An eye for an eye?

You're wrong.

Revenge isn't sweet.

It's an evil act.

That will haunt you forever.

Revenge is born out of helplessness.

Overcome it and your

vindictive spirit will subside.

Sometimes ignorance

can be the best revenge.



Based on a true story

Pull back!

- Are you all right?

- She just popped up.

- On a pedestrian crossing!

- I'm okay. Ouch...

We'll take you to the hospital,

just in case.

No need, really.

No one will buy our story.

- You just shut up, okay?

- Actually...

What were you doing down there?

Say what?

We'll drop you off

anywhere you want.

- To the center?

- We're headed elsewhere.

No problem, really.

I think she broke jail.

Let's stay out of it.

That's ridiculous.

And tactless.


I just dropped my keys.

- Luckily the cover came off.

- You see?

Please ignore him.


Isn't she lucky?

An unprecedented win

at this early stage!

Ahead of us is the final round

of our quiz "One of a hundred".

Our grand prize is

this gorgeous apartment

in the city's prime location.

You can quit now and keep

all you've won so far.

Or risk losing it all if you fail,

except our consolation prize:

a food processor.

- Will you take the risk?

- Yes.

- You sure?

- Yes.

- Still time to quit.

- No.

I already know the number.

What's your guess?

No need to frown,

keep your pretty eyes open,

watch and... ta-dah!

Please concentrate.






Three... Hello!




- Eighty, you said?

- Eighty, yes.



...dear channel,

eighty it is!

It's a scoop-the-pool win!

First time ever

in this show!

Ladies and gentlemen,

she takes it all!

The trip to Bora Bora,

the Mercedes, and the chic apartment!


137 shows to date

and just three trips.

What's the scam?

Just a moment.

Think, oh think!

Ten seconds left.


Cinco in Spanish is...


There's a bonus.

The correct answer will get you

ten boxes of Dry Martini.


In German?


- Say it again.

- Three.

No need to frown.

Watch and... ta-dah!

Ochenta in Spanish?


They were in league.

Sue them.

- What about other numbers?

- They were prepared.

"You know".

Uno in Italian is one.

"It's hot in here".

Hot sounds like six in Hungarian.

T-shirt sounds like

nine in Hebrew.

"Hot T-shirt" for 69.

Sorry it's so late.


Sorry. Like forty in Russian.

You'll win the court case.

You're a genius.

I'm observant.

I notice what I want to notice.


Thanks a million.

- Finder's reward will do.

- Reward?

10% of what you've saved.


You'll end up broadcasting

for inmates, you rat!

Wow! Nice place to live...

I inherited it.


Hold on! Could I please

take a quick look?

I love old houses.

We'll be late.

Refresh my memory:

the tail wags the dog

or the dog wags the tail?


You wait.

The dog wags he tail.

Wow! Beautiful stuccos!

I'm renovating them.

- You have experience?

- Some.

I studied art conservation.

- Would you consider selling it?

- Perhaps.

I'd offer a reasonable price.

The price won't be reasonable.

- He has to be around?

- Yes.

He keeps an eye on me.

I'm responsible for your safety.

- It's not necessary.

- Bruno knows better.


A guy I know.

You see the castle from here?



I just love your Chinese!

Thank you.


Let's buy a flat in the Old Town.

In Lublin? Why?

It's so awfully cool!

Give me a break.

It's a Disney World

for fast food eaters.

Cool it may be

to have a beer there.

Besides, you have a home

a half-hour drive away.

It's yours.

And I prefer Lublin.



It's so...

I'm in seventh heaven!

I kid you not.

She inherited it.

It's a bargain.

The one who broke jail?

Says who?

- Dime told me.

- Bullshit. I hate him.

I like him.

He spies on me.

Protects you, I'd say.

Got a crush on me.

No! It may not show,

but he's gay.

Gay my ass.

You'd fall in love with the place.

I fell in love long ago.

With you.


Stay put.

A swap?


My bag for yours.

Shove it.

Bad girl.

But I won't spank you.

I overreacted then, sorry.

One million euros.

A house in Tuscany.

No worries for the rest

of your life.

I'm a rebel.

Love unrest.

Wrong answer.

Money has a universal appeal because it's

the best tool against this world's misery.

- How did you find me here?

- Patience and open eyes.

Want to know?

Your friend tipped me off.

- Need a hand?

- I'm good.

You like Thai food?


Perfect timing!

I'm starved.

He must be very jealous.

Dime? He obeys Bruno.

Dime? Funny nickname.

It's Jeremi's last name.

I told Bruno you wanted

to sell the apartment.

If it's really a bargain,

he says he'll buy it.

It's not such a bargain.

I need money.

No room for negotiation?

You're not the buyer.

It's your buddy? Man?


What does he do?

Brainwashes the populice.


Bruno says so.

He's a spin doctor.

The PR guy who turns morons

into humans.

"The Lublin Voice"

from 1939?

I found it in a wall.

Construction workers

leave their mark that way.

What's this?

May I?

"The Spanish Diary".

September 20, 1936?

Marseilles. I'm boarding a ship

bound to Barcelona.

Likely one way,

as siding with the Republicans
