Stander (2003) Movie Script

Andre, you're mad! You're mad!
Oh, Je...
No, no, no!
No! No! No! Aah!
Oh, shit
Oh, sorry, Captain
I didn't recognize you
- Anything serious?
- Oh, usual business
Carry on
Suppose I'm the force now
Come on!
Hey Hey Shh!
Come here, guys Come, come, come
Oh, no, no, no, no
Hold it...
There you are
All right, um, I would like
to toast my best friend, Andre
- Yeah!
- Cheers
who has had the good fortune to marry
the most beautiful woman in our country
In all Africa!
Excuse me. Sorry. I stand corrected.
He's had the good fortune...
- You've said that
- 'Cause it's worth repeating, you lucky bastard
You get to marry her twice
Do not screw it up this time Okay?
You're getting a second chance at this
So just enrich our numbers
with some new Stander blood!
- Hip-hip!
- Hooray!
- Hip-hip!
- Hooray!
Yes! Oh, yes!
You are bastards!
Bastards all of you!
Where are you, Andre?
With you on a beach
But we're 18
It's America
Fort Lauderdale
Rock and roll is playing
We're running through the surf
And have you lost our hotel keys yet?
I'm gonna take you back there
- You're crazy.
- I will You'll see
You're crazy
All I need is you
I want it to be different now, Bekk
I need you to help me this time.
I need you to tell me I won't
get sucked back into the muck
You can do it, Andre
Just promise me that whatever undercover
crime-infested hippie drug den you find yourself in
that I'll be there
In your thoughts, I mean
- Hah!
- No!
Hey Hey
Bad business, Andre.
Single woman. She's about 32.
Dead maybe 8 or 10 hours.
It's clearly murder,
but there's no motive we can make out.
- Wounds are vicious
- Looks like a serrated edge.
- Think she knew the guy?
- There's no signs of forced entry.
Not much of a struggle either.
We'll need shots of the bedroom as well
- And check the bathroom door and the taps for prints
- Where's the child?
She had a girl, maybe 5 years old
Any sign of her?
That child was here last night
We have a murder-kidnapping
- And if we don't move fast, that list will grow
- I'll get you the reports...
You're in charge, Cor
Get used to it
I've got a date with my wife.
In the wake of rioting...
which broke out in Soweto two days ago...
violence continues
to erupt in townships...
with students organizing protests...
against Afrikaans
as the language of instruction.
In Tembisa, a number of schools and
administration buildings have been torched
Municipal beer halls and liquor stores
have been burned down...
and police have erected
roadblocks at all township entrances.
While the anti-urban terrorism unit
continues to patrol the townships...
all members of the police force
have been placed on riot duty alert
A number of arrests have been made
What is going to happen, Andre?
The Department of Bantu Education...
has closed all schools
in Soweto and Alexandra.
What's this?
Live rounds today, no extra charge.
Courtesy of the general.
Too many of you caught changing
the rubber for D-cells anyway
I can feel it, Andre
It's a bad day
Don't, Cor
It'll be fine
It's Rita
If anything happens to me...
Of course And you'll do the same
for me with Bekkie, huh?
- Oliver Tambo!
Oliver Tambo
Oliver Tambo!
- Away with Afrikaans! Away!
- Away!
- Away with Afrikaans! Away!
- Away!
- Away with Afrikaans! Away!
- Away!
- More power!
- More power!
- More power!
- More power!
This is a illegal gathering!
The time is now 923!
You have three minutes!
At 926 you must...
Thank you very much!
Requesting you that instead of
making a mockery of this warning...
that you stop this action immediately!
Coming back!
Stop this action immediately!
Stop this action!
Leave this place immediately!
We need backup, quickly!
Hold your fire!
Hold it!
Stop this action immediately!
Now we must take action against you!
Notice! You have been warned!
Fire at will!
Get him out of here!
- You know the policy on this?
- Not at all
- He will
- Captain!
Think we'll get overtime on this?
Jesus! Andre!
Andre, what's wrong?
Andre, it's okay...
It's okay! It's okay!
Andre! It's all right!
Come on! Come on!
It's all right It's all right
It's all right
It's all right
Harold told me you was coming
Why do the wrong ones
keep dying, Pa?
I shot a man today
Speak English, Dad, please
If you hadn't shot him, what then?
- The riots would continue, sir
- And then?
Maybe they would take power
Eventually they will
They would kill us, those of us who stayed
Wouldn't they?
Maybe they're not like us
This country would become
like the rest of Africa...
disease-ridden, corrupt
Popular leaders who murder their own
people, steal millions from the treasury...
and then go off
to die of cancer in Swiss clinics
Our blacks have the highest standard
of living on the continent
Son, you helped the Africans today...
By murdering unarmed men?
Unless you call this a weapon
You can't avoid riot duty,
Stander. No one likes it.
Some of them do
Let them do it
You've discussed this with your father?
He has nothing to do with this
Yes. Riot squad is an important part
of your duty, like it or not.
And asking to be relieved from it...
You're making a good name for yourself.
You're the youngest captain in the force.
You know what this
will mean to your career
I realize what this will mean to me, sir
For God's sake
To you
Sorry Didn't mean to wake you
Don't you do this to me
Don't you dare shut me out It's me
I wasn't defending myself
I wasn't defending my family
The only thing I maybe
might have been defending
was my own...
What? Reputation
And even then, it's not mine.
Saving Stander face
Holding up my end
Which is a bullshit excuse
for my shooting people, killing people
You've got to stop this
You know, the truly amazing thing is...
don't even feel worse than I do
Please don't
Oh, for Christ's sake
Where the hell is everyone?
They've all been called up
That bomb in Soweto
They have to enforce a curfew.
And meanwhile
we let everything go to shit here
You know, a white man could
get away with anything today
while the police
are too busy crushing the blacks!
Coming for lunch, sir?
Terrifically busy
Thank you
Newspaper. Newspaper.
Newspaper. Newspaper.
Newspaper. Newspaper.
Paper, paper, paper
Hey! Hey, excuse me!
Did you see what he did?
Hejust comes barging in, pushing past.
I mean, we're a queue here.
We are all waiting.
You're not the only one in a hurry.
What if we all did that, eh?
It would be a bit of a mess,
wouldn't it?
I don't know
After all, this is a bank.
You're supposed to behave yourself.
Some gentleman!
No. No. No, no, no.
He was wearing... wearing a blue suit...
and, um, big sunglasses on his face,
big sunglasses.
He had big sunglasses and...
and a blue suit. Yes, I think...
You can drop these at lunchtime tomorrow
I'll be in meetings all day
And what are these?
What's got into you?
I blew off some steam
That's all I needed
It won't happen again
If these are to make up for a week of nothing
but trouble, you can keep your roses
- But it might cost you the Bolton
- Oh, no
It'll only take two men.
I didn't believe him. Only two men.
He said, yeah, two men and a hundred blacks.
A hundred kaffirs.
That's rich.
What about
one man and 200 kaffirs, huh?
Bring it in.
We'll take care of it for you.
- Thanks very much.
- Thank you
Going around the corner!
So, he showed the teller the gun
and apparently threatened to blow his
head off if he didn't hand over the money
Anyone else hear that?
Uh, no. Apparently
they were quite busy at the time.
And then he exited through the front
of the bank, went into the street
The security guard pursued him,
but lost him immediately
Any description?
Evidently the same good looker
that hit the first bank
Put out an alert and stake out
the downtown banks
All right
Thanks, guys
The '68 Nederburg.
All right
Go ahead
Oh! Oh
And two of them, Andre
It's beautiful They're beautiful
We can't...
We can't afford these
There were old assets in my family
I decided it was time to cash in
Well, you certainly did
It's time you had something
as lovely as you are
Tell me everything's all right
Everything's all right
Nothing solid
He keeps his head down,
seems to know where the cameras are
Generic... six foot, suit, red hair
- Probably a disguise
- Yeah Right
I know It's been a bad day
You okay now?
I'm sure, miss, you've been
through this over and over...
but could you tell me
exactly what you saw?
- You
- Me?
I mean...
L- I don't know what I mean.
It's just he was, you know...
like you
Want to take me in, Captain?
I don't know Some kind of satisfaction
Fame, maybe?
Well, he's got our attention
I'll give him that
He keeps pushing, raising the stakes,
upping the ante
He's probably contemplating
something daring next
Something big
The airport
The foreign exchange windows
Morning flight arrivals
A thousand foreigners,
exchanging dollars, pounds, marks
- The airport, really? That's a stretch
- Maybe
But I got a feeling about this bugger
A very strong feeling
- Take a team, Cor Stake it out
- Okay
Yes, that is a firearm, but I don't intend
to use it Give me all your money
Captain Deventer?
What? Three? In an hour?
Wejust got these in.
He's one smooth oak
Something on your mind, Cor?
You know, Andre,
if you want to get away
just you and Bekkie, just to let
things settle away from this madness
I'll cover for you,
as long as it takes
I'll keep that in mind
As a friend, hey,
we all need a change of scenery
Captain Stander.
Sir, you are under arrest
I'll have to have your gun, Andre
We've had a 90-man team on you, Andre
What took you so long?
I'm not as good as you
You've gotten better
Could you please just turn around and
put your hands behind your back, please?
The state ofbank robberies
plaguing theJohannesburg area...
could finally come to an end
with a surprising arrest.
The suspect in the so-called "White Collar
Robber Case"has been captured.
In a startling turn of events...
an arrest was made of none other than
Johannesburg police Captain Andre Stander.
The extent of the captain's alleged
involvement in the robberies on the Reef...
is not determined at this time,
though 28 charges are pending.
Among them are several counts of
robbery, attempted murder, fraud...
illegal possession of firearms,
forgery and pottering.
More news after this.
I have three sons
who do motorcycle riding
Their clothes are just caked in mud
Does the defense have witnesses?
Uh, none.
Then do you have a statement,
Captain Stander...
before I consider judgment?
I'm tried for robbing banks
But I have killed unarmed people
That is not the business
of this court
Do you have anything more to say?
"The court only
attaches importance...
"to the accused's reckless
endangerment of innocent people...
"that he had sworn
to his country to protect
"No account is taken ofhis prior
record and commendations.
The court sentences former Captain
Andre Stander to 32 years imprisonment"
Dirty fucking Harry
He won't last long
Really? Who's got the balls?
You, Lee?
Hey! That psycho kidnapper
will be out before you.
How does that make you feel, supercop?
Lee McCall.
I used to hit banks...
back home in Australia
You're not Australian, you bastard.
Sing the national anthem, then
Wallaby and Kangaroo
Will ever runnin'
be free and... true...
- I'm fuckin'no Australian...
- Lee McCall
You've been inside
11 of the last 12 years
Bad checks, stolen cars, credit cards
Small-time habitual.
Hit the bank?
You've never even had an account
Why, it sounds like you know me
Your file crossed my desk once
"The car must stay full of petrol
"Ask my father to please empty my treasure
chest and put the money in the boot
"Shift the seat back please, Bekk,
I may be handcuffed.
"I feel like the lowest of the low
for asking you these things
Or are you enjoying
the adventure?"
- How did he get it past them?
- Oh, he didn't
A friend of mine slipped it to me
before the press got hold of it
He's a flight risk now.
One letter a month, no visitation rights.
- Would you have helped him?
- Of course
If he had been caught,
the appeal would have been denied
Bekkie, I may be selfish, but that is the only
hope I have of seeing him out before I die
Don't encourage him.
Oh, Bekkie
There are parts of Andre
I'm afraid we'll never know
You didn't marry him twice
My friend, Cor.
After two years in here,
I am an honest man.
I no longer worry
that I'm living a lie.
I have more respect for the sorted
criminals I find myself amongst...
than I did for the cops
I used to know.
Thugs, bullies, cut-up buggers...
smoking stolen cigars
at my very own wedding.
Robbed goods paid out in the name
of so-called protection.
I'd rather rob a bank than accept
a gift that was given out of fear.
Oh, not for me
I've got a half shoulder
- Parachuting accident
- Right
How do you spell parachute? Eh?
I don't know
Hey, asslicker!
I'm on to you
- I want to take a trade test
- Who gives a shit?
On the 31 st
Outside these walls
Outside. Really?
You're soft
I think you've lost your nerve
I don't need to prove myself to you
I was robbing banks years before you
I robbed my first bank with my finger
- With your finger?
- Yeah
- Really?
- Really
You swine
See, I was born to it
Chaos It's all I know
Well, Allan, when I get out,
maybe I'll come back and get you
Thank you, but, uh,
that's not how I see it, Andre
When I get out,
I'll come back and get you
- You hear that, McCall?
- What?
- Heyl thinks he'll beat us to it
- Huh?
Scrum up!
Oh, God!
Your mother balls!
Fuckin'does cop
broke my fuckin'arm!
Get off
Get off
Get up, boys!
Break it up!
Break it up!
Come on, break it up!
Let's check your mobility.
I'm looking at 30 more years here.
Do you think I care if I live or die?
How about your friend?
Does he care?
Does his wife? His kids?
Come on, give me that!
Give it! You too! Come on!
You, fat boy! Give me the gun!
Lay on the ground!
Now why don't you be a good ou
and take these off of me.
Tell me about your cars.
Lee, come on.
You did fine, son.
Just fine.
Is this yours, Granddad?
This yours, is it?
I'll take this.
Nothing more up-to-date?
Get in here!
Thank you for coming.
Pull over! Pull over!
Please step out, Miss.
I didn't know about it!
This way.
- Is there a problem?
- No problem.
I would have gone with them!
Thank you for your cooperation.
Guten tag.
It's Andre.
He's done it.
- Good afternoon, sir.
- Good afternoon.
Do you see that gentleman behind me?
He's my second. He's here to make sure that
after I leave, you don't do anything stupid.
Fill it up.
You're a lovely woman.
Well, I take whatever I want to
And, baby, I want you
...previously convicted in
a series ofbank robberies...
escaped today from custody.
It is suspected that
the precisely executed escape...
was planned by Stander...
With the assistance
of Patrick Lee McCall.
Both men were wearing disguises.
If that is you, Andre, then I trust that
God will help me to do the right thing.
I'll bet they're
pulling out all the stops to find us.
I can tell you what
they're doing right now.
They're sitting in a meeting in Jo'Burg.
Smoking fat cigars.
Trying to figure out how to handle this
without making themselves look...
even more witless
than they already are.
Oh, no, you can't be serious.
- You're next.
- Nah. There's no need.
Cops have got nothing on me.
No photos, nothing.
You lying shit, man.
Lie down!
Lie down!
Lie down!
Allan! Allan!
Outside the walls, Allan.
Trade test is over.
Let's go.
Nice to see you.
I'm Peter Grey.
I'm very pleased to meet you.
Kenny Roberts.
Brandon Clayton!
You swine!
Now, where to, my Chinas?
Now what do we do?
We fuck with the system, we crumble its
foundations and capitalize on the new disorder.
What the fuck is that
supposed to mean?
It means we rob every bank between
here and the other side ofJo'Burg.
Whoo! Whoo!
- It's empty.
- Fill it.
Fill it. Quickly.
The bank's money or yours?
Help! Anybody help!
We'vejust been robbed!
Careful! They got a gun, eh!
I think it is, eh? Do you... Do you mean
we've been robbed by Andre Stander?
- Uh, yes, sir.
- Oh! Hey!
We've been robbed by Andre Stander, eh!
- Andre Stander! Oh, that's something, eh?
- Yeah. We'll just need you to...
The rent will be collected
on the first of each month.
The water is included
but not electricity.
- And we expect the house to be kept in a clean condition.
- Of course.
Do you have any references,
Mr. Clayton?
How about 2,000 rand, cash?
The best for my friends.
Tell me, sir,
uh, which side do you dress?
Uh, well, I usually just pull
them straight up like that.
Jesus! We look like bank
presidents, not bank robbers!
Then, we'll need some wheels
to match, eh!
Wait! Stop!
Extremely high-powered, more than capable
of 180, not that I've tried it personally.
But the Targa is the classic Porsche.
There are only four in the country,
Mr. Marshall... It is Mr. Marshall, isn't it?
This is the only one in this particularly
bright, vibrant color of canary yellow...
- Where the fuck are you going, man?
- I'm just going!
Speed, man. That's how they got you.
You pushed it too far.
If you go fast enough,
you can't see where you've come from.
I just think treating him
like any other criminal won't work.
Any other criminal wasn't
Captain of Detectives.
If we act like we're desperate
to apprehend Stander...
- it makes us only look like we're scared of him.
- Aren't we?
He's one man.
We're the damned government.
- Well, now he's three...
- Well, whatever. Bring him in. Quietly.
We are in control here, goddamn it!
As you say, sir.
- Morning, cowboy.
- You're good at collecting money.
Give us a hand, eh?
Come on. Come on.
Move it!
Hey, lady.
Sit down. Back off, huh?
Thank you. Excuse me.
Fill her up.
- Oh!
- That's good. Zip it up. Zip it up. Okay. Very good.
Do they pay you much?
Twenty seconds.
Took 7,000 in cash.
But I knew all about
their other robberies, so...
There's 25,000 rand in there.
A downtown bank manager
has reported that due to his foresight...
- the gang missed a substantial sum hidden in a secondary safe.
- Oh!
- Allan.
- It's 52 degrees on the Reef.
In case you have a short memory,
this is a fucking robbery.
Three banks were robbed
in theJohannesburg area today.
One of them, twice.
Andre Stander, the mastermind,
brazenly returned to the bank...
and allegedly robbed
a second set of its contents.
Peace in Lebanon is up for debate
as the U.S. And France...
It must be hard on you, boss?
Yeah. It is.
Very kind of you to ask, Harold.
The latest on the Stander gang...
is that Andre Stander look-a-like,
Mr. Mark Jennings...
has been arrested for the third time.
Mr. Jennings spoke to our reporter today
upon his release.
I can't walk in the streets,
I can't do my business.
I've been arrested three times as a Stander
and not one apology. Not one!
Just this morning...
Oh, poor bugger.
His 15 minutes used up.
It's enough to drive anybody crazy.
Do you fancy going out
and stealing a car?
Hey! Hey, Andre! Andre! She's cool!
She's my woman! I love her!
Every time you fuck
you fall in love!
You understand.
You're one of us now.
You fuck up, you give us to the cops,
you're dead!
Like that.
That was nice.
She'll turn on us,
she'll turn on him...
the first time she's pushed.
Hey, don't take any notice of him, huh?
He's just jealous
'cause you're my chickie, eh?
Come here, my little Talia.
Don't worry. Come on.
Tarzan take you back to bed now.
I've been in twice. She's seen me too much.
You do this one, you two.
She has a lot of firepower
at her fingertips, Andre.
It'll be easy. Lee, you distract her.
Send her to the back for Beretta rifles. Allan,
hop over the counter, ready for her return.
Don't worry, Allan. I'll protect you.
- May I help you?
- Do you have any Beretta rifles?
Uh, yes. Yes, we do.
Would you like the deluxe or standard?
Right. And so, what's the difference?
Well, the deluxe is checkered,
the standard isn't.
- Checkered meaning?
- It's like an engraving.
- Oh, is it?
- Yeah.
Well, I think then, uh, probably
the deluxe is what I'm looking for.
- All right. Let me just check the back for you.
- Right. Great, thank you.
Fuck! It's glass.
Hop over the counter. Fuck!
It's in the fucking details, Andre.
What are you laughing at?
My pants are too tight.
Oh, shit!
Easy. Easy. Easy.
She had a gun, man! Why has she...
Why has she got a gun, huh?
Just the heavy metal, Allan.
Let's go!
'... says Captain
Cor Van Deventer.
He took an arsenal... enough to blast
a hole through the middle of this country. "
Can't believe the first time
I shoot somebody, I shoot a woman.
"Fear the Stander Gang. "
Gang? That's crass.
"... are planning a new series of robberies,
this time with deadly force. "
- What other kind is there?
- "Victim identified the shooter as escaped convict Lee McCall. "
- Oh, fuck!
- She's well enough to I.D. You.
- I wish I'd killed the bitch.
- "Police have set up a special task force. "
Gentlemen, we have
graduated to task force.
"A nerve center in Yoeville... "
I know this building.
And you know
what's right next door?
That's completely outrageous.
What's so fucking funny?
- They think scared,
so they think we'll lie low.
Fuck predictable.
Let's do it.
Bo bo bo bo bo bo
I feel free
Bo bo bo bo bo bo
I feel free
- Hmm mmm mmm mmm
- Bo bo bo bo bo bo I feel free
Bo bo bo bo bo bo
I feel free
Bo bo bo bo bo bo
I feel free
Bo bo bo bo bo bo
I feel free
Leave it, Lee.
Isn't that the-the...
the bank robbers?
Hey! What are you doing?
- Lee!
- Get out of the car now!
Lee! Lee! Lee!
He's cool. He's cool.
This is crazy. This is fuckin' crazy.
I mean, what the fuck are we doing, huh?
I mean, we're riskin' our necks
when they know we are coming...
and you're giving
the fuckin' money away.
- I mean, what's the point, eh? What's the fuckin' point...
- Shut up.
Take it easy, relax. It's cool.
Take your time. Smile.
Don't turn around.
Don't look at your coworkers.
Very good.
Just keep filling the bag.
What the fuck, Lee?
We said no fucking shooting, eh?
We said no shooting!
- Fuck!
- Just drive!
Shit for brains!
What the fuck?
He's out of his mind.
I can't do it.
I'm not going to make it.
- Relax.
- Fuck him.
They're so busy investigating
the last three, they're stretched thin.
Fuck you. Fuck you!
I don't need to set a bank robbing record.
Leave him in the van next time. Fuck him.
- Lee.
- Don't need him.
This is supposed to be fun, huh?
You know it's not often that
houses like this come on the market.
He can't be serious.
In our top story,
police have deployed extra officers...
at bank branches in the wake
of five bank robberies, all last Friday...
attributed to the Stander Gang.
- Here's what you had to say.
- You know, uh...
he's just doing what a lot
of people wish they could do.
He's got nerve.
I'll give him that.
How about some
personal credit here?
- They even repeat the same bank.
- We'll announce ourselves as the Heyl Gang next time.
That would be very nice, Andre.
And they have courage.
And I think he's really inventive.
You're obviously not the only ones
who enjoy seeing the tables turn, eh?
The Premier of the Soviet Union has died.
Right, Allan.
That's why we're bigger news
than the head of fucking Russia.
Jesus! You scared the shit out of me.
Sorry about that.
I had to make sure we were alone.
It's different now.
- I'm different.
- So I've read. Always different, never the same.
- What's changed, Andre?
- Money.
Money solves a lot of problems, Bekkie.
Got plenty of that.
We can go anywhere.
- Anywhere in the world.
- Anywhere but here, right?
- What about my life? What about my freedom?
- Freedom?
There's no freedom here.
There's two choices...
either become them...
or you live at odds
with everything around you.
I don't want that for you.
We'll start over.
America. New I.D.
Your dreams can come true.
- I'll make them happen.
- Well, that's very glamorous, Andre.
But unlike you, I look terrible
in a black wig and glasses.
I'm quite fine, thank you very much,
in my quiet little life.
I want to take you with me.
I promised, remember?
- Don't start.
- You're everything to me. All I've ever wanted.
I had everything I wanted.
Bekk. The things they say about me...
I'm not stupid, Andre.
There's not a thinking man among us...
that doesn't want to blow this place
to smithereens from time to time.
But we don't.
We find other ways.
I won't make it without you.
- I need to be left alone.
- Oh, Jesus!
You love me.
We would be together.
I know how this will end.
the beach.
You come with me.
I'm tired, Andre.
Some things are done
that can't be undone.
I hate you.
Are you coming to work today, Lee?
- Huh?
- I said, 'Are you coming to work today?"
- Morning all.
- How is it?
- Morning.
- Would you like some eggs?
Ja. Ja.
It's been a long time since
I've had a home-cooked meal.
I'm glad you like it.
You wouldn't have
any dust over there, would you, Shar?
- Andre.
- Lee.
I know Shar's not your kind of woman,
but she's the kind I dreamed of, right.
Dream come true.
I'm happy for you.
You have plans?
We should all have plans.
In fact, I'm thinking of making
a change myself. With my lady.
Maybe the States.
Try something different.
That's great, man.
What about you, Allan?
Me? Uh...
I'd like to go to Greece.
Well, we got plenty of money.
I mean, enough to last for a while.
Get all the airline schedules.
We'll plan it.
Between 3:00 and 5:00 on Sunday...
two S.A.A. 747 s, B. A...
K.L.M., Air France...
Lufthansa... all coming in.
They're already in.
We want to go out.
El Al to Tel Aviv 32 minutes later.
You'll be on it. A Hasidic Rabbi on the
way to a Talmud seminar with his niece.
Or a wrestling coach
on his way to a match in Melbourne.
Shar, make us some tea, will ya?
Enough to live good for a while.
Why not forever?
Rip off the fucking airport.
Aw, fuckin' hell.
You sly...
I might have known.
- We've written a pretty good story so far.
- Are you joking?
Why not a perfect ending?
- Jesus fuckin' Christ.
- Stander's last stand, eh?
I think it's fucking great.
That's fuckin' great, yeah.
Pounds, marks, dollars.
You can go anywhere in the world.
- Anywhere in the world.
- Right.
Yeah. Okay. Right.
Vienna, my boy.
Spilled my champagne, huh?
To you and to me.
And to your lovely little breasts.
- Let's swim. Come on.
- Swim?
Swim. Swim.
You're warm. Look at you go,
and your pineapple chunks.
Trying to drown me, huh?
Give me my champagne.
And don't drown me.
What do you want?
A few years ago...
His name...
I'm looking for his family.
Themba Mnguni.
Themba Mnguni?
Fuck him and fuck you too!
I was fuckin' ready, huh!
And he fuckin' blows it!
We were outta here!
- You didn't want to do it anyway.
- Fuck!
On the crime front, a reportjust in...
advised that police have thwarted
an alleged Stander Gang plan...
to commit a robbery
at the international airport.
- Police under the command of Cor Van Deventer...
- Amazing.
They would have had us.
Even when he's wrong, he's right.
- Stander himself was spotted
outside the airport terminal.
Give me that gun.
Oh, fuck!
Oh, my God!
- Face it. You were wrong!
- He'll try it again. I know him.
That bastard is still running you.
He's running the goddamn force!
He has made us look
impotent in our own country.
What does this tell
our enemies within?
We want him stopped, Captain.
Shot if necessary.
Shot on sight.
I understand.
I'm sorry.
I've let you all down.
You'll have to go without me.
Never give up, do you? Eh?
I'll come soon.
I'm not going.
You'll find a way.
You always do.
I think I have the way.
She's a 55-foot steel ketch.
Perkins diesels.
Solar panel.
Long range fuel tank.
She's got a range, under power...
of about a thousand nautical miles.
All the best equipment.
I used to have a water bed,
but the rolling got a bit much.
I could recommend a good chef.
- Cheers.
- Cheers.
She's valued at 148,000.
Who was the Lily Rose?
A wife. Considered bad luck
to change the name of a boat...
even when you change your woman.
She'll go with the boat, all right.
But that's her negotiation.
Now then, what did you have in mind?
No waiting for the check
to clear then, is there?
Fucking genius, eh!
The high seas!
Madam, you better come with me.
Hold out on me...
and I swear I will charge you
as a member of the Stander Gang.
I can make your life hell.
He knew the money was bent.
Everyone's dishonest.
Just a matter of degree.
He would have taken less.
Why hit the man when he's down?
It would bring us bad karma
in our new life.
Had enough of that in my old one.
Know what got me
started on all of this?
Are you saying it wasn't greed, Allan?
It was a girl.
A black girl.
She wasn't mine, but...
I loved her.
I really loved her.
I was a student
at teacher-training college.
I was full of politics, full of hope.
She was pregnant, not by me.
I shouldn't have been with her.
But the fucking cops...
They came into where we were.
They saw us together.
They beat us.
They beat the baby out of her.
So I robbed a store to get
her money to go to England.
And it was easy.
Too easy.
Taking down those banks...
fucking with those bastards.
The girl on the boat...
you think he was serious about her?
Lee's got Shar.
You've got yours.
She is coming, isn't she?
She's always with me.
Always will be.
One place I fucked up, my bro.
Hey, give it another go.
You've got a way now. It's different.
Thank you. Move along.
Thank you. Come on.
This is the South African police force!
You are surrounded!
Put your hands in the air,
and stay where you are!
Don't make any sudden move!
Stay calm.
Stay calm. Move along.
You cannot escape.
You are surrounded!
Go on. Go on.
Thank you. Keep moving.
All right. Okay.
Come out with your hands in the air!
You are surrounded.
There is no chance to escape!
Went out okay. Like Butch Cassidy.
- Like Bonnie and Clyde.
- Doesn't matter much. Out is out.
Move along! Get all these cars out.
Move along! Move along!
What do we do now?
Head back to the boat?
They've got the mansion.
Then they get the phone record.
They'll make us in Cape Town.
Hit it, Allan.
All vehicles in theJohannesburg area...
be on the lookout for
a yellow 1983 Porsche Targa.
License number...
You think they'll catch us?
- Speed oflight, Andre.
- Try the speed of darkness.
- Are you out of your fuckin'...
- Your car.
Hell, take mine.
Better stop the car now.
Fucking bastards.
All those guns to take out Lee.
It was me who did this to him.
I should've left him in jail.
Ah, fuck that.
You gave him the best time of his life.
The last six months, he was somebody.
The wrong ones do keep dying.
I, uh...
I had a brother.
But, uh, you two...
probably as close
as anyone to knowing me.
You won't make it with me.
We've got this far, all right?
We'll get another boat.
Can't fool me, Allan.
Can't fool yourself.
I'll see you in hell, bro.
Is this Mrs. Mark Jennings?
- Yes. Can I help you?
I'm from
the office of the high court.
We've managed to accelerate the review
of your husband's case.
So we'll be sending an officer this very
afternoon to collect his documents...
- for the preparation of the trial.
- Okay.
In the case
of false arrest or mistaken identity...
- the court requires passport...
- Passport.
- Book oflife...
- Yes.
Birth certificate
and a fourth photo I.D.
- All right.
- All of which will be returned following the trial.
- These are mine.
- This is yours.
Thank you. And that's
everything in there.
If you need an envelope...
Keep that someplace safe.
- Thanks very much.
- My pleasure.
Please proceed to Gate 3.
- Good afternoon, sir.
- I was hoping for...
Andre Stander!
Not again.
I am reaching for my wallet!
I am already suing
theJohannesburg police...
and several of their officers
personally for false arrest.
And if you don't remove
that weapon from my face, sir...
I'll bring a charge of assault
against you as well.
It's a sad state of affairs when a man has to
carry a library to keep from being arrested.
- Sir. He's been sighted.
- Where?
- At the airport.
- Come on. Let's go!
Look, either use force to arrest me...
or let me get on with my life.
Sorry, sir.
Sir, false alarm.
Wrong man.
No worries.
I'll catch you later, huh?
Thank you.
Sorry, sir.
Police! Keep it clear!
No, no, no! Wait!
Wait! Wait! Police!
- It's gone!
- Hold on! Hold on!
It's gone.
& And he was taken from Africa &
All right, party people.
This is the spring break
you've been waiting for.
Lauderdale is going off
Said he was a buffalo soldier
Dreadlock Rasta
Buffalo soldier
In the heart of America
Are you him?
That guy.
You know.
I'm sorry.
You don't sound like him.
That guy, you know.
On the TVshow, the detective.
Oh, God. Um...
Hutch. You know?
I'm afraid I don't.
- So then, like, what are you, English?
- Sure.
Wow. He solves crimes.
Hutch. With Starsky.
And if he commits them?
Well, what kind of a TV show
would that make?
You're cute when you laugh.
Hey, Cheryl!
Sigma Phi's having a blowout at the motel!
- Free beer!
- Oh, my God! I am so there!
A call for you, boss.
Who is it?
- Ja?
- Jawel. Hello. This is Skolly. Remember me?
I used to work for you,
General Stander, sir.
Ja, Skolly.
How are you?
- It-It's good to hear from you.
- Oh, I'm fine, General, sir.
I just called to say...
you must not worry
about Master Andre.
You know he always
tried to do his best.
And I know he always loved you, sir,
and respected you.
And I know he always will.
And he will... he will
always be my dear son.
I'm quite sure
he'll do the right thing.
Just lost his way somewhere.
Yes, I'm quite sure
he'll do the right thing now.
And I know, General, sir...
you always did your best for him.
God be with you... Skolly.
God be with you too, Dad.
Get out of the road, mister!
Move it!
Hey! Hey! Hey!
You in the red Cougar!
Please get out of your automobile.
Sir, please get out of your automobile.
Get out of the car
and stand against the door...
with your hands on the vehicle, sir.
Stand against the door with your hands
where we can see them, sir!
Against the car, sir!
We got you clocked at over 100, sir.
Spread your legs.
Spread 'em!
Little wet tonight for that kind
of driving, don't you think?
You been drinking, sir?
Hey, hey, hey!
Return to your position!
Whoa! Hey, return to your position!
Back it up!
You heard him, asshole!
Assume the fucking position!
Unit 14! 10-106.
Shots fired!
We need paramedics.
10-4, Unit 14. All units respond.
Stand by, 14.
They're on their way. Over.
I got a letter from
the government the other day
I opened and read it
It said they were suckers
They wanted me
for their army or whatever
Picture me givin'a damn
I said never
Here is a land
that never gave a damn
About a brother like myself
'Cause I ain't never did
I wasn't with it
Butjust that very minute
it occurred to me
The suckers had authority
Cold sweatin'
as I dwell in my cell
How long has it been
They got me sittin'in the state pen
I gotta get out
but that thought was thought before
I contemplated a plan
on the cell floor
I'm not a fugitive
on the run
But a brother like me
begun to be another one
Public enemy servin'time
They drew the line, y'all
They criticize me
for some crime
I got a letter
I got a letter
I got a letter
Picture me givin'a damn
I said never
