One cigar costs about...

120 euros.

Good evening.

I'm sorry.

This is the first time

I've fallen asleep like this.

Considering the mood here,

I don't see anything better to do.

This place is dead.

No. It was brimming with life earlier.

But now it's a bit late.

It's not normal, that there isn't

anyone at the bar at this hour.

Normally, they aren't

allowed to leave before 3 a.m.

It's forbidden.

Unless there isn't anyone.

But you're here.


And I'm here, right?


Something like this wouldn't

happen at the Carlton.

You know, the Carlton...

Do you think their

service has worsened as well?

Do you think he'll come back?


The barman.

I don't know.

Will you wait with me for him?


Of course, miss.

That's nice of you.

Your cigar smells nice.

Normally I can't stand the smell,

but in this case...


It's because of the leaves,

which grow in the

middle of cocoa fields.


They're flown in from Cuba

by private jet because of the...

Because of the embargo?

That's it.

Are you alright?

Today is my birthday.

Happy birthday, miss.

It's off to a bad start.

I wanted so much

to have fun tonight.

I'd give anything for

a cocktail and some music.

What are you doing?

Cocktails are my specialty.

Isn't this too risky?

In the worst case,
