Attachment (2022) Movie Script

Wake up.
Won't you wake up?
Come on.
Fuck. Fuck.
Sorry. Sorry. Sorry.
Sorry, I didn't see you. I...
Sorry. I'm late for work,
and I'm in a hurry.
Sorry, I have
no idea what you are saying,
or what's going on here.
Oh, sorry. I was just...
I was just saying that
I'm sorry,
and I'm late
for this work thing,
and I don't know where it is,
so I'm a bit...
Oh! Does it have to do
with that
group of children?
Yup, that's it.
I'm... I'm sorry.
Sorry again.
TV's own Elf Princess Carla
will be reading aloud
in a moment.
Hello, everybody.
I'm sorry I'm late.
Are you ready to go on
some Christmas adventures
with the Elf Princess Carla?
He pulled out his big Christmas
bazooka and shot them all.
"Ouch, my arm!"
And then they all died.
But they were tired
and needed a break,
so we'll have one, too.
- Hi.
- I was going to give you this.
But now I see you're some
big important celebrity,
I'm afraid I'm just going
to have to keep it.
- Yeah.
- You'll have to get your own.
They don't sell them anymore.
It's very old.
Like, very old.
Well, that only makes it
all the more valuable.
- Right?
- Yeah.
- There you go.
- There you go.
- Sorry about the mix-up.
- No, no, I was the one...
Please don't go.
Sorry. Just...
Sorry, I was...
Yeah, I was just wondering,
if maybe you...
If you want to go for a drink,
and then, you know,
maybe you can
have my autograph if you want.
I don't understand.
Surely, you can just give me
your autograph here.
We don't have to go for a drink
for that, do we?
Oh, right. Yeah, of course...
No, it was just that, I think...
I'm just taking the piss.
- Sorry... Okay.
- Yeah, okay. Yeah.
- Like, right now?
- Yeah.
Well, it's actually 11:00 a.m.
A bit early for a drink. Tea?
Yes, too early.
Tea is fine. I love tea!
So I know that I have
some tea somewhere.
I just...
I... Oh, there it is.
There's all these
different fruits.
- Great.
- What would you like?
- Uhh...
- Strawberry?
And I decided I wanted to do
some field work abroad
for my thesis.
And I had never actually been
to Denmark,
which is really weird,
'cause my mum is Danish.
So, I came here,
did a bit of research,
and I go home
in a couple of days.
That's why I'm here.
Am I talking too much?
No. It's nice hearing you talk.
No, it was like
a Christmas TV show.
So you don't really
act anymore?
No, not really, no.
Only like that kind of stuff...
Like the...
Like elf stuff.
So, what do you do
for your rent?
Nothing, actually.
It's my mum's place.
- You live with your mum, too?
- What? No.
No, no, no.
She's... She's dead.
- Oh, my God. I'm sorry.
- No, no, no. She got divorced.
Then she got really sick.
Then she died.
And now it's my place.
Which is... nice.
Wait. You live with your mum?
Oh. Umm...
Yeah, back in London.
Like, in separate flats,
just in the same house.
It's not weird.
It doesn't sound weird at all,
It sounds really nice.
So, what? Does that make me
Queen of Christmas?
No, you're like
the Elf Princess.
Too much responsibility for me.
It's your goodbye present.
This is yours forever.
- Take it, please.
- No, I can't.
- What? What's happening?
- Sorry.
What? What happened?
I think you might
have been sleepwalking.
Oh, no. Did I do something
Like pee or eat something weird?
No, no, you just stood there.
- What's that smell?
- Oh, I'm making you bacon.
I can't eat that.
No, no, it's fine.
Sorry, I didn't realize you
were religious.
- I'm really sorry.
- No, I'm not. It's fine.
And I'm not.
It's just that some things
stick, you know.
Because my dad was like super
religious before he left my mom.
Like... Haredi, you know.
Oh. Wow. Okay. But...
So your mum isn't?
Yeah, it's kind of a long story.
Do you want me to make you
some eggs instead?
Right. Good.
Wait. First, can you just bring
a piece of that over here?
- This?
- Mm-hmm.
- Krolle?
- That's curls.
That just sounds like you
coughed and it's gone wrong.
You know what?
I think you're really jealous
that I know Danish,
and you don't know any Danish.
And this is halskaede.
- No.
- That's it.
It's a very beautiful necklace.
Yeah, it's actually...
My mum gave it to me
when I was a kid.
Yeah, it's an amulet.
Jewish superstition thing.
It's supposed to protect me
from disease, apparently.
- Great.
- Yeah.
I promised my mum
I'd never take that one off.
Speaking of...
She wants to know
when I get in tomorrow.
I'll text her later.
I hate early flights.
- You have everything?
- Yep.
All right...
Okay. Just...
- Bye.
- Yeah, bye.
I didn't go.
I got down there,
and I couldn't.
I just didn't...
I didn't wanna go, so...
I didn't go.
This is a good thing, right?
This is a good thing?
Me staying.
Is it? Are we...
happy about this?
Oh, God.
I'm just, yeah...
That was crazy.
I'm just gonna...
"You could give me a look."
"Walking around in the rain."
ATTACHMEN"And the night has eyes."
"'Cause you're beautiful now."
"Yes, you're beautiful now."
"Oh, for Heaven's sake."
- "Open up your flower."
- Eww.
That's your favorite song?
In Danish it's very romantic.
I'll find something else.
You want to get that?
- Hmm?
- The phone.
Oh, I'll get it later.
Are you not so hungry?
Okay, I'll make
some more coffee.
Wake up.
Okay. I think I'm gonna
have to rest a second.
When is your flight tomorrow?
7:00 a.m.
Apparently, one of those
cool carts
is going to take me to the gate.
So, that's pretty cool.
- I'm really, really sorry.
- Hey, it was a seizure.
I haven't had one
since I was a kid.
It's weird.
It's been a really long time.
It was either that or God
telling me
that I'm not allowed
to stay anymore.
I'm sure that's
what my mum thinks.
Hey, I'm just joking.
It's gonna be fine.
I'll go with you.
To London, I mean. I'll...
I'll go with you.
You don't want to come
and be in my weird house
with my weird mum.
Yes, yes, I do.
I do want that.
Well, this is it.
It's lovely.
All right...
Oh, Mum.
- Poor thing.
- Hi.
Oh, my little darling.
- I'm fine.
- Nonsense.
- Mum.
- Come.
Mum... Mum!
That's... No, don't.
That's actually
making it harder.
This is Maja.
Chana. Nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you.
- My flat's upstairs.
- All right.
Mum's is this one downstairs.
Yes, I was just up there
cleaning up the mess
you've left behind.
Let's get you into bed.
No, I don't need to get
into bed, Mum.
Of course you do. You have
been travelling all day.
And on Shabbos.
And a cab, too.
I'm literally on crutches,
and we got out a mile away.
Well, someone could
still see you.
- Who cares? Don't say God cares.
- God cares.
- The neighbors care.
- I care.
So you care that
the neighbors care?
I'm sorry,
I didn't know that...
- Oh, no one cares about you.
- Mum!
That's not...
You know what I meant.
You're a goy.
You're not Jewish.
So you can do what you want.
- Exactly, whereas Leah here...
- Don't start.
Oh, my little baby.
Tomorrow, I'm giving you one
of my massages.
Just like when you were little
and got your funny episodes.
- Great.
- Now you need to relax.
- No, I'm fine.
- No, just lie down.
- I don't need to.
- Just lie down and relax.
Just lie down.
Just stop!
Don't yell at me!
You know what...
You're right. I'm knackered.
Why don't you just leave us
for a bit? Yeah?
And I'll rest.
All right. Yes.
Just don't nap too long or you
won't be able to sleep tonight.
I'll bring up dinner later.
Careful with that one.
Fuck. Sorry.
I'm sorry.
I forgot you speak Danish.
It's impolite when Leah
is around.
Of course.
I'm sorry about that.
I'll replace it.
That'll be hard.
It's an antique.
Hand-painted by Babylonian Jews.
It protects against demons.
Oh, God... Okay...
Then I'll...
I'm joking. It's a copy.
Ah, okay.
I made it.
So it's not that valuable.
Just irreplaceable.
Well, I'll run down
for the rest of the food.
Be careful not to cut yourself.
You're not wearing any shoes.
It's really delicious.
So, Leah tells me that you have
lived here for almost 30 years.
- Mum?
- What?
No, I'm just saying that
that's a long time.
I was just wondering
if you ever miss Denmark.
- No...
- Mum, can it just...
Can't it wait? We're eating.
- But it'll just take...
- Mum.
Wait. Okay?
So, Maja has been teaching me
a bit of Danish.
Using old pop songs.
- Oh, really?
- Yes, well, just like '80s hits.
Yeah, actually,
you probably know them
from when you were a teenager.
What's that one that always
makes me laugh?
"The fear is an ice flower..."
- "Sjael I flammer."
- Yes. "Soul In Flames."
That's the one.
Do you know that one?
No, no. I'm sorry.
I don't think I do.
How does it go?
Oh, umm...
Soul in flames...
Fear is an ice flower
in your mind
Soul in flames
Playing tricks on your mind...
Inside is a little...
No, I don't think
I know that one, no.
Oh, okay.
Well, you know,
I think I'm getting
pretty good at it, actually.
Okay, that's terrible.
Lars H.U.G.
- Sorry, I just really need to...
- Okay.
It's an old Jewish superstition.
Can't leave a book open
or a demon might read it
and learn from it
and use the knowledge for evil.
Oh. Cool.
Shavua Tov, love.
Shavua Tov, Mum.
Thank you for helping her
get home.
Oh, umm...
I have this for you.
It's an amethyst.
It brings good luck.
So you should keep it on
at all times.
I mean, yeah.
Thank you. Thank you.
Well, I think that
went pretty well.
Is your mum like...
Is she, like...
Is she okay with this?
She's gonna love you.
Just give it some time.
Okay. All right.
I mean, she has met your
girlfriends in the past, right?
Yeah, yeah.
Yeah, she knew them. Yeah.
Well, she knew of them.
I'll do it.
I don't know. She just...
She seems really...
Yeah, religious, I guess.
Oh. Yes, she is.
I mean... Well...
She wasn't born into
a religious family.
You know,
she was actually born into
a pretty relaxed Jewish family,
but then she met my dad.
And she came here,
and she just couldn't fit in.
You know, it's not the kind
of community you can just join.
And yet, my dad still insisted
on staying here
and trying to make it work.
And then he just fucked off.
And I think he kind of
broke something in her.
Even after he left, I think
even after all this time,
she still keeps trying
to fit in.
And there are some people who
even humor her,
like my uncle
and some of his friends.
You know,
she'll go to their shops,
and they'll chat
Yiddish with her
and make her feel kind of
sort of welcome,
but it's all kind of nonsense.
But despite all of her whatever,
she has always loved me.
She has, you know.
are you still okay with this,
even now?
- Is something wrong?
- Mum, what the hell?
No, no, no,
I was just doing some exercises
to help with the knee.
Mum, you can't barge in
like that.
I came to give you
your massage.
Yeah, but you've got to knock.
- Knock!
- Mum, now is not a good time.
Now, Maja, it's crucial
that there be
no disturbances or distractions.
So maybe you should
just go for a little walk.
Yes, of course.
- No, you can stay!
- No, no, no, it's fine.
It's fine. It's fine.
She's good.
Lie down.
- Yes, what do you want?
- Yes... Hi.
Sorry, I was just wondering
if you have any books on...
I'll call you back.
Hi. I was just wondering if you
have any books on, like...
How to do, like...
Like Jewish stuff.
Excuse me,
if you don't mind me asking,
that necklace,
where did you get it?
My friend's mum gave it to me.
Yeah, I just moved here.
She says it means good luck.
Yeah. Yes, yes.
You can say that.
It's an amethyst.
Now, they ward off demons
and the like.
- Demons? Okay.
- Yes, and the like. Well...
So welcome.
Welcome to the area.
I'm afraid I have no such books
you're asking for.
My selection caters
to a slightly more,
let's say, advanced readership.
Right. Of course, yeah.
But, I mean, do feel free
to visit anytime
if there's anything else
I can ever help you with.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
- Okay, let me see you out.
- Okay.
- Hi.
- Hi.
Oh, there you are.
It's not good for Leah
to be alone.
Yes, yes, of course.
Here, love.
Have some chicken soup.
- How was your massage?
- Yeah, really good, actually.
Mom was right, it did help.
I think I fell asleep
at one point.
- Yes, you did.
- That soup smells really good.
- Here, try some.
- Sorry, the soup is for Leah.
- Oh, sure.
- Huh?
Don't... Maja, just try some.
No, the soup is for you.
You're the one who's sick.
I'm not sick, Mum.
I'm just injured.
Either way.
Okay, well, is there
any more left over?
You made a single bowl of soup?
Well, I'm sorry I made you
a nice soup.
Perhaps Maja would prefer
I make her a soup of her own.
It's not like I have
anything else to do
with my life than make soup.
- Why are you being so weird?
- Weird?
Oh, so, caring is weird?
Will you just stop, okay?
Well, if me caring is so weird,
you know what?
Let me take this soup
away from you...
So you won't be bothered
by your weird mother.
- Fine.
- Fine.
- Was that somehow my fault?
- Oh. You bought wine.
You sure you don't want me
to come?
No, Mum's gonna take me.
It's just the doctor.
This place really isn't set up
for someone on crutches.
Where is it?
It didn't leave the house.
Fucking wallet. Where is it?
Oh, found it!
Okay, see ya.
This is another amulet.
It protects the children.
See these words here?
These are the Shemot.
- Shemot.
- The names of God.
God has a lot of names.
Yes, many names.
Have you heard of the Kabbalah?
Yeah, sure. Like the Madonna
thing, right?
Okay. No, Kabbalah is
Jewish mysticism.
Kabbalists believe that
the names of God
can wield enormous power.
Unlocking the secrets
of the universe.
Warding off evil.
Come. Let me show you something.
Here we are.
- "Sitra Achra."
- It means "The other side".
It's what we use to describe
certain supernatural beings.
Like the Golem. You heard
the story of the Golem?
Golem is a giant monster
made out of clay
by the rabbi in Prague.
He made it to protect the Jews
in the city.
And then he wrote one
of the Shemot,
one of God's names,
onto its forehead,
bringing the Golem to life.
Here. Have a look.
- Yeah?
- Yes.
That's the Dybbuk,
it's the tortured soul
of someone who died.
Just like a ghost.
No, it's not like a ghost.
It's a Dybbuk.
It's not like a ghost at all.
The Dybbuks possess the body
of the living.
The only way to expel them
or to exorcise them
is by finding out who they are
and what they want.
Like a ghost.
No! It's not a ghost.
It's a Dybbuk.
What about this one?
That's the Witch of Endor.
That's the first witch
ever mentioned in the Bible.
She's a very complicated figure.
Some say she's good.
Some say she's bad.
You see, sorcery, black magic,
it's all very forbidden
by the Talmud.
Whoever practices it is
considered dangerous,
What's this?
Speaking of black magic,
that is a very dangerous ritual.
It would also...
have to wait for another day.
Another day.
A goy tourist.
- It's not too bad.
- Poor thing.
- It will be better.
- Was it very painful?
It was. And do you remember...
This is my Uncle Lev,
my dad's brother.
He's just decided to drop by.
Isn't that nice?
Maja is a friend visiting
from Copenhagen.
What a coincidence!
You see, Ms. Maja has become
a bit of a regular at my shop.
You didn't say that.
- I'll get it for you. I got it.
- No, no.
- I got it. I got it.
- I insist. Please.
Please, come sit down.
You see, I wanted to apologize
for earlier.
I was a bit abrupt,
and I'm sorry for that.
See, what we were discussing
used to be
a very rich part
of Jewish mysticism.
But nowadays, it's frowned upon,
and I can't be seen discussing
these things in public.
And then you also forgot this.
Now, you should put it back
where you found it, okay?
So put it back.
- Yes.
- Thank you.
Would you like a cup of tea or
do you want to stay for dinner?
I would love...
- I'm sure Lev has plans.
- Mum's here.
I'm just gonna go lock myself...
Gonna go to the bathroom.
Yeah, so, it turns out
that I've been to Lev's shop.
Pure coincidence.
That's nice.
She doesn't
know. But she should.
It's too much for you alone.
That's very kind of you to ask.
But there's really nothing
to worry about.
It can't go on like this.
I have everything under control.
It's for your own good.
Yes, just the way I like it.
Yes, Lev here was just saying
that he has other places to be,
Yes, I must get going.
Okay. Oh, wait.
I almost forgot.
Some snacks...
for my poor, injured niece.
- Yeah, try them. They are good.
- Yeah.
They're like
peanut butter puffs.
Why did you throw them
on the floor?
No, no, no. Sorry, sorry.
I'm just super allergic.
I can't...
Oh, my God. I'm so sorry.
No, no, it's fine. Sorry.
I'm just allergic.
Yeah, but don't throw them
on the floor.
No, I'm sorry. I just...
Yes, so, perhaps Lev should
be on his way,
before he kills someone.
- Sorry.
- I'll walk you out.
I didn't
know she was allergic.
Are you okay?
- I locked myself out.
- You could just come up to us.
- Leah's got a spare key, right?
- Yes.
- I'll wake her.
- No, don't do that!
I've had a few drinks.
And that's not...
It's best if you don't...
Stay there.
This is actually the first time
I'm seeing your flat...
- Thank you.
- Hey...
I was wondering if you would
show me around the neighborhood.
Leah is meeting
with her advisor.
It's not a good time.
I have a lot to do.
you look like someone
who could use a helping hand.
The usual, please.
Are you sure?
It's fine. Just wrap it extra
carefully, please.
Thank you.
Christmas is all
I can think about!
Father Christmas,
maybe we're all...
- What are you watching?
- Nothing.
Just doing lots of very boring
reading, writing.
what are you watching?
It's actually
a very helpful documentary
about wealth
and resource distribution
from the North Pole.
Oh, no.
Okay, I've actually watched,
like, eight episodes by now,
and you're so good in it.
No, stop.
You want to watch
an episode with me?
Well, you know,
for what it's worth,
I actually find seeing you
on screen quite hot.
- What's that?
- What's what?
You all right?
Yeah, it's great. It's great.
It's great.
Come here.
- Sorry, sorry.
- What's going on?
I heard something.
I got distracted.
Sorry. Sorry.
What is that?
It's the fucking bed, Maja.
It creaks sometimes.
Sorry, I just... I...
I thought someone was in here.
Thought someone was in here?
Where would they be?
Like, under the bed?
I don't know.
Just a few nights ago
I heard these, like, footsteps.
What, you don't hear it?
You probably just need
some sleep or something.
I'm gonna go pee.
Speaking of sleep,
could we maybe just...
not light that candle
What candle?
Well, the...
Okay, I don't know
how to say this.
I was just thinking
it's really weird
that we hardly know each other,
you know, like...
You weren't even supposed
to be here.
I guess...
I just wanted to thank you.
I have never been
in anything like this before.
Like, this serious. Like...
And I feel like I might not be
very good at it all the time.
But you're still here.
Thank you.
You know, like, maybe when
my leg's got better...
we can think about going
somewhere, like...
the two of us.
We'll try something new.
Wake up.
Please. Wake up.
You have to wake up now.
- Ms. Maja.
- Oh, hi.
Sorry, they've just left
for the physiotherapist.
No, it's okay.
It's a good thing.
I came to see you.
I thought you might need
a little something to read.
Can I come in?
How are you getting along
with my sister-in-law?
Oh, uhh...
Good, I think.
Yeah, great. She's just...
Yeah, she's just great,
you know. She's just wonderful.
I mean, she can be a little...
complicated to be around.
Yeah, sometimes, maybe.
Actually, I think
she absolutely hates me.
- No, come on. No.
- Yes, I think she does.
She certainly doesn't hate you
for the reasons
you might think she hates you.
What do you mean?
Well, I mean, I know some
friendships are close.
But very few friendships
are so close
in an apartment
with only one bed.
- No, no. It's not like that.
- Listen, I don't care.
Really, I mean, I could care,
perhaps I should care,
but I really don't care.
And I can promise you,
neither does Chana.
You see, she is...
She's a very troubled woman,
and she's in a lot of pain.
She is in more pain
than you could ever imagine.
I wish I could help her,
but I can't.
Neither can Leah, but...
While it might not
seem like that,
I think perhaps you might be
able to help her.
- I don't think I get it.
- Just wait, and you'll see.
Just put it there.
- I can bring it in for you.
- I'll get it.
No, just put them there.
It's no problem.
I might as well bring them in...
- Just do as I tell you.
- I just want to help you...
I don't need your help.
Give me that.
No, but...
Excuse me, but don't you have
anything better to do?
I don't understand
what's wrong with you.
Why are you so persistent?
Because I'm trying
to make a good impression.
Because I love your daughter,
you fucking tool!
Because I'm madly in love
with her,
and I want to do
everything I can
to have a good life with her,
and you're making it
ridiculously hard for me.
"Put the bags there.
No, don't do that.
You need to come home sooner.
No, go for a walk."
I'm sorry. I'm really sorry.
I shouldn't have
called you a tool,
or made fun of the way you talk,
or made that...
fart noise. Fuck!
I'm sorry, Chana. I'm sorry,
there's just...
a lot going on.
I just sat there
in my dead mum's flat.
I just stopped doing things.
I didn't even pick up the phone
when it rang.
Everyone else had...
gotten real fucking lives
and real homes and real jobs
and real children.
And then suddenly,
there was Leah.
Someone to love.
Someone to take care of.
Someone to get up for
in the morning.
I don't know, now I just feel
that if it's not about her,
or when it's not for her,
then I don't know what to do
with myself.
That's weird, isn't it?
That you can feel like that.
Yes, you should probably be
careful about that.
You end up becoming
someone else.
And you have to be careful
about that.
You become someone else,
and that's dangerous.
Why did you stay... here?
For Leah.
It's a good thing
that she has you.
But I do look forward
to her leg getting better,
so we can travel.
Find a new, exciting place
to live.
Is that something Leah has...
No, no, it's... It's just
something we've talked about.
We think it's
really great that...
I have to make dinner now.
What's this?
A book Lev gave me.
He shouldn't give you this.
Oh, stop, it's just
a sweet present...
- And stay away from Lev!
- Come on...
Do as I tell you!
Lev, stop. You will not
go behind my back again.
Stop talking to the girl.
Stop giving her things.
Stay out of it!
No, I'm coming over
with the book.
Leah! Please wake up.
Maja, what the fuck is wrong
with you?
Magic and poisoned chicken soup
and Kabbalah?
I know how it sounds, okay,
but I'm telling you,
she's coming in here at night,
and she's lighting candles...
No one is coming in here.
Listen. Just look.
Just look at this.
What... What is that?
It's a drawing
of your apartment.
This is your furniture, and she,
like, arranges it in a pattern.
Maja, why are you showing
me this? I don't care.
I'm just saying that she's,
like, sick.
She's just... She's like
mentally ill.
I know! Don't you think
I fucking know that?
Why do you think I'm still here?
This is what I've been trying
to tell you.
She's not well,
and she needs me.
Okay. I understand that
she needs you...
You know...
Maybe this was a mistake.
I think maybe we got ahead
of ourselves.
You need to just go
and clear your head.
You're not wearing your amulet.
Maybe she's right.
Perhaps it was a mistake.
Perhaps you should just go home.
For your own sake.
I'm not afraid of you.
You know that's not true.
You have to...
You have to help me!
No. Listen,
I can't talk to you.
Chana told me to stay away...
You don't understand.
She's going to kill her.
Okay? And Leah doesn't
believe me, but I saw it.
Don't talk to Leah about it.
Just forget everything
I ever said.
Forget everything
I ever told you.
Get away from her
as fast as you can.
Now, you listen to me.
She is very, very dangerous.
Hello. So happy to see you.
Come in.
Thank you.
Let me take that.
I'll get it ready.
- No, I can...
- Mum.
Shabbat shalom.
- Come in.
- Gut Shabbos, love.
- This looks lovely.
- It's all Maja.
To fresh starts.
- L'chaim.
- L'chaim.
- Mum, the chicken's really good.
- Thank you, love.
Very good.
So, you know how I was
getting all upset
about my supervisor
the other day?
He actually sent me
an email today.
And it was a lot better
than I thought.
You know I had
that really bad...
- That's good.
- meeting with him.
Yeah, but...
He said that the edits that
I just sent through
on my chapters were pretty good.
He also said that...
Maja, are you okay?
What's wrong with her? Maja?
Mum, Mum, help her.
EpiPen. She's having
an allergic reaction.
Bathroom! Bathroom mirror!
Behind the bathroom mirror!
Just hang on, hang on.
Maja, hold on, just hold on.
Quick. Give it to her now.
Hold on.
What the fuck just happened?
- The food.
- What?
Are those peanuts?
Did you just put peanuts
in her chicken?
Mum, you could have killed her.
Why would I...
- I need you to go now.
- But I...
insane. You have no idea.
Without me,
you're going to die.
Both of you.
He will kill you.
Mum, you need to go now.
He will kill my little girl.
What are you talking about?
And it's all your fault!
I said go!
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry. I lost my temper.
I apologize, Maja.
I'm so sorry.
I don't know how the peanuts
got in the food. Really, I...
I'm sure it was...
some kind of accident.
Don't you...
Maybe we should all just
get some rest,
and we'll talk in the morning.
And a fresh start.
Right? Yes. Let's all...
clear our heads, and...
You were right.
She's lost it.
No, I'm sure she's just...
She tried to fucking kill you.
Yeah, well...
What are we going to do?
I guess she needs help.
I also think that it is not safe
to stay here right now.
We can't just leave her here.
Maybe your uncle can
look after her?
I'm just gonna go
get some water.
Where should we go?
Please wake up.
Won't you please wake up?
Yeah, my dad never really
uses this place.
It's nice. It's quiet.
We don't have to stay for long.
Yeah, we'll figure it out.
Yeah. We'll figure it out.
Then we can move on...
once your leg is better.
What are you doing?
All right. Well...
I thought that I would try
to make osso buco tonight.
You have to eat something,
I ate.
How's your leg?
Okay, we have to go
to the doctor, please.
Why? My leg's fine.
I know it's fine,
but I mean, just...
Look at yourself.
Do I not look beautiful?
Yeah. Yes, you do.
You always do, I'm just...
I'm really worried about this.
You look...
Okay, I... I have to go
meet someone. Just...
Just stay, okay?
Just stay here.
- Hi.
- Thank you for coming.
Thank you. I can't believe
you came all the way. Thank you.
Of course, but listen.
I just don't understand.
So, you live here in the forest?
No, no, no.
We have...
We have, like, a house.
It's my dad's house,
a summer house.
Up here. Yeah.
So why don't we meet there?
I mean, this is a very strange
place to meet.
She doesn't know
that you're here.
- Mm-hmm.
- And also I...
I really want to talk
to you first.
Okay, so you told me that
she's... She's sick.
I don't know.
Something is just...
I've tried everything.
I've tried to take her
to a doctor.
I've tried to get her help.
But it's like...
It's like she's...
I don't know.
Just... not there.
Maybe we should
just go see her.
Where is she?
I told you to wait!
You promised
me you wouldn't tell her.
- Where is my daughter?
- Stop! Stop!
Stay away.
Okay, I saw what you did to her.
I'm so sorry, Ms. Maja, but...
There's something
you need to know.
Oh, I'm sorry.
I was just wondering
if you had seen my cat.
I haven't seen him since
yesterday morning.
I have had a picture made.
His name is Findus.
He's just one year old,
so he's my little "baby".
How far along are you?
Well... I should get going.
I saw your cat.
She was seven
when she started
having those tremors.
We thought it was epilepsy,
but the episodes
got ever more violent.
And she looked different.
She would get very angry.
And then one day...
she had a friend over.
A little girl who
lived down the road.
I could hear them playing.
it went strangely quiet.
They said it was an accident.
A game gone wrong.
It was no accident.
And it wasn't my Leah
who did it.
Please wake up!
- Who was it then?
- A Dybbuk.
A Dybbuk.
It's a dead soul
in a living host.
And this one, this particularly
cruel and evil one,
has possessed Leah
for many years.
That thing from the book?
That's what you think
is wrong with her?
I mean, we tried to exorcise
him when she was just a child.
But he wouldn't tell us who
he was or what he wanted.
And have you ever...
I don't know, have you ever,
like, mentioned this to Leah?
No, which was a mistake.
I warned you.
We can't keep it a secret.
We should have told her.
We should have told
her friends, too,
you know, before they did
something reckless
like run off
to some remote forest.
Okay, once again,
we don't live in the forest.
Okay? We have a house.
But with her and you
so far away,
it's hard for us to protect her.
I think it's very important that
we get to see her now, please.
If it's too late,
then we might have to try to...
No. No, we're not doing that.
It might be too late,
and there's enough of us here
to perform this...
- No. We're not...
- Okay.
I'll take you to her.
Yeah? Where is your car?
I don't even remember.
It's a very impractical place
for us to meet, this...
All these trees.
You know what?
Let me get my bike.
I'll walk you to the car.
And then you can follow me
up the road.
- Yes.
- I'll take you to the house.
Some parking lot
in that direction.
- Okay? Just go ahead.
- Tak.
Listen, we...
We really need to go, okay?
Why? I like it here.
Can you stop that, please?
You're not okay.
It's very hurtful
when you say that.
It makes me upset.
Something is really wrong.
Maybe it's because
you won't let me see my mum.
I miss my mum.
I'm sorry, okay?
But listen, we really...
We have to get out of here.
You just tore my life to
shreds, pretending you love me.
You're so sad.
You're just... aimless.
Your whole life is...
Isn't it?
It's too late to fix it now.
- You're too old.
- Stop it.
Better to break someone else's.
Hey, hey, hey.
Where are you?
Love you forever...
Ms. Maja?
Take it easy.
Slide over here.
Don't worry. It can't move.
Are you all right?
I'm so sorry that
you had to see this.
What happened to her?
She left home for too long.
Away from everyone and
everything that kept her safe.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry.
I didn't know that I...
I only did it
because I love her.
I know.
I know.
She was so happy.
When we had found a way
to keep him at bay...
and she had become herself
again, she was just so...
She had no memory
of what had happened.
She was just Leah.
I had my Leah back.
If she had known...
If she had known that
that thing was inside her...
just waiting to get out,
I would have never
seen her happy again.
We have to start now.
This is our last resort.
We hope it won't have
to come to this.
But we have to prepare...
a Soul Devourer.
It's this...
this black magic ritual.
We haven't really tried it
before, so...
Yeah, we'll start by creating
this holy ring,
and we'll use this bowl
to seal the ring.
Thus trapping the soul
within the circle.
Now Leah is fully under
the Dybbuk's control.
So that if the Dybbuk is
in the circle,
well, then that's who
the Devourer...
will... devour.
However, the ritual cannot
be interrupted once begun.
That's what it says.
Once my friends begin chanting
the Shemot, the names of God,
the Devourer will come
for a soul.
If one is not offered
in the circle,
it will look for souls
elsewhere, and...
We all die.
That's why we'll first try
and talk to it.
You know, the negotiation
with the Dybbuk...
to finally find out who he is
and what he wants.
It may not work. It has not
really in the past, so...
But we must try one last time.
Wake it up.
I see. Very exciting.
You're all here.
That's nice.
- Hold out your arm.
- Quiet.
I'm thinking.
Mummy. My favorite.
- Hold out your arm.
- I said, quiet!
You'd think being trapped
for 20 years would be dull.
Not with you.
I got to watch you
ruin your life.
If you knew how many of those
little routines and rituals
were a complete and utter
waste of time...
you'd want to die.
And, Maja...
You and I...
We were gonna have such fun.
Oh, well. Here you go.
Tell me who you are
and what you want.
This again?
Tell me who you are
and what you want.
I suppose I've forgotten.
You travel through
so many bodies,
you start to lose track.
Sorry to disappoint.
Tell me who you are
and what you want!
Are you not listening?
Tell me who you are
and what you want!
You want to know?
You want to know what I want?
Begin the ritual!
If I leave Leah in here,
then she is the one stuck
in the circle.
She'll die.
you stop the ritual,
in which case, you all die.
Either way...
I get what I want.
So, well done.
I couldn't have done it
by myself.
So long.
What's going on?
Maja, what...
No! Don't move!
Don't move. Just stay there.
What's going on?
Why can't I move?
Mummy, you're scaring me.
What's happening?
No. Stop it.
Stop it!
It's okay.
It's okay.
It's okay.
It's gonna be all right.
Mum? Mum? Mum?
Mum? Mum?
- All right, we're ready to go.
- Sorry. Let me get that.
No, it's fine. Just...
Just leave it.
I didn't bring any of her stuff.
Just like you asked me to,
but I...
I actually... I found...
Because it's funny.
- So...
- Yeah, I'm being avoidant.
Trying to.
You're not helping.
So, let's just laugh
at my hilarious joke
and get going.
I found this.
She'd be so annoyed if...
She must have been so upset
when she found it.
Ugh! I hate that I treated her
like such a nuisance.
- You know, I really think...
- Are we safe?
I promise. Okay?
I saw it leave you.
- It's gonna be okay.
- Mm-hmm.
Are you sure you don't want
to go back inside?
Just one last time? Okay.
I'm sure.
Let's just go.
All right.
I'll drop off the keys.
Oh, and also,
I'm confiscating this.
It's not a toy.
