Time to Leave (2005)
Romain: In my dreams I'll sleep with anyone. My father, my mother... even myself as a kid. Guess I'm trying to do it all before dying.
[Romain has told no one else of his terminal condition]
Laura: So why did you tell me?
Romain: Because you're like me. You'll be dying soon.
Le père: How are things with Sasha?
Romain: Not bad, not great. We'll probably break up soon.
Le père: Shit. Why?
Romain: Like in all couples, routine kills desire.
Laura: After your grandfather died, I was devastated. I thought I was going to die, so I left. I ran away. I abandoned my child, your father. I couldn't take care of him anymore. I'd see Jacques in his smile, in his eyes. They called me a bad mother, a whore even. Your father never forgave me, but I know I was right. If I hadn't left, if I hadn't had all those lovers, I would have died too. You can call it selfish, but it was a survival instinct.
[Romain's mother expresses her interest in Romain taking photographs of the family]
Sophie: Save you breath, Mom. We're not hip enough. He prefers actresses and models.
La mère: Don't say that. He just hasn't had time yet.
Le père: Of course.
Romain: No, she's right.
La mère: Why do you say that?
Romain: I don't want to photograph her kids.
Le père: Romaine, stop.
Sophie: Leave it, Dad.
Romain: And you know why? Because they sprang from you, and your ugly mug would be in the picture. It makes me want to puke.
La mère: Romaine, stop it!
Romain: No wonder your man left. It's like you made the kids alone.
Romain: You don't love me anymore.
Sasha: I don't know.
Romain: I don't love you anymore either.
Sasha: Don't play with me.
Laura: So, who have you told?
Romain: No one. Just you.
Laura: Friends? Colleagues?
Romain: Nobody at all. I told them I needed a vacation.
Laura: What about your sister?
Romain: You're crazy. No way.
Laura: What's the matter? Can't you sleep?
Romain: No, impossible.
Laura: Want to talk?
Romain: No, just sleep with you.
Laura: You know I sleep naked.
Romain: That's okay. I won't look.
