Follow the terrain.


Keep it perpendicular

to the ridge.

That's it.

Under real conditions...

you might have to compensate

for the wind here.

Now, maintain your height.

Watch your height. Careful.

In a real helicopter you can't

just keep flying higher.

How high can I fly?

- Are we taking the elevator?

- All the way up.


- Hello.

- I have an appointment.

He is busy at the moment.

May I be of assistance?

No, it's...

an erotic matter.


How do they expect me

to run a business like this?

No. I had a deal with Leonardo.

No. No.

That's unacceptable.

Look, I gave you strict orders.

Why doesn't anyone ever listen?


Well, then we're just going

to look somewhere else.

That's right,

it changes everything.


twenty-two, twenty one.

Twenty, nineteen...

Ulcom Electronics.

This is the reception desk.

Your car alarm has gone off.

Can you come down?

The noise is really unbearable.

Police precinct.

I kept calling,

and you never did anything.

So now I'm doing something.

I put a bomb in his office.

It will go off in...

forty seconds.

Who is this?

Philippa. Philippa Paccard.


I can't make it before 7:00.

I've got things to do here,

sorry. Wait for me.

All right. I'll meet you

afterwards at home. Bye.

It's so high.

Too high.

Excuse me.

I'll wait for the next one.

No, there's plenty of room.




My name is Philippa Paccard.

What's this,

you want to speak English?

I'm English.

I have the right to testify

in my native language.

What's this all about?

What the f*ck

are you playing at?

She's English.

So what?

She wants to testify

in English.

We'll need an interpreter.

No, no, no.

We don't need an interpreter.

She understands everything.

She understands every word.

Stop playing games!

It's her right.

I don't give a shit

about her rights.

You are going to listen

in Italian...

talk in Italian,

and confess in Italian!

Excuse me...

I can translate.

I'm qualified.

I was getting divorced.

It was over a year ago.

My husband died...ahem...

during the proceedings.

No, he died before.

So you're a widow.

You are accused

in an office building...

which cost the lives

The explosion caused

an elevator to break loose.

There were four people inside.

A father with his two daughters

Three of them

The youngest girl died

No, um...

You are accused of belonging

to a terrorist organization...

is to undermine the state...

and of the cold-blooded murder

of four civilians.

Was it only 4 people who died?

Isn't four enough for you?

No, no,

I just mean the office.

The man in the office...

I put the bomb in his office.

Which organization

do you belong to?

Who trained you?

Where did you get the bomb?

Who gives you orders?


What about your husband?


I don't have...

I don't have a husband.

He's dead.

And how did he die?

He overdosed.

your attention for years.

Who did you call?

Here, the carabinieri.

What did you want

from the carabinieri?

I wanted to talk to them.
