Are you upset, son?

- A bit.

- Why?

Because you were late

to pick me up.

- But why do you think I was late?

- Because of the traffic.

So if you know why I was late,

why are you still upset?

Because I thought

you did it on purpose.

Have I ever made you

wait on purpose?


Robin Hood is never late!

He just hides.

Youre not Robin Hood,

and you werent hiding.

Youre right.

Sorry I was late.

I forgive you.

It was a very dangerous place

for anyone who entered.

King Richard lived happily

with his daughter, Maid Marian.

But Richards jealous brother,

Prince John,

wanted only one thing:

to seize the throne.

The day came when the enemies

of England declared war,

and Richard had to leave to fight.

The cruel and greedy-

Look at him!

Prince John suddenly seized power and

sent his soldiers across the kingdom.

And where-

The neighbor from the 4th floor

wants a word with you.

- Which neighbor?

- Negoescu.

- Good evening.

- Good evening.

- Sorry to disturb you.

- No problem.

Well, maybe its out of order,

but I have a problem

I wanted to discuss with you.

- Come into the kitchen.

- No, I dont want to keep you long.

- Whats up?

- I need to borrow some money.

- How much?

- 800 euros.

I can repay it

in a month, maybe two.

Im sorry.

I dont have it.


I dont even have 700.

Im struggling right now.

Im desperate.

I dont know what to do.

The bank's going to

repossess my house.

- How much was the mortgage?

- 76,000 euros.

- Thats a lot.

- The interest alone is 17,000.

- When did you take it out?

- In 2006.

- When did you last pay?

- About 3 years ago.

You should keep up with

the repayments, or they get out of hand.

I paid the principal.

Its the interest that's

killing me.

- Whats the rate?

- 13%.

- 13%? Why so much?

- That was the deal.

- Swiss Francs?

- No. Euros.

I was an idiot.

7 or 8%, I could manage.

Mines 8%, which seems a lot.

When you have a salary, when

youre working, its easier to cope.

- But since my company closed...

- What company?

I had a publishing house.

It went bankrupt.

It was going really well.

Then the financial crisis hit

and it all went to hell.

A survey said only 2% of Romanians

read more than one book a year.

- In fact, I didn't publish books.

- No?

I made brochures, leaflets

for promotional campaigns.

I see.

I made a book for the Orthodox Church,

but it didnt earn us much.

But the promotional campaigns

brought in good money.

Then the crisis hit

and it all went to hell.

Neighbor, Im really sorry

but I cant help.

800 euros is a lot for me

right now.

I've got repayments on my car

and my apartment. I really cant.

- I understand.

- I'm really sorry.

- Sorry to have disturbed you.

- Not at all.

- Goodbye.

- Goodbye.

If youre scared, Ill go alone!

Alone? Of course not!

cried his comrades.

The day of the celebration came.

In a clearing stood the stage

for the archery competition.

Prince John sat down.

Maid Marian stood behind him.

Disguised as a beggar,

a big hat pulled down over his face,

Robin Hood took to the stage.

His eyes met those of the Maid

Can you come a minute?

He wants to tell you something.

You carry on reading.

- From where?

- Here.

There is a legend

in my grandparents' village.

They say my great-grandfather

buried his treasure

before the Communists came.

I want to hire a metal detector guy

to see if anything's there.

If you pay, Ill give you half

of whatever we find.

Did someone

in your family tell you this?

My grandfather mentioned something,

but he wasn't very clear.

I remember...

when they took him to hospital,

before he got into the ambulance,

he called me over and said:

Take care of the house.

He only said it to me.

I was his favorite. He loved me a lot,

and wanted me to be a priest.

My grandfather was a priest himself.

Sadly, he never came back

from the hospital.

- He had a heart attack and died.

- God rest his soul.

I'm thinking that when he said:

Take care of the house,

maybe he was saying take care,

because theres treasure there.

Does your mother or father

know anything?

My father never got along with

my grandfather.

He was my mother's father.

I asked my mother, but she

didnt know anything.

You said your great-grandfather

buried the treasure, right?

- Yes.

- So why didnt he dig it up?

- Who?

- Your grandfather.

He couldnt, because

they didnt live there anymore.

In 47, the Communists

kicked them out of the house.

They were deported to Caracal

for 4 years,

then they came back and stayed

with relatives and neighbors.

I only got the house back later,

after the revolution. Around 98.

I think...

this could be

good business for you.

I dont have the money right now.

I really dont.

I went to hire a metal detector.

They asked for 800 euros.

But if you can find it cheaper

somewhere else

- Was your great-grandfather rich?

- Yes, very.

And your great-grandmother?

- What about her?

- Did you know her?

- No, she died earlier, in the 50s.

- I'll think about it and call you.

Where will you get 800 euros?

I have 300 in my account.

If I dont pay the bills this month,

thats another 200.

Maybe you could ask

your father for the rest.

Why dont you

ask him yourself?

You know he cant stand me.

Its not that he cant stand you.

He doesnt love you

but he can stand you.

Better if you ask.
