No thanks, I don't smoke.

Shit, it's cold.

We could go in.

- Too many people.

Do you know them all?

- Yes.

They're sort of my family.

I've still got your bag.

- Keep it for me.

Well, fine... I'd better go inside.

I'm meeting friends later at my place.


Have fun.

This one needs one, too.

- This one?

Yes, please.


- That one is okay.


I guess that's the lot.

Let's knock off.

Sort of like...

Rupert, come on!

Well, then I'll go ahead.

Great song. What does it mean?

I drank raki...

Raki? Oh, right.

- ... I drank wine,

and I partied.

Like it!

- Yes.

What do you do?

My mother thinks

I'm at drama college.

But I'm not.

She'll find out sooner or later.


I'm scared about that.

And what do you want to do?

Don't know yet.

And you?

I like what I do.

Shovelling rubbish?

I'm doing a school- leaving certificate

in the evenings.

Then I want to study landscape design

as a correspondence course.

Landscape design, yeah?


It would suit you.

The mess doesn't bother me.

Yes, but you don't live here.

Want to get us something to eat?

If you're paying. I'm broke.

You still have 20 euros.

- I do?

Didn't you borrow them this morning?

- I've no idea what you mean.

What should I get you?

Shall we watch a film?

What film?

- You know Roland Klick's "Supermarket"?

- Legenda no traduzida -

Never heard of it.

You don't know "Supermarket"?

So what if I don't?

You want that?

No, help yourself.


- Yes.

Do you always turn the sound off?

What's with the weird colours?

I've no idea what you mean.

The colours are weird.


It's a 70s film.

Maybe that's why.

Can we watch something else?

You work nights or what?


You can come up with me.

I was just returning your things.

what things?

The ones harmed.

What did you borrow?

- Things I'm wearing.

You can keep them.


- Yes.

I'm off to bed.

- Okay.

You can stay over if you want.

- I have to go home.


Whatever you say.

Okay, then I'm coming along.

What are you drinking, Jesus?


The table's set.

I'll go ahead, then.

Yes, help yourselves.

Is Jesus your real name?


It was a real cross to me as a child.

And the job creation scheme

made me study carpentry.

It was all they had on offer.

But I'd rather be an actor

or a stuntman an.

Tuncay used to act.

- Dearest...

Do you know "The Robbers"?

- Who?

You do know Schiller?

- Know who?

Tell him to do some reading, Cem!

Tuncay was cast as Schufterle,

the youngest and least competent robber.

- Legenda no traduzida -

When his line finally came up,

he got a fit of the giggles on stage.


- It was funny.

Do you know, Schufterle,

how many lives have been lost?

Eighty- three, they say.

The powder- magazine alone

blew 60 to smithereens.

As I chanced to

pass by a dwelling,

I heard a great

clamour within.

I looked in and what did

I see by the light within?

A child.

Fresh and ruddy it was.

It was lying on the

oor under a table.

Poor little wretch! said

I, you'll catch your death,

and threw it

into the ames!

Take a seat. Go

on, take a seat.

A child.

Fresh and ruddy it was.

It was lying

on the oor...

under a table.

Nice evening.

Where's the blow- up

mattress? - It's punctured.

No problem, I'll

take the oor.

I think I drank

too much. - Yeah?

You have to chuck?

We'll see.

Don't you have work?


- Weekend?

What do you want to do?

- I've no idea.

You bit me,

look at my hand!

You've torn it to shreds.

I'll kill you, you

witch! I'll kill you!

Halim, Halim, Halim. Please,
