Lovely Rita (2001) Movie Script

Dinner's ready!
Rita! Go and get Dad, please.
We were in the mountains
two years ago.
Or perhaps it was three years ago.
Do you remember?
Why are you making a face again?
What do you mean by "again"?
Off you go, now.
Thank you
for every brand new morning.
Thank you
for every lovely day.
Thank you
for taking all my burdens
From me when I pray.
Thank you
for good friends I've won.
Thank you
for each and every one.
Look at her!
You ought to like this port, Gerald.
As a matter of fact
Fichley told me it's the same port
your father gets from him.
Then itll be all right.
The governor prides himself
on being a good judge of port.
I don't pretend to know much about it.
Alex, "I should... "
I should jolly well think not, Gerald.
I'd hate you to know all about port
like one of those purple-faced old men.
I'm not a purple-faced old man.
No, not yet!
But then you don't know all about port.
Do you...
Do you?
Now then, Sybille,
you must take a little tonight.
Special occasion, you know.
Yes, go on, Mummy,
you must drink to our health.
What's that all about?
She missed her line.
It's not my fault.
Okay, Rita, but it's not your turn.
Carry on, Alex.
Yes, go on, Mummy.
The clear favourite only managed
a disappointing 12th place.
Last year's European champion
performed a beautiful free programme
but came in second
before her teammate Volshkova.
The winner took her third crown.
Irina Slotskaya from Moscow
repeated 1996 and 1997 triumphs.
She stunned the experts
with seven dazzling...
You owe me 500 schillings.
Do you have any money on you?
I've got a hundred.
Take the hundred.
You'll get the rest later.
This is the scope.
If you adjust this, there's less recoil.
Go for the deer's front leg.
Raise the gun as high as the heart.
Then aim for the shoulder,
and then, bang, you fire.
He was looking
for various forms of magnetic waves.
I don't really believe in that, but...
They've done studies on it.
99% of all people have the ability
to sense these vibrations.
By the way,
that's Andi and Fexi.
- Hello.
- Hello.
Fexi must avoid fatigue,
remember, Andi?
To being neighbours.
Damn, where am I?
Had enough, kid?
Want one?
Can I have one too?
You really think
that's good for you?
I'm the scorpion!
You just wait!
Look Inge,
you're a grown woman.
How many times have I told you
I don't like the toilet lid left up!
Can't you two close it
when you're done?
Is that too much to ask?
It wasn't me.
You're making a face again!
Would you put the lid down, please?
Any signs of recovery?
Now and then I think it's improving,
but it doesn't last.
It fluctuates.
It gets better
and then it's back in shorter intervals.
It's not easy for him.
No thanks. Thanks.
What do you want to be?
I want to study business.
- You have more options later.
- Making plans already?
I'll believe it when I see it.
Rita, get us a bottle Ired.
- How do I know what kind?
- It's by the door...
Because I was...
because I was in a furious temper.
You knew it was me all the time,
didn't you?
Miss Glaser? Can't we do the test
without the passive voice?
None of us understands it anyway.
That's enough, Sonja.
Pull yourself together.
We get off at the next stop.
You ordered Chicken McNuggets.
What kind of sauce?
Slow outbound on Triester
between Guertel and Wiener Berg.
Delays can be expected
so get an early start.
Wiener Gasse is closed to all traffic
all the way to Lutherstrasse.
I left my sweater on the bus.
The other one.
There you are.
Have a look if it's in here.
Bus leaving for Grinsing.
Schabert speaking.
Excuse me?
I see.
Of course.
What is this, damn it?
- Won't it shut?
- Leave me alone.
Don't do that again, you hear?
Kiss your dad goodbye, then.
- Where?
- The New Testament.
- In the New... what?
- The Old Testament.
Right, in the Old Testament,
you joker.
And who wrote it?
Do you know
- The priests of Rerusalem.
- Jerusalem. The priests of Jerusalem.
There's also another verse.
Where can I find that one?
What about you?
- Well?
- I feel sick.
- I'll have to call your mother.
- She's not home.
Neither is Dad.
But I've got a key, anyway.
She felt nauseous
and she went home.
Two hours ago.
Yes, I hope so too.
Have a nice day. Goodbye.
What is it?
Our biology test was today.
It went really well.
Oh, come off it.
- Hi.
- Hello.
Why don't you turn the light on?
Give us the port, Edna.
That's right.
You ought to like this port, Gerald.
As a matter of fact Fichley told me
it's exactly the same port
your father gets from him.
Then it'll be all right.
The governor prides himself
on being a good judge of port.
I don't pretend to know much about it.
I should jolly well think not, Gerald.
I'd hate you to know all about port,
like one of those purple-faced old men.
- I'm not a purple-faced old man.
- No, not yet!
But then you don't know
all about port, do you?
Now then, Sybille,
you must take a little tonight.
Special occasion, you know.
Yes, go on, Mummy,
you must drink to our health.
Very well done.
You've got a visitor.
God, that hurts!
You're a stupid one!
Oh boy.
There. It's hooked up.
See, it works.
To Daddy's little helper.
It could have gone on a little sooner.
There you've got it.
Are you two crazy?
I'm sorry.
What do you mean you're sorry?
Give me a kiss and tell your mother
to come upstairs.
Possibly, but if you're easy with me,
I'm easy with you.
After all, you know that we are
respectable citizens and not criminals.
Sometimes there isn't as much
difference as you think.
Often, if it was left to me,
I wouldn't know where to draw the line.
Fortunately it isn't left to you,
is it?
No, it isn't.
But some things are left to me.
You knew it was me all the time,
didn't you?
- But what did Sheila do?
- I went to the manager at Milwards.
And I told him to get rid of her or
we would not come to the shop again.
And why did you do that?
Because I was in a furious temper.
I would say, save a bit
and then buy it.
Like it was with the sofa.
The sofa's a good example.
I can't buy a sofa
if I don't have the money.
Martina would rather pay
first and save later.
Just like her mother.
I'm the type of guy who saves first.
Then when I have the money,
that's when I buy the sofa.
Because that's when I can afford it.
I might find an even better sofa later.
- A bit of snowboarding...
- A little exercise...
- Drink a hot toddy...
- Pouting?
Don't you want any cake?
Leave me alone.
What's the matter?
Being difficult again?
And now for the great big surprise.
A snow...
joy does... make...
whirls around...
- Can't you be quiet!
- Oh, stop it.
Go on then, carry on.
Jesus Christ,
see what you made her do?
Poor darling.
You still owe me 400 schillings.
- Get home safely.
- Yeah, especially in this weather.
- Goodbye.
- Goodbye.
Goodbye, Siggi.
Dear God, please help the animals
that are being abused in experiments.
We beseech thee,
hear us, O Lord!
Heavenly Father,
In our class there are some girls
who think only of themselves
and their own benefit.
Please, God, have mercy
and show them your divine love
so they may be healed.
We beseech thee,
hear us, O Lord!
Want some?
She's talking to herself.
She says something like... "I...
I wanted to marry him", I think.
And the nurse hears it...
And falls in love with the brother.
What do they do then?
Well, uh...
They... err... go out or something.
And in the end,
she marries his brother.
- Sounds complicated.
- Not really.
- I just didn't tell it so well.
- That's okay.
Lovely Rita!
"... and everybody is running
in the same direction.
- God, what happened?
- I don't know. I just came. "
- Was that the joke?
- Yeah.
Oh well.
Just super.
I absolve you of your sins
in the name of the Father,
the Son and the Holy Ghost.
- Amen.
- Amen.
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done,
on Earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, the power,
and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
Miss Glaser, can I go now, please?
It's my grandfather's funeral today.
and I...
My mother forgot
to write me an excuse.
And if I call your house,
there won't be anyone at home, right?
That's right.
My parents have left for the cemetery.
And I should be going too.
- You will bring a note tomorrow.
- Yes.
I feel terribly sick.
Can I go to the headmaster's office?
Young lady, I've had enough.
Take a seat.
After the bell we'll both go
and see the headmaster.
Okay, now let's go on.
Which of you wants to read?
It was in the year 2157...
Only a heavy wooden club
or a thick iron bar,
a chair, or some kind of heavy,
blunt instrument
in the hands of a very powerful man
could have caused
such major injuries.
No woman could ever have inflicted
such injuries with any weapon.
The head of the deceased,
according to the witness's description,
had been separated
from the trunk of the body and...
was also completely shattered.
Get out!
Want some?
Your brother looks sick.
I think you should take him
to the doctor.
Hang on a second.
What's wrong?
I need something to drink.
I'll get you one.
Good evening, tickets please.
Are you travelling alone?
Our parents are picking us up.
Oxygen mask.
Will you be home tomorrow afternoon?
I just can't believe it.
She's driving me mad!
It can't be so hard to go to the toilet
and put the lid down.
What are you waiting for?
Go on!
Put the lid down!
Put the bloody lid down.
Pneumococci transmit diseases.
They are encapsulated.
They multiply rapidly
and their offspring also have capsules.
Sometimes it may happen
that one of them has no capsule.
Its own offspring will lack capsules.
A certain agent can be obtained
from dead pneumococci with capsules.
It is known as DNA.
Many happy returns!
- Thanks.
- From me too.
How thoughtful.
That's very sweet of you.
My dear Norbert,
look what I have for you.
Thank you so much.
That's very nice of you.
Many happy returns.
- Gertrud, thank you so much.
- My pleasure.
To your health!
Long shall his life be,
long shall his life be,
three times as long.
Let's make him fatter,
fatter and fatter,
three times as fat.
- What else is there?
- Rich...
And he'll be wealthy, richer and richer,
three times as rich.
- Only three times?
- Or maybe more.
Here you go.
Make a wish.
That one will come true.
To your health!
Thank you, sweetie.
Happy birthday.
Look how thoughtful she can be.
That's really lovely.
Thanks so much.
I really like it.
Let's have a toast.
Norbert, the news.
Rita, get your dad,
the news has started.
The news is on.
- The news is on.
- I'll be right there.
And? Isn't Dad coming?
Evening! Tickets, please.
I left my pass at home.
That'll be 38 schillings.
Where were you today?
Miss Glaser was surprised
because of the test.
Can I copy your homework?
- Want a bite?
- Yes, but not too much.
I wanted to tell you something.
I'm not mad at you
about "Inspector Calls".
I've forgiven you.
Thank you.
- No, just a tiny bit.
- Like this?
Where's the toilet?
- In the hall, first door on the right.
- Thanks.
