Not that way!

No... No...!

Out, Boris, out!

Out, Boris, out!

To hell with you,

you wretch!

Get out of here!

You won't get any supper...

I apologize, Mother,

I promise I'll be good...

Let's shake on it then...

Come on...

- Now I've got you.

- Ugh!

Don't run away! Stop! Do

you want bread and honey?

Drive her off!

Drive her off!

The cow?

Drive her off!

No, Boris, no...

No, Boris, no...

Out, Boris, out...

Now I've got you,


I'll break your bones. I'll

eat you... eat you up...

I've wanted you

for a long time!

Do you know who I am?

I'm Uncle Rudi.

You're Uncle Pista.

I'm Uncle Rudi. I've just

come back from the front!

Don't you like Uncle Rudi?

You, nobody's child...

You're Uncle Pista!


I want some too.

Ease up.

I want some too.

What's going on here?

Are you crazy?

To hell with you all...

Go to sleep. What are you

doing? The apple's gone.

Leave Csore alone.

Don't kick her.

Her behind hurts.

It was Pista...

Rudi, my foot...

Pista Kadarcs did it,

the pig.

Damn it!

Push me higher! It's my

turn. Push me higher!

Leave me alone. Get off,

now you push me.

Get off, it's my turn now.

You mustn't go in,

the floor's wet.

(next 2 minutes untranslated)

You street urchin...

You would like some,

wouldn't you?

Want some?

This is for you, eat up.

Csore! Csore!

- What's that on your head?

- A hat.

- Give it to me.

- No, you'll spoil it.

Let me just try it on.

Just for a little while...

Just for a little bit...

Just for a little while...

Give it back!

Give it back!

If you give me your shirt,

you can keep it.

- For keeps?

- Yes.

- Is the shirt for keeps too?

- Yes.


Boris, Boris...



Will you ever stop?

Catch me if you can!

No, Boris, no... Boris...

Csore, damn you,

you little wretch!

I feed you, and you repay

me by taking

someone else's shirt.

What's that on your head?

Stand up straight.

And you, why are you such

a numskull?

Get out of here, damn you.

To hell with you.


Damn it, I'm not going to

run around after you. Here.

- I don't want it.

- What did you say?

Take it at once.

Where did you get that melon?

Answer me, or I'll split

you in two.

In the field.

How did you dare pick it,

you rascal?

Have you learnt

stealing from me?

Listen to this, Dudas.

She's a thief.

A thief.

This rascal's a thief.

Go and lock the door.

She mustn't get away.

Come here.

You won't steal again.

Hold her hand.

What do you want to do

to her?

Hold her hand.

I'll teach this pig.

She won't steal again even

if it sticks to her hand.

Oh, my dear child...

You mustn't steal...

You see, I told Father

because I'm too weak

to teach you...

But now he really

taught you...

Come here.

Come here. I'll put some

sour cream on your hand,

and dress it with

this cloth.

Look, my hand got burnt


because I pulled your

fingers away a little...

Only the tips of your

fingers got burnt...

But look at my hand...

It smoked,

it was so badly burnt...

You know, child, stealing

is the greatest sin...

Don't ever take anything

that isn't yours.

Here, everything belongs

to someone else...

You see, Rozsika or Zsofia

can take what they want.

Because they're at home...

But you mustn't take


You mustn't take anything

at all.

Because you have nothing.

Your skin... that's yours.

But you don't have

anything else here.

I've got a shirt.

What do you have,

you scum?

I've got a shirt.

You worm! Is it worth

caring for this wretch?
