谢谢 - 这一题你算算看
Thank you. - Let's see if you can calculate this!
Thank you. sir.
Twelve million six hundred and twenty-four thousand
eight hundred and thirty-one point three three three.
You're radiant, Claire.
You did all this?
I can turn my hand to interior decorating.
You've done a wonderful job Virgil... thank you!
I can't tell you how long
I've been wanting to spend time alone with you
somewhere quiet far from the madding crowd.
To your serenity, Claire.
To your irony, Virgil.
And now I feel I can finally tell you.
You are more beautiful than the dancer.
Dinner is served. Please be seated.
But I warn you, as a waiter I'm not of the highest class.
I offer no guarantees.
I'll take the risk.
Somewhat foolhardy of you.
Because if the service were not to be to your liking...
next time I would be obliged to make a reservation
at the finest restaurant in town.
Let's not ruin this evening Virgil. Please...
Let's not talk about me.
Instead I'd like you to tell me about you, about your past.
You see, Claire, there's nothing very original about my life.
A child loses his parents
a horrible orphanage that sort of thing.
The only point of interest is that the nuns would punish the boy
by forcing him to work with a restorer who had a workshop in the institution.
And since he loved to observe this craftsman
the little boy started to get up to all sorts of mischief
to ensure he would punished as frequently as possible
and so he became acquainted with works of art
and the various techniques of painting
how to tell a forgery from the an original, etc., etc.
Do you know, in an old article of yours I found the other day on the Internet
you said:"There is always something authentic concealed in every forgery."
What did you mean by that?
That in simulating another person's work
the forger cannot resist the temptation to put in something of himself.
Often it's just a trifle a detail of no interest
one unsuspected brush stroke by which the forger inevitably ends up
betraying himself and revealing his own
utterly authentic sensibilities.
I really love the way you talk.
You couldn't have been more convincing
a born seducer.
So you'd give me a pass?
Sorry you've been a bit neglected lately.
You haven't said anything about Claire.
Well, if I didn't know about her problems
I'd say she was a completely normal woman.
And she's much more beautiful than you described.
No, really. I liked her.
So now you're going to make me jealous?
If you want my advice, Virgil...
You pray that girl never gets better.
Mr. Oldman, do you want lots 87 and 88 done separately?
No, together, always together. That's important.
How can I help you?
It's about Robert.
What's going on?
Don't be afraid to tell me.
We're not getting on so well that's the problem...
all those girls hovering around him...
I guess I'm just...
I'm afraid of losing him.
Is there anything I can do?
Do you want me to talk to him?
For a while now he's been talking about someone called Claire.
I don't understand.
everybody's got to be on their guard
all the time.
That goes for you, too.
I feel so stupid.
Promise me you won't say a word to him.
Have you been waiting there long?
If you'd phoned I wouldn't have kept you waiting.
I preferred to speak to you in person.
Why, is there something wrong?
One of my assistants will come by today. Kindly hand over the Vaucanson as it is.
All right. Whatever you want.
Tell him how much you're owed for your work.
He'll pay you on the spot.
I think I'm at least due an explanation, aren't I?
You're not the trustworthy discreet man I thought you were.
It's weird seeing them all so perfect and polished up.
It's as if they weren't mine.
I believe nothing is missing.
There is something missing.
How could you have lived the best years
of your life in here my darling?
I don't know, I don't know.
But it was just the right thing.
It still is.
It always will be.
You have to get out of here. And you have to do it by yourself.
I don't have the courage.
It's a spider's web that I'll never know
how to break free of.
It's an old collection my father was very fond of.
I never did understand what it was.
你好 总监 早安
Hello? Oh, good morning, director.
Yes, I'm nearly finished,
but I would like to rewrite the last chapter...
A more upbeat ending...
if that's all you want...
好 过两天再聊 谢谢
yes, talk to you soon... thanks.
I wouldn't rule them out as being part of something of some value
but exactly what I wouldn't be able to say...
I often wonder if...
