M”WI• PO ANGIELSKU M”WI PO ANGIELSKU As mayor Giuliani used to say Itís zero tolerance Iíll repeat once again, zero tolerance for criminals, If we allow teenagers to break car windows or to steal slices of pizza We can be sure that the next time theyíll try their luck at something bigger We are seeing you No crime is too small to go unpunished The perpetrators of minor crimes may not feel impunity Everything starts from small or offenses street fighting Always authorities pretend that they can not see anything M”WI PO FRANCUSKU Do you know how to get The Palace of Culture ? The Palace of Culture. Straight down Pu≥awska and then take a left KLAKSON Thanks How long have you been working in the police? åMIECH Next question And have you heard of the low harm-effect of the crime? No, never. Every crime harms and thatís why itís a crime Yes, but the prosecutor and the courts in Poland release two out of every three
criminals caught because of the low social consequence of the crime – I donít understand it – Neither do we The law in Poland protects the criminals and not their victims Well, your law is terrible, and you should change it Weíre policemen and not politicians Well, carry out your duty to the utmost and let the politicians play their part Because what they do? Good question I donít know where it bloody well is – No problem – Whereís the car? – Donít know, I didnít see it Kruszon, go to the general, and have him give us a car, his preferably Why bother the general I see youíve had your car nicked. Would you like a lift? Weíll find another one Arenít you ashamed to be driving around the capital city in a Nysa? They stole our car, in front of the police station URUCHOMI£ SILNIK Donít turn on the engine, just in case Hi, Patryk – Whatíll you need it for? – Sure itíll come in handy My gran used to say that all things come in handy eventually Patryk? I just took the umbrella No, not that check one, the folding one Log in, log in. Here we go Weíve got a link to the satellite Weíll find the car soon enough I donít think itís gone further than fifty miles from here O, Kondeja. You skipped training? As you see, I know Russian and not English Kondeja? Are you captain Kondeja? – Not captain, inspector Kondeja, the leader of the special pursuit squad – Right, youíre the new one, I suppose Youíre the one that dolly-bird from Mostowska forced on us? Yes, Kruszon, from detective Aldona GieÒko The training courses are for you
Youíll have to learn this and that Without me, youíre like blind kittens You had your car stolen from right under your noses – Itís by the Vistula – Letís go Wacek, check it. From top to bottom Breaks, engine, everything Kid, you come with me – Your name is Tomasz KruszyÒski? – Does that name ring a bell? – Donít be too smart. Calling him by his first name, thatíll freak him out Do you want me to check out this paper? I see you want to Topor, how long have we known each other, eh? – A long time, chief 12 April 1976, I arrested you in front of the Eurpoejski hotel You`re trying to sell two Swedes dodgy currency Old news, detective Youíve handed me Pershing, Gico≥a, Malizna, even Wπt≥usz on a plate Diabel, Czach, Naleúnik… I wouldnít bother my brains with them all But why speak so loud about it, eh? Let the young learn about the history of their country – I, nothing – Thatís the deal From time to time you serve us up one of your friends and we turn a blind eye to your agency, or your vodka transports, or your green houses – Detective, you know that I know – Exactly, I was sure of it The deal has become a bit of a bore We no longer want to cooperate with you The guys whom youíve shopped are going to find out all about you All your whores are going to take our bus east Silk? Isnít it a shame to wear that around the house Pimping, smuggling, organized crime, drugs trafficking, criminal terror You, Cypa, your son, Patryk, all your family and friends A beautiful trial, you smiling for TV Detective, I really donít know whatís going on here Have you seen that crook, or not? – He doesnít understand – Tell him – A stolen police car? Youíve 48 hours to find that git Guys, Iím not God himself Thereís a stolen car standing in your parking space Youíd better find it 47 hours and 59 minutes Good hunting None of Toporís crowd would be stupid enough to steal a car with a GPS system Anyhow, heíd never leave it in front of his own restaurant You two are all right, but you Kruszon, have still a lot to learn Carry on, sonny, donít trouble your head I think that whoeverís done this is someone who isnít afraid of either the police or the mafia
Someoneís trying to show that he means business A model policeman, what a precise analysis Do you really think that we thought Topor had stolen the car? Well, seeing as you know everything Iím not asking about what I know, Where did you get it? Was he in the dump and you took pity on him? Told you, heís from the capital, from chief Aldona Ginko – At what is he the best at? – I donít know. Go and ask him He shoots worse than you, he answers back even when heís not asked Now you can learn a bit of police work, lad, look and learn I look, I learn, and then I think. Thatís what youíre all going to have to get used to it Take him to the post office and send him back to chief Ginko as return post Let her adore him more. Ginko, youíve got a problem with your memory Now, the combatant is right, Iíd prefer to be a PC plod than in this special pursuit group You loosers, no one would nick a pen from us lot, never mind a car Enough, put that pistol away before you do yourself or somebody an injury so you can practice on that – Youíre staying, weíre going – Youíre not going to check it out? No. And thatís an order How did those wheels wind up in my parking space? Cypa, did you see who put it there? – I was in the jacks And you, Patryk? Did you notice anything, son, eh? Nothing, Dad And you Junior also saw nothing I suppose, eh? I was upstairs with the girls – What am I paying you for, you shit? – Topor! Guests – Your name is Tomasz KruszyÒski – No change Are you the son of…? Yes, I am the son of Zbigniew KruszyÒski Solidarity activist, whom you were looking for 4 years – 3 years, 5 months and 12 days How strange it is that in a free Poland youíre still working for the police Perhaps it is strange. When we were turning your house over, you tried to assault me – You were just a kid – How moving, do you want me to cry? I was carrying out my orders. I thought it was for the good of Poland Letís get back to the present time, shall we? – So do you still have a problem? – Yes Do you think a new power is on the rise? – A new mafia? Thatís what I think Theyíre more intelligent, better trained, and more ruthless than Toporís people And how do you know about all this? – Gdyby byIi s≥absi Cosí if they were weaker, theyíd want to hook up with him Theyíre strong, they want to take him out and call all the shots Youíre arrogant, but you do think Only donít overdo things on that score
– Iíll give you a chance. The last one – Iíll give you a chance too Also the last chance You can call me Joachim Achim, if you like Really Darek! Darek, hereís the coffee Hold on, dad, I have to talk Yes, Mum, Iíll buy the potatoes I canít talk now, Iím in a meeting – Hi, Dahomek – Hi Grand. Hi Juby – It was nice of you to find time for us – Grand, you were my leader, you pulled me out of the fire You donít forget such things, do you? And as usual, weíre here to see you on business I wanted to exchange this in a bank, and I was within a whisker of being arrested Give it to your lady and have her check why Iím building a house, Grand. Iím getting married, and soon Iím going to be a father Please, Dahomek. Surely you wonít refuse your brothers a small favor? Oh, loosen up. Youíre far too tense – Youíre marrying your Øabka, or not? – Not Pay her as much as you want, and you can keep the rest Theyíre real As you know the Polish currency canít be faked A beautiful house – Piss off, chum. Youíre doped – But the folks are inside Are you twisted, chum? You want to have me stuffed? You, where did they get our pass from? Theyíre my brothers, cousins Hi Patryk. You need a leak? – Come here, weíll hold it for you – So you wouldnít spray yourself You also have everything for free, eh? Grand, this is life Everythingís for free, all you have to be is the son of the mafioso, eh? Come on, Patryk, letís talk Great! What gives, Patryk Iíve received money from you
– You took it yourself – Donít answer me back And the money, you forgot to tell me that itís slightly counterfeit – You never asked – I told you to watch your tongue – Iím sorry – Beside Have you got more of the goods? – Of those counterfeit Euros – This is all bloddy girlsí loo – Police. Please donít disturb us, please Please Iíll hold Who gave you the hot stuff? Topor? You shouldnít have left those wheels in our parking space. The cops were not impressed I thought we were friends So where did he get the readies from? Iím going to send my dad after you You donít even know who I am You donít know how many of us there are You tell your father and Iíll kill you Who are you guys, a private army of supermen, or what? Now weíre going to be partners, Patryk Weíre going to dictate our terms. You and us your dad is about to retire So are you in or do I have to kill you? This is the paper from a real banknote, and this is what I got from you – Do you see? – Yeah, I see – A fairly handy number, eh? – Fairly handy, yeah. I see that you havenít a clue what Iím talking about – No – In all EU countries itís been settled that all banknotes are to be printed on the same paper A reserve of banknote paper has been left over however, very similar to the one on which the Euro is made – And what about it? – And this is the paper Thereís hardly any difference at all Kondeja. I have to tell you something I didnít live with my father. By the time he found out, heíd already had a new family – I didnít know It wasnít me who knocked you about during the search.My step-brother was three years old, Heís standing in the summer house, you can give it back to him now Your brother works for Topor Perhaps he could be put to some use? Unfortunately, he believes his superiors He thinks that they want the best for Poland Very funny First weíll get the car.And then weíll sort out the counterfeit stash Iíd go after the family.Patrykís mother has been dead these past ten years, and Topor hasnít married again Thatís something we can start with Apparently your son is heading off to college Let him work hard Europe needs its elite And perhaps youíd like something to eat, or drink? Youíre changing the subject None of my lot had anything to do with your car Iím not asking you who didnít do it it, just spit it out who did – Yes, we had a gentlemanís agreement – But I donít know yet We donít need you any more, get it? You donít control the city, weíre going to close you down The third one, do you remember?
Itís simply appalling for a policeman to go through a desk. Without a search warrant And the counterfeit stash Why didnít you report it? – What stash? – Counterfeit Euros Patryk goes off to college and weíll send Interpol the evidence that heís a resident with the Saratovsky mafia Heíll be finished Stay away from my son! He hasnít done anything to you All youíve set aside will do for the next five generations And Patryk could really have a different life to yours Just think what his mother would have wanted. God rest her soul Tell us Topor, where did you get that money? Tell us! Theyíre not Russians, itís the Marseille mafia They kill politicians, they rule France, they rule the EU, kill all of us, you included What, are you afraid of some French frogs? Iím not afraid of them, tell us where you got those dodgy Euros from Boy, youíre young enough to be my son No, I couldnít PUKANIE DO DRZWI Boss, is everything okay here? Leave us Cypa, leave us – You have to shop – Or else, what? Youíve had enough. You want your son to be a respectable businessman And no one will shoot at him and his future wife wonít disappear into thin air like your missus did Iím giving you my word as an officer, weíll back away from Patryk, and heíll become whomever he likes. He could even become the president, although thatís a dumb job You shop to us those Frenchies, and weíll have them rounded up within a few months Theyíll never know it was you We want to get to the source of the cash: The intermediaries, smugglers, the warehouse, the printers, Sure itíll be a long process No one will ever suspect it was you Do you still drink the usual? Yeah, the young guy doesnít drink, pour him some water But you will leave Patryk alone Mag. You have a tattoo – Theyíre surely not the initials of – No, its a token of remembrance Here. Itís an identical banknote that I also made for the police What? for CBå No, itís not important Youíre getting married, but you donít love her Darek, I know you. Sheísí pregnant and now itís a shotgun thing
Zaba, Iíve already done the thinking Have a look at what I borrowed from my mother for your wedding – You like it? – I hope youíre not coming in this, eh? You can always come back to me, Iíll wait forever – Whatís happened? – Nothing. Iíve been to buy potatoes Tell the French that youíve found a buyer for the plate. Weíll buy it from them directly – Youíll be out of the loop – And youíll leave Patryk alone – Sure heís given you his word as an officer Kondeja has already promised me so much Young man, you give me your word and perhaps Iíll believe it Youíre an officer, you have your honor, and you also have your word What are you all glazed over for? Are you going to give him your word or not Fine. You have my word of honor No offence, Kondeja Youíll be out to pasture soon enough, and he may yet become a minister We have a deal And your dadís a beardy guy, eh? From conspiring did he enter into politics or business? – He combines one with the other – Like the rest of them And precisely? Heís a tram driver, like he used to be Heís happy with his lot – There are not too many of those about True Thatís why the worldís gone to pot Everyone thinks that driving a tram is a piece of cake.Itís something which takes years of practice Yeah, the turn.You have to go gently with trams, And they know how to be grateful too – You were seeing Aldona – Dad, letís not talk about it Sure Iím saying nothing. Watch the turn – She was cool – Dad. Letís not talk about it Hamuj! ZwoInij!

Iím not going to get weird with my boss,
during the Koúciuszko rising he pulled in my revered father Iím not talking about going weird on anyone, just look after yourself. – Whatís all this about? The Police had every device to hand, listening devices, informers And theyíd been looking for me, a lad in his early teens, for four years – Your leader is a crap copper – Theyíll lock you up eventually When you came out after the amnesty, I saw you for the first time You really had a beard then, Brodacz – And then we lost touch – Tomek, you know how things were Thanks to Kondeja, Iíve got to know my own father If he hadnít locked you up, youíd still be in hiding to this day I have to go Take care, son Keep your eyes in the back of your head – Hi, Dahomek – Hi Grand. – I think I saw Juby – Yeah, heís gone shopping Sit down. Relax there now – Have you had lunch? – Iíve dinner waiting for me at home I donít mean to put temptation in your way, or lead you down the wrong path, here from Marseille every day You remember? TGV to Lyon and then a plane Iíll order some molluscs if you like? Come on Youíve got those discs on a guarantee For sure? Good – Have you heard of Mamaj? – Whatís Mamaj? Mamaj is a mate, heí can be a bit touchy Heís traveled around a fair bit, robbed shops, not to mention his girl And they robbed a bank in the backwaters, get it? And they made 70 grand – Nice, did they nab him? – Yeah, heís doing porridge But do you know that when they were robbing that bank someone got 30 million stash to Balearic Islands or somewhere like that. Just like that, electronic cash – I donít understand Someone used Mamaj as a smoke screen, He got 70 grand, whereas there was another 30 million involved Per≥a, how do you know such things? Kruszon, if I didnít know what was going on in the city I wouldnít be where I am today – Howís your kid? – Heís interested in music Is he still in the orphanag?

And what did you tell the priest? Everything? To provide expertise is one thing But to take a gun to people and kill them is quite another Youíre right, real action is a totally different matter Apparently you recommended me to CBå? They were looking for someone like you, so I recommended you You told them that Iím some sort of hot shot If you think that way about me, then come back to me I sent you to CBå so I wouldnít have to deal with you anymore I told them that you were the best, and they took you on Besides, I donít want to be with the best policeman.
