David, psalm 7

Behold, the wicked man conceives evil

and is pregnant with mischief

and gives birth to lies.

He makes a pit, digging it out,

and falls into the hole that he has made.

And then, I won't pay them.

How silly!

How much did you pay?

- Nothing.

I gave back the other, plus some IOU's.

- What a car!

You paid 3 million for the other.

Why give it away? Wasn't good?

With green leather,

for a week nothing went good.

It's no use, green brings him the jinx!

You leaving? - Can't you see?

And me?

Do what you want.

See you at the "Capriccio".

Right window.


Look... To speak to the prisoners.

Take a seat. We'll call.

- I've been sent by...

Wait for your turn.

But I have to talk urgently to

Daniele Massa. - Wait with the others!

But... - Di Denanzio Luigia.

- Here I am!

Peretti Michelina... - Here.

May I?

Massimo Fontana!

You had a meeting with Daniele Massa?


He was released.


This morning. He went out this morning.

- Thanks. - Nothing.

One coffee.

Miss? Is there lawyer Passamonti?

I'm Fontana, is urgent.

Listen, Passamonti, Daniele Massa

got out this morning. What shall I do?

I understand.


Don't worry, I'll call you back.

Come on, stop that.

By now you should know Massimo.

Grant him an occasional flirt!

- Stop it, Sandro!

What is it, Elena?

Anything wrong?

Why don't you tell me?

- Never mind.

I believe that... I'm expecting a baby.


Well done! And Massimo?

Swear you won't tell him! - He doesn't

know? - No. Don't tell him, got it?

Sure I can't picture Massimo with a baby!

Great! You could launch the trend.

You know it can't be noticed?

What should be noticed, silly?

I'm not sure yet!

Remember not to wear tight belts.

Poor Elena, you're in a mess.

- Why? He'll marry me, he loves me.

I was joking! Massimo is a great guy.

You'll see, everything will be fine.

Where did he go? Why hasn't he come?

- Don't know, must have had to do.

Try and call him.

- He won't be home. - Try!


Is it you?

Leave me alone.

It's open!


I came to see you, earlier.

Three years!

And you come when I'm released?

Why, do you think it's easy?

They give permits only to relatives.

I tried!

- Come or not come, I don't give a damn!

I've spent three years

in jail because of you!


Are you mad?

Say, are you mad?

By God!

You know what it's like, 3 years in jail?

And if I ever deserved the jail,

all the more this holds for you!

But you were here, like a lord!

See how you're settled?

Cause I didn't come to keep you company?

- But it's me who went to jail. The naive!

And I've lost my money with your scams!

You cheated me! You f***ed me over!

You've been so coward.

But at the beginning we were lucky.

- Sure! I had trusted you, the friend.

I went through a lot of trouble!

Take a look. If I wasn't here to fix...

Fixed what?

How many times I wrote you from jail?

You're right, but how could I explain by

letter? Look here. Realize by yourself!

Bullshit! All lies!

- Will you let me talk?

You've always told lies!

Are you tired?

- No, why?

Mom always says that when pregnant...

- Don't be stupid, Sandro.

Stop it.

Mommy,.. where are you going now?

To rest.

- At your home or at his home?

His. - But he's not there!

So you say!

- I told you! No one answered.

As if you didn't know! If he's with

people he cares about, he won't answer.

He did it many times,

even with me there.

Elena, you won't have the complex

of the seduced and abandoned?

Poor Massimo,

is so faithful as to arouse pity.

Believe me, I always was close to you.

When all was well and when all went wrong.

I even took a loss!

We raced too much, if you want,

but you got into trouble all by yourself.

Let's be fair:
if it had gone well,

the money would be yours.

It went wrong...

As indeed to almost all limited

companies come out after the war.

It was a gust.

Don't drink so on an empty stomach.

You're no longer accustomed, I guess.

I am no longer accustomed to anything.

This bed seems so soft that it bothers me.

I went to eat at a trattoria. - But...

why didn't you come straight here?

I was hoping for a miracle.

I wanted to first see a person.

But the miracle did not happen.

I've been in a trattoria.

I can't even stay at a table

with cutlery and tablecloth.

Say, want my advice?

We'll talk business tomorrow.

Now I'll fix you a nice bath.

Wait! I'll give you the royal treatment.

This is an English cologne

so extraordinary that I regret using it.

But you can't stay dressed like that.

Pick something to wear.

The jackets... will barely fit you.



This should fit.

Come on, get moving.

Then we'll do something.

We'll pick some pretty girls.

Come on, Daniele, get moving!

The water is warm. Or you want it cold?

And then, take a shower.

And since you had the good sense to

not to, you'll see the lawyer tomorrow.

And then, tomorrow we'll bicker again.

I too got my wrongs, mind you, but,

you'll see that I couldn't do otherwise.

What could you wear?

Do you prefer... a shirt or a tee?

Your pick.

You're there!


Maybe, I should have knocked.

Or rather not come, right?

- Yeah!



Daniele, show up.

Or you'll be killed by a jealous girl

who thinks you're a Swedish dancer.

So you'll learn to be jealous.

Sorry, I thought you had called me.
