That will make you think.

0:01:050:01:06

Stay there!

0:03:090:03:11

Thank you.

0:03:190:03:20

May I walk with you?

0:03:290:03:30

Fine.

0:03:320:03:33

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen.

0:03:420:03:43

-ALL:

-Good morning, sir!

0:03:430:03:45

We have a visitor...this morning.

0:03:450:03:47

Er... Your coat.

0:03:490:03:51

Have a seat there.

0:03:560:03:58

I am afraid there was a slight mishap on the way here.

0:04:000:04:04

I think the corrections will still be legible.

0:04:040:04:08

Max, would you do the honours?

0:04:080:04:10

More work required there.

0:04:110:04:14

No opportunity to honour and respect yourself.

0:04:140:04:19

But Marcus Aurelius was both philosopher and an emperor.

0:04:190:04:24

There's no coincidence, that was the way with the Romans.

0:04:240:04:27

Thought and action were all one.

0:04:270:04:31

I think we were chapter 12, page 42.

0:04:310:04:34

Er... Natalie, perhaps you'd...begin?

0:04:470:04:51

"How can it be that the Gods...

0:04:510:04:55

"overlooked this alone

0:04:550:04:59

"that some lost men...

0:04:590:05:01

"and those very good men,

0:05:010:05:04

"who have had the most...?"

0:05:040:05:07

"Intercourse with the divine."

0:05:070:05:10

Uh, just keep on going.

0:05:110:05:13

"If it is so that we live only a small part of the life

0:05:530:05:57

"that is within us, what happens to the rest?"

0:05:570:06:00

Ah, Mr Gregorius.

0:06:110:06:13

I am afraid your book on Persian grammar has yet to arrive.

0:06:130:06:17

Uh, no, that's not why I came...

0:06:170:06:19

Do you know that book?

0:06:190:06:21

Indeed. I sold it to someone yesterday.

0:06:210:06:24

A woman?

0:06:240:06:25

Yes. She came in, asked for the Portuguese section,

0:06:250:06:29

found this book, sat there,

0:06:290:06:31

read it for an hour or so then became rather upset,

0:06:310:06:35

paid for the book and left.

0:06:350:06:37

How did you come by?

0:06:370:06:38

I found it.

0:06:380:06:40

-Where to?

-Lisbon, eventually.

0:06:530:06:57

Leaving in 15 minutes.

0:06:580:07:00

-Thank you.

-She was wearing that coat!

0:07:020:07:05

-OVER TANNOY:

-Attention please.

0:07:150:07:16

Line ten on platform eight is now leaving...

0:07:160:07:20

What is all this noise?

0:07:220:07:24

-Where is Mr Gregorius?

-He left, Mr Kagi.

0:07:260:07:29

He left?

0:07:290:07:31

-There was a woman with him here.

-LAUGHTER

0:07:310:07:35

Impossible.

"mostly forgotten." PHONE RINGS

0:08:190:08:22

-Hello.

-This is Mr Kagi. Where are you?

0:08:290:08:32

-I'm on a train.

-A train?

0:08:340:08:37

-Where to?

-Lisbon.

0:08:370:08:40

(Would you take care of my books? I left them on my desk.)

0:08:410:08:44

"What could, what should be done...

0:08:510:08:54

"with all the time that lies ahead of us,

0:08:540:08:57

"open and unshaped,

0:08:570:08:59

"feather-light in its freedom

0:08:590:09:02

"and lead-heavy in its uncertainty?

0:09:020:09:05

"Is it a wish?"

0:09:060:09:07

"Dream-like and nostalgic,

0:09:080:09:11

"to stand once again at that point in life..."

0:09:110:09:16

"and be able to take a completely different direction

0:09:160:09:19

0:10:070:10:09

-Where is your luggage?

-I don't have any.

-Ah.

0:10:110:10:14

I will trust you and give you a room...

0:10:160:10:18

..with a view of the sea.

0:10:190:10:21

There, the sea.

0:10:280:10:30

-Anything else, sir?

-Yes

0:10:330:10:36

I want to find the address of the man who wrote this.

0:10:360:10:39

Thank you.

0:10:440:10:45

-Anything else?

-No, thank you.

0:10:470:10:49

Good morning, I am looking for Amadeu de Prado.

0:11:260:11:28

One moment.

0:11:300:11:31

I believe you are looking for my brother?

0:11:480:11:50

Yes. Is the doctor in?

0:11:500:11:54

Are you ill?

0:11:540:11:55

No, I'm... I am reading this book.

0:11:550:11:58

I'd very much like to meet him.

0:11:580:12:01

What he writes touches me very deeply.

0:12:010:12:04

You should come inside.

0:12:070:12:09

You may sit.

0:12:110:12:13

Some tea? Red Assam is Amadeu's preference.

0:12:140:12:18

Thank you.

0:12:180:12:20

SHE RINGS BELL

0:12:200:12:23

Tea, Clotilde.

0:12:230:12:24

This is Amadeu's favourite room.

0:12:250:12:28

It's a beautiful room.

0:12:290:12:30

He has read every one of those books.

0:12:320:12:34

Does he still practice as a doctor?

0:12:390:12:41

Where did you get it?

0:12:420:12:44

I came across it in Bern, where I live.

0:12:440:12:47

Only 100 were ever printed.

0:12:470:12:50

I have six copies left.

0:12:500:12:52

I often wondered where the other 94 went.

0:12:550:12:58

-Bern is in Switzerland, is it not?

-Yes.

0:13:020:13:06

And the book has travelled? That is a good thing.

0:13:060:13:10

-Has he written anything else?

-Nothing that has been published.

0:13:130:13:17

He wanted to be a writer, a philosopher...

0:13:180:13:21

..then he decided to become a doctor.

0:13:220:13:25

He didn't believe people should be in pain.

0:13:250:13:27

-Is that him?

-That is our father.

0:13:310:13:33

-He was a famous judge.

-So I gather, from the book.

0:13:350:13:38

He and Amadeu had a rather complicated relationship.

0:13:380:13:42

"Consider from the standpoint of eternity,

0:13:420:13:44

"that rather loses its significance."

0:13:440:13:47

Yes.

0:13:470:13:48

-He often said that to Amadeu.

-Amadeu does not believe in eternity.

0:13:490:13:53

Unfortunately not.

0:13:540:13:56

I don't mean to pry, but...

0:13:570:13:59

..may I ask how your father died?

0:14:010:14:04

No. No, you may not.

0:14:040:14:06

(If you want to see Amadeu...you will find him in Cemetery Prazeres.)

0:14:120:14:17

-MAN'S VOICE:

-"We leave something of ourselves behind

0:14:240:14:27

"when we leave a place.

0:14:270:14:29

"We stay there, even though we go away.

0:14:300:14:34

"And there are things in us

0:14:350:14:37

"that we can find again only by going back there.

0:14:370:14:41

"We travel to our souls when we go to a place

0:14:420:14:46

"that we have covered a stretch of our life...

0:14:460:14:49

"..no matter how brief it may have been.

0:14:500:14:53

"But by travelling to ourselves, we must confront our own loneliness.

0:14:540:14:59

"And isn't it so that everything we do

0:15:010:15:03

"is done out of fear of loneliness?

0:15:030:15:05

"Isn't that why we renounce

0:15:080:15:10

"all the things we will regret at the end of our life?"

0:15:100:15:13

Excuse me. I am looking for Amadeu de Almeida Prado.

0:15:190:15:23

-Prado.

-Thank you.

0:15:250:15:27

"When dictatorship is a fact, revolution is a duty."

0:15:360:15:43

HE SCREAMS

0:15:570:15:59

Bloody idiot!

0:16:000:16:03

HE GROANS

0:16:150:16:17

"Is it ultimately a question of self-image,

0:16:190:16:22

"the determining idea one has made for oneself

0:16:220:16:25

"of what one has to have accomplished and experienced

0:16:250:16:28

"so that one can approve of the life one has lived?"

0:16:280:16:31

"If this is the case,

0:16:330:16:34

"the fear of death might be described

0:16:340:16:37

"as the fear of not being able to become whom one planned to be.

0:16:370:16:41

"If the certainty befalls us that it will

0:16:430:16:45

"never be achieved, this wholeness,

0:16:450:16:48

"we suddenly don't know how to live the time

0:16:480:16:52

"that can no longer be part of a whole life."

0:16:520:16:55

Better?

0:17:060:17:07

Or worse?

0:17:090:17:10

Better.

0:17:110:17:13

You feel as if you wrote the book yourself.

0:17:130:17:15

I would have liked to have done.

0:17:150:17:16

He talks about everything that's preoccupied me for years.

0:17:160:17:21

Better or worse?

0:17:210:17:23

Worse.

0:17:240:17:25

Tell me one of these beautiful sentences you read.

0:17:260:17:29

"The real director of life is accident,

0:17:290:17:34

"a director full of cruelty,

0:17:340:17:36

"compassion and bewitching charm."

0:17:360:17:39

By accident, he means fate?

0:17:390:17:40

No, I think he means chance, randomness chance.

0:17:400:17:44

Let's take a break, rest your eyes for a moment.

0:17:440:17:47

You are a man who does not sleep well.

0:17:490:17:51

-You can tell?

-The eyes reveal everything.

0:17:510:17:53

Look at these eyes.

0:17:550:17:57

Tell me what they reveal.

0:17:580:18:01

They're melancholic, but hopeful.

0:18:010:18:03

Tired, but persistent.

0:18:030:18:05

Contradictory.

0:18:050:18:07

Why would his sister pretend that he was still alive?

0:18:070:18:10

I have no idea. Shall we resume?

0:18:100:18:12

Oh.

0:18:120:18:13

So you met a woman in a red coat, who disappeared,

0:18:220:18:25

-and you just dropped everything?

-Then I read the book.

0:18:250:18:28

I would love to be able to do that, just drop everything.

0:18:290:18:32

-You do that often?

-No, I've never done anything like that before.

0:18:320:18:35

Better or worse?

0:18:350:18:37

Uh, better.

0:18:370:18:39

How does that feel?

0:18:400:18:43

You talk about seeing as feeling.

0:18:430:18:45

-Well, isn't it?

-I suppose it is.

0:18:450:18:48

-How clear is it - the image?

-Very clear.

0:18:480:18:50

And how about this?

0:18:520:18:53

Everything is in focus.

0:18:570:18:58

Sir, we have this new one here.

0:19:060:19:09

"The decisive moment of life,

0:19:120:19:14

"when its direction changes forever,

0:19:140:19:17

"are not always marked by loud and shrill dramatics.

0:19:170:19:20

"In truth, the dramatic moments of a life-determining experience

0:19:210:19:26

"are often unbelievably low-key."

0:19:260:19:28

"When it unfolds, its revolutionary effect

0:19:300:19:33

"and ensures that a life is revealed in a brand-new light,

0:19:330:19:37

"it does that silently.

0:19:370:19:39

"And in this wonderful silence resides its special nobility."

0:19:410:19:46

Now you wonder if the old pair were better.

0:19:470:19:49

-Yes.

-But they are not, are they?

0:19:490:19:51

No. They feel very light.

0:19:540:19:56

Getting used to them will take some time.

0:19:560:19:59

Do you take credit cards?

0:19:590:20:00

You can sort all that out with my receptionist.

0:20:000:20:03

Before you go...

0:20:040:20:06

I have an uncle.

0:20:060:20:07

He lives in a nursing home across the Tejo.

0:20:070:20:10

I called him last night and told him about you and the book.

0:20:100:20:13

He knew Amadeu de Prado well.

0:20:130:20:15

I told him you want to know about Amadeu

0:20:150:20:18

and he said he'd talk to you.

0:20:180:20:20

He was in the resistance.

0:20:200:20:22

I must warn you, my uncle can be difficult.

0:20:230:20:27

In what way?

0:20:270:20:29

The generation that lived under the dictator Salazar

0:20:290:20:32

is still battling to come to terms with what happened.

0:20:320:20:36

When the resistance began, the secret police were extremely brutal.

0:20:360:20:40

To this day, people don't like talking about it,

0:20:400:20:43

the perpetrators as well as their victims.

0:20:430:20:46

Uncle Joao, how are you?

0:20:540:20:56

What are you doing here?

0:20:560:20:58

This is the man I was telling you about, Raimund Gregorius -

0:20:580:21:01

-I brought him.

-I said I'd talk to him, not you.

0:21:010:21:03

-But...

-You can wait in reception.

0:21:030:21:05

We go to the lounge.

0:21:050:21:07

So, you are interested in Amadeu de Prado?

0:21:140:21:18

Yes.

0:21:180:21:19

Mariana tells me you have a book he wrote.

0:21:200:21:23

-Would you like to see it?

-No.

0:21:230:21:24

I can imagine what it is like.

0:21:240:21:27

The godless priest.

0:21:270:21:28

That's a good description.

0:21:300:21:32

He was the only visitor they allowed me in prison.

0:21:330:21:36

'Every week he visits,

0:21:370:21:39

'with books and medicines, and cigarettes...

0:21:390:21:43

'which, of course, they take away the moment he leaves.'

0:21:430:21:47

Yeah, he had privileges.

0:21:480:21:51

-What sort of privileges?

-The kind you don't want in life.

0:21:520:21:55

-Do you have cigarette?

-No, sorry, I don't smoke.

0:21:580:22:01

Pity.

0:22:010:22:02

Mariana tells me that you and Amadeu were in the resistance.

0:22:060:22:11

-And Jorge, his best friend.

-Oh, yes, he writes a lot about Jorge.

0:22:110:22:14

They were joined at the heart and the soul...

0:22:140:22:17

for a time.

0:22:170:22:19

But Amadeu, he was too soft for the resistance.

0:22:190:22:24

He only joined because he feel guilty.

0:22:240:22:27

Mariana tells me you are from Switzerland.

0:22:290:22:32

Yes, Bern.

0:22:320:22:33

There was never a revolution in Switzerland, was there?

0:22:340:22:37

No. Somehow they've always managed to avoid such things.

0:22:370:22:42

They won't know what it's like to live without trusting,

0:22:420:22:45

never to trust your friends or family.

0:22:450:22:49

I met his sister, Adriana.

0:22:500:22:53

She... She acts as if he is still alive

0:22:530:22:57

and she wears black, as is if in mourning.

0:22:570:22:59

You can only fill my cup halfway.

0:23:120:23:15

No-one has ever done that for me before.

0:23:290:23:32

-Yeah...

-HE CHUCKLES

0:23:450:23:49

A gift from PIDE, the Portuguese Secret Police.

0:23:490:23:55

Rui Lus Mendes was his name.

0:23:550:24:00

1973...

0:24:000:24:03

in the springtime.

0:24:030:24:04

I'm home.

0:24:160:24:17

Who are you?

0:24:260:24:27

Where's my wife?

0:24:280:24:30

She kindly took your children for a walk.

0:24:300:24:33

This woman that knows all the names,

0:24:350:24:38

where do I find her?

0:24:380:24:40

I do not know.

0:24:400:24:41

I do not know what you are talking about.

0:24:430:24:45

Your wife tells me you are an excellent pianist.

0:24:480:24:51

Will you play for me...and my friends?

0:24:520:24:56

Please.

0:24:580:24:59

Can I see you hands, please?

0:25:110:25:13

-What should I play?

-Play us your favourite.

0:25:380:25:41

HE PLAYS PIANO

0:25:440:25:47

They say she has a photographic memory.

0:25:560:25:58

Is that true?

0:26:000:26:01

HE GROANS

0:26:070:26:09

I ask you once more, where is she?

0:26:190:26:22

HE GROANS

0:26:250:26:27

HE SCREAMS

0:26:360:26:38

What made it all that more terrible

0:26:430:26:45

was that someone said,

0:26:450:26:48

"Amadeu, he saved Mendes' life."

0:26:480:26:52

BELL RINGS

0:26:540:26:57

Dinnertime. They-they serve us early here, like in prison.

0:26:570:27:02

Not for the inmates, you understand, but for the staff.

0:27:020:27:05

I'm glad he's finally been able to tell someone about it.

0:27:070:27:11

I just wish it had been me.

0:27:120:27:15

It is often easier to speak to a stranger.

0:27:150:27:18

With my family, it's a bit different.

0:27:190:27:21

Pain is something we pretend happens to other people.

0:27:210:27:25

When Uncle Joao disappeared,

0:27:260:27:28

our parents told us he had gone to Brazil to work.

0:27:280:27:32

Then, after the Revolution, when he was released,

0:27:320:27:35

they told us he'd had an accident with his hands.

0:27:350:27:38

-He is very fond of you.

-He is?

0:27:400:27:42

He said you are the only one from the family who ever visits.

0:27:440:27:46

He is always so grumpy, I don't blame the others.

0:27:460:27:50

-What else did he say?

-He said he wished you were married.

0:27:500:27:52

-SHE GASPS

-I hate him!

0:27:520:27:55

Then, when you visited, there'd be children.

0:27:570:27:59

He actually said that? That he's fond of me?

0:28:000:28:03

Do you have children?

0:28:090:28:10

No. I have my students...

0:28:100:28:14

but the faces change every year, so I try not to get too fond of them.

0:28:140:28:17

I think now you are staying another day.

0:28:370:28:39

Yes, I might have to.

0:28:410:28:43

Nice glasses.

0:28:430:28:44

Father Bartolomeu?

0:29:350:29:37

Yes.

0:29:370:29:39

Joao Eca tells me that you buried Amadeu de Prado.

0:29:390:29:44

I would prefer to be remembered at the man who taught Amadeu,

0:29:450:29:50

not the one who buried him.

0:29:500:29:52

Amadeu was 12 years old when he first came to the school.

0:29:540:29:58

He came with no bag, no books.

0:29:580:30:01

He had read them all, you see.

0:30:010:30:03

Everything was in his head.

0:30:030:30:05

What does he say about the school in his book?

0:30:070:30:11

"For 1,922 days,

0:30:190:30:21

"I attended the Liceu, where my Father sent me,

0:30:210:30:25

"the strictest school in the whole country.

0:30:250:30:28

"By the third day I, realised I had to count the days

0:30:280:30:30

"so as not to be crushed by it."

0:30:300:30:33

He hated it that much?

0:30:350:30:37

Were Jorge and Amadeu in the same class?

0:30:400:30:43

Uh, no, not at first.

0:30:430:30:45

Amadeu skipped two grades.

0:30:450:30:50

He was that bright, you see.

0:30:500:30:52

And for two years, they were in the same class.

0:30:520:30:55

Or I should say, they were in a class of their own.

0:30:550:30:59

Amadeu, the aristocrat,

0:30:590:31:01

and Jorge, the working class boy.

0:31:010:31:03

They had a very noted curiosity, those two.

0:31:030:31:07

They would lie to their mothers

0:31:070:31:09

that they were going to spend the night at a friend's house.

0:31:090:31:13

Instead, they came here.

0:31:130:31:15

How did you find them, Jorge?

0:31:240:31:25

I was sleeping here, then I found the floor was loose.

0:31:250:31:28

-Jean-Paul Sartre.

-Karl Marx.

0:31:310:31:34

Henry Miller.

0:31:340:31:36

My God, if we found these books...

0:31:360:31:38

We would end up in Tarrafal,

0:31:380:31:40

along with all the other political prisoners.

0:31:400:31:43

But your father would never allow that, would he, Amadeu?

0:31:430:31:45

He would get Grand Minister Salazar personally intervene

0:31:450:31:48

and have the case thrown out of court.

0:31:480:31:51

You think it is a joke my father is a judge?

0:31:510:31:53

I think it is a joke that the son of a green grocer

0:31:530:31:55

is friends with the son of a judge. That is funny.

0:31:550:31:59

HE LAUGHS

0:31:590:32:01

You have to admit!

0:32:010:32:02

Amadeu would have been unhappy wherever he was.

0:32:060:32:10

He never played games with the other boys.

0:32:120:32:14

He never let himself go...

0:32:150:32:17

..except one time.

0:32:190:32:22

Nobody forgot that time.

0:32:240:32:26

Make room there, boys. Make room.

0:32:300:32:32

-My father is here.

-Of course he's here. What did you expect?

0:32:510:32:54

You should read this, Jorge. You wrote most of them anyway.

0:32:540:32:56

They are your words - I only helped you choose them.

0:32:560:33:00

-Amadeu, which is our religion?

-Loyalty.

0:33:000:33:03

What are our values?

0:33:030:33:05

Truth...above all else.

0:33:050:33:08

Exactly. Just keep your eyes on me and you'll be fine.

0:33:080:33:10

As is traditional,

0:33:130:33:14

we end our ceremony with a grade 12's graduation speech.

0:33:140:33:19

In this year, that honour will be bestow

0:33:190:33:22

to Amadeu de Almeida Prado.

0:33:220:33:25

APPLAUSE

0:33:250:33:27

I would not like to live in a world without cathedrals.

0:33:520:33:55

I need their beauty and grandeur

0:33:560:33:57

against the dirty colours of military uniforms.

0:33:570:34:00

I love the powerful words of the Bible.

0:34:030:34:05

I need the force of its poetry.

0:34:060:34:08

I need it against the decay of language

0:34:090:34:13

and the dictatorship of worthless slogans.

0:34:130:34:15

But there is another world I do not wish to live in...

0:34:190:34:21

..a world in which independent thinking is disparaged

0:34:230:34:26

and the finest things we can experience denounced as sin.

0:34:260:34:30

A world in which our love

0:34:300:34:32

is demanded by tyrants, oppressors and assassins.

0:34:320:34:36

And, most absurdly, people are exhorted from the pulpit

0:34:370:34:40

to forgive these creatures and even to love them.

0:34:400:34:44

It is for this reason we cannot just put the Bible aside -

0:34:460:34:50

we have to throw it away completely -

0:34:500:34:52

for it speaks only of a vain, holier-than-thou God.

0:34:520:34:55

In his omnipresence, the Lord observes us, day and night.

0:34:570:35:01

He takes note of our acts and thoughts,

0:35:010:35:03

but what is a man without secrets?

0:35:030:35:07

Without thoughts and wishes that he, and he alone, knows?

0:35:070:35:10

Does the Lord our God not consider

0:35:110:35:13

He's stealing our soul with his unbridled curiosity,

0:35:130:35:16

a soul that should be immortal?

0:35:160:35:18

But who would, in all seriousness, want to be immortal?

0:35:200:35:23

How boring to know that what happens today,

0:35:230:35:25

this month, this year, does not matter?

0:35:250:35:28

Nothing would count.

0:35:280:35:30

No-one here knows what it would be like to live eternally

0:35:310:35:34

and it's a blessing we never will.

0:35:340:35:37

One thing I can assure you,

0:35:380:35:40

it would be hell, this endless paradise of immortality.

0:35:400:35:45

It is death and only death that gives each moment beauty and horror.

0:35:450:35:51

Only through death is time a living thing.

0:35:510:35:54

Why does the Lord not know this?

0:35:540:35:57

Why does He threaten us with an...endlessness

0:35:570:35:59

that can only be unbearably desolate?

0:35:590:36:01

I would not want to live in a world without cathedrals.

0:36:070:36:10

I need the lustre of their windows...

0:36:100:36:13

their cool stillness, their imperious silence.

0:36:130:36:16

I need the holiness of words, the grandeur of great poetry,

0:36:180:36:22

but just as much I need the freedom

0:36:220:36:26

to rebel against everything that is cruel in this world,

0:36:260:36:30

for the one is nothing without the other.

0:36:300:36:32

And no-one may force me to choose.

0:36:320:36:34

APPLAUSE

0:36:400:36:44

What did you think?

0:37:180:37:19

I thought you would deliver a speech in Latin.

0:37:210:37:25

But then only a very few would have understood it.

0:37:260:37:29

Are you friends with that boy?

0:37:390:37:41

We are the best of friends.

0:37:420:37:44

All of those faces, and more...

0:37:490:37:51

..came to his funeral.

0:37:530:37:55

He died on the day of the Revolution...

0:37:550:37:58

..and so they all brought red carnations.

0:37:590:38:02

I dare not speak any words about God

0:38:040:38:07

after what Amadeu called "His empty promises",

0:38:070:38:13

but I did allow myself one religious word.

0:38:130:38:17

Amen.

0:38:200:38:21

-ALL:

-Amen.

0:38:210:38:22

I was very proud of him.

0:38:360:38:38

Then why did you never tell him, Papa?

0:38:390:38:41

To this day, I never found out what secret bound those two together

0:39:240:39:30

and what it had to do with Amadeu.

0:39:300:39:32

-My brother is not here.

-I know.

0:39:410:39:44

-Go away.

-I know what happened - he had an aneurysm.

0:39:450:39:51

It's in the book.

0:39:510:39:52

How do you live with that?

0:39:540:39:55

Knowing, at any time, blood vessel could burst,

0:39:550:39:59

flooding your brain with blood?

0:39:590:40:01

I only found out after, when I discovered his writings.

0:40:030:40:06

He never told anyone...

0:40:080:40:10

..not even me.

0:40:110:40:13

I am sorry. I didn't mean to upset you.

0:40:130:40:16

No, wait.

0:40:170:40:18

Let me show you where we worked.

0:40:210:40:23

People came, day and night...

0:40:320:40:34

..to see him...

0:40:360:40:37

..to be healed.

0:40:380:40:39

No-one should be in pain, he always used to say.

0:40:410:40:44

The door was always open.

0:40:450:40:47

I met Joao Eca.

0:40:510:40:53

He mentioned that Amadeu was in the resistance...

0:40:550:40:59

(Ha. The resistance.)

0:40:590:41:02

And that he saved Mendes' life.

0:41:050:41:08

It was late in the evening.

0:41:160:41:19

There were terrible shouts...

0:41:220:41:24

..across the square.

0:41:260:41:27

SHOUTING

0:41:290:41:32

CAR HORN BLARES The Police!

0:41:390:41:42

We need help!

0:41:510:41:53

Get the doctor.

0:41:590:42:00

In there!

0:42:020:42:04

Amadeu, you need to come, now.

0:42:110:42:14

Is this...?

0:42:240:42:26

Out. Out!

0:42:340:42:36

Adriana.

0:42:530:42:54

SHOUTING OUTSIDE

0:42:540:42:57

You're a traitor. Traitor!

0:43:450:43:48

Traitor.

0:43:480:43:49

-You are a traitor!

-I'm a doctor.

0:43:520:43:54

-ALL:

-You're a traitor!

0:43:540:43:56

You hear me? A doctor!

0:43:560:43:58

-ALL:

-You are a traitor!

0:43:580:44:00

We sat him down in this very chair and washed his face.

0:44:280:44:31

His beautiful face.

0:44:320:44:34

After that, people stopped coming...even Jorge.

0:44:360:44:40

That really hurt him.

0:44:400:44:41

Do you know of Jorge?

0:44:440:44:45

I know they were great friends.

0:44:450:44:47

-Why is the world so cruel?

-I often ask myself that.

0:44:490:44:52

-It is if it doesn't care.

-God doesn't care.

0:44:520:44:55

Amadeu was right about that.

0:44:570:44:59

I would like to be alone now.

0:45:030:45:05

-May I call on you again?

-Why?

0:45:070:45:10

His life, his world, was...

0:45:120:45:15

..extraordinary. Makes mine seem so insignificant.

0:45:170:45:20

-Do you have cigarettes?

-Which brand?

-Um...

0:45:260:45:29

You brought them?

0:45:490:45:51

No, wait, wait.

0:45:510:45:52

Everyone here is a spy - worse than the damn fascists.

0:45:520:45:56

We go outside.

0:45:560:45:57

You didn't telephone me just to get cigarettes.

0:46:000:46:02

I called because...

0:46:020:46:03

talking to you makes me sleep better last night.

0:46:030:46:06

Amadeu, he never smoked -

0:46:110:46:13

he's the only one who didn't.

0:46:130:46:15

Jorge, he smoked like a chimney.

0:46:150:46:17

-Jorge...is he still alive?

-I don't know.

0:46:310:46:34

I never talked to him after what happened with Estefania.

0:46:360:46:41

No-one knew how to.

0:46:410:46:43

It was too personal.

0:46:430:46:45

Who is Estefania?

0:46:460:46:48

The woman who remembered everything.

0:46:490:46:52

That's why they picked me up, to get to her.

0:46:520:46:55

Lieutenant Nicholas Ribeiro.

0:46:580:47:00

Benfica. 28 December.

0:47:020:47:07

Telephone, 857-2463.

0:47:070:47:11

7th Article.

0:47:130:47:15

Captain Carlos Peixe.

0:47:190:47:21

Sintra, 47 Rua... CAR APPROACHES

0:47:230:47:25

Sh!

0:47:250:47:27

KNOCK ON DOOR Jorge!

0:47:390:47:42

-Is that Amadeu de Prado?

-Jorge!

0:47:420:47:44

-Are you in there?

-Let him in.

-KNOCKING CONTINUES

0:47:450:47:50

Why have you been avoiding me?

0:48:000:48:02

Everyone else I can understand, but you?

0:48:020:48:04

I am not avoiding you.

0:48:040:48:06

-You are lying, Jorge. We do not lie to each other!

-Shh!

0:48:060:48:09

I want to join the resistance.

0:48:220:48:25

Because of guilt?

0:48:250:48:26

As a doctor, I had no choice.

0:48:280:48:30

As a doctor, you should have injected poison into his heart,

0:48:300:48:34

not adrenaline.

0:48:340:48:36

Sit, Amadeu.

0:48:410:48:43

Aren't you going to introduce me to your friends?

0:48:530:48:56

This is Joao.

0:48:560:48:57

And this is Estefania.

0:49:000:49:03

I was going to introduce you sooner, but...

0:49:060:49:08

The resistance keeps us busy.

0:49:080:49:10

Isn't she beautiful?

0:49:110:49:13

What if you first assignment was to kill your father?

0:49:220:49:25

-Why?

-Because he is a judge...

0:49:350:49:37

..part of the fascist regime.

0:49:380:49:40

Don't be upset, Amadeu. I was just testing you.

0:49:520:49:56

You knew it, straight away. Even Jorge would see it.

0:49:590:50:03

Estefania, she was completely drawn to him.

0:50:040:50:08

And the names and addresses?

0:50:110:50:13

Members of the armed forces sympathetic to our cause.

0:50:130:50:17

She had them stock piled in her head,

0:50:170:50:20

more than 200 names,

0:50:200:50:23

waiting for the day we call them, to rise up against the fascists.

0:50:230:50:28

PHONE RINGS

0:50:350:50:38

-Can I have my key, please?

-Of course, sir.

0:50:480:50:50

Is Miss de Prado at home?

0:51:150:51:16

She asked for you to wait, if you come.

0:51:160:51:19

Why you bring back the past?

0:51:300:51:32

I want to know how it felt to be Amadeu.

0:51:330:51:36

Did you know him?

0:51:370:51:39

Amadeu, you must eat.

0:51:480:51:51

You need to be strong for your final exams.

0:51:510:51:54

SHE CHOKES

0:52:030:52:06

Stand up.

0:52:130:52:15

Sit down.

0:52:220:52:23

Momma, come help me.

0:52:230:52:24

I have to do this, otherwise you will die.

0:52:290:52:31

Take your hands away.

0:52:310:52:33

Adriana, trust me.

0:52:340:52:36

AIR HISSES

0:53:030:53:05

Clotilde, call an ambulance!

0:53:060:53:08

The ambulance and the doctor came

0:53:100:53:13

and Adriana was rushed to hospital.

0:53:130:53:15

You can leave us now, Clotilde.

0:53:220:53:24

The doctor said I did the right thing.

0:53:340:53:36

Why do you say nothing?

0:53:430:53:44

-Why do you judge me so?

-BELL DINGS

0:53:460:53:50

The intervention is called tracheotomy.

0:53:550:53:58

If I hadn't have done it, we would have carried her out in a coffin.

0:53:580:54:00

I too shall have a cup of tea, Clotilde.

0:54:070:54:09

So now you know.

0:54:130:54:14

From then on, I was indebted to him...

0:54:160:54:19

..just as Rui Mendes was indebted to him.

0:54:200:54:22

The police knew very well the

0:54:250:54:26

clinic was been used as a cover for the resistance -

0:54:260:54:29

they never came and searched.

0:54:290:54:31

People would drop off envelopes of money and...

0:54:310:54:33

names, addresses, maps.

0:54:330:54:36

And then she would come.

0:54:390:54:41

Next.

0:54:430:54:45

Why have you not called me? I left messages.

0:54:480:54:50

I have something for Joao.

0:54:520:54:54

I have to talk to you. I cannot go on with Jorge.

0:55:000:55:03

Leave us.

0:55:050:55:06

Adriana, leave us.

0:55:100:55:11

Then one night, it-it all ended.

0:55:150:55:17

How?

0:55:180:55:19

Something had happened...

0:55:190:55:21

I do not know what, but that was the last time I ever saw her.

0:55:210:55:25

-There are patients waiting for you.

-Send them away.

0:55:340:55:37

-We do not send patients away?!

-Do it now.

0:55:370:55:40

If someone comes to the door, do not answer it.

0:55:400:55:43

Switch off the lights. We are not here.

0:55:430:55:44

Amadeu!

0:56:020:56:04

BANGING CONTINUES

0:56:040:56:07

Amadeu!

0:56:070:56:09

Joao Eca is at the door.

0:56:230:56:25

I'll be back.

0:56:260:56:28

Amadeu!

0:56:370:56:39

Come, come in.

0:56:390:56:40

Where is she?

0:56:440:56:46

Estefania.

0:56:470:56:49

I don't know. She went one way, I went another.

0:56:490:56:51

Jorge came to me - the problem is Estefania.

0:56:530:56:56

What do you mean?

0:56:570:56:59

He wants... He wants to eliminate her.

0:57:000:57:03

What?

0:57:040:57:05

He said, if they get to her, they'll get the names.

0:57:070:57:10

It will be the end of it.

0:57:110:57:14

Jorge wants to kill Estefania?

0:57:140:57:16

If she or Jorge come here, call me.

0:57:160:57:19

-You understand?

-I understand.

0:57:210:57:24

Okay.

0:57:240:57:26

What a mess.

0:57:300:57:31

What are you going to do?

0:57:440:57:45

Pack a bag and some food - I am taking the car.

0:57:480:57:51

-To where?

-Away from here.

0:57:510:57:54

-With her?

-Of course with her.

0:57:560:57:59

No, please no, Amadeu!

0:58:000:58:03

I beg you, don't do this thing!

0:58:030:58:06

Tell them she's here.

0:58:060:58:08

Don't go away with her, I beg you!

0:58:080:58:11

Please, don't go!

0:58:110:58:13

Do as I say.

0:58:170:58:19

Don't do this thing, it's wrong!

0:58:210:58:24

Something terrible will happen, I know it will!

0:58:250:58:28

He stepped over me - I'll never forget that.

0:58:330:58:37

He stepped over me...

0:58:380:58:40

..like I was...nothing.

0:58:410:58:44

Could I have a coffee, please?

0:59:290:59:31

-Hello?

-Mr Kagi, it's me.

0:59:330:59:36

I am sorry I missed your call yesterday.

0:59:360:59:39

Don't tell me you are still in Lisbon?

0:59:390:59:42

-Yes, I am.

-Where are you staying?

0:59:420:59:44

Hotel Silva - you wouldn't have heard of it.

0:59:440:59:47

Is it raining in Bern?

0:59:470:59:48

I can't keep teaching your class, you have to come back.

0:59:480:59:51

If you don't come back, I am going to have to get replacement for you.

0:59:510:59:54

Do you want me to do that?

0:59:540:59:56

-Perhaps.

-I need a yes or no, Raimund.

0:59:560:59:59

Mr Kagi, I have to go. I'm sorry.

0:59:591:00:01

DOG BARKS

1:00:121:00:15

Why are you following me?

1:01:171:01:19

Where does this come from?

1:01:301:01:32

His sister, Adriana, came across his notes.

1:01:321:01:35

She put them together in a book.

1:01:351:01:37

I came across that in Bern, Switzerland.

1:01:371:01:39

I want to know what happened to Estefania.

1:01:421:01:44

-Why?

-Amadeu is dead.

1:01:441:01:46

Adriana does not know. You are the only one who does.

1:01:471:01:50

Get the hell out of here!

1:01:501:01:53

Get out!

1:01:531:01:54

-MAN:

-Shh!

1:01:551:01:57

-Why has my uncle started smoking again?

-What?

1:01:591:02:02

The doctor from the nursing home called me,

1:02:031:02:05

and told me a stranger visited him and brought him some cigarettes.

1:02:051:02:09

-Well, he asked me for some.

-Are you trying to kill him?

1:02:091:02:12

He already has emphysema!

1:02:121:02:13

Yeah, but he enjoys smoking. Why deny him that pleasure?

1:02:131:02:16

Because it's bad for him.

1:02:161:02:18

So is living in that nursing home - it reminds him of being in prison.

1:02:181:02:22

-How are your new glasses?

-I'm getting used to them.

1:02:261:02:29

Would you have dinner with me?

1:02:301:02:32

I thought you'd never ask.

1:02:361:02:38

If-if-if Jesus had been put to death with a guillotine,

1:02:391:02:42

we would all be praying before a big, shiny blade.

1:02:421:02:46

Or-or if he'd been electrocuted, we'd be genuflecting in front of a chair.

1:02:461:02:49

THEY LAUGH

1:02:491:02:53

But can you really do that?

1:02:531:02:55

Nobody disliked to be another person without being the other person.

1:02:551:02:59

You can imagine what it's like to be that other person.

1:02:591:03:03

"Imagination is our last sanctuary" -

1:03:031:03:06

that's one of his lines.

1:03:061:03:07

Though he also said, "Intimacy is our last sanctuary."

1:03:071:03:11

You remember the lines verbatim.

1:03:121:03:14

Well, that's because they... They mean something to me.

1:03:141:03:17

Poor Estefania, she... she remembered everything,

1:03:171:03:20

even trivial things - numbers, names, phone numbers, addresses...

1:03:201:03:25

To have a memory like that must drive you mad.

1:03:251:03:27

Sorry, I am going on.

1:03:291:03:31

I haven't talked as much as this for years.

1:03:331:03:34

No, no. I'm fascinated.

1:03:341:03:37

May I ask you how long you have been on you own?

1:03:401:03:43

Five and a half years.

1:03:441:03:46

But before that, you spoke to you wife?

1:03:461:03:49

Yes...

1:03:491:03:50

but it...

1:03:501:03:53

usually landed me in trouble.

1:03:531:03:55

What kind of trouble?

1:03:551:03:56

Well, we threw a party for her colleagues...

1:03:561:03:59

well...our friends,

1:03:591:04:02

and she found this quote from Pessoa.

1:04:021:04:05

"Fields are greener in their description than their actual greenness."

1:04:061:04:13

And somebody said, "Oh, that's a beautiful sentence."

1:04:131:04:16

I said, "Yes, but only a very few people will ever understand it."

1:04:161:04:19

And there was this terrible silence and then she said, my wife...

1:04:201:04:26

She said, "And I suppose you are one of the chosen few?"

1:04:261:04:30

So, that was the end of that party.

1:04:331:04:35

But you were right.

1:04:371:04:39

Yes, but it...was arrogant.

1:04:391:04:42

Stupid and arrogant.

1:04:421:04:44

And is that why she left you, because of your arrogance?

1:04:441:04:47

No. I think she left me because she found me...

1:04:471:04:52

..boring.

1:04:531:04:55

We are still in touch.

1:05:001:05:02

She called the other day.

1:05:021:05:04

She wanted me to move my books out of the garage

1:05:041:05:06

because her new boyfriend wanted somewhere to park his car.

1:05:061:05:09

SHE LAUGHS

1:05:091:05:12

I don't know why I am telling you all of this.

1:05:121:05:14

-Would you like to dance?

-No, I can't. I can't dance.

1:05:211:05:25

You see?

1:05:271:05:28

Boring.

1:05:301:05:31

Thank you.

1:05:381:05:40

I enjoyed that.

1:05:411:05:43

Raimund...

1:05:431:05:45

you are not boring.

1:05:451:05:47

My uncle would like to see you again.

1:05:491:05:52

Will you take him some cigarettes?

1:05:521:05:53

DOG BARKS

1:06:001:06:04

-Jorge is still alive.

-You met him?

1:06:151:06:17

Still running the same pharmacy,

1:06:171:06:19

smoking cigarette while he serves his customers.

1:06:191:06:22

-You brought some?

-Yes, I did.

1:06:231:06:25

Estefania was in the house when I was there?

1:06:281:06:31

She found them together in his study.

1:06:311:06:33

No wonder he lied to me...

1:06:351:06:37

because, you know, he never lied.

1:06:371:06:40

He could not tolerate dishonesty.

1:06:401:06:42

What had happened earlier that night?

1:06:421:06:45

Jorge's place become too small

1:06:451:06:48

and so we hired a room in an old warehouse for our meetings.

1:06:481:06:54

We pretended it was a literacy class - Estefania's idea.

1:06:541:06:59

We were so naive.

1:07:011:07:03

Nuno, you will be in charge of the railways.

1:07:031:07:05

The numbers you will call are -

1:07:051:07:07

Lisbon, 642-3518,

1:07:071:07:12

contact name, Leonardo.

1:07:121:07:14

Port, 235-5900, contact name, Julius.

1:07:141:07:20

The signal for the take over will come from Radio Renaissance now.

1:07:201:07:24

It will be the song that was banned, the song by...

1:07:241:07:28

DOOR OPENS

1:07:281:07:30

Excuse me. Are you lost?

1:07:341:07:36

Is this the literacy class?

1:07:361:07:39

Yes, we were just finishing. Please take a seat.

1:07:391:07:42

Most letters have more than one pronunciation except the letter "X"

1:07:461:07:53

and I will explain that in more detail next week.

1:07:531:07:56

Thank you all.

1:07:561:07:58

What is a professor of music doing here?

1:08:031:08:06

I met someone who cannot read.

1:08:071:08:11

I wanted to see for myself what kind of course it was

1:08:111:08:14

before recommending it.

1:08:141:08:16

Hmm-hmm.

1:08:161:08:18

What is this person's name?

1:08:181:08:21

Um... Caspian. HE LAUGHS

1:08:211:08:26

How original(!)

1:08:261:08:28

Sit down, all of you! Nobody leaves this room!

1:08:291:08:32

(Shh-shh!)

1:08:391:08:41

(Out! Out!)

1:08:471:08:48

SIRENS BLARE IN DISTANCE

1:09:131:09:15

(Joao!)

1:09:191:09:21

Give me your gun.

1:09:221:09:24

What for?

1:09:241:09:26

We have to do what is right for the resistance.

1:09:261:09:28

What happened to the others?

1:09:291:09:31

Estefania and Amadeu, they got away, but...

1:09:311:09:33

they're gonna find her and then she will talk.

1:09:331:09:35

The others, they don't know much. But Estefania, she knows everything.

1:09:361:09:40

Hey, hey. Hey, hey, Jorge...

1:09:401:09:42

What are you talking about?

1:09:421:09:44

You want to kill Estefania?

1:09:451:09:47

No. No, no.

1:09:471:09:49

I don't want to, but I have to.

1:09:491:09:53

One life for many lives. Give it to me.

1:09:531:09:56

Joao, give it to me.

1:09:571:09:59

I never find out what really happened.

1:10:021:10:04

Did he tell you?

1:10:051:10:07

No. When I asked him, he tell me to...get lost.

1:10:071:10:11

I need to know. I can't tell you how many times I wish

1:10:131:10:17

that I never gave him that gun.

1:10:171:10:20

Three days later, Mendes, he picked me up.

1:10:241:10:28

He broke my hands and my spirit...

1:10:291:10:34

but I never give him one single name.

1:10:341:10:37

You-you-you tell that to Jorge.

1:10:391:10:42

He owes me.

1:10:421:10:43

"In youth, we live as if we were immortal.

1:10:481:10:52

"Knowledge of mortality dances around us

1:10:521:10:55

"like a brittle paper ribbon that barely touches our skin.

1:10:551:10:59

"When in life does that change?

1:11:001:11:03

"When does the ribbon tighten,

1:11:051:11:08

"until finally it strangles us?"

1:11:081:11:10

PHONE RINGS

1:11:101:11:13

Mr Kagi?

1:11:201:11:21

Have you made a decision yet?

1:11:211:11:23

No.

1:11:261:11:28

A woman came asking for you.

1:11:281:11:29

She said she met you on a bridge, or something.

1:11:291:11:32

A Portuguese woman?

1:11:331:11:35

I told her where you were and she left.

1:11:351:11:38

If you decide not to come back, I need your keys.

1:11:381:11:41

-Will you post them to me?

-No, this woman...

1:11:411:11:44

Did-did she leave her name?

1:11:441:11:46

No.

1:11:461:11:48

Goodbye, Mr Kagi.

1:11:481:11:49

Joao Eca wants to know what happened to Estefania.

1:12:241:12:27

He says you owe him.

1:12:281:12:30

I owe no-one anything.

1:12:301:12:32

Do you know what they did to his hands?

1:12:371:12:39

Those hands that used to play Mozart?

1:12:411:12:43

He didn't give them one name.

1:12:431:12:45

If he had, you wouldn't be standing here.

1:12:451:12:48

You think you can blackmail me with guilt?

1:12:481:12:51

You don't know who you are dealing with!

1:12:511:12:53

Could I have killed her? That is the question!

1:12:561:13:01

Don't you know we don't talk about...about the resistance here?

1:13:041:13:08

We bury our history and move on!

1:13:081:13:11

You want a drink?

1:13:161:13:17

You are sitting where Amadeu used to sit,

1:13:231:13:26

until this thing with Mendes happened, then we...

1:13:261:13:29

We have the list of reasons for loyalty -

1:13:321:13:35

guilt towards others...

1:13:351:13:39

shared suffering, common struggle, common strength,

1:13:391:13:42

weaknesses, need for closeness...

1:13:421:13:45

..common hatred, shared humour and so on.

1:13:461:13:49

-What about love?

-He didn't believe in it.

1:13:521:13:55

Avoided the word as too sentimental.

1:13:551:13:57

There are only three things that are important to him -

1:13:571:14:00

desire, pleasure and security.

1:14:001:14:03

Desire...Jorge.

1:14:051:14:07

I don't trust people who don't drink.

1:14:091:14:12

Have a cigarette.

1:14:201:14:22

HE COUGHS

1:14:351:14:36

You are OK?

1:14:381:14:39

Yeah.

1:14:411:14:43

-Joao still loves to smoke.

-He would.

1:14:431:14:46

HE LAUGHS

1:14:481:14:50

What?

1:14:501:14:52

The night after we graduated from Coimbra University,

1:14:521:14:56

me as a pharmacist, Amadeu as a doctor...

1:14:561:14:59

-What?

-Come, I have something to show you.

1:15:061:15:09

What do you think?

1:15:251:15:26

So? It's a... It's a pharmacy.

1:15:291:15:31

Yes. It's yours.

1:15:311:15:33

Come in.

1:15:391:15:40

I need a pharmacist I can trust

1:15:481:15:50

if I am going to be writing up prescriptions.

1:15:501:15:53

Here.

1:15:531:15:54

I could not believe what he had given me.

1:16:011:16:04

After that, I never thought we could lose our friendship.

1:16:061:16:10

I never thought it possible.

1:16:131:16:15

I'm not much to look at, I know I'm an ugly bastard,

1:16:171:16:21

so, when she came along...

1:16:211:16:23

God, she was beautiful.

1:16:251:16:27

I thought some of her would somehow rub off on me.

1:16:281:16:32

HE LAUGHS

1:16:321:16:34

At least that's what I think I thought.

1:16:341:16:37

And this is Estefania.

1:16:411:16:44

I was going to introduce you, but...

1:16:461:16:48

The resistance keeps us busy.

1:16:481:16:50

Isn't she beautiful?

1:16:531:16:54

It was the way she took my hand and removed it from her neck.

1:17:011:17:05

Her eyes penetrating him.

1:17:061:17:08

We'll think about it, Amadeu, and get back to you.

1:17:081:17:12

All right?

1:17:121:17:14

Perhaps we can use your clinic as a drop.

1:17:201:17:22

Why did you take my hand off your neck?

1:17:281:17:30

Did I?

1:17:311:17:33

Have you ever been in love?

1:17:411:17:44

So that not even food matters? Not even words?

1:17:441:17:47

-I am not sure.

-You would be sure. You would know.

1:17:491:17:52

You always know.

1:17:541:17:56

-You're thinking of him.

-What?

1:17:571:18:00

HE SIGHS

1:18:021:18:04

You wish I was Amadeu.

1:18:151:18:17

Does he mention me in the book?

1:18:221:18:24

A lot.

1:18:271:18:29

Well, I am surprised she published it. Adriana hated me.

1:18:291:18:32

Wanted him for herself,

1:18:321:18:34

did not even want to share him with her father.

1:18:341:18:36

-You know what happened to him?

-No.

1:18:361:18:40

A few months before the revolution,

1:18:401:18:42

he went to Amadeu and asked for stronger pain killers for his back.

1:18:421:18:45

Adriana came every week to the pharmacy for the pills,

1:18:461:18:49

but he never took them - he hoarded them.

1:18:491:18:52

A week after Amadeu died, he swallowed over 100.

1:18:531:18:57

The newspapers said he died after a long illness.

1:18:581:19:01

Catholics don't appreciate suicide.

1:19:021:19:05

Hmm.

1:19:051:19:07

(Everyone out!)

1:19:091:19:11

Estefania, come with me.

1:19:181:19:19

CAR APPROACHES

1:19:421:19:43

HORN BLARES

1:19:431:19:45

If I had the gun then, I might have shot her.

1:20:241:20:27

And when you got the gun?

1:20:351:20:37

'I went strict to Amadeu's clinic.

1:20:381:20:40

'I knew they would be there.'

1:20:421:20:44

DOORBELL RINGS

1:20:441:20:47

-Where are they?

-They've gone.

1:20:481:20:51

-Don't lie to me...

-They've gone, Jorge.

1:20:511:20:53

CAR ENGINE STARTS

1:20:531:20:56

Jorge.

1:21:221:21:24

Give me the gun.

1:21:351:21:36

HE SOBS

1:21:591:22:01

Estefania, is she...?

1:22:291:22:32

Is she still alive?

1:22:321:22:33

I bumped into her two years ago.

1:22:361:22:40

She was here, attending some seminar or...

1:22:401:22:43

I asked her how she was.

1:22:461:22:48

She told me she was teaching history.

1:22:501:22:53

Where?

1:22:531:22:54

At the University of Salamanca in Spain.

1:22:541:22:57

And...your pharmacy...

1:23:001:23:02

Why do you leave the lights on at night?

1:23:041:23:07

HE LAUGHS

1:23:071:23:09

To remind me of Amadeu.

1:23:121:23:15

HE GROANS

1:23:261:23:28

HE GROANS

1:23:391:23:41

Mr da Silva, could I have my bill, please?

1:24:081:24:10

-Are you going back to Switzerland, sir?

-Yes, via Spain.

1:24:101:24:14

They say the weather right now in Switzerland is terrible -

1:24:141:24:18

rain, snow and wind.

1:24:181:24:20

I have to go. Could I have my bill, please?

1:24:201:24:22

Excuse me.

1:24:221:24:23

Hello.

1:24:281:24:30

I want to thank you for what happened on the bridge.

1:24:321:24:35

-I've been reading your book.

-I don't want it.

1:24:371:24:40

I just want to thank you for what you did.

1:24:431:24:45

I've got your coat.

1:24:501:24:51

You left it behind.

1:24:561:24:57

Tell me your name.

1:25:031:25:04

Catarina Mendes.

1:25:091:25:11

Yes...

1:25:131:25:14

..that Mendes.

1:25:161:25:17

I am the granddaughter of the "Butcher of Lisbon".

1:25:201:25:23

I didn't know who he was until I read the book.

1:25:261:25:29

You can't blame yourself for what you grandfather did.

1:25:311:25:34

You don't understand.

1:25:341:25:35

I loved him.

1:25:391:25:41

I cried at his funeral

1:25:421:25:44

and I did not understand why so many other people were not crying.

1:25:441:25:48

Anyway...

1:25:541:25:55

..it will take some time, but I'll learn to live with this.

1:25:571:26:01

This would be the same road they took.

1:26:131:26:16

But at night and in great danger.

1:26:161:26:20

And in love.

1:26:201:26:21

I was moved to see my uncle cry like that.

1:26:261:26:29

I don't know what pleased him more -

1:26:291:26:30

the news Estefania was alive, or the carton of cigarettes we gave him.

1:26:301:26:35

SHE LAUGHS

1:26:351:26:36

So, you return to your school and continue teaching?

1:26:401:26:43

If they'll have me.

1:26:451:26:46

I am sure I'll come back and visit.

1:26:491:26:51

Are you sure she'll be in?

1:27:131:27:14

She said she'd be here.

1:27:161:27:18

Are you coming?

1:27:181:27:19

I'll wait in the car.

1:27:191:27:21

No.

1:27:211:27:22

Go, Raimund. I'll be fine here. Take your time.

1:27:261:27:29

Welcome, Raimund.

1:27:331:27:34

-I'm Estefania.

-Thank you so much for meeting me.

1:27:371:27:39

Do you have the book?

1:27:411:27:43

I do.

1:27:441:27:45

He looks just as I remember him.

1:27:521:27:55

So long ago and still so vivid.

1:27:551:27:58

-Would you like some tea?

-Thank you.

1:27:591:28:02

What about your friend?

1:28:031:28:04

Oh, no. She is... She is happy in the car.

1:28:041:28:07

I joined the resistance

1:28:071:28:09

after my father was arrested in 1971 for sabotage.

1:28:091:28:13

They sent him to Tarrafal.

1:28:151:28:17

-You have heard of it?

-Yes.

1:28:171:28:19

It was also known as the "Campo da Morte Lenta" -

1:28:221:28:26

"The Camp of the Slow Death".

1:28:261:28:29

It took them two years to kill him.

1:28:301:28:33

And that is how I met Jorge.

1:28:341:28:36

I need someone strong.

1:28:371:28:39

Someone to protect me.

1:28:391:28:41

I thought that was love.

1:28:421:28:44

But then I met Amadeu.

1:28:471:28:49

A new light fell on everything.

1:28:581:29:00

My whole life.

1:29:021:29:05

I could not sleep any more.

1:29:071:29:09

I went to the clinic as often as I could...

1:29:111:29:13

..despite Adriana's looks.

1:29:141:29:17

He wanted to take me in his arms, but he kept rejecting me.

1:29:191:29:23

"Jorge", he would say, "What about Jorge?" I began to hate Jorge.

1:29:231:29:27

-Do you mind if I smoke?

-No. Please.

1:29:291:29:31

Jealousy is a terrible emotion.

1:29:331:29:36

SIRENS BLARE

1:29:361:29:39

SHE SIGHS

1:29:431:29:45

I could tell from his shoulders he had seen us.

1:30:111:30:15

Awful. Awful.

1:30:151:30:19

But, in a way, I was relieved it was done.

1:30:201:30:24

Are you sure your friend is all right?

1:30:261:30:28

Oh, yes. She is fine in the car.

1:30:281:30:31

We drove through the night.

1:30:321:30:34

Amadeu kept questioning me.

1:30:361:30:39

Was he searching for me or for life?

1:30:391:30:42

He wanted to know everything, my whole life, my...

1:30:421:30:46

memories,

1:30:461:30:49

thoughts, fantasies, dreams... It was relentless.

1:30:491:30:53

It was almost a relief when, 5km from the border,

1:30:531:30:57

he stopped and hid me in the trunk.

1:30:571:30:59

Passport.

1:31:131:31:14

-Why are you travelling to Spain?

-I am going to visit relatives.

1:31:341:31:38

Get out of the car, please.

1:31:391:31:41

Keys.

1:32:091:32:11

Do you know Major Rui Lus Mendes of PIDE?

1:32:141:32:17

What about him?

1:32:171:32:19

I want you to call him. I have his home number.

1:32:211:32:23

I want you to tell him you are treating me like a criminal.

1:32:251:32:28

INDISTINCT SPEECH

1:32:421:32:44

He wants to talk to you.

1:32:441:32:46

This is Dr Amadeu de Prado.

1:32:531:32:56

You are asking too much of me.

1:32:561:32:58

You took my life away from me - I want it back now.

1:32:581:33:01

Give the phone back to my man.

1:33:051:33:07

SHE SOBS

1:33:111:33:14

Ironic that I should ultimately be saved...

1:33:141:33:18

by the Butcher of Lisbon.

1:33:181:33:20

That night...

1:33:281:33:29

..we drove to Finisterra and slept in the car.

1:33:311:33:34

We'll go away.

1:34:121:34:14

We'll take a ship to the Amazon,

1:34:161:34:18

to a new world, where only you and I exist.

1:34:181:34:21

I'll write books...

1:34:251:34:27

we'll invent a new language that only you and I understand.

1:34:271:34:31

We'll go up the river as far as it will take us.

1:34:361:34:38

Back in time and into the future.

1:34:411:34:45

The very beginning of the end.

1:34:451:34:46

What would I do?

1:34:481:34:50

You'll share it with me.

1:34:511:34:53

The same air, the same feelings, same tastes.

1:34:551:35:01

These things that you want...

1:35:041:35:06

you want them for yourself, not for me.

1:35:061:35:09

I want them for both of us.

1:35:091:35:11

He was hungry for me and for life...

1:35:121:35:15

..but the journey he wanted to take

1:35:171:35:19

was into his own soul, not into mine.

1:35:191:35:22

I cannot do it, Amadeu.

1:35:341:35:36

What do you mean?

1:35:401:35:41

You want more than I can ever give you...

1:35:421:35:45

..and I'm not ready.

1:35:471:35:49

I'm so sorry.

1:35:551:35:56

I have friends in Salamanca.

1:36:181:36:20

Will you take me to them?

1:36:211:36:23

He drove me to Salamanca...

1:36:291:36:31

..he shook my hand...

1:36:341:36:36

..he wished me well and left.

1:36:371:36:40

The next I heard, he was dead.

1:36:461:36:48

I always felt I killed him.

1:36:511:36:54

He had an aneurysm.

1:36:561:36:58

An aneurysm?

1:36:581:37:00

A blood vessel burst in his brain.

1:37:001:37:03

He... He'd had it for a long time.

1:37:031:37:05

Did you...go to his funeral?

1:37:131:37:16

You didn't really think I would do it, did you?

1:37:311:37:34

It is no longer important.

1:37:371:37:39

SHE SOBS

1:37:581:38:00

So what happened to the names and telephone numbers

1:38:021:38:06

you had in you head?

1:38:061:38:08

Lisbon,

1:38:091:38:11

331-4518, contact name, Carlos.

1:38:111:38:15

Sintra, 245-102, contact name, Nuno.

1:38:161:38:21

I wrote them all down and passed them on to someone safe.

1:38:221:38:25

A few months later, they were used to initiate the revolution.

1:38:261:38:30

Your friend must be very tired of waiting.

1:38:331:38:35

-You can keep the book, if you like.

-Thank you.

1:38:411:38:44

I'm probably more ready for him now than I was back then.

1:38:441:38:48

-Goodbye, Raimund.

-Goodbye, Estefania.

1:38:491:38:52

"We leave something of ourselves behind when we leave a place...

1:39:111:39:15

"..we stay there, even though we go away.

1:39:161:39:20

"And there are things in us that we can find again

1:39:211:39:26

"only by going back there.

1:39:261:39:27

"We travel to our souls when we go to a place

1:39:291:39:32

"that we have covered a stretch of our life,

1:39:321:39:35

"no matter how brief it may have been."

1:39:351:39:37

This is me.

1:39:451:39:47

Well, we've still got...

1:39:501:39:52

..five minutes.

1:39:541:39:56

Thank you for...

1:39:581:39:59

..telling me I wasn't boring.

1:40:021:40:04

But when I think of their lives...

1:40:101:40:12

..Amadeu, Estefania, the others,

1:40:141:40:16

their lives full of such vitality,

1:40:161:40:20

-intensity...

-So much so it broke them apart in the end.

1:40:201:40:24

But they lived.

1:40:241:40:25

Whereas my life...

1:40:291:40:31

..apart from these last few days...

1:40:361:40:38

And now you are going back to it.

1:40:431:40:46

Oh, why don't you just stay?

1:40:581:41:00

What?

1:41:011:41:03

Why don't you just stay?

1:41:041:41:06

A desperate young woman and an intriguing book send staid Swiss professor Raimund Gregorius on a sudden quest to Portugal. Seeking the author, Raimund encounters mystery instead. He gradually pieces together decades-old secrets from people who, in their youth, united against the cruel Salazar dictatorship.
