(DRAMATIC MUSIC)

(MEN SHOUTING)

(KNOCKS ON DOOR)

- Hello.

- Please sir, please.

The Gestapo are chasing me,

may I take shelter in your home?

(MEN SHOUTING)

Please sir, they're going to kill me.

Okay, okay.

Thank you, thank you.

(PANTING)

Wait.

What's going on?

Who is that?

(KNOCK ON DOOR)

Just follow my lead.

It will be all right.

(BANGING ON DOOR)

I'm Senior Stormleader Gebhardt.

This is Under Stormleader Fegelein.

What is this about?

We are pursuing an enemy of the state.

We have reason to believe he

may have entered your home.

I'm afraid not.

We haven't had any visitors tonight.

What's your name?

I'm Christophe Muller.

This is my wife, Brigitte.

Is it just the two of you

in the house this evening?

My daughter Esther is asleep upstairs.

We would like to conduct

a search of the premises.

Are there any objections?

No.

Sir, may I go upstairs

and bring my daughter down to join us?

She will be frightened

if you enter her room without warning.

(SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING)

You have two minutes.

(FOOTSTEPS MOVING AWAY)

May I ask you what crime the man

you are looking for has committed?

The man is considered a

threat to national security.

Are you a supporter of the Fuehrer?

Of course.

Then you should want to

see the fugitive captured

as soon as possible.

I do.

(FOOTSTEPS APPROACHING)

It's okay, sweetheart.

These men need to look at the house

to be sure of our safety.

Now, before we begin,

is there anything you wish to tell us

that would make conducting

of a search unnecessary?

CHRISTOPHE:
I don't have any information.

We live a very quiet life here.

We're not used to this.

If you cooperate you have nothing to fear.

Fegelein, you search upstairs.

Yes, sir.

Nothing.

It's clear.

We thank you for your cooperation.

Hold on.

GEBHARDT:
What?

FEGELEIN:
Did you check in there?

No.

(SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC PLAYING)

FEGELEIN:
Nothing of interest.

Okay, let's go.

Good night.

Good night, officers.

Hello?

Have they gone?

Yeah, you're safe.

(PANTING)

I am sorry we can't offer

you something more hospitable.

But it's better you be hidden

should the officers return.

Thank you, Christophe.

I owe you a huge debt of gratitude.

I'm happy to offer you temporary shelter.

But my family will be

in danger if your stay

becomes a long-term arrangement.

Of course.

Just a few days would be appreciated.

I have friends on the east side of Bavaria.

I'll head to them once

the search dies down.

Good.

Can I ask you something?

Of course.

The book.

You haven't let it go since you arrived.

What is the meaning of it?

If I don't tell you,

then you don't have to

lie when they ask you.

But I assure you, I am no criminal.

I pose no threat to you, or

your family, or anyone else.

I was a historian by trade.

Doing research for the Fuehrer.

But I uncovered some dark secrets

about the Fuehrer's plans for our country,

and I felt it was my

duty to step and stop it.

CHRISTOPHE:
I understand.

I don't support the current regime.

Although I will not voice

that openly, of course.

Indeed.

We will provide you with food and shelter.

All I expect in return

is respect for my family.

Yes, of course.

Thank you.

(SOMBER MUSIC PLAYING)

(GRUNTING)

Here you go, my love.

Thank you, sweetheart.

I like seeing sweat on

a working man's forehead.

Oh, do you now?

(GROWLS)

(BOTH LAUGHING)

Christophe!

Christophe.

What is it?

Christophe, look.

(PANTING)

They know he's here.

(PANTING)

Make sure Benjamin

returns to the attic, okay?

Okay.

Tell Esther we have visitors.

Okay.

It will be all right.
