Run, brother!

- Brother!! Let's go, Tadas!

Tadas, run!

- Adam, let's go back...- No, wait...

Come on, it's just one rabbit.

My dear friend, today they're...

...they're after a rabbit,

but tomorrow they'll be after you.

Adam, for the love of God,

they're just children...

My Janek is a child.

Your Kristina is a child, but these?.

A snakes' nest.

When you find a snakes' nest,

you kill them all, down to the last...

- Adam...-To the last...

Don't talk nonsense.

Brother, hold on, brother!

Hold on!

Hold on, brother!


Hold on!

Tadas, run!

Brother, hold on!

Brother! Hold on!


Dreamt about your brother again?.

-There's ghosts,Tadas...

-There aren't any ghosts, Vince...

There are, the ghost of Mrs.

Rasumowski herself is there.

- Stop it, that's nonsense.

- It's not nonsense.

Jonas also saw it,

and everyone else knows too.

And did you know...

...the old lady committed suicide...

...when Adam Rasumowski

was killed hunting and...

- Shut up, Vince...- Waitwait, listen...

She set herself on fire...

That's the truth.


..and the others just barely

saved themselves.


We can't keep hiding

like rabbits in a burrow.

We'll dig up Rasumowski's money...

...go see master Gruinius,

and buy our freedom.

We'll buy horses, I'll get a sword...

...and we'll see the sea, Vince.

- What?. The sea?.-That's right, Vince.

You promise?.


...I never make promises.

I dream.

I want and I dream.

And sometimes dreams come true. Right?.

Let's go,Vince.

But how do you knowwhere the money is?.

The one-legged organist told me.

But he can't even talk.

He got his tongue cut out

for bad-mouthing Russian vodka.

Hewrote it down for me.

I'm telling you - there are ghosts...






What is it?.


It's that old man of yours again.

I have to go.

No no no no no...

Wait, wait...

...forget about that old, old cock of yours.

- He's still my husband.- Big deal.

I've missed you so much...

In the evening, when the guests leave.

You know where. Right?.


And how many times have you promised

me something?. Huh?.



What are you doing here?.


I was looking for the cook.

Here?. You were looking here?.



...I wanted to ask her to be generous with

the juniper berries for the beef.

Forthe beef...


Forthe beef!

The juniper berries!


There's no beef here.


There's no...beef, thank you very much.

There's no...beef, just a moose,

with these big antlers.


DoesTadas even know how to swim?.

Never goes in the water.

Hasn't snce he was little.

So why did he jump in?.

To rescue you.

Great, a hero...

Is he breathing?.

You immature...!

(In Russian)Your Highness,

Lieutenant Rasumowski.

Yes. Leave him with me.

- But...- Get out of here, you swine.


Janek Rasumowski.

Precisely, Your Highness.

So, you've made a lot of enemies,


Your Highness,

my enemies are my business...

A smart ass, what a smart ass.

I love them.

What, are you all like that

over there in the Northwest?.

You're from Lithuania,

aren't you?.

I'm a Pole, Your Highness.

I haven't been there since

my dear parents died 15 years ago.

Well, we'll take care ofthat.

Of course, some people would

like to have you shot.

But I have different plans,


But... I don't quite understand

what you're saying, Your Highness...

Well, as you probably know...

...our Emperor Alexander -

praise his sacred name, good Lord...

...has decided to give

the land to the serfs...

... over in that Northwest of yours.

To the savage Lithuanians themselves.

Take as many people as you need

to suppress the rebellion.

ButYour Highness, as far as I know,

there is no rebellion there.

There will be.

And you will be the one

who takes care of it.

Only everything has to lookgenuine.


But soon, my dear, such things will begin there...

...that there won't even

be time to plough the land.

None at all.

Thankyou, Ferdinandas.

A good book.

Please get out.


Get out!

Bernardas, why all the emotion?.

And by theway,

what does the word "argent" mean?.

Please leave.

Bernardas, the payments are late.

I told you, you'll get them.

La argent, la argent...

...Ia argent, la argent...

I need them now, right away.

You'll ruin my estate.

You, YourWorship, are the ruin...

...ofyour own estate.

You have been for a long time.

And I am just the obedient

servant offate.

You... bastard.


...you owe your entire

life to this bastard.

You know where you can shove those debts?.


Sir, someone to see you.

Junior Officer of the Imperial Army.

Lieutenant Rasumowskii.

Janek, uncle.

Adam's son.



Thankyou, Edmundas, you may go.

Yes, but...


At your service, gentlemen.

A servant of fate, as they say.

Let me helpyou...

Thankyou very much.

Welcome back.

- It's been so many years.- Uncle.

You've grown up...

I have news. Important news. From Petersburg.



- What are you doing?. -You'll see.

Coal, give me the coal.

- What do you need coal for?.

-You'll see, relax...

Give me your heart!

Let's go... Iet's go.

Where are we going?.

Sit up straight.

Admit it, the forest is alive

with spirits at night.
