Synopsis: The forty-something Leon who used to be with special forces is now an alcoholic after his wife left him. He gets a call to meet a mobster who's looking for a bodyguard. When he arrives the mobster refuses to hire him because he can tell he's an alcoholic, but when he saves his life a few minutes later, the gangster is very appreciative and gives Leon the job. He's not hired to protect the gangster, but the gangster's 16-year-old daughter, Sara. At first she is annoyed by him and is rebellious and won't cooperate with him, but when he saves her life and takes a bullet for her, she falls in love with him. She makes advances towards him telling him she wants him to be her man. Naturally he refuses her at first because he knows her father would kill him. Eventually he gives in and they become secret lovers. They're in love but how long can they continue their relationship before her father finds out? And what will he do when he finds out?
110 min

Take them away.

The special UN emissary...

has been just evacuated after

his car was attacked...

by three unidentified gunmen.

What happened?

I can only say that

our soldiers...

- Any casualties?

- Why the shooting?

Was it an assassination?

One of them protected me

with his body.

- Is he wounded?

- Did he survive?

Thanks to him, I'm here now.

- Are you all right?

Will you make a statement?

Please do not film the unloading.

We have a few wounded but their

lives aren't in danger.

Our soldiers showed

extraordinary heroism.

If they're only wounded

why are they covered?

They are special forces.

Their faces are never shown.

I was standing there, five

meters away from them.

The guy who took this picture

suddenly fell down...

and a Jeep with a machine gun

came around the corner...

so we started to shoot.

Later we learned that none of the

refugees had been killed...

and that woman gave me this pot

out of gratitude.

Oh, it's only a rib.

- Broken?

- It doesn't hurt.

Yes? I remember.

No, nothing like that.

Of course I do.

I shave everyday.

I'm telling you that you...

can't do this legally.

I don't want it to be legal.

I just want it to look that way.

Hey buddy, where to?

Where do you think you're going?

He has an appointment.

What's that on your head?

- My hairdresser was drunk.

- John, show him out.

You won't find anybody

better for this job!

Four years in the special forces!

He protected people

with his own body!

He's had some problems,

but everybody

drinks from time to time.

He drinks everyday,

you can see it in his eyes.

How could you bring

me such trash?

It shows a lack of respect.

Can I have a drink before I go?

Give him a beer and throw him out.

- I don't have a gun.

- Good, you'd only hurt yourself.


Stop shooting, for God's sake.

What an idiot!

I heard you.

We had a deal, didn't we?

To guard me means to show up before

they kill me, right?

The car wouldn't start.

You should have told me.

I would've bought you a new one.

See if he's still alive.

I think he's dead.

The son of a b*tch is asleep.

I'm taking him home.

He'll puke all over the car, boss.

Where am I going to find

a lawyer as good as you?

You'd like one like that,

wouldn't you?

What is she doing here?

She wanted to go dancing.

Here, in this whore-house?

This place is good for thugs,

thieves, and corrupt cops.

You were supposed to guard her,

not take her out dancing.

I figured if she wanted to dance,

better to do it near you.

Starting tomorrow you're

the new gardener.

Get out of here.

What stinks?

You puked in the car and

I had to clean it up.

Leave us alone.

Can you tell me why you debased

yourself like this?

I had some family problems.

I can help you out.

I can call the doctor to give you

an Antabuse implant...

or I can put half a liter

of vodka into your IV.

Put in a liter.

Christ, Doctor, at least

give me an anesthetic!

Go and call Sara.

If I tell her, she won't listen.

Why don't you go, darling?

Go call the boys for dinner.

This is the man who'll be

driving you to school.

Couldn't I drive someone else?

I'll never shoot a cop

in uniform.


What about undercover cops?

Why is he alone?

Because I'm good, pal.

Boss, talk to him.

Buy him something big,

better make it a shotgun.

- What the hell for?

- Because it's big.

Give me a break Leon.

We're both in this for the money.

- But I'm not staff.

- That's why I earn more.

I want two legal guns,

a Colt and a Beretta.

The doctors won't let me drink

vodka or eat fatty food...

but they allow me to drink wine.
