I couldn't find his, but come in anyway.

What is that?

Doctor Kelemen said

he needs my results today.

He said that? Then come in.

Unfortunately you have to stand.

Roll up your sleeve and I'll put

a tourniquet around your forearm.

That's yours.

- Thank you.

Stop it. I'm healthy.

Just wanted to see how they do it here.

What do you expect? Like this.

Aditu, take care of the old man.

Mr. Berger's results have disappeared.

- Berger? You mean Fischer.

Funny.

Why did I say Berger?

- A Berger's stuck in your head.

Sorry.

- No problem.

At least we have it now.

You should check if it's the right one.

Brindusa Herghelegiu. That's me.

- Good.

Let's go and register.

- When is the wedding?

Saturday.

- This Saturday?

What can I say to that? Good luck!

- Thanks.

The wedding will be

at the registry office.

Yeah, so...

No, no. What are you doing?

Thank you very much.

Good luck.

How should I act around your relatives?

- Don't start that again.

It'll be fine.

How about this:

My family stays at my apartment

and I stay with you.

My dad would like that.

Why doesn't your mom like me?

Brindusa,

she's only seen one picture of you

and she didn't say she didn't like you.

She just asked

why you wear so much make-up.

I don't understand.

You don't have to.

Come on.

I'll be back in 30 minutes.

Exactly.

- I have to be at the printer's at 12.

Did you tell lorga we're getting married?

- No, I don't want to.

It's up to you.

Stefan said you're expecting

another German technician?

Did your boyfriend send you?

Do you know how much

the offset machine cost me?

That's not the problem.

- How much?

It cost me 800,000 euros.

You should talk to each other.

You can't bring someone

to look over Stefan's shoulder.

Brindusa,

do you know what you're saying?

Why do you accuse me

of having something against Stefan?

It's silly of us to argue

and for you to defend the German.

We're not arguing.

I have nothing against him.

Tell him that or let it be.

I'd like him to know

I don't owe him anything.

It's purely professional.

Cornel showed me the proofs.

Stefan may be German,

but he doesn't know what he's doing.

And...

I want the Frenchmen to be satisfied.

If His Highness Stefan is unhappy,

he should come and see me himself,

not send you.

Real men don't do that.

- He didn't send me.

You're acting on your own initiative?

- Exactly.

Sure you are.

- My word of honor.

I want to tell you something:

In two months, Stefan will have finished

here and will be back in Germany.

You'll be sitting in my office

and crying your eyes out.

If this is his fault,

I'll put him on a plane within a week.

Air cargo and away with him!

Oh, yeah?

And who will install the machine?

We'll get another German.

An older, more impotent one.

Good.

I see you're upset.

We'll talk later when you've calmed down.

The phone's ringing, Ms. Secretary.

Aren't you going to pick it up?

Yes?

The "real" expert

from Germany has arrived.

Tell him to come in.

You stay here to translate.

Welcome.

What impression should he have?

We have a diversified country:

the ocean, the mountains,

lakes, plateaus,

the Western Carpathians, the forests

where there are plenty of pests.

But the true pests are in Parliament,

as you know.

The Western Carpathians.

We printed it on the old machine.

Much better quality

than what our German expert

is now producing.

My French contractors mentioned you had

problems installing the new machines.

Please translate everything I say.

What do you mean?

Nothing.

And don't slobber, he's wearing a ring.

You're stabbing Stefan in the back.

I'd love to take YOU from behind.

- And you think I want that too?

Is there a problem?

- What?

Maybe you can speak slower

so that we can communicate better.

Yes, sorry.

Printing machines

usually work perfectly for many years

after being installed.

It is therefore very unlikely

for the problems you described

to occur before the installation.

After all, it's German engineering.

Do you think we should speak with

the German technician, Mr. Fischer?

I suggested we speak with Stefan.

You're just here to translate.

Yes, maybe we should visit him

and have a look at the machine.

Good idea.

He's not wearing a ring.

I can't believe you checked that.

All this is new. The whole area

used to be a garbage dump.

We utilize everything.

Here's where we shred our paper

according to European standards.

What did he say?

- Sorry, I wasn't listening.

That's the new offset machine.

And that's Ms. Secretary's boyfriend.

I'm Stefan Fischer, may I help you?

- Peter Gross, technical consultant.

I'm the one everyone's afraid of.

- Yes.

This is Cornel Codreanu.

He's worked here for 35 years.

The young lady told me

you have some problems.

The young lady's Brindusa Herghelegiu

and we're getting married on Saturday.

What's he saying?

Congratulations. Well done.

- Thank you.

The German-Romanian friendship

is bearing fruit.

So, like I told you...

Those are the...

...and this here.

They should look the same,

but these ones have too much blue.

The same films, the same printing plate,

but the results differ.

What's wrong? You're not translating.

He said...

- I understood. What ink do you use,

American or European SWOP?

- That's the problem:

American SWOP. I told him 100 times.

Don't give me all that

European and American sh*t.
