Elephant (2022) Movie Script

How are you?
Are you ready?
Let's go then.
Hi, sister.
Being in Norway, you forgot about us.
I'm leaving the third message.
You're probably busy.
Call our mother.
It will make her well
if she hears you.
- Hello.
- Hi there.
Thank you.
Wait a second.
Just a moment.
Here you go.
- Thanks.
- Will you come in?
I can't.
Let's go.
Right here.
Hello there.
- 15 minutes.
- I'm sorry.
- Hey.
- Hello.
Only two weeks left in this shithole?
I'll be coming back.
Mister engineer. Congrats.
Unless they kick me out
after the first term.
They won't.
Everything all right?
What's up?
- Hello, student.
- Hi.
- Hi, bro.
- Hi.
Are you going with us?
- I have a crowd to serve.
- A herd of cattle, right?
Let's go guys.
Take care.
- Wait. I'll help you.
- It's okay.
Are you sure?
You know that we must sell them.
How do you picture it?
They will ruin us.
They'll earn for themselves
on sleigh rides in winter.
I will be giving riding lessons.
Don't be silly.
You barely manage the farm.
You won't build a real stud here.
I'll figure it out.
Give me time until winter.
Yes, that's right.
Please come.
Of course.
All right.
I walked him home yesterday.
He led a sad life.
His son left him around 15 years ago.
I don't remember him.
A delicious cake, Danusia.
You haven't eaten yet.
- What happened?
- Nothing.
Will you help me?
I have to change her.
Let's go.
That's it.
And to the bathroom.
- Right here. Yes.
- Here?
A few steps more.
What about his son?
I'll pick him up
from the station tomorrow.
That's the least I can do,
no matter his past.
I can pick him up.
A heart attack?
Did he live alone?
Stop the car.
Do it!
Come on here. Don't be afraid.
What happened to you?
Get the fuck out of here!
Should I call police?
Keeping a dog chained up is forbidden.
Let's go.
Fuck off or I'll call the police.
I'm wondering to whom they would listen.
- Is there a problem?
- Did anyone call you?
So, don't butt in.
Come on.
Let him chain himself to the kennel.
Nothing has changed here.
Hi. What can I get you?
- Two shots of vodka.
- 10 zlotys.
Thank you.
Do you want a lift?
No, thanks.
We're far away from everything.
I'll be fine.
What's your star sign?
Is that good or bad?
- Where are you headed?
- To a shop.
Good luck.
Having a stud
demands substantial funds
and hiring workers.
I obtained the funding
for young entrepreneurs.
Passion is the most important.
You must love it, because you need
to sacrifice your whole life to a stable.
So, it's true?
But what?
You're already bored.
I left my headphones in your car.
First, you need to help me.
I'll do more harm than profit.
We'll see.
Go out. Now.
Feed them.
Come on here.
They're shy.
His name is Elvis.
If Elvis sees
that Greta chases after Edi,
he'll know that
he must avoid Greta
because he can also be reprimanded.
Does each of them have a name?
They use warning signals.
When one doesn't like the other,
she won't warn her in case of a danger.
Clever beasts.
How long will you stay?
Yes, sure.
I'll go back after handling everything.
And you?
Let's go.
I won't get on it.
You can do it.
I can't. What don't you understand?
You'll see that it isn't hard.
What's her name?
Nice. Either way I won't do it.
Come here.
Hi, Absurd.
Give her some grass,
she has to like you.
She was hungry.
Now listen.
You grab the saddle with both hands,
your left leg in the stirrup,
and jump in.
Are we going?
Don't let go of her.
- Did you hear me?
- She can feel your fear.
The parliament will be voting
for a citizen bill Stop LGBT.
It covers a prohibition
of same-sex relationships,
organizing pride parades,
or questioning marriage
as a relation of a woman and a man.
140 thousand people signed this project.
Have you ever been on a plane?
A stupid question, you sure have.
A normal question.
Yes, I have.
Where were you recently?
Cold, right?
It was warmer than in Poland.
But sometimes it's so windy
that you have to leave your car
in the direction of the wind,
so it doesn't tear your door off.
You'd like it there.
It's like
another planet.
I could live there.
It's far away.
What's the difference?
What would you do there?
I could mind sheep.
May I smell you?
You smell nice.
I don't wear perfume.
I didn't mean to wake you.
Can you stop?
It's the middle of the night.
Do you remember it?
I used to love it when you were a child.
Stop it!
Go to bed.
This Dawid...
He left his father
when he needed him most.
Mother wasn't there,
father had a tough time.
And he?
He has done awful things.
Everyone was talking about him.
His father tried to set him right,
but he didn't manage.
One day that boy just simply left.
He stopped talking to him.
And how did it end?
That poor man died alone.
Where are you going?
To work.
- I know that you don't work today.
- I'll be back late.
Come here!
Won't you tell me, where you are going?
Whatever. Just go.
I'll clean the stable alone.
We won't have this problem
when I sell them.
You see.
Go ahead.
Let's shout.
Cancer's personality is unfathomable.
Passes through life dreaming
but often settles for a role
of a noble knight or a wise princess.
In a relation, Cancer is a gentle
and sensitive lover.
If he finds a partner worth full trust,
he will change in a sex machine.
My mum.
It isn't her fault.
There is no one else she could stay with.
My sister left for Norway
with her boyfriend when she turned 18.
What about your father?
He flew to the States
when we were little
and didn't come back.
Mum has never really recovered from it.
It was my job
to care about her, my sister,
and the farmstead.
I can't imagine running away.
Everyone leaves their nest one day.
Maybe I just don't want to leave?
Yes, maybe, but sometimes
it's nice to see what happens
when you leave this bubble.
What happened with you?
A temporary knockout.
Aren't you happy?
Overdrawn and unemployed.
I blew my deadlines off
and my concerts...
I came here without thinking.
Do you play professionally?
On what?
- Bass.
- Really?
It can't be as bad as you say.
I ran out of money
in the middle of the therapy.
They should provide us
with psychological funds after our birth.
Why did you leave him?
When I was ten, we were at a lake.
I swam too far
and started to sink.
My mother jumped in and drowned.
He was lying on the coast,
completely drunk,
and he didn't sober up
in the next ten years.
He blamed himself and me
Do you know what?
You're like your father.
The same.
Go to sleep.
You can't spend time with him.
Don't do it.
(I'm waiting for my headphones.
My train leaves in the evening.)
(I'll bring them tomorrow.)
You know that.
I have no interest in such things.
I'm old and I've never been nosy.
In contrast to those hags.
People talk about you.
What do they say?
I won't repeat it,
but please, be careful.
You know that I'll always help you.
For me, you may even be,
I don't know, an elephant.
- An elephant?
- Yes.
For example.
I'll never be an elephant.
If you were,
I wouldn't have any problem with it.
Wait a second.
Why is she calling you an elephant?
I don't know.
She's crazy.
I just like boys.
Keep on like that.
You've always been decent.
Take it.
It'll surely do no harm to you.
Do you hang out with fags now?
Are you a faggot?
I'm not.
You're a strong man.
No, I'm not.
Yes, you are.
You carry
a lot of things.
People can't take compliments.
You say: you look pretty.
Do I?
I love your hairstyle.
Really? I haven't washed
my hair for three days.
You look great today.
I know. Thank you.
It's partly because of you.
You look great too.
I haven't washed my hair for three days.
You're doing great too.
I'm trying.
I'm really fucking trying.
Do you want to dance?
What time is it?
I don't know. 2.00 pm.
- I need to go.
- Can't you stay?
For breakfast.
It's your last paycheck.
You don't work here anymore.
- What?
- Come on here.
Not here.
So where?
I made supper.
Come on in.
Let's go.
Sit down. I've got it.
We can finally talk.
- Thank you.
- Please.
You are not supposed to drink.
Do you see what it's like with him?
He's a good boy, isn't he?
It must be hard for you
after your father passed away.
It's nothing unusual.
Children should take care
about their parents.
Why is that?
You're here thanks to him.
Not everybody should have kids.
He has changed lately.
People change in their old age.
They somehow ease up.
When my father was passing
through the village,
dogs and neighbors were scared of him.
Later, his day has come.
One day
he entered our house, said.
I no longer want to live.
He went to his room, and died.
He left me the land.
I swore to myself
that I'd never sell it.
But I must do it.
With this money, you can build the stud.
We will buy new horses
and hire someone to help us.
However, you can't count
on your father's money.
I heard that
you'd put your house for sale already.
I expected you to run away quickly.
I will bring the main course.
We'll have a beautiful stud. You'll see.
Do you hear me?
I'm sorry.
It's okay.
Why didn't you say anything?
I wanted to make a surprise.
Won't you say hi?
What's this?
Look at it.
You'll be an uncle.
In May.
I can't see anything here.
A boy or a girl?
I don't know yet.
Where is Wojtek?
He'll come in a few days.
If you had told me,
I would've picked you up from the airport.
Tell him!
I'm staying for good.
I want to raise my baby in Poland.
How long could one stay
at someone else's place?
Wojtek may help you with the farmstead.
He won't come.
He won't come, will he?
He'll be here in a few days.
He left you.
She said that he'd come.
I told you what he was like.
You were right. Are you happy?
Fucking Wojtek.
- Maybe he'll come.
- Should I count on it?
You never know.
Let's go.
What are you...?
Well, well. Come on in.
- Is something wrong?
- No, Bartek.
Everything is fine.
What about the two of you?
Get the fuck out of here, faggot!
- Stop it!
- Fuck off!
- Fucking faggots!
- Stop!
Out of here!
You're dead!
What's that funny?
A screwed-up eye?
I'm totally fucked.
Not necessarily.
Maybe I'll tell her that I'm a fag?
Aren't you?
Put the ice on it.
I want to dance the night away
with you.
I won't let you go
even for a step.
I was waiting as in a dream
so that you embraced me,
and now you know
I want to dance the night away
with you.
Let them stare at us,
so what that they do?
Now everybody knows
that you love me too,
so, let's annoy them
and dance this night away
because life is too short.
Where can we dance here?
A fire depot?
A great idea. Let's go there.
They're obviously waiting for us.
Seriously, let's go somewhere far.
To get you out of here.
For this night I would give back
five the most beautiful years.
The one who dreams their happiness
does not count their days,
and that is why
I have such a will today.
I want to dance
the night away with you.
Have you ever played a game
where you close your eyes
and count to ten?
- Did you order a limo, sir?
- Which limo?
- Ten zlotys per person.
- Here.
And yours.
Are we coming back?
Not in front of my house.
Leave with me.
You don't understand.
It's you who don't understand.
I won't stay here.
You know where to find me.
What are these new habits?
Is our house a hotel now?
I'm going to church
if you wanted to join me.
Don't tell anybody about Wojtek.
We need to get it together.
What happened to you?
Where have you been?
I'm here now.
I cleaned the stable.
Whom is he for you?
A friend.
I know it isn't true.
- So, why are you asking?
- I want to hear it from you.
You won't leave me alone now, will you?
Have you thought about the situation
in which you put us?
She needs our help and not making
a laughingstock of us.
Why are you doing this?
I love him.
He's gone. It's fine already.
It isn't fine.
Listen. It's my house.
We'll never talk about it here.
The rumors will stop.
We'll show them that they aren't right.
But they are.
Stop it.
Your dad used to tell
that I'd make you...
Finish it.
What was that?
I'm calling the police!
Leave us alone!
Leave us in peace!
I'll not let anyone hurt you.
Go! Bye.
Come on.
No, no. Go!
Mum will kill us. Not to the house!
I will take care of her.
