Efter Brylluppet


No, you've already had some.

Go away!

Come on, Pramod.

You have to go to class.

- They want to meet you.

- Me? What do you mean?

- They want to meet you.

- Why?

I don't know.

They just want to meet you.

The CEO is Danish. He wants to shake

your hand before giving us the money.

Perhaps he doesn't trust us Indians.

- Let him come, I'll shake his hand.

- They want you to go to Copenagen.

I know what he wants,

but I'm not going there.

"This is the cat..."

"...that killed the rat."

It's not possible.

I can't leave the kids.

"That lay in the house..."

"...that Jack built."

Pramod has a birthday soon.

It's not possible, Mrs. Shaw.

"That worried the cat..."

"...that killed the rat."

And then I have to go all the way to

Denmark to shake somebody's hand.

He'll take a photo of me and show

all his rich friends he's done good.

This is not up for discussion.

- I have to think about it.

- No, you won't think about it.

You will go, wear a suit, get

a haircut, behave nice and smile.

Please, Jacob.

You know as well as I do

that this is our last chance.

Otherwise we'll have to close down.

Then these children will

have nowhere to go.

They'll be on the streets.


You owe the children that much.

This is our last chance.

Are there only rich people

where you are going?

- Yes.

- No one is poor?

- No. Some have more than others.

- If I was rich, I'd be happy.

- I know, but people there are idiots.

- You hate all the rich, Mr. Jacob.

Is it because the houses are far

apart that people are far apart?

I'll tell you all about it

when I get back, right?

What's wrong? Pramod?

You're not coming back.

I know it.

I promise that I'll be back

for your birthday.

I told you so.

Pramod, come on.

Go away! Go away!

- Come on...

- Just go away!

Mr. Jacob!

- Why do you have to go?

- Because I have to.

I have to go home

and get some money.

So we can buy new books, medicine

and food. And help all the others.

Do you promise to come

to my birthday?

I swear. And I'll be calling you

every other day.


And that's not going to be a lot of

times, because I'll be home in 8 days.

Perhaps you can take me

there one day.


- Are you hungry?

- Yes.

"In the yard, a flock of sparrows

saw him and began to shout:"

"Tit tit! Tit tit!

Oh, look at Nils Goosey-boy."

"Look at Thumbietot!

Look at Nils Holgersen Thumbietot!"


cried the cock."


"Then the hens came.

Peck, peck, peck..."

We'll stop here for tonight.

You have to sleep.

Into bed with you.

Sleep tight.

Good night.

Good night, Morten.

Good night, Martin.

It will be fun to see

what important thing I forgot.

Yes, it will be lovely.

As long as there's food and wine,

everything will be fine.

- You're not nervous at all?

- No, I'm looking at it as a test.

- Of what?

- Anna will marry many times.

The first wedding is always hard.

With a little luck, it will be okay.

Jrrgen... Jrrgen?


- Mother, aren't you in bed?

- I can't get on line.

Don't speak to me like I'm senile.

Why can't I get online?

There's poker in three minutes.

Why did we have to get

that damn wireless network?

But it's working now. Thank you.

- Sleep tight.

- Don't stay up all night.


- Could we teach her to knock first?

- I've tried, but she's senile.

Only when she wants to be.

- I'll send her to a home tomorrow.

- Do you promise?

- Come back soon.

- Bye, Jacob.

- Bye bye.

- Bye, Mr. Jacob.

That's me.

- May I take your bag?

- No, thanks.

Please step inside.
