Here comes the woman in the red dress, promenading with a small dachshund past the newspaper vendor on the square. She passes the entrance to the subway with its well-known, twining Parisian Art Nouveau portal, where people pour up from the underground. In the crowd, we see a well-dressed young man come up from the metro – he reminds us at first sight of the French film director Francois Truffaut. The young man crosses the square diagonally onto the opposite pavement, where he meets another well-dressed but older gentleman. The young man stops in front of the older man and slaps his face. SLAP!
