COLONEL REDL:

2

00:
01:50,100 -- 00:01:51,700

Colonel Redl s story...

3

00:
01:51,700 -- 00:01:54,100

is not based on

authentic documents.

4

00:
01:54,100 -- 00:01:56,500

Actions of the characters

are entirely fabricated.

5

00:
01:56,500 -- 00:02:00,200

This film was inspired

by John Osborne s play

A Patriot for Me ...

7

00:
02:00,200 -- 00:02:02,400

and by historical events

of our century.

8

00:
03:14,000 -- 00:03:17,900

Your grandfather was friend

of his majesty, The Emperor.

9

00:
03:17,900 -- 00:03:20,100

The Emperor once

asked him...

10

00:
03:20,100 -- 00:03:22,900

Well, my friend,

what s new?

11

00:
03:23,800 -- 00:03:27,600

Like the dew

from heaven sent...

12

00:
03:27,600 -- 00:03:30,500

May on him

be blessings spent.

13

00:
03:30,500 -- 00:03:33,700

May they give the strength

for all of his deeds.

14

00:
03:33,700 -- 00:03:36,000

In all lands

may he glory earn...

15

00:
03:36,000 -- 00:03:38,800

our welfare

is his one concern.

16

00:
03:38,800 -- 00:03:40,900

Woe to those

who dare reject...

17

00:
03:40,900 -- 00:03:43,300

his hand of peace,

so circumspect.

18

00:
03:43,300 -- 00:03:46,800

His holy wrath

shall strike them now...

19

00:
03:46,800 -- 00:03:49,900

with laurels

to adorn his brow.

20

00:
03:49,900 -- 00:03:53,300

Very nice, young Redl.

Sit down.

21

00:
03:53,300 -- 00:03:56,900

Maybe you ll become a great

poet of our motherland.

22

00:
03:56,900 -- 00:03:59,400

l haven t heard

such a glorious poem...

23

00:
03:59,400 -- 00:04:02,500

about His Majesty

for a long time.

24

00:
04:02,500 -- 00:04:05,900

Sir, this is the boy,

Alfred Redl.

25

00:
04:05,900 -- 00:04:08,700

l humbly ask

for your support...

26

00:
04:08,700 -- 00:04:11,100

to help him enter...

27

00:
04:11,100 -- 00:04:14,000

the Imperial and Royal

Cadet School.

28

00:
04:14,000 -- 00:04:16,600

Always remember to keep

a straight posture.

29

00:
04:18,100 -- 00:04:20,800

We will be

so proud of you.

30

00:
04:20,800 -- 00:04:23,300

And we shall never forget

what the Emperor...

31

00:
04:23,300 -- 00:04:25,200

has done for us.

32

00:
04:27,000 -- 00:04:28,700

How wonderful

it would be...

33

00:
04:28,700 -- 00:04:31,700

if you would return

as an officer.

34

00:
04:31,100 -- 00:04:33,200

What an honour.

35

00:
04:35,700 -- 00:04:39,200

Your grandpa was just

a poor peasant.

36

00:
04:39,200 -- 00:04:41,800

And you suddenly

get this honour.

37

00:
04:42,600 -- 00:04:45,900

Never forget that the Emperor

made this possible.

38

00:
04:45,900 -- 00:04:47,600

Always be grateful.

39

00:
04:47,600 -- 00:04:52,400

Up, down, up, down,

up, down...

40

00:
04:59,300 -- 00:05:04,400

Hands behind your head!

Jump in place!

41

00:
05:33,500 -- 00:05:35,700

Up and in position.

42

00:
05:40,900 -- 00:05:44,200

Get ready!

Attack, defence, go!

43

00:
05:58,100 -- 00:05:59,800

Redl, Kubinyi! Be careful.

44

00:
05:59,800 -- 00:06:02,100

You ll get a beating

if you break your weapons.

45

00:
06:02,100 -- 00:06:04,600

Third grade,

stop the drill!

46

00:
06:04,600 -- 00:06:07,000

Line up in two ranks

for punishment!

47

00:
06:07,000 -- 00:06:09,300

Redl, Kubinyi, shirts off!

48

00:
06:57,400 -- 00:06:59,900

See Redl, it s snowing.

49

00:
07:09,500 -- 00:07:12,400

Christoph Kubinyi

reporting to his grandma...

50

00:
07:12,400 -- 00:07:14,700

a friend.

51

István Szabó

István Szabó (Hungarian: [ˈsɒboː ˈiʃtvaːn]; born February 18, 1938) is a Hungarian film director, screenwriter, and opera director. Szabó is the most internationally famous Hungarian filmmaker since the late 1960s. Working in the tradition of European auteurism, he has made films that represent many of the political and psychological conflicts of Central Europe’s recent history, as well as of his own personal history. He made his first short film in 1959 as a student at the Hungarian Academy of Theatrical and Cinematic Arts, and his first feature film in 1964. He achieved his greatest international success with Mephisto (1981), which won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Since then, most of Szabó's films have been international co-productions filmed in a variety of languages and European locations. He has continued to make some films in Hungarian, however, and even in his international co-productions, he often films in Hungary and uses Hungarian talent. Szabó became involved in a national controversy in 2006 when the Hungarian newspaper Life and Literature revealed that he had been an informant of the Communist regime’s secret police. more…
