Lieutenant!

Yes, Sir!

What's that?

Attention!

Bayonet drill! Stab forward!

Road clear!

Hurry up!

Go!

Good evening, Lisa!

Good evening.

Lefterova died last night.

- Typhus?

- Yes.

It's an epidemic.

Thank You!

The Stone!

Pass me the sea salt.

This leg is tormenting me.

It's your wound, it's sensitive

to weather changes.

Old age coming, my girl!

You've been drilling before

the recruits again.

Michael...

How dare you enter?

For God's sake, madam, don't!

You should have asked.

I'd have picked you some.

You know there are patrols.

When one is hungry

one doesn't care for patrols.

Come along!

Sit down!

Please!

Thank you.

I have nothing else to offer.

Excuse me!

Why leave the peaches?

Take them!

Thank you, madam!

What's your name?

Ivo... Obrenovitch.

Good bye.

Obrenovitch!

Wait!

Sorry, you can't have from these.

Go see the captain, then.

No, wait.

Obrenovitch.

You know stealing is forbidden...

You make me punish you.

Would you like to work?

No, I refuse! Are you rebeling?

I can't work for my enemy.

You're forgetting that

you are a P.O.W.

An officer, my captain.

All right.

Five days confinement!

Nanev.

Yes, Sir!

Take the peaches to the hospital.

Yes, Sir!

Hey, you!

Hold this!

How could I know it would happen?

Gandev, take this.

Thanks, lieutenant!

I'll come back tomorrow.

"There, far, far away from home

there is my village..."

Obrenovich!

You here, my captain?

Yes, my dear, I'm here again.

What happened?

I hit somebody. Whom?

I can't remember.

But my hand still hurts.

You had one too many?

On the contrary...

Do you bring me something?

My company for five days.

Not bad!

It's boring to play chess alone.

I don't feel like playing.

- Why?

- Just so...

Oh, I see...

It's a woman, isn't it?

- And she let you kiss her?

- No.

Or gave you a smile?

No...

She must be beautiful!

I shouldn't say so.

Then I don't understand.

There!

Kavarnaliev is back from Dobrudga.

Being transferred to the Southern front.

He's brought two boxes of sugar.

I am sure he's smuggled

kerosene from Romania.

Smearing the uniform! Villains!

Starting tomorrow you

sleep in the orchard.

And shoot anyone that shows up.

General Hubenov

has been relieved of his post.

We've retreated at Yarebitchna.

The idiots will let the front break down.

A new requisition decree again.

The government's gone crazy.

What about the prisoners?

What prisoners?

From the camp.

You haven't been to see them, have you?

You know I don't go out.

You needn't.

It's no sight for a decent woman.

They aren't humans, just...

Couldn't we be more human with them?

Don't talk like that.

Our boys are dying at the front,

while you care here about the slaves.

They're hungry and tormented.

They would mutiny if they weren't.

Sorry!

Good afternoon!

I'm here again.

What a moment.

These boots are for you.

I hope they fit you.

Oh, they're fine.

Are you always alone?

No, my husband works downtown.

I know him.

He's the town commandant.

- Who told you?

- The soldiers.

Why do you hide that?

He is very strict.

But you are so kind!

You aren't any safer for that.

I would have come the very next day!
