[2012] [Assassin's Bullet] English Transcript

(1) As you can see,
(2) our Cultural Attache Department has extended our ESL program
(3) to the rest of Bulgaria with extraordinary results.
(4) Sofia Private School has the best scores in the country.
(5) I think you should give each and every one of yourselves
(6) a round of applause for this extraordinary accomplishment.
(7) Aah!
(8) No witnesses.
(9) So how's the good doctor this evening?
(10) Happy to have the company of my old friend.
(11) Attractive, huh?
(12) Yes, very.
(13) So what's it been now, Robert, hmm?
(14) Three years? Four?
(15) It's been four years today, actually.
(16) Look around, my friend.
(17) If you wanted to,
(18) you could go home with a different one every night.
(19) It's not exactly my style, you know that.
(20) What, then?
(21) Ah, you're still punishing yourself
(22) about the accident, are you?
(23) Oh, Robert, you need to deal with it, my friend.
(24) I know what carrying that kind of burden around can do to you.
(25) I appreciate your concern as always,
(26) but as long as I stay here in Eastern Europe,
(27) all of that stays back in New York. Out of sight, out of mind.
(28) Well, that's..
(29) It doesn't work that way, my friend.
(30) I think you need therapy.
(31) I'll tell you what I do need. I need a drink.
(32) Where's our waitress?
(33) So, Vicki, how are we today, hmm?
(34) I'm okay.
(35) Good.
(36) Any more memory lapses, hmm?
(37) Any more bad dreams?
(38) I sense that you're avoiding conversation today.
(39) Perhaps you'll indulge me in a brief activity, hmm?
(40) It's a hypnotic technique we use to open a patient's senses,
(41) to tap into the imagination.
(42) It's really quite harmless. You can trust me.
(43) You're not afraid of a simple little blindfold, are you?
(44) You can remove it whenever you want to.
(45) I promise.
(46) And just relax.
(47) Breathe and relax.
(48) Now, I asked you about your dreams.
(49) Any recently that you recall?
(50) Yes, one.
(51) Go on.
(52) It's embarrassing, actually.
(53) It's like a re-creation from something I read long ago.
(54) Have you read Hubert Selby, Jr., Last Exit to Brooklyn?
(55) No, I can't say I have.
(56) There is this part at the end
(57) where this junkie chick climbs into an abandoned car
(58) and lets every guy in the neighborhood screw her.
(59) Every scumbag and lowlife for miles around get in this line,
(60) and the line goes around the block.
(61) How did it affect you, the scene, when you read it?
(62) At the time, it was disturbing.
(63) But in this dream..
(64) I'm the girl in the abandoned car.
(65) I can never see their faces.
(66) They're hidden by keffiyehs,
(67) you know, those Arabic scarves.
(68) They're pulled over their faces,
(69) and every one of those men..
(70) Go on.
(71) They're all the same man.
(72) Have you thought who he might be..
(73) the man wearing the keffiyeh?
(74) Vicki?
(75) Vicki?
(76) Vicki? What?
(77) You blanked out there.
(78) Went somewhere else as you answered my questions.
(79) I did?
(80) Answered your questions?
(81) What questions? What did I say?
(82) Well, you were away for several moments.
(83) You don't remember what we were talking about?
(84) No, I don't remember.
(85) One moment, please.
(86) Oh, here she is now.
(87) This is the man from the embassy, Vicki.
(88) Robert Diggs.
(89) Please meet my wife, Vicki Denov.
(90) Pleased to meet you. Call me Vicki.
(91) Sure.
(92) So you'll be spending some time with us today then?
(93) Yes, that's correct.
(94) Your English is excellent, by the way.
(95) It better be.
(96) Shall we? I'm running late.
(97) Sure. It's a pleasure.
(98) Bye.
(99) Proper nouns includes words like Sofia and Bulgaria.
(100) When writing proper nouns, you capitalize the first letter.

(101) Pavo, can you give us examples of proper nouns?
(102) Atea, Mexico,
(103) New York, Istanbul,
(104) Washington, Mexico City,
(105) Cairo.
(106) Tiger Woods.
(107) David Beckham.
(108) Very good. You may sit.
(109) Remember: names, places, and titles.
(110) I'm going to the ambassador's office.
(111) Robert Diggs. Ambassador.
(112) Good to finally meet you.
(113) Pleasure's all mine, ambassador.
(114) Sorry to drag you in like this.
(115) Well, I have to admit, sir,
(116) that your email did arouse my curiosity.
(117) Let's get some air.
(118) Project Sofia? Sure, I remember.
(119) A counter-terrorism program based here in the city, defunct now.
(120) Yes. Black ops.
(121) A lot of fuss in the press about it here, though.
(122) Our agents were good guys, really great.
(123) They've been able to infiltrate
(124) some of the best organized terrorist-radical groups
(125) from New York to Madrid,
(126) and they were not able..
(127) not able to get into Sofia, ever.
(128) Not then, not now.
(129) I gotta talk to you about what's going on with Sofia today.
(130) I thought it was dead in the water.
(131) Yeah. Seemed to be
(132) until yesterday.
(133) Yeah, I read about this this morning.
(134) Hmm. I've been on the phone all night with the States dealing with this.
(135) Turns out Washington knows all about the fella
(136) this vigilante terminated.
(137) He was a target of highest priority for us,
(138) and we've never been able to get anywhere near him.
(139) Oh, I guess the guys back home are feeling some heat from higher up,
(140) and now they want to find out exactly what's going on here.
(141) So I have been specifically instructed to, quote, unquote, persuade you
(142) to take charge of the investigation here.
(143) Why me?
(144) Because you are exemplary.
(145) No, seriously.
(146) That's what your FBI friends called you. They said you were exemplary.
(147) I've never had anybody say I was exemplary in my whole life.
(148) Leaving law enforcement
(149) was a well-thought-out decision on my part, ambassador.
(150) Yeah. Yeah, I know.
(151) I know. They told me about that, and I'm truly sorry.
(152) Come on.
(153) But it seems that the ramifications of this are very big.. politically, globally.
(154) See, these vigilantes have taken on a whole string of high-profile targets,
(155) targets your FBI guys told me on the phone last night
(156) that they've been tracking for years and could never get a look at.
(157) So now they need to know
(158) how come these vigilantes can get inside when they can't?
(159) And who are they, these guys?
(160) And what do they know? How do they know it?
(161) And why them, not us?
(162) What intel do we have?
(163) They tell me that some militant is setting up safe houses.
(164) He doesn't know why, but he knows they're here in villages.
(165) Islamic Jihad.
(166) Am I being pressured into this assignment, sir?
(167) You have complete disclosure, full disclosure, everything.
(168) Consul General has told me
(169) that your clearances have been made complete.
(170) If you need help from local law enforcement, you have it.
(171) We need to get a handle on this, Robert.
(172) And you're the man for it.
(173) You're..
(174) Well, you know what you are.
(175) Exemplary Exemplary
(176) Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Wait.
(177) Lonewolf. Proceeding with next target.
(178) No witnesses.
(179) These are crazy times.
(180) No. He's clever, this guy,
(181) and based on the efficiency of the hit, very well equipped.
(182) Any idea who might be behind it?
(183) None whatsoever, but, uh,
(184) it does have me a little bit curious as to why.
(185) Why don't you give me your professional opinion?
(186) I mean, what makes somebody become a vigilante?
(187) I mean, profile him for me.
(188) Well, let's see.
(189) Well, to take responsibility for the crime, right?
(190) But he hides behind a mask.
(191) It takes guts, patience,
(192) and an odd sort of morality.
(193) And he's gotten away with it a number of times,
(194) which has probably emboldened him and..
(195) makes him think he's not gonna get caught.
(196) Oh, lovely.
(197) Well, let's hope he's wrong about that.
(198) New song begins 1
(199) Ah, our friend from the other night.
(200) The fascinating thing about the female form is its supple nature, is it not?
(201) Its elasticity, its alacrity, and..
(202) variability.
(203) You're a slow starter, my friend,
(204) but I'll give you this: you have impeccable taste.
(205) She's interested in you.
(206) It's obvious.
(207) Robert, celibacy is for monks, my friend,
(208) and I'm not convinced it's very good for them, either.
(209) Look, it's not that I don't want to meet somebody,
(210) I just..
(211) I don't want to lose somebody, either.
(212) I'm not suggesting you marry her.
(213) Anyway, these Eastern Bloc girls can be trouble.
(214) No, just keep it short and sweet.
(215) Two dates, three maximum.
(216) There's definitely something about her.
(217) Well, go for it, my friend.
(218) You only live once, allegedly, right?
(219) What are you doing? Where you going?
(220) Come on, don't leave me here.
(221) I'm sure I'm not even her type.
(222) Listen, Robert..
(223) I know that losing your wife was tough, the worst.
(224) I'm going to ask you a question. You don't have to answer it.
(225) Is it you're afraid of losing another woman,
(226) or is it you don't think you deserve to have one, hmm?
(227) I'll see you very soon, my friend.
(228) Very soon.
(229) Wait.
(230) You are stunning.
(231) I'm sorry. I shouldn't have said that.
(232) Would you care to join me, miss?
(233) I'd love to.
(234) I'll go change.
(235) Your dancing is..
(236) It's extraordinary. I've never seen anything like it.
(237) You're nice for an American.
(238) Thank you.
(239) Am I making you nervous?
(240) No, no, not at all.
(241) It's just that, um..
(242) you, uh". You remind me of someone.
(243) Your wife perhaps back in America?
(244) Oh, this? No, no, no.
(245) I'm not married.
(246) Oh, divorced.
(247) Is it an American custom to wear the ring of the ex-wife?
(248) No, no, no. I just wear it because, uh..
(249) Because you still love her?
(250) Wait. No, no, no. You don't understand.
(251) Let me explain.
(252) Uh..
(253) Well, she, uh, she died a few years ago.
(254) I'm sorry.
(255) No, no.
(256) I should go.
(257) No, no.
(258) Please tell me your name.
(259) Ursula.
(260) Ursula.
(261) I'm Robert.
(262) Nice to meet you, Robert.
(263) Well, look, I'd really love to see you again.
(264) Can I have your number?
(265) So you blanked out completely, like last time?
(266) Yes.
(267) Do you recall anything this time?
(268) Nothing.
(269) Well, think and tell me what you do remember.
(270) It was a few days ago.
(271) I was in the kitchen.
(272) Mihail had left for work.
(273) The next thing I remember it was night time.
(274) I'm in bed.
(275) I hadn't shown up for work all day.
(276) And you don't remember anything that happened that day?
(277) Nothing.
(278) The next morning when I woke up,
(279) I was so exhausted, I could hardly get out of bed.
(280) Are you still having the headaches?
(281) Are you still having the headaches?
(282) Sometimes.
(283) Have you heard of syncope? No.
(284) It's complete loss of consciousness,
(285) interruption of awareness of one's self and surroundings.
(286) If you feel yourself blanking out again, it's simple.
(287) Just take deep breaths.
(288) Deep breaths.
(289) All right.
(290) Mr. Diggs.
(291) A couple of people I want you to meet.
(292) Officer Aleksander Mulichev, Officer Greg Ospasov.
(293) Sofia's best, and they both speak English.
(294) Gregor Ospasov. A pleasure.
(295) Great to meet you. Please call me Aleks.
(296) They're gonna give you all the help that local law enforcement can provide.
(297) They're good guys-
(298) Trust them with your life.
(299) The deceased is an explosives expert, affiliated with Islamic Jihad.
(300) Of course.
(301) The killer shot the dog, also.
(302) This is the 12th connected killing you've seen in six months?
(303) Yeah, that's right,
(304) and just one piece of forensic evidence,
(305) a Romanian brand of cigarette butt with lipstick
(306) was found on the sidewalk near one of the killings.
(307) It could belong to anyone.
(308) There is also a melted VHS tape from an Arabic souvenir shop.
(309) Completely clean. Untraceable.
(310) Unknown origin.
(311) So, now we've got a long-range sniper killing.
(312) Any forensic evidence at the shooter's post?
(313) Gunshot residue, hairs, fibers, shells, anything?
(314) We're working on it. Sifting the dirt.
(315) 600 meters.
(316) Robert Diggs. U.S. Embassy.
(317) I'm gonna go take a look.
(318) Robert?
(319) Nah. If that were the case,
(320) the body would have wound up somewhere over here in this proximity.
(321) No, the killer let him finish his prayer,
(322) and then hit when he stood up and was just about to turn.
(323) That's why the body wound up here.
(324) So that means the shots didn't come from there.
(325) They came from there.
(326) Huh?
(327) Hey, look at this.
(328) Marks from a rifle stand, huh?
(329) Vicki.
(330) Vicki..
(331) Oh, I completely understand.
(332) Hey, look, I'll have to call you right back, okay?
(333) The printout you asked for.
(334) This is all they were able to retrieve from the VHS tape?
(335) Sorry, it was too damaged.
(336) Even with the enhancement? Even with.
(337) This just came in.
(338) We've gone international.
(339) The press picked on the Jinn murders.
(340) Son of a bitch.
(341) Have you seen this?
(342) It's not my fault.
(343) This was leaked by your friends back home.
(344) Sit down.
(345) I told them I thought they were nuts,
(346) but they said that they wanted the world to know
(347) that they had their best man on the case.
(348) With all due respect, sir,
(349) was there any thought given to compromising the investigation?
(350) I'm a political appointee. I have this job
(351) because I gave the president's election committee a bag of money.
(352) I don't get to make decisions.
(353) They want this out there, well, it's out there.
(354) The best case I can suggest is,
(355) maybe it'll rouse up a person of interest. I don't know.
(356) They're desperate. I told you that.
(357) You think tipping our hand like this is gonna help expedite that?
(358) Robert, I am the messenger. Don't shoot me.
(359) They didn't like your fried videotape, so they said they were going with this.
(360) I have car dealerships at home.
(361) I can get you a great deal on wheels,
(362) but I have to admit I'm a little bit over my head on this stuff.
(363) Bulgaria was not the post I wanted.
(364) I was hoping for Paris.
(365) That's what they hinted at, Paris.
(366) Oh, maybe I didn't give them enough money.
(367) I don't know.
(368) Your guys want results, Robert.
(369) We are doing the best we can.
(370) That was a lucky find, the art exhibit.
(371) He's a local painter.
(372) Funny, I don't think I've ever come across one before.
(373) Maybe you just haven't been paying attention to what's around you.
(374) Maybe not.
(375) So what made you come to Sofia?
(376) Change of scenery, new opportunities, that sort of thing.
(377) And you like your employer, the government of the U.S.?
(378) Yeah, fine.
(379) What about you? You like what you do?
(380) I love it.
(381) I'd like to live in the mountains one day,
(382) away from the city.
(383) I have to go.
(384) Really? So soon?
(385) What time do you go on tonight? I'd love to come and see you.
(386) No, not tonight.
(387) I'm sorry, Robert. I have to go.
(388) You're very nice, Robert.
(389) I'd like it if you call me.
(390) Okay, I will.
(391) Next target, Abdullah Said.
(392) Heh.
(393) Wait a minute.
(394) It's a bag.
(395) That's it.
(396) The last time we were together,
(397) you became agitated when I mentioned your parents, remember?
(398) When I asked you if you missed them?
(399) Now..
(400) I want you to cast your mind back, Vicki.
(401) I want you to think about that little girl,
(402) what life was like for her after her parents died.
(403) Aah!
(404) Aah!
(405) Now.. I'm going to ask you some questions that may seem strange,
(406) but I want you to answer them naturally, okay?
(407) Now, lie back, get comfortable.
(408) All right, good.
(409) And relax and breathe.
(410) Breathe.
(411) Will you take off your glasses, please?
(412) Tell me your full name.
(413) Victoria Denov.
(414) What year were you born in?
(415) 1970s.. Seventy-..
(416) 77, I think.
(417) What city were you born in?
(418) Sofia.
(419) No, Paris.
(420) Wait..
(421) What is your mother's first name?
(422) Your mother's first name, Vicki.
(423) Now, you must try and answer these questions.
(424) What is your mother's name?
(425) I can't.. I can't remember.
(426) Calm.. calm down.
(427) Breathe. Breathe.
(428) Memory loss is a natural reaction in some cases,
(429) so breathe.
(430) That's it now.
(431) Sometimes it's a product of something as simple as stress, okay?
(432) You guys blame everything on stress.
(433) So I'm not going crazy?
(434) No, you're not going crazy.
(435) Both laugh 1
(436) Does this feel right to you?
(437) It feels perfect to me.
(438) It feels perfectly right to me, too.
(439) How are you today?
(440) I think you know what I'm going to ask you.
(441) The same thing I ask you every time we meet.
(442) Are you ready to tell me about your parents..
(443) the family tragedy that made you what you are today?
(444) What's your thought? Do you feel something about that?
(445) I don't know why we meet
(446) if you're not going to participate in our sessions.
(447) Tell me about your parents' death.
(448) Allahu Akbar!
(449) Excuse me, um..
(450) isn't Ursula supposed to be on at 6:00 tonight?
(451) No. She's not in tonight.
(452) Robert. Hey.
(453) Are you leaving?
(454) I was supposed to meet the girl here.
(455) Ah, no, stay with me. I'll buy you a drink.
(456) Excuse me, my friend.
(457) Two dark scotches, please, on the rocks.
(458) I don't get it. We had an amazing time together, it was all great.
(459) I was supposed to meet her here and she doesn't show.
(460) Ah, ever the hopeless romantic.
(461) Remember, Robert, it might just be your passport she's falling in love with.
(462) That's a little cynical, isn't it, Aaron?
(463) Oh, so it's love, is it?
(464) Anyway, how's that case of yours? Any progress to report?
(465) Nothing yet.
(466) I don't think I'll ever find out who this killer is.
(467) There she is.
(468) What was that about?
(469) I don't know. Maybe it's a part of her act.
(470) There she goes.
(471) I'm going after her.
(472) Ursula! Ursula, please, it's Robert.
(473) Just open the door.
(474) Robert?
(475) Come on, sweetie, I just want to talk to you.
(476) Please let me in.
(477) You must leave.
(478) It's okay.
(479) All right? It's all right.
(480) Stop, stop, stop. What, what?
(481) I'm sick, okay?
(482) What are you talking about?
(483) Something is happening to me.
(484) The headaches, the blackouts.
(485) It's like I'm going insane.
(486) We'll just leave Sofia.
(487) We can go anywhere you want to go.
(488) I can't.
(489) Come with me. Please, please.
(490) There is something important I must do.
(491) I need two days.
(492) Two days? Why? Why not right now?
(493) Listen, there is a cafe next to the National Theater.
(494) Meet me there at noon the day after tomorrow.
(495) Please.
(496) No questions. That's all I ask.
(497) Two days.
(498) Multiple personality disorder.
(499) Perfect.
(500) Lonewolf,
(501) I am ready for your final instructions.
(502) Excellent.
(503) Excellent.
(504) Proceed to the final target.
(505) Hey.
(506) Excuse me.
(507) Get out of the way.
(508) Aah!
(509) Aah! Aah!
(510) No witnesses.
(511) Aah!
(512) Give me your full name.
(513) Victoria Denov.
(514) What year were you born?
(515) What is your mother's first name?
(516) What city were you born in?
(517) Sofia.
(518) No, Paris?
(519) Hello?
(520) You look tired.
(521) Where are you?
(522) How is your knee?
(523) What did you say?
(524) Where are you?
(525) You look very handsome.
(526) Where are you?
(527) Robert, I'm sorry.
(528) I love you, but I can't.
(529) Wait. Wait.
(530) Please, don't go.
(531) Papers are reporting
(532) that one of the top military strategists of the T.I.J.'s been killed
(533) in the strike at the madrasa.
(534) It is confirmed it was a front for training terrorists.
(535) Wait. Yeah?
(536) Archive this.
(537) Close the file.
(538) Aaron,
(539) I'm sure you're with a patient, but, uh..
(540) I really need to speak with you. It's important.
(541) Call me back.
(542) See, Mihail?
(543) Even the exemplary one couldn't figure it out.
