fired from a blow gun.

Can you tell us what you did

with this blow gun?

The poison has been used for centuries

by natives of the East Indies.

Perhaps that too is something

you could illuminate.

- Ridiculous.

- Ridiculous?

I'm afraid this is something

rather more than a simple homicide.

We have put in a call to our colleagues

from military intelligence.

This had better be very important.

I don't like to be interrupted.

Thank you for talking sense to them.

- You are performing here?

- Yes, at the Metropole.

The Metropole.

It's Berlin's Folies Bergere.

It's not the kind of place for an artist.

Are you offering an alternative?


Wait! Listen to me.

There's a train

that leaves within an hour.

You must get away.

Get away?

You must not become involved.

But what have I done? Nothing.

Then I must say good-bye.

But come back...

... tonight.

You come here often?

You're quite an adventurer, Captain.

It's you who have been everywhere.

- I seem to make you smile.

- You remind me of Paris.

Of everything that's intriguing,

innovative, different.

If you dislike the army so much,

why do you stay?

Why? Are you offering me

some kind of alternative?

The only real alternative, Captain,

is the one we make for ourselves.

Careful now!

Come and meet everybody.

Here we are, then,

all my friends and relations.

- Good evening, all.

- We'll wake up the horses.

Come on.

Now, this is one of my horses.

His name is Oscar.

- Oscar, go to sleep now.

- Come on.

They're good.

- Very good.

- Experiments.

What's wrong?

Are you thinking

of the man on the train?

Like everyone else, I'm only...

You're not like everyone else.

And you?

I must take you back to your hotel.

What do you want from me?

Last night you returned me
