Kler (2018) Movie Script

"Watch out for false prophets.
They come to you in sheep's clothing,
but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.
By their fruit you will recognize them."
Matthew 7:15-16
It was getting dark
When I saw some messengers arriving
I was still in the middle of ploughing
But I eagerly listened to them saying
They said: Mary's got a son
Mary's got a son
Mary's got a son
Mary's got a son
Mary's got a son
You managed to drag us out.
You weren't afraid at all, right?
To our miraculous rescue!
"He said to them,
'My house will be a house of prayer,
but you have made it 'a den of robbers."
The Gospel of St Luke, chapter nineteen,
verse forty-five to forty-eight.
"Don't try to prove your manhood
by how much you can drink.
Wine has been the ruin of many."
That's why I don't drink wine.
- He doesn't know!
- He doesn't know!
The Wisdom of Sirach.
Chapter thirty-one verse twenty-five.
Do you know the best part of the story?
one year before the miracle
was proclaimed
they called for a tender
to build a parking place
for forty coaches.
Praise the Lord...
- ...bucks and gold.
- ...bucks and gold.
Tell me something.
Aren't you good here?
- On the contrary.
- Why Rome then?
What do we do?
Thirteen seconds!
It's a home run!
What are you doing here?
I came to Father Kukula.
Mrs Nowak's dying.
I'm going in vain again.
She's supposed to die today.
- Do you need a lift?
- No, I've got my bike.
Your father's drinking again?
It's OK.
Mary's got a son...
Fuck, you must have seen it...
And who's got the banks?
Who the fuck has the banks?
- I'm not saying it's Jews.
- ...and Toru.
Praised be Jesus Christ.
Now and for ever.
Through this holy anointing
may the Lord in his love and mercy,
infinite mercy,
help you with the grace
of the Holy Spirit.
- Amen.
- Amen.
Formed by divine teaching we dare to say:
Our Father, who art in Heaven...
A funeral parlour.
Trustworthy and I can recommend them.
Let go of me!
- What are you doing?
- Calm down.
Stop it! Now!
What's it all about?
Sgt Madecki, District Police Department.
You've been reported
to disturb quiet hours.
- Your IDs!
- But it's OK now, isn't it?
Your ID and car documents, Father.
He ripped off my mirror.
Give me your ID!
And the breathalyser for Father
'cause he's been driving drunk.
There's a misunderstanding at my church.
It's Stg Madecki.
Talk to him.
Inspector Bury wants to speak with you.
- But...
- The card...
Yes, Sir.
God be with you.
Get it!
You'll buy a new one.
What am I supposed to do?
- I'll move the car.
- What am I...
We'll talk later.
...and it occurred he had a wife.
And I got scared I wouldn't manage myself.
And I killed my unborn child.
And what was its name?
Whose name?
The child's name.
But, Father...
All right.
Your penance will be ten "Our Fathers"
and ten "The Hail Marys".
And "The Chaplet of Divine Mercy".
Leave it!
You promised you wouldn't drive drunk.
I've killed a hare.
Go to bed!
Bring Zajdel over!
The car needs fixing, right?
How are you going to go
to school like that?
I'm OK.
- Has Jan called?
- Yes, he has.
He said his mother was getting better
and he would be back a day after tomorrow.
Of course it's good.
People start talking he's got a woman
and that's why he's always away.
What is it?
Praised be Jesus Christ.
GBP don't agree.
What do you mean they don't agree?
Who's responsible for that?
Rabczynski, but he won't pick up
the phone.
So find him and make him
bring the geologist over.
The mass is in a week and
it'll be broadcast all over Poland.
I can't do anything about that.
Limos can't come closer than 100 metres
provided it doesn't rain.
Have you ever seen an archbishop
walking in mud?
And what if the president's wife
is going to wear high heels?
Those examinations sucked.
The geologist carried them out
when it was dry.
He wrote the ground couldn't get wet.
The contractor didn't secure it.
It's your fault.
Our fucking fault? Forgive me, Father!
Our fault?
You must remove mud
and build the road to the altar.
Substructure's made of crushed aggregate.
I can't I'll pour lean concrete on it.
Do you have any fucking road
in these plans?
If that comes out, I'll go to prison,
not you, or Father.
Later, you can tear off the asphalt
and there will be no trace of any road.
The good of the Church requires
to bypass the regulations.
I don't know. We must put at least
two layers of asphalt here,
prepare everything, empty the dumper,
bring over two rollers...
- remove the ground, right?
- Yeah.
How much?
Eight by one hundred fifty.
I don't know...
...a thousand square metres?
How much money?
Praised be Jesus Christ.
You called for me, Father.
I've got a problem.
I was coming from dinner
at a fellow priest's.
We hanged out a bit longer and
a hare or deer jumped out on the road.
I didn't manage to swerve.
How much?
The headlight, bumper, mirror...
Wouldn't it be better to change the car
after Christmas pastoral visits?
At least...
...a thousand.
And five hundred.
We can make a deal.
OK, but take the car in the evening
so that people don't talk.
- Praised be Jesus Christ.
- Now and for ever.
What brings you here?
- We must...
- We'd like to get married.
Wait a minute.
We'll need to speed up
pre-marital counselling to avoid scandal.
But how?
I have no time slots.
I've got money.
I'll pay.
As you can see our parish is poor.
Drainpipes must be changed.
Do you know how much they cost now?
Two thousand.
As much as a wedding.
I won't charge much for the baptism.
You're young. Give as much as you can.
- Praised be Jesus Christ.
- Now and for ever.
- Are we playing today?
- When will you return my slingshot?
When you win.
Rudy! Pass it here!
Come and play with us.
...two, three, four, five.
The line is here. Stand here.
Make a nice wall and cover yourselves.
Now! Go on!
Stop! Once again!
Give it here!
Why didn't Rysiek play?
Thank you for calling back, Tomek.
I need some asphalt... for tomorrow.
I get it... not over the phone.
I'll drop by. God be with you.
Miracles are your domain, not ours.
Everything went for Balice.
How much if we skip invoices?
A hundred and twenty.
But in cash and today.
A priest is walking down the street
and he sees some shit.
"Damn it, I said "shit",
Fuck, I said "damn it".
Fuck it, I didn't want to be
a priest anyway.
- Praised be Jesus Christ.
- Now and for ever.
Can we have a word?
What's the problem with the building site?
A problem? It's a little damp there.
The mass isn't jeopardised. Let's talk.
If the EU withdraws the grants
for missing the deadline, we're fucked.
Soon, I'll need 150 grand for the road
substructure and asphalt. In cash.
How am I going to get it?
The engineer blew it. Morda chose him
so he should give the dough.
Otherwise, fucking forget about the mass.
...once when lying on the beach in Nice
I felt hatred for birds
which wanted to make holes
in one of my greatest works.
- Praised be Jesus Christ.
- Praised be Jesus Christ.
And when I was still at seminary...
How is the Church going to react to further
accusations of child abuse by priests?
Maybe I'll be able to help with...
I'd eschew any inelegant
manipulations with facts
implying an attack
attempted by anti-clerical circles.
We are talking about singular,
isolated, and even
unsubstantiated incidents.
- ...the desks and daybeds...
- Archbishop Spec,
priest from Tluszcz and Kobylka,
Duczki, Radzymin, Saska Kepa...
A priest from Kamionek...
Tylawa, Tarchomin...
We sometimes err, let evil tempt us,
provoke us.
The Church is holy,
but it's made
of sinful people.
And I wanted to ask about the
progress in the construction
Desks too? Thank God!
You're irreplaceable, Father.
of the Sanctuary
and the Centre of Thought.
The works are meeting the deadlines.
Now we're during the foundations stage
and finishing the tender
for heating installations...
...does this film
have any catholic values?
- So who gave money for it?
- One word, Father.
- So who gave money for it?
- One word, Father.
I'm writing an article about
manipulating tenders.
The conference is finished.
I have no time. Excuse me.
In the tender for IT equipment
for the Catholic Schools Complex
supervised by your foundation
the ordering party demanded
particular specifications.
What is your point?
Only one company on the market
had such a set in their offer.
Why did the foundation overpay
and where are all the computers
which never made it to the school?
I don't remember the details.
I would have to check that.
I have no time now. Excuse me.
I'm giving you two days, Father,
then the article will be printed
with or without your comment.
...when he needed votes
he was always available
and now, when he's been elected,
you're sending me a deputy prime minister.
What the fuck is this?
What the fuck is this?
The head of state must come to the mass!
The good of the Church requires that!
God be with you.
How much?
Fundraisers for hospitals brought almost
ninety-three thousand,
- and the fees...
- How much more do we need?
Forty-eight thousand, two hundred.
Praised be Jesus Christ.
What's the weather like in Rome?
Now and for ever.
It's sunny,
but I don't have good news.
Yes, Monsignore.
Archbishop Mordowicz
is blocking your transfer to Vatican.
Yesterday, we got a letter from him
in which he informs us
that he needs you in the diocese.
I'm sorry.
The post in the congregation
is still waiting for you, Father.
Let's keep in touch.
Of course.
Two metres by two or four by four?
A double or a single one?
A smaller one. Single.
Be quiet!
Naughty boys!
There is a plot, unpaid for
and abandoned.
It'll have been twenty years
in half a year.
At the central alleyway.
How much?
The sums vary.
Last week, someone paid me a visit
of a similar nature. And...
...I have here...
And this someone gave me...
...he gave...
one thousand...
...two thousand.
But for a worse plot
'cause at the wall.
If the Christ from Rio de Janeiro
is thirty-eight metres high,
and the one from Jaslo only thirteen,
how high is the Christ from Swiebodzin
with the assumption that
the Christ from Swiebodzin
will stand on the head
of the one from Jaslo
and together they will be eleven metres
higher than the one from Rio?
Rysiek, take the broom and come with me.
I want this solved when I'm back.
Let me see!
We'll be right with you, Ala.
...then Little Red Riding Hood
met the wolf.
- Praised be Jesus Christ.
- Now and for ever
Boys, thank Father Leszek.
He's brought you gifts.
God bless you!
What's your name?
- Aren't you happy with the gift?
- I'm afraid I'm going to die.
everybody will meet Jesus one day,
me too.
But you're old, and I'm not.
Jesus loves some people so much
that he would like to meet them
quicker than others.
He'll take them to his heavenly home,
so that they wouldn't have to
suffer here, on earth.
You masturbate, right?
Yes, I do.
Don't worry.
He stopped beating me.
He doesn't love me anymore.
In a sacramental marriage
God sometimes puts us to the test.
Trust God humbly,
and first seek guilt in yourself.
...therefore, we fully become humans
when we truly love
when a woman loves a man,
and when a man loves a woman.
And this love is at the origin of
the community,
longing for closeness
to God
or to another human being,
and longing for ordinary closeness.
The donations of clothes for the poor,
but washed clothes,
bring to the sacristy
every day after the evening mass.
From this wretched land,
This valley of tears,
To Heaven we raise
Our yearning cries.
O, Divine Heart,
Our only treasure!
Hear our sinful
Hearts lament.
Please, accept
Our prayer...
Jesus Christ!
Be careful!
Let's go!
- You can't get in, Father.
- Oh, come on!
You aren't allowed in here, Father.
- Doctor!
- Not now.
- Good evening.
- How's the boy?
We're waiting for the test results.
- How could you do this to me?
- I'm sorry.
- You thought I'd never find out?
- I didn't know.
But who told you to read it?
Who told you?
Are you OK?
The phone... I wanted to puke
and it fell in.
And you know the best part of the story?
That a year before the miracle
was proclaimed
they called for a tender to build
a parking place for a hundred coaches.
I don't know if it's gonna work.
I'm pregnant.
...didn't you take any precautions?
My faith didn't allow me.
I'm here for the car.
Come here.
This is director Romanski
and director Czekaj from PZPC.
Their company is going to win the tender.
How much is it to be?
It's confidential, Your Excellency.
You were saying?
You're mumbling today.
I suppose it's six million
without thirty thousand.
God be with you!
Hey, you! Play!
Here you are.
Be careful, it's hot.
Next one, please.
Excuse me.
- I wanted to ask about Ryszard Malinowski,
- Information is given by the practitioner.
- The boy who was brought here yesterday.
- He's not here now.
I want to know what's going on
with the boy!
- Go away from the window, please.
- I'm not going anywhere
- until you tell me how he is!
- Next one, please.
Today, we're going to read
about Eucharist.
My father says that we could
read the Epistle of Paul
to Timothy and find out
that St Paul tells bishops
and ordinary priests to have a wife.
Indeed, the first Epistle to Timothy says
about abstinence, which the Roman Church...
Is that true that an altar boy passed
out during your mass?
...elevated to the highest rank
by imposing celibate on priests.
When women start claiming money
for children, the Church will go bankrupt.
My father says that homosexual acts
occur among all species,
but no known animal lives celibate.
This is against nature!
Your father is against nature, you moron!
What's going on here?
Praised be Jesus Christ!
New drainpipes.
A gift from the faithful.
Now and for ever.
Can we have a word?
Well, what am I going to
collect money for now?
Well... it's about having it fixed,
It's about collecting it and not
about having it collected, you fool!
I'm sorry.
It's just that...
you must get rid of it.
You bastard!
I don't have good news.
We are not going to win the tender.
I had the impression,
and you let me believe it, Father,
that our deal is, de facto, finalised.
Yes, I know, but the circumstances
have changed.
Of course I will give the car back
- and fix the window...
- You didn't understand me, Father.
I'm waiting for good news till
the end of the week. God be with you.
What is nephron sparing surgery?
It spares renal parenchyma.
You don't cut out the whole kidney,
but only its fragments.
Not everyone is fit for it.
How much does it cost?
They do it best in Mainz,
but National Health Service
doesn't refund it.
The operation, stay in the clinic,
chemo, convalescence...
Roughly speaking,
two hundred thousand euros...
Praised be Jesus Christ.
Praised be Jesus Christ.
Here you are.
I promised you, and here it is...
with the Holy Father's signature.
The Holy Father...
- Thank you for remembering, Father.
- Don't mention it.
By the way, Edward,
could you do me a favour?
Bad people are trying to mess with
the construction of the sanctuary.
I need help.
Well, it's great!
What's it all about?
What did he do?
Why all this show with the police car?
Have a seat.
The doctor examined your altar boy
and reported a possible crime.
The judge interrogated the boy in the
presence of the prosecutor and psychologist
who stated that the boy
might have been raped by a clergyman.
Did you do it?
How long have we known each other, Janusz?
Did you buttfuck him?
No, I didn't.
Will you agree for DNA examination and
taking a sample from under your foreskin?
Do you know how he lives
and who visits this place?
How many times has his step-father
been in custody?
Yes or no?
How are you?
What the fuck are you doing here?
Why the fuck are you here?
What the fuck... motherfucker!
You'll talk about it tomorrow.
God be with you.
Edward sends me.
During the times
of Polish People's Republic
the Fourth Department of Security Service
ran, so called, group "D".
It operated within Section Six.
It specialised in attacking priests:
kidnapping, beatings
and torture.
At least one priest lost his life
as a result of those actions.
What does it have to do with PZPC?
Marek Czekaj.
He used to be a boxer then.
He trained in the militia club Gwardia
and even won a medal at
the Olympic Games in Moscow.
You can do with it what you want, Father
- provided...
- Provided...?
A church divorce for my daughter...
The Church does not discriminate anyone;
however, we need to remember
that nothing will grow from manure.
- That's why...
- I'm leaving you.
- it is obvious that the Church
- Two thousand.
should spread its care over families...
You aren't listening!
You fucking drunk, I need
two fucking thousand
to be rid of your fucking bastard.
Can you hear me?
...negating the structure of love,
which means a sacramental marriage
of a man and a woman
in their equal dignity
and unique, constantly discovered
complementarity of its components:
the male and the female one.
A healthy family enriches you.
Praised be Jesus Christ.
Now and for ever.
I'm coming with a pastoral visit.
- Power!
- Power!
Zakrzewski Adam, Zakrzewska Bozena...
...Zakrzewska Anna.
No need to change batteries.
She's not a devoted Catholic.
She's divorced,
doesn't accept pastoral visits.
19 Wojtowska Street, flat 67.
- Is your mum home?
- Yes, she is.
Go back to your room and play, Mati.
How do you know my address, Father?
May I come in?
Yes, Computer World bribed me
to manipulate the tender.
They gave me game consoles.
Every single one of them together
with the "missing" computers
were given to children from care
facilities and the oncological hospital.
You can check that.
Anyway, the hospital authorities
owe me something.
There is a possibility of sending one
child for renal tumour surgery to Germany.
Have you heard of NSS?
Mainz is too expensive for me.
The Curia has money.
But you have to do one thing for me.
What now?
We have to report it.
They'll dig the whole place over!
The prosecutor will stop all the works.
There is another one.
Jews or recent ones?
How much?
Fifty metres from the altar.
Twenty-five thousand for the manager and
the same for the digger operator
and they'll sign a statement
that digging them up and not letting
the issue go public was their own decision
taken in order not to undermine
the construction of the sanctuary.
He has to say...
Listen to me!
He has to say that any attack
on the Church means attack on Poland.
...our dear Archshepherd please accept...
...this very crosier, a modest symbol of
a shepherd's power and may it be a symbol
of our devotion and brotherly love.
Gold yet modest.
Fourteen thousand euro for a chasuble...
- Is your mother any better?
- Yes.
And what do you do in your life?
I'm bored as a rule.
I live my life.
I bring up my daughter.
And what about her father?
How did you get those scars?
What do people in the village say
about their priest? Cool or uncool?
Cool, but you drink too much.
Loneliness, Death's cruel sister.
They're crooked.
What are you thinking about?
What are you thinking about?
That I'm a shepherd who,
out of many sheep, loves one most.
Hi, Zosia.
Is your mum home?
- Praised be Jesus Christ.
- Now and for ever. I'm looking for Hanka.
I thought she's with you.
When she's back, send her to me
there's plenty of work.
I don't believe you did it, but people...
Be careful, Father.
- Praised be Jesus Christ, Jan.
- Now and for ever.
We must report it to the police.
No need to.
How's your mother?
Doctors say she's better.
They discharged her yesterday. Thank you.
What are you doing, Szymon?
Am I supposed to bless toilet bowls?
Are they crazy?
They'll give 25 thousand
for the sanctuary.
When would that be?
Force through the Sejm the enthronement of
Christ as the King of Poland,
request for Most Blessed Virgin Mary's,
Queen of Poland,
assistance and intercession
and a call for a common prayer
in the National Rosary Crusade.
Plus a chapel in every office
and a total ban on abortion
in the Constitution.
But the Constitution...
With all due respect, dear MP,
now I'm talking.
I'd humbly ask to speed up
the procedure
of transferring the claimed lands
and real estate in the city centre
- back to the Church.
- And who the fuck knows what else.
That's not the end of good news.
A family from Germany.
They'll come to see him.
The coffin is already in the church.
- Something happened?
- No.
Our new business cards.
Maybe I'll take the funeral?
I'd rather you heard confessions.
Through Jesus Christ, who is our
Resurrection and Life,
pray to merciful God to listen to
our prayers and supplications.
Lord, hear our voices raised in prayers.
Lord, hear our prayers.
Let us pray for departed Zofia Nowak,
whom our Lord commanded
to pass out of this world,
that He will bid her be partaker
with His Saints.
...perpetual light shine upon her...
Have mercy on me, O God,
according to your steadfast love;
according to your abundant mercy
blot out my transgressions.
Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity
The procurator and psychologist came,
but I don't know anything.
They questioned the boy,
that's all I know.
- Eternal...
- Paedophile!
...rest grant unto her, O Lord
and let perpetual light
shine upon her.
For I know my transgressions
and my sin is ever before me
...through the merits of Jesus Christ
thine only Son our Lord.
Queen, mother of mercy,
Our life, sweetness, and hope, hail.
To thee do we cry,
Poor banished children of Eve.
To you we sigh,
Mourning and weeping
In this valley of tears.
Turn then, our advocate,
Those merciful eyes toward us.
And Jesus, the blessed fruit...
- Praised be Jesus Christ.
- Now and for ever.
Are you a paedophile, Father?
Leave her alone!
Look at him! Paedophile!
Didn't I tell you?
- Paedophile!
- Paedophile!
- You paedophile!
- For Christ's sake!
- What are you doing?
- What?
- Paedophile!
- Paedophile!!
What?! What am I doing?
- Come on, folks!!
- Paedophile!
Stop it!
Have some respect!
It's my mother's funeral!
He's over there!
The other side!
He's over there! Let's get him!
Get him!
Where is he?
Get out, you children fucker!
- Maybe he is on the other side.
- Let's check the other side.
Let's go to church!
He's fucking run away!
- Paedophile!
- Paedophile!
What have you done?
Look at me when I'm talking to you!
Show it!
Which moron is responsible
for discipline in this room?
I am, Sister.
What is the punishment for
soaking the bedsheet?
What do the regulations say?
Now, we're gonna have bum fun...
Freedom is a foundation,
and the foundation must be solid.
One must build on a rock.
One can't stand with one foot on a pier
and the other one in a boat.
A man has to define himself.
"All things are lawful for me,
but not all things are helpful.
All things are lawful for me,
but I will not be enslaved by any."
Metropolitan Curia in Cracow...
You've reached
a private gynaecological clinic.
For Polish press two.
My car is ready, right?
Yes, but the paintwork was more expensive.
There were more cases like that
in the hospital.
Two years ago they brought a boy from
a care facility run by
the Convent of
St Mary the Lord's Handmaid.
And what about the police?
They weren't informed.
It never came to light.
Medical records went missing and
the doctor who treated the boy
got a contract abroad.
Why are you telling me that?
Because I know you're innocent, Father.
How do you know that?
The boy was brought on 15 August.
I even remember his name,
Marek Tomasik.
And on 15 August you were on a pilgrimage.
I know because I was to go too,
but my husband got ill
and then he died.
They called from the Curia. They want you
to meet Archbishop tomorrow.
Maybe it's good because people
keep gathering at the church.
...I realised that we're judging reality
we know nothing about.
You spent six years at seminary and
you don't know whether it's your way?
We're calling for preaching
which would not be soft
but firm and solid.
If it is soft, we're going to have
the same situation as in the West.
Good morning. How can I help you?
Hanna Tomala.
Is she here?
I'm sorry, we don't give any information.
She called you, you can check.
I really cannot tell you that.
I'm afraid I can't.
What are you doing! You can't go there!
Sir! You can't go in there!
What are you doing? You can't go in there!
What the fuck!?
Get the fuck out of here!
Who let him here? Who?
I'm sorry. Goodbye.
Yes, Your Excellency, I've read it.
OK, I'll be there.
Sixteen million
from our taxes down the toilet...
What fucking tickets?
- Take off your fucking cap!
- Fuck off!
When the state stops financing the Church
from the taxes and the faithful start...
Dear Passengers, we're about to reach
Krakow Glowny...
Collect your bags.
- Whose bag is this?
- Mine.
- Whose is this one? Take it.
- It's mine.
Do you go to football matches?
Get out of the car.
Are you coming or not?
Marek Czekaj, a boxer, and his career
in the Security Service.
What the fuck is this?
I'm asking you! What the fuck is this?!
They can't win our tender
for heating installations.
Sit here and wait.
Bless, O Lord, Thy gifts and
our poor brothers and sisters who will...
- Your Excellency...
- Run!
We kindly ask you
to pour the first portion.
Come over here!
Come here!
Could we imagine a more Christian
and Evangelical deed?
One at a time!
What a Jewish bitch wrote it!
She needs a lot of money
to cure her son in Germany.
If Your Excellency pulls
some charity strings...
What then?
...her child will go for treatment,
to Germany,
and she won't write about
the residence in Mazury.
How does she know about Mazury?
Your Excellency, I don't know if this is
a good moment,
but I wanted to talk about my
departure to Vatican again.
This is not a good moment, Lisowski.
This is fucking not a good moment!
- FatherAndrzej Kukula from...
- Wait!
- Have the president's people called?
- Yes.
- The helicopter?
- Yes, the helicopter.
Everything is back as it should be,
your company's going to win the tender.
There is one issue though.
You better don't fuck with me!
Someone has to finance a basketball court
for children from a care facility.
The cost is around
fifty thousand.
No problem.
I was told about what happened
in your parish.
It's not true.
Of course, it's not true.
It's not true. However...
...we'll have to remove you from
the sight of hateful eyes.
We must think about the good of
the Church.
Therefore, you'll go the facility for
retired priests in Pyzdry.
You'll pray it over...
- And if I don't agree?
- ...until...
this unnecessary disturbance stops.
Breakfast is at 7:00 a.m.,
dinner at 1:00 p.m. and supper at 6:00 p.m.
The club-room is on the first floor
and the chapel's at the end of
the corridor.
On the premises of the facility
alcohol is strictly forbidden.
God be with you.
I can do nothing else but
to hear people's confessions.
I won't support you in any other way.
It's up to you,
but not less than four hundred.
More devoted and pious parishioners
give five or eight hundred zlotys.
When do you want to bury him?
We don't know because...
...it means...
...we must wait until we get the body...
...from the autopsy.
He was hit by a car.
Three days ago.
He was going fishing.
At dawn.
Where was that?
Near the road. Around two kilometres
from the turn to Bajdy.
Past the shrine.
- He was the only provider for the family.
- Mum...
We're so hard up now.
Go now.
I won't take any money from you.
You're a good man, Father.
And if you are a good man,
you're a good priest too.
Go now.
The truth cannot hurt anyone.
The Church doesn't like criticism.
By not showing evil and harm,
I won't give the Church a chance
to see this evil that's eating at it.
He was preached about as
the one who threatens...
Where did we lose this loving God?
The artist who cares about his work?
May I?
...but... I don't want faith...
Andrzej Kukula.
Good Heavens!
Long time no see!
...and when I reached
that point when I puked
from the pulpit during
the Midnight Mass
I decided to go to rehab.
And now I'm gonna make it.
May God be my witness!
I've visited our parish recently.
You know Piotrek hanged himself?
The Stachs' son?
And Tomczak is gone too.
He drank himself to death.
But they have a very good parson now.
He's young and wise.
Why are you telling me all that?
Maybe you want to know what
happened with the old one.
He's here.
Room 28.
There's nothing wrong
in playing with willies.
I'm a priest, I know that.
After over thirty years from
the alleged incident,
you decided to sue a priest?
What do you mean "alleged"?
I was twelve, I remember everything.
You'll have to swear on the Holy Bible.
Are you ready to bear the burden of
the priest's possible tragedy?
I'm sorry, whose tragedy?
You're ruthlessly attacking
Christ's church. Why?
For media plaudits?
But... he abused me many times.
Unfortunately Father Janusz will have to
sue you for defamation because
in your letter to the Curia
you called him "a paedophile".
Yes, I did.
Please, remember
that many priests
falsely accused of molesting children
tried to take their lives.
What are you doing?
For God's sake!
What are you doing?
Swear to your mother and father's lives
that you won't tell a soul about it.
I swear.
Do you recognise me?
Say: "I swear before God".
If you don't keep your word,
you'll burn in hell.
The archbishop wrote a letter
in which he instructed the faithful
to pray for the harassed priest.
Father Michal gave me vodka with juice,
I felt sick, I wanted to puke
and then he touched my genitals
and started to masturbate me.
He was only in his dressing gown,
he was masturbating.
I was ten then.
I went to confess
to another priest...
I vividly remember him saying
how important it was to keep silent.
In the light of law
the cases are past due.
They wouldn't do anything to
those priests anyway.
I called the Curia
to find out where this...
- Who recorded it?
- ...priest was...
Ajournalist from Holland.
Every religion lesson started from...
He drew the curtains, grabbed my hands...
Don't shout, then it won't hurt more.
And what about the money?
I took some from the alimony fund.
We'll have to deal with
Father Marian somehow.
I was nine then.
The journalist said he also molested
my mother when she was a child.
He did it all the time.
Everybody knew about it...
Good job, Teodor.
It's a really great job.
It's Father Kukula,
praised be Jesus Christ.
This blind boy...
maybe there are still some documents
at the emergency department.
Will you check that?
You could always count on me
just like today, couldn't you?
Sure I could.
When you were in Rome
I bought that cassette for you too.
You said you destroyed it.
Yes, I destroyed it,
...but I'm getting retired in a year,
and I don't want to spend my last years
in the facility for priest.
Do I forbid you anything, Teodor?
I deserve a severance pay.
Trust in God.
Trust in God.
I invest all my money in the sanctuary.
Not for myself...
Not for myself.
I need a flat.
you're in candid camera!
"God the Father of heaven,
have mercy on us.
God the Son, Redeemer of the world,
have mercy on us."
I wanted to speak with you, Father.
But not here.
Two rooms.
Three would be even better.
Zosia is already big and
the child will grow fast.
And I saw the kitchen in a catalogue.
Brown but, you know, classy.
Hey! Eat it!
And we need a juicer to mash soup
for children...
Hanka, stop talking for a while.
Why are you so dazed today?
- Praised be Jesus Christ.
- Now and for ever.
Due to investigative measures
we are checking all vehicles
with navy blue paintwork owed by
local residents.
- Follow me.
- We've already seen it.
And just out of formality:
where were you on the night
of 12th to 13th?
What do you mean "where"?
At the presbytery. You're asking a priest.
- Goodbye.
- God be with you.
- God be with you.
- God be with you.
What have you done, Tadek?
So, this is your apartment, Father.
lf Archbishop Mordowicz agrees
for my departure to Rome, I won't need it.
What is your point, Father?
All that can be yours.
As a life lease.
What do you want me to do in return?
A fellatio?
When you were in Rome
I bought that cassette for you too.
You said you destroyed it.
Morda will never give you that much.
He won't give you anything at all.
I'm giving you until tomorrow,
and then I withdraw my offer.
I trust
only one bank.
I don't know its name...
In the course of
preliminary proceedings...
...no priests were charged.
The proceedings were carried out following ...
May I?
...the guidelines
from the prosecutor's office
which provided material and legal
supervision over the investigation.
I find no deficiencies.
The case will be dismissed. Thank you.
He's innocent.
The only victim of this smear campaign
is the oppressed priest.
- How is he?
- He had a nervous breakdown.
You can see it yourselves.
It's so easy to torment a priest.
Praised be Jesus Christ, Father Lisowski.
Now and for ever.
I'm Schmidt. Gnter Schmidt.
Hi, I'm Bettina Schmidt.
Praised be Jesus Christ.
We're sorry. Our plane was delayed.
It's OK.
Let us go.
- Praised be Jesus Christ.
- Is anyone of you Marek Tomasik?
He's Tomasik, Father.
Don't disturb the priest.
Praised be Jesus Christ.
Now and for ever.
Did you call me, Father?
Who sent you here?
I have some reasons to suppose that
something happened to this boy.
- That someone hurt him.
- You'd better...
15 August!
- You'd better look after your own parish.
- 15 August two years ago.
One day latter he was in hospital.
Go away, Father.
And I'll inform the Curia about
your intrusive behaviour.
German children are very tolerant.
- Praised be Jesus Christ.
- Praised be Jesus Christ.
Is everything OK with the documents?
Mr Schmidt is asking about the documents.
Everything is perfectly OK.
Everything's OK.
Krzys, are you happy you're going to
your new home?
Mrs Schmidt is asking...
It should be enough for daybeds and desks.
Thank you for having listened to me
the other day, Father.
The Church is meant to be a community,
but when one has a problem,
there's no one to talk to.
I'll come back on foot.
Was it him?
Did he give you the console
and the TV set?
You can tell me.
I know what you think,
but I didn't do it.
The good of the Church requires
not to interfere with matters
which may bring misfortune to all of us.
Do you remember that fire?
I saved your life.
God be with you.
And what about the child?
What about me?
Before I give you my blessing,
I want to tell you something important.
Please, sit down.
I'll tell you a story about a boy
who spent all his childhood
at a presbytery.
His mother was a housekeeper there.
Give me oil in my lamp, keep me burning
- Give me oil in my lamp, I pray
- It was a hard time in Poland.
Martial Law and crisis,
but the parson was very generous
for the boy's family.
The Church used to receive aid
from the West.
Every week the boy's family would receive
gifts from the priest.
And then, one day
the priest gave the boy
something to drink.
A bit later, the boy
couldn't control his body,
and then the priest hurt him for
the first time.
I swear before God.
The boy would go to the rapist priest for
another two years.
For two years the parson
tormented and artfully intimidated him.
Talked about deadly sin
hearing his confessions
and absolving him
at the same time.
The boy told his mum about everything
then went to boarding school
and entered theological seminary.
He thought he'd come to terms
with his past.
God be with you.
When finally this nation united
with Jesus,
this Polish nation entrusted to St Mary
shouted out: "We want freedom!"
God! Thou surrounded Poland
for so many centuries
with the grandeur
of might and glory,
and with the shield of
your almighty protection
from all ill fortunes...
Fucking go behind the armchair!
Get up!
You're a pussy!
I've killed a man.
Inspector isn't here.
Five days ago.
His name was Grzelak.
What can I do?
Come in the morning, Father, OK?
He's sober.
I told him, but he won't go.
Yes, Sir.
I've already told you it was a hare
and that's why...
...you secretly had the headlight,
bumper and the mirror fixed?
No, the mirror happened earlier.
I saw nothing for it was raining and...
For goodness sake!
I was drunk.
You'll go to the Curia
and leave the letter for the archbishop.
And then if you want,
you can go to your mother.
What about my wedding now?
Remember that as long as you help people
you're a god priest.
God be with you.
God be with you.
The place doesn't match.
We took samples of paintwork
and it doesn't match either.
You got lucky and hit a dog.
You're free, Father.
God be with you!
Adam Biedron. Truly Polish vigil candles.
A pious hero.
Seat him behind the president,
let him enjoy the moment.
- Wesolowski.
- In the front.
- Professor Duczynski.
- Fuck Duczynski.
He's acted a smart guy recently.
The state-church relations.
A fucking specialist.
Mail, Your Excellency.
One letter marked as confidential.
From Father Kukula. He wilfully left
the facility in Pyzdry.
Do as you wish,
but I don't make me look at him.
- Your Excellency,
- Write it down:
- our Most Reverend Sheppard...
- Duczynski, third raw.
...it is with the deepest regret and
a broken heart that I'm writing to you
because I am to write
about horrible things.
I never thought I would be forced to raise
such difficult and painful a subject;
the subject of sins and
trespasses against children
committed by one of my brothers in faith.
Are you still doing karate?
Stop the atrocities
against innocent victims.
Come on!
Let's go!
I know that the good of the Church,
our Mother and Carer,
is very important to you.
I know the identity of at least
two of his victims.
When were you supposed to be here?
Yesterday, right!?
- Easy on the gas!
- Push!
Come here, Lisowski!
Come here, you moron!
What is this?
Do you know what it is?
Don't you have anything to do?
Get lost! Now!
Due to the significance and scale...
I'm forced to inform about
Father Lisowski's deeds...
Do you know what it is?
You're going with me.
I'm sending the copy of this very letter
to national and local newspapers
and magazines.
I'm doing this for I know
I'm turning against
a powerful and influential priest
who is able to silence
any unfavourable opinions.
You're finished.
The Church will not help you out.
Are you sure, comrade Piglet?
Many cases of molestation could be avoided
if the relationship between parents
were healthy.
Don't smash him.
Don't place nails in his hands...
This inappropriate attitude or abuse
often manifests itself
when a child is looking for love.
Libelling Father Lisowski
will be perceived
as a personal attack on
Archbishop Mordowicz.
A miserable priest, broken by
the media hate campaign.
- He got lost himself.
- It clings.
It searches and gets lost itself
then draws another person into this.
It's so easy to intimidate a priest.
...attack on Father Lisowski
will be perceived as...
- Put me through to Sliz!
- At this hour?
Right. Why fucking hurry up?
Call him in a year!
- ...a personal attack on...
- ...don't smash him...
- ...when a child is looking for love...
- don't place nails...
It's the archbishop.
...it often manifests itself...
I need help.
When Rysiek is 18, he'll take it.
Bring the housekeeper over!
And you check in the church.
- Praised be Jesus Christ.
- Now and for ever.
I don't know yet.
For some time, his behaviour revealed
that he suffered from
some kind of mental health problems.
Father Kukula refused to accept
the Curia's help.
His behaviour started to raise
controversies among the faithful.
In this situation, the Church authorities
decided to take a difficult decision
to suspend Father Kukula.
Unfortunately, before...
I've got nothing.
I've got a reference on the third side.
- Nothing!
- Nothing!!
Is that all?
Fasten your seatbelts, please.
We're about to land.
Give me oil in my lamp, keep me burning
Give me oil in my lamp, I pray
Give me oil in my lamp, keep me burning
Keep me burning till the break of day
Praised be Jesus Christ.
Welcome the representatives of the Unions...
I'll fucking show you!
...years devoted to serving Mary I spent
in poverty not caring about material goods
...not once and not twice,
when I was to suffer for my faith,
and I did suffer!
Not once and not twice did I repeat:
- "The Lord gave...
- You Excellency,
- he's landed.
- Let's go!
Let's welcome the President of
the Republic of Poland and his wife!
Get in!
Brothers and sisters, for fifty years...
...of my priestly service
- I have always been following the idea...
- How do you like it?
- ...idea of serving God,
- Turn it off.
- ...truth and humility
- It's only for the start.
When I get a job,
we'll rent something bigger.
...and in this humility
we shall withstand heavy blows
dealt to us with no constraint
and no mercy
...forgiving our trespassers.
When I was
to suffer for my faith,
and I did suffer for my faith,
not once and not twice
did I bow my head
in humility repeating:
"The Lord gave and
the Lord has taken away."
"Do not be overcome by evil,
but overcome evil with good."
Oh God! No!
Let this work be blessed,
this crowning of my life ...
