EMPTY (2011)

Do you know how to drive?

- Yes, we have plenty of time.

Not enough fuel.

How far can we last?

- Not the whole trip.

Oh my God, oh, no, no.

- It's okay, no worries.

No alsjblieft, so we lost. What

if the wrong direction?

They do not live without us away, Piper.

I do not know if this is the good way.

We're going to run, no time to lose.

Sh*t, is that a car?




- As an exercise commander.

An exercise

-Commander? It seemed not even on.

My father was a f***ing soldier.

- Really?

These drillers will give you really down,

if you had something out.

Oh yeah, I forgot your military background.

Yeah, interesting.

- If we wanted to see it for you.

We would be living here year round, so fish.

So in the wild, make a campfire.

- I see the fun in that.

I feel like a real guy here, you know?

Not bound in an office,

gazing at my computer.

Scour the Web as a bloody zombie.

Same office, which ensures that we

can pay the rent?

This here is as it should be

before one makes a mess.

Honey, I love to town ... No, I love it.

Perhaps you are even a few days to hang out.

Oh yeah, nice balls into the woods here

for five days is definitely not enough?

Thanks for this beautiful view, very sexy.


It's better here than stay there, where everyone

fights for a piece of junk.

You know, I do not care if

they all make to the ground.


What the hell was that about?

- Very strange.

A hippie.

- Not all in a row.

Fighting for a piece of junk?

Yes, and they all get the f***.

- Probably stoned.

Not too close.


Tastes good.

Look at you, it's a campfire.

What do you think?

- Think?

You're beautiful.

Thank you.

How would you feel if I were

to ask you to marry?

Um, you ask me that?

I mean, I have no ring or

anything, I'm just saying ...

I see us the rest of our lives together.

What do you think about going to marry me?

Surely you can at least

show a little interest?

I do not say I did not do?

- With that expression on your face?

What should I do? I was only just thinking.

What do you think, how

would your father react?

- No, not at all.

Or how our parents met for

the first time would meet?

And how terrible it all will not.

Stop it.

I'm sorry that I have started. It

was stupid, I was somewhat excited.


Are you awake?

Are you awake?

- Yes, what is it?

I'm sorry.

- Do not worry about it.

Are you sure?

- Yes, definitely.



Can you get something for me: some

with cherries and pineapple vruchtencakeje?


- Thank you.

What is it?

No gasoline here. I think

they're not even open.

Have you tried the door?


Something strange going on here.

Yes, I have voice mails from my father.

Everyone wonders if all is well with me.

Tell me that this is a joke.

- What? What is it?

That sign on the door says

closed due to gas crisis.


- Look there!


Have you seen cars on the way here?

No, no, not me.

I'm going to call my brother,

I know it either.

I'll call you back, then I know what to do.

Are you serious?

I love you, man, you see.

Yes Mom, listen, I gotta go ..

I have to find out.

Okay, I'll call you. I gotta

go I love you, Doeg.

My mom says that in California,

no gas. Nothing, though one week.

Stores have already closed because

nobody could work.

My brother says that Boston is a madhouse.

Are you okay with him?

- Yes, he sounded good, but ...

It's pathetic, because I think he

has more fun too.

I see no way.

- How far is Cambridge?

About 600 km.

- So far it is not.

That's it.

How far do you think we

can go with this tank?

Turn off the ignition.

It's official. We can in no way home.

There is still everything is possible.

The President has assured us

that gasoline is ahead next week.

The army will operate military food

drops and care where needed.

Meanwhile, New York on fire in

Chicago doin 'too bad ...

That does not yet ...

We need to really figure out

how it managed to come.

... It will take some time before petrol

again will be available to the public.

It took a while before I could get

People just do not get

the news they need.

But it's why I highly appreciate

that you came here

to try to transfer the

news to the people.

No trouble hearing.

- I think this ...

I just need a little

convincing ends have

they inform me that we

can save gas ...

Listen, I need to stop. I

have to change clothes.

Here, now?

I wear these clothes for five

days. I feel dirty.

I need to purify thoughts.

Hey, why do not we go to

my father. The summer cottage.


- Yes, it is not far from here.

I'm sure we catch up with the fuel we have.

There must be a better place where we can go.


- No idea, Kishidi motel?

We'll go near me. Wait a few days.

You know, see what happens, we know nothing.

Why not go to that house? He's

not himself, he's in England.

Listen, I do not want help from your

father, I get there damn it acidic.

Do not be ridiculous. Piper,

we can find some.

there one week. No problem.

That could be longer. This

can not continue, Piper.

Probably some political game. Hold the oil

tap as close to us.

We keep it as full and then back to normal.

What are you talking about?

Who is stopping us?

The Middle East.

- Who? Which country?
