Requiem for a Killer

Synopsis: Lucrèce is a contract killer in search of a new life. Specialized in the use of poisons and enamored with opera, she accepts a difficult, final hit in a castle in the heart of the Swiss Alps. Posing as a soprano, Lucrèce must perform on stage during the very prestigious Festival of Ermeux and slaughter one of her co-performers, British baritone Alexander Child, who recently bought a distillery in Scotland, and thus became the only obstacle to a strategic pipeline project with considerable financial ramifications. He just won a long legal battle against British Oil, who now has no other choice but to eliminate him. To complicate things, French counter-espionage learns of the hit and sends Rico, a reinstated former agent, to infiltrate the orchestra, unmask and terminate all who wish harm to Alexander Child. Rico has no information on the killer and has a lot of trouble identifying her amid a horde of suspicious characters: an obnoxious conductor, a particularly proud tenor and a strange

...providing of course that...

...Alexander Child's death...

...passes for an accident.

You always ...

... Delivered an impeccable job,

I agree.

Your reputation

remains unblemished ...

The best ...

the market.

But if I may,

your rates become aberrant.

Your employers

can afford.

Lucretia is the best

for this job, you know.

I get the sum

you ask.

But at that price,

I recommend a no-fault.


Seymour, it's a lease.

She would not

leave you alone.

I am disappointed, Rico.

There are 10 freelancing ...

...'d Have tried something.

- There is a 0 rods,

you would come alone.

- I find you

a small mine, Rico.

This is not your two years

on the run?

For a former service,

it must have been a joke.

- The night was short ...

... Colonel, that's all.

- I know.

Ten years of field

impeccable record of service ...

... The best CV

of the entire workforce.

Why freaked out?

- I have not farted

the leads.

- Refusal of subordination,

incentive ...

... Disobedience, violence

a higher hit and run.

That's a lot for an agent

elite with nerves of steel.

- What happened ...

... With Seymour

is watching.

We do not even

way of working.

Why I'm here,


You could

fall on me before?

I have not stashed.

Why now?

- I rejoined, Rico.

Erase your slate.

We start from scratch.

But this time, no slippage.

- Are you kidding me? I dream!

- No.

I stop.

It's over.

My daughter will be eight years old.

I want to

tell him what I do.

I'm tired of lying to my mother.

I'm tired of lying

to everyone. I'm getting older.

- Lucretia ...

I need this contract.

It is the custom.

You finish in style

with circles.

I ask you just to shift

your retirement two weeks.

T'empocheras a beautiful package.

Two weeks is nothing.
