We have been living close to death.


you are drunk.

Tomorrow, I am conquering

the Fortress near the Eger.

Tonight, I am conquering you.

- Ferenc. Ferenc.

Ferenc, no! Ferenc, no!

- I beg you. My baby!

- Love can not hurt the baby.



My baby!

This war without end,

turned me into a brute.

Even when I am with you,

I act like a barbarians.

Erzsebet Honey, forgive me

the pain that I caused you.

I never forgive myself

the loss of our unborn son.

My... Damn. That was close.

See Nadasdy, cannon balls, arrows,

everything mises him.

Is the luck of the devil.

God gave Nadasdy courage and strength.

That's all.

Yes, Bathany.

And wealth... And a beautiful woman.

- You envy him?

- Of course.

Beautiful women are hard to find.

When the master get drunk,

they become as strong as horses,

and then they just go and hunt

a defenceless orphan, like me.

We'll be out here

if we get pregnant and

the Countess finds out.

But you're sweet.


You can have me for nothing.

Come on, Merisi!

Possess me as does the master!

Leave me alone! Get out!

- Open the door, Merisi.

- Who? By God...

Why is it locked?

I'm mixing paints.

See that red...

as our blood.

Symbolizes life and love.


I was drawing from memory.


Tomorrow you'll begin painting

me and my daughters.

You preserve what I have left.

Praise God!

Our Countess is well again.

Countess is taking their young man

to the manor house.

Now she's gonna have

all the fun she wants.

- Yes!

- Shut up!

It's the only thing you think of.

Do you know how many children

her herbs have saved?

I can't capture

the curves of your body.

I need a naked model.

An honest woman shows

her body to no one.

Not even her husband.
