You need to wake up, someone is here

Someone is here.

Where's your daddy?

- He hasn't done anything.

- No, but where is he?

I know this seems strange,

but I think it will all end up alright.

I just want you to be happy.

Do you understand?

Whatever the outcome of the trial,

it's for the best.

- You will have a real family.

We are a real family.

Hella, come with us now.

You cannot be alone here.

He'll be home tomorrow.

Are you going to jail?

I won't stay with someone else.

I hate them. I hate that they look at me funny.

But that's how it is.

- Then I'd rather die.

- Stop it.

- What do you want me to do?

- I don't know.

It's your fault. It isn't me

who made things this way.


She was too old.

She can't come.

Let's go.

- Should I put it here?

- Yes, that's fine.

They are coming!

- Where are we going?

- You'll see. It'll be okay.

Thinking about Steja?

You can get a new dog later.

Pass them.

Get past them!

Do you think anyone has been here before us?

Maybe in the Middle Ages?

This will be fine. Here is good.

- What are you making?

- A toilet.

It sounds like they are hurt.

They're just animals.

Maybe they will come after us.

Do you understand?

- Are you afraid?

- No.

- Are you cold?

- No.

Promise you won't fall asleep before me.

Remember that girl who starved

to death at tennis camp?


She was just skin and bones.

They tested her. They put

two chairs a little bit apart,

and told her to go between them.

"I can't, it is too much," she said.

They forced her to try.

She said they cheated and moved the

chairs when she wasn't looking.

I will live forever.

So will I.

But I'm not sure. Perhaps you'd get

tired of it after a thousand years.

Maybe so.

Be quiet.

Stay there.

There was no-one.

Just a moose.

- Can we swim afterward?

- Maybe. If I have time.

What do you mean?

We've got all the time.

We'll see.

He seems so...

I don't know.

He doesn't look like a person who

would kill somebody. Not that kind.

I have met many murderers,

and none were like him.

"I have not written in a long time."

"But Christmas is fast approaching."

"The Christmas programs on TV

will be very good."

"Today I bought Christmas presents."

"But I'm not going to say what,

just in case he finds the diary. "

"Today was the first snow, but it

melted away. Hope there's more to come."

Dad? Did you really kill that man?

- Do you think I did?

- I know you did.

It was an accident. Self-defense.

- Otherwise he would have killed me.

- So you had no choice?

Yes, something like that.

How does it feel to shoot someone?

It's like... It doesn't feel real.

How old was he?

Did he have children?

No, he had no children.


I'm freezing.

- Take this.

- It's wet!

Take mine then.

What the hell are you doing?

We might need that.

You said it was outdated

Go and wash yourself,

you look like an idiot.

I'm sorry I was so stupid.


- Friends?

- Ok.

Wipe it off - there, on your face.

Sometimes you are so f***ing stupid.

- Why are you never wrong?

- I don't remember anything.

I think that's not true.

I think you remember everything.

Tell me all the places you have been.

Marseilles, Rotterdam, Kavalla.

Faroe Islands, Kiwayu, San Francisco.

Las Palmas and Gothenburg.

What was the most fun trip?

Portugal, maybe.

There was a little boy there who hung

aeound me. He was always happy.

He said nothing, he just followed

me. Like a puppy.

Before we left, I asked if there was anything

he wanted. "Shoes," he said.

We went down to the city

to buy a pair for him.

The damn clerk wouldn't let him try

them on, because he was so dirty.

So I got a bag, which he

could put on his foot.

It was wonderful.

I've never seen anyone so happy.

He ran away, like an arrow with sneakers on.

When I got home, Mom said

she was knocked up.

Do you wish I was a boy?

I don't want anyone but you,

you must know that.

I wanted to buy land in Faro,

build a house.

A balcony over the sea.

Fall asleep listening to Blgesus.

Do you like that?


- The capital of Hungary?

- Bucharest.

- No, that's in Romania. Almost.

- You can't... I cannot think.

Jo. Bucharest, Romania.

Budapest is in Hungary.

Imagine that Hungary has a bud.


Hungary has a bud.


I can just as easily imagine

that Romania has a bud.

No, Hungary has a bud.

Remember that, and you'll never forget.

Have you written it down?

That way, you'll remember it.

- School will be back in session.

- When?


What did you do?

What did you eat?

You do not eat mushrooms without

asking me first. Spit it out!

- Stop it now!

- Spit it out! Spit it up!

Out with it! All of it!

You can die!

Do you understand that?!

- We're fools if we eat mushrooms.

- You're an idiot!

- Maybe, but we have to survive.

- For how long?

Calm down.

You're a thief and a murderer. I won't

be like you, and have to hide.

What time is it?

What time is it?

- What is it?

- I don't know.


I must have salt.

- When are you coming back?

- Tonight.


F***ing f***ing f***ing bullshit.


F***, f***, f***!





It is so nice to have a visitor.

I can go months without

bumping into another human.

Wasn't I beautiful?

She is married to the camera, somebody said.

But it's a marriage that doesn't last.

Want to see some of what I'm doing

now? Here, I sit and work.
