- 1. It's me.
- 2. Everything all right?
- 3. What do you mean they're gone?
You mean, she's gone, too?
- 4. I'll be waiting in front of the hotel.
- 5. Who could have guessed
a thing like that, sir?
- 6. When he got down into the street,
it was still dark.
- 7. Then the front door opened again,
and she came out, too.
- 8. I thought she must have
come down to say goodbye to him.
- 9. Instead, she opens the door of the car,
- 10. makes the dog get in, gets in herself,
and they're off.
- 11. Aren't you listening, Dottore?
- 12. Yes. Yes.
- 13. Damn it. This is something
we didn't want. Anyway,
- 14. as far as I'm concerned,
I followed the instructions.
- 15. You've made up your mind?
- 16. What do you think marriage
will get you?
- 17. I don't know.
The impression of normalcy.
- 18. - Normalcy.
- Yes. Stability, security.
- 19. In the morning when I'm dressing
in the mirror I see myself.
- 20. And compared to everyone else,
I feel I'm different.
- 21. What do you see in Giulia?
- 22. It may be her body, her sensuality.
- 23. Yes? And she?
- 24. The minute we're alone
she wants to fool around.
- 25. - And then?
- It usually ends up rolling on the rug.
- 26. - And the maid with the big tits?
- Oh, she's part of the dowry.
- 27. So you're getting married,
and I'm losing my best friend.
- 28. That's okay.
- 29. Two minutes and you're on, signore.
- 30. You're sure he's arriving?
- 31. The Colonel? Of course. He'll be here.
- 32. He promised. He's very interested.
- 33. It's best if you're quiet.
It's funny though, you know?
- 34. Everyone would like
to be different from the others,
- 35. but instead you want to be
the same as everyone else.
- 36. Ten years ago,
my father was in Munich.
- 37. Often, after the theater, he told me that
- 38. he'd go with friends to a Bierstube.
- 39. There was a nutty man
they thought a fool.
- 40. He spoke about politics.
- 41. He was quite an attraction.
- 42. They'd buy him beer
and encourage him.
- 43. He'd stand up on the table
making furious speeches.
- 44. It was Hitler.
- 45. Ladies and gentlemen,
that was "Who's Happier Than l"
- 46. by Cesare Andrea Bixio.
- 47. We conclude our program
of popular music
- 48. with Arcangeli and Orchestra.
- 49. The singers were Silvana Fioresi,
- 50. Lina Termini and "The Swallows."
- 51. We bring you now
"Mystique of an Alliance,"
- 52. a talk by Italo Montanari.
- 53. Italy and G|ermany,
two strongholds of light
- 54. in the course of centuries.
- 55. Their unparalleled encounters
mark a turning point
- 56. in the course of world history.
- 57. Once again,
these two peoples are rediscovering
- 58. their ancient virtues.
- 59. Virtues that embody
similarity and reciprocity
- 60. that have been long forgotten,
- 61. that which Goebbels calls
"the Prussian aspect"
- 62. of Benito Mussolini,
- 63. and which we call
"the Latin aspect" of Adolf Hitler.
- 64. Italy and Germany, bringing the world
two great revolutions,
- 65. the Anti-Parliamentarian
and the Anti-Democratic.
- 66. Please, stay seated, Clerici.
- 67. Is there any news for me?
- 68. Your personal record is really excellent.
- 69. Then I'm hired?
- 70. Such decisions must be taken slowly.
- 71. - Yes, I understand.
- Yes, of course you would.
- 72. Civil servant, Baccalaureate in Classics,
good future career,
- 73. and Comrade Montanari
has recommended you.
- 74. One morning you come to the ministry.
- 75. You arrive at my office at the ministry
with your bright and shining face,
- 76. you make a specific proposal.
- 77. The office of the Minister!
- 78. Did you ever ask yourself
why people want to collaborate with us?
- 79. Some do it out of fear,
- 80. most of them for the money.
- 81. For faith in Fascism, very few.
- 82. But you, no.
- 83. I feel that you're not governed
by any of these reasons.
- 84. And when may I expect a reply?
- 85. I hope very soon.
- 86. If I put aside the idealist revolutionary...
- 87. I must ask myself what your aim is.
- 88. I stand prepared to go,
as soon as you decide.
- 89. Fine.
- 90. I'll introduce you to the Minister.
- 91. Clerici! Clerici!
- 92. - At your service.
- The Minister is expecting us.
- 93. Is this the first time
you're seeing the Minister?
- 94. Yes.
- 95. When I explained your plan to him,
the first thing he said was, "Superb.
- 96. "Get to Professor Quadri
and you inspire his faith in you.
- 97. "You try to discover
who his contacts in Italy are."
- 98. Yes, yes, superb!
- 99. And even more important, spontaneous!
- 100. - And also, voluntary.
- Voluntary agency.
- 101. For repressing Anti-Fascism.
- 102. You've got to try
and understand women.
- 103. Say she had decided to stay in Paris.
She could have, no?
- 104. "Animula vagula blandula
- 105. "hospes comesque corporis."
- 106. I'm sorry, I didn't get that.
- 107. It's nothing. It's Latin.
- 108. Five seconds, four seconds,
- 109. three seconds, two seconds,
- 110. The correct time
at the signal was 1:00 p.m.
- 111. Here.
- 112. Pretty.
- 113. Pretty.
- 114. Aren't you giving them to me?
- 115. Today I absolutely need your flowers.
- 116. Give them here. For you.
- 117. You know what I was thinking?
I really must go to a fortune teller.
- 118. I want to know everything about you.
- 119. Don't stand around looking.
- 120. Darling!
- 121. Careful!
- 122. But, Marcello, we're engaged,
what's wrong with it?
- 123. My uncle brought something
- 124. What is it?
- 125. Mama made out a list of invitations.
- 126. - Want to see it?
- No, I trust her.
- 127. I was talking to Don Lattanzi.
- 128. If you want to marry,
you go to communion,
- 129. you've got to confess.
- 130. Otherwise he says he cannot marry us.
- 131. I don't believe in it.
- 132. Who does?
- 133. Ninety percent of the people
who go to church today don't believe.
- 134. The priests don't either.
- 135. All right, if you want me to,
I'll even confess.
- 136. I love you.
- 137. If you want to...
- 138. - lf I want to...
- Yes, right here.
- 139. On the floor, on the carpet. Want to?
- 140. Better think about the priest.
- 141. He may not grant absolution.
- 142. They grant everyone absolution.
- 143. After all, it will be so soon,
- 144. Have you decided yet, where?
- 145. Yes.
- 146. But I can't tell you anything yet.
- 147. It's a surprise.
- 148. - A surprise?
- A surprise?
- 149. Yes, yes, I adore surprises.
- 150. Giulia, leave us alone.
- 151. - Marcello, I went down for the mail...
- Come and eat!
- 152. The letter's anonymous?
- 153. What is it all about?
- 154. But you know
they're just awful to do this.
- 155. Worse than stabbing us in the back.
- 156. But what's in the letter?
- 157. And the stamp shows
it's someone in Rome.
- 158. Let me see, Mama.
I want to see what's written there.
- 159. Read it just for us. But then I'll burn it.
- 160. There are such ugly things in it.
- 161. "Signora, in permitting your daughter
and her fiancé to marry,
- 162. "you're committing more than an error,
- 163. "you're committing a crime."
- 164. "Signor Clerici's father
- 165. "has been confined in a mental home,
with a brain disease
- 166. "brought on by syphilis.
- 167. "As you know, this disease is hereditary.
- 168. "There's still time to stop this marriage.
- 169. I'd be happy to undergo a check-up.
- 170. - Ridiculous.
- No. I don't mind a bit.
- 171. In Germany, premarital medical tests
are obligatory, a friend told me.
- 172. My boy, I know. You're not just a man,
- 173. you're an angel!
- 174. Thank you.
- 175. You see, the origin of my father's
mental illness isn't venereal.
- 176. That can be medically confirmed.
- 177. By the way,
my little girl has had the mumps,
- 178. scarlet fever, and German measles.
- 179. - They're all very moral maladies.
- 180. Look here, who are you?
Why are you following me?
- 181. Pure coincidence.
- 182. I wasn't following you.
- 183. Evidently, we're both going
to the same place.
- 184. I'd like to ask you something.
Would your name be Clerici?
- 185. Yes, I'm Dottore Clerici.
And who are you?
- 186. I'm Special Agent Manganiello.
Sent by the Colonel.
- 187. Get in.
- 188. - Thanks.
- 189. Such disorder.
The place looks like a dung heap.
- 190. Yes, it's a pity.
- 191. Hemlock!
- 192. Speed up, Manganiello,
or we won't catch up with them.
- 193. I can't go faster than this, sir.
The road is slippery.
- 194. Not more than half an hour ahead.
- 195. Don't talk so much. Hurry!
- 196. It's slippery.
- 197. I know. But we must save her,
no matter how slippery.
- 198. I understand you.
- 199. But if we break our necks,
where will that get us? Dottore?
- 200. The Colonel told me
that I have to tell you...
- 201. After. Wait here.
- 202. Mother. Please cover yourself.
- 203. I don't want to see you half nude.
- 204. What a son I have.
A moralist, my son is now.
- 205. You know? I had a dream just now.
- 206. You came in here by that door,
you sat where you are.
- 207. You kissed me actually.
- 208. Why aren't you dressed?
- 209. What's the time?
- 210. It's late. We're gonna visit Papa.
- 211. Why doesn't he die?
- 212. All that hospital money we'd save,
and I've got so little.
- 213. - We'll sell the auto.
- No. I'm not going to sell that.
- 214. If I do, it means discharging Hemlock
- 215. and I must have him near me.
- 216. I get so lonely in this house.
- 217. I want to see him when I please.
- 218. Please don't talk to me
about your lovers.
- 219. What do you mean? There's only one.
- 220. And he's much more elegant
than your silly fiancée is.
- 221. What a bastard you are!
- 222. No, I'm not selling the car.
- 223. I will sell the house.
- 224. I want to travel around Europe.
- 225. After all, I was born to travel.
- 226. And Rome has become so provincial.
- 227. Middle-class children marrying
into all kinds of good families.
- 228. It's all a lot of horse manure!
- 229. - Special Agent Manganiello!
- 230. Does this house look normal to you?
A place for normal people?
- 231. The Colonel told me
that I have to tell you...
- 232. For a normal childhood?
- 233. The decadence here
makes me nauseous.
- 234. - Manganiello.
- Yes, Dottore?
- 235. Comrade.
- 236. Do you see this?
- 237. It's morphine.
- 238. What did the Colonel say?
- 239. There's a small change in the program.
- 240. On your way to Paris
before you cross the frontier,
- 241. you must stop at Ventimiglia,
Via dei Glicini, number three.
- 242. Number three Via dei Glicini.
- 243. You'll meet a trusted person
- 244. He'll give you further instructions.
- 245. How long have you been in the ranks?
- 246. I began in 1923.
- 247. Turkey, France, Greece.
- 248. - Always into the breach?
- I'm on the move.
- 249. All for family and my country.
- 250. Your country before the family.
- 251. Yes, sir. Of course.
- 252. Comrade!
- 253. Manganiello, you see that individual?
- 254. His name is Ki.
- 255. - Ki?
- That's right.
- 256. "Ki" means Hemlock in Japanese.
- 257. Being called Hemlock isn't normal.
- 258. He's a procurer.
- 259. He couldn't be my brother,
but my mother could be his mother.
- 260. I said it doesn't seem normal.
- 261. He brings her morphine
and uses her as he likes.
- 262. - Hemlock?
- 263. You must understand why I tell you this.
- 264. Five minutes and he won't have
the time to take a valise.
- 265. Tell the Colonel to count on me!
- 266. Hemlock! Hemlock!
- 267. - Hemlock!
- Where is he hiding?
- 268. You weren't rude to him again,
- 269. I? No, he's so charming.
- 270. Hemlock!
- 271. Hemlock!
- 272. Have you looked in his room?
- 273. I've looked everywhere.
Even under your bed.
- 274. - How are things, Franz?
- Better than yesterday.
- 275. - Yesterday, we were bad.
- Pretty bad?
- 276. Yesterday we were forced
to wear our straitjacket.
- 277. - And today?
- Today is better.
- 278. The wind seems to help our inspiration.
- 279. I'll never be tired of repeating.
- 280. If the State doesn't model itself
- 281. on the image of the individual,
how will the individual
- 282. ever model himself
in the image of the state?
- 283. Et cetera, et cetera.
- 284. Slaughter and melancholy.
- 285. Slaughter and melancholy.
- 286. Antonio, your son's
decided to get married.
- 287. Marcello getting married?
- 288. Slaughter and melancholy.
- 289. Look.
- 290. The announcement of the wedding.
- 291. Stop it. He's your father!
- 292. I like it. Sign it.
- 293. Read. He's not as crazy as he looks.
- 294. May I ask a moment alone
with my father?
- 295. When I was just a boy,
- 296. you used to tell me
about your punitive forays.
- 297. I don't know, I can't recall anything.
- 298. But why are you ashamed?
It's important for me.
- 299. When you were healthy,
you used a big cudgel.
- 300. Yes.
- 301. - And did you give castor oil to them?
- 302. - And didn't you torture them?
- 303. Didn't you kill? You killed, too?
- 304. Go away! Franz! Franz!
- 305. Do you believe at all in fate, Dottore?
- 306. Well, two years ago in Africa,
after a mission like this,
- 307. they tell me at Headquarters,
"Did you receive the counter-orders?"
- 308. "Hey, what counter-orders?"
- 309. Well, in Rome, they decided
to suspend the whole thing
- 310. because it wasn't necessary.
- 311. Let's hurry!
- 312. There's nothing we can do
for the woman
- 313. even if we get there in time.
- 314. You know perfectly well
we can't afford any witnesses.
- 315. Then stop!
- 316. I'll get out!
- 317. What's the use of going? You go!
- 318. Dottore Marcello!
- 319. But we have to be there.
We have a certain responsibility.
- 320. Would you look at that!
- 321. Stop!
- 322. Who makes the report otherwise?
- 323. Unbutton his pants!
- 324. Let me up! Let me up!
- 325. The police! The police! Come on!
- 326. Stop!
- 327. - What's your name?
- Marcello Clerici. What's yours?
- 328. Pasqualino Semirama. But call me Lino.
- 329. How long is it since
your last confession?
- 330. Since I made my first Holy Communion.
- 331. Bad, my son, very bad.
- 332. - How old are you?
- 333. And all this time
you have lived like an animal.
- 334. Tell me, which sins
have you committed?
- 335. I've committed them all.
Even the worst sin.
- 336. - All?
- All. Even murder.
- 337. Murder? And you didn't
feel the need to confess?
- 338. Pardon?
- 339. You didn't feel the need
to rush to confession?
- 340. I was 13.
- 341. Well, what were your friends
trying to do?
- 342. They're just stupid.
- 343. What did they want from you?
- 344. All right, then, what present?
- 345. A gun.
- 346. - A cap pistol?
- No, a real one.
- 347. I have one, too. A Mauser.
- 348. You want it?
If you want it, I'll give it to you.
- 349. - Where is it?
- It's in my room. Come.
- 350. I have a pretty oriental kimono, too.
- 351. - Do you know who Madame Butterfly is?
- Where are you going?
- 352. Go on, tell me.
What did he want from you?
- 353. I didn't know what.
He was so much like a woman.
- 354. - A woman?
- He trembled like a woman.
- 355. Well, what happened? Kisses?
- 356. Touching you?
- 357. Are you sure you're telling me the truth?
- 358. Yes.
- 359. And what happened there between you?
- 360. Shoot. What are you waiting for?
Go on, shoot.
- 361. Kill the pretty butterfly!
- 362. - Now you must tell me the details.
- No, that's enough, please.
- 363. It's almost as though you think sodomy
- 364. is a more mortal sin
than killing somebody, padre.
- 365. I won't permit such insolence.
- 366. You are forgetting
that I happen to be the priest,
- 367. and you the sinner.
- 368. After that once, did you have
sexual relations with other men?
- 369. No. All the rest were normal.
- 370. Which means what?
- 371. A brothel when I was 18.
- 372. Since then,
relationships only with women.
- 373. This in your opinion
is a sexual life that's normal?
- 374. Yes. But why?
- 375. But you, my son,
have always lived in sin.
- 376. Normal means matrimony,
having a wife, family.
- 377. That's what I find.
- 378. Bravo, bravo, bravo.
- 379. I'm going to build a life that's normal.
- 380. I'm marrying a petty bourgeois.
- 381. Then she must be a fine girl.
- 382. Speak out. Go ahead!
- 383. Mediocre.
- 384. A mound of petty ideas.
- 385. Full of petty ambitions.
- 386. She's all bed and kitchen.
- 387. You have no right
to use such expressions.
- 388. Normality.
- 389. I intend to construct my normality,
but it won't be easy.
- 390. - Stay within religion...
- Outside religion!
- 391. God is so bountiful.
The Virgin is so maternal.
- 392. Christ is so merciful to us all.
- 393. And the priest is so blessed
- 394. You haven't demonstrated
any horror at my crime yet.
- 395. It didn't make you pause.
- 396. You're surprised because I didn't run
to confession right away.
- 397. The one thing you have to do
is repent humbly,
- 398. ask His pardon today.
- 399. I've already repented.
I want to be excused by society.
- 400. Yes.
- 401. I want to confess today
the sin I'll commit tomorrow.
- 402. One sin atones for another.
- 403. It is the price I must pay society.
And I shall pay it.
- 404. Are you a part of some new sect?
- 405. Do you belong
to a group of subversives?
- 406. No. No.
- 407. I belong to a group that
tracks down all the subversives.
- 408. Ego te absolvo
- 409. a peccatis tuis.
- 410. Music!
- 411. Long live the bridegroom!
- 412. Long live the bridegroom!
- 413. Congratulations!
- 414. - When is the wedding?
- Next Sunday.
- 415. The bride, why didn't you bring her?
- 416. What's her name?
- 417. Let's drink to the end of bachelorhood!
- 418. - We have biscuits, too.
- Crackers as well.
- 419. Only a drop. Pour me just a drop.
- 420. It goes to my head quickly.
- 421. - The party makes me nervous.
- People wanted to meet you.
- 422. - Never mind. It's just a tray.
- Good, good. It's a lucky sign.
- 423. You know, they're so excited.
- 424. Whenever there's an event,
people get excited.
- 425. Forgive them.
- 426. - I'm going on a mission.
- 427. Your performance was wonderful.
- 428. - I appreciate it.
- I am never refused.
- 429. Music. Come on, let's play.
- 430. People are waiting
to speak with the Duce.
- 431. Suddenly a frightful scream is heard.
- 432. That's enough.
- 433. Where are you? Started again?
- 434. Last time's lesson wasn't enough
for you? Stop crying.
- 435. I shall play for you
the last part of "Foxtrot" by Maestro Lori.
- 436. What do you get
out of working for the man?
- 437. I get the feeling I'm finally back
- 438. to the normal state I mentioned to you.
- 439. - How do you think a normal man...
- A normal man!
- 440. For me, a normal man is one
- 441. who turns his head to see
a beautiful woman's bottom.
- 442. The point is not just to turn your head.
- 443. There are 5-6 reasons,
- 444. and he is glad to find people
who are like him, his equals.
- 445. That's why he likes crowded beaches,
- 446. football, the bar downtown...
- 447. At Piazza Venezia.
- 448. He likes people similar to himself
- 449. and does not trust
those who are different.
- 450. That's why a normal man is
a true brother, a true citizen,
- 451. - a true patriot.
- A true Fascist.
- 452. You haven't ever wondered
how come we're friends?
- 453. Since we're different from the others.
- 454. We are two of a kind.
- 455. Are you here?
- 456. What's the matter, you don't agree?
I know you do.
- 457. I am never wrong.
- 458. It rains from the scattered clouds
- 459. It rains on the parched
tamarisks about you
- 460. The happy pines glistening dew
- 461. And upon the myrtles it rains anew
- 462. It rains upon our naked hands
- 463. On our transparent vestments
- 464. On the new thoughts our souls reveal
- 465. And on the fable
that eluded me yesterday
- 466. And eludes me today, Hermione
- 467. Marcello, I am unworthy of you.
- 468. Marcello, I am unworthy of you.
- 469. Yes, yes. I don't deserve you.
- 470. You sound the same as your mother.
- 471. I have something to tell you,
but you mustn't look at me,
- 472. so please look out there.
If you look, I'll be ashamed.
- 473. Maybe afterwards
you won't love me anymore,
- 474. but I've got to tell you.
- 475. You know,
what you think of me isn't true.
- 476. You think I'm a virgin. I'm not.
- 477. What do you think of me now?
- 478. I didn't marry you because
I thought you're still a virgin.
- 479. Dearest, I know
your mentality's modern,
- 480. but then I felt I should tell you the truth.
- 481. I forgot to mention it.
- 482. At Ventimiglia, we'll get off.
I've got an appointment.
- 483. But I have to tell you
the whole thing. I have to.
- 484. You're angry.
- 485. You were in love with someone
before you met me. Who was it?
- 486. He was a man of 60.
A very disgusting old man.
- 487. A friend of my family's.
- 488. - Who is it?
- It's the Advocate Perpuzio.
- 489. Perpuzio?
- 490. - But he's one of our witnesses.
- He insisted on it.
- 491. But how was I going to say no?
- 492. - Six years it went on.
- Six years?
- 493. Six years.
- 494. All right.
- 495. Pardon, monsieur.
We'll be in Ventimiglia in a few minutes.
- 496. Thank you.
- 497. - This is number three Via dei Glicini?
- Number three.
- 498. Who is it?
- 499. He looked to me like he might be
an officer in civvies!
- 500. This isn't a museum.
Go inside, go inside!
- 501. I'll send the others down right away.
- 502. I'm an idiot, a complete maniac.
- 503. Again! Say it again.
- 504. The gentleman is a friend
of Signor Raoul's.
- 505. Go on! Say it!
- 506. I'm crazy, a complete maniac.
- 507. I'm crazy.
- 508. Clerici!
- 509. What are you doing wasting time?
- 510. Come here!
- 511. What?
- 512. Professor Quadri's activities in France
- 513. have become interfering
- 514. It's become necessary
to make an example of him.
- 515. You had to contact and inspire
him with confidence
- 516. and get information.
- 517. - But now...
- But now?
- 518. There's a counter-order from Rome.
All you do is eliminate him.
- 519. - That clear?
- 520. The operation will not
take place in Paris.
- 521. It's up to you to choose
the locale and the moment.
- 522. It's up to you.
- 523. There's nothing more to talk about.
- 524. Fine. This means I have no alternative.
- 525. Comrade Clerici!
- 526. It must be quick and decisive! Comrade!
- 527. The train for Paris leaves in an hour.
- 528. I lost my hat. Where's my hat?
Where is it?
- 529. Then he entered the room. Slowly.
- 530. Finally he stood behind me
and said, "Is that French?"
- 531. Come and sit here.
- 532. "It's my Latin lesson," I said.
- 533. He grabbed me by my hair.
- 534. And then, imagine,
I used to call him Uncle.
- 535. He unbuttoned my blouse then.
- 536. I was well-developed at 15, I guess.
- 537. He began to squeeze my breasts
harder until I almost fainted.
- 538. And then, I don't know.
I was suddenly on the bed.
- 539. He was on top of me.
- 540. Then I understood everything
and all my strength left me.
- 541. Then I understood everything
and all my strength left me.
- 542. Did you like it?
- 543. - I lay there passive.
- And then?
- 544. He did everything to me he wanted.
- 545. I cried so much,
and in order to console me,
- 546. he said he was absolutely,
absolutely crazy about me.
- 547. Six years.
- 548. I would like 26, 15, 37.
- 549. - Length nine and width...
- I'll wait.
- 550. Who are you telephoning to?
One, two, three, four...
- 551. - A man with a hump.
- Hunchbacks bring good luck!
- 552. Five and six.
- 553. Six by nine ought to amount
to 54 meters square, isn't it?
- 554. That's right.
- 555. He was our professor at the university.
- 556. They named him Smerdikoff.
- 557. But his was the only class
that was crowded.
- 558. All the freshman girls
were in love with him.
- 559. Still busy?
- 560. Please, in a few minutes
will you ring it for me?
- 561. The year I was supposed to graduate,
they gave him the castor oil.
- 562. He won't remember after nine years.
- 563. I had to go and ask him for my thesis.
- 564. He asked me if I was a Fascist.
- 565. And what did you answer?
- 566. I didn't bother to answer him.
- 567. He told me it would be
impossible for him
- 568. to teach philosophy in a Fascist country.
- 569. Hello.
- 570. This is Clerici.
I was a student of yours back in Rome,
- 571. and I'd like to see you again.
- 572. Of course, Professor.
I came about my graduate thesis.
- 573. It was the year that
you stopped teaching.
- 574. I don't remember your name.
- 575. It was so long ago. Clerici, you said?
- 576. Yes. And you said to me...
I remember that day so well, everything,
- 577. you said,
"The time for reflection is over for me.
- 578. "Now begins the time for action."
- 579. - And you want to see me?
- 580. Why?
- 581. I don't have any precise reason.
- 582. They still speak about you in Rome.
- 583. And I'd like to see you, that's all.
- 584. Let's see.
Could you come over to my house?
- 585. Yes. When?
- 586. Today if you like, after lunch.
Come and have a coffee.
- 587. I'm honeymooning in Paris.
- 588. Would it be all right
if I brought my wife?
- 589. Of course.
Seventeen Rue Saint Jacques.
- 590. - I'll see you later then.
- Thank you.
- 591. He has a nice voice.
Not like a hunchback's.
- 592. What shall I wear?
Street clothes or really get dressed up?
- 593. But why bother?
- 594. He'll be a typical intellectual,
disagreeable and impotent.
- 595. How do you know that?
- 596. I don't really.
My uncle used to always say...
- 597. - Uncle Perpuzio!
- Laugh, laugh.
- 598. Only he's the one
who sent the anonymous letter.
- 599. Cut that out!
- 600. But, Marcello...
- 601. Answer that. Say I'm not in.
- 602. - But what if it's a foreigner?
- No, he'll be an Italian.
- 603. Answer the phone!
- 604. Hello?
- 605. No, he's not in.
- 606. Very well, I'll tell him.
- 607. He said he'd call back this afternoon.
- 608. Funny name, Manganiello.
- 609. - Yes, what is it?
- I'm Monsieur Clerici.
- 610. - You've got the wrong apartment.
- I've an appointment.
- 611. You're Italian?
- 612. The professor is expecting them.
I'll take care.
- 613. Get away, Marcello!
- 614. He'll bite you! Run!
- 615. Down, Roby!
- 616. Get down! Sit down!
- 617. You're Monsieur Clerici, aren't you?
- 618. Come in.
- 619. - Nothing to be afraid of.
- Me? I'm not a bit frightened.
- 620. Well then come up.
He won't bite now, I tell you.
- 621. Funny, usually dogs like me.
- 622. Is this the first time
you're visiting Paris?
- 623. - Do you like it?
- Yes. It's so pretty.
- 624. The station, the hotel, and now here.
- 625. - Please.
- Thank you.
- 626. If you like,
later I could show you a bit of the town.
- 627. Really? And then
when you come to Italy,
- 628. I can show you
around Rome, everything.
- 629. The piazzas, the churches, the Forum...
- 630. Yes.
- 631. I should get them
or the coffee will be frozen.
- 632. Come on, boys,
the coffee's getting cold.
- 633. I wonder why she seems so hostile.
- 634. Does she seem hostile?
But she's nice to me.
- 635. She acts like
she knows me a hundred years.
- 636. And I don't know why. I never met her.
- 637. Don't even know who she is.
- 638. She's married to Professor Quadri.
- 639. Young enough to be his daughter.
- 640. But it doesn't matter. I heard her saying,
"My husband's inside."
- 641. - She said "my husband"?
- But certainly.
- 642. No, I don't agree.
Printing in the shop is too expensive.
- 643. But we'll never accomplish
anything with the mimeograph.
- 644. - Thirty thousand copies is no joke...
- It always breaks down.
- 645. My husband's still busy.
- 646. He'll see you in a few minutes, all right?
- 647. - Yes, we've got time.
- He said we might dine tonight.
- 648. We'd love to.
- 649. Later we might stop
at Joinville and dance.
- 650. - You agree?
- Dancing makes me so happy!
- 651. Is dancing still allowed in Italy?
- 652. Now that I think of it, it's impossible.
- 653. Why?
- 654. 'Cause I didn't bring a gown with me.
- 655. We can fix that. This afternoon,
we can shop if you'll come.
- 656. - Shouldn't we go immediately?
- No. I have a class at school at 3:30.
- 657. But we can meet at your hotel
if you like at 5:00.
- 658. - At what hotel are you?
- At the D'Orsay.
- 659. - Then we'll see you at 5:00?
- 660. Shopping is only for women.
- 661. You mean I can go and you won't mind?
- 662. No.
- 663. Take him to the professor.
- 664. Come in, come in, Clerici.
Did they give you coffee?
- 665. - Yes, thank you.
- Goodbye. Thank you.
- 666. - Giulia.
- 667. I'm curious.
- 668. Before you married him,
did you go to bed with him?
- 669. It's very curious, Clerici.
- 670. You come all this way only to see me?
- 671. Remember, Professor,
- 672. as soon as you used
to enter the classroom
- 673. they had to shut the windows.
- 674. You couldn't stand all that light,
- 675. Later, I understood why you used
to do that.
- 676. All these years,
- 677. you know what remained
most firmly imprinted on my memory?
- 678. Your voice.
- 679. Imagine a great dungeon
in the shape of a cave.
- 680. Inside, men who have
lived there since childhood,
- 681. all chained, and forced
to face the back of the cave.
- 682. Behind them, far away,
the light from a fire flickers.
- 683. Between the fire and the prisoners,
imagine a low wall
- 684. similar to that little stage
- 685. on which a puppeteer
shows his puppets.
- 686. That was November '28.
- 687. Yes, I remember.
- 688. Now try and imagine some other men
- 689. passing behind that little wall
- 690. bearing statues
made of wood and stone.
- 691. The statues are higher than that wall.
- 692. You couldn't have brought me
a better gift than these memories.
- 693. The enchained prisoners of Plato.
- 694. And how they resemble us.
- 695. - And what do they see?
- What do they see?
- 696. You who come from Italy
should know from experience.
- 697. They see only the shadows
the fire makes
- 698. on the back of the cavern
that faces them.
- 699. Shadows. The reflections of things.
- 700. Like what's happening
to you people now in Italy.
- 701. Say those prisoners were at liberty
and could speak out.
- 702. Mightn't they call the shadows
they see reality, not visions?
- 703. Yes. They would mistake for reality,
the shadows of reality.
- 704. The myth of the great cave.
- 705. That was the graduate thesis
you proposed to do for me.
- 706. - Did you finish it afterwards?
- You departed. I used a different theme.
- 707. I'm truly sorry, Clerici.
I had so much faith in you.
- 708. - In all of you.
- No, I don't believe it.
- 709. If that were true,
you'd never have left Rome.
- 710. That's fine. Go on!
- 711. Move faster. Move faster.
- 712. Move faster. Move faster.
- 713. Move faster. Move faster.
- 714. At the point we had reached
there was no other choice.
- 715. All we could do was emigrate.
We wanted everyone
- 716. to be able to feel our disdain,
and our rebellion as exiles,
- 717. the meaning of our struggle,
the historical meaning.
- 718. Beautiful words, but you left
and I became a Fascist.
- 719. Excuse me, Clerici,
- 720. but a confirmed Fascist
doesn't talk like that.
- 721. Yes? Yes, it's me. Yes. Go ahead.
- 722. One lover? Only one?
- 723. She went down and out.
- 724. She gave her all for a redheaded pimp
with a bloodshot eye.
- 725. A Jew he was, with a garlic smell.
Who'd come from Formosa once,
- 726. and hauled her out of
some whorehouse in Shanghai.
- 727. You really will lend me these foxes?
- 728. Of course.
Keep them as long as you like.
- 729. Thank you.
- 730. Wait for me. I'll be right back.
- 731. Do you often go around
people's houses spying?
- 732. How often do I honeymoon in France?
- 733. I met a woman with your eyes.
- 734. - Where?
- 735. The resemblance is unbelievable.
- 736. - And who was she?
- A prostitute.
- 737. Many thanks.
- 738. - Did she kiss well?
- It would be like kissing you.
- 739. - How did it end up then?
- It didn't.
- 740. I embraced her and that was it.
- 741. I was left with this great desire
to find her again.
- 742. - Why are you so hostile?
- Because I'm sincere.
- 743. Over here she had a scar.
- 744. No! No! Let me go!
- 745. Who knows what it's for?
- 746. But it isn't gold the way I imagined.
- 747. From here it's almost as small
as the one I have on my night table.
- 748. They say at least once a month,
- 749. some disappointed lover
throws himself off. How stupid.
- 750. - You want to go to the Tower?
- 751. Taxi!
- 752. Yes. I'm glad we're going up
the Eiffel Tower.
- 753. Quick! To the Eiffel Tower. Ciao!
- 754. And you?
- 755. Attention!
- 756. Now, supple. Go on. Hup!
- 757. Helene dear, chin up.
- 758. Hup!
- 759. Try it again now.
- 760. Watch your knees, Denise.
- 761. Take a breath.
- 762. That's starting to look good, isn't it?
- 763. Your head.
- 764. Your points out.
- 765. Eyes still, Margot.
- 766. Take a break.
- 767. Thank you, madame.
- 768. - Is there some place to talk?
- 769. - No, not here.
- Why not?
- 770. I have some friends in Brazil.
- 771. I'll leave everything if you come with me.
- 772. I, on the other hand,
have friends in Italy.
- 773. I received a letter. Read it.
- 774. "If you ever get this letter,
it will be in spite of the prison censors."
- 775. You must never make the gesture
as wide as this.
- 776. Why did you stop? Go on.
- 777. "They come suddenly in the night
and kick the door of my cell
- 778. "so as not to let me sleep."
- 779. - Why do...
- 780. Why do you make me read this letter?
- 781. I'll tell you in a bit.
- 782. "Some days,
there are the false executions.
- 783. "They sent me the priest
three times already
- 784. "and I refused extreme unction.
- 785. "They gave me castor oil again,
but they should realize
- 786. "that after almost 20 years,
- 787. "I'm used to it. It has no effect."
- 788. Why must I read this letter?
- 789. You want me to tell you?
- 790. Because you're a Fascist! A spy!
- 791. You imagine you took us in?
- 792. Does your husband know?
- 793. Why do you think you were received?
- 794. You're only a worm.
- 795. You revolt me! You're disgusting!
- 796. I'm getting Giulia at the hotel.
- 797. We'll be on the first train home.
- 798. You'd never do it.
You're too much of a coward.
- 799. Marcello! Hold me.
- 800. Marcello, I'm frightened.
- 801. Marcello, please don't hurt us.
- 802. Swear it! Swear it, please.
- 803. I don't know.
- 804. Giulia, look at this.
- 805. Anna! Come here!
- 806. It's a surprise!
- 807. Look at that color. It's a dream!
- 808. Come and look at this one. Here.
- 809. Anna! It's divine!
- 810. Look how beautiful it is! Just look!
- 811. Giulia, come on.
- 812. It's very big, all in wood,
with enormous beds.
- 813. The house belonged to my grandfather.
- 814. Luca and I used to go there often.
- 815. Roby, here!
- 816. But now with what's going on in Spain,
we don't leave Paris any longer.
- 817. All right, Roby! That's enough!
- 818. La Savoie is beautiful.
I can't wait to get back.
- 819. Dottore! Dottore!
- 820. Come on, I know you're back there.
- 821. Why don't you want to see me?
- 822. I've been running after you all day.
- 823. And it's freezing here.
- 824. You ought to come out
and have a chat now.
- 825. What is it you're worrying about?
- 826. We'll go somewhere inside.
We'll talk about it.
- 827. I have my job, you know.
- 828. The time's passing.
- 829. You must have a plan by now.
- 830. You haven't stood still for an instant.
- 831. May I say you ought to be following him,
not his wife.
- 832. There's no point in screaming like that
at the birds, you know.
- 833. They don't understand
you foreigners. Maniac.
- 834. He thinks the birds
in Paris are foreigners.
- 835. God damn it. Dottore!
- 836. I do understand you.
- 837. But the operation must be
quick and decisive.
- 838. Third floor.
- 839. You don't mind if we stay like this a bit?
- 840. No.
- 841. How silly you are.
- 842. Remember what you yourself said
a while ago,
- 843. "If I weren't married," you said.
- 844. Yes, I might have said that.
I am married.
- 845. It doesn't mean a thing.
- 846. You have to understand
married to whom.
- 847. I like him.
- 848. Let's try on my new frock.
- 849. No. Don't move. I want to dress you.
- 850. How strange you are.
You want to be my maid now?
- 851. What difference does it make?
It's my pleasure.
- 852. Please, don't look at me.
- 853. There's nothing wrong with it.
I'm a woman just as you are.
- 854. Yes, but you look at me in a way...
- 855. Turn around.
- 856. How beautiful!
- 857. How much I love Paris!
- 858. When Marcello sees it!
- 859. Violets? Violets, monsieur?
- 860. Do you want violets?
- 861. These are real Parma violets.
- 862. - They're really from Parma?
- 863. Let me have one.
- 864. Thank you.
- 865. "Ye prisoners of starvation!"
- 866. Arise ye prisoners of starvation
- 867. Awake ye wretched of the Earth
- 868. For justice thunders condemnation
- 869. A better world in birth
- 870. No more tradition's chains shall bind us
- 871. Arise ye slaves no more in thrall
- 872. The earth shall rise on new foundations
- 873. We have been naught, we shall be all
- 874. 'Tis the final conflict
- 875. Let each stand in his place
- 876. The Internationale
- 877. Shall lead the human race
- 878. 'Tis the final conflict
- 879. Let each stand in his place
- 880. The Internationale
- 881. Shall lead the human race
- 882. Inside.
- 883. - Come.
- What's the matter?
- 884. - Do you like real Parma violets?
- They're not for me.
- 885. I want you to have them.
- 886. You couldn't have known
I'd be at the hotel.
- 887. They're for Giulia.
- 888. It's for you I bought them.
- 889. Giulia will be beautiful tonight.
- 890. Half past eight at the hotel.
- 891. You know, I'm sad.
- 892. Since we've arrived in Paris,
we haven't made love yet.
- 893. Your knees are sharp.
- 894. Here's news for you.
- 895. The Quadris have a house
in the Savoie.
- 896. Anna says the Professor leaves
tomorrow morning by car
- 897. while she stays here.
- 898. Only for a day or so, then she's
planning to join her husband
- 899. and wants us to visit with them
in the mountains.
- 900. I have the address.
- 901. Nice, don't you think so?
- 902. She told me they have
enormous beds in their villa
- 903. which make awful noises!
- 904. And she says there are big,
big forests in the neighborhood
- 905. where no one ever passes.
- 906. Anna says...
- 907. Anna told me you can even
make love in the snow.
- 908. Can you imagine the Professor
wandering around in the woods naked?
- 909. You had me convinced
you were the typical new Italian.
- 910. No such type exists yet,
but we're creating him.
- 911. - Through repression?
- No, through example.
- 912. Giving him castor oil?
Throwing him into prison?
- 913. By torturing them? Blackmailing?
- 914. Anna. Please, dear, calm down.
- 915. Clerici is a Fascist. I'm an Anti-Fascist.
- 916. We both knew.
- 917. And we decided to have supper
together all the same.
- 918. - And get the wives drunk.
- The old Professor and his ex-pupil.
- 919. - Giulia, what's the matter?
- And yet I'm willing to bet.
- 920. - Giulia, what's the matter?
- And yet I'm willing to bet.
- 921. God, I've drunk so much!
- 922. - You may change your mind yet.
- Impossible, Professor.
- 923. My husband is naive about these things.
- 924. I can't forget that Clerici was
one of my best students ever.
- 925. Really? Tell me.
What was Marcello like as a student?
- 926. - Serious. Too serious.
- But you can't be too serious.
- 927. Really serious people are never serious.
- 928. Giulia, did you ever see
your husband laugh?
- 929. No, but then, he's a very serious man.
That's his nature.
- 930. - Nothing the matter with that.
- That's not my nature at all.
- 931. I've an idea, Clerici.
You should both remain here.
- 932. You will understand a great deal
about many things living here.
- 933. For you, it's an important opportunity.
- 934. What do you know, Professor?
- 935. He's right.
- 936. He's only in Paris
to enjoy his honeymoon.
- 937. By the way,
did Giulia mention my idea to you?
- 938. - We have a lovely guest room...
- With an enormous bed!
- 939. And from la Savoie
you can go back to Italy.
- 940. Thank you,
but I promised Giulia to show her Paris.
- 941. I'm half-drunk already!
- 942. That's splendid.
My husband will leave tomorrow.
- 943. And after you see some more of Paris,
we'll join him.
- 944. Marcello, tell the truth.
Would you like us to go?
- 945. But of course I would.
They're really so kind.
- 946. - Well, all right.
- Perhaps Giulia doesn't want to go.
- 947. No, no!
- 948. If you don't like me, you can just say so.
- 949. Don't embarrass dear Giulia.
- 950. - We'll definitely come. Right, Giulia?
- 951. Let me sit there.
- 952. God, it's going around, the whole place.
- 953. It's like that restaurant
we had on the train
- 954. with that funny fat man.
- 955. Marcello, will you give me
a proof of your friendship?
- 956. There's something to be sent. A letter.
- 957. To Rome. To a comrade.
I ask you to help me.
- 958. It has to be delivered personally.
There's no hurry.
- 959. When you get back to Italy
from our place.
- 960. This might mean prison.
- 961. Any one of my men
would risk much more.
- 962. Professor, one would say
you're doing this purposely,
- 963. just to get me into trouble there.
- 964. Considering what you're
going back to, Clerici,
- 965. - a month in a Fascist jail may be better.
- Excuse me.
- 966. What is it?
- 967. What's the matter?
- 968. Hey, Dottore! Watch out!
- 969. What? I'm here to protect you
and you want to kill me?
- 970. I don't want to kill anyone. Here.
I don't want to carry it anymore.
- 971. What is this all about?
- 972. - You giving up?
- No, it's so clumsy.
- 973. I don't even know how to use it.
It's in my way, it's so heavy.
- 974. Listen to me, comrade!
- 975. I want you to look straight at me.
- 976. We're in a war, right?
You give up, you're a deserter.
- 977. Everybody's thought
of deserting at least once.
- 978. - I wouldn't think of that.
- Even I did. Really. Yes, yes, yes.
- 979. But I said to myself, "Manganiello,
why, what are you thinking of?"
- 980. It isn't your patriotism,
- 981. it isn't your honor you are betraying.
- 982. It is really you.
- 983. After a while,
- 984. I managed a hearty pat on my back,
smoked another cigar,
- 985. and what did I think? "Let's go.
- 986. "Courage now.
- 987. "Comrade Manganiello?"
- 988. Fight or be beaten.
- 989. It's freezing!
- 990. Hurry. We're going to dance.
- 991. You'll make me fall!
- 992. Come on.
- 993. Thanks.
- 994. If you were what you say,
- 995. you would have agreed
to carry that letter
- 996. and you would have used it
against our friends in Rome.
- 997. Well, take a look.
There's nothing written.
- 998. I thought it best to put you to the test.
- 999. They must stop dancing.
- 1000. But why?
- 1001. They're both so pretty.
- 1002. Well, what's there to stare at?
- 1003. This is Paris,
and I'm a fashionable woman, aren't I?
- 1004. - You're crazy, completely.
- All right. Let's dance!
- 1005. Everyone! All of you!
- 1006. Everybody, come on!
- 1007. - Tomorrow by car at dawn.
- 1008. - What about his wife?
- She doesn't go.
- 1009. Better without her.
- 1010. We'll meet in Rome!
- 1011. And the best of luck to you!
- 1012. Who knows what
you think of me, Professor?
- 1013. I've had too much champagne!
- 1014. It's good for anybody
to get drunk once in a while.
- 1015. You won't believe this.
- 1016. You upset me like
you're giving me an exam.
- 1017. If you're prepared, everybody'll pass?
- 1018. Listen. I'll be going tomorrow
with my husband.
- 1019. You must remain.
- 1020. Please remain in town. Do it for me.
- 1021. Didn't you decide to go
with Giulia and me?
- 1022. Haven't you observed
she can't stand me, your Giulia?
- 1023. Pardon!
- 1024. But Giulia's so stupid.
Can't you see she's drunk?
- 1025. We've all lost our heads a little tonight.
- 1026. Besides, you're mistaken
to say she can't bear you.
- 1027. She mentioned that she admires you.
- 1028. - What else did she say?
- That she finds you seductive.
- 1029. I changed my mind.
- 1030. I'll stay with you in Paris. Glad?
- 1031. Anna! The Professor
is propositioning me!
- 1032. Help!
- 1033. I feel so happy that in a minute
I know I'm going to feel terrible!
- 1034. Ciao!
- 1035. Damn. I'm beginning to get tired.
- 1036. - Manganiello.
- Yes, Dottore.
- 1037. - I've just had a fantastic dream.
- You did?
- 1038. I was in Switzerland.
- 1039. And you were taking me
for an operation in a hospital
- 1040. because I was blind.
- 1041. Switzerland. It's beautiful.
- 1042. And Professor Quadri did the operation.
- 1043. The operation was a success
and I was leaving soon
- 1044. with the wife of the Professor.
And she loved me.
- 1045. Switzerland.
- 1046. I remember in Milan
- 1047. when I was a child,
we used to sing a song.
- 1048. Wait a minute.
- 1049. In Africa after all that work
and four dead men,
- 1050. we discovered
it was no longer necessary.
- 1051. And my superior,
"You have ruined us all!
- 1052. "You're only beasts, you are!"
- 1053. "Now wait a second," I said.
"We are men, not beasts."
- 1054. That woman should have
returned to her bed
- 1055. and stayed there all day.
- 1056. God!
- 1057. - Love can certainly...
- What are you trying to say?
- 1058. No. Nothing, Dottore.
- 1059. No. I was saying that sometimes
love can even perform miracles.
- 1060. There!
- 1061. It's them, isn't it?
- 1062. Keep about 60 feet back.
- 1063. There's a car behind us.
- 1064. - So?
- Following us.
- 1065. Nothing the matter with that.
Why are you so nervous?
- 1066. Watch out!
- 1067. Must be something the matter.
- 1068. Don't get out, please, I beg you!
- 1069. - Well, why not?
- I don't know, but I'm frightened.
- 1070. We can't just sit here like this.
- 1071. I'll be right back.
- 1072. Wait here.
- 1073. Luca!
- 1074. I thought you were ill.
- 1075. What is it? What do you want from me?
- 1076. Look out, I'm shooting.
- 1077. How disgusting. I've always said so.
- 1078. Make me work in the shit,
sure, but not with a coward.
- 1079. If it's up to me, cowards,
homosexuals and Jews,
- 1080. they're all the same thing.
- 1081. If it were up to me,
I'd stand them all against a wall.
- 1082. Better yet,
eliminate them when they're born.
- 1083. Attention.
- 1084. Attention.
- 1085. His Majesty King Vittorio Emanuele
- 1086. accepted the resignation
of His Excellency Benito Mussolini
- 1087. as head of the government,
Prime Minister and Secretary of State.
- 1088. His Majesty has named as
head of the government,
- 1089. Prime Minister and Secretary of State,
- 1090. His Excellency Marshal Pietro Badoglio.
- 1091. How elegant you are
with your mama's hat on!
- 1092. You even put on the foxes
Mama brought from Paris.
- 1093. Good for Marta!
- 1094. King Vittorio Emanuele has
accepted the resignation
- 1095. of His Excellency Benito Mussolini
- 1096. as head of the government,
Prime minister and Secretary of State,
- 1097. and His Majesty has named as
head of the government,
- 1098. Prime minister and Secretary of State,
- 1099. His Excellency Marshal Pietro Badoglio.
- 1100. A red apple.
- 1101. Ready? Hail Mary, full of grace...
- 1102. "Hail Mary, full of grace..."
- 1103. - the Lord is with Thee.
- "the Lord is with Thee."
- 1104. - Blessed art Thou amongst women...
- "Blessed art Thou amongst women..."
- 1105. and blessed is the fruit
of Thy womb, Jesus.
- 1106. "... the fruit of Thy womb, Jesus."
- 1107. Holy Mary, Mother of God...
- 1108. "Holy Mary, Mother of God..."
- 1109. pray for us sinners...
- 1110. "... pray for us sinners..."
- 1111. now and at the hour of our death.
- "... now and at the hour of our death."
- 1112. Italo called.
- 1113. - Amen.
- 1114. Now to sleep.
Come on, lie down and sleep.
- 1115. - Italo?
- Yes. Italo.
- 1116. - What did he want?
- He'll expect you at the usual place.
- 1117. Italo. After all this time.
- 1118. How awful they all are!
- 1119. Celebrating because
the King threw out Mussolini,
- 1120. when yesterday they were all for him.
- 1121. I can't wait till we get them out of here.
- 1122. Why see Italo? What's the use of it?
- 1123. If he called it means he needs me,
and I'm going.
- 1124. I was always the one
who took him around.
- 1125. I took him everywhere.
- 1126. He used to say that
when I described things to him
- 1127. it was like seeing them
with his own eyes.
- 1128. Go to sleep.
- 1129. Marcello, you've got to take care,
- 1130. Why?
- 1131. What do you mean?
- 1132. Nothing.
- 1133. Wait, listen.
What are you going to do now?
- 1134. The same as everyone else
who thought like me.
- 1135. When there are so many of us,
there's no risk.
- 1136. I know, but I want to say
the business with Quadri...
- 1137. I don't know what you're talking about.
- 1138. In Paris, Anna,
- 1139. maybe in order
to get me away from you,
- 1140. told me you worked
for the secret police.
- 1141. - And you? What did you answer?
- That it wasn't important.
- 1142. That I was your wife and I loved you.
- 1143. And if you worked for them,
it was your decision.
- 1144. But then, when the Quadris were killed,
- 1145. how scared I became.
- 1146. And what do you think of it now?
- 1147. Well, I think that, after all,
- 1148. it was an important step in your career.
- 1149. That's right.
- 1150. Marcello, don't go out!
- 1151. They could hurt you.
- 1152. I won't be in danger.
- 1153. After all, what have I done? My duty.
- 1154. But why do you want to go?
- 1155. I want to see how a dictatorship falls.
- 1156. Mama! Where are you? I'm afraid.
- 1157. I'm here, darling. I'm coming.
- 1158. Marcello?
- 1159. There's something
that's still stuck to you.
- 1160. - Where?
- 1161. Oh, yes.
- 1162. What about eating?
- 1163. As long as there are cats around,
- 1164. They say cat meat tastes like rabbit.
- 1165. Too bad we didn't meet yesterday.
- 1166. I had a whipped cream cake at home.
- 1167. - With real cream?
- Yes, why not?
- 1168. - You need eggs for that.
- Somebody I met lives in the country.
- 1169. He sends me bread, too.
- 1170. Fresh eggs? Bread?
- 1171. He keeps me supplied.
I never lack for anything in my house.
- 1172. Chickens, butter, fresh cheese.
- 1173. - And potatoes?
- Potatoes, too.
- 1174. If you come home with me,
I'll be happy to make you an omelet.
- 1175. - What kind?
- A jelly omelet.
- 1176. You must be tired
of eating cats all the time.
- 1177. Yes. I ate too many of them.
And they're not so easy to find.
- 1178. - What did you do?
- Ate mice.
- 1179. There are more rats with the cats gone?
- 1180. Yes, but they're all skin and bones.
- 1181. Listen. I don't live far from here.
- 1182. Why don't you come
and have dinner with me?
- 1183. - Is there a place to sleep?
- You can stay.
- 1184. Nice shoes you have. Soft.
- 1185. They were a present.
- 1186. I got a present, too. A Siamese cat.
- 1187. - Was he good?
- Too tough.
- 1188. I have a pair of suede shoes.
You can have them.
- 1189. And I have a nice oriental kimono.
Like Madame Butterfly's.
- 1190. You know who Madame Butterfly is?
- 1191. Lino!
- 1192. - Is your name Lino? You!
- Me? Why?
- 1193. You were a chauffeur, right?
- 1194. - But a long time ago.
- 1195. - You had a pistol.
- I? I don't understand you.
- 1196. And you're alive still.
- 1197. But I don't know you.
What do you want of me?
- 1198. What's that scar?
- 1199. - There was an accident.
- What accident?
- 1200. What do you want?
Take your hands off me!
- 1201. Where were you?
- 1202. What were you doing
on March 25, 1917?
- 1203. Me? I... Who are you?
You must be crazy.
- 1204. What were you doing
on March 25, 1917?
- 1205. Let me alone!
- 1206. And the 15th of October, 1938.
- 1207. Where were you?
What were you doing?
- 1208. What were you doing at 4:00 p.m.
on October 15th, 1938?
- 1209. Where were you?
What were you doing?
- 1210. What were you doing? I've got to know.
- 1211. Murderer! Murderer!
- 1212. He killed a man, a political exile,
- 1213. on October 15th, 1938!
- 1214. Yes, Professor Quadri!
- 1215. Luca Quadri!
- 1216. And his wife Anna Quadri.
- 1217. He's a homosexual, a Fascist!
- 1218. And his name is Pasqualino!
- 1219. Semirama!
- 1220. Pasqualino Semirama!
- 1221. Marcello, don't do that.
- 1222. Marcello, where are you?
- 1223. - Fascist!
- No, Marcello!
- 1224. He, too, is a Fascist. Right here.
- 1225. - What are you doing this for?
- This one's a Fascist.
- 1226. Marcello, no. No, Marcello, please.
- 1227. Marcello, no, no, Marcello!
- 1228. Italo Montanari! Fascist!
- 1229. No, Marcello. Are you crazy?
- 1230. Marcello, why are you doing this?
Please, come back here.
- 1231. Marcello. Marcello!
- 1232. Marcello! Marcello!
