What happened?

- Quickly doctor, hurry up.


Save her. You promised me, you told me...

Yes, yes. Let me examine her first.

Please, leave us alone.

Please, later...

You can go back to your wife.

- Doctor, will she recover?

Why is she having these seizures?

You're forgetting what have I told

you the last time.

Yes, but you said that those are

just your assumptions.

And what was I suppose to say?

Human destiny is beyond our will and power.

God, what should I do... what should I do?

- Go back to your wife, she needs you.

However, one cannot know. There's

always hope while someone is alive.

Maybe crisis will pass.

Where were you for so long?

I'm here my love, next to you.

Don't worry, it's going to be alright.

Don't misguide me Lucio, it's no use.

Every second is like an eternity

for me now.

What eternity? What are you saying?

There's a whole life in front of us.

Never mind Lucio, I want to sleep...

Listen Jelena, don't you

believe in our love?

It's stronger than death, you know it.

- I want to sleep Lucio.

I'm tired.

I want to sleep...

Let her sleep.

If everything goes well tonight, send

Janko to get this medicine.

Most important thing for her is not

to be troubled.

I can't to anything more as a doctor.

There are forces that are

stronger than people.

Be brave.

There are forces that are stronger

than us. Stronger than us...

Lucio, let me go. Let me go.

Let me go, let me...

Search it.

- Search where?


- Here or there. Take a guess.

This salon is filled with big secrets.


And maybe...



And maybe I'm clairvoyant. That

should be rewarded.

Should I reward that too? Schubert?

You remember. That was my answer

to your letter.

Yes, and instead of words, notes.

And on notes, Schubert's questions.

- Not his, but mine.

Now too?

Yes, now too...

Why? Because I love you more than life.



Jelena my love, don't leave!

Darling, don't give up!

My hand is here, squeeze it hard.

You must live!

You're afraid because I'm leaving you.

But death doesn't have to be separation.

Jelena, my love...

If you really love me, you'll have

me forever.

I don't understand. What do you mean?

- Your love will call me.

Because I love you too Lucio.

I love you greatly.

I'll come if you call me. I'll come

again. I'll be yours forever.

You'll look at me, hug me. But only if

your love is truly strong.

You'll come. Death is not separation.

Not separation.

Promise me that Lucio, promise me

that you'll believe. Promise me.

I promise, I promise.

Here it comes.

It's coming, Lucio...

Wait for me Lucio...

Wait for me...

Wait for me Lucio...

He didn't eat anything today again? - No.

- For who I'm I cooking for 8 days?

Please don't nag all day long,

let me eat something.

Don't touch what doesn't belong to you.

- And cleaning his room instead of you is allowed?

It's not because of me... - I know, it's

because of ghosts. - You fool!

Don't say it out loud. It takes time for

dead pearson to leave the house.

You keep waiting, but let me eat.

Soon, you'll start talking with yourself,

just like the mister.

You keep making jokes. One day

you'll choke on your big tongue.

If you're such a hero, why don't you wind

that clock that belonged to the mistress?

Don't talk nonsense, you know it

stopped by itself. - Really?

It stopped? - It's broken.

- It's broken by itself?

Not here, or there, but when

the mistress died.

What does he want now? I can't even

eat in peace.

Come here.

Where are the books that I read

last night?

How many times do I have to tell you
