We must solve the energy crisis.

And we will solve it by building

this thermonuclear plant here

in this area over which

we're flying now.

Of course we'll have to level off

those hills to make room for it.

Mr. Prime Minister,

our problem is to get heat

and convert it

into electrical energy.

Now in our plant,

we will get heat by the fusion

of atoms with laser beams.

And when we're in operation,

we'll supply electricity

for this entire third-world area.

Just think, up to now

temperatures like 300 million degrees

can be found only

at the center of the sun.

That's not quite true, Mr. Caine.

Not only in the sun.

Also at the center

of a hydrogen-bomb explosion.

I'm afraid I didn't

catch your name before.

I'm afraid no one told you

what it is, Mr. Caine.

A simple press attach

is not important.

Anyway, my name

is Sara Golan.

Do you mind if I take

a few more pictures?

The panorama"; yours.

Until Caine Enterprises

blows it up.

Ms. Golan, let me show you something.

I don't think you've ever seen

anything like this before.

- "Jesus."

- Yes.

Latin. There's no "J"

in the Roman alphabet.

This could be

the cave of the vision

and that name lesus

written out there

- might act as a protection.

- Huh?

There were some small

Christian communities

in this area

around the second century.

And the legend is

that from such a cave

one of the prophets

had a vision of the end of the world

as described in "The Apocalypse."

You know "The Apocalypse"?

Very vaguely, I'm afraid.

It speaks of a monster

with seven heads and 10 horns.

And on the 10 horns, 10 crowns.

It rises from the sea

and destroys mankind.

Perhaps the prophet saw the monster

rise from the sea outside.

Mr. Prime Minister,

I should like very much

for you to just

push this up

and the first charges will go off.

You're very kind, Mr. Caine.

But I believe that this honor

belongs to you.

Thank you.

Stop before it's too late!

- No! No pollution!

- The earth is disappearing.

Pollution poisons.

It destroys the very

atmosphere of this planet.

By the work of men who are

about to infect this planet

with another monstrosity!

The countdown

for annihilation has begun!

What do our children want to be

when they grow up?


What do our children want to be

What do our children want to be

I can't tell you how happy I am to

have you in our home, Your Excellency.

Not all of your countrymen

seem to feel as pleased,

- my friend.

- Robert!

- Hello, darling.

- Good to see you.

And you too.

Later I want to talk to you.

And don't forget.

You know, the same thing happened here

a couple of hundred years ago

when they had to readjust

the calendar?

People marched on parliament

in thousands,

screaming, "Give us

back our days."

Yes, but these opinions are getting

stronger in my country too.

My political opponent Harbin is

basing his electoral campaign

on opposition

to our nuclear project.

Yes, I know.

People should understand

that scientific progress today

is like a truck without brakes

hurtling downhill.

It's stupid to think of stopping it.

...when they grow up?


What do our children want to be

when they grow up?

- Alive!

- Prime Minister,

the only hope left is to steer it

down into the valley

without breaking anyone's neck.

What do our children want

to be when they grow up?


What do our children want

to be when they grow up?


What do our children want

to be when they grow up?


What do our children want

to be when they grow up?


What do our children want

to be...

Mother, you're looking

absolutely gorgeous.

I wish I could say

the same for you.

Why aren't you wearing black-tie?

Oh, come on. You know Father doesn't

give a damn about all this protocol.

- What about me?

- You know what I mean.

This is Father's big evening.

Let's not spoil it for him, shall we?

My compliments to the hostess.

Everything is marvelous--

as always.

- Hi, Robert.

- Hello. Having a good time?


And it'll even be more marvelous

when we celebrate the end

of our work on the project.

Hi, Robert.

Lovely party.

- You're looking very well.

- Caine Enterprises isn't even

going to start it.


You know very well

I've always had many doubts

about the project.

That's why I wanted the society

to be able to give up the contract

after the first phases

of location prospecting.

Yeah, but the prospecting

turned out excellently.

Other things haven't, Robert.

I've decided

Caine Enterprises will give up

construction of the plant.

You decided?

Must I remind you that I control

the majority of the stocks?

Let me remind you of something...

I'm not the young punk full of ideas

who came here from America 20 years ago.

I changed your father's

old-fashioned setup

into a modern industry.

The demonstration outside- popular

opinion here and everywhere else.

Harbin"; opposition out there.

Nobody wants

this project completed

except you and that crazy old man.

Maybe I'm crazy too.

Maybe you are.

If we go ahead and the world

suddenly yells stop,

Caine Enterprises is ruined.

We'd never recover.
