We're arriving.


Here we are.

Look there!

Can you see what I see?

Holy sh*t!

Who is that bastard

who dares taking our place?

It got to be a joke.

Wait a minute little scum.

We won't miss him.

Come on, help us.

- Full to the brim.

- Yes Sir.

Is that yours?

Excuse me?

This car, is it yours?

I'd like to know who allowed you.

Mister doesn't live in Paris.

Who cares?

Otherwise he would know that

this place is mine!

I see, I see. So I am the wrong one.

What's happening?

What do you want?

Those people are permanent,

so they have some rights.

Well, well.

I ask you pardon for

damaging you privileges.

But I won't congratulate you.

We're not asking for that.

That would take the cake.

See you soon, idiot!


I'm planning on a vengeance.

This evening, for the first time of my life,

somebody hurt me.

My little car was moved

without my agreement.

This little monster deserves a good lesson.


He doesn't know Ronald.

For an eye, the face.

For a teeth...

But we have to wait.

Let's be patient.

Let's be hypocritical.

Let's be another.

Let's make up our smile.

I'll get it.


Who are you calling for?

Who's talking?

No Sir, he's not home yet.

With my smoking I'll tell him Sir.

I'll tell him Sir.

Yes, I'll tell him.

Good bye Sir.

I'll get my vengeance.

I don't know how yet...

but God will participate.

I need a miracle.

Satan is mine!

Who is she?


- You know her?

- A little bit.

She's cheeky.

The most beautiful butt of the city.


What a nice ass.

Are we going?

Let's go.

She went there.

Here she is.

Bernard, help me.

I don't know you.

I don't know you.

I don't know you.

I don't know you.

Now that we've met, can I go to your home?

Are you living alone?

My house is too little for the two of us.

Good bye.

Wait a minute!

I said good bye.

How big is your house?

We'll see.

Admit that you're disconcerting.

I can change my mind.

Be quiet. The caretaker is redoubtable.


La Jugeotte.

You're crazy. My uncle is sleeping. If he

wakes up, he will cut off my allowance.

Show some tact please.

What is La Jugeotte?

My name.

You real name?

Yes, like Saint-Gobin for you.

Where will I sleep?


It's not very appropriate.

Well, aren't we friends?


But when we sleep together, we make love.

Of course.

That's the point.

Does it bother you?

That's not it.

So what?

You're in a hurry.

Hurry up.

Are you deaf?

If my uncle come in, I'm dead.

Careful, he's coming!

You came back late yesterday.


At my age I sleep with one eye open.

This mess is probably...

Watch out, you're gonna tear my clothes.

The more torn the more fashion.

You're an early riser today,

what's happening?

Well, I...

I have a lesson.

A lesson?

Yes. By the way, I need some gas.

Take a bus.


Are you serious?

Am I serious? I hear "Am I serious"!


how much do you need?

I don't know... 50000.

Here is...

Thank you uncle.

Don't thank me, it's a pleasure.

But no more burnout.

The miracle happened,

thank you Satan.

Not a word, lovely witch.

Hello Madam.

I'm listening to you.

What to you need?

I have no more.

I've just sold all I have to this man.

Maybe he will sell you some.

Certainly not.

Is it a gift?

You're an angel,

your daisy where a pleasure.

I couldn't find chrysanthemums.

What does he do?

He's fantastic.

I forgot the strawberries.

Strawberries of love.

Let's go to the other room.

I didn't know you love painting.

Here is the radio from

the vernissage of the gallery...

Blessed be this vernissage

who let us met again.

I admit you impressed me.


I didn't think you could act.

Talk big, yes.

Argue endlessly in front of

your friends, ok.

Claude Chabrol

Claude Henri Jean Chabrol (French: [klod ʃabʁɔl]; 24 June 1930 – 12 September 2010) was a French film director and a member of the French New Wave (nouvelle vague) group of filmmakers who first came to prominence at the end of the 1950s. Like his colleagues and contemporaries Jean-Luc Godard, François Truffaut, Éric Rohmer and Jacques Rivette, Chabrol was a critic for the influential film magazine Cahiers du cinéma before beginning his career as a film maker. Chabrol's career began with Le Beau Serge (1958), inspired by Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt (1943). Thrillers became something of a trademark for Chabrol, with an approach characterized by a distanced objectivity. This is especially apparent in Les Biches (1968), La Femme infidèle (1969), and Le Boucher (1970) – all featuring Stéphane Audran, who was his wife at the time. Sometimes characterized as a "mainstream" New Wave director, Chabrol remained prolific and popular throughout his half-century career. In 1978, he cast Isabelle Huppert as the lead in Violette Nozière. On the strength of that effort, the pair went on to others including the successful Madame Bovary (1991) and La Cérémonie (1996). Film critic John Russell Taylor has stated that "there are few directors whose films are more difficult to explain or evoke on paper, if only because so much of the overall effect turns on Chabrol's sheer hedonistic relish for the medium...Some of his films become almost private jokes, made to amuse himself." James Monaco has called Chabrol "the craftsman par excellence of the New Wave, and his variations upon a theme give us an understanding of the explicitness and precision of the language of the film that we don't get from the more varied experiments in genre of Truffaut or Godard." more…
