Evilenko (2004) - full transcript

In 1984, in Kiev, the communist teacher Andrej Romanovic Evilenko is dismissed from his position after a pedophilic act against a student. On 15 May 1984, the pedophile Evilenko begins to rape children, and then slashing the victims in pieces and eating them. The magistrate family man Vadim Timurouvic Lesiev is assigned to catch the serial killer and almost eight years later he finally captures the monster that killed fifty-five persons, most of them children and young women. On 22 May 1992, Evilenko goes to the court and on 14 February 1994 he is finally executed.

Once upon a time, there was
a little girl, just like you,

with hair just like yours
and eyes just like yours,

and she followed a cloud
and learned how to fly.

And after a while, since
no one had seen her,

well, every one thought
that the girl was dead.

So they had a funeral.

And the girl watched her own
funeral from way, way up there...

in the sky and she saw
that no one was crying.

And then she knew her mommy and
daddy didn't really love her.

So she stayed up in the sky
and never came down again.

Is that the end?



We are the pioneers
of the Soviet Union,

there are millions
and millions of us.

Do you see our flags?

In the wind they carry the
wonderful ideals of comrade Lenin.


Sir? Can I have my ball back?

This ball?

You mean to tell me that
this is your ball, Sasha?

Yes. My mommy gave it to
me for my birthday!

Your mommy?

Your birthday?

Your ball?

Well, you're lucky you
even have a mother.

Most of your comrades here
are not quite so fortunate.

We are all equal in here.

Nothing can be yours in this
institute, or his, or mine.

Your mother was very
wrong to buy you presents.

I'll have to have a...
word with her when I see her.

You may sit down now.

Not you.

It's your turn to
clean up today.




Why are you crying, Tonja?

Whores don't cry.

Stop whimpering come on.

No more tears.

Come, please, come here, come.

Oh, oh Tonja.

You're the only one.

The only one who really knows.

The others are
afraid of me, but not you.

Because you know how much
I care for you, don't you?

What were you showing to your
friend Kolya during class?


Oh no, no, no. I saw you.

Eh, you know I saw you,
you even blushed, yeah.

Just like you're blushing now.

Secrets cost money, it's only fair.

It's all yours you
take it, alright?

Show me.

Let me see if it's
worth the money.

It's the first time
you've seen a real man.

Scared, huh?

You like it too,
don't you, be honest.

You can touch him if you want.

Here, give me your hand.

Oh no? No.

He wants to be your friend.

He told me that he likes you
and he's dying to show you...

what happens to him
when you touch him.

He gets big, and if you treat
him right you're honest with him,

he can do anything...
there is nothing he can't do.

What, even fly?

Yeah, even fly... and
if you're very brave...

he'll let you fly with him.

Does that mean me
he can talk too?

Oh no, no, no, no
he doesn't talk to anyone.

He, he doesn't trust anyone.

Not even me?

No, no, no, not you, of course.

Alright then, make him talk.

Wait, wait a moment.


give him a chance to get big.

No, you're lying!

He can't talk. He
can't, because he's dead.

No, No, no, you.

I'm sorry about this,
Andrej Romanovich.

But little Tonja here
claims that you...

well, basically that you
tried to rape her?

You see, comrade...

I'm very fond of Tonja but
for some strange reason...

she seems to have nothing
but sex on her mind.

The fact that she's accused
me of raping her would seem...

to prove my point, wouldn't
you agree, comrade?

What's wrong with you, Tonja?

How could you make up
such a horrible story?

Do you think it's clever?

I didn't make up anything!

I told the truth!

And if you don't believe me,
look at his arm!

I stabbed him! Look at his arm!

The other teachers have been
inciting her against me,

you can be sure of that.

A conspiracy, you mean?

Oh, you took the words
right out of my mouth.

We're on the verge of chaos,

it's up to us good communists
to do something about it...

before it's too late.

Show me your arm,
comrade Evilenko.

I'll pretend I didn't
hear that, comrade.

And I'll pretend I
didn't hear this story.

I expect your resignation
within the hour, comrade Evilenko.

Come on, Andrej!

Hurry up you'll be
late for school!

I won't be going to the
school anymore, Fenja.

Oh, no, no, no.

I'll, I'll tell you
later this evening...

when you get home from work.

No, no, go on, Papocka.
Tell me now.

I made a discovery,
a terrible discovery.

The headmaster is part
of the conspiracy.

What? Surinov?

Yes, Surinov.
Up to his neck in it.

The other day one of the boys
asked the geography teacher...

what communism was...

and this is what
Tablinova answered to him.

She said: "communism is a
model society in which all men...

are supposed to be equal
but it's a utopian ideal",

in other words,
"an impossible dream".

Ah, can you believe that?

Oh, Andrej, what are you
going to do about it?

I went straight in to
Surinov and I told him...

if he tolerated anticommunist
doctrine in the classroom,

I had no alternative but
to hand in my resignation.

Good Andrej.

And what did he say?

Well, the bastard accepted it.

What? No, that's impossible!

Andrej, you must go and speak
to the Party straight away!

I will, Fenja, yes I will.

But, but it's...
I've got to be careful.

Very careful.

No. Andrej, listen to me,

you can't give up now.

You must go straight away
to the Party...

and tell them how serious this is.

I know.

Why don't you write
them a letter?

Oh, you're so good at that.

Go now.
You don't want to be late.

Have you been waiting long?

I was late for the bus.

- What's your name?
- Larissa.

I bet you're eleven
years old, Larissa.


I expect you're
wondering how I knew that?


Well, that's easy.

I teach little girls like you.

I'm a school teacher, you see?


Let me guess.
You got a bad grade today.

How do you know?

Well, a good teacher
knows everything.

I don't expect your mother
would be very proud of you...

to go home late with a bad grade.

Larissa... Don't cry, don't cry.

I tell you what...

hey, why don't I take you home?

My car's parked over
there behind those trees.

Come on.

In order to continue
the process of the perestroika,

in order to advance
and speed up the reforms,

in order to protect democracy,
in order to efficiently promote...

I'm going out Fenja.

I can't stand this
disgusting scene.

- I'll be back soon.
- Alright dear.

Are you Evilenko
Andrej Romanovich?


I've come straight from Moscow.

From Moscow?

I'm here to give
these back to you.

My letters?

What do they think of
my letters it in Moscow?

Nowadays, there are not many
people who think as you do.

I'm a communist and I
will die a communist,

I have already lost
my job at the school...

because of my ideals.

There is a desk waiting for you.

Officially it's a
very ordinary job...

but you will be working for us.

Who exactly are you?

I am General Tabakov.


Right now we need
comrades we can trust.

And I feel that we can trust you.

The head of the department
is a man called Bagdasarov,

he used to work for us,
but now he's gone over...

to the Gorbachev side.

We need to prove that he steals.

Do you think you can do it?

I'll do my best.


If there any problems...
do not hesitate to call me.

- What's your name?
- Pavel Aleksandrovic.

I bet you've skipped
off school today,

didn't you Pavel Aleksandrovic?

I got special permission.

If you got special permission
why have you...

got your schoolbooks with you?

Oh relax, Pavel.

You needn't be afraid of me.
I'm not going to tell on you.

I'm just wondering though,
what you're going to do...

when the conductor comes by.

That's not gonna do you much good.

Don't you know that he's
got a list of all the boys...

missing from the school?

Sit down, it's alright.

Do you want to
get off the train?

The next station
is in half an hour.

There's an answer
for everything.

I tell you what...
you go to the toilet and wait.

Lock the door.

As soon as the conductor
has come through the carriage,

I'll come and give
you the "all clear".

And I'll knock... three times.

My little monster, huh!



Who's that?

That's mama.


"The wood strip"
You ever heard of it?

The man who kills children?


Not just children.

Women too.

As long as they're
young enough of course.

How many has he killed?

How many have you heard?

Three or four, I think.

Well, it used to be
one every three months.

But now he's getting
away with it.

- The murders are increasing.
- So how many?


What's worse we
don't have a single lead,

no witnesses, no clues, nothing.

He's constantly on the
move, striking everywhere.

The other day I
was in Leningrad.

He murdered a little girl there.

Are you so sure it's
always the same person?

You should see what
he does to those kids.

Killing is too kind a word.

First he rapes them, then slices
them to pieces, and eats them.

- Eats them?
- Yes.

- Why me?
- For many good reasons.

Give me one, anyone.
Hello sweetheart.

Because you're a Party member.

There are lots of investigators
who are Party members.

Not anymore, unfortunately.

Besides, you're by far the best.

Give me another one.

I'll give you one which might
seem a little strange to you.

And what's that?

Your family.

What's my family
got to do with it?

You haven't told me the
name of your daughter.


It's little girls like Mariam
who are in danger right now,

my dear Vadim Timurovich.

Shall we play?



Well, Evilenko.

How this reports coming along?

All that traveling around,
all those inspections...

and you still haven't
produced a single sentence.

What do you do in your
free time... Evilenko?

A little bit of murdering
on the side, perhaps?

I helped a friend
earlier this morning,

we slaughtered a pig.

Well, anyway, next time
don't be so selfish.

Bring us a few sausages.

That's my daughter!

That's my daughter!

Let go of me!

Let go of me!






- Traces of sperm?
- I don't know.

I should take that
branch out first.

Well take it out then.

What are you waiting for?

I've already tried.

Couldn't do it.

Well, get some help then.

I thought maybe we could
take her away like this.

Are you joking, doctor?

Her mother is here...

she's over there behind those trees.

Do you want her to see her
daughter pierced...

like a hunting trophy?

Ah, you're right.

Well, the sperm test
isn't so important.

Who knows how many we'll
find of the same group.

The killer's sperm is our only
lead right now, Dr. Amitrin.

So remove the branch
before it gets dark.

What's her name?

Irina Radinova.
Only twelve years old.

Looked older, didn't she?

Get someone to help
Amitrin with that branch.

And tell him to hurry up.

Yes, sir!


Give Boris a hand!

Has he confessed?

Not yet.

But his kalashnikov was
found near the victim.

He looks very young.
How old is he?



Nosov. Vladimir Nosov.

- A conscript?
- No, a full-time soldier.

- How long?
- Three years.




I know you didn't kill that boy.

So you've nothing
to worry about.





I know that you were there...

so you must have
seen something, uh?

Am I right?

Did you see the killer?


How about this?

I'll bring in the killer
and I'll show him to you...

and if you recognize him, all
you have to do is point him out.

If you agree, give me a sign.
Close your eyes.


Frolov, Ramenski. Go!


Every one get in line.

Get the benches.

They can't see you.

Is he there?

Do you recognize him?

That's him?

Hey, come on, pal.

I'm going to need one
a lot bigger than this.

It's too big, if your
brain's anything to go by.

That'll do it.

Take a look at these photos.

Have a look at these pictures.

Name, surname and father's name.

Aron Richter.
My father's name was Abraham.

- Jewish?
- Yes.

- Occupation?
- I'm a doctor.

It says here you have a
soft spot for children...

Yes, yes I like children a lot.

I'd love to have had some.

You need a wife for
that, Dr. Richter.

So I'm told.

But you can't have a wife or children
because you're a homosexual,

is that correct?

I know lots of homosexuals
with wives and children.

In 1975 you were arrested and
convicted for molesting a boy...

in a cinema, ring any bells?

You'll have a hard
time finding him.

We know.

It takes a very unusual type
of man to do a thing like this.

Oh, on the contrary.
It could be anyone.

Me. You. Him. Anyone.

We're talking about
pedophilia and cannibalism.

Man is a ferocious animal,
didn't you know that?

And you really think anyone
could be capable of this?

If one man is capable
of it, any man is.

- Why?
- Why?

Do you want to know why?

Well, it's simple.

We used to be a flock of sheep
and now we're a pack of wolves.

Are you a surgeon, Dr. Richter?

Theoretically speaking yes,
but I've never...

actually operated on anyone.

This man is a lot more
skilled than I am.

- What's your field?
- Psychoanalysis.

- You're a psychiatrist?
- No, a psychoanalyst.

What's the difference?

Psychiatrists generally put
their patients into asylums.

I don't.

- And where do you put them?
- Nowhere.

They come to me, at home.

And how do treat them, at home?

They talk. I listen.

Thank you.

Over there and then you can go.

I was at home with my wife.

No one else?

No one else.

Take a look at these photographs.

Do you find them amusing?

Not at all...

I broke my glasses.

You see, comrade...

Don't call me comrade.

Why don't you want me
to call you comrade?


I asked you why you didn't
want me to call you comrade!

I'm asking the questions here.

Don't you realize
without communism,

you wouldn't even exist?

I asked you for
your occupation.

I'm a Party member.

I demand to speak
to your superior.

The Party doesn't
mean anything in here.

Don't make things worse
for yourself, lad.

Just let me speak
to your superior.

Is something wrong?

I didn't realize it's become
a crime to be a communist.

It hasn't.

I happen to be a communist too.

So shall we continue the
questioning now, comrade?

- That's why I'm here.
- Occupation?

I used to teach literature at
Boarding School No. 32 in Kiev,

now I work for the railways.

And what do you do
at the railways?

Eh, inspect the network,
report malfunctions,

count the sleepers.

So you've gone from teaching
literature to counting sleepers.

That's a strange career
move, wouldn't you say?

It wasn't my fault.

They forced me to
leave the school.

Who did?

The perestrojka crowd.

What's perestrojka
got to do with it?

There's a war going on.

And it's time for you to make the
decision which side you're on.

It says here that your
father, Roman Evilenko,

died in hard labor.


My father was an
Enemy of the People.

He deserved what he got and
I'm glad I never met him.

Then you should be informed
that the so-called...

Enemies of the People
have been rehabilitated.

They now call them
"victims of Stalinism".


Two years ago a woman by the
name of Irina Zubova...

accused you of attempted rape.

Irina Zubova was a prostitute.

Does it say that in
your little book too?

No, I'm afraid it doesn't.

No! Of course not.

The whores and the thieves
have taken all the power now.

You can go now.

But first step behind that screen
over there for a sperm sample.

Oh, aha.

I'm afraid I can't do that.

What do you mean you can't?

Well, wouldn't be
any point in it.

Nothing will happen.

Would you mind explaining?

It doesn't work.

Aren't you married?

I fail to see the connection.

And what about that
woman you tried to rape?

That's what she says.
She's a liar!

Of course, if a whore's word
is worth more than mine.

We'll so on find out what
your word is worth, comrade.

I'm detaining you.

Good evening, Mrs. Evilenko.

Vadim Lesiev of the
Attorney General's office.

- Can we talk upstairs?
- We can talk here.

I have some delicate questions.

I think it best
if we go upstairs.

Why have you
arrested my husband?

Your husband is
suspected of murder.

Do you mean Andrej's
killed someone?


There have been many murders.

Oh, really?

How many?

The number is unimportant.

Oh, I think the number
is very important.

How many murders haven't
you been able to solve?

I'm afraid I have to
ask you some questions...

about your sexual relationship.

We don't care about sex.

We think this sex everywhere
you see is just disgusting.

I see. But you are married.

And I take it you
have sexual relations.


You don't have sexual relations?


Since when?

We don't care about sex.
I've already told you that.

You've never wanted children?

Andrej had lots of children when
he was teaching at the institute.

And they all loved him.

Children of your own.

Children of our own?
What does that mean?

If you're a communist,
children belong to every one...

and every one has to take
responsibility for them.

They didn't ask to be
born into this world.

Do you mind telling me
why you got married?

Because Andrej and I have
always loved each other.

What are you doing?

Who is he?

Your superior's superior.

Just let him know that I'm here.

Good morning.

Good morning.

Do we have the results back yet?

Yes, but most of the suspects
have the same sperm group...

as the murderer's.

Twenty-three of
them out of thirty.

That only eliminates seven.

Frolov, we must release
the four detainees.

One of them is already out.

- Who?
- Evilenko.

He was collected by two KGB
men yesterday afternoon.

So Evilenko has
dealings with the KGB?

I tried asking them but
those guys never answer.

Do you remember me?

Unfortunately I do.

And what about the
man I'm looking for?

Do you think he's interesting?

Yeah, yes he must
be very interesting.

Yes, it's a pity
he's not my patient.

Do you think the man's insane?

Do you mind telling me
how many he's killed?



Over how long a period?

- Five years.
- Five years.

So how do you hope to find him?

Who knows?

Maybe with your help.

Me, help the police?

I'm not a policeman,
doctor Richter.

I'm a Magistrate.

Well, if there are
no more questions.

As you wish, if I am a cop
then I'm telling you to sit down.

P lease, you have to
help me and you will.

Is that the way you want it?

I'll repeat the question.

Do you think the man's insane?

The answer is yes.

He's mentally ill.

What makes you so sure?

You have to be
mentally ill to kill...

for the simple pleasure of killing.

Does this illness have a name?

- Schizophrenia.
- Is it?

Schizophrenia always stems
from an identity crisis.

The only identity for the
soviet man is communism.

Communism is dying,
the soviet man, in order...

not to die turns to the
survival instinct.

Man eats man, like at
the beginnings of time.

So you're saying
that we're all sick.

Since you used all the insane
asylums to shut the mouths...

of dissidents and I mean
our healthiest minds,

well... I presume the real
insane must still be out there,

wouldn't you say?

Do you think he's on his own?

Yeah. And very lonely.

You might even say he
is an exceptional being.

You sound fascinated.

Of course I am. Aren't you?

I just want to catch him.

And... what will
you do with him?

Me? Nothing.

The court will decide.

They'll sentence him to death?

Yes, I hope so.

You don't understand
and so you kill him.

And you'll kill all the
others who come after him.

What others?

Oh, there'll be
others, you'll see.

There are millions of
annihilated men out there,

sick men ready to become crazy.

So, you and I, shall
we work together?


You want this man
just as much as I do.

- Yeah, but I want him alive.
- Why do you want him alive?

I've already told you.

This country is on the
verge of a major epidemic.

He's the virus.

You kill him you'll
never find the antidote.


He's here.

It's for you.



- Incredible.
- What?


There isn't a single tear,
not even a button missing.


It's as if she stripped
of her own free will.

I see you've already
started to work, Doctor.

I haven't started a damn thing.

In order to work, I should
get all the information I need.

- Alright.
- Alright what?

I'll give you access to the
information that you need.

Comrade Bagdasarov, I just
wanted to tell you...

that I firmly believe
in your innocence.

You see, Andrej Romanovich.

I know perfectly well that
it was you who reported me.

And, and don't get me wrong.

I'm not blaming you.

You only did what you had to do.

Yes, comrade Bagdasarov!

It's just that, if you could
put in a good word for me,

I'm quite sure it would
make a difference.

But of course,
I'll see what I can do.

I don't know how to thank you.

Think nothing of it.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

- What did he say to you?
- Nothing.

He just tried to bribe me
to keep my mouth shut.

Thank you.

Did you bring a rubber?

If you wanna do it without
a rubber, it'll cost more.

I'm a vegetarian, Miss Zubova.

I don't want to do anything.
I just want to talk.

How do you know my name?

What are you?

A cop or a fag?

Both, miss.


No, you're not a cop.

You're too polite.

And you don't look queer either.

I can assure you.

How did you report him?

You didn't even know his name.

You know how long I
spent looking for him?

I met him in front
of the station.

And then it's like
I fainted or something.

I think he hypnotized me.

He must have because suddenly
I was here on my bed and...

he was standing in front of me,
with a razor in his hand.

So I started screaming and
luckily the neighbors heard me.

And he ran off.

Do you believe he hypnotized me?

What will you do
when she goes away?

What do you mean? She's a child.

Yes, but she'll grow up.

She'll leave home, get married,
and have children...

and what will you do then?

I'll console myself with you.


The champagne's arrived!

- Excellent!
- So...

I want to drink... to our children.

May God... if he exists,

watch over them and
protect their young,

fragile lives.

Hello, Doctor Richter.

What are you doing here?

I've been looking
for you for days.

Well, I don't have
anything and I...

I don't think I ever will.

Perhaps you're not looking
in the right places.

The right places don't exist.

You see, I don't think
we'll ever find him.

Why not?

Because I'm not certain
that it's just one man.

That's the only
certainty we have.

- Well, it's unfounded.
- What makes you say that?

Too many victims,
too many murders,

there has to be more
than one killer.

We've always talked
about one man alone,

I remember you describing
him as an exceptional being.

And do you remember
I said that we might be...

on the verge of a major epidemic?

There is nothing you can
do about it...

he could be anyone.

Yes... yes you're probably right.

It could be anyone, maybe
even a lonely old man...

who comes to the cinema to eye
up the kids and wank in the dark.


What's the matter with you?




Andrej! At last!

I've been looking
for you my whole life.

I know the fear that is
inside you because...

Because, uh...

I am your father... Andrej.

Come... come on.

Come into your father's arms.

Come on, son.

I know how much you've
missed me, but I'm here now.

Come here, I beg you. Come...

Your father...

Your father is
proud of you, son.

We haven't had a chat
for such a long time.

I know, I know, I
know it's my fault.

I know how much
you've missed me.

Yeah, I know what
you've been through.

I'm back now and I'll
never leave you again.


Never, Andrej.

I'm, I'm so...

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry, sorry.

A child...

I saw a child die
in front of my eyes.

Oh, she died...

It wasn't my fault...

wasn't my fault.

She died... it wasn't my fault.

That's him alright.

We've been hunting the killer
for years and he managed to...

track him down in a few weeks.


No. No!

Mariam. Oh my God.

Mariam, are you alright?

Are you crazy?

What was that all about?

Can't you see the blood?

She's got a nose bleed.
She's had them before.

We must take her
to the doctor...

I've already been to the doctor.

What's the matter with you?

Why are you behaving like this?

I can't believe it...

that it's you who's
hunting down that monster.

What do you know about it?

The child killer who
eats his victims?

Every one knows about him.

Times have changed,
Comrade Lesiev.

You can't hide everything
from people anymore!

Darling, I agree with you
and that's why I'm doing...

everything I can to
make people aware of it.

Oh, yeah?

Every one except your own wife?

I'm telling you now, aren't I?

And you know I shouldn't.

I'm only doing it to
put your mind at rest.

Put my mind at rest?

Have you any idea of the
risks you're exposing us to?

What risks?

You don't think he
knows who's after him?

How should I know?

I don't know him.

I haven't the faintest
idea of who he is.

And has it never occurred to
you that he might know you?

No, it never crossed my mind.

That's a lie, Vadim Timurovich.

If that were true, why
did you scream like that?

Because that's
when I realized...

When I saw Mariam's blood.

You have to believe me.

I believe you.

I always believe you, don't I?

What's happening?


Where are you going?

What's going on?

I understand now.

Understand what?
Why are you leaving?

I need you.

Yes, that's why I'm leaving.

You are leaving
because I need you?

No, I'm leaving because
you've got to catch that man.

You have to and you will, my love.

Want a go, miss?


Oh, shit.

What do you want?

Leave me alone.

Look, I don't want money.

I know you like me.

You're just a bit nervous.

Go away, please. Just go away.

It's ok, I'm going to make you
feel really good.


Don't move!


How many men do you have
guarding these barracks?

Twenty but we have
four six hour shifts.

So we're talking
about eighty men?


Do you think it's possible
no-one saw or heard anything?

It seems pretty unlikely.

Would you allow me
to question your men?

I don't see why not.

I found this.

- What date is on it?
- First of May.

Have you been able to
time the death yet?

Difficult to say off-hand.

Three days, maybe four.

How long will you
need to find out?

Three days, maybe four.

Do you think it's
funny, Dr. Amitrin?

No. I'm sorry. It's just...

I can't take it anymore.

I want the results of that
autopsy on my desk...

by 8: 30 tomorrow morning.


On the first of May, a
woman was murdered here...

On your territory.

I therefore consider you
all equally responsible.

I'm going to give you one
chance to avoid a trial.

And that's to remember if you saw
anything suspicious that day.

Private Romanenko
Andrej Aleksandrovich!

I'm listening.

I might have seen a man
coming out of Wood Strip No. 37...

at around 19:00 hours on the
first of May and I also think...

I might have stopped him.

What do you mean you think
you might have stopped him?

Correction, sir.

I know I stopped him.

Then why did you say you
might have stopped him?


I don't know.

I can't remember.

But I've got it
written down here.

First of May, 1990. 19:07 hours.

A man with blood on his face.

Is this the man's name?

I think so.

And you can't
remember seeing him?

Vadim Timurovich.

I knew you could do it.

I think we should arrest
him tomorrow morning...

when he leaves the house.

- No, we should wait.
- Wait for what?

I want to catch him
with his pants down.

You want another murder?

Thirty-six or thirty-seven
won't make much difference.

We can't run the risk of
losing him just because...

we're in a hurry to win.

We can't play with
people's lives like that.

Say you arrest him, what then?

What have we got?

A note written by some soldier
who can't even remember seeing him.

We've got more than that.

We're still gathering evidence.

We've looked into the
movements of Evilenko...

over the past years and they
coincide with murders...

committed outside Kiev.

So what?

What does that prove?

They're just coincidences,
suppositions, that's all.

They won't get you very far.

I think I have enough
evidence to get...

a confession out of him.

Why should he confess?

- Because he's a sick man.
- What's wrong with him?

He's mentally ill.

Everything that he's done, proves

Only a sick man
kills without motive.

So what do you imagine
his disease is then?


I didn't realize you'd been
studying psychiatry on the side.

But let's leave the diagnosis
to a real doctor, shall we?

Meanwhile, do it my way.

Are you sure he's in there?

We haven't budged.
Not even to take a leak.

You two take him
straight to the aquarium.

I thought we'd been
given orders to wait.

I'm in command here
you'll do as I say.

Whose idea was this?

Just to soften him up a bit,
I thought...

You thought? Get them out now.

- Get me a white coat.
- Yes, sir.


I'm Comrade Lesiev.
I'm a doctor.

How are you feeling?


They won't get away with it,
don't worry.

- Are you worried?
- Of course I am.

Look at what they've
done to you.

You've got nothing to
worry about, comrade.

They didn't do anything to me.

No-one can do anything to me.

I'm already dead.

Listen, Andrej.
You're not dead yet.

But you're in danger.

Every one wants you dead because
of all the things you've done.

I can help you because
I know how sick you are.

If you want to help yourself
you have to tell me everything.

Let's start from the beginning.

I was born in Ekaterinburg,

on the 20th of October 1940.

The sun was black that morning.

The sky was dark
and it was cold.

They abandoned me.

- He saved me.
- Who saved you?

- It was not a man.
- What was it?

A lion.

I was inside the lion's mouth,
but I wasn't afraid.

And the lion took me into the
woods and he left me there.

But before leaving...
he told me to choose.

I chose to live my
life as a communist.

Who was the lion? Stalin?

No names, comrade. No names.

The lion is dead, they killed him.

- Who did?
- The cowards.

What cowards?

The cowards don't know
the lion is inside me now.

They can't kill him anymore.

You tell that to Mr. Gorbachev
the next time you see him.

What's Gorbachev
got to do with it?

That's it. That's enough.

I can't tell you everything.

If you were a true communist, you'd
be able to figure it out for yourself.

Clothes off.

Let me see what
they've done to you.

It's quite a number
they did on you.

But fortunately
there's nothing broken.

You're not a doctor.

What makes you say that?

I can tell by the
way you look at me.

You look at me like a woman.

Why? Because I'm looking at it?

Hey, I'm talking about him.

Well, I'm afraid,
he doesn't hear you.

Right. I forgot.
You're impotent.

That's your whole
problem, isn't it?

That's not my problem, comrade.
That's my privilege.

- But you wouldn't know about that.
- Know about what?

Don't... don't ask stupid questions.

If I tell you... we're finished.

You've got to tell me.

If you keep it in any longer,
you'll explode.

Alright, comrade. I'll tell you.

The truth is that you're
not impotent at all.

Not when you spot a child
on the street you're not.

What happens in those
moments, Andrej?

What do you do, huh?

You stare at him.

Is that what you do?

You stare at him,

just like you're
staring at me now.

Where are you taking me?

What's your name?

Vadim Timurovich.

And why aren't you at home
at this hour of the day...

Vadim Timurovich?


Because my father
and mother are dead.

I'm sorry, don't cry.

I'm going to be the one
to look after you now.

But you must do
everything I say.

Take your clothes off now.

What the hell is he doing?

Has he gone mad?

That's it, I've
had enough of this!

No-one goes in.

Come closer, Vadim Timurovich.

Oh, where are you taking me?

Never mind. Come here.

Now, I'm going to
help you discover...

something you could never
even imagined existed.

Give me your hand, come on, huh?


Do you feel it?


Do you like it?



Do, do you feel it?

Do you feel it?

Yeah, it's starting to grow,

starting to grow,
you feel, do you?

This is what it feels like when
you sink your teeth into a child,

this is how it feels when
your mouth is full of blood.

Blood that excites you
and fills your prick,

look at it, look at it!

Look at your prick!

You disgust me!

Will you tell me, Andrej?


It's in my desk, in the office.

But you can't read it.

You'll have to bring it to me.

I'm the only one
who can read it.

Well done, Lesiev,
I'm really impressed.

So you decided to go ahead
and arrest him, did you?

It must have been
difficult to catch him?

Evilenko has confessed.


So where's this confession then?

- What's this?
- His diary.

He's put it all into drawings.

Everything he did to his
victims, every single detail,

it's all here.

Now there can be no doubt
that the man's insane.

The only nutcase around
here is you, Lesiev.

This diary, as you
call it, is useless.

It's just a comic book.

If it weren't so gory
I'd give it to my grandson.

Your career ends
right here, Lesiev.

If you go, we all go and I'm
speaking for everyone here.

Thank you.

But please stay.

Don't allow this
experience to go to waste.

Because I'm afraid there will
be many killers like him...

and someone has to catch them.

Vadim Timurovich!

Quick! Come downstairs!

He says he'll talk only to you.

He wants to talk to you, Lesiev.

You want me to interrogate him?

He asked for you.

After all, both of you
are Communists, aren't you?

I don't see the connection.

It's very simple.

You got us into this mess
now you can get us out of it.

If you can't get a confession
out of comrade Evilenko,

I'll just haul you
before the court instead!

Good day.

Igor Mikailovich!

- The diary.
- I'm keeping it.

I promised I'd bring it to him.

You promised him?

It'll be more
difficult without it...

Well it wasn't much good to me,
so you can do without it.

Would you like a clean one?

But why?

I'm in here.

In there?

But not anymore.

I couldn't bring you
your diary, Andrej.

I knew it.

I suppose that will make it
more difficult for you to remember.

If you look into my brain you
will see the sky, comrade.

But will you...

allow me into your brain?

In order for me to
stop you coming in,

I first have to let you out.

Here's a list of the
names, places and dates.

I'd like you to
take a look at it.

That's thirty-six names.

I don't think we've left
anyone out, have we?

What's wrong?

- Get some paper and a pen.
- We've got the tape-recorder.

No... you'd better
write it down.
