It's me.

I pulled strings.

-I would love to go.


Bach is wonderful.

Although I prefer Shostakovich.

But now the Soviets have

sent him to prison.

Yes, but you know,

I don't support these methods.

But I can tease you, can't I?

Of course.


if you and I were

together again, I...

Vasyl, I...

Look here, from the

Danish reporter.

She was trying to

smuggle this out.

I'll deal with it.

Thank you.

Come on.

Poor people.

Looks like fascists are

winning positions.

They have snipers.

They've shot two of our men.

We'll rescue them.

Those two guys are history.

This fog is impossible.

Marta. Get back here.

Look, when I was in Ethiopia, my

interpreter tried to do something brave.

The newspaper turned

its back on him.

He's in prison now. They won't

even pay for his lawyer.

What the hell do you wanna

risk your life for?

Make the newspaper

owners even richer?

Take the picture

that will turn the world around.

Marta, no! Come back here!

Come back here!

Are you out of your mind?


Don't do that!

It's dangerous!

Well, what about her?

She can't stay out there!


Marta, don't!

Help me.

Shit. Shit. Shit. Shit.



Do something.


Marta, leave it!

Go! Now!

What the hell were you thinking?

I don't know. What

were you thinking?

That picture is important.

Publish it.

I put some brandy in it.

Thank you.

Please. Eat.

Thank you so much.

Pretty good?

-You don't want anything?


Why don't you

become a fashion photographer?

Or sports?

I want my Capa.

Robert Capa is overrated.

Hemingway, too, isn't he?

Everybody is overrated,

but not you.

I didn't say that.

You've had your glory moments.

Now leave room for us.

That was close.


It's coming back.


The papers! The camera!
