Mr. Lambert, I am Inspector Plutova.

Good morning.

Good morning.

Nice place.

Well, I thought you were

away for seven years

and it would be a nice change for you

to be in a beautiful place in Moscow.

Thank you.

Seven years is such a long time

for a small case you had there.

I hope French prisons

are not as bad I hear.

I understand you appreciate fine art.


The city is now a major

creative center of the world.

You make an excellent tour guide.

I took over the department two

years ago from Inspector Dassaiev.

- He retired.

- He was a good guy.

- Send him my best regards.

- I will.

I would love for you to come

and visit our facilities.

The new Moscow Police is very

high tech, new methods.

I am, however,

working on a very old case.

You see, a major modern art

painting was stolen 10 years ago

from the Museum of Modern Art.

It was never recovered.

So I thought perhaps you could be of

some assistance of helping us to find it.

I am an old school kind of guy.

So I'm afraid I won't be of much help...

with your high tech investigation.

Don't worry about it.

I'll take care of that.

Let's give it a try.


Look... My son was killed

a few months ago.

He had a girlfriend.

I just came to collect his things.

I know...

and I am sorry for your loss.

Listen, you have my number.

Call me tomorrow to set up the time.

This old case needs closure.

It was good talking to you.


What's happened?

Your son, I raised him for seven years.

He was great for years.

Then two years ago,

when he dropped from university...

he changed, Viktor.

Got the wrong friends.

Started to get into trouble.

What kind of trouble?



I forced him into a rehab center.

For a while he got better.

So I took him back to Grozny.

I wanted him to help me run

the ballet company.

You know, with bookings and stuff.

He did very well for few months.

But then a year ago, he moved

back to Moscow. Met a girl.

- What do you know about her?

- Katerina.

She's a good girl.

She's an artist, a photographer.

She came here a few times

for dinner with him.

Jeremie came to see to me the day

before he was killed, Viktor.

He was very upset because

Katerina left him.

I tried to talk to him

but he's like you, Viktor.

He doesn't say much.

He kept everything to himself.

And then...

no one knows what happened.

No one?

No one, Viktor. No one.

The police couldn't find anything.

I am his father. And I wasn't here.


- I am...

- Yeah, I know.

I know who you are.

The police, they've already been here.

They left your picture and asked

me to call them if you contact me.

May I... May I come in?

- Sure.

- Thank you.

It's the day we met.

It's a wonderful picture.

Did you love my son?

He had the same smile

as when he was a baby.

Why did you leave him?

Because he lied to me.

I know about your family.

I know about you.

Jeremie promised me that he

would stay out of troubles.

That he wouldn't touch drugs anymore.

But then he became obsessed

with making money.

One day he came back to

the house with a lot of cash.

I knew he was involved with something

illegal. I don't want that in my life.

We argued and I left him.

Listen, I haven't talked to anyone.

I haven't talked to the police.

So please. Go now.

Who got him into drugs?


Tell me.

A guy...

named Vasily.

Was his dealer.

He's bartender at Takiv Circle.

He's the one who got him into drugs.

That's all I know. Please.

I am Jeremie's father.

You knew Jeremie.

I understand you're the one

that got my son into drugs.
