Giardino dei Finzi-Contini, Il

Too many people during the day.
Why are you still awake?
- Anything wrong?
- No, nothing.

You saw Ernesto's letter?
How would you like to visit him
in Grenoble for a few days?

We must get some money to him
before it's too late.

Too late for what?
Nothing. If a thing needs doing,
get it done.

I could leave tomorrow.
No, it takes a few days
to get a French visa.

Besides, to raise the money...
I have to sell our securities.
We must be cautious.
They're quick to accuse us.

- And they have lots of imagination.
- The French visa is no problem.

But will they let me out?
Why not?
We've not reached that point yet.
A change will do you good,
to leave Ferrara for a while.

- Good night.
- Good night, Father.

With all the 1 9- and 20-year-olds
they could draft...

why do they put the bite on us?
I've done my share.
Eighteen months in Ethiopia,
malaria and dysentery included.

Get someone else now!
- Where are we?
- We just passed Novara.

You're safe working at Fiat.
Without your guns,
how do we fight?

No, we're not safe.
Lots of our men have been called up.

All I ask is to stay in Italy.
Anything but Africa,
after what I saw.

Move over.
We really used poison gas?
We sure did!
