EN - Passion... True Love... Harry scrambles into the tram, exchanges glances with Jeanne, the tram conductor and falls madly in love, there and then... He tries to approach her... He would like to get closer... Twinkle in their eyes... This is how it could have been for them and how Harry and Jeanne would have wanted it to be, yet we all know that love comes either too early or too late, but never at the right moment.

FR - Passion… Véritable amour… Harry entre dans le tram, échange des regards avec Jeanne, la conductrice du tram, et tombe fou amoureux sur le coup … Il essaie de l’approcher… Il aimerait se rapprocher… Des étoiles dans leurs yeux… Voilà comment cela aurait pu se passer pour eux et comment Harry et Jeanne l’auraient voulu, mais nous savons tous que l’amour arrive toujours trop tôt ou trop tard, mais jamais au bon moment.
