Requiem for a Killer

Synopsis: Lucrèce is a contract killer in search of a new life. Specialized in the use of poisons and enamored with opera, she accepts a difficult, final hit in a castle in the heart of the Swiss Alps. Posing as a soprano, Lucrèce must perform on stage during the very prestigious Festival of Ermeux and slaughter one of her co-performers, British baritone Alexander Child, who recently bought a distillery in Scotland, and thus became the only obstacle to a strategic pipeline project with considerable financial ramifications. He just won a long legal battle against British Oil, who now has no other choice but to eliminate him. To complicate things, French counter-espionage learns of the hit and sends Rico, a reinstated former agent, to infiltrate the orchestra, unmask and terminate all who wish harm to Alexander Child. Rico has no information on the killer and has a lot of trouble identifying her amid a horde of suspicious characters: an obnoxious conductor, a particularly proud tenor and a strange

"Cara sposa"





- It'll be great, your concert.

You've made progress.

Need not worry.

I do not care.

You've made the violin?

No, but I loved it.

After the concert,

I want to stop.


I'm interested more

the violin too.

I want to do judo,

as my friend Fanny.



Not bad.

You've worked?

- Hours.

That's good, especially since

you have only just ..

... Once a month.

It's a lot.

Giorgio ...

is an enigma ...

... One of my former students,

the most talented at the time ...

... One of the few who would

have a career ...

... But the only

did not want to.

We can finally get started.

Mass is

in three days.

There is not much ..

... Time.

It is his blood?


That is all we have.

The Yugo

tried ...

... To do so,

to no avail.

I bought this sh*t with a fortune.

You have analyzed?


To learn that he is allergic

haired cats.

In other words ...

... We know nothing about him,

otherwise it will be Thursday night ..

... In the VIP area.

I do not know ..

... How you can ...

... Do that.

Secret family life.

"A lemon a day

you will live forever. "

It is my great-grandfather.

[Disturbing music]

Our Lord,

in its immense ...

... Mercy has given us

a sacred gift:
free will.

Every human being,

he is a prince ...

... Or beggar

has the power to use it ..

... At will, to understand

and not to judge ...

... To love and not to condemn.

This is the message of the savior.

Our name will be lost

with time.


- It's good.

It was.

Third bench.

Fourth place on the left.

He sneezes.

they follow the protocol,

Our guys will be the thirteenth ..

... To swallow the Host.

Our life is the transition

a shadow ...???

... An end and his return ...

... For the seal is affixed ...

... And no one returns.

[Disturbing music]

.. They must not;

... Change their brothel.

This is not the type.

What did you put in?

- Something slow, hopeless.

The heart farts ..

... Smoothly

six hours after dosing.

Do not suck your fingers!

Manage yourself.


[Disturbing music]

The body of Christ.

It lacks a f***!

There is one missing in the queue.

The guy ..

... Sleeping.

[Disturbing music]

- Thank you.

The body of Christ.

The body of Christ.


[Disturbing music]


Our nearest platform is 350...

...nautical miles off the coast.

The cost of transporting crude oil by tanker to our refinery in Aberdeen...

...would come to 17 million pounds sterling a year.

The construction of a pipeline running from the platform to the refinery...

...would reduce by a factor of five...

...the costs related to transport, stockade and maintenance.

Geological surveys show that...

...there's only one possible route for this pipeline.

Any deviation from the initial length would put a serious strain on the operation...

...making it unprofitable.

The only remaining obstacle now is a legal one.

The court case we recently lost against Mr Child...

...deprives us of the right to purchase...

...the last remaining parts of land.

Without it, works cannot continue and have been postponed indefinitely.

That's fine.

Thank you.

That'll be all.

And all because of a few barrels of whiskey.

This pipeline... a great opportunity for our shareholders, Reverend.

British Oil cannot afford to let it go...

...especially as things stand.

We have to have that land... all costs.

But how?

All the official channels have failed.

And you've just lost your final appeal against Child.

You have "carte blanche", Reverend...

...whatever it costs...

...providing of course that...

...Alexander Child's death...

...passes for an accident.

You always ...

... Delivered an impeccable job,

I agree.

Your reputation

remains unblemished ...

The best ...

the market.

But if I may,

your rates become aberrant.

Your employers

can afford.

Lucretia is the best

for this job, you know.

I get the sum

you ask.

But at that price,

I recommend a no-fault.


Seymour, it's a lease.

She would not

leave you alone.

I am disappointed, Rico.

There are 10 freelancing ...

...'d Have tried something.

- There is a 0 rods,

you would come alone.

- I find you

a small mine, Rico.

This is not your two years

on the run?

For a former service,

it must have been a joke.

- The night was short ...

... Colonel, that's all.

- I know.

Ten years of field

impeccable record of service ...

... The best CV

of the entire workforce.

Why freaked out?

- I have not farted

the leads.

- Refusal of subordination,

incentive ...

... Disobedience, violence

a higher hit and run.

That's a lot for an agent

elite with nerves of steel.

- What happened ...

... With Seymour

is watching.

We do not even

way of working.

Why I'm here,


You could

fall on me before?

I have not stashed.

Why now?

- I rejoined, Rico.

Erase your slate.

We start from scratch.

But this time, no slippage.

- Are you kidding me? I dream!

- No.

I stop.

It's over.

My daughter will be eight years old.

I want to

tell him what I do.

I'm tired of lying to my mother.

I'm tired of lying

to everyone. I'm getting older.

- Lucretia ...

I need this contract.

It is the custom.

You finish in style

with circles.

I ask you just to shift

your retirement two weeks.

T'empocheras a beautiful package.

Two weeks is nothing.

Let me

one last flower, sh*t.

- Promise one thing.

- I'm listening.

- I want to know everything.

- Know what?

- What my mother ..

... I was never told.

- D 'agreement.

But not before ...

... The end of this contract.

- The RG seek

That's all we have on him:

procedure perfect ...

... A real ghost on hitman

the most expensive market.

It is capable of reaching

any significant ...

... In Europe. Former Ministers ...

... Industrial, officers,

nothing is missing.

We must get rid of.

- I find that?

- The Reverend

Van Kummer.

The biggest bastard

white collar.

It means

Contract killings ...

... In Europe.

It is a kind of agent

for hired killers.

- Alexander ...

... Child.

This is your target.

It is Scottish.

He will sing ...

... With you.

Anna Krups, such as coffee makers,

it's your cover.

You are French-German mother.

Everything is there.

The largest agency in Austria

got you the role.

Did they sold

as a young ...

... Promising contralto.

- It's been so long.

- You could do it. I ask you not

to fly a helicopter.

Singing, was

your first job, after all.

If you ever not feel

at, say ...

... You reserve

for the representation.

If you Butes Child

before the first ...

... You will not have to open your mouth.

- Alexander Child is ...

... 37-year-old Scot,

opera singer.

Van Kummer received an envelope

daunting to kill him.

Every indication

that our killer is in the game.

An unexpected opportunity ..

... To get rid of.

The contract specifies that Alexander

Child must be eliminated ...

... In the production

the "Messiah" by Handel ...
