Mr. Gary.

That man looks really ill. Who is he?

Wasn't he here yesterday as well?

He's been here all week.

He's an Italian engineer.

That weird car outside, is that his?

Yes, it is.

He desperately wants you

to read a file he's brought.

I didn't want to bother you with it.

Did you tell him we deal with disputes

between sovereign states?

He says he's a head of state,

and that he won't leave

until I give you the file.

He's a bit crazy but also very determined.

This is what we're going to do.

Hand me the file,

and make it look like a big deal.

Here's the file I told you about.

Thank you.

I'll read it very carefully.

Very well. Thank you, sir. Goodbye.

Where is he?


-The mad man with pneumonia.

-I managed to get rid of him.


Bring him to my office.

I need to talk to him.

Come on, quick!

Mr. Rosa, I have to ask you

if you know what day it is

and where you are.

November 10th, 1968,

Strasbourg, Council of Europe.

And what can the Council of Europe

do for you, Mr. Rosa?

Save my island.

Did you buy an island?

No, I made it.

He created an island.

How many days did it take you

to create this island?

Please, don't say six,

that would be an incredible coincidence.

No, it wasn't six days.

It took me several months.

So you own an island

that you have created.

No, I didn't say that.

I'm an engineer. I simply built it, then…

we created the world on the island…

I should just leave.

This man's in a confused state.

He needs help but clearly not from us.

I need help from the European Council.

That's why I'm here.

Keep calm, Mr. Rosa.

I can't keep calm.

They're going to destroy everything.

Is this the island that you built?

Yes, like I said, I'm an engineer.

Doctor, my ass! Piss off!


Doctor, my ass! Piss off!

Doctor, my ass! Piss off!

If I may, we're already doctors.

We've passed our exam,

so now we're engineers not--

Engineer, my ass! Piss off!

What the hell are you doing?


What forfeit?

I was just talking… It's not fair!

Guys, he's right.

If you challenge a professional--

-You stole my glass!


What? I was talking

about the engineer thing.

They insist.

I'd say a fair forfeit could be…

to have him…

make a complete ass of himself!

-But these aren't the rules…

-Ass of himself!

-I didn't lose!

-Ass of himself!

So, the first girl that walks in,

he must chat her up,

and when she least expects it,

he kisses her on her lips!



How's it going?

It's good to see you.

I'll be right there.



Well, it's…

It's just that today

we took our state exam.

I'm now officially an engineer.



Guys, we can't do the kiss thing.

We can't do that…

They want me to kiss you,

because I lost a drinking game.


-I didn't even lose.

They're just insisting because…

Guys. We can't do that.

We just can't do that.

Guys, it's not gonna happen.

Right, there's no point

that they keep saying…

We just can't do that, you know…

You look good.

You look very good.



Fancy a drink?

Well, anyway…

It's a funny coincidence

running into each other here--

Not really. Bologna isn't a big town.

Yeah, sure.

Last time we saw each other,

you were seeing that guy, that--


-Carlo, that's right.


He's not here, is he?

We've been having problems lately.

I'm sorry to hear that.

No, you're not.

Come on, it was clear that you were…

Well, that your relationship was like…

just a temporary one.

How long have you been together?

A few months?
