Hold the door.

Give me a hand.

What if he comes in ?

Don't worry, he can't.

What if he finds a way in ?

l bet we can find some good food

in this house.

You think so ? Do you think

they have chocolate, too ?

Maybe. Wanna find out ?

Come on !

Look what l found.

- Are they chocolate ?

- Yes, chocolate, too.

No thanks, l'm full.

l wonder who these guys are.

l don't know. Probably

the family who used to live here.

Where are they now ?

l don't have a clue,

but the house is ours tonight.

- Did you like the biscuits ?

- Yes. What book is this ?

lt's not a book,

it's a diary.

What's a diary ?

lt's a notebook where you write

everything that happens every day.

- Why ?

- So that... you won't forget.

Whose is it ?

l think it belonged to the boy

who used to live here.

Do you think he would mind

if we read a little from it ?

l don't know...

Do you want us to ?

Let's see...

l found something.

''Friday, May 23rd.

Today started like any Friday.''

''l was in school,

during the English class.''

- Are you in the story ?

- Yes, because l'm reading it.

l want to be in it, too.

- Who do you want to be ?

- l want to be a princess.

Okay, you'll be the princess

and l'll be the storyteller.

Now, do you want to hear

how the adventure starts ?

Ahmed started swearing,

like he always does.

l renounce Satan and all his works.

- Who are these guys ?

- The bad guys. The mobsters.

''Dou you renounce Satan ?''

''Yes, l renounce Satan.''

The fat guy is one of the bad guys ?

l like him.

Wait for the rest of the story.

What gun would James Bond wear

with this suit ? Glock or Beretta ?

l don't know about that

James Bond of yours,

but l know what Margelatu

would choose.

- Again with that Margelatu ?

- Yes, Margelatu.

My dear ! Hurry,

your Mom is waiting for you.

- Okay.

- Quick.


Granny's dearest, bye !

Bless us, Father !

Blessed is the Kingdom of the Father,

and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost,

now and forever,

until the end of time.


We baptize God's servant Radu,

in the name of the Father, amen,

and of the Son, amen,

and of the Holy Ghost, amen.

Now and forever,

until the end of time.

Police ! Nobody move !

Arrest him !

Police ! Nobody move !

Take those hoods off !

You're in the church !

Don't move, ma'am !

- We're on duty, granny.

- What duty ?!

- Do you copy ?

- Yes.

Everybody out !

Arrest him !

According to Article 328 of the

Penal Code, you are under arrest.

Hands up !

Take him away !

Nobody moves !

Tell him l won't say a word,

no matter what happens.

He is under arrest.

Give me the baby.

Why did you take off your hoods ?

You compromised your cover.

We're in a church.

So what ? You'll be doing

night rounds from tomorrow,

dealing with hobos and drunkards.

Yes. What ? Understood.

Why did you send the SWAT guys

to arrest Prodan ?

He's just a petty accountant.

We didn't want to risk any surprises

when we arrest Spanu.

We suspect he's working for him.

You've arrested him on a suspicion ?

lt's more than just a suspicion.

Look !

Manase is Prodan's cousin,

Spanu's right hand.

Prove me you have a case,

or you're finished.

We've asked the Financial Guard

to comb through Prodan's companies

and they found something.

Those guys always find something.

We've got clear evidence

of tax fraud.

And ?

We'll make Prodan give us Spanu,

we take Spanu and let Prodan go.

You want to lock up Spanu

for tax fraud ?

lt worked with Capone.

lt's just an example.

Did you talk to his wife ?

He didn't deny.

Come on, she's leaving.

Let's go !

But be careful,
