Subterranea (2015) Movie Script

What are you doing down here ...
all by yourself?
I think.
About what?
That I waited alone ...
too long.
It'll be 25 years to the day tomorrow.
I'm afraid that he's growing too independent, ...
too acclimatized.
I do not know if he'd make it.
I've made him too weak.
This was been the plan
from the very beginning.
We can not just
abandon our work now.
It all depends on what
happens next now, all of it.
We are so close to
finding the answer.
I'm not sure if he's ready.
I'm not sure I'm ready.
Listen to me, I will take care of him.
I'll watch him, you have my word.
It's time for you to let go.
Trust me, he's ready.
Are you awake?
Who is he?
I do not know.
Who are you?
Where am I?
You first, I want
a straight answer out of you.
Who are you?
You would not believe
me if I told you.
Try me.
All I remember is darkness.
What do you mean?
There was a small room.
I was alone.
It was all there was.
That's it?
No. No, there was a light.
A voice taught me to speak and read.
A voice?
A provider.
- A.
- A.
- B.
- B.
- C.
- C.
And he led him to a
cave below the earth.
There he saw how thousands ...
and thousands of
candles were burning ...
in countless rows.
There he saw how thousands and
thousands of candles
were burning
in countless rows.
So how did you get out?
I do not know, I woke up in chaos.
The light, the sound.
It overwhelmed me.
I didn't know what to do.
I didn't know where to go.
I was afraid.
Until Remy found me.
Hey, hey, what can I do for you?
Come here.
You're freezing to death.
Are you allright?
Are you okay?
Yeah, you're okay.
Come on, you better get out of here.
Before she calls the
cops. She's freaked out.
Hey, do you speak English or what?
You broke a leg?
Let's go, c'mon. C'mon.
English, c'mon.
He was the first person I met.
He took care of me.
He taught me.
I told him about my life,
about the darkness.
I told him everything.
Crazy shit!
You must have been in some
rich folk's jail.
What is that?
Fancy prison.
You must have pulled off some job.
What did you do, huh?
Do you want me to believe that, huh?
Like you're some kind of
fucking Rip Van Winkle?
What is fucking Rip Van Winkle?
You're allright.
A lot fuckin' strange,
but you're allright.
What's a fucking Rip Van Winkle?
It's a story.
It's about a man who falls
asleep for a long time
and wakes up in a new world.
I understand.
I want to find him.
The provider. He's the only one ...
who knows who I am.
Maybe I can help.
How can I trust you?
Lesson number one. There
is only one person ...
that you can count on in this life, ...
and that is yourself.
You've got to watch your back,
do not trust anyone.
No one, because they
always let you down.
You hear me?
Hey, hey.
What are you having?
What are we havin'?
We would like uhm, two Danish.
Okay, anything else?
How are you doing today, everything good?
Yeah, everything's good.
Nice earrings, I like those.
Two coffees.
That's just like that, huh?
No respect in
service these days.
Lesson number two.
Take whatever you want.
If you see it, take it.
See and catch.
- The money.
- What?
Take it.
That's what I'm talking about.
Coffee ready?
These results are not like
anything I've ever seen.
There is no records of anything.
What do you mean?
It means that on the
pc level, he does not exist.
Well, there's no medical
or dental records,
no birth certificate,
finger prints,
social security, nothing.
It's almost as if
someone wiped him off
of the face of the Earth.
Either that or...
Or what?
Or he never had any.
But everyone has records,
at least something.
I was able to find the
name of his mother.
She had blood worked on at about ...
the same time he was born.
Her last known address is in there.
Look, I've done what I promised.
I'm done, you
should do the same.
He's trouble, Maya, I
don't care what you see.
I need to know who he is.
I love you, but this is insane.
You do not know who he is,
what he is capable of.
Take it. Put one in him. Come on, do it!
Shoot the fucker!
I won't let you do this,
I'm calling the police.
No! Stop.
And what if he can give
me some answers?
You already know where you can
go if you want answers.
No, I want the truth,
no more lies.
Look, just give me some time.
If I do not find anything, ...
I'll make the call myself.
Promise me you will.
What did she mean
I don't exist?
What did she mean by that?
You weren't supposed to hear that.
Let's start looking in the morning.
To exist signifies to be
or to have life.
Immortal souls will
never cease to exist.
That's all for today,
now go to sleep.
Are you inside, or am I?
Well, this is it.
Your mother's last known address.
Is that her?
Why don't you let me go and
check this out first?
Where is she?
She's down there.
What's she doing down there?
She's dead.
She's buried here.
I never really
had a mother, either.
I remember things about
her, but nothing concrete, ...
nothing real.
I guess that kind of makes us the same.
We're both orphans.
But I had a father ... of sorts.
Where is he?
I don't know, I haven't
seen him in a while.
Don't you want to?
24/05/1960 - 06/02/1992
C'mon, let's go.
Who's this?
It's me.
What do you mean?
I mean, that was taken
when I was a child.
It was a long time ago.
This is you?
Kind of hard to see
the resemblance, huh?
I guess I've always
loved flowers.
At least as long as I can remember.
What's it like?
Never having seen this before.
At first I was...
Then I was ashamed.
I had never actually known what
a star looked like before tonight.
I read the word
hundreds of times.
A fixed luminous point in the night sky, ...
that is a large, remote,
incandescent body
like the sun.
I just ...
didn't know that it would be so beautiful ...
to feel so good.
Are you sure he's asleep?
Yes, we put him down hours ago.
Listen, ...
I want to take him now.
I hoped ...
We can't go on with
this, it's not right,
is not human.
I don't think we can do that.
You trust me, don't you?
Of course I trust you.
Then let's end this madness.
Can you spare any change?
Hey buddy, can I ask you
a buck?
Come on, I'm hungry.
Hey, you got nothing?
Hey you guys have extra coins, huh?
I'm just trying to get home,
I have to get the bus.
Get a job, man.
Son of a bitch.
Wait till you need something, huh?
Wait till you need an extra buck.
You have an extra dollar on you?
Hey, hey, good-lookin'.
Hey, hey, little girl!
Little girl!
Hey buddy, do you got an extra?
I'm just trying to get something
to eat, I'm hungry.
Come on, you got something.
Okay, you're allright, God
bless you, man.
That's how you do it.
That's how you get these people.
Show me you've got.
Allright, it's a start.
It's a start, allright,
good work. C'mon.
That's one way to pick up someone.
We'll have to work on that, though.
Now you're learning.
Atta boy.
Hey, hey, hand it over.
That's right.
I've got a bigger job lined up for you.
This is small potatoes.
... an assault that occurred
last week downtown.
The Police is now releasing this
photograph of the suspect, ...
that they've obtained from
an anonymous source.
The victim, Manuela Bloc, is
still in critical condition.
The police are asking
anyone with information ...
to contact the crime unit.
Speaking out on the
recent rash of violence ...
is Dr Peter Mockenrue.
He joins us now ...
with his thoughts.
As pre-conditioned as we are
to these types ...
of senseless acts, it
is always jarring when ...
it arrives in our own community
and touches us personally.
It's him.
I think we can all agree
that it's very sad ...
The violence continues to be...
I can't tell you
why you don't already know.
I reign the homes for
those who can not see.
It's the provider, he's here.
It's the voice.
Stop, stop.
My provider is here.
Hey, hey, put your head down.
You know that guy, huh?
I don't...
I think we're being followed.
Here, take these.
We need to lay low for a while.
Put that on.
Remy thought he was a cop,
he was always watching.
So Remy came up with a plan.
He caught him.
Paul Grant.
What if he was not following Remy?
What do you mean?
Maybe he can help.
Just act natural.
Just act natural.
Can I help you?
We were just wondering
if you're happy ...
with your internet connection, Mrs.
My name is not Grant.
Well, we must have gotten
our information wrong.
Sorry for the
inconvenience, Miss.
What are you doing?
Be quiet, I'm trying to
find out who she is.
The address is correct, but ...
but there is nothing
on Paul Grant.
Come on, Lucas.
I am a doctor.
Let's clean this up then.
Can I help you?
I'm just looking for someone.
I see, well you've come
to the right place.
Just let me know if I can
help you with anything else.
What are you doing?
What is this place?
It's a church.
And who is he?
That's Jesus.
What's wrong with him?
I'll tell you later,
we have to go.
Come on, let's go. Come on.
Come on, down here.
Go. Here.
Stay here, I'll be right back.
Hey, where are you going?
He's here.
I'm sure that he didn't see you,
I'm going to go upstairs and make
sure he's gone, allright?
This is getting serious.
He is being chased
by the police.
People are dead.
When was the last time you had
a gun in your face, Lucas?
We need to this
and we need to end it now.
We can't.
Peter said under
no circumstances ...
are we to interfere.
He has already seen my face.
We need to lay low ...
We've already interfered enough.
Come on, Lucas, lift with your legs.
If we don't end this now,
someone's going to die.
No one is going to die.
How do you know that?
He's not Maya.
Yes, I don't know
how he found her,
but she's all tied up with him now.
I couldn't tell Sarah. I'm
sure you'll understand.
But I'm gonna tell Peter.
No, you're gonna relax and stay calm.
I'm calm.
The only thing we're
going to tell Peter is ...
is that everything is
going according to plan.
Yeah, you're paying great.
C'mon, right there.
I hope it's the kid.
Can you just tell
me what's going on?
Talk to me.
I don't know.
The priest's name is Lucas Dietrich.
He started the fail-safe
initiative at the church,
whatever that is.
I've seen them before. Both of them.
They were carrying me somewhere.
That looks fresh.
Don't touch it.
I'm sorry.
I'm just trying to help.
How do they know you?
Those men, they
mentioned your name.
How do they know you?
They mentioned my name?
I don't know.
Believe me.
I come here when
I want to think.
It is strange, though,
something about this place ...
that haunts me.
I dream about being here,
finding something.
I see these images in my mind,
playing over and over,
they seem so real.
I come here when I'm
awake, looking, ...
but every time I do,
I feel they're further away.
But I keep coming back.
I always come back.
It's just not that easy ...
to forget your past, you know?
At least you have one.
Something to remember.
I'm sorry.
Maya, how did you find me?
I said, I got your money, man.
I was there.
I was taking the
trash out at work
when I heard a fighting in the alley.
Take it.
I saw what happened.
Put one in him, come on! Shoot the fucker!
I saw what he did to you.
Do it.
I couldn't do it.
I know.
Pussy! Are you afraid of getting
your hands dirty?
You want to fuck with me?
What do you mean, no?
Huh? That's not how it works here.
You're an accomplice to a murder,
We've just killed these guys.
I didn't.
Who's to say that you didn't?
You're a ghost, right?
You're in it for the ride, kid.
I don't want your help anymore.
Sorry about that, kid.
Better luck next time.
No amount of money
is worth that shit.
He set you up and left you for dead.
I couldn't just
leave you out there, ...
so I brought you to my house.
Despite of what everyone told me, ...
or what the news said.
There is nobody here.
It's just you and me.
You owe me one.
I saved you.
I want to show you
somewhere else ...
I think you'll like.
There's so much.
So much what?
I spent there all this time
and I had no idea.
I just feel stupid.
You're not.
Believe me.
You're brighter than most.
Why are you doing this?
Doing what?
Helping me.
I don't know.
You might think I'm crazy, but ...
I know your eyes.
I've seen them before.
I don't think you're crazy.
Just relax.
I love you.
How do you know bluebell?
I heard you talking in your sleep.
You kept repeating
the word bluebell.
I don't know.
It is a flower.
Who is this?
It's me, hard to see ...
the resemblance, huh?
Are you there?
You need to leave now.
Who is this?
There is no time for that.
He's coming for you.
You need to go.
What are you waiting for?
I'm trying to find Maya.
If you want answers,
meet me on Cross street.
Hey, what can I get you?
Just a decaf latte.
Here you go.
How much do I owe you?
That's 3.85.
There you go.
- Here you go.
- Thanks.
What do you think you're doing?
Hey! Hey, man, let go.
Let go, please! Let go!
Give me your hands.
No, no.
Put your hands behind
your back now.
Stop resisting! Give me your hands,
right now!
Give me your hand.
We were supposed to go away together ...
and now she's gone.
Can you help me?
Turn to your right.
What, where?
I said turn!
Face front.
Where am I?
Now go to sleep.
Damn it.
Sorry, Ruby.
Hey, it was an accident.
I had no control, you know?
Come on, we've got to get out of here!
Get up! Hey, I said,
let's go, c'mon!
He's watching you.
His eyes are everywhere.
You can't escape it.
You can't hide in the light.
There is nowhere to hide.
No, we don't get out.
We're all kind of stuck here.
We don't ever get out.
Rise and shine!
Your bail has been paid,
you're free to go.
Do you want to leave or not?
Get up.
Here, he gave you this.
Over here!
Who are you?
The name is Andrew, climb aboard.
Come on.
I'm not gonna bite you.
Going down.
Welcome to my extremely
humble home.
Sorry for the mess,
it's the maid's year off.
Do you think I
should let her go?
Ah, there it is.
It's beautiful.
The mark.
I forgot how jumpy I was at first.
Let's relax.
What do you want from me?
I want to help you.
I want to help us.
Come over here and look at this.
Come on, I'm not gonna hurt you.
Look familiar, huh?
You see now.
Who are you?
I'm your brother.
I escaped a long time ago from the
same fate you suffered.
I spent my whole life
searching for answers.
Everything, all of this, is a collection ...
of evidence and clues.
He has eluded me all this time.
But now you've come.
We can find him now and make him pay.
The provider.
How can I trust you?
He seezed him so firmly
with his ice-cold hand ...
that he could not
resist and he lead him ...
into a cave below the earth.
There he saw how thousands
and thousands ...
of candles were
burning in countless rows.
Some large, others
half-sized, ...
other small.
Every moment, some
were extinguished ...
and others burned up again ...
so that the flames seemed to leap upward, ...
hither and thither ...
in perpetual change.
How do you know that?
Because he read me the
same bed-time stories.
The same lies and
deceptions fed you.
How did you find me?
Fairly easily, I've been following you.
As you can see, I like
to keep an eye on things.
I've been watching your
story in the news.
You've picked up quite
a track record.
Eventually the police would
have locked you up for good, ...
if I hadn't bailed you out.
Are they still looking for me?
Of course they are.
Then why did they let me go?
Sometimes it pays to be a ghost.
I only mean that it's
very hard for someone ...
to pin anything on someone with ...
no record, no history.
That's the gift of your anonymity.
He's covered your tracks well enough.
I've taken care of the rest.
I'm the only one who can pin
anything on you now ...
or perhaps him.
You know him.
Paul Grant, of course.
He followed me around too
for a while.
I never could get my hands on
him, the slippery bastard.
So, when he turned up
wherever you were, ...
I just put two and two together.
I've seen him before too.
Ah, yes, Lucas.
He is one of His servants.
Praying on the innocent souls
once they're released.
Trying to control our
weak and atrophied minds ...
on the outside.
You see, you're not the only one.
We're not the only ones.
There are lots of us
out there, just look.
Some have no recollection at all ...
and won't believe the truth.
Others are just too far gone and
have lost the ...
sense of sanity.
You see, we're all part
of his sick game.
But together, we can
get answers.
I'm sorry, I saw what happened.
What ... what happened?
He took her.
The provider.
If you want to find her,
you're going to have ...
to find him.
To kill him.
For everyone he hurted and contained, ...
for every life he
said was too sensitive ...
to fly on his own, ...
for you, who had everything
denied ...
and taken from you!
Don't you want to know why?
An end to all the silence?
Well, close the door then!
What are we looking for?
She's involved in this, we
need to find out how.
Looks like she had some company.
Take a look.
I'll check the back.
Hey, look at this.
Well, time's up.
I've seen this before.
Well, take the picture,
it'll last longer.
Well, let's see. The
kitchen appears ...
to be closed for the night.
I don't suppose you
want any of this, ...
but I do.
Hey, look what I found in there.
I need to get back to Maya's.
Okay, let's go.
I need to be alone.
Bluebell, Bluebell.
I trust you.
That's good.
Let's leave.
What about your answers?
I don't need them.
All I need is you.
We'll go in the morning.
Don't leave.
I won't.
I promise.
You're insane, huh?
What do you think you're doing?
You just can't stand around
the scene of a crime ...
with your thumb up your ass.
You could have got me caught.
What do you mean, okay?!
It's not okay, sit down!
I'm in too deep right now.
Sorry, I'm sorry.
You have got a lot to learn.
You're not worth my time.
Then teach me.
It's about time.
Easy on the jacket!
Take it easy.
Think for a second.
What are you gonna do with me?
I want answers.
Keep walking.
Let me go.
You're not going anywhere, ...
not until I get answers.
I haven't any answers for you, kid.
Sit down.
- Hey, come on...
- Sit down!
I'm sitting down.
Now I want to know ...
what you've done with her.
Maya, where is she?
The problem is that you don't even know ...
what you want.
I mean how could you?
You don't even know your name.
Come on, let's stop...
Who did this to me?
Who did this to me?
Why am I like this?
He's the Mockenrue.
Mockenrue, Mockenrue, Mockenrue
Get off him.
You almost fucking killed him, you idiot.
He's got answers that we need.
He said Mockenrue.
Mockenrue, I've heard
that name before.
What are you fucking talking about?
Let it be.
Damn it.
What have you done?
You're supposed to help the
kid, not kill him.
He just screwed the whole ting up.
He tried to kill me.
I told you, Andrew was gonna get ...
someone killed.
That is enough! Check him.
Is he dead?
No, he's still breathing.
I think it's time now. We
need to end this.
Let's get him to the train.
It's about bloody time, reverend.
Let's go.
The next stop is Seven Sisters.
Next stop, Seven Sisters.
You've made it.
I knew you would.
I always said you were bright.
I am.
Let's have a look at you.
And whom I am well pleased.
I bet you'd like some answers.
Would you like to sit?
Do you mind if I sit?
Where to begin?
I'm a problem solver,
I've been one my whole life.
and I'm very good at it,
if I don't say so myself.
I've lost so much ...
so many people I loved ...
and cared for ...
to hate and violence.
I had a daughter years ago.
She was my light.
It was a week before
the police found her.
It ruined me.
I saw the problem
like many people had ...
down through history and
I saw it getting worse and worse ...
with no end in sight.
And so I decided that there must be another way.
We've done so much else
to solve problems ...
that are plagueing our planet.
Environmental collapse, disease, ...
and famine and what do we do?
We look to science to shed light on cures, ...
possible solutions to avoid
catastrophe, yes?
We've even gone sofar
as to set up ...
institutions all around
the globe to study ...
the idea of violence
and analyze what it is, ...
but you see, I grew impatient.
I was not satisfied with
mere academic acknowledgement.
I wanted something done.
I wanted action.
Peace has remained ...
an unobtainable phenomenon.
Not to sound simple-minded
about it, ...
but it is something that has eluded us ...
since the dawn of time.
Peace never existed.
It was always something that ... uh
we've continually fantasized ...
and evangelized. It was
always out of reach.
A hope that one day, ...
we could take a hold of it.
But I got tired of hoping.
I lost my hope a long time ago.
Till you came.
You're my hope, my
attempt at a solution.
An attempt at peace, if you would,
to see if it truly is ...
out of our reach.
Whether nature denies us ...
this right altogether.
How could you do this to me?
I never had a chance.
A chance at what?
You don't see.
No, I don't see.
I never saw anything
because of you.
I took a chance, I saw the path
you could have taken, ...
I lived it first hand myself.
I saved you from all the sleepless
nights ...
and the annoying emptiness, ...
and the enigmatic pain that
consumes our species.
I wanted to give you something more.
Your mother died in childbirth.
You had no father, no
family, no friends,
So I adopted you.
We tended for you
together, Sarah and myself.
You were our new beginning.
A reason for us to go on,
a reason for us to exist.
Yes, Sarah was my partner.
She loved you like a son.
Too much so.
She grew too attached,
she lost sight of the big picture ...
She wanted to bring you.
She could not continue, she
had to leave the project,
leaving me with everything.
So I continued all,
but by that time, ...
you were old enough
to be left alone.
The only thing remaining
was to teach you.
You were truly
bright, your potential of knowledge ...
was prodigious maybe for
lack of stimulation, ...
but you learned at an incredible rate.
Faster than anyone I've ever seen.
It's all right here.
Notebooks, journals.
Two and a half
decades of my work.
Our work.
Look at this.
Do you remember?
She never should have found you.
She put all my work in jeopardy.
Sarah and I made a mistake.
Maya was our daughter, but
I could not let her ...
influence the project.
So I pushed her away ...
and distanced myself.
She never understood and
after all those years ...
of neglect, she left.
Where is she?
With her mother now, I'm sure.
Learning her
whole life was a lie.
It's a lot to take in,
as I'm sure you're finding out.
Come on, Lucas.
Lift with your legs.
Hold him down.
What are you doing?
Peter did not say
anything about a tattoo.
I don't see Peter here, do you?
I'm in charge now.
Jesus Christ.
You're a liar.
Just another one of the
many, who saw to it that you ...
made it here in one piece.
I've been watching you
for a very long time.
You trust me, don't you?
Of course I trust you,
but this is not your fault, it's his.
No, I took part, I
agreed to this, ...
but we've gone too far.
Can't you see?
He's just a child.
No, he's an experiment.
Was nothing mine?
What is mine?
Someone else's time?
A smile?
What's in here.
What isn't yours?
Everything is yours, you
get to keep it all.
I don't belong here.
I have nothing.
For what?
For this!
Everything comes down to what happens now.
You are free.
To choose, to act, to forgive.
You have the chance
to renew our hope.
Everything depends on what
you decide to do now.
Remember why you are here, ...
just stick to the plan.
Don't touch me.
Listen to me.
You have every right to be mad.
Believe me, I understand
what you're feeling.
Do you understand how I feel?
You don't get to say that!
You said that you were my brother.
Why did you tell me that?
What did he say?
You said I needed to
kill the Provider.
Just calm down, take it easy.
I want Maya.
We told you, she's gone.
It was too much for her.
She had a choice,
just like you did ...
and she left.
I don't believe you.
You don't?
Did she tell she was leaving?
Or where she was going?
She was taken.
Was she?
Sarah told her all about ...
your pittiful existence,
if you can even call it that.
How you eat scraps in the dark, in ...
the dark down the basement of
a sadistic madman.
She knows who you
are, what you are.
And she left, just like he left.
Why are we here?
Because I trusted
the wrong people.
I was stupid.
I had it.
I lost it all.
Now I got nothing.
That's what happens
when you put faith ...
in the wrong people.
They take it away from you.
You got to remember that.
It's time to end this.
Where is she?
I told you, she's gone.
What did he say to you?
What has he done?
He has ruined everything,
all my work.
Where is she?
I don't know, I haven't
seen her in a long time.
You took her from me.
No, no, I...
No! I, I ...
You've ruined my life.
I tried to help you,
I tried to save you.
Do you remember the last
thing I said to you, ...
before I let you out?
This is it.
An end to all the silence.
I'm sorry.
Why have you done this to me?
There will be a day when everything ...
changes for you.
You'll lose everything
you have ever loved.
Everything you held close.
Everything you ever
believed in.
When that time comes, I
want you to remember ...
what I tell you now.
I have loved you as a son.
Know that everything you've been through, ...
everything I never gave you ...
was out of love.
You can't understand it
now, but you will.
The next stop is Seven Sisters.
You are everything I worked for ...
and hope for.
And you're all that I have left.
It's all come down to one moment ...
and one decision.
Please remember
this and know that ...
I'm sorry.
Are you awake?
Go to sleep.
