Vladimir died long time ago in desert

because of his sins!

But having seen the light...

the good Lord let me born

from that light.

Call me Moses...

and obey me in all things...

so I could lead you back home

to your people.

Early tomorrow morning...

you are leaving for Europe...

on a sailboat I've organized.

Two days from now,

at 2200 hours local time...

we rendezvous at the point exactly...

300 nautical miles

south of Newfoundland.

After that, we continue together...

and land on the westernmost point

of Bretagne, France.

So we will be able to proceed...

without drawing attention

on our home journey.

Now we will synchronize our watches.

Why don't you leave with us, amigo?

I do what I like!

Your task is to obey!

Business is business,

but Moses...

is Moses.

I explain anyway.

I can't return home without presents...

which is why I must stay for a while...

in this Sodom and Gomorrah.

What's the point, gringo?

The first one, the first one. The winner

of each one is owed a prize. Don't be shy.

Who's it gonna be?

Come on, come on, come on.

Who's it gonna be? And the winner,

and the winner, and the winner...

and the winner, and the winner,

and the winner is... 12.

That's right, 12. You are the winner.

12, you take a prize today.

Everybody. Here you go, here you go,

here you go. Play again.

Everybody. Here you go.

Here you go. Here.

Here. Here.

Let's start up another race, folks.

Racing time.

Guaranteed winners each and every time.

Come on, don't be shy.

Give it a try. Have some fun.

It's water, water, water,

water, water racing time.



Why leave now?

We have achieved here so mucho,

Uno final effort and we are at the top.

I don't miss home.

I'm still young and wild.

- What about Moses?

- What about him?

We can get along without him.

Madre mia,

He gets crazy when he's mad.

Even an idea frightens me.

I'll do same as the others do.

It's easier.

You are a cowardo,


I don't want to go.

I want to be American.

I've fallen in love.

I want to stay.

You understand, don't you?



"Police have not yet released

any informations...

regarding the identity of person involved

in the theft of the nose.

Our associates reveal the culprit

may be one Vladimir Kuzmin, alias" -

This way, Moses!

Get the nose!

After the new calf was born,

Grandmother could find no peace.

We got the kolkhoz car for rent

and came here to wait for you...

three weeks ago from now.

Have you got money?

Only these rubles.

They have no value in the Western world.

So we have noticed.

Lucky I inherited from Vladimir

his business talent.

I'll find you some work.

# 'O sole mio #

Dinares, Dinares,

Peso. Peso.


Gringo! This is good.

Hey, man.

Have you seen these criminals?

I shall now retire to solitude...

for meditation and praying.

Mellow Instrumental]

We got out through the window.

Permit me to introduce myself.

Raymond Lazar, record producer.


Leader of the people.

As a great admirer of your orchestra...

I have taken the liberty of arranging...

a one week's engagement for them

in that restaurant.

It's out of question.

We are in a hurry.

And besides -

When do we start?

Let's go! Move it!


We should get rid of him.


The river is strong.

He would be by the sea in the morning.

"You shall not eat any disgusting thing.

Also, you shall not cook

a kid in his mother's milk. "

Hallo, Polizei?

Hallo, Polizei?

Hey! Are you the German police?


We will never see home again.

Mother never

would have let me come along...

because I'm sensitive.

But fool as I am...

I ran away.

"Now get up early...

along with your master's servants...

who have come with you...

and leave in the morning...

as soon as it is light. "

Adios, gringos!

Viva Zapata!

# Lonely moon #

# You are the greatest wonder

of the starry sky #

# Lonely moon #

#When you light up the sky

you really mystify #

# It's you alone

who witness love #

# It's moments full of joy #
