The Housekeeper. Russian Movie. StarMedia. Comedy. English Subtitles


Star Media presents Oh, God! You should have been in school long ago! – It’s time for you to go to the university!
– This is none of your business! If you can’t cope with the kids then leave! Who can’t cope with the kids? I’m sorry, Yelena Vasilyevna,
but I’m a nanny and not a survival school trainer! Masha, how are you
dressed? Didn’t I tell you that one can’t mix more
than three colors in a dress? – Who dressed you?
– Nanny did! Angelina, I’ll need you when
you come back from the institute. God, I’m still here! I’ll go mad here! Yelena Vasilyevna, I’m tired!
They are torturing me! It’s your job! We caught you! God, how tired I am of you! Do you know what people do
with horses when they get tired? The weather is beautiful today. I’ll do everything.
I’m satisfied with everything. The people around me love me.
Everything is fine. My life is a success. What is going on? THE HOUSEKEEPER Ilya Glinnikov Alika Smekhova Konstantin Milovanov Polina Vorobyova, Sergey

– Yuriy Minzyanov and Vlad Ryashin Sofa! Sofa! Come to me.
Sofa, come to me. Hey, give my dog back. You should say “hello”
first. And “thank you” next. Sofa, come here. You’re Sophia, aren’t you?
Nice to meet you, I’m Alexei. You may call me simply Lesha.
Sonya, what is your owner’s name? Give the dog back. She chose me herself. Am I
right? Am I right, Sonechka? How much do you want? You like commerce, don’t you?
Then just kiss me. Kiss you? Did you see
yourself in the mirror? Brat. Is it that bad? Thank you. Hold her. – Hi.
– Hello. Look, did you do the homework? I didn’t. I’ve been watching football
all the night through. Zhenya, you always know everything.
Tell me, who is that novice? That one? That is Angelina.
She came from some London school. Something didn’t work out there. I’m not surprised. She is a
classic bitch. We should show her. Half of the year is like her.
You can’t change everybody. I wasn’t talking about everybody. That’s it, Masha. Stop it!
Children, stop. Masha, don’t do it! Masha, that’s enough! Vanya!
Stop! Masha, Vanya, stop! It’s time for you to go to school.
Stop! I’m tired. That’s it. Bring your children up yourself. Children, good bye. Shoot here. Don’t let the dog stand on the
floor. Her paws will get dirty. Look, the novice is here. Can’t you see that she is thirsty? Guys, why are you looking at me?
Go and bring a bowl with water. Can I help you? – You again?
– Sonya, honey, I’m glad to see you too. Come on, let’s drink some water. You’re crazy, aren’t you? Only in your presence. Otherwise
I’m the pride of this year. I thought you were a local clown. – How much do I owe you for the water?
– The price consists of 11 numbers. I don’t get it. It’s your phone number. Take my rucksack. Where are you going? Sophochka… Guy, you… Why are you shooting? Get off. Guy, stand up. Hey, stand up. Guy, are you alive? Guys, what’s the matter with him?
He must be taken to a hospital. Step side. What did they do to you? I told you that girls
won’t bring you any good. Take him by his hands and
legs and get him in the car. Come on, help them. Move it. Sophochka. Sofa. Close the door. But… – I told you to close the door.
– What about me? You’re staying here. You. Sonya. What? What did you say? What? Where am I? What
has happened to me? What is my name? I think your name is Lesha.
Look, Alexei, I didn’t want to run your down. I didn’t, honestly. Save your explanations
for the authorities. For what authorities? For law-enforcement authorities,
of course. Don’t you understand? You’ll have huge problems now. How much? How much do you want? Do you measure everything with
money? What if I lose capability? What if my state is serious? I can feel that my
hand doesn’t work right. So? What do I do now? I don’t know but we
can’t go to the hospital. You’ll have to tell everything there.
And you’ll end up in prison. We can’t go to my place, for
you’ll have to explain everything there too, and you’ll get in
prison. There is only one option. Let’s go to your place. Am I right, Sonechka? Sonechka
doesn’t want to go to prison. It’s damp and cold there. How are you driving?
How are you driving? Mum, I don’t know. He is
some clown from the institute. – I run him over.
– Look, how were you driving? I don’t know how it
happened, I really don’t. What do you know? You
live without any problems. Your dad has spoilt you. When I was your age I gave birth to you. All right, this is not the best example. Mum, why talk about
this? You better help me. Can’t you see, this is a problem. Why did you bring him here
at all? If he were some mouse, or a kitten, or a puppy… I don’t know. What did I have to do? All right. All right.
I’ll sort it out now. Your name? Lesha. Alexei. Lesha, Alexei, how much? Years? Look. I feel unwell. Let’s
play questions and answers. How much money do you
need to forget this story? – Money has nothing to do with it.
– What does? I need a permanent job…
for at least a year. I may be a guard… or a gardener. A gardener? You’re a gardener now. But let’s forget this story. Is that OK? Thank you very much. You can’t imagine
how good it is to have permanent job. I don’t want to imagine that. Yes? Hello, Zhenya? You may congratulate me. – I’m now working at her place.
– Have you said everything? Yes. Her dad became a leader
of confectionary business. He is breathing in Fishman’s neck now. But there was some huge
scandal with the shares. So don’t count on a stable salary.
Lesha, they are the Aistovs. The Aistovs? Yes. So tell me whether I
should congratulate you or not. – Does your head still hurt?
– What? Does your head still hurt? You know, I don’t want to work anymore. I consulted with my doctor.
We decided that it’s better to write a report. That’s it. Look, sonny. Agreement is
more valuable than money. If you tell anybody about it,
I’ll show you. Is that clear? Perfectly clear. – Give him the money, mum.
– I don’t need your money. He doesn’t need the money.
He is the only person in the world who doesn’t need money. What does he want? What does he want? A
job. He needs a job. We’ll give him a job.
Tomorrow you’ll trim the bushes about the house, gather the
fallen leaves and dig up the earth around the roses. If you are good
and do all the work to the end you’ll have a chance to admire the ball
through the palace window. You’re a poet. – Mum?
– Yes? I’ll be home late.
I have problems. Come on. She has problems. I have problems,
he has problems, everybody has problems. Where is a person who must
sort all these problems out? Many people think that
it’s absolutely impossible to do business honestly.
I have grounds to disagree. Let’s talk on these grounds
after a short advertising break. Stay tuned. Attention, one minute before coming on air. Guys, has Tikhonov come? He failed to come from London. We’re trying to set up
connection through Skype. What’s the matter with
Tikhonov? Can’t he really come? Thank you. Thanks. I can’t
be sure, but we’re trying to get to now. We’re getting to know. Good luck. It’s a pity that Igor
Valentinovitch is absent. I’d ask him a few personal questions. Mr. Aistov, I’d like to
remind you that today’s program is dedicated to charity and
the large businesses’ assistance to our compatriots. I understand everything.
But Mr. Tikhonov’s deeds only help himself. The interests of national confectionary
industry are not one of his priorities, unfortunately. Attention. Ten seconds to coming on air. Respected TV-audience, let me
remind you that we’re on air. We managed to set up
virtual communication with the second guest of
our program. Unfortunately he failed to come to the studio
because of stewardesses’ strike but he will talk to
us right from London. Igor Valentinovitch, good
evening. Do you hear me? I can not only hear but see you well. Good evening, dear audience. Igor Valentinovitch, the scandal
abound the sale of the shares won’t calm down.
In fact, it’s escalating. You can state your position
now taking into account that your war with Aistov’s empire
is the hottest piece of news. I wasn’t the one to start this war. Let’s make a TV-ring.
Aistov versus Tikhonov. With pleasure. But only if you
give me real boxers’ mittens. I’m a large-scale businessman.
I don’t fight with paupers. Let’s start answering our
TV-viewers calls, then. You don’t look too well. Stop it. Lena, I understand that
you have a creative crisis. But you shall brace yourself somehow. You might infect Lina with your depression.
This is a bad example. Is coming home in the
morning and making me solve all the problems here a good example? Yelena, don’t make me laugh.
What problems do you have? Did you nail break?
Or was somebody dressed in the same dress as
you at the fashion show? I think you never talked
like this with your ex. I have a child from her, by
the way. And don’t forget — she is not worse than your children. My children? They are our
children, Aistov. And you owe… I don’t owe you anything, Lena.
You have everything… even more. I came to tell that you our
daughter ran a boy over yesterday. Lena… what are you saying? She ran him over, brought him here
and made me solve this problem. What did you do? I? I hired him as a
gardener to make him shut up. So he is alive, isn’t he? Like Lenin. He is very lively. We don’t need any talks now. Am I right? Dear friends, the evaluation
of the competition works of the students of our institute
will start in a few minutes. Please sit down. Yes? Hello, where are you? Will you come? Katya, don’t worry, I’m
coming. The jams are terrible. Maybe I’ll be a bit late. All right. Then come
right up to the big hall. The main thing is not to worry. Everything will be fine. I kiss you. Having analyzed the works
the competition committee came to the conclusion
that they were done on a high, professional level.
That confirms the quality of preparation of our
institute’s students. As a result, a number of
construction companies got interested in our students’ works. That’s
why the terms of awarding the competitors were changed this year. The authors of three best
projects will have a chance to realize them. I wish I had a magic wand,
a golden fish and a genie in a bottle. It’s all right. I think you’ll win. So… What do you want to say? Nothing. I have nothing
to do with it, Katya. The jury of our competition
chose three best projects. In nomination “Civilian
Construction” Artem Shevchenko won. In the nomination
“Industrial Construction” the winner is… Sergey Lavrov. In the nomination “Landscape
Design” the winner is… Ekaterina Martynova. Say a few words. I named my project “Nadezhda”
in honor of my mother. I hope she’ll be proud of
me. I hope that my project will let the owner of the
house look into the future with hope. Thank you. I don’t understand. The
time of the dinner was known a week before. The guests are practically
on the threshold. What is going on?
Where is Roman? I don’t know. Roman Alexeyevitch
said that he was coming. – Where is Viktor?
– I’m here. Viktor, what is going on? The guests will
arrive in an hour, but nothing is ready. You lost control over
the servants completely. Let me specify, madam —
I’m not a housekeeper, I’m the assistant of
Nicolay Konstantinovitch. The problems of table-laying
are outside of my competence. Is the enormous salary that my husband
pays you within your competence? Viktor, you must either
find Roman or lay the table yourself. All right. Move it, move it. Yelena Vasilyevna, the
dishes are all from seafood. Only Roman Alexeyevitch
knew how to lay it properly. – What is it for?
– I don’t know. – What is this? What is this?
– I don’t know. This is a lobster fork. What? Do you have problems
with laying the table? Yes, we do. Let me do it. It’s
very simple. Here we go. A plate for the main course,
a plate for the desert. A fork and a spoon. A knife
for the dessert… of course. The glasses… for wine and champagne. – How many people are we having?
– Twelve. Twelve. For the escargot.
And this is for the sauce. The last stroke. Here we go. Wow. Did you work in a restaurant before? You may say so. Alexei, I have a question…
do you know the wines too? – Show them to me.
– Are you serious? Of course I am. Why not? Let’s go. Repeat his actions
and lay the entire table. – Move it, move it.
– Did you remember everything? Bye. Flowers Belka. Well…Belka?
Where are you? I’m here. I’m coming. Well? How did it go? Well… I didn’t expect it myself.
I got a great job. A real construction company
will finance my project. It’s all written here. My congratulations. Now
you’ll leave our shop for sure. No. I’ll only work on vacations.
The building is not even ready yet. I envy you, Katya. I told you to enter
the institute, didn’t I? I wish I could marry.
I want to marry an oligarch. Or a small, bald, dumb
and deaf sea captain. How will you study now? I’ll study when I’m
free from grass-mowing. I have great prospects,
though. I’ll become a courier… like now, when I have to get
flowers for the dinner table. Don’t overwork. It’s very good to be a courier, Zhenya. They send you wherever
they want, and you go without thinking about
anything. It’s cool. We need to talk. Good morning to you,
daughter. How did you sleep? Dad, I have no time. I’m
late for the institute. How are your studies, by the way?
Have you gotten used to it? Dad, what did you take
me from London for? Local guys are all fools. I want you to study and to work
here, in your native country. Me? Work? Dad, are you
affairs really that bad? Is that what you wanted
to talk to me about? Dad, I want to go back
to London. Immediately. Lina, I need to answer
a call, don’t you see? You never have time for mum and me. I’ll call you back. Lina, I heard
you. I called your institute. They said that you study as
badly as you did in England. Therefore I decided to
throw you a life-buoy. Thank you. Will you talk to the dean? No. I blocked your credit card. Nothing stimulates business
activity better than lack of money. Go, otherwise you’ll be late. A man, a Muscovite, 34 years
old, dark hair, hazel eyes, who has neither debts,
nor alimony nor loans is looking for a beautiful,
charismatic and… thin girl. How can one tolerate it?
What do plump girls do? Look, this one is for
you. A lonely old man doesn’t smoke, doesn’t
drink and sleeps on his side. I’ll bite you. Look, Lesha, I’m sorry but..
your Angelina seems to be a no-gooder who lives
at her father’s expense. You are jealous. Oh, stop it. I like a
different kind of girls. A bit cleverer, a bit more
beautiful, a bit older and… I remember. I remember your “and”. Stop it. Will you be reminding me
of that to the end of my life? How can one marry? Who is writing these
announcements, Katya? What is YSNGP? Hello. YSNG means a Young, Shy, Nice
Guy. He is right before you. Is that you? No, of course not. It’s
him. Look attentively. He is a young male, a brutal Casanova.
Catch him and hold him right now. Well, I don’t know… What is there to wait for?
You shall act here and now, for tomorrow may never come. By the way, he doesn’t like thin girls. – Is that true?
– Present yourself. He is Yevgeniy. Yevgeniy. Nice to meet you. Belka. Yevgeniy is a student.
Show your record book. Zhenya, be careful. I can see well, thank you. Cool. The Institute of
International Relations. Can I help you? I’m afraid we won’t
be able to help here. Yevgeniy is an old bachelor
who knows no words of love. They have found each other. Stop fooling around. What do you want? I want to find love to the rest of my life.
I came to get a great bouquet. Then let’s go there. Come in. I have 35 bouquets,
two boxes of Dutch roses and two boxes of greenery. If
you want some exclusive flowers we may call the Netherlands and
they’ll contact the suppliers. No. I need the flowers here and
now. And you’re dragging it out. Yes, I am. They need
time to get acquainted. It’s very hard to find
a decent guy nowadays. Girl, you’re flirting with
me. Let’s get acquainted first. My name is Alexei. Simply Lesha for you. My name is Ekaterina. Simply Kath for you. Katya. I think all my
previous life was in vain. I see. To tell you the
truth, your bouquet is there. Belka is Bella. My granny
called me so in honor of her great-grandmother. But
I don’t like the name “Bella”. It’s too official. Bella. Belka is more lively, isn’t it? My name is Yevgeniy, by the way. I know. Girl, I tell you for the hundredth time —
I need to unblock my credit card. The only person who may… This situation is not standard, lady. Lena’s dinners are always so rich.
What a pity that I’m on a diet. Everybody is on a
diet here, dear ladies. Those who want to eat and not gain weight
should place a diamond in the mouth. – It satisfies hunger.
– How interesting. I also advise you to grind half
a gram of gold into a powder, add it to a pinch of flour and swallow. Gold will be dissolving in
your stomach for two months cleansing it. You’ll
shine from within, ladies. Look, how do you like this guy? You know, the dinner
wouldn’t happen but for him. How can he be so good
at both choosing wines and working in the garden? Aistov, you’re so suspicious.
Maybe he is universal. It can’t be. Alexei, I’m sorry. Where
is your daughter Angelina? The only person who may
unblock the transfer operations on your card is Nicolay
Konstantinovitch Aistov, therefore… Very well, daddy. – Let’s drink for the hosts.
– For the hosts of this house. Do you give out free advice? Maybe you will give me
some. I need one terribly. Buy an opal. Opal is a stone of passion. It kindles the inner light. Maybe you’ll give it to me
as a present? I have no money. I will when I become the senior gardener. From this moment on
this is a dance evening. I beg your pardon. Caught. Bravo. – Alexei, see to the children.
– As you say, Yelena Vasylyevna. Hi, guys. – Are you having fun?
– We are. I see. I can see
you’re having great fun. I thought children are never
bored, especially if there are lots of them together. Am I
wrong? Shall we play something? What? Hide and seek, for example. Are you children or not? Who are you? A maid? Get out of here. Who is it? Whose friend is
he? Listen to me attentively and pay notice.
The one who says anything will get a control shot
into the head. Do you get it? I got to know where real
treasures are hidden in this house. The one who finds them first can take it. Therefore learn the hints, read
attentively and go in search of the treasures. Do you get it? Aren’t you joking? Is that for real? I’d like to see your
father. “Aren’t you joking? Is that for real, bro”? Is the treasure somewhere here? Yes, in this house. I love
your I-pods and I-pads. I’ll have to take them away
to make the game honest. And the main thing, my friends… You only have thirty
minutes. Let’s start. Why so little? Am I limited
in time in my own house? Will the girls get the head start? No, the girls won’t get the head start. The rules are honest and even. This is a joke. I can feel it. All right. As you wish. One, two… Look, they are playing all together. Don’t do it. High spirits is the main treasure. We shall live in the present, shan’t we? Mum, can we stay a bit longer? No. It’s too late, we must go home. Just a bit. Lena, loan us your
baby-sitter for a week-end. Look what Alexei has done with them. I’m seeing that for the first time. I can’t take them away
from the computer, and now… It was a real children’s holiday. This is absolutely
impossible. I’ve been waiting for him myself and
hired him for huge money. Really? Yes. He is universal. You’re very lucky. Good bye. Bye. Please… He will marry me. Did he say so? Of course he didn’t.
What man can say that? Men are extremely indecisive. But Yevgeniy thought so,
and I knew it at once. Aren’t you hurrying the events up? If you don’t hurry them
up you might be late. And stay alone for
the rest of your days. Yes? Nicolay Konstantinovitch,
did you call for me? Yes, Alexei. Come in.
What is your surname? Agafonov. Right. Something doesn’t add up. – What do you mean?
– I made inquiries about you. You’re the best student of your year. Yes, I study well. Very good. What can you say about
the market volatility? In what sector shall one buy shares? Traders use volatility to evaluate
changes on a concrete date. Name the date, and I’ll
give you an exact answer. What companies are you interested
in? Raw materials or energy? One shall get as much information
as possible before buying anything. – The best info comes from inside.
– Do you mean criminal information? This question is
philosophical. Some call it “corporate espionage”. Some use
a heroic word “reconnaissance”. And you’re working as
a gardener, aren’t you? This is for the start. I plan to make a
breathtaking career with you. You’re an interesting guy. Don’t
you want to tell me the truth? I don’t. What for? But I know one thing
for sure — I need money. Angelina recommended you, didn’t she? She had convincing recommendations. My wife likes you. You’re great with kids,
although all nannies run from them. I have an offer to you. Will you be our housekeeper?
This position is vacant. I don’t want to hire a person from outside. I’m from outside too. If you don’t cope I’ll fire you. You have five minutes
for thinking it over. I agree. Guys. Look, who sells diploma
works in our year? What do you mean? Do you need a “C”? I need an “A”. Only Leshka Agafonov.
The one whom you ran over. He is going to get a red diploma. But he doesn’t sell works. We’ll see. So? Lena, you should start doing something. May you will care for
the kids? Nanny left, a director of their school
called me and complained. She says they are playing truant. I’m not a nanny. I’m an actress. You know that they didn’t
give me the main part. Whom will they shoot? Eleonora Polonskaya. She has talents. She shakes them in the
frame… shaking the sand off. She is not that old, is she? Are you saying that to me on purpose? Think about one more thing —
where to move from here. If Tikhonov presses on me,
I won’t be able to pay for this house. Look, let’s celebrate your
birthday in a family circle. I don’t want to see all those faces. Stop it, wife. Stop it. No,
the dinner shall be grandioso… I want people to remember
it. Do you understand? I want them to see that the
Aistovs are still flying high and no one can bring them down. Grandioso… even if this dinner is the last. – Yes?
– Lesha, this is me. Angel? Nice to hear you. You may call me so if you want
to. When shall I come to get you? To get me where? Where you tell me. Or…
did you change your mind about inviting me to the club? Look, let’s meet in the evening.
Your mum asked me to do something. Can you imagine? I got a call from a
shooting crew. They offered me an episode. An episode, a part of a
maid of the main heroine. I don’t know what to do. If I
refuse they won’t call me again. If I agree they’ll say
that I fell too low. Did you agree? Are you mad? Do you see me in tan episode? They say there are no small parts. Only those who never
had a main part say that. Do you know how many main
parts I had? Look here. The guys at the TV-studio made
this for me. Do you like it? Sure. Is that you? And you too? Aistov doesn’t believe in me. Yelena Vasilyevna, can you send
these materials to my e-mail? Just in case. I’ll look
them through when I’m home. I didn’t like you at the beginning.
I thought that you were a dowry hunter. Yelena Vasilyevna, do you
want to hear the truth? I am indeed a dowry hunter.
I hunt for your daughter. And you’re assisting me in that. I knew at once that you
have a good sense of humor. You know, I can feel
that you understand me. Let’s stop here. Park the car. People from the theatre think
that the more vulgar the better. Is that right? We shall
bring the audience up. People watch absolute
trash. And the cinema. The cinema is… The actors
shall search for themselves. I’ve found myself. You
see, I’ve found myself. Oh, how great. It’s time to go shopping. – Hi to everybody.
– Here are the clothes. Hello. Calm down. – What is this?
– I beg your pardon. What kind of pornography is this? This is the last collection. Girl, this is the last
collection of pornography. Where can one wear this? I know. I’ll go to the theatre in this. Yes. The theatre. Do you love the
theatre as much as I love it? – Stop it, Lena.
– Shall I stop? Of course. We’ll take this. We don’t have clothes for the theatre. – We’re buying.
– Yes. – Yelena Vasilyevna? We shall go.
– What? – Where to?
– There. – There.
– Pack the clothes, please. In a packet with holes. The reeds are rustling… Be quiet, please. Lesha. I’ve forgotten
my fur coat in the car. This is not important. The main thing is
to keep the reeds from rustling. Where is everybody? Where are they? Be careful. A step. Another
step. Be very quiet now. Forget the details. Be quiet. I beg you to be
quiet, Yelena Vasilyevna. I feel unwell, Lesha. I feel unwell. Everybody is not too well nowadays. The reeds were rustling,
the trees were bending, the night was dark. Right. I feel so bad, Lesha. You
know what I wanted to tell you? Aistov is slipping away from me. Sleep, Yelena Vasylievna. I look at him and
wonder — who is that man? Stop it, Yelena Vasylyevna.
Aistov is a good man. He is good, isn’t he? He is. And my small children…
they are already pupils. Your children are great. Yes, the children. And my daughter. She is so big. My daughter. Angelina is great. I know. Sleep, Lesha. Sleep. Yes, I’m going to sleep. I’ll repeat one more time —
these papers don’t exist. Stop panicking. If Tikhonov had them
he would have done away with us long ago. Yes, of course, Victor — my
right hand and left too. He is informed of all operations. Without it, I’m dead.
Well, what do you think? I came to you at dawn to say
that the sun has risen. Hi. I’m very pleased… especially
taking into account that it is evening. Look, I have a feeling that I’ve known you
for about ten years. Have we met before? No, we haven’t. Are you studying? I’m trying to. Job takes much of my time. What about Belka? I let her go. There she is. Wow. A pupil excelled
his teacher. It’s great. Their lips will get dry, though. I kissed for the first
time only at the third date. What did you want? Oh, yes. Where do we study? I don’t know about you. I study in the Institute of Architecture.
I want to become a landscape designer. The software is too weak. You
shall add some more memory… Well… You’re a future landscape
designer. Very well. When I start building
my palace I’ll call you. I hope you won’t start
this week. I have seminars. I like chatting with you. But
I need a bouquet. It should be… Not standard and with love. Exactly. In a moment. Here you go. On the language of flowers
it means: “Honey, I’m happy”. Does your beloved understand
the language of flowers? I doubt it. But I’m sure
that I can teach her. All right. I’ll bring you the change. No, no. Take this. This is for you. This is a fiance’s bouquet. Very good. It means you’ll get married soon. I can’t see your
hands. I can’t hear you. I’ve never been here.
Do you like this place? Look how cool he is. Yes, he is cool. Do you have a lighter? I don’t smoke. Cool. Let’s dance. Shall we go to some other place? Sit here alone, then.
I’ll have fun on my own. Girl. Girl, what’s the
matter? I love you too. I love this girl. Stop it. Let go of me. She is so passionate. Damn it. What are you doing?
Look where you’re going. Take your hands away. You’re drunk. Who is drunk? Am I drunk? Yes, I’m drunk. But I’m not as drunk as you. Let me drive. We’re both drunk. We can’t
drive in such a state. If the police stop us we’ll have problems. Let them stop. If the policemen come I’ll make a police turn. Watch me. Lesha, hi. Hello. You shall work less. I’m tired
of lying about where you are. Did you read the last “Forbes”? No. I’ll buy it now. Why? Look up the letter A. Is
Agafonov Alexei in the list? Shall I start laughing now? I’m not joking, Zheny.
I need there very much. You could come with a placard — “We slept”. I think what happened between
us yesterday is not that vulgar. By the way, I forgot to
tell you that your father appointed me the housekeeper. Take this. Congratulations. You’re
making career fast. Take the flowers away, fool.
I don’t want the entire institute to wonder where I get
good diploma works. Angelina, I just wanted… I told you to hide them.
Or better throw them away. Get off me. We better talk at home. Lesha, give this to Belka. Zhenya, you’re luckier than me now. Everything is clear in your life. I talked to your lawyer,
Nicolay Konstantinovitch. Tikhonov refused all our
offers. He is going to sue you. He has found the documents. Vitya, what documents? It
happened a hundred years ago. A hundred years ago?
All right. Here are the copies. By the way, I got them risking my life. Wait. My lawyer said that
they don’t exist anymore. Why do you still trust him? He felt that you’re going
to lose and… I’m very sorry. You’re sorry, aren’t you?
Why did you keep silence about the documents? Do you
understand that this is the end? I’ll have to fire all of you. Nicolay Konstantinovitch, do you know
what a farewell bird dance looks like? What? It looks like this. Like this. Like this. Vitya, are you all right? I’m perfectly all right.
I say goodbye to you. Tikhonov offered me a job…
and an adequate salary. So thank you for all these years. – Get out of here.
– With pleasure. Get out. And don’t you shout on me. Don’t think about anything. It
was a normal working situation. I don’t think at my working place.
I do enough of thinking at the institute. My birthday is approaching.
I’ll compose the list of guests. Do you know who’ll be the first in it? No. Tikhonov. Of course he won’t come. But I want him to know
that I’m not afraid of him. I have an urgent task for you. Do you know
a flower boutique in the Sadovaya Street? Of course. We buy flowers there. Go to the car salon in the
Pushkinskaya Street. Look. Look here. Take the car and
drive it to the flower shop. And… Lesha, I don’t want anybody
to know about this task. Yes, of course. This is all. Yes, mum. OK. Bye. Oh, you’re eating. Lesha cooked for us. How great. Mum, if Lesha is so great
let him stay with us for good. What do you mean — for good? Everybody will feel better then. You, dad and Angelina. And we too. Right. I’ll think about it. Hello? What director? Yes. Yes, I’m listening. The cookies are very good.
I have never tasted such cookies. I like them too. My dad
got them as a present. Who is he? How do I say… Don’t tell me if you don’t want to. I believe that one determines
who one is on one’s own, not through his parents. Do you really think so? Yes. Parents are a good foundation. But one shall build
the house on his own. Describe your home for me. I don’t know. My mum and I
were always renting flats. Therefore I don’t know how
it feels like to own a house. Try to imagine it. Close your
eyes and try to imagine your house. I’ll try. Try, try it. In a moment. It’s not big,
one-storied and very light. There are few walls
inside, there is much light. There is a garden in front of it. There are beautiful flowers there,
and paths with small pebbles… white pebbles. One may
walk on them barefooted. The ocean is behind the
house. What are you doing? The ocean. Your phone is ringing. Hello? Hi. Listen to me. Look out of the
window. I have a surprise for you. In a moment. Is that for me? I’m scared when you’re driving
your old ruin along our roads. Do you like it? Stop it. I know that you have
problems now. What will Yelena say? I congratulate you on your
victory in the competition. This is the best present in my life. Don’t get hurt, but I can’t take it. Why? You know that I must
achieve everything on my own. – I kiss you.
– Bye. May I ask you something? You’re scaring me. I saw the photo of the
man who sent you this car. And? This is none of my business, of course. But I just wanted to know…
why didn’t you take the car? You wanted to ask
something else, didn’t you? All right. Who is that man to you? Are you ready to tell me
who Angelina is to you? Wow. I’m sorry. Do you want to get to know all
my secrets? Isn’t that too early? I understand. I’m sorry. Were the cookies tasty? – Lesha?
– Yes? Can you help me move the
flowerpot? I won’t cope on my own. Do we have some more tea? Can you imagine, it was when
the Dow Jones index fell. And what happened next? Next… it rose. I’m writing poems. Really? Do you want to hear some? – No.
– No? I didn’t know that flower
business was that hard. But it is. I can see that you’re
not overworking at home. Angelina, please meet Katya.
Katya, this is Angelina. Why do you think that I’m interested? Why not? Maybe you’ll
need flowers one day. So he lacks money to pay for
my studies but he buys you cars. I didn’t ask him. Ask him. Ask. He is ready
for anything for your sake… even at the expense of his own family. Why are you standing? Let’s go. I don’t understand anything. Yevgeniy is so cool. He is so
clever. He is studying Spanish. – He is so cool. You can’t imagine.
– I can. What is wrong with your mood? Did Alesha leave with somebody else?
Whose car is there by the entrance? Let’s work, shall we? Al right. Why are you keeping silence? Why did you behave like that with her? I’m sorry, honey. One can’t
communicate with such people in any other manner. They
should know their place. Do you know your place? Yes. And I feel great there. I take everything that I want from life. I want to go to the club at
the moment, and I’m going there. What kind of music do you like? Beethoven. “The Fate
Theme”. Have you heard of it? – Are you joking?
– I am. I never joke. Only weak
people hide behind the jokes. Do you think you’re strong? Look at me. I can do anything in this life. I think so. Thank you, girls. Thank you.
It was Glam and his show-ballet “The Sexy Tigers”. Come to our
concerts. Is that you again? I’m sick and tired of you.
Look, that guy is handsome. Dance with him. Get off. You like cool guys, don’t you? Who are you to control me? You’re
nobody. You’re our Cinderella. I sent the diploma work to your
e-mail. I did as I promised. When you need the next one
you know where to find me. What did you need that for? What are you doing here? What a pair. Uma Turman and James Bond. Are you leaving? Yes, I have problems in
the institute. I must go. Why are you lying? I’m lying, aren’t I?
Does it look like I’m lying? Each person uses up to five
per cent of lies in this speech. This is what you’re doing
now. You don’t even notice it. Everybody lies. That’s why
people forgive others for lying. Only children tell the truth. And they get punished for that. When children get older they
start lying too. Like the adults. What are you reading
me this lecture for? It’s because you’re lying to
yourself. This is the worst case. Just realize what you really want. Everything is so confused. Sort it out. Ask direct questions. If a person tells you the
truth you can trust him. If he lies hit him in the eye. What a fool. The autumn has come,
the flowers withered. I don’t need anybody except for you… Don’t take the roses; the
client host doesn’t like them. How do you know? Don’t tell me, I understand.
We’re adult people. Aistov is my father. Of course he is. And
I’m your twin sister. Stop it. Is that true? So your dad is a millionaire,
he is eating sweets by boxes, and you’re making bouquets
at nights. It can’t be. It can, as you see. Why are you so sad? I am not. I’m just thinking about
whether to go to his jubilee. Of course you shall go.
What is there to think about? I’ll call my friend.
She works in a boutique. We’ll find the best dress for you. Big earrings, high
heels… you’ll be the best. What for? What do you mean — what
for? For him to see. For everybody to see
that you’re all right. March forwards. I’ll finish
these bouquets myself. I remember that he doesn’t like roses. Good morning. Happy
birthday. Congratulations. Thanks. Thank you. You’re spoiling me. Do you like it? I do. Why did you get up so early? A director called me
and offered a main part in a movie based on
Joyce. It’ll be a bomb. You see. My congratulations.
I believe in you. My agent is Alexei Agafonov.
He convinced the director to give me the main part.
I don’t know how he did it. This is a letter from him. Read it. “Thank you for everything.
It was nice to work for you. But now… in connection with… refuse to…” – I didn’t understand. Did he leave?
– I think so. We shall do something.
We won’t cope without him. Do you think it’s
strange that we can’t cope without our gardener who only
worked for us for a few days? Don’t you think it’s
strange that you hired him as a housekeeper? Did you forget? I did. Good afternoon. Please sit down. For those
who might be interested… Lesha, you can’t
imagine how cool she is. She has cards with actors
starting from the 30-ies. Is she a Duncan McLoud?
Will she live forever? Her granny started the collection. How is Aistova, by the
way? Did you quarrel? One may say so. The love
was without gladness, so the separation will
be without sadness. I don’t work for them anymore. Yes? I’m listening. Hello, housekeeper. I read your letter. Hello, Nicolay Konstantinovitch.
Yes, I’m leaving. – Are you running?
– No, it’s not the case. I haven’t drowned yet. I do it for personal reasons. I never thought that I’ll
ask anybody about anything. But I ask you to stay.
For personal reasons. I need to concentrate on my fight
for the company and not on the house. Since you arrived everything
came to normal. Lena… Yelena
Vasilyevna is reading Joyce. Masha and Vanya adore you.
Their friends call them all the time. People offer me money
for you. Can you imagine? Their children drive
them crazy because of you. So… help me, Lesha. You see, Nicolay Konstantinovitch, I came to work in your house
not because of the money. I guessed it at once.
I saw you dancing with Linka. May I ask you a direct
question? Like a real man? All right, do it. What relations do you have with Katya? Good. Normal. Ordinary relations. What relations can there be
between a father and a daughter? What do you mean — a daughter? Yes. Katya is my daughter
from my first marriage. She lives separately and
has her other’s surname. Wait, why did you ask? I think I’m in love with Katya. It might be none of my
business. But sort it out first. Do you think you’re in love
or do you think you’re in love with Katya? What about Angelina? I don’t know about Angelina.
I don’t know anything now. I need to sort it out. Let’s do it this way. You’ll
help me celebrate the jubilee and then you’ll sort it
out as long as you need. Is it a deal? You can tell me all about
it. I’ll keep it secret. They say that Aistov is a bankrupt. His affairs are going from bad to worse. What are you saying, Diana? They say that his assistant
Viktor left him for Tikhonov. Can you imagine? Zhenya, Belka. What are you doing here? Katya invited us. So
you’re working, aren’t you? Don’t envy. There are better places. Belka, do you remember the YSNGP? Yes. Young, Shy, Nice, Perspective. – The key word here is Perspective.
– Right. – Katya.
– Hi. Hello. Thank you. Thank you. Hi. Hello. Hi, Happy birthday. I
made it for you myself. Thank you. On the language of flowers it
means “I love you, I kiss you, I’m grateful for everything, Your Katya”. Thank you. I hope this time you’ll stay
till the end of the evening? Sure. Otherwise why would I dress up? Is it OK? Do you like it? Honestly? Alexei? What shall we do? The
director is calling all the time. Where will we take the money? Yelena Vasilyevna, wait. It’s
not the end of the evening yet. It is evening. Lesha,
look out of the window. It is already evening. Have patience. You’ll
understand everything soon. My friends, can I have
your attention please? I’m glad to see you at my birthday party. This age is considered to be
the one to make some conclusions, and to look back. I think I achieved a lot. I developed my capital, I increased
the capacity of my industry, I was working on
organizational problems. Unfortunately I often
lacked time for my wife, my kids and for myself. But
I’m looking forward with hope. I still have where to move
I want to say that I consider my children to be my
greatest achievement in life. And now I’d like to invite
my eldest daughter to dance. She has dressed up. A daughter. I was wondering why you’re
friends with that saleswoman. You’re cunning. You
started to court both of us. You knew, didn’t you?
Tell me that you knew. I didn’t. She has a different surname. She has her mother’s
surname. She is so proud. She wants to achieve everything on her own. So she is selling flowers. I think she dances very well. Hello, Igor. I congratulate you, Nicolay. Please meet my eldest
daughter Katya. My heiress. She is Nadezhda’s daughter,
isn’t she? She took after her. She is so adult. A real fiance.
I’m here with my son too. Lesha? Where are you? – Lesha, what’s the matter?
– Get off me. – Lesha, your dad is here.
– Take your hands way. Lesha, come here. Hold this. Here you go. Dad, I asked you not to do
it in everybody’s presence. Are you surprised? You’ve always been a master of surprises. I was shocked myself when I got to know that my son was working for
you. And he was doing well. He decided to help me
ruin Aistov’s company. He is the one who arranged
your assistant’s leave and the search for the documents. What did you come for? Did you bring the customs
office representatives? No. He grounded… …economic benefits that will arise
from merger of the two companies. I don’t get it. I don’t get it myself yet. But it’s beneficial for
both of us, isn’t it? It is, without any doubt. Do you see? According to
his variant of the merger each of us keeps his status and money. I was thinking about how to
swallow you and earn more money. And he worked out a way not
to swallow you and to earn even more. Twice as much. Will you show us your calculations? Let’s not do it here and now. Later. All right, let it be
later. And one more thing. This is my birthday present for you. Thank you. These are the papers that you lost. Thank you. Will I get something to drink
in this house? Otherwise I’ll leave. It’s your turn now, Yevgeniy. Lesha, I don’t understand.
What is going on? Yelena Vasilyevna, everything is clear. If we make two companies
merge into one concern, Aistov will be happy to give
you the money for the movie. It’s clear, isn’t it? Dance, dance. Katya. I didn’t understand.
Did he say that you came to my father’s house using
Angelina to spy for your dad to make my father a bankrupt? To tell you the truth… yes, I did. So you’re a bastard, aren’t you? I was helping my father.
I think you’d do the same if you were in my shoes.
Besides I didn’t know that you’re Aistov’s daughter. So you may either forgive me or hate me. Forgive me. Shall we get acquainted again? – Alexei.
– Ekaterina. Nice to meet you. Here we go. Sonechka. Shall we get acquitted again? What is my dog doing here? You left me too, didn’t you, Sonya? Agafonov, you have your
mother’s surname too. You did well. Tell me
what to do to be as happy as you are. My father appointed her his heiress. I’m sorry; I don’t want to talk to you. Why not? Did you decide to offer
Katya to marry you one-in-one? This is none of your business. Will you tell my dear sister
how we fucked in my car? Do you want me to tell that
to her myself? In details. She doesn’t know about that, does she? Katya. What do you need her for? I’m afraid you won’t understand. Katya. Wait. I love you, do you hear? Lesha? Oh, my God. Lesha. Lesha, what’s
wrong with you? Lesha? What? Where am I? What has happened? You’re scaring me. What is going on? Who are these people? They are… relatives. Relatives? I don’t remember
so many. Are they all mine? Do you remember me? You? I remember you very well. I’m married with the most
beautiful girl in the world. She works in a flower
boutique. We have three children and a small dog. We live
in a small light house on the ocean shore. The
flowers grow all around it, and the paths are covered
with white pebbles. And the ocean. Beautiful dreams. Marry me. Yes, I will. They are great for each other.
