This sucks.

Jens, what's up?

Can you bring us a few beers?

You're getting on my nerves.

- Know what I'm doing?

- Bringing me a beer?

- Going for a swim.

- You forgot something.

I don't think so.

Meinhard, throw me a beer!

Can you do it?

Just what I wanted to see! You deserve it!

You shouldn't have moved.

Freshened up now?

Tommy, you should've kept drifting.

I would've fished you out at the site.

Look, a Fata Morgana.

Where did they come from?

- Take it off!

- Nice and slow!

Real slow.

Look at that.

Hot stuff.

Here's your beer.

Tommy, watch this.

Vincent, get it!

Go for it!

We've got the hat, at least.


My lady.

Come and get it.

Can I have my hat back?

What do you want?

Give her the hat.

What is this? Come here.

Give her the hat.

Come on, give me my hat!

You're right. Come and get it.

Viara, be careful!

Look at that.

Son of a b*tch, give me my hat.

You pig!

Quit jerking her around and give her the hat.

Yes, Mom.

Enough. Give me my hat.

No! Viara! No!

Vincent, what are you doing?


Come back!

Sure, you're all smarter.

You went a bit too far, huh?

Isn't the heat driving you crazy?

- Not yet.

- Get a hat.

- I've got one down below.

- I'm heading up.


- Get the machine out of the sun.

- Alright.

I want to go that way, not that way.

You can't beat me.

They're mine.

- I've got...

- What?

No, no.

You. Cigarette?

I don't have any.

Where are you from?


Where's this guy from? You know him?

We're getting acquainted.

I just asked for a cigarette.


Sophisticated people, educated!

Bravo, you two.

Having a nice chat with the German.

- We're telling the guy...

- After I refused him a cigarette.

I'm telling him there used to be Germans here.

There used to be, but...
