War and Peace

That's the way.
Lay me down like a stone, O God,
and raise me up like a loaf.

What prayer was that
you were saying?

I was praying.
Don't you pray?

Yes, I do. But what did you say...
Frola and Lavra?

Ah, the horse's saints.
One must pity the animals too.
Come on, Grey.
Come over here. That's right.

You get warm and lie down.
That's it.

That's right.
I thought you were asleep.
No, I was lying here
watching you...

enjoying you,
being thankful for you.

Sleep, my dearest.
No, not yet.
I want to keep my eyes open.
I want to look at you.
You know...
you're not the girl I saw
dancing all night...

the girl who whispered
on the balcony to the moon.

You're something much better.
How serene you are.
How valuable.
I love you so much.
It's a terrible thing.
Only at a moment like this
can one talk so openly.

Until now, I knew
nothing about love.

I was a great hater, Natasha.
I hated so many things,
but most of all I hated you.

You had every right.
I love you more than I've ever
loved anything on this earth.

Maybe this place has something
to do with it, this monastery.
