LJUBLJANA 2008, SLOVENIA PRESIDES

OVER THE EUROPEAN UNION.

This is room 410.

The gentleman had a stroke,

a heart attack... something.

Call an ambulance, please,

as soon as possible.

Thank you.

Wake him up.

Do something.

It took me an hour today

to get from Preseren Street

to the central station.

I took some Dane

to the airport.

The entire downtown

was closed to traffic,

did you see that?

Unbelievable... one hour

for a few hundred meters.

Complete chaos.

It's no good, if you ask me.

This EU... it just costs us

a lot of money.

All right.

And here's another 200.

Anything else?

I've got something

to tell you, okay?

What?

Just promise

you won't tell anybody.

I promise.

I bought a flat, a new one.

What do you mean?

How could you buy a flat?

An opportunity cropped up.

The Housing Stock

offered flats for sale

and I took a loan.

Why are you staring at me?

Sorry, I am in shock.

It's on Mesarska Street,

in that new block.

Awesome.

Did your dad chip in?

How could he?

He hasn't got anything.

Then how could you raise

that much cash?

I told you. I took a loan.

And how are you paying it off?

With student jobs.

Oh, come on, student jobs.

You're messing with me.

Here you are.

Thanks.

You're welcome.

So how's life in Ljubljana?

Okay.

That's all you ever say,

As if nothing won'th

mentioning ever happens.

I passed the exam.

Congratulations.

That's my girl.

Listen, have you heard about

that German that got killed?

What German?

I thought you'd know more

since you live there.

Come on, eat before it gets cold.

Yes, here it is.

"A German member

of the European Parliament

found dead in a hotel room."

A call girl had visited him

just minutes before he died.

Imagine... a call girl who goes

by the name Slovenian Girl.

The Police are trying to find her

to get some answers.

It's all here in the paper.

I'm running late, you know.

Wait, let me give you

some money.

It's enough for the rent,

but there's isn't much extra.

For some chewing gum maybe.

Thanks.

Gotta rush, bye.

Take care.

And stay a good girl.

Bye.

F*** off.

What do you want?

How did you know

I was coming?

- I spoke to your old man.

- Leave my father alone.

I meant no harm.

I just asked him about you,

because I haven't heard

from you lately.

You don't return my calls

or answer messages.

What's going on?

What do you want?

You don't get it, do you?

- What?

- Nothing.

You'll get your money back,

don't worry.

- Are you seeing someone else?

- No.

- Honestly?

- Now stop pestering me.

I thought you had fallen

for some guy

from the University.

Want a cigarette?

What do you want?

I've decided to divorce Polona.

I've already told her.

Don't divorce her because of me.

I'm serious, Greg.

It makes no sense.

We're like yin and yang, remember?

What yin-yang? Cut it out.

Come on, I've got to study

for my exams

and work on my thesis.

I have no time for anything else.

- Let me give you a ride.

- No, thanks.

Come on, I just offered you

a ride, nothing else.

No, I like to walk.

And please don't wait for me

at the University anymore.

Last year I was so nervous

at the exam that I threw up.

Really?

Yeah, I remember that.

So this year I try my best to attend

his classes regularly.

Well, if you're lucky

and he has a good day...

So I need two of his

good days in a row...

one to persuade him

to let me take the exam,

and the other to pass it.

Would it be possible for me to take

the exam tomorrow?

I can come anytime you say.

Listen, you didn't

show up last time.

It's not that simple.

I've studied thoroughly.

I've read all the notes

and everything.

I had some problems.

We all have problems.

I know, but I was...

Alexandra, what is it?

I've always liked you,

but you know that

I don't make exceptions.

I know, but I've been

through a lot lately.

Can you be

a little more specific?

I was ill.

I see. What did you have?

A tumor.

A tumor?

Yes.

What... what kind of tumor? Hi.

I had it removed surgically.

Was it successful?

I hope so.

Okay, I'll check my calendar

and see when you can come.

Some time next week, all right?

Thank you.

Take care of yourself.

What do you want?

I see you've been spending again

instead of paying your debts.

Let me go.

This is heavy.

- Let me help you.

- No, thanks.

I moved out.

Isn't she pregnant?

You're a real pig.

How can you afford

such a vase?

You used to be so short

you couldn't buy cigarettes.

You're a jerk.

Grab the door.

Can I come upstairs?

- Ciao.

- Ciao.

- This is it?

- Yes.

- Here, this is for you.

- Thanks.

- May I?

- Sure.

It's wet outside.

I can't believe it.

It's nice, isn't it?

Wow, this is...

I'm speechless.

- Is there another room?

- Yes, a bedroom.

Anything else?

And a bathroom.

Well, it's been established

that a representative

to the European Parliament

Helmut Buder had died

of natural causes.

The autopsy has confirmed

the cause of death was cardiac arrest.

That has already

been reported.

What about a mysterious girl

who was with him... the Slovenian Girl?

Tell me when our police have

managed to trace anybody.

- No comment.

- Meaning that you still

have not found the girl

who called the police?

The investigation continues

and we shall do our best.

No, this is not a good time.

I have lectures.

In a couple of hours

would be better.

I see. Okay.

I'll be there in no time.

Do you work alone

or with some other girl maybe?

Alone,

and just occasionally.

Are you new

to this business?

You shouldn't be asking

such questions.

It took me a while to find your number

among the ads, that's why.

I've changed

the number, so what?

Just give me the money.

You'll get it,

don't worry.

Let's have a talk first.

What do you want

to talk about?

Business.

What business?

Who's that?

Relax.

It's not the police.

- Hi.

- Hi.

Traffic in the city is a mess.

Ah, a pretty girl.

Hi, I'm Peter.

Just give me the money.

We have a business

proposal for you.

Wort you sit down?

No, thanks.

Look, you're a great girl,

good-Iooking and smart.

Listen, just pay me and that's it.

Wait, you'll get your money.

Let's talk some sense.

You can't work on your own.

It doesn't work that way.

A lot of girls like you work for us.

Listen, let's talk sense.

Just let me go.

I wanna go home.

Let me go, please.

- Where do you live?

- It doesn't matter.

Please, don't let me fall,

I beg you.

No no no.

Do you want us to drop you?

Would you like that?

To fly like a bird?

Will you obey us

and do what you're told?

I will, I will.

Say it..."I will do

whatever you tell me to do."

I will do whatever

I'm told to do.

Repeat it...

"I will do whatever

I'm told to do."

Louder.

I will do whatever

I'm told to do.

- Should we pull you up now?

- Yes.

Okay, give me your hand.

Huh?

Huh?

Pete, let's pull her up.

Calm down.

Everything will be fine.

Do you hear me?

F***, you're idiots.

Do we have a deal?
