If there was only one person

in the world

who would make you happy,

who was made for you,

what would you sacrifice

to find him?

How many centuries

would you search for him?

And if you were

to ever find him,

would you let him go?

Wouldn't you hold him as tight

as possible with both arms

and never, ever let him go?

What did we jet to Paris

for anyway?

You shouldn't have killed

the pilot.


Two more pages.

I want to know how it ends.


- What a shame.

- What?.

It isn't your fault.

Let me guess.

Her eyes were too pretty

to be true.

Don't listen to her, Louise.

You'll be lucky sometime.


Watch out!


Get down on the ground!

Get down, I said!

Hands behind your head!

Spread your legs!

Stay down!


Out of the way!

Let go!



Excuse me!


Did you see a guy run past?.

This tall?.

Hooded sweatshirt, dark pants.


What have you got?.

Not a trace.

I can't believe it!

May I sit down next to you?.

I have to rest a bit.

That rat was too fast for me.

What'd he do?.


The rat who was too

Fast for you.

He ripped off a Russian pimp

we were about to arrest.


I bet he doesn't know

who he ripped off,

but he nearly screwed up

our operation.



Doesn't that hurt?.

It's okay.

There's broken glass everywhere.

Thanks for the warning.

It's too late.

What now?.

I have to arrest you.

- If you catch me.

- If I catch you?.

I got away once.

I didn't know

who I was chasing.

But now I know

who I'm running from.

Does it make you faster?.

What kind of cop are you?.

We could...

Stay here.

Stop it.

I don't want to hurt you.

Sorry, Tom.

"Insufficient funds.

Contact your bank."

Hey, sweetheart.

You didn't tell me your

probation officer is so nice.

Could I have a glass of water?.

Yes, of course.

- Are you crazy?.

- F*ck off, man!

Let her in.


Cold nights

Let your eyes shine

Hollow dreams

And my soul makes

its demands

Fast breathing

Our bodies quiver

Gently trembling...

And my soul is burning

I'm dying of thirst.

Buy me a drink if I pay?.

No, don't!


Keep it.

As a down payment for gazing

into your beautiful eyes.

Where are your friends?.

What friends?.

Nobody your age goes out

without their clique.

I fly solo.

If you want to be different

you have two choices.

You are destroyed

by their world,

or you create your own world.

You need money for that.

All you need is courage.

And you have both.

Enough for two.

I'd rather do my own thing.

Good luck.

You don't see it yourself.

Your eyes are blind,

although they betray you

with every glance.

What are you talking about?.

About what's inside you.

And what is it?.

Something special.



You'd be the first human

being to notice it.

I'm no human being.

Berlin. There was a tragic

plane crash last night.

A plane coming from Paris

crashed within city limits...

The lions first dig

into the fallen prey,

always a bloody but

fascinating spectacle.

I was so excited about you

coming that I couldn't sleep.


Come on!

Good evening.

What did you do to me?.

Sit down.

What did you do to me?.


I know what you need.

What's in there?.

Your new life.

To immortality.

That's all bullshit!

You're all crazy!


Your new trophy doesn't seem

to get the picture.

You'll have to

show her the proof.

If you want her to swim,

throw her in the water.

- You have a girl for me?.

- Yes.

- Does she have any experience?.

- Not yet.

What are you doing to me?.

I'll teach you something

you don't want to learn.
