"Subconscious sexual urges are fast bonded to the sense of fright..."

S. Freud


Vita, hurry up. You'll be late.

Good morning, Father.

You came?

Does it surprise you?

When you said you'd think about it, I supposed it to be a polite refusal.

I long since don't do commisioned works.

It's odd that you remembered exactly me.

You could've easily got someone from ???

All of this is uncongenial to me.

I remember your early works.

Such stylistics seem appropriate here.

Your work will bring joy and solace to homeless people

who ?????. And this plot is appropriate here.

Don't explain why exactly do you need Annunciation. I don't care.

Pardon me, Father.

Anyway, your proposal is something.

You see I'm here.

But I don't do anything if I'm not interested.

I am taking your commission, Father.

By the way, not so bad a flowers grow in your gardens.

I think that's what I need.

Her name is Vita.

If I understand correctly, you want to paint her.

Father, I really need a sitter.

I hope she will agree to sit for me.

Vita would hardly refuse to me. Moreover, matter is good.

So you'll send her to me?

I don't see any other model.

Well...I have no objections.

Though, I don't really see Vita in this character...

You are no painter! You will see what I have noticed in her.

Well, what are we doing in evening?

I don't know yet. There are much homework today.

Let's reserve a table at the bar. They play good country music

there. We could dance without getting deaf.


You know, wait a little for me. I will be free in a moment. Right?

Let me introduce you. Albert, the painter.

Master wants to paint you.


Yes. He needs you for Virgin Mary.

I hope your work will adorn sanctuary on Ascension Day.

I am expecting you in my studio. Tomorrow.

Vita, I've got books for you. You can study in my room.

Can I come in?

I am probably too early.

You're right on time. Your name is Vita?


Have a look around. Model has to feel herself at home during work,

not peek about.

Let girl pour us wine.

Look by the mirror. Glasses are also there.

Have some yourself.

Don't listen to her, Vita.

Virgin Mary must be pure, not lecherous.

Here you go.

Step away! That's dangerous!

Better have a look at my works. And remeber -

here you can do only what I allow you to do.

What is that?

What has frightened you?

They are devouring each other.

Be careful. He was bittnen by she-spider.

Bite of she-spider is no more dangerous than that of a woman.

Albert, we're leaving.

Well? What do you say?

That's how I worked in youth.


But I like them a lot.

Sit down! And now listen...

From now on you're at my mercy. Everybody, who comes in here,

belongs to me.

You will be listening only to me.

From now on you are bound the be with me forever.

Haven't I scared you?

That's nice.

Keep in mind, girlie...

you don't need to be afraid of anything here.

But, bloody hell, what is this hairdo?

Can Virgin Mary really have such hairdo?


You will be like I see you.

But [you must] know

our looks are deceptive.

They hide the soul.

And soul is great mystery.

We strive to unravel soul of somebody else

and protect our own...from external evil.

There are only you and me...

this space...and what's in store for us...

Back! In your place!

I'm scared.

I already told you: don't be afraid of anything.

Don't be afraid of me.

Let me go!

Don't be scared...

Let me go!

No! Let me go!

Our looks are deceptive.

They hide the soul.

And soul is great mystery.

Great mystery...

I'm speaking.

You must return. You belong to me until the work is finished.
