Giorgio Volli?

Come with me ..

Pardon, my sister ...

It's me, Giorgio Volli.

Excuse me, Lieutenant.

I thought ...

4 years of war, but 4 years

of practical work!

For a doctor,

you could not ask for a better school.

You are afraid of death?


The Death also seems to be

afraid of you.

Your whole division is dead.

Finally, no ...

My adoptive parents

ran the Rouxfoundation.

After their death, I remained

to take care of children.

I wanted to become a pediatrician

but the war ...

The Roux foundation?

For idiots?

For children ...


More sensitive.

There is a reason

so we put them in an institution!

Do you continue whith injections?

Of course.

I always say:

"50% Medicine, 50% of faith ...

and it is a miracle".

"The light, I fell at His feet,

as dead.

"He laid His right hand on me,

and said:

"Fear not!

I am the first and the last,

"and the living. I was dead,

"And behold, I am alive ...

"for eternity!"


Dumoulin... cardiac failure...

during the amputation.


This is ...

his short waiting

on the hallway.

- Since when?

- This morning.

It is not my job!

Take care about this with a good sister.

The fat one.

The one who has big ...


I blew.


It is not possible!

Give me that!

You have to

breathe a couple of times!

Look! Gently!

Hold it!

Put the blindfold!

Looking for someone?

Where are the children?


You worked here?

Where are they?

They were evacuated,

four years ago.

The first bombing.

Who took them?

Ms. Knight?

Wait ...

I'll get the address.

They are better off where they are!

A small orphanage, I think ...

In the mountains.

Us, it is the best

of what could happen to them,

because here ...

You saw what the Germans

have made to the garden?

They had a cannon fit for 50km bombing span!

Ah! Here it is ...

Ms. Knight said

Were you in the war ...

too far to return

in furlough.

It is in the southern part.

It is me who keeps the house.

I am the new cashier


These are from you,

these letters to the children?

I followed

but they all came back.

That does not concern me, but ...

You should keep the uniform.

It appeals to women.

It's pretty, huh?

These children have sent ...

There must be a dog,

at the orphanage.

It is a wolf.

The address ...

I noted above.

You can read?

I do not write very well!

Maybe a wolf ...

Who knows what they have

in the head, these children!


It will still kill!

I can not see it!

And with the sun, it stinks!

Do you feel?

God thank the children are gone.

Do not look ...

I buy it!


He wants to buy the horse.

It's meat!

How much?

600 francs.

It provides you with 600 francs!

How much?

600 francs!

It works!

I'll go see the surroundings!

A barley sugar?

Looks like the war

hurt you.

Excuse me, Madame ...

The orphanage of Dr. Degrce?

Three kilometers after church,

beside the marsh.

Good evening.

I'm Dr. Volli.

You're a doctor?

Come quickly!

Who is this?

Miss Catherine.

The daughter of Mrs. Degrce.

Why did yoy made me talking
