They're selling snowdrops now!

You too?


It's a miracle!

The crazy idea of some stupid idiots.

Where can I get the money

for a new one?

What's wrong?

It's all tyranny.

Spring... summer...

My father keeps telling me to get

a summer job in the harvest.

The fields are still bare.

What a miracle!

Don't move!

You're such a good-for-nothing.

Listen, there'll be a solar eclipse.

Should we go see it together?

Dear Bela,

you don't care about snowdrops or eclipses,

your problem is that you hate staying in.

That's why you said: Let's go to the roof!

I could have looked at you in the street.

What's the point?

Turn it down, will you?

Have you eaten?


What's that?

An eclipse like this happens

once in 120 years.

I hope there'll be no clouds.

The sun will drain away

like milk from a pot.

Bela, are you dressed?

Yes, Mum, I am.

See you, Stanka!

It's awful that things are like this.

I should stay in to tell you

what it'd be like, for you to see.

You haven't written to Melenany,

have you?

You should go there.

I don't want to talk about it!

If you could see

I wouldn't have to work so hard.

I'd have time for that, too.

I wouldn't have to worry so much.

Bye, Stanka, bye, children!

What time is it?

Almost seven o'clock.

It's ten to.

Dad was standing by the table

the whole time.

Is it nice weather out?

It's cloudy.

Will the sun be out?

Hardly, Mum.

It's a pity you won't see the eclipse.

That's not so...

What, Mum?

What did you mean, Mummy?

I imagine the eclipse differently.

It's overcast,

there'll be no spectacle today.

Everybody wants to see the show

with the Black Sun.

Wait 120 years,

maybe it won't be cloudy then.

I'll stay just for a little while.

I have to go and Milo wants to come up.

Somebody has to stay with mother.

That's true.

Isn't it groovy?

Groovy. Freaking groovy.

The sun's joking,

jumping into the darkness.

It sure is.

What's it like outside?

It's hard to say. It's like twilight.

Flames must sprout out from the sun

at 700,000 kilometres per second,

out to an immense height, or depth.

People can see it all now,

because the sun has a crown.

It must look so great.

Mum, why isn't Bela coming down?

Is the eclipse all just for her?

Don't worry, hold this.

Put your hand here... like this!

Careful, it's all wires and antennas.

- A lot of them?

- A lot.

- A lot of TV sets?

- Yes, Mummy.

People want to see so much...

Goodness, the air is so fresh up here...

What does the sun look like?

Yes, Mum!

Can you see the sun?

That's the way it is, Mum.

It's dark where the sun used to be.

There's only a little piece of it left,

that's why it's not warm.

No, thanks.

And where's Bela?

- Is the sky clear?

- Yes, it is.

Where are we going?

Lean against the wall,

hide from the wind.

- Is the sky really clear?

- Yes, Mummy.

Is it blue?

It's violet over there,

red over there and dark blue here.

It must be beautiful.

I'm glad you can see it.

And where's Bela?

- I can see the stars.

- You're not lying, are you?

It happens during an eclipse.

You can see the stars.

- Which ones?

Bela, this is awful.

There's Venus and that's Mars over there.

- Is Mars in that direction?

- Yes.

- Blue?

- No, Mars is red.

Is there a blue star there?


Bela, are you here?

Watch together, lie together,

I should love you.

Milo, is there a blue star?

My friends would have a laugh.

Did you hear?

Fayolo is a sleepwalker.

Look, he's walking on the roof with Bela,

waiting for another eclipse.

Well, I have to go.

Is it a night-shift again?

Yes, it's Wednesday.

There's meat and peas in the fridge.

Don't forget to buy bread,

they close at seven.

- Did you hear me?

- Yes, Mum. Thank you.

It wasn't locked.

I saw Bela. What a fox!

Does she eat out of your hand?

Listen, Pete, leave her alone,

she wouldn't fit in your harem.

Who wants a summer job?

Pete's a dope, he wants Bela.

Just to add another notch on his belt.

I collect hands, he collects notches...

We all do our best.

Hands... the strangest human shape.

They can't lie,

not even when making a notch.

Nice songs.

I like songs like these a lot.

Stop talking!

It's all bullshit, tyranny,

I don't believe you.

There's no need to talk. Just listen!

Don't be silly!

Is there a TV set in every house?

We can't come here anymore.

If somebody's antenna breaks...

They'll see us from the other houses.

What do you think?

What's the use in talking,

don't be stupid!

You're stupid! Dope!

You're a dope.

Pete asked about you.

Do you have any idea why?

I didn't mean that, I'm sorry!

Milo left on a school trip,

Father is always home late from work,

nobody comes to visit.

You could come to my room,

Mum wouldn't see you.

Mummy, bread!

I've been to your place,

I went to see your mother before.

I should come to see you

for what? For the radio?

I won't deceive your mother.

I don't do things like that!

I'd be an idiot.

I'd come if your mother could see.

Get dressed and go home!

I didn't think you were such a jerk.

You are!

You've never said anything

that makes sense.

You have a radio for a mouth.

And I turned fifteen last November!

Why didn't you come inside?

I got lost in thought...

Good afternoon.

May I leave my things here?

Open it, since you're here.

Don't release it yet, it's early.

You fixed it very well,
