An Affair (2018) Movie Script

I'm sorry I'm late.
I had some trouble with the copier.
- We've been here a while.
- Right, sorry.
I'm Anita. I'm new here, just like you.
I teach Phys Ed. I'll also
be filling in as your homeroom teacher.
Just so you know.
I suggest you introduce yourselves
with your first name and a fun fact.
So we can get to know each other.
You can go first.
My name is Nora.
A fun fact about me...
I spend 20,000 on make-up every year.
My name is Amalie.
I'm really good at playing the triangle.
Louise. I did not apply for this school.
Mariam. I like ice cream.
I've done all my piercings myself.
I'm Mina. I've done yoga for four years.
I'm Truls.
Chopping onions makes me cry.
My name is Robin.
I'm looking forward
to getting to know you better.
I'm Markus. I've got a big dick.
Right, I think we should...
Sorry, I have a short memory.
- What was your name?
- Anita.
What's your fun fact?
My name is Anita.
And I used to do gymnastics.
You'll be given a tour,
to get to know the school.
You can come with me.
I think they're ready for you.
Today is Hasse's birthday
Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah
He'll get a present, that's for sure
That he's been wishing for
With some lovely chocolate
And cakes as well
Happy birthday.
- Come in.
- Thanks, Dad.
- Mom's selling the house.
- Really? I didn't know that.
She's getting an apartment
closer to the city.
- It's a bit lonely in that big house.
- Of course.
It's going to be weird,
not being able to visit.
It's where we spent all of our childhood.
- All the memories.
- It will be strange.
- It will be nice for Mai-Britt.
- Yes.
And you? How's it going?
With me? It's going well.
You look really nice
with the eyelash extensions.
It suits you.
- I'm good.
- You're teaching?
- That's exciting.
- It's been a week.
We'll see how long it lasts.
Yes. We'll see.
- Aren't you going on a trip?
- Yes, to Budapest.
I moved it. Since Anita's working,
I moved it to October.
It's our wedding day, so it's perfect.
- Makes sense.
- How romantic.
How long are you in Frankfurt?
Until Friday.
Sweet dreams.
We go grouse hunting,
fishing, we eat, drink, tell lies...
- It's amazing.
- Sounds great.
I love it more than anything.
It's ten days of hanging out
with the guys, just chilling.
- Is it tradition?
- It's tradition.
This is actually our 25th trip.
Come on!
Come on!
- Anita?
- Yes?
- Can we go to the bathroom?
- Sure.
- Hurry back.
- Yes.
Well done, Markus.
You look good, too.
- Holy crap.
- I'm sorry.
I didn't know whether to clear my throat...
- Here you are.
- I'm sorry.
In the dark.
- How stupid.
- How have the first days been?
It's been good.
- And you like it here?
- Yes, I love it.
No rotten eggs?
Oh, you mean the students?
- Yes.
- Right. No.
They're really nice. A nice bunch.
That's good to hear.
I mean, everyone's different.
- Everyone's nice, but...
- But that's good.
- That people are different.
- Yes, exactly.
Right, I need some...
I'm done here.
I'm sorry, I just...
You mentioned that the person
responsible for the class is on sick leave.
I was just wondering
how long I'll be in charge.
A couple of months.
I'm not sure I'm really qualified.
If you have any questions, come to me.
Okay. Thank you.
Stop it! Stop it!
Stop it!
Hold him. Stop.
What are you doing?
- You're so fucking ugly!
- Cunt!
You're so ugly!
Anita! Get over here.
- Take him to the teacher's lounge.
- Markus?
- Okay.
- Right away.
Markus, come with me.
Markus, come with me. Come on.
- He poured ice tea down my neck.
- Ice tea? Why?
No idea.
I don't know him. He's a fucking idiot.
You should go to the nurse,
make sure you don't need stitches.
I don't think that's necessary.
Do you feel dizzy?
- Sure?
- I'm fine.
- No pressure behind the eyes?
- No, nothing.
Can I feel your neck?
- Yes.
- Okay.
Let's see...
Does this hurt?
- And this?
- I can feel it, but it doesn't hurt.
Your neck seems fine.
You should probably take it easy today.
I heard you broke your neck.
You heard?
- Is it true?
- It's true.
It's a long time ago.
What happened?
I was trying to qualify for a competition,
and I messed up the somersault.
But you're fine now?
Yes. I have a few screws back here.
- Seriously?
- Seriously.
- Can I feel?
- Feel the screws?
I don't think you can feel it.
Maybe one of them.
It's in the middle.
I can feel it.
There it is.
You don't seem that affected.
No, I was lucky.
You should get
to math class. Walk carefully.
- Hi, Astrid.
- Hi.
Forget about today.
Shouldn't have happened.
Crazy day?
Excuse me?
I said it's been a crazy day.
Right. Yeah.
I guess that's part of the job.
I don't know about that.
A little action is welcome.
Some excitement.
So it's not all neat and tidy.
So, you'll talk to the parents?
Oh, that's my responsibility?
Yeah, it is.
- Sure.
- Good.
What's up?
Something funny?
- Tell me.
- No, it's just...
Tell me.
- What is it?
- Just a friend of mine. It's silly.
What did she say?
Tell me.
Seemed funny.
It's a long story. It's hard to explain.
- I think I'll start the weekend.
- Yes.
- Are you staying?
- Just for a while.
Want to get a beer?
Or a glass of wine.
No, thank you.
No worries.
- Yes. All right.
- Yeah.
Have a good time.
Get the lights when you leave.
People get angry when you don't.
Just kidding.
Or maybe they do. Who knows?
- See you.
- See you.
Did you have a nice week?
It's been good.
How was your week?
It's been busy. As it should be.
The white roses in the hall,
where did they come from?
They were outside the door
when I got home.
No card?
No card.
- Hi. Welcome.
- Thanks.
- Oh my God, Anita?
- Yes, it's me.
- Hi, Unni.
- It's been a while.
- Ages.
- Exactly.
- Hi.
- Hi.
You haven't changed.
We did gymnastics together, many years ago.
- Right. Anita Lnstrup.
- Lars Simensen.
Nice to meet you.
Have a seat.
Markus, we know each other already.
Before we start...
Markus has soccer practice at seven,
- so if we could finish early...
- Sure.
- That's not a problem.
- He can be late.
He's got a match this weekend.
Is this such a big deal?
- The guy threw soda on him.
- Lars...
- Can I say something?
- Absolutely.
I'm very sorry about what happened.
I shouldn't have reacted that way.
I'm really against violence.
I think violence is wrong.
There you go. He learned from it.
I guess we're done here.
The thing is, the school's policy
for incidents like this is very strict.
I promised Simen's parents
to tell you that they considered reporting
it to the police, but chose not to.
Give me a fucking break.
I promised to let you know.
- Don't tell me to calm down.
- Well...
What does this mean?
Well... The thing is, that the principal
has decided that Markus will not
be going to Berlin with the class.
- You're joking?
- No.
He has already raised money.
His grandmother spent her small pension
on ten boxes
of the driest cookies ever made.
- "Oh"?
- Let's not get carried away,
but don't you think this is a little harsh?
This was not my decision.
- That trip is the highlight of the year.
- I understand.
You know what it's like at that age.
Is it really that serious?
That's how it is, we have a strict policy.
Strict policy? This is unbelievable.
I guess that's it.
You shouldn't hit people.
If someone throws something
at you, you react instinctively.
You can't help it.
I think we'll discuss this amongst
ourselves, and get back to you.
Maybe talk to a lawyer...
Is there anything else
you wanted to ask me?
No. Not at the moment.
I suggest we leave it there,
and keep in touch.
- Bye.
- Take care.
Bye, Unni.
- We'll talk more.
- I'll call you.
Will you be home for dinner?
This is a bad idea, Markus.
It's so fucking stupid.
Can I take you home?
- I'm biking.
- You're biking?
Okay. That's...
It's good for the environment.
That's really great of you.
Well, then... Yes.
I guess you should...
Okay, that was awkward.
I knew it right away.
Really awkward.
- It was.
- Good thing you noticed.
- A hug?
- Okay.
You smell really good.
- See you tomorrow.
- See you.
Okay! Come on, move it!
Hurry up! You can't be late for English.
If you don't have a bike, you run.
Plans for the weekend?
I don't know. Gardening?
Gardening? Cool.
Have fun with that.
It was nice to see you.
See you tonight?
I've got a match in Drammen:(
How about next week?
We can make pizza.
You came anyway! Feeling better?
- Much better. Thanks.
- Come in.
Wow. It's lovely.
Yes. We've just eaten,
but if you're hungry...
No thank you.
Well... Maybe you'd like some wine?
- No thanks. I don't drink.
- Oh, right.
Girls, I want you to meet Anita.
Right. Hi.
- Hi.
- Hi.
Anita and I used to
do gymnastics back in the day,
and all of a sudden
she's Markus' teacher.
Right. And Robin's teacher.
- Of course!
- He's said a lot of nice things.
- How nice. Anita Lnstrup.
- I'm Jenny.
These are my colleagues, Randi and Anne.
- Anita. Hi.
- Randi.
And this is Eli.
She lives just down the road.
- Nice to meet you.
- Have a seat.
- There's room.
- Here is fine.
Would you like some dessert?
I've made cheese cake.
No palm oil, this time.
- So, you're the bookworms?
- Yes, I suppose.
There used to be more of us.
But people drop out, for some reason.
- What are you reading?
- Without a Stitch by Jens Bjrneboe.
Okay. Is it any good?
- Yes, I really liked it.
- Did you?
Yes. It's entertaining.
It reminded me of my youth.
It's no wonder,
with all these sensitive souls.
People are so...
I thought it would be
much more explicit. Straight to the point.
It was banned, after all.
It still is.
You should read
The 120 Days of Sodom by Marquis de Sade.
- Is it new?
- No.
It's really old. It's from the 1700s.
The 1700s? That's really old.
I'm not sure I'm up for that.
- There you are. How was the match?
- Good.
- Did you win?
- Tie.
- Come say hi.
- Is it Markus?
If it isn't the soccer star.
He's all grown up.
He's the spitting image of his dad.
Did you score any goals?
- I was mostly on the bench.
- He's not feeling too well.
I can't help myself.
I have to give you a hug.
All grown up.
They just shoot up.
Yeah. Where do the years go?
You know each other, right?
Yes, we've had some gym classes.
Dodgeball and other things.
Robin just told me
that he's happy with the teacher.
That's nice to hear.
Why are you here?
- Why I'm here?
- Yeah.
You'll have to ask your mother that.
I invited her to join the book club.
I thought you might like it.
- Yes, it's fun.
- Cool.
I have to shower. Have a nice time.
He's so adorable.
Does he have a girlfriend?
No, he doesn't seem that interested.
You probably know.
- What?
- Since you're his teacher.
- I'm sorry?
- Does he have a girlfriend?
I'm afraid I know very little about that.
- I don't think so.
- Give it time.
And you? How's your love life?
You jumped right in.
Fine, I think.
- Are you single?
- No, I'm married.
Okay. Do you have children?
He's... Hasse has
two daughters who are grown up.
- And you're happy?
- I think it works well.
Some people get all the luck.
- Don't you start.
- Don't start with that.
- Is there more wine?
- Yes, there is.
Unni, where's the washroom?
Up the stairs, and to the left.
- Hello?
- Hi. It's me.
Oh, I'm sorry.
- There's a bathroom further down the hall.
- Thank you.
"Naturally, I wanted to
go out and explore the city,"
but a promise is a promise,
and I stayed in my room.
I took a bath,
and washed myself thoroughly, everywhere.
And went to bed with a book.
It was The Fisher Maiden, by Bjrnson.
If the travel fund
were increased by 5000 Norwegian kroner,
it would be a different matter.
I had Dr. Petterson
to thank for everything.
I was grateful to him. It would
be nice to have him next to me in bed.
Lying in his arms, feeling good.
"I must have dreamt of him that night."
How sweet.
- Sweet?
- Yes, just beautiful.
Where did you go?
I'm sorry. I felt a bit sick.
I just needed some air
and a splash of water.
- But I'm much better now.
- Have some cheese cake.
It's delicious.
You must be good at baking.
I'm really fond of this one.
- Did you like it?
- I'm just...
You seem a lot better.
- It woke me up.
- What did you put in that cake?
Isn't that the song from Armageddon?
What's that?
A movie
Let's watch it
- Mina? Mike? Truls?
- Yes.
- Robin?
- Yes.
- Amalie? Pernille?
- Yes.
- Mariam? Eline?
- Yes.
- Markus?
- He's sick.
Okay. Olivia, Maja, Emma, Nora.
Let's go inside.
How are you feeling?
It feels like something's not quite right.
- Can't you tell?
- No.
What would that be?
A necklace.
A necklace.
I think that's what was missing.
Good. We have to get going.
I'll be right there.
You've been a little distant lately.
- You think?
- Yes.
I don't know. Maybe I'm just tired.
Who are you texting all the time?
It's school stuff.
School stuff? What stuff?
One of the teachers
is having some trouble with a student.
One of the teachers? Who's that?
- Her name is Elisabeth.
- Elisabeth? Okay.
What kind of trouble?
Well... It's boring, really.
She wanted advice.
She wanted your advice? The new teacher?
I'm so excited about Budapest.
We haven't been for a while.
Thank you.
How many are we?
It's just the people from the firm.
So, lot's of lawyers and me?
No, I think they've brought their partners.
Could you not mention
that you've started working?
- Why?
- Hi, guys.
Hi. Good to see you.
- Hi.
- Why?
This is Sofie. She's the new lead counsel.
- Hi. Anita.
- Sofie. Pleasure.
And Henriette, who's a partner.
- Hi. Anita.
- Nice to meet you, Anita.
You haven't met before?
- I don't think so.
- No.
Oh? You've been with us for so long.
- Yes.
- Four years, is it?
Five years.
That's a long time.
We work closely.
- We do.
- You came to Frankfurt the last time.
She's very competent.
It's nice to finally meet you.
I've heard a lot of... good things.
Henriette, how was Davos?
Oh, it was incredible.
I mean, I didn't have
any expectations. I was there for work.
Did you get my text?
I actually think we should
have our meeting there.
You get altitude training
from just staying at the hotel.
It's really high.
- Pardon?
- Sounds like it's high up.
Yes. It's at 2000 meters.
That's high. It's just...
What was it like to work out? How was it?
It's a little hard, but it's great.
Who were you working out with?
With Marianne and the others.
I see. You haven't been?
Where did we go last year? Paris.
What a lovely city.
Such a lovely city, Paris.
The Eiffel Tower...
Oh, yes. Paris was amazing.
It was a wonderful trip. But wouldn't
it be fun to try something new?
Never better
The baby-sitter? Do they want more money?
What happened??
It's just some work stuff.
How long have you been married?
- Hasse and I?
- No.
- Yes, you and Hasse.
- Going on five years.
Five years? That's not long.
On the whole.
Are you pregnant?
No, I'm not.
Oh, right. No.
- Would you like some wine?
- No thanks.
And you met on the ferry to Denmark?
No. We met online.
- On...?
- Online.
They met online. Online dating.
On one of those apps?
No, you create a profile,
and then you see if there's a match.
Isn't that just for sex?
I want to sleep with him, and him...
- It's not?
- Hasse?
Hasse, I'm going to the washroom.
It's normal?
Is there an app for
men with five children?
Hi, it's Markus.
I can't pick up right now.
I need to go outside.
- Hi.
- Hi.
- Hi, there.
- You look nice.
Thank you.
I've been at a party with my husband.
- I just need a word with Markus.
- Okay?
- He wasn't at school today.
- He wasn't?
- No. You didn't know?
- No.
Okay. One of the kids said he was sick.
No, I don't think so.
Anyway, he missed out on mandatory lessons.
And that's not good at this level.
We have a test on that subject next week.
- Right.
- I wanted to fill him in, if he's home.
He's not, he's at practice.
- What kind of practice?
- At the soccer field.
- By the school?
- Yes.
We're going to the cinema.
We're seeing Almodvar's new one.
Le Carne del Amor.
With Palma de Rossy.
I'll just go over there and tell him.
No problem.
- Excuse me? Have you seen Markus?
- No.
Tall, dark, short hair.
He's on the junior team.
- Isn't he with Robin?
- I think he went to the harbor.
Markus? Hi.
Can you come here?
I just need a word with you.
I just have to...
- Hi.
- Hi.
- Nice to see you again.
- You, too.
What's going on?
I just want to know
why you're not answering my texts.
- I've been busy.
- Busy?
I thought you were sick.
I haven't gotten enough sleep.
- Is something bothering you?
- Not really.
- Are you sure?
- Yes.
Totally sure?
I've just...
...fallen in love.
It's no big deal.
I'm taking it step by step.
Nice and slow, from now on.
What is it?
We're talking about the same person?
- I think so.
- Mina from school.
- You didn't think I meant us?
- No.
No. Are you crazy?
- No.
- Because that would be weird.
Yes, imagine that.
You're like, 50 years old.
So, you and Mina are a couple?
- I don't know, we're dating.
- Okay.
Nice. She seems like a sweet girl.
Yeah, she's...
She's hot.
Did you talk to the principal
about the Berlin trip?
Berlin, can I go?
Did you talk to the principal?
- No.
- No?
Then do it.
- Want some?
- No thanks.
Do you need a ride?
I'm with the guys.
Can you open?
Unlock it. It's locked.
It's the child-proofing.
Thank you.
- See you on Monday.
- Yeah.
- Sweet. Aerobics.
- Aerobics.
Excuse me.
I'm sorry.
Seriously. She gave him a blowjob.
Have a nice weekend.
This trip to Budapest...
How do you feel about it?
How do I feel?
I think it'll be really nice.
Budapest is lovely. Beautiful city.
Yes. But wouldn't it
be just as nice if we waited until spring?
There's just a lot going on.
I'm two days in Frankfurt,
I'm going to London in a bit,
and you seem to be busy as well.
Yeah, but...
That's fine, we can postpone.
Let's talk about it in the spring.
It's better, warmer.
There's a crisis at work.
Thank you so much
for the meal, you're a brilliant cook.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
See you tomorrow. Sweet dreams.
Sweet dreams.
Five laps around the school, slow pace!
Go! We'll meet back here when you're done.
Get going! No whining.
Mina, are you there?
It's Anita.
What's wrong?
Open the door. We'll talk about it.
Oh dear...
What happened?
Oh dear.
What's wrong? What happened?
Someone posted a picture of me on Facebook.
What kind of picture?
- A horrible nude photo.
- Oh no.
Who would do that?
I don't know. Markus took the photo.
Okay. You think Markus posted it?
I don't know. Maybe.
That's an awful thing to do.
Just awful.
Listen to me.
I don't know you that well,
and I don't know Markus either.
But you seem like such a great girl,
who deserves a great boyfriend.
I don't think Markus is quite right.
You hear me? He's not quite right.
Okay? You deserve better.
Right? Come here.
I'm so sorry. Poor girl.
How's your mother?
She's not my mom.
Ragnhild, then.
I have no idea.
I haven't talked to her in years.
- How's Markus doing?
- Good.
I think.
I haven't seen much
of him lately, he's been rather busy.
How so?
Well, I think he has a girlfriend.
Oh, right. She's...
- Mina. From school.
- I know.
What a lovely girl.
I don't know about that.
- You know her.
- I'm not going to say anything.
- I think it's good for him.
- Good for you.
- Oh?
- She's good at appearing sweet.
She'll tighten her pony tail, and...
She's really dangerous.
Now that you mention it,
they had a fight the other day.
Oh no.
Judging from the sounds
I heard last night, I think they made up.
They're so busy at that age.
They're going at it. Were we like that?
Not me.
- What is it?
- I need to talk to you.
- You have to stop stalking me.
- Stalking you?
I need to talk to you.
I have something to tell you.
Come here!
Okay. What the hell is it?
I'm pregnant.
How far along are you?
Well, it's... You know.
It's about six weeks, ish.
And you're totally sure...
I think it looks like you.
So you're not on birth control?
No, I'm not.
My husband got a vasectomy
years ago, so it hasn't been...
That's great.
Markus, don't be upset.
- Markus...
- So fucking stupid.
Don't be upset.
I can't bear seeing you like that.
It's going to be all right.
It's going to be all right.
Okay? It's going to be fine.
We'll figure it out together.
I'm so stupid. I'm so stupid.
Don't say that.
You are amazing.
You're amazing, you're not stupid.
We're on the same page, right?
This stays between us.
What's on your mind?
You won't tell Mina?
Tell Mina?
No. Of course not.
Why would I tell her? This is about us.
- Yeah.
- Markus.
This is our secret.
Right? It's about you and me.
I'll see you soon?
- Yeah.
- Right?
Okay. Text me.
And remember to reply to my texts.
I get so freaked out when you don't answer.
- I will.
- Don't wait too long, or I'll worry.
See you.
- Bye.
- Bye.
Hi. You're here?
Out and about? Doing some shopping?
I just tried on a dress.
- Peach?
- I guess so.
I'm looking for a present.
My mom's turning 67.
Congratulations. I'll just pay for this.
I was just wondering...
Have you heard any rumors about
a freshman
who's been sleeping with a teacher?
- I haven't heard anything.
- You didn't know?
No, I didn't.
I'll keep an eye out.
The thing is...
I walked past the cafeteria,
and overheard some girls talking.
I was just wondering
if you knew anything.
You know,
girls like that say a lot of things.
- How was it?
- It's beautiful.
I've parked illegally,
so I'll have to come back.
I'll see you around.
Why won't you pick up?
We need to talk!
Why won't you pick up?
Did you call?
I miss you.
Your beautiful face.
Your soft skin, your warm body.
Do you want to come over tonight?
My husband is out of town,
we can make pizza... a match, just the two of us.
Fucking hell.
Everything's here.
What are you doing, Anita?
Are you pregnant?
If you touch my son again...
...I'll kill you.
- Do you get that? I'll kill you!
- I get it.
- Hi.
- Hi. I need a room.
One room. No problem.
- How long will you be staying?
- Don't know.
I'll need a credit card.
As you probably know, there have been...
...a lot of rumors going around recently.
When things like this happen,
there tends to be a bit of confusion.
So, I think it's best
to let Anita explain what has happened.
And you can pass it on to the students.
I just feel...
It's stupid, because no matter
what you're thinking, you're right.
About everything.
You're just relieved that you're not me.
I don't know why I have to...
It's pointless.
Do you want me to say...
- I think we need an explanation.
- Okay.
This should not have happened.
I just don't get why
I have to... It's so unnecessary.
Fuck. This is so...
I didn't know that people
would react this way.
Everyone's gone crazy. The school...
My mom...
It was the same with the Berlin trip.
That worked out, though.
Hasse is a nice guy.
But you'll probably find another guy
you can have kids with,
if that's what you wanted.
Have a nice day. Good luck with everything.
