I want to put on a concert for piano

and orchestra.

I see you're anxious to work, um...

and... How's your father?

I brought the music.

No, wait a minute, we don't do things

as fast as you think here.

There's a calendar, a program

scheduled years in advance.

Now, I can understand your interest

...because I have enormous respect

for your training and I love it that

you're a musician;

but you have to take things easy...


Where's the music?


I have an orchestra inside my head.

Are you joking?

shhhh... they're tuning up

Stop fooling around!

Pa... pa papapapa... first

movement... parapparapparapa...

second movement,

this part is beautiful when the brass

dubs the strings... parapara...

third movement...

the violins...

and now a flute comes in sounding

like little girl's voices...

OK, OK, stop...

but a concert is a serious


it takes a lot of preparation...

I need somebody on the piano

Arturo Montero is the best there is at

the moment

A woman, it has to be a woman...

Thank you. Thank you. Any spare


Double bass?

No, piano



Are you married?

What's that got to do with anything?

What's your name?


Think about it...


Thank you

Good afternoon,

we're starting with the finale...

3-50 time.

Let's start pianissimo and slowly

build it up to a crescendo... OK?

3, that's it... crescendo, all crescendo,

that's it...

No! Hold it!

Look beyond the score, because

there's something hidden;

behind every note, there's

something hidden...

and behind every melody

there's a secret.

Come on, now... and!

Better... OK 190 time please

This should be nervous,

let's see, it should be... tense,


That, that's me.

It's a wonderful composition,


Every time I hear it, I feel that, that

I'm being dragged by the sea...

into the depths...

and I like it. That's strange, why do I

like it? why do we like it?

She, she's my sister...

Are you going to sleep here?

You don't like it any more?


Well, your father already talked to the

people at the municipal theater.

Turn the light off.

In the name of the Father, the Son,

the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Brothers, I know that the death of our

loved ones always seems unfair,

that there are moments in life when

we think that we form part of...

My sister is not dead.

She transformed into something else.

I didn't see anything.

I watched from under the water.

There was only that music.


You're Too?

Just keep going straight ahead.

Watch the car!


How do I know you've got what I


You'll just have to see for yourself,

what you see is what you get, right?

All right, no dirty tricks.

Hey, what's the matter, man? Are you

scared? Easy does it man.

My uncle Pato has had them for

years, like,

he tells me they're all valuable and

shit, so I called you right away.

This way.

This is it.

That's it, man.

Does that piano play?

Don't know. It's just there.

And your uncle?

Here he is, then.

Could we have some light?

Yeah, sure... Uncle Pato! We've got


Where did he get this?

He's a musician,

kinda orchestra type.

He played the flute, those yellow


those things. I don't know what

they're called, the rolled up one.

But he hit the bottle. Look at him,

he's a mess...

too much booze.

He played this music, sure,

but something happened to him and

he started drinking and drinking

and never stopped...

How much?

F*ck, I don't know.

Let's say 50,000 pesos?

Fifty thousand pesos for a few loose



Forget it...
