An Angel for Satan

from a novel by Luigi Emmanuele

- Welcome, Sir.

- Thank you.


Give that to me.

No. No. Why?

That's fine.

I hope you had a good trip.

My name is Alfonzo...

But everybody calls me Sergeant.

Okay, Sergeant.

- Goodmorning, Sergeant.

- Good day.

Who could that be?

He sure is handsome.

- Lisa!

- We're coming.

- Natalia!

- We're coming.

Are you sleeping, are you sleeping,

Brother John...

Who's singing?

The kids from the school...

come see.

Morning bells are ringing,

morning bells are ringing,"

Ding, dang, dong.

- Who's that?

- It's Victor,

the gardener at the villa.

He's a survivor.

When he chops wood,

he cuts himself.

He's been in the asylum many times.

He won't harm anybody.

- Goodmorning, Sir.

- Goodmorning.

Thank you.

Goodmorning, Sir.

It's not a good time

to travel, Sir.

There is no good time to travel.

But I'm used to it.

- Good day and welcome, Sir.

- Thank you, Count.

I'm happy to see you.

Are you feeling alright?


You came via the lake...

and you're alright?

What should've happened to me?

The bad side of me always hopes

for another tragedy on the lake keep the legend alive

and flourishing.

So your good side must be

very unhappy right now.


Make yourself comfortable.


Would you like a drink?

A Cognac?

Cognac? Cherry?

Or a Brandy? My personal brandy

will warm you up...

- There's nothing like it.

- Yes, Brandy. Thank you.

- I think we'll get along fine.

- So do I.

- To your arrival.

- To your health.

- A cigar?

- No. I don't smoke.

Have a seat.

You know, because of

the extraordinary heat last summer

...the water level of the lake

has declined amazingly.

Although this is truly

a disaster...

Something amazing

has come from it.

You're talking about

the discovery of the statue, Count.

Yes, the statue.

You wouldn't know about this

because you are a foreigner...

If the statue is retrieved

... it means damnation for sure.

As the story goes,

restoration of the statue

...will cause tragedy

to the entire village

Do you still wish to work here?

My dear Count,

I know you've studied the legend,

and you enjoy a good story...

but I don't believe in curses.

I only wish you had told me

about it when you hired me...

Would you have accepted?

But, of course. Without the legend...

There's no reason for me

to reconstruct the sculpture.

But now everything is out

in the open...

If it weren't for my grandson,

Pupi Lauria...

the statue would still

beat the bottom of the lake...

And you wouldn't be here.

I appreciate the story very much

... but I don't believe in curses.

- When can I start working?

- Tomorrow if you'd like...

If you need anything, just ask.

Julian is at your service...

- Do you need anything

in particular? - No, thank you.

I'll have a bottle of my brandy

sent to your chambers...

A glass before you go to bed...

and you'll sleep heavenly.

Come in.

Count, something terrible

has happened.

What's wrong, Julian?

The 2 boatmen who accompanied

Mr Merigi...!

Something horrible, sir Count...

They came ashore to have a drink.

Then they went back to the boat

...they were crossing the lake,

and after a couple minutes...

for no reason...

The boat flipped and sank...

They were good swimmers,

but they couldn't...

They started screaming for help.

Carlos. Victor. The teacher...

They all jumped into the water.

But... too late!...

- They watched them drown!

- Dead!

They were the 2 fishermen

who removed the statue from the lake.

My dear, you can't expect her

to stay in school all her life.
