Synopsis: Berlin. Forty years from today. A roiling city of immigrants, where East crashes against West in a science-fiction Casablanca. Leo Beiler (Skarsgard), a mute bartender has one reason and one reason only for living here, and she's disappeared. But when Leo's search takes him deeper into the city's underbelly, an odd pair of American surgeons (led by Rudd) seem to be the only recurring clue, and Leo can't tell if they can help, or who he should fear most.

There is

major internal tissue damage.

I'm not promising we can repair it,

but if we don't try,

Leo will never be able to talk.

Your son deserves that we do our best.

I understand you have your own beliefs,

but sometimes the good Lord does

his best work through human hands.


Come, my child, help me.

He'll be fine.

We just need to get him home.

God will heal Leo. are not just

a customer, you are part of the machine.

If you see acts of graffiti

being committed,

please notify the authorities.

All American military personnel

must have valid passes.



I'm so sorry.

I'm late.

So sorry.

Yeah, let's go.

Leo, I got something for you.

Well, you have to wait.

Come on. I'm starving.

Please watch your heads.

FlyMeal coming through.

You really don't mind eating this again?

It's comfort food, you know?


Don't get me wrong.

I really love your very...

peculiar way of living, but...

it would make things

so much easier.

It's the oldest, simplest phone

I could find.


So that's where you...

Wait, let me show it to you.

So... Okay,

that's how you turn it on, and...


Leo, stop hiding.

You are so beautiful.

Da stargo tora.

The black of my eyes.

Da stargo tora.

Means "the thing

that makes me feel beautiful."

- Hi!

- Hi.

One more?

That's a real sexy hood ornament

you got dancing up there tonight.


I need two more of those.

That's my favorite so far.

But it's too easy.

Make me a sea horse.

- Here you are, mate. Here she comes.

- Come on, love.

- Thank you.

- Thank you very much.


Here, love.

My man's got a question for you.

I'm wondering

if the top matches the bottom.

Isn't he charming?

- Just take that.

- Hey, Naadirah.

- Hey, pretty girl.

- Naadirah, let's go take a break.

Come on.

- She loves it.

- Loves it.

So, did Nicky talk to you?

- Yeah.

- How much money you have saved so far?

- Not enough.

- And why isn't he helping?

He doesn't know.

Luba, get off the car.

What? He doesn't know?

Wow! Mute and dumb. What a catch.

You haven't brought him over.

I hope it's got nothing to do with me.


You can put a sock on the door handle

so I know not to come in.

Or wait till I'm asleep.

I know he'll be quiet.


Why the hell can't he talk anyway?

It's complicated.

It's his mother's fault.

He needs surgery.

It's against her beliefs.

If my mom tried to stop me talking,

I would f*** her up.

And she's in a wheelchair.

He doesn't need words.

He's kind.

Why wouldn't I love him?



I didn't do that?

- Aw, Luba...

- No.

- I'm gonna go back inside.

- Wait, wait. So who did Nicky suggest?


It doesn't matter how close

you rub up against Grace, Luba,

you will never be as beautiful as her.

- Get off my car.

- Okay.

- Back to work. Let's go.

- Fine.

Blue is my favorite lollipop color.

I just lick 'em like...

You know what I think?

Maybe I didn't offer enough money.

- Get your hands off me.

- This goes easier if you don't fight...

- Get your hands off me.

- Who do you think... Hey!

What you doing? Hey! Rob! Rob!

- What you doing? Hey!

- It's all right. Leave him be.

- I didn't know she was your woman.

- Leave him be.

Get your hands off him!

- You all right?

- Yeah, he took my money, man.

- F***ing thief.

- Never put your hands on me.

- This is expensive sh*t.

- It's not worth it.

Leo. Leo.


I can't lose this job.

Yeah, listen to your b*tch, Leo.

Yeah, go on.

Keep walking, lanky prick.

Yeah, get out, man.


Hey, don't push me!


Please take your seats
