Watch out!

Leila! Leila!


I have seen death.

I know, dear.



You shouldn't worry.

He's coming out of shock

and only sustained overall bruising.

Nothing serious.

She'll spend a couple of days

under medical supervision

and then she'll go back home

without a problem.

Thank God.

Are you telling me the truth?

Patricia, why would I lie to you?

I don't know.

When I saw her, there was something

strange about her.

I'm not an expert in traumatology.

- But I fully trust Dr. Warren.

- Yeah.

Mom, I think that you're overreacting.

Doesn't the doctor say that Leila is OK?

Thank you, Deborah.

I don't intend to lie to your mother.

May I see her?

Yes, but just for a moment.

Richard, wait.

What is it?

You didn't go to any birthday party.

Nor did you go to any colleague's house.

You had an accident

because you were drugged, right?

As soon as you can, ask your sister.

She was driving.

Richard, you're destroying her.

Leila is not the same person

since you got back from Africa.

Maybe not. We all have changed a bit.

I ask you to forget her. Leave her alone!

Dear John, do not ever get

in between two people in love.

It brings bad consequences.

I'll do anything

to get her to end things with you.

You're a nice guy.

I wouldn't like to have you as an enemy.

That's all I wanted to say.

Switch on the light, miss.

Come closer.


I don't want to see anyone.

But, Leila, I'm your mother.

You go away! All of you!

- Leave me alone.

- Quick, get a dose of Librium!

Don't touch me!


- Out!

- Calm down, Leila!

Don't touch me, I said! Get off!

- Dear!

- Out! All of you!

Listen to him, my little girl!


Yes, Ronald?

Mr. Gibson is waiting.

Thank you, Ronald. Show him to my office.

- Hi, John.

- How are you, Reverend?

Very well. Go on.

Keep looking at the book.

It's an extraordinary piece

from Henry VIII's reign,

when our church still depended on Rome.

It's an intriguing piece.

But you have so many.

It's my hobby,

collecting anything of value.

Come, sit down. I'll make you some tea.

It's been a while since you visited us.

You're right. I deserve a good reprimand.

How are your mother and your sisters?

- That's what I wanted to talk about.

- Something wrong?

- Leila.

- What's wrong with her?

I wouldn't know how to explain it.

She had a car accident recently.

Nothing serious, or so it would seem.

But she has changed.

Actually, since she got engaged

to Richard Harrington.

You know him, right?

Richard Harrington? Of course I know him.

He was my student in high school.

If I remember correctly,

he and Leila met then.

Richard was a terrific student.

He graduated as an archaeologist

with the best grades,

and I know that he went to Egypt

to work on his thesis.

I got him a job as an assistant

at my university.

Could you talk to him?

To Richard? About what?

He may listen to you.

I don't want him to go back to Leila.

I have the feeling that they take drugs

and frequent heretic circles.

That's a very strong accusation, John.

I know. But I'm convinced.

I don't have conclusive evidence,

but I'd swear that Richard

introduced Leila

to ideas that he got from Africa.

She was on drugs

when the accident happened.

You should have seen her, Adrian.

She's not the same person.

- No.

- How has she changed?

She rebels against everybody.

Sometimes she's gone for days,

and when she comes back,

she doesn't give explanations.

And Mother tolerates everything.

She even forbade me to tell her anything.

Leila was always difficult.

And you know how kids are today.

We don't always like

their concept of freedom.

But that doesn't mean

it isn't sometimes justified.

Then my visit is in vain.

No, I'll talk to Leila,

but I'm afraid all that is just a fantasy.

I'll find out soon.

I will watch them constantly.

I'm almost sure you're wrong.

I hope you're right.

I don't want to bother you anymore.

I'll send the car to pick you up

tomorrow at 11:
00 a. m.

- But...

- I'm sorry. You must come.

Thank you, Udo.

- Good morning, Reverend.

- Good morning.

I'm glad to see you again.

Thank you, Christian. How's your wife?

She's fine, Father.

Come, the lady is waiting for you.

Hello, Patricia.

Welcome, Adrian.

John told me that you would come.

You look the same

as the last time we saw each other.

Something to drink?

Sure, a glass of sherry.

I see you haven't changed your habits.

You have to stick to them

if they're not too bad.

By the way...

I have wondered a lot lately

why did you stop coming here?

I'll be honest.

I stopped coming the day I felt

that I was no longer welcome.

But how can you say that?

You've always been welcome here.

For more than two years,

you've been our spiritual counselor.

A good reason to be disliked,

don't you think?

Sorry, Patricia. I was joking.

To be honest, I haven't come

because I'm very busy.

Come on. That excuse is no good.

I came because John visited me yesterday,

and told me about Leila.

What did he tell you?

Well, that you had some problems.

Problems? John is the problem.

I don't know why he picks on my daughter.

He keeps asking her questions

and trying to put up obstacles

so that she stops seeing Richard.

- You know Richard well, right?

- Yes, of course.

But John is not acting like that

for no reason.

He wants the best for his sister.

It's understandable.

But John has no reason to oppose

her relationship with Richard.

I know my daughter well,

and also John and Deborah.

But John... John is bitter.

He has no friends. And it bothers him

that the others have fun and are happy.

He spends his life locked up

in his greenhouse with his damned plants.

John is a great guy.

Even if you think otherwise.

Maybe the fact that you're

his stepmother has distanced you.

I love the three of them the same.

I don't make any distinctions.

No one knows that better than you.

Can I say hello to Leila?

Of course.

She's at the pool with some friends.

Would you follow me?

Bork, come on. Let's go.


Next to me.

Hello, Leila.

Reverend, what a surprise.

Yes, it's a bit strange

that we meet at a pool, right?

I'm glad to see you after all this time.

The university and the vicarage

take up all my time.

But you don't come to see me either.

And the same goes for Deborah.

I haven't seen her in ages.

There she is.

She wins.

Call her.

Deborah, come here.

- You play for me.

- OK.

It's your turn.

You have two lovely daughters, Patricia.

My dear Mr. Dunning, did you get lost?

- No, my God.

- Will you stay for lunch?

Some other time.

Go, your friends are calling you.

Come with us!

- I'll see you, Reverend.

- Sure.

Leila, they call you too.

I'll go in a minute.

Bork, do you see this gentleman?

I hate him.

I hate him for the bad times

he's given me translating the classics.

How dare you!

It's OK. She's only telling the truth.

By the way, I was expecting

to see your fianc here.
