(Take off your clothes.)

0:00:560:00:58

What?

0:00:580:00:59

I said, take off your clothes.

0:01:040:01:06

But you saw everything last night.

0:01:170:01:19

Mm, but I need to check something.

0:01:200:01:23

Shh.

0:01:230:01:24

Only for three seconds.

0:01:270:01:28

I've got to go.

0:02:100:02:11

Don't you ever spend the night at the woman's place?

0:02:140:02:18

Never.

0:02:210:02:22

What about when a woman's at your place?

0:02:250:02:27

I tell her I get insomnia...

0:02:310:02:34

anything.

0:02:340:02:36

Besides, I have a very narrow bed.

0:02:370:02:39

Are you afraid of women, Doctor?

0:02:420:02:45

Of course.

0:02:490:02:50

I really like you, Tomas.

0:02:540:02:56

You are the complete opposite of kitsch.

0:02:560:02:59

In the kingdom of kitsch,

0:03:000:03:01

you would be...

0:03:010:03:04

a monster.

0:03:040:03:06

No, wait.

0:03:080:03:09

Sabina, I've got to go.

0:03:090:03:12

Ah!

0:03:120:03:13

Ha ha ha!

0:03:130:03:15

Oh...

0:03:220:03:24

Oh...oh...

0:03:240:03:25

No, wait. Wait.

0:03:280:03:30

Yes, of course.

0:11:170:11:18

Oh, that's funny.

You're in Room 6.

0:11:240:11:26

So?

0:11:260:11:28

And my shift finishes at 6:00.

0:11:280:11:32

And at 6:00, I have to be back in Prague.

0:11:350:11:38

You know, this is my bench.

Your bench?

0:13:050:13:06

Yes, I come here every day to read, to this same bench.

0:13:060:13:10

Isn't that funny?

0:13:100:13:12

Yes.

0:13:130:13:16

What are you reading?

0:13:180:13:20

Anna Karenina, by Tolstoy.

0:13:200:13:21

Oh, yes,

0:13:230:13:25

that Anna Karenina.

0:13:250:13:27

Yeah.

0:13:270:13:28

I would have come earlier, but...my mother...

0:13:320:13:36

You live with your mother?

0:13:360:13:38

Well, I've checked out of my room.

0:13:480:13:51

Are you leaving?

0:13:510:13:52

Yes, it's getting late.

0:13:520:13:54

I just came for an operation.

0:13:560:13:59

A colleague of mine was supposed to come,

0:13:590:14:01

but he injured himself, so...

0:14:010:14:04

Well...

0:14:120:14:14

..maybe I'll come back sometime.

0:14:150:14:17

Why would you come back here?

0:14:180:14:20

It's so boring.

0:14:200:14:22

Nobody here reads. Nobody here discusses anything.

0:14:260:14:30

You know what I mean?

0:14:300:14:31

Yes.

0:14:330:14:34

Yes, I do.

Tomas.

0:15:170:15:18

Tomas.

0:15:220:15:23

Are you only searching for pleasure?

0:16:120:16:14

Or is every woman a new land

0:16:170:16:20

whose secrets you want to discover?

0:16:200:16:23

You want to know what she's going to say when she makes love?

0:16:300:16:33

Or how she will smile?

0:16:350:16:39

How she will whisper?

0:16:390:16:41

Groan...scream?

0:16:410:16:42

Maybe the very smallest... unimaginable details...

0:16:480:16:53

Tiny things that make one woman

0:16:570:17:00

totally unlike any other.

0:17:000:17:02

What's my detail, Doctor?

0:17:030:17:05

Your hat, Sabina.

0:17:120:17:13

The hat...

0:17:360:17:37

..comes from my grandfather's...

0:17:420:17:44

grandfather.

0:17:440:17:46

He lived a long, long time ago.

0:17:500:17:54

A long time ago.

0:18:040:18:06

Tomas.

0:18:140:18:15

- Hello. - Hello.

0:19:030:19:05

So...

0:19:080:19:09

you are in Prague.

0:19:090:19:11

I just arrived.

0:19:110:19:13

I have friends to see. I'm here on some business.

0:19:150:19:18

Mm-hmm.

0:19:180:19:20

I'm looking for another job.

0:19:220:19:25

Ha...

0:19:250:19:27

Why don't you come in?

0:19:280:19:29

Are you alone?

0:19:300:19:31

Yeah.

0:19:310:19:33

Take off your clothes.

0:19:550:19:57

Achoo!

0:20:010:20:03

Achoo!

0:20:040:20:05

Excuse me.

0:20:050:20:07

I must have caught a cold on the train.

0:20:090:20:12

Perhaps I better take a look at you.

0:20:120:20:14

Come here.

0:20:140:20:16

My hands cold?

0:20:350:20:37

I'm very ticklish.

0:20:390:20:42

Does it hurt there?

0:20:420:20:43

Look up.

0:20:470:20:48

Down.

0:20:480:20:49

Left.

0:20:490:20:51

Right.

0:20:510:20:53

Ha ha...

0:20:530:20:54

Don't worry.

0:20:590:21:00

I'm a doctor.

0:21:020:21:03

A bit higher.

0:21:070:21:08

That's it.

0:21:100:21:11

Breathe.

0:21:140:21:16

BREATHES DEEPLY

0:21:160:21:19

Again.

0:21:190:21:26

Cough.

0:21:260:21:27

That's fine.

0:21:290:21:31

Up we go.

0:21:350:21:37

Everything looks fine.

0:21:480:21:50

Fine.

0:21:520:21:53

Open your mouth.

0:22:030:22:04

Tongue.

0:22:070:22:08

Ah! Mmm...

0:22:090:22:12

Ooh!

0:22:120:22:13

Mmm! Mm!

0:22:130:22:14

Ah!

0:22:270:22:29

Aah!

0:22:550:22:57

Aah!

0:22:580:23:00

Aah!

0:23:000:23:01

Aah!

RING

0:23:030:23:09

Hi.

0:24:330:24:34

Tomas?

0:24:570:24:59

They called from Geneva. They are still offering you that job.

0:24:590:25:02

Why should I go to Geneva? Everything's fine here.

0:25:020:25:05

Well...I hope so.

0:25:050:25:07

You think the Russians won't interfere?

0:25:090:25:11

Think about what happened in Hungary.

0:25:110:25:13

They couldn't. The world wouldn't allow it.

0:25:130:25:16

Besides, we have socialism with a human face.

0:25:160:25:19

Who could be against it?

0:25:190:25:22

Ah, my patient is here.

0:25:220:25:24

Which one? Pigs are not allowed.

0:25:240:25:27

I told him to wait in the truck.

0:25:270:25:29

But we will make an exception.

0:25:290:25:31

Hello, Doctor. You are not angry with me because I brought Mephisto?

0:25:340:25:38

Look, Doctor, a gift for you.

0:25:380:25:41

Wonderful.

0:25:410:25:42

Oh, thank you! Hmm.

0:25:420:25:44

So...Pavel.

0:25:440:25:46

Ha ha!

0:25:460:25:48

We operated a month ago.

0:25:480:25:50

Yeah.

0:25:500:25:51

- Any pains? - No.

0:25:510:25:53

Dizziness? Headaches?

0:25:530:25:55

No.

0:25:550:25:56

Good. You can get back to your farm.

0:25:560:25:59

We just need a small procedure to replace the bone flap.

0:25:590:26:03

What time shall I expect your visit tonight?

0:26:140:26:17

Ah...

0:26:190:26:20

I'm sorry, I can't make it tonight.

0:26:220:26:24

Too bad.

0:26:240:26:26

Um...how about tomorrow afternoon?

0:26:260:26:30

Tomorrow night.

0:26:300:26:31

So what I heard was right.

0:26:340:26:37

Somebody has moved into your place.

0:26:370:26:38

No.

0:26:380:26:40

I have my spies. Good-bye, Doctor.

0:26:400:26:43

Ah...

0:26:570:26:59

It's not here.

0:27:370:27:39

You must have come without your sock.

0:27:390:27:42

How could I have come without it?

0:27:420:27:43

I wouldn't wear only one sock.

0:27:430:27:45

You've been absent-minded lately, always in a hurry.

0:27:450:27:50

Always looking at your watch.

0:27:500:27:53

I'll lend you one of my stockings.

0:27:570:27:59

You want me to put this on?

0:28:260:28:27

It's cold out, Doctor.

0:28:270:28:29

Mm-hmm.

0:28:320:28:33

You think I'm doing something silly.

0:28:560:28:58

Maybe. How can I know?

0:29:000:29:03

What are we talking about?

0:29:050:29:07

Tereza.

0:29:090:29:10

If I had two lives...

0:29:160:29:18

with one, I'd have her stay at my place.

0:29:180:29:21

With the other, I'd kick her out.

0:29:210:29:23

Then I'd compare and see which was best.

0:29:230:29:26

But we only live once.

0:29:270:29:31

Life's so light...

0:29:320:29:34

like an outline we can't ever...

0:29:340:29:38

fill in...

0:29:380:29:40

or correct...

0:29:400:29:42

make any better.

0:29:420:29:44

It's frightening.

0:29:440:29:45

She's looking for something to do here in Prague, and I...

0:29:450:29:49

Now...

0:29:510:29:53

you want me to help her?

0:29:530:29:57

She is not qualified for anything, but she takes beautiful pictures.

0:29:570:30:01

I was wondering if you might...

0:30:010:30:03

You mean...

0:30:040:30:07

you want me to help you.

0:30:070:30:08

Come on in, Tereza.

0:30:390:30:40

Let's have some tea.

0:30:450:30:47

Yes. Why don't you fix it?

0:30:470:30:49

Yeah, sure.

0:30:510:30:52

Hee hee!

0:30:560:30:57

It's very messy around here.

0:31:110:31:13

I always try not to get too attached to a place,

0:31:130:31:16

to objects.

0:31:160:31:17

Or to people.

0:31:230:31:24

Hmm.

0:31:240:31:26

Tereza, come over here.

0:31:290:31:31

I want to show you some pictures.

0:31:340:31:37

You know Man Ray?

0:31:400:31:42

No.

0:31:420:31:44

I like...

0:31:460:31:48

I like this one very much.

0:31:480:31:51

Mmm.

0:31:520:31:54

This is Lee Miller.

0:31:590:32:03

She's so...

0:32:030:32:05

She's so beautiful.

0:32:060:32:08

Tomas says you're a photographer.

0:32:110:32:13

Well, I like to take pictures, but...

0:32:130:32:16

Take pictures of what's going on in the streets.

0:32:160:32:19

I'll help get them published.

0:32:190:32:20

Thanks, Sabina.

0:32:200:32:22

I love those pictures.

0:32:220:32:26

They were trying something different.

0:32:260:32:29

Searching for a new beauty.

0:32:300:32:33

Yes.

0:32:350:32:36

Something higher.

0:32:390:32:40

Here's the tea I made.

0:32:430:32:45

Aaah. Aaah.

0:33:060:33:07

What is it? Tereza?

0:33:120:33:14

Oh, I had a dream.

0:33:210:33:23

I was at her place.

0:33:330:33:34

Sabina's.

0:33:360:33:38

In her studio...

0:33:380:33:40

and you were making love to her.

0:33:400:33:42

In that big bed of hers.

0:33:450:33:47

You made me stand by a wall

0:33:510:33:54

and not move at all.

0:33:540:33:55

You made me watch.

0:33:570:33:59

And I had such pain from seeing you

0:34:080:34:12

that I started to pierce needles under my fingernails

0:34:120:34:16

to stop the pain in my heart.

0:34:160:34:18

It hurt so much.

0:34:190:34:21

Why did you do it to me?

0:34:240:34:26

It was just a dream.

0:34:310:34:33

Try to sleep.

0:34:400:34:42

Try to sleep.

0:34:420:34:44

I can't sleep.

0:34:440:34:45

Yes, you can. Come here.

0:34:450:34:46

I can't fall asleep.

0:34:480:34:49

You can sleep.

0:34:550:34:56

Sleep in my arms.

0:34:560:34:57

Like a baby bird.

0:35:030:35:05

Like a broom...

0:35:100:35:12

among brooms...

0:35:120:35:15

in a broom closet.

0:35:150:35:18

Like a tiny parrot.

0:35:260:35:28

Like a whistle.

0:35:330:35:35

Like a little song.

0:35:370:35:39

A song sung by a forest...

0:35:430:35:47

within a forest...

0:35:470:35:49

..a thousand years ago.

0:37:280:37:30

Congratulations!

0:37:300:37:31

They're really great!

0:37:320:37:34

Tereza, this is my colleague Jiri,

0:37:350:37:37

and this is the chief.

0:37:370:37:38

- I'm pleased. - Hello.

0:37:380:37:40

Wonderful! You've really captured a new spirit here.

0:37:410:37:46

You can see how everything is changing.

0:37:480:37:50

Not everything. Look over there.

0:37:500:37:53

Our comrades with the Russians.

0:37:530:37:55

Some people never change.

0:37:570:37:59

Some people are always scoundrels.

0:37:590:38:02

How can you tell?

0:38:030:38:04

Does it show in a man's face?

0:38:040:38:08

Can we judge by a man's face

0:38:090:38:10

if he is a scoundrel or not?

0:38:100:38:12

Let's look at them and see.

0:38:120:38:14

Scoundrel.

0:38:190:38:20

- Scoundrel. - Scoundrel.

0:38:200:38:23

Scoundrel.

0:38:230:38:25

Scoundrel.

0:38:250:38:26

- Scoundrel. - Scoundrel.

0:38:270:38:29

- Definitely. - No doubt.

0:38:290:38:31

We know you.

0:38:330:38:35

Scoundrels.

0:38:350:38:37

What would you say about Tomas?

0:38:410:38:42

Hmmm.

0:38:440:38:45

He's definitely scoundrel.

0:38:450:38:47

Why?

0:38:470:38:48

Why?

0:38:490:38:50

Is it the mouth?

0:38:520:38:53

The sly eyes?

0:38:550:38:57

No, it's carefully hidden...

0:38:570:38:59

in the brain.

0:38:590:39:00

Such things are hidden in all of our brains.

0:39:000:39:04

So what makes the difference?

0:39:040:39:06

Maybe only one millionth part.

0:39:060:39:09

Maybe there is no difference.

0:39:090:39:11

These men don't even know if they're scoundrels or not.

0:39:110:39:14

Are you serious?

0:39:250:39:28

More than 100,000 people were imprisoned, tortured,

0:39:280:39:32

executed in their regime.

0:39:320:39:33

And now, these men cry out

0:39:330:39:36

that they didn't know anything...

0:39:360:39:39

that they were misled or manipulated.

0:39:390:39:44

That they were...innocent.

0:39:440:39:47

Not innocent,

0:39:470:39:48

but, um...

0:39:480:39:50

unaware, perhaps.

0:39:500:39:52

They had to know what they were doing.

0:39:520:39:55

Otherwise, it's unthinkable.

0:39:550:39:57

It doesn't matter whether they knew or not.

0:39:570:40:00

BAND PLAYS: "The Internationale"

THEY SING IN RUSSIAN

0:40:230:40:27

I've been thinking about Oedipus.

0:40:290:40:32

Good King Oedipus.

0:40:320:40:33

Is sleeping with your mother the same sort of crime?

0:40:330:40:36

When Oedipus realized that he had killed his father

0:40:390:40:42

unknowingly...

0:40:420:40:45

unknowingly killed his father...

0:40:450:40:47

and was sleeping with his mother...

0:40:470:40:50

and that because of his crimes

0:40:500:40:52

plagues were ravaging his city,

0:40:520:40:56

he couldn't bear the sight of what he'd done.

0:40:560:40:59

He plucked out his own eyes and left.

0:40:590:41:02

He did not feel innocent.

0:41:030:41:05

He felt he had to punish himself.

0:41:050:41:08

But...

0:41:080:41:10

our leaders, unlike Oedipus,

0:41:100:41:12

they felt they were innocent.

0:41:120:41:14

And when the atrocities of the Stalinist period became known,

0:41:150:41:20

they cried, "We didn't know!

0:41:200:41:22

"We weren't aware of what was going on. Our conscience is clear."

0:41:220:41:25

But the important difference is...

0:41:250:41:28

they stayed in power.

0:41:330:41:36

And they should have plucked their eyes out.

0:41:360:41:41

All I'm saying is that

0:41:420:41:44

morality has changed since Oedipus.

0:41:440:41:47

MUSIC BECOMES JAZZIER

0:41:470:41:50

Come on.

0:42:260:42:27

Yes!

0:42:280:42:29

Why don't you write it down?

0:42:300:42:32

I'm not a writer.

0:42:320:42:33

It will be published. Our politics are in it.

0:42:330:42:38

I don't really care about politics.

0:42:380:42:41

What do you care about?

0:42:450:42:47

Is something bothering you?

0:43:120:43:14

No, why?

0:43:140:43:15

What's wrong?

0:43:210:43:23

Nothing.

0:43:230:43:25

No...

0:43:250:43:26

When I watched you dancing with another man...

0:43:260:43:30

I thought to myself, "He could be her lover."

0:43:320:43:35

You are jealous.

0:43:370:43:39

No, I'm not jealous.

0:43:410:43:42

You are.

0:43:420:43:44

I'm not.

0:43:450:43:46

I'm not jealous, Tereza.

0:43:460:43:48

He's jealous.

0:43:480:43:49

No, he isn't. Who's he?

0:43:490:43:51

He's jealous.

0:43:510:43:52

I'm not jealous.

0:43:520:43:54

He's jealous, he's jealous

0:43:540:43:56

Whatever you say, Tereza.

0:43:560:43:58

You're jealous.

0:43:580:43:59

I'm not.

0:43:590:44:01

Yes, you are.

0:44:010:44:02

You're jealous.

0:44:020:44:03

I'm not jealous.

0:44:030:44:04

You're jealous.

0:44:040:44:05

Doo be doo be doo be doo!

0:44:050:44:08

No!

0:44:080:44:10

You are!

0:44:100:44:12

I'm not.

0:44:120:44:13

You are!

0:44:130:44:14

Let go!

0:44:140:44:15

I won't let go! You're jealous!

0:44:150:44:18

You are!

0:44:180:44:19

I'm not!

0:44:190:44:20

No! No! No!

0:44:210:44:23

No! No! No! Ha ha ha ha!

0:44:230:44:27

Will you marry me?

0:44:270:44:28

What? No!

0:44:280:44:30

No!

0:44:300:44:32

Yes!

0:44:320:44:33

- No. - Yes.

0:44:330:44:35

- No. - Yes.

0:44:350:44:37

Yes? Ha!

0:44:370:44:38

Be my witness?

0:44:380:44:40

Of course!

0:44:400:44:41

I'll have to buy Mephisto a black tie.

0:44:410:44:45

Did you hear, Mephisto? A black tie.

0:44:450:44:47

My dear fiances,

0:44:500:44:51

I am welcoming you

0:44:510:44:53

from the deep bottom of my heart

0:44:530:44:56

on this very special day

0:44:560:44:59

when you freely decided to be legally man and wife.

0:44:590:45:04

I suppose that both of you know your duties

0:45:060:45:10

in supporting each other,

0:45:100:45:13

and I am sure both of you know

0:45:130:45:16

your own medical records?

0:45:160:45:18

I have to tell you this.

0:45:190:45:21

Don't think a life is a walk on a sunny meadow.

0:45:210:45:26

Life isn't a walk on a sunny meadow,

0:45:260:45:30

and life isn't a walk on a rose garden.

0:45:300:45:34

Our socialist country has done much for you.

0:45:340:45:40

Now it's up to you.

No...no.

0:45:530:45:55

SQUEALING

0:45:550:45:56

Shh!

0:45:560:45:59

You are laughing at me?

0:45:590:46:00

I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

0:46:020:46:04

SQUEALING

0:46:040:46:07

I refuse to go on.

0:46:070:46:09

In this country, is nothing sacred anymore?

0:46:090:46:12

If you can't be serious, you don't deserve to be married!

When I first met you,

0:47:350:47:37

you were reading Tolstoy.

0:47:370:47:40

It can't be Tolstoy.

0:47:420:47:43

It's a girl.

0:47:430:47:45

It's a girl!

0:47:450:47:47

How about Anna Karenina?

0:47:470:47:49

It doesn't look at all like Anna Karenina.

0:47:520:47:55

Look. It's a man's face.

0:47:550:47:57

It looks more like Anna's husband.

0:47:570:48:00

Let's call her Karenin.

0:48:020:48:04

Karenin.

0:48:260:48:28

Come on, Karenin. Let's go home.

0:48:280:48:30

Heh heh heh...

0:48:380:48:40

I like it very much.

King Oedipus.

0:48:490:48:50

It's a very good idea.

0:48:510:48:54

And with those changes, we can publish next week.

0:48:540:48:58

Eva, will you type this, please?

0:48:580:49:01

Now we can publish a piece like this.

0:49:100:49:13

It's fantastic. Think about it.

0:49:130:49:16

Complete rehabilitation of the people who were prosecuted.

0:49:160:49:19

Complete freedom of speech, of the press,

0:49:190:49:22

emancipation from the Russians.

0:49:220:49:24

That's all we wanted.

0:49:240:49:26

And you think the Russians will let us emancipate?

0:49:260:49:31

What can they do?

0:49:310:49:33

Nothing, Doctor.

0:49:330:49:35

Nothing, nothing, nothing!

0:49:350:49:37

To the other women.

0:52:370:52:39

Take me to them when you make love to them.

0:52:440:52:48

I'll undress them for you.

0:52:480:52:49

I'd like to.

0:52:510:52:53

Really.

0:52:550:52:56

I'll give them a bath and bring them to you.

0:52:590:53:02

I'll do anything you like.

0:53:020:53:05

Other women's bodies will be our playthings.

0:53:060:53:09

Tereza, what are you talking about?

0:53:140:53:16

I know you see other women.

0:53:190:53:21

I know it!

0:53:210:53:22

You can't hide it from me.

0:53:220:53:24

Every day, I try to tell myself,

0:53:330:53:35

"Well, it's nothing."

0:53:350:53:38

"It's not important.

0:53:400:53:43

"He's just playing around. He can't resist it.

0:53:430:53:46

"But he loves me. I'm sure about that.

0:53:460:53:49

"He loves me."

0:53:490:53:52

"He loves me!"

0:53:520:53:54

But I can't stand it.

0:53:580:54:00

I tried hard.

0:54:000:54:01

I just can't.

0:54:010:54:03

Take me to them. Don't leave me alone!

0:54:030:54:06

Tereza, calm down.

0:54:060:54:08

Stop talking. Try to sleep.

0:54:080:54:10

You need some sleep now.

0:54:100:54:11

I don't want to sleep.

0:54:110:54:14

The invasion of our country

1:06:141:06:18

constitutes a clear act of aggression

1:06:181:06:22

against an independent country.

1:06:221:06:24

Our Czech people had the right and the duty

1:06:241:06:28

to fight against the aggressor.

1:06:281:06:32

People who don't have the courage to fight

1:06:321:06:35

with arms in their hands

1:06:351:06:37

do not deserve freedom.

1:06:371:06:39

So why did you emigrate?

1:06:391:06:42

Go back and fight.

1:06:421:06:44

It's easy to tell other people to fight.

1:06:441:06:47

1:06:531:06:55

"What did you do against the communist regime?"

1:06:551:06:59

Excuse me.

1:07:091:07:10

Excuse me.

1:07:111:07:13

I wanted to ask you something.

1:07:131:07:15

Well, what do you want to ask?

1:07:161:07:18

Why did you do that back there?

1:07:181:07:21

Why do you want to know? Who are you?

1:07:211:07:24

My name is Franz.

1:07:241:07:26

I came to that meeting to listen.

1:07:271:07:29

No, no, I'm not from the police. I'm a professor at the university.

1:07:311:07:35

I have nothing in common with these people.

1:07:421:07:45

The only things holding them together are defeats

1:07:451:07:48

and the reproaches they address to one another.

1:07:481:07:50

It's hard to be in exile.

1:07:501:07:53

People feel abandoned. They feel a lack of understanding.

1:07:531:07:56

They feel at a loss, lonely.

1:07:561:07:59

Your country's occupied. Are you indifferent to that?

1:07:591:08:02

I can't stand pointing fingers and raised fists.

1:08:021:08:05

So what do you want to do?

1:08:051:08:07

I want to go to lunch. I'm hungry.

1:08:141:08:16

MUSIC PLAYS FAINTLY

1:08:191:08:22

Ha ha ha!

1:08:261:08:28

When I was a student in Paris,

1:08:311:08:34

I liked the demonstrations, the marches, the crowds, the shouting.

1:08:341:08:37

I liked to be part of it.

1:08:371:08:40

The whole world looked like a grand march

1:08:401:08:43

ever onward to a better world.

1:08:431:08:45

Me, too. I marched every year.

1:08:461:08:49

Really?

1:08:491:08:50

Yes, but I was forced to march.

1:08:501:08:53

Everybody was.

1:08:531:08:54

The May Day parade the girls dressed the same.

1:08:541:08:57

Everybody smiling, everybody throwing flowers.

1:08:571:09:01

Mmm.

1:09:011:09:02

I could never keep in step.

1:09:051:09:07

The girls behind me would step on my heels.

1:09:071:09:10

Ha ha ha!

1:09:101:09:12

What happened to your country is a tragedy.

1:09:211:09:23

You think so?

1:09:231:09:25

Of course. There was hope.

1:09:251:09:28

They killed it.

1:09:281:09:30

You're not going to become boring, are you?

1:09:301:09:33

Waiter?

1:09:371:09:39

- Can you stop that noise? - Noise?

1:09:441:09:46

Yes, what you call music.

1:09:481:09:51

I'll have to ask the manager.

1:09:511:09:53

Everywhere music's turning into noise.

1:09:551:09:58

Look.

1:10:001:10:02

These plastic flowers...

1:10:021:10:05

they even put them in water.

1:10:051:10:07

Ha ha ha!

1:10:071:10:08

And look out there.

1:10:081:10:11

Those buildings,

1:10:121:10:14

the uglification of the world.

1:10:141:10:17

The only place we can find beauty

1:10:171:10:21

is if its persecutors have overlooked it.

1:10:211:10:23

It's a planetary process...

1:10:271:10:29

..and I can't stand it.

1:10:311:10:33

Is anything wrong?

1:10:361:10:38

Wrong? No. Everything is fine.

1:10:381:10:41

Well, it's just that noise.

1:10:431:10:45

Could you stop it?

1:10:451:10:47

It sounds like dirty water.

1:10:471:10:50

I'm sorry, sir.

1:10:501:10:51

The other customers do like this noise.

1:10:511:10:54

How can they eat food and listen to shit?

1:10:551:10:58

Well, in that case,

1:11:031:11:04

we'll look for a place with better taste.

1:11:041:11:09

Thank you.

1:11:121:11:15

Well...

1:11:231:11:24

I hope you didn't mind leaving that place.

1:11:241:11:27

Just the opposite.

1:11:271:11:29

I like to leave places.

1:11:291:11:30

I like to leave.

1:11:331:11:34

So...

1:11:361:11:37

I hope you're not having a bad time.

1:11:391:11:41

Oh, not at all, no.

1:11:411:11:43

I have a train to catch in an hour.

1:11:431:11:46

You travel by train?

1:11:461:11:48

Always.

1:11:491:11:51

I love trains.

1:11:511:11:53

They are so erotic.

1:11:531:11:54

By the way, my wife owns an art gallery.

1:12:251:12:28

Maybe she could help you.

1:12:281:12:29

Oh, you are married?

1:12:301:12:32

Yes.

1:12:341:12:35

Watch out!

1:12:441:12:47

Be careful.

1:12:471:12:49

WHIMPERS

1:13:581:14:04

Ahem.

1:14:081:14:09

Well, welcome to Geneva.

1:14:121:14:14

Well, that's good work,

1:14:191:14:21

but it's too late.

1:14:211:14:24

Russians in Prague,

1:14:241:14:25

We've seen these everywhere.

1:14:251:14:27

The events are too remote now.

1:14:271:14:29

It's over.

1:14:291:14:32

But there, nothing is over.

1:14:321:14:34

Everybody. Everybody still demands that the Russians leave.

1:14:341:14:38

There are strikes all over the country, and protests,

1:14:381:14:43

but here, nobody seems to care anymore.

1:14:431:14:47

Here's the story about the nudists in France.

1:14:481:14:51

Oh, thank you.

1:14:511:14:52

Wait. Just have a look, superb photographs of Prague.

1:14:531:14:57

It's a pity we're just getting them now.

1:14:571:14:59

TELEPHONE RINGS

1:14:591:15:02

Have a look at mine.

1:15:021:15:04

They have nothing to do with yours.

1:15:041:15:06

Not at all.

1:15:191:15:20

They are the same.

1:15:201:15:22

Nothing's wrong with the body.

1:15:231:15:25

It's normal...

1:15:251:15:28

and everything normal is beautiful.

1:15:281:15:30

You have a terrific sense of the female body.

1:15:331:15:36

These provocative poses.

1:15:381:15:41

You'd be a top-notch fashion photographer.

1:15:411:15:44

You ought to get a model,

1:15:441:15:45

make a portfolio for agencies.

1:15:451:15:48

I'll introduce you to the editor of our garden section.

1:15:481:15:52

Yeah, sure.

1:15:521:15:54

They always need shots of cactuses and roses.

1:15:541:15:57

Cactuses?

1:15:571:15:59

No.

1:16:001:16:01

You're too kind, really,

1:16:011:16:03

but I'd rather be a waitress or stay home.

1:16:031:16:07

But will you be fulfilled sitting at home?

1:16:151:16:18

What am I going to do,

1:16:191:16:21

take pictures of naked women?

1:16:211:16:25

Why does everybody want to see pictures of naked women?

1:16:301:16:33

Are they that interesting?

1:16:351:16:37

Hmm?

1:16:371:16:39

Blah!

1:16:551:16:57

See you later.

1:16:591:17:01

Are you working this afternoon?

1:17:011:17:04

Yes, I'll be back late. Will you be all right?

1:17:041:17:07

Yes, I suppose so.

1:17:071:17:08

Good.

1:17:131:17:14

Come with me to Amsterdam in two days.

1:18:211:18:23

I've seen Amsterdam.

1:18:231:18:26

You have?

1:18:261:18:27

A friend of mine sent me a post card from there.

1:18:281:18:32

It's taped up over my toilet.

1:18:321:18:35

Haven't you noticed?

1:18:351:18:36

Tell me, Franz...

1:18:411:18:43

why do you always take me to another city?

1:18:431:18:46

Why won't you make love to me in Geneva?

1:18:461:18:49

I told you.

1:18:491:18:50

Tell me again.

1:18:501:18:51

Because I couldn't go to bed with my wife.

1:18:521:18:55

You couldn't go from one bed to another?

1:18:551:18:58

- That's right. - Why?

1:18:581:19:00

I feel it would be humiliating to my wife,

1:19:021:19:05

to me, and to you.

1:19:051:19:07

It might seem ridiculous, but that's the way it is.

1:19:091:19:13

I have to go.

1:19:141:19:16

Say you'll come with me.

1:19:191:19:21

I'll come with you.

1:19:241:19:25

It's good to see you.

1:20:291:20:30

How are you?

1:20:381:20:39

Fine.

1:20:401:20:41

I'm fine.

1:20:431:20:44

- Did Tereza come with you? - Of course.

1:20:471:20:49

Good. How is she?

1:20:491:20:52

She's...so-so. She's OK.

1:20:521:20:54

She's looking for a job.

1:20:541:20:56

Good. I'd like to see her sometime.

1:20:591:21:01

Of course. What about you?

1:21:011:21:04

Fine.

1:21:041:21:05

I'm fine.

1:21:051:21:07

Good.

1:21:071:21:08

I met another man.

1:21:081:21:09

He's the best man I've ever met.

1:21:121:21:14

Ha ha ha! Oh.

1:21:141:21:16

He's bright, handsome, good...

1:21:181:21:20

And he's crazy about me.

1:21:241:21:26

Good.

1:21:261:21:27

And he's married.

1:21:271:21:28

Good.

1:21:281:21:29

There's only one thing.

1:21:311:21:33

He doesn't like my hat.

1:21:371:21:38

Your hat.

1:21:451:21:46

Your hat makes me want to cry, Sabina.

1:21:491:21:52

So...

1:22:051:22:06

I'll call you.

1:22:081:22:09

I'll see you soon.

Some woman said that I should do some...

3:00:213:00:25

..some nude shots.

3:00:263:00:28

Nude shots?

3:00:283:00:30

Yeah, nude shots.

3:00:303:00:32

For that,

3:00:363:00:38

we'd better have a drink first.

Tereza, meet Franz.

3:10:233:10:25

Ah!

3:10:283:10:30

She's a friend from Prague,

3:10:303:10:32

another crazy chick.

3:10:323:10:33

Ha ha!

3:10:333:10:34

She's modelling for me.

3:10:343:10:36

Or I am for her, or something.

3:10:363:10:40

I've left her.

3:10:403:10:42

What?

3:10:463:10:47

I've left my wife.

3:10:483:10:51

I've left my wife.

3:10:533:10:55

What did she say?

3:10:563:10:58

"Don't forget your tuxedo."

3:11:003:11:02

She even helped me pack.

3:11:023:11:05

We're still friends, I think.

3:11:053:11:06

I have to go home to get some more things,

3:11:063:11:10

my books, my tuxedo...

3:11:103:11:12

and I want to make sure she's all right.

3:11:123:11:15

We didn't argue.

3:11:153:11:17

I know you agree.

3:11:173:11:20

We have to live in a glass house with no secrets.

3:11:203:11:25

We couldn't live in lies anymore. We have to live in truth.

3:11:253:11:29

Sabina, would you mind if I stayed here for a while?

3:11:293:11:35

If it's no imposition.

3:11:353:11:38

Until I get my bearings.

3:11:393:11:41

If it's all right, I'll... I'll come back tomorrow...

3:11:463:11:50

and, uh...

3:11:503:11:52

Oh...

3:12:063:12:08

Oh, God.

Goodbye, Tereza.

3:12:473:12:49

See you again, I'm sure.

3:12:493:12:51

Listen, Tereza...

3:13:103:13:12

I want you to leave now.

3:13:223:13:25

I have things I must do.

3:13:253:13:28

Sabina?

3:13:483:13:49

Maybe I should have stayed.

3:15:053:15:08

Stop running.

3:15:093:15:11

Stop leaving.

3:15:133:15:15

Franz was such a good man.

3:15:193:15:21

So...

3:15:213:15:22

..what are you going to do now?

3:15:253:15:27

Leave.

3:15:273:15:29

Ha ha ha ha...

3:15:293:15:31

Ah, Sabina.

3:15:333:15:34

I don't know. I'll go to... Paris, maybe.

3:15:353:15:42

Or to America.

3:15:453:15:47

Come to me.

3:15:483:15:50

You want to see America?

3:15:593:16:02

Hmm?

3:16:043:16:06

Sometime.

3:16:083:16:09

Maybe I'm seeing you for the last time.

3:16:243:16:28

Maybe.

"I'm your weight.

"Life is very heavy to me,

3:17:253:17:28

"and it is so light to you."

3:17:283:17:30

"I can't bear this lightness, this freedom.

3:17:343:17:36

"I'm not strong enough.

3:17:363:17:39

"In Prague,

3:17:393:17:42

"I only needed you for love.

"In Switzerland,

3:17:443:17:46

"I was dependent on you for everything.

3:17:463:17:51

"What would happen if you abandoned me?"

3:17:513:17:55

"I'm weak.

3:17:563:17:59

"I'm going back to the country of the weak.

Yes, I'd almost forgotten.

3:26:303:26:32

Well, they haven't.

3:26:343:26:36

They've prepared this little letter...

3:26:383:26:41

sort of retraction.

3:26:413:26:43

Say you got it wrong, you really didn't understand...

3:26:433:26:46

You sign. That's all.

Don't misunderstand. They're not asking for a public declaration.

3:26:513:26:56

They're just prudent bureaucrats.

3:26:563:26:59

They've given me their word.

3:26:593:27:01

They won't publish anything.

3:27:013:27:04

I need you, Tomas.

3:27:053:27:09

I hope I can keep you.

3:27:113:27:13

You're not a writer, saviour of the country.

3:27:133:27:17

You're a doctor. A scientist.

3:27:173:27:20

This article's so terribly important to you?

3:27:223:27:25

It couldn't be less important.

3:27:273:27:29

- Hi, Tomas. - Hi.

3:27:533:27:56

Tomas.

3:28:023:28:05

Hello, Jiri!

3:28:053:28:07

It's nice to see you back. How are you?

3:28:073:28:10

Thanks, fine.

3:28:103:28:12

So...are you going to sign the...thing?

3:28:123:28:17

What thing?

3:28:173:28:19

Mmm...your, um...

3:28:193:28:22

retraction.

3:28:223:28:24

What do you know about my retraction?

3:28:263:28:29

Have you read it?

3:28:303:28:32

No.

3:28:323:28:34

But you know how things work.

3:28:343:28:38

Who told you I had agreed to go along with it?

3:28:403:28:43

See you.

3:28:503:28:51

Ha ha ha ha...

3:28:513:28:53

I suppose a lot of them have signed these letters.

3:29:133:29:17

They're kept on file.

3:29:173:29:19

They know they can be published at any moment,

3:29:193:29:22

so they keep quiet, see?

3:29:223:29:26

They can't say anything anymore.

3:29:263:29:29

They accept everything.

3:29:293:29:30

Cowardice slowly becomes a rule of life.

3:29:333:29:37

Yes, I have the feeling

3:29:393:29:41

that everyone would be very happy to see me sign.

3:29:413:29:44

Everyone... everyone but me.

3:29:443:29:47

So...what can I do for you?

3:30:313:30:34

There is nothing you can do for me, Doctor.

3:30:363:30:40

I represent the Ministry of the Interior.

3:30:403:30:45

Everybody at the Ministry regrets seeing you here.

3:30:483:30:52

You are one of our best brain specialists.

3:30:523:30:56

Just between us,

3:30:563:30:57

maybe I shouldn't say it,

3:30:573:31:00

we don't all agree with the drastic tactics

3:31:003:31:03

that are removing our top specialists from their posts.

3:31:033:31:08

One can only be sorry about all this.

3:31:103:31:13

May I?

3:31:153:31:17

Please.

3:31:173:31:18

You had a very good position in Geneva,

3:31:213:31:24

and you came back to our country.

3:31:243:31:26

We very much appreciate your having returned,

3:31:263:31:29

but your place is at the operating table.

3:31:293:31:32

I couldn't agree more.

3:31:323:31:34

Everybody agrees.

3:31:343:31:36

Then... tell me, Doctor...

3:31:363:31:39

do you really think

3:31:393:31:42

that communists should pluck out their own eyes?

3:31:423:31:45

You, who have healed so many people?

3:31:473:31:50

That wasn't what I meant.

3:31:503:31:52

But that's how everyone understood it.

3:31:523:31:54

And we can only regret it.

3:31:543:31:57

How can you let people think

3:31:573:32:00

that you, a doctor,

3:32:003:32:03

want to deprive human beings of their right to see?

3:32:033:32:07

Maybe someone inspired this article?

3:32:093:32:11

No, no-one.

3:32:113:32:13

Did you know the publishers?

3:32:133:32:14

No.

3:32:143:32:16

- You never spoke? - Once, they asked me over to discuss the article.

3:32:163:32:21

Who was it you talked to?

3:32:213:32:23

One of the editors.

3:32:233:32:24

What was his name?

3:32:243:32:26

I don't remember.

3:32:383:32:41

I've no idea.

3:32:413:32:43

What did he look like?

3:32:473:32:49

I can't remember.

3:32:493:32:51

Tell me the truth, Doctor.

3:32:513:32:54

He was tall...

3:32:573:32:58

with...short, blond hair.

3:32:583:33:02

A little stooped, hmm?

3:33:093:33:11

Perhaps.

3:33:123:33:14

And how did he react?

3:33:143:33:17

What did he say exactly?

3:33:173:33:19

He asked me to make some changes.

3:33:193:33:22

So...

3:33:223:33:24

you might have been manipulated, Doctor.

3:33:243:33:30

Used.

3:33:313:33:33

Whether you meant to or not,

3:33:333:33:35

your article contributed to

3:33:353:33:37

the anti-communist hysteria.

3:33:373:33:39

Nobody requires a doctor to understand politics.

3:33:413:33:45

Of course, we can't allow a politically suspicious man

3:33:513:33:56

to operate on brains.

3:33:563:33:59

We have here another declaration.

3:34:033:34:07

I would advise you to sign.

3:34:093:34:12

"This temporary error..."

3:34:203:34:22

"..due to bad influences from so-called intellectuals..."

3:34:233:34:27

"..doesn't in any way put in doubt

3:34:293:34:32

"my faithfulness to the Communist Party

3:34:323:34:35

"or my admiration for the Soviet Union."

3:34:353:34:38

Of course, Doctor, it's only a proposition,

3:34:383:34:41

a first draft.

3:34:413:34:43

If there is something you want to change...

3:34:433:34:46

after all, it's your statement.

3:34:463:34:47

Just a paper to keep in their files.

3:34:513:34:53

It's nothing.

3:34:533:34:54

Just in case someone reproaches them

3:34:543:34:56

for letting you work here.

3:34:563:34:59

Good evening, Excellency.

3:36:183:36:20

Why do they call him Excellency?

3:36:283:36:31

He was an ambassador in Vienna...before.

3:36:313:36:34

Oh.

3:36:343:36:35

Give me a cognac.

3:36:493:36:52

Ah. Ha.

3:36:553:36:56

- Are you 18? - Yes.

3:36:563:36:59

May I see your identification card?

3:36:593:37:03

Haaa.

3:37:073:37:08

Ugh! Drunk.

3:37:083:37:10

Give me a drink.

3:37:113:37:13

Give me a drink.

3:37:173:37:18

All right.

3:37:203:37:23

You have beautiful legs!

3:37:233:37:25

I watched you in the street.

3:37:273:37:29

Ugh.

3:37:393:37:41

Ow!

3:37:533:37:56

Stay here. I want to look at you.

3:37:563:37:58

I love you!

3:37:583:38:00

Ohhh!

3:38:003:38:03

Tsk, tsk, tsk.

3:38:033:38:05

Madame.

3:38:263:38:27

You have no right to serve alcohol to minors.

3:38:273:38:31

That was lemonade.

3:38:313:38:33

Do you think I did not see

3:38:333:38:36

what else you put into his lemonade?

3:38:363:38:38

What are you talking about?

3:38:383:38:41

I've been watching you for some time now.

3:38:413:38:44

Then be grateful you're watching a beauty,

3:38:443:38:47

and keep your mouth shut.

3:38:473:38:49

You stay out of this.

3:38:493:38:51

What business is it of yours?

3:38:513:38:54

And what business is it of yours, my friend?

3:38:563:38:59

Well...

3:39:033:39:05

Thanks.

3:39:193:39:20

Don't mention it.

3:39:223:39:23

That man comes here all the time.

3:39:233:39:26

He's...

3:39:263:39:28

He's terribly unpleasant.

3:39:283:39:30

Promise me you won't think about him anymore.

3:39:303:39:34

I promise.

3:39:353:39:37

I like hearing you make me promises.

3:39:393:39:41

What is a beautiful girl like you doing in this terrible part of Prague?

3:39:433:39:47

What are you doing here?

3:39:473:39:49

I'm living here. I'm an engineer.

3:39:493:39:53

I just stopped here by chance.

3:39:533:39:56

I live very near here.

3:40:043:40:06

TAPPING

3:40:503:40:52

You're a doctor, aren't you?

3:40:523:40:54

Yes.

3:40:543:40:56

May I see you for a moment?

3:40:563:40:57

I have windows to do.

3:40:573:40:59

Oh, don't worry about it.

3:40:593:41:01

Come.

3:41:013:41:03

Come in.

3:41:033:41:04

Don't worry about the window.

3:41:083:41:11

I'll tell them all the work has been done.

3:41:113:41:14

A glass of wine?

3:41:163:41:18

Thank you. That would be very nice.

3:41:203:41:22

Sit down.

3:41:223:41:24

I've heard so much about you.

3:41:323:41:34

When I saw you, I said to myself,

3:41:343:41:37

"What a coincidence."

3:41:373:41:40

"He's the one who can help me."

3:41:403:41:42

Of course, I'll pay for the consultation.

3:41:423:41:45

I've had a pain in my back

3:41:473:41:50

for a few months,

3:41:503:41:53

and I would like to get your opinion about it.

3:41:533:41:56

Take off your clothes.

3:42:103:42:12

Everything?

3:42:353:42:37

Everything.

3:42:373:42:39

It's, uh...

3:43:373:43:40

here.

3:43:403:43:41

SNIFFING

3:44:043:44:06

SOBBING

3:44:153:44:17

What's the matter?

3:44:203:44:22

Tell me what's wrong.

3:44:243:44:26

What's wrong?

3:44:263:44:27

What's wrong?

3:44:293:44:31

You forgot to wash your hair.

3:44:313:44:33

What are you talking about, Tereza?

3:44:333:44:35

Your hair smells of a...

3:44:373:44:40

What?

3:44:413:44:43

Of another woman's sex!

3:44:433:44:45

I thought you had come back here for me.

3:44:513:44:55

I did come back here for you, Tereza.

3:44:553:44:57

Then why do you keep seeing other women?

3:44:573:45:02

- I don't know what to say to you. - I know, I know.

3:45:023:45:05

You've explained it a thousand times.

3:45:053:45:09

A thousand times.

3:45:093:45:10

There is love and there is sex,

3:45:113:45:13

and sex is entertainment, like football.

3:45:133:45:17

I know it's light.

3:45:173:45:18

I wish I could believe you, but...

3:45:213:45:23

How can someone make love without being in love?

3:45:233:45:27

I just don't know.

3:45:273:45:28

Let me try.

3:45:323:45:33

Oh, no.

3:45:353:45:37

You'd reject me if I tried.

3:45:383:45:40

I wish I could be like you...

3:45:443:45:47

..insensitive...

3:45:483:45:50

..strong...

3:45:523:45:54

Strong.

3:45:563:45:57

VOICES ARGUING IN CZECH

3:46:013:46:04

Oh, hello.

3:46:453:46:46

I just tried...

3:46:463:46:48

Come in.

3:46:483:46:49

It's a very simple place.

3:46:533:46:55

- I hope you don't mind. - No, not at all.

3:46:553:46:59

All these books are yours?

3:46:593:47:02

Yes.

3:47:023:47:04

What do you want to drink?

3:47:043:47:06

- Anything. - Wine?

3:47:063:47:08

No. Coffee?

3:47:083:47:09

OK. I'll go fix some.

3:47:093:47:12

Shall I take your coat?

3:47:453:47:48

Yes.

3:47:483:47:49

Sit down.

3:47:553:47:57

Thank you.

3:47:573:47:58

I'm very glad you came here.

3:48:093:48:10

I didn't want to come here.

3:48:163:48:18

Of course not.

3:48:203:48:22

CREAKING

3:48:363:48:38

CREAKING

3:48:413:48:42

There is somebody here,

3:48:423:48:45

behind that curtain.

3:48:453:48:47

You're being silly.

3:48:513:48:52

Draw aside the curtain.

3:48:523:48:55

I told you, you're being silly.

3:48:553:48:57

So why don't you draw aside the curtain, please?

3:48:573:49:02

Look. Nothing.

3:49:243:49:27

And over here.

3:49:273:49:29

I can feel that you want it.

3:50:203:50:22

What are you looking at?

3:50:553:50:57

But be careful.

3:52:033:52:05

It was very well set up,

3:52:063:52:09

a young, provocative drunkard,

3:52:093:52:12

then the other one,

3:52:123:52:15

the one who attacked you.

3:52:153:52:18

Then the third one, who gained your confidence

3:52:183:52:21

just because he took your side.

3:52:213:52:27

The engineer?

3:52:273:52:29

The so-called engineer.

3:52:293:52:32

Why do you look afraid?

3:52:343:52:37

You have nothing to be afraid of.

3:52:373:52:39

But I went to see him...

3:52:393:52:40

..at his place,

3:52:423:52:44

with my dog and a friend.

3:52:443:52:48

He offered us some...some coffee.

3:52:483:52:50

How do you know it was his place?

3:52:503:52:54

They have a lot of places they can use.

3:52:543:52:58

Pretty cheap place for an engineer.

3:53:023:53:04

You know what they do

3:53:063:53:08

with foreign diplomats?

3:53:083:53:11

A beautiful girl,

3:53:113:53:13

an apartment,

3:53:133:53:14

a hidden camera.

3:53:143:53:16

Then they blackmail the poor man.

3:53:173:53:20

And he does what he is told to do.

3:53:223:53:25

That's Vienna in '61.

3:53:313:53:34

That's me there,

3:53:343:53:37

just behind Kennedy and Khrushchev.

3:53:373:53:39

I'm in the back. You can hardly see me.

3:53:393:53:43

Are you sure he was from the police?

3:53:433:53:46

I'm not sure of anything.

3:53:463:53:48

Anybody can be from the police.

3:53:483:53:52

LAUGHTER

3:53:523:53:54

Maybe your engineer is a real engineer.

3:53:543:53:57

Ah!

3:53:573:53:59

Who knows?

3:54:003:54:02

They know.

3:54:063:54:07

And now they have what they wanted.

3:54:113:54:14

Now you are afraid.

3:54:203:54:23

CRYING SOFTLY

3:54:363:54:40

Tomas.

3:55:243:55:26

I don't want to stay here. I want to go away,

3:55:333:55:37

to leave.

3:55:373:55:40

To leave?

3:55:403:55:41

Again?

3:55:433:55:44

We left here once.

3:55:513:55:53

We were in Switzerland. Then we left Switzerland.

3:55:533:55:56

Now you want to leave again. Why?

3:55:563:55:59

I don't understand.

3:55:593:56:00

Prague has grown so ugly.

3:56:003:56:02

CRYING

3:56:023:56:04

No.

3:56:043:56:06

I know there's another reason.

3:56:073:56:10

FOOTSTEPS

3:56:103:56:14

Oh...

3:56:143:56:15

Please tell me.

3:56:183:56:20

I want to leave. I want to leave.

3:56:223:56:26

They've taken our passports.

3:56:303:56:32

There's nowhere we can go.

3:56:353:56:38

We can't go anywhere.

3:56:383:56:40

Maybe we can.

3:56:443:56:47

HUMMING

3:56:573:57:01

Ha ha ha!

3:57:143:57:15

SNORTS

3:57:153:57:17

Mephisto is big now. Huh? Look, look.

3:57:173:57:20

Look, Karenin.

3:57:203:57:21

Mephisto's here.

3:57:213:57:23

Ah!

3:57:333:57:34

Phooey.

3:57:343:57:36

Ha ha ha ha ha!

3:57:363:57:39

COW MOOING

3:57:393:57:41

Karenin prefers Mephisto to dogs.

3:57:473:57:49

She thinks other dogs are silly.

3:57:493:57:53

SNORT

3:57:533:57:54

Ha ha...

3:57:543:57:56

Do you know why I love Mephisto?

3:57:593:58:02

Because he's very bright,

3:58:023:58:04

4:02:184:02:20

Not more.

4:02:214:02:23

I mean in a better way.

4:02:244:02:27

I'm not jealous of her.

4:02:274:02:29

I don't want her to be different.

4:02:314:02:35
