The madness...

is a disease that spreads through the mind.

Generating and disturbed twisted thoughts...

within the human brain.

Pushing us to commit horrendous acts...

that transcend the usual

imagining sphere.

Moves from one person to another...

without distinction of sex, race, age or creed.

Giving rise to unimaginable results...

we are unable to accept nor understand.

We can only attempt,

perhaps in some way...

contain these insane poor...

helpless wandering through the narrow limits...

of their inner worlds.

My name is Dr. Henry Stenson.

Welcome to the madhouse.

Give it.

Patient 49.

came recently with a very tragic story...

after losing everything that has ever loved.

Art is a very subjective means.

We see what we want to see...

in a painting, a book,

a sculpture or a figure.

Come here, I cannot

fix your hair.


Tilt your head slightly to the left.

That is.

Float down the stairs.

Fleet only.

Okay, let's see.

Edgar, you're the observer.

So you're at the entrance.

Hence you watch...

Roderick, what do you do?

Why are you always

arming problems?

Try to pay attention to the world.

What happened here?

Take your paint...

your beautiful painting.

You're a wonderful artist,

Roderick, you must believe in yourself.

So, look at Madeline.

Now listen.

This is very important for all night...

you want the best look.

Have the electrified hair,

dear. That's better.


- Gus?

- Yeah, not me...

Sam is waiting.


It's time.

I just need...

few minutes.

Why always me doing this,

old friend?

Fast Finish, come on.

Is a great day for everyone.

- Gustav?

- What?

Yes, you need to see a doctor

about these headaches.

Very grateful.

- Sam, you're ready.

- Ah, let's see...

... Nicky

opens doors.

Over here, ladies and gentlemen.

I would like to take this opportunity...

to thank Gustav Spiller

for this amazing exhibition.

Gustav Spiller, ladies and gentlemen, Gustav Spiller


Gustav, Gustav, come here.

In the last thirty years...

've had the pleasure of working

with many of the artists...

most renowned US.

But none are as unique as our present here


Bravo, Gustav!

Well, Matthew,

this great night.

I just talked to our friends in New York


and are very excited with this contract.

- Great.

- Nearly 6 million.

Will be good for all of us.

You said six million?

Here is my hero.

Isabelle... Thanks.

- Come on, waiting journalists.

- No, no...

- Yes, they are just a couple.

- OK.

Mr. Spiller...

Is it true you have an offer

to move his work to New York?

- Yes

- Does that mean you accept the offer?

- We are pleased to announce...

- No, I have no plans, I...

need my peers.

I have no plans to sell.

Not at this time,

and have no plans for the future.

Here I have everything I need.

I was right.

Is not that true?

Did you hear how everyone

said you were perfect?

Do not look well.

'm Fine, I'm fine.

'll Be back soon.


No, wait a minute.


You were not there.

You, friend...

were there.



'm exhausted, so I'll...

going to say goodnight

and see you in the morning.

Oh, my God...

can not be.

Is impossible.

I can not believe it.

Gustav, answer the phone.

's Me, Sam. Where are you?

We have to find a solution.

We need to give an answer.

And above all, hope you're well.

We've been through this before.

Please call me.

Serving the phone.

Sam is worried about you.

- I know what you Sam.

- It's a good deal.

- Is a tremendous business, the...

- I know, is a unique opportunity!

You decree what you decide,

whatever you do...
