Vlad Ryashin, and Alexander Kushayev Directed by Sergey Komarov Mark says that we weren’t on best terms. But it’s important for me
to be on good terms with you. After all, we have so much in common.
Men we love, for example. How may you love Mark? You lost memory, didn’t you? Or did you meet him
and fall in love at once? There is love from first sight,
as you know. As soon as I saw him,
I felt that it’s my man. The same with Anton. You don’t believe me, do you? Anton’s happiness is very important
for me. -I came up with a wish.
-What is it? I want to go to a trampoline. We went there with mum.
One may ride cars there too. It’s a deal. Will you go with us? Do you think I’ll let Anton
go on his own with you? Great. You’re going with us, then. Your favorite Chinese food. Do you remember that I love wok? -With vegetables and mushrooms, right?
-Right. Hi. Battle friends are on duty again.
And together again. The expertise? The DNA of Nadezhda Starodubtseva
matches Anton’s DNA. …matches Anton’s DNA. -How are you?
-Fine. -Damn it.
-What is wrong? I can’t reach my dad on the phone. -Will you finish it?
-No, eat. How is he doing? How may a person in a wheelchair do? Right. I still can’t imagine him
in this state. He is as stubborn as a sheep. He is inventing some equipment
for training, he doesn’t trust doctors, he works out on that equipment
but to no avail. I found a neurosurgeon.
People say he is a real magician. I was at dad’s place yesterday
and forgot to tell him about that doctor. And he won’t answer his phone! So what’s the problem?
Go to your dad. Come on. Come on. You know, I think I will go. Go. I wanted to tell you one more thing
before I forget. I was at the moor by the place
where Nastya’s body was found. There are neglected industrial zones
around that place. However, there is a rescue base on the other bank of the lake. I think somebody might be
on duty there… 24/7. Hi, dad. What has happened? Can you imagine?
I went to the supermarket to buy food. I forgot my phone in the car. When I came back, the window was broken,
and phone stolen. Comrade Investigator, you still
have a lot of work to do in this city. I was calling you but in vain. You shall write a statement to the police. Are you mocking at me? The ex-head of the criminal police
will complain to the police that his mobile phone had been stolen?
It was so old, anyway. I’ll buy a new one. And register the SIM-card
in my name this time. You didn’t like the fact that the phone
was registered in my name, did you? No. But everything shall be in order. OK. Register it in your name.
Be a big boy. Why did you come? Why aren’t you at work? I’m playing truant.
Because of you, by the way. Dad, I found a doctor. Professor Koretskiy,
one of the best surgeons of Russia. He will see you in two hours. -Alina!
-Dad, why not? Because I’ve already seen that Koretskiy. Why didn’t you tell me about it? You’re busy with other things.
Plus, you know… all these charlatans can do
is extort money from people. But one may still try! I am trying! You know that I’m trying. I’ve read all the books about such cases. I know more than all of them,
put together. I don’t want to turn to doctors. -You’re so stubborn!
-You’re stubborn yourself. -OK, do as you wish.
-Alina? I am not offended. But I need to run now. Remember never to give him nuts, he is very allergic to them. This is serious.
He may get the Quincke’s edema. -Yes, yes. Horrible!
-This is horrible. I hope you will remember about nuts? I got it about nuts. Nuts may be in ice-cream,
chocolate and cakes. -You shall check everything carefully.
-Stop being so nervous. -May I have more raisins?
-Of course. No, you can’t. You better go ride some more.
Just don’t go far away, Anton. You’re buying him. No,
I am just trying to restore our relations. Every child loves ice cream but it doesn’t mean that you may use it
to restore relations. You don’t have any contact
with him at all. -Oh, sure. I shouldn’t have come to you.
-Absolutely. You got into Mark’s head… Of course, I did. Mind, it was not hard. If you behave in this way,
I won’t try to please you. -You shouldn’t.
-Sure. I have taken a decision. I won’t come to terms with you.
I don’t want it. I am not asking you about that. -But I will raise my child myself.
-No, you won’t. I will. Where is he? He was close, eating ice cream. Until… How could you two miss his disappearance? I let him ride the cars.
We needed to talk. -You have talked, haven’t you?
-Calm down. -Where is the child now?
-I don’t know. God, when will you calm down?
I told you that I’ve made a decision! Yes? -Is Anton your grandson?
-Yes. What happened? He came up to me by the trade center
and said that he was lost. He gave me your address.
I wanted to take him to the police, but he talked me
into bringing him to your place. He was begging me. So do take the boy. I’ll open the gates now. Good. And we had a ride for 300 rubles. Yes, of course. I’ll pay. Come in. They were quarreling with granny,
so I left. I got sick and tired of it. Is it very bad? It’s fine. Don’t worry. Get undressed. I have pasta and sausages. -Sausages?
-Yes. If he surfaces, will you have info on him? OK, I’ll call in an hour. Thanks a lot. Yes? What are you doing? The child came in a taxi God knows where. It’s good that the taxi driver turned out
to be a good man and gave him a lift. Mark, are you out of your mind? Can you see anything around
except for your girlfriend? Come and pick the child up. And mind –
if something like this happens again, I’ll use all my connections to deprive you
of the parental rights. Did you get me? -He went to his grandpa.
-I’ll go with you. Talk to me. How are you? I want to live with mum.
But dad doesn’t listen to me. Dad is a bit confused at the moment. Mum has always been talking to me,
and you, and granny. But dad only talks to auntie Masha. Dad has lots of work now. But you know that he loves you, don’t you?
Right? I know but I’m still offended. Won’t you give me back to dad? I think you’ll have to go back to dad. Who did you draw? Mum. Can’t you see? She looks exactly like her. THE RESCUE STATION -Hello.
-Hello. -Are you the warden?
-I am. -Was the 8th your shift?
-It was. -How often do you come here?
-We work two days, and rest two. Do you smoke a lot? Yes, can’t quit this shit. Did you go out to smoke that night? I did. I wake up two
to three times per shift, drink tea and smoke. Did you want to ask about the car? What car? -It came around midnight.
-Go on. I was standing here smoking
when a car arrived. It came and switched the lights off
at once. It stayed for about five to ten minutes.
And left. -The model of the car?
-Don’t know. Was it big or small? A jeep, a sedan?
Did you notice something? No. It was dark, plus it was far away. I only noticed the car
because to the front light. When the driver switched them off,
no car was seen anymore. Are you sure it was on the 8th? Of course. I have a schedule.
The fishermen usually stop there. But they come in the afternoon
or early in the morning, and this one came
in the middle of the night. -He came after midnight, right?
-Yes. -And stayed for five-ten minutes?
-Yes. Then a girl was found there. What does that mean? That the driver was the maniac? We’ll sort it out. Thank you. We shall go to the road police. -Why?
-We’ll check the cameras again. -Thank you.
-Thanks. Goodbye. Here, the car passes the first camera, and in 6-7 minutes on average it gets
into the lens of the second camera. The same goes for the opposite direction. Look at the scheme. Here is one camera,
here is the second one. Here is the old moor
where the body was found. Are there fueling stations or cafes there? No, there is no place to stop. -A turn, maybe?
-No. Does the car pass the distance between
the cameras in seven minutes on average? -Yes.
-I see. We need an interval from midnight
to 2 a.m. and a car that passed the first camera and reached the second
later than in seven minutes. Even more than in ten minutes
as the warden said that the driver stayed
at the bank for 5-10 minutes. Plus, no less than five minutes are needed
to take the body out of the boot. It will mean
that the car stopped somewhere. -I’m going to get coffee.
-OK. Where could he disappear
if there are no crossroads or turns? -I don’t know.
-Give me the photo. The four-wheeler. Maybe there is some road
that is not yet mapped? He couldn’t just vanish into the thin air! Will you get home on your own? I will. Oh,
Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson arrived! Where have you been? In a cafe, having a business-lunch? They don’t let me in
saying that I am drunk. I am drunk indeed but since when
does it prevent a pathologist to work? You’re a different case. You shall always be sober.
Thoughtful, damn you. -Oleg, you shall sleep.
-I shall sleep, shan’t I? -Calm down.
-Stop it! It’s your fault, bastard.
You’re both guilty. If you had caught that freak earlier,
she would be alive now. I touched a sore spot, didn’t I?
Do you know why? Because this is true.
You’re doing nothing. -How long have you been looking for him?
-Oleg, this is it. Let me tell you about it on the way.
Get in. -How long have you been looking?
-Get in! -You’re walking with a smart look…
-This is it! Maybe there is some unpaved road there.
Maybe he is using it. Maybe. Please take him home. I’m sorry. Of course, it’s my own fault. But I thought that I didn’t love her. Even worse. She irritated me no end. I didn’t want to come home,
I couldn’t look at her. Everything irritated me –
how she was making up for hours, or how she was making faces
when she was worried… I’d give anything now to come home and to look at her. I don’t know how to live and why. I want to tell her that I loved her. But she won’t hear. And I also want to tear the head
of the bastard who had done it, off. Shall we complete for a prize? Taxi is coming. What a nice boy. Hi, I am Tamara. I am Anton. I’m your dad’s colleague. I may tell you lots of interesting things. About how honest and kind he is. Masha, go without me, I will come later. What? We agreed to go together. I need to talk to my colleague. -Is everything all right?
-Yes. -Don’t buy chocolates.
-I remember. Are you out of your mind?
Why are you interfering into my life? You don’t pay, so I interfere. -It’s easy.
-I’m not a bank. Listen. Pay me 3 mln rubles, and I will leave you alone
for three years. It’s less than 100,000 per month. -Are you crazy?
-Why? Do you think I keep it in a bedside table? Just don’t tell me
that this is huge money for you. This is huge money for me. But you will get three years
of calm life in return. No. You promised to leave me alone before. I am paying 100,000 per month.
This is enough. Enough for what? For me to forget
that you had ruined my daughter’s life? That you are a murderer? -Listen…
-Don’t touch me, or I’ll shout! Doggy, stop! Stop! Maybe you shall come, after all?
We’re bored without you. No, I’m waiting for you at home. Who is that lady who stopped you? What does she need from you? Katya, is that you?
Katya, don’t you recognize me? OK. I’ll wait for your call.
You’re mistaken. Why did she call you “Katya”?
You’re Masha. I have no idea who she is. She is weird. Doesn’t she know your name? Anton, I don’t know why she called me so. It happens that one person
looks like somebody else. But she is gone now. I thought you knew her. Anton, let’s go. -She is mistaken.
-I think so. Well? Shall we have something tasty? Why did you go there on your own? God, I just did. What do you mean?
Don’t you understand how it could end? Do you realize
that it could be the strangler? Unfortunately, it wasn’t him. Unfortunately. I scared a man. I had a gun. Nobody comes there in winter. It’s a quiet place, many cellars. There is a lake in 100 meters. That man comes there occasionally. I think he brews homemade wine there. Look. An unpaved road. Here are the cellars. The lake is in 100 m. The road doesn’t end here. If we go further,
we go out to a major road. -Is he driving dirt roads?
-Maybe. He consciously bypasses cameras.
He knows where they are. The road police. Or a police officer.
Or a technician servicing the cameras. It’s all so bizarre. Yes. However,
there are not so many technicians. OK. I’ll send my people there tomorrow. -Are you going home?
-No. Let’s go to a restaurant with me.
I’ll feed you. No, I will pass. I liked the man showing tricks.
And the soap bubbles. Can you blow the same bubbles? No. But you’ll teach me. Is it a deal? I didn’t like the clown, though.
He seemed sad. Maybe he had a hard day. He must have stood up from a wrong foot. Maybe. OK, honey, finish your chocolate
and don’t tell dad about it. It will be our secret. Do you get it? What is wrong with you? Are you unwell?
Why are you breathing so heavily? Anton, are you unwell? Honey?
Let’s go faster, I beg you! It’s good that you had a medicine. It contains nuts. Blended nuts.
Why didn’t you check it? I’m sorry,
I wasn’t going to give it to him at all. But he was begging so much! Why didn’t you check? I warned you that Anton
was allergic to nuts. I’m sorry, I forgot.
I just couldn’t refuse him. How could you forget such a thing?
You’re his mother! Yes, I forgot. If you remember,
I forgot for some time that I was a mother and I had a son. However, I’m trying hard to remember. Where are you going? I want to spend some time on my own. Do you have anything to drink at home? -Only wine.
-Good, it will do. -You hate dry wine.
-It’ll do today. I came to our old department
one of these days but didn’t see anybody I knew. After dad left his job, many people left. Some were promoted, like Vasilyev. Who is he now? The head of the transport police. Some left police all together.
Like Yevdokimov. Serega Yevdokimov? Yes. He is now Tairov’s head of security. An ex-criminal authority? I see. I always asked him about
why he went to serve in the police. He should become a bandit.
He listened to me. -Korityn is a politician.
-Really? Yes. The deputy
of the municipal education committee. I didn’t tell this one to become a bandit.
He became one on his own free will. I didn’t mean to. I’m very sorry. Roma? May you leave? Please. It’s so good that you came back. I apologize. It was my fault indeed. I shouldn’t have forgotten
about such an important thing. No, it’s not your fault. You didn’t know
that you were a mother for many years. You just forgot how it may be. Is everything all right now? What is wrong? You see… I loved another woman, another Masha. What is the difference? Why am I worse? She was alive. She was making scandals, wasting money, making my life unbearable. -And you…
-What about me? You’re like a robot. You’re running about me all the time.
Your dinners, your red curtains… I have already apologized
for these bloody curtains. Your endless apologies! Aren’t you ashamed? Don’t you understand
that I’m doing it all for you? Please don’t shout. I had a normal life,
a normal job, a normal apartment. -I left it all behind to come here…
-Stop shouting. And you want to throw me out
into the street like a dog just because I am bothering
you with attention! Why are you shouting? Ask your dad. I think he wants to drive me out
into the street. Stop it. Dad, I want to go to mum. OK. We’ll go to granny. I’m sorry.
I know I shouldn’t have said that. Please don’t go. We shall live separately. I don’t want you to leave. Look, you were right. We hurried. Let’s live separately for some time. You may stay here,
and I’ll stay with my mother. I won’t give my son to you! Shut up! Dad, why did she say… Auntie… joked. Don’t pay attention to her. Everything is all right, Anton. Let’s go to granny.
Everything is all right. Come in. Do come in. Dad and auntie Masha quarreled,
and dad said that we would go to you. Get undressed. Take your jacket off. I’ll feed you now. Mark, let’s talk. What are you going to do? What are you going to do? I have no idea. What about Alina? Mummy, honey, forgive me.
I know I created lots of troubles for you. But I beg you.
We can’t get what we had with Alina back. -If you really want to get Alina back…
-Mum, please, mum! -Alina?
-What do you want? -I want you to hear me out.
-Talk to me. I have just realized that
what had been between us was… …a boring life and you got tired of it.
Go on. I don’t know what happened to me. I spoilt everything. I want you to forgive me. What will it change? I shall go. Anton lives at his granny’s now. You may visit him as often as you want. Thank you. -Everybody has an alibi.
-Everybody? We have checked everybody
but nothing suspicious so far. Let’s exclude the camera technicians,
then. Yes. Only police
and road police officers are left. Or attentive drivers. They may know the positioning
of the cameras too. The fact that he is bypassing cameras
doesn’t necessarily mean that he is a police officer. He knows cameras and the locality. There are hundreds of such people. Here you go. Please… Who is she? She said she was your wife.
Is it true, Mark? She also said that the company
was founded for her money. And everything there belongs to her. She demanded to make an excursion for her. I think she was drunk
and I had to drive her away by force. Who is this woman? My ex-wife. That one? I told her to come back when you return. -Where did she go?
-To a trade center. -It looks nice.
-Yes. It does. Girls, champagne? A sacred selfie with champagne? Oh, champagne? Thank you. Nice hairstyle. For the best half of the humanity! -Thank you and goodbye.
-Glad you liked it! -How do you like it?
-It suits you. Shall we kiss? You reek of alcohol. I’m a big girl. And independent one too – since recently. I may do what I want. What’s wrong? Look, you were right.
I shouldn’t have brought you here. Stop it. I like it here now. Let me finish. I lived in an illusion.
I understand it now. I wanted to restore past
but it’s impossible. I already have a family. I’ll pay you a good upkeep. Can you be quieter? Can you push your upkeep
into your very intimate place? -What do you want?
-70%. What? Yes, 70% of all yours, no, our business that you had built
for my money. Are you out of your mind? Do you know
what the capitalization of the company is? It’s all solely due to my efforts. Your offer? 10%. And even that is too much. You must be right.
I don’t understand anything about it. That’s why my lawyer will call you,
and you will talk. I think you’ll come to terms.
Say a hello to Alina! Thanks! I am so happy Mark came to his senses. He finally left that… He is such a silly boy! He is kind, you know that. -Larisa, don’t.
-Sorry. What do you have to do with it? I understand that he is a silly boy, but he is adult enough not to ask his mum… Do you think he asked me to talk to you? Stop it. He would never. -He would never!
-Mum! This is for you. -Did you draw it yourself?
-Yes. -She looks just like me.
-Just like you. When Alina left, Anton cried so much. I barely calmed him down. Mum, I know that Anton loved Alina. Get her back. Mum! I hear it five times per day. Enough! In such complicated situations, the simplest actions
usually work the best. -Buy her some beautiful flowers…
-Mum! -Let me give you a lift.
-I came by a car. I was wrong yesterday.
It won’t happen again. I’m sorry. It was my own fault. -Peace?
-Peace. Shall we hug? OK, bye. -Hi, dad.
-Bad timing? Good timing.
I think somebody is watching me again. I think you’re nervous because of Nastya, your husband and your job. You shall take a vacation. Or a sick leave. OK, dad, bye. Alina? Alina, Alina? Help!
I want you to just focus on the spinning
pocket watch right here it accounts backwards some three to one what I reach
number one I want you to just close your eyes and as soon as you close your eyes
I want you to imagine yourself still you can hear the sound of children
playing you can hear the sound of the ocean caresses against this close you can see you can see this respected with each number accounts so was it hard to find parking in
Cambridge no actually when to fry something so what kind of
mushroom have you tried from mythology how does that taste like chicken
no no just let it out let it go right now open accounts for one two three when
I count to three you couldn’t open your eyes you look into my eyes you’ll find
that all the energy or you’re nervous damaging are leaving their body through
your eyes and just feel my eyes drawing and training all the negativity training

Vlad Ryashin, and Alexander Kushayev Directed by Sergey Komarov -Tell me, was she in great pain?
-Don’t think about it. I only found out today. I came and… Came to us. Yes. I believe you have questions to me. You had a conflict with her, didn’t you? Yes. She was jealous of my colleague. Were you unfaithful to her? No. But Yana was like that. If she came up with some idea, it was impossible to make
her change her mind. I called her but she wouldn’t answer. You texted her a threat. You see,
it was hard for me to restrain myself. I will explain. I courted her for six months
before she agreed on a date. We started a relationship…
with sex and all, only after I proposed to her. I gave her a ring.
It was all as it should be. I wasn’t even thinking
about being unfaithful to her. And she started a scandal
for no reason at all. She didn’t believe me. Can you confirm your business trip
with documents? Of course. Could she have somebody except for you? -No way.
-Are you sure? Yana was very reserved and shy. You may go.
If we need you, we’ll call you. I see. I have no plans of leaving
the town anyway. Good. You may be free. Oh, Yana! I don’t think that he is lying. I can’t understand one thing. How may one hide so much
from the closest people? I think we shall go on looking
for Shishkaryov. I studied the case regarding
the disappearance of his friend Kuznetsov. Kuznetsov had a garage. The info about examination of the garage
is missing from the case. We shall look at it. -Hello.
-Hello. -We came regarding Kuznetsov.
-Have you found him? -No. Do you know where his garage is?
-Here it is. Did anybody open Kuznetsov’s garage
since he had gone missing? No, nobody. Come on, come on… Stop. Go inside. -Are there lights here?
-The switch is there. Here we go! Here, here… Did you see anything? -Did you see this?
-What is that? -What was Kuznetsov doing?
-Nothing. He did odd jobs. Drove a taxi. He kept his car here.
He didn’t have days off. How may one keep so much money
in a garage?! -No days-off, did you say?
-Yeah. -Let’s go on looking.
-Work on. -Guys, what smells?
-What is it? -It stinks so much…
-Well, well. The doors are closing. The next stop
is the Academician Tupolev’s street. The train will arrive to platform no. 5. The train will arrive to platform no. 5. Comrade, stop! Hold him! Stop! Stop! Hold him! Hold him! Hands. Get him into the car. Open the door. Get in. Are you ready? Start! So. Our first report is dedicated
to a new set. Look. This is a new cool ship. Well? Shall we open it? Everything is usual for now. Here we go. An instruction.
We do need it. Hi, mum! This is it, stop, stop, stop!
Stop, stop, stop! We’re recording the first episode
for my blog. -Did you come up with an idea yourself?
-Yes. It will be a bomb!
It’s about constructors and computer games. We will have a blog for men. Great. Thanks for picking Anton up. -Where have you been?
-On a walk. -Are you all right?
-Yes. Why? You seem sad. You’re mistaken. Finish for today. Mum, just a bit more. Finish.
You have to wake up early tomorrow. She is right. You have to wake up early tomorrow.
And me too. CAR RENT What a good day for sincere confession
of a murder, don’t you think? What murder? Of your friend Dmitry Kuznetsov. What? Was Dima killed? He was. His body was found in the garage. With a large amount of money. Your fingerprints are everywhere. Right, I was in his garage many times. So what? May one get in prison
for holding a screw key? Or did I miss something? Comrade… what is your rank? -Major.
-Just a major? Just a major. Comrade Major, I don’t understand
what you’re talking about. Yes, I was in the garage. Dima and I were friends
until we went our separate ways. I don’t know who killed him and why. OK. Let’s talk in a different way.
Do you recognize me? We met four years ago.
Regarding a case of one missing girl. Yes, I remember, the police did come.
The girl was beautiful. Yes. I see. You were there too. Do you want to make me responsible
for those dead ladies? Egor Vasilyevitch,
after the disappearance of that girl… Yes? Our criminal fell silent. It coincided with the time
when you were imprisoned. After you were released,
the murders of the women resumed. What is it? A coincidence? It’s possible. But my position doesn’t stipulate trust. My bosses like the version
about your guilt. Bosses are tough people. They are not sensitive. All they want is to close a case
and get a new rank. So please help me to sort out
what you’re guilty of and what you’re not. OK. I killed Dima. When I was fired from the car park, I went to work as a plumber
in a house management company. I came to one rich apartment. While I was repairing the toilet, I kept thinking
that it was so easy to rob it. It wasn’t comfortable to do it on my own,
though. So, I engaged Dima. It all went well,
and we decided to do it on regular basis. I was choosing apartments,
we were robbing them together, and bringing the loot
to his garage at nights. After that,
he was selling the loot via his channels. He was taking a bigger share.
I didn’t like it. I argued with him. In the garage.
I don’t know what came over me. I didn’t even realize what had happened. Why didn’t you take the money? I didn’t find it. I hid the body. I looked for it, but I didn’t find it. I didn’t touch those women. I couldn’t have. I’m not a pervert. I’d die myself for such ladies. Yes. I got it.
You’ll be a journalist. Right? No, granny, why a journalist? I’ll record my blog, talk about computer games
and my constructor. I will think about something else too. Good. But you still need
to record your reports. You need a cameraman for that,
and a camera too. Granny, what cameraman? What camera? A phone is more than enough. You’re such a retrograde! I shall work on you… I don’t know anything about gadgets. It’s a deal. Let’s have a lesson of computer science
every Wednesday. And I may record it and show in my blog. Oh, no.
Don’t make a laughingstock out of me! A laughingstock? You will become a star! Mum? Mum? What are you so scared of?
As if you saw a ghost. I’m sorry, Mark, I really am.
Did I hit you? I’m very sorry. I’m sorry but I hate it
when somebody kisses me in the neck. I can’t explain it,
but something churns inside me. It’s my pathology. I don’t know.
I’m sorry, it’s not your fault. Well? Are you all right? Are you all right? How is Anton? Fine. He went to school,
visited his granny and is sleeping. -Thank you.
-What for? For not forgetting my mum. Mark? How was your day? As usual. Meetings, discussions. Then, we went to the production. We were setting up a new line. -I’m extremely tired.
-Enough! Enough of talking about your work! You asked for it yourself. Hi, how are you? I’m fine. Look, you were asking
whether I remember anything. -I do have one recollection.
-Tell me about it. I remember a child.
A boy of three or four. But not very clearly. I think it’s some nonsense, of course. I don’t have children. But you asked me, so I told you.
Mark? Mark, can you hear me? Goodbye. Hi. Hi. Why are you taking a taxi?
Where is your car? -It’s being repaired.
-What is wrong with it? Nothing. Just a technical examination. We have done it only recently. Nastya, what do you want?
Do you know anything about cars? I wanted to examine it again.
Is the interrogation over? Why are you talking to me like this? Why are you so stupid?
You ask a thousand of questions! Are you going or no? No. He was lying me in the eyes. He said he went to the production
to set up a new line. But she is not his wife. I don’t know. She looks exactly like her. No, this is nonsense.
Where was she all those four years? It’s just a woman from the fueling station
who closely resembles his first wife. -What do I do?
-Relax. I shall go there and talk to her. This is not what I meant. I tried to control everything, I used to ask Oleg a million of questions, I was bothering him trying
to sort things out. I sorted us. He is now separate from me. Is it that bad? Yes, Alina. We’re absolute strangers. I can feel that it will only get worse. You’re right.
We shall relax not to go crazy. Let it all go as it is going. Good afternoon. 130 rubles. Your 150. And 20 of change. Thank you. Number two is ready… Number four is ready. -Here you go.
-Thank you. -Sveta, I will go out for five minutes.
-OK. Alina? He was looking at me like at a ghost too. Do we look so much alike? Why did you come? Will you ask me
to leave your husband alone? I am not touching him.
He is coming here on his own. He is a big boy. I’ll give you money. -How much?
-A million. Look, don’t do it again. Hi. Did you bring a hair? Give it to me. I’ve been thinking…
let’s not make any tests. Cool. All right. Good that you came to this conclusion
on your own. This is all nonsense. She just looks like your Masha.
That is all. Simply forget about it. No. You got me wrong. I’m sure that she is Masha. This is why no tests are needed. Wait. What are you going to do now? I still don’t know. First, I shall talk to Nadya. WILL BE HOME LATE. MARK -Hi.
-Hi. -I need to talk to you.
-Good. Me too. What is it? Your wife came. She gave me a million. She wants me to stop dating you. I didn’t refuse. This is good money. I’ll sort it out. Look, your name is not Nadya. Your name is Masha. Masha Vorontsova. You don’t just look like my wife. You’re my wife. She went missing some years ago.
She disappeared. We thought that she fell a victim
of a maniac. But you just lost memory. What did you smoke? Look. These are her photos. Strangers can’t look so alike.
This is you. Just the haircut is different. Plus, she had a tattoo on her collarbone –
a little flower. And she hated it
when I kissed her on the neck. We have a son. He is eight years old now. When you went missing, he was about four. This is some nonsense. Lesha told me that we married
ten years ago, and… Our Lesha was lying. I don’t know why. I know what I’m saying. We will live together. As before. I will try to believe it. I was trying to protect my family. I understand that one may go crazy and that she looks so much
like Masha but this is impossible. Nadya is Masha. I don’t want to hurt you,
but there are so many evidence, that it can’t be a coincidence. I’m sorry, I didn’t want to cheat on you. But I couldn’t do otherwise.
Please understand. Don’t you expect too much of me? Shall I simply understand it all? Because I’m smart and strong, yes? Do you want to erase everything
that happened between us during these four years?
Just forget about it? I understand your feelings. But I shall do what is right. I see. Anton will stay with me. He is my son. You shall calm down. Yes. He sees her in his nightmares.
Did you forget? Do you want his nightmare
to become a reality? Did you think about
what will happen to the child? Are you arguing? No, honey, everything is fine. Tomorrow, when we’re out,
you’ll pack your things and leave. Let’s go upstairs. Anton is my son.
Do you understand? He is mine. Neither Mark’s nor that woman’s.
He is mine. We think in the same way,
we look at the world in the same way. He is scared of her.
She sees her in his nightmares. Don’t worry so much.
We’ll get your Anton back. -Really?
-Of course. Go to the secretary. He will draw up an agreement,
and we’ll start acting. Your son will stay with you. Don’t worry. We have a huge experience in such cases. Thanks. Alina Borisovna? I wanted to tell you that you shall come
to terms with your husband. I don’t get it. Why? If the boy’s mother is alive,
your chances of keeping him are zero. But the lawyer just said… It’s his job.
Complains, appellation, requests. He’ll do it forever.
And you’ll be paying for it. You shall come to terms. The court won’t take your side.
I am sorry. Thanks. CAR RENT USED CARS Hello. Here you go. -Here, count.
-It’s fine. Mum, why are you leaving so early today?
Are we going to granny? No, we aren’t going to granny,
we’re going on a vacation. Wow! What car is it? It’s so small! This is our new car. Get in.
It’s made for adventures. -Where shall we go?
-Do you want to go to the sea? Will dad go with us? Dad won’t go.
You know that he has a lot of work. He will come later. Fasten, please. Mark, we’re all ready.
We’re waiting for you. Yes, I’m coming. ALINA MARK Mum, dad is calling. I can’t get distracted now.
We’ll talk with dad later. May I talk to dad? Please. Yes. Hold it. -It fell on the floor.
-What? It fell on the floor. As for the realization. What is the situation
with the neighboring regions? Friends, this is not a joke. If we don’t widen our distribution network,
we’ll die. We have the Tver, Vladimir, Ivanov, and Kostroma regions close by. They are a huge market. Do you understand? Arseniy is right. We sell in Pereslavl.
And in Rostov. And in Uglich. What prevents us from selling elsewhere? Is everybody so busy
that they can’t go to Rybinsk? Let me go. No problem! Yes? I’m on my way. Where did it happen? I’m on my way. -What is your name?
-Anton. Look here, Anton. Does something hurt? -No.
-How are you feeling? Fine. Anton, my boy! How are you? -Fine. No damage at all.
-My honey! -Is he all right?
-He is. He just got scared. How are you? How are you? Fine. Wait. What car is it? Were you driving it? A suitcase… Did you plan to escape with Anton? Are you out of your mind? OK. I’m taking Anton away.
He’ll live with his granny for now. I’ll come to pack my things tonight. I won’t give him to you. Stop it. Stop it, I told you! He is my son. Do you get it? He is mine. Please understand. I can’t do otherwise. I’m sorry. Anton, we’re leaving. Come to me. -What about mum?
-Mum can’t go with us right now. Sign the protocol, please. I think I did something in a wrong way. Why? Because he simply stood up and left. He didn’t simply stand up and leave.
He didn’t. If that Nadya looks like this ex-wife
so much… Yes, she does look very much like her. One may go mad because of that. Do you think that I shall understand
everything too? Because I am smart and strong? Right? I’ll now say a silly thing
but don’t get offended. Life doesn’t stop. Sometimes, even a stupid banality
may add to your strength. I’ve just talked to my colleague. I loved my work
and couldn’t imagine my life without it. But he is now serving,
while I’m sitting in my wheelchair. I am sorry. Sorry.
You feel worse than I do. I don’t know who feels worse.
I just want you to begin… I mean to go on living.
Under the present circumstances. Why are we drinking tea?
Let’s have something stronger. Are you serious? -It’s not bad, right?
-Yeah. Look, an idea came to my mind. Talk to me. You’ll say I am crazy. I’m listening. -Promise not to get mad.
-Well? -You promise.
-Talk to me, at last! I was thinking. If you’re not a housewife anymore, maybe you shall come back to the police
instead of feeling sorry for yourself? -Are you out of your mind?
-I told you, you got mad. Dad, who needs me in the police now? I’ve forgotten everything.
I lost my skills. You’re wrong. Let’s drink it. Well? Are you feeling better now? Distract. Forget about everything. Tell me a psychological portrait
of the strangler. This is some nonsense. I knew you would get mad. But you need to get distracted.
It’s an order. I think he is very clever. His IQ is no less than 130. A man of huge stamina. He might be charming too. I may suppose that he is handsome. His victims are married women who behave not in the best way. They are unfaithful to their husbands;
they drink and swear in the streets. Maybe he is following some super-idea. Cleaning the world from the dirt
or something like this. It’s interesting that… he brings the bodies to the water. Maybe something
in his biography connects him to water. I am almost sure that he killed
his first victim accidentally or in a state of affect. She not included into his list of victims because the handwriting and the ritual
of murder wasn’t complete at the moment. What else? We may expect the next victim pretty soon. When the strangler is out of the remission, he kills a couple of victims in the course of a short period of time. Murders are followed by a remission
and a pause. Will it do? It will. -Hello.
-Hello, Alina. I will be waiting for you tomorrow
at 9 a.m. You’ll work
in the investigation committee. -See you tomorrow.
-Bye. Please meet your new boss, Colonel Mitrofanov Vladimir Nikolayevitch. Did you call him long ago? Don’t worry.
He didn’t hear your whining. Excuse me.
How may I find Colonel Mitrofanov? Hi. The coffee is ready.
Star Media Vladimir Nikolayevich, why does he leave the bodies
by the waterholes? He kills them in other places
and then brings to water. Do you hear me or not? I told you,
I don’t want to discuss this case on air. Why? Too many gossips about a maniac who is killing women are spreading
about the town. Married women. Let’s change the topic. Vladimir Nikolayevitch,
to calm people down, we need to give them truthful information. I have already shared
what I wanted to share about this case. This is all. We will either change topic
or I will leave. I got you. Let me remind our audience that we were talking to the head
of the investigation committee of the Ozersk District
Colonel Mitrofanov Vladimir Nicolayevitch. Switch it off. We will get back to you
after a news report… Look at the road, maniac! Why didn’t we fuel the car in the city? Don’t worry. We have enough to reach
the fueling station. -We do, don’t we?
-Yes. What if we don’t?
Will we push the car then? -Masha!
-Yes? I have everything under control. You do, don’t you? Not really now. Wait, wait, wait. Well done! I still don’t understand
why you couldn’t fuel in the city. The fuel was bad there. Was it bad
at the previous fueling station too? -Yes, it was.
-They all had Euro-5. It was just more expensive in the city,
right? I just can’t get it –
is the two ruble difference for a liter so principal for you? Oh, I know. I’ll be 100 or even 120 rubles
for the full tank! Masha, stop it. Don’t you think that is too much?
How can you be so petty? The money doesn’t rain
from the sky on everybody. What a bastard you are! -Sorry, I didn’t mean that.
-What did you mean? Did you want to say
that all my life I dreamt about my parents dying in a plane crash? No, I didn’t mean that. You understand well what I wanted to say.
This is enough. Calm down, please. Calm down. I’ll go and call a taxi. Yes, I want call the taxi. The Northern Road, the Fifth kilometer. Yes. The car will be here in 15 minutes. What is it? Who is this woman?
Why are you paying her bills? EKATERINA VILKOVA KIRILL SAFONOV ALEXANDER GORBATOV ANASTASIA MIKULCHINA SERGEY PUSKEPALIS GALINA POLSKIKH IGOR KHRIPUNOV YEVGENIA MALAKHOVA THE COLD SHORES The subscriber can’t be reached
at the moment. Please call back later. Masha, I can’t reach you. Masha, I will explain everything.
Do you hear? Please call me. Police -Hello.
-Good morning. -Hello.
-Hi. Hello. -Hi. Novinskiy is waiting for you.
-OK. -The boss is waiting for you.
-I’m on my way. To tell the truth…
Alina, the boss is waiting for you. He will wait. -I’ll give it back.
-One moment. I’ll come. Why is that expert always by your side? Any versions? An open attempt at courting
with the use of special methods. He is funny, isn’t he?
He invited me for a date. Really? Where to? No, you go, go. Don’t get the boss mad. You’re here, aren’t you? What has happened? Here is an order on your transfer
from the trainees to the position of an investigator.
-Thank you. Congratulations, I’m so glad for you! Thanks a lot. Get down to work at once.
Here is your first case. This is a statement and the info
from the district police officer. Vorontsova Maria Vladimirovna,
born 1987, is missing. Her inconsolable husband
is waiting in the corridor. What is wrong? Frankly speaking,
I hoped for something more serious. Something more complicated. Right, Boris Viktorovitch.
Let’s give her another case. You may all be free. Except for Novinskaya. As far as I understand,
you want to begin with robbery, right? Or a murder. Unfortunately,
you aren’t skillful enough for that yet. I believe there is a different reason. OK. The reason is,
those cases are more dangerous, and I worry for my daughter.
Are you happy? How long are you going
to keep me on a short leash? Dad, I will never become a professional
in this way. That’s why start with looking
for Maria Vorontsova, born 1987. Solve this boring case,
and it’ll be your first step. Come on, get down to work. I am Novinskaya Alina Borisovna.
I’ll be working on your case. Is there somebody more experienced here? It’s not a supermarket. Who are you? Dementyev. I’ll be working on your case. Talk to us. Three days ago, my wife and I went to visit our friends
in a sanatorium. What time was it? I don’t remember. It was around 9 a.m. Go on. We quarreled. This is enough. Calm down, please. I don’t understand who this woman
is and why you’re paying her bills! She got out of the car,
stopped a passing car and left. Did she jump out of a moving car? No. I was out of fuel. Where did it happen? On the Northern Road. Where are you going?
Get back into the car! Masha! It was not far from the fueling station. Did you remember the license plate
of the car she had stopped? No, I wasn’t thinking straight. Can somebody confirm your evidence? Did anybody see your wife getting
into the passing car? I wasn’t looking around.
There were other things on my mind. Don’t leave the town. Where may I go? My wife disappeared. We’ll keep in touch. We will need your wife’s photos and… We’ll record your statement now.
Wait here, I’ll be back in a minute. What was it? What do you mean? Why are you interfering
into my investigation? -It was Novinskiy’s order.
-I am not a child, I can manage. I told him so. But he told me to help you. You’re the chief investigator,
and I’ll be your assistant. Don’t make me laugh. Did he ask a senior investigator
to help yesterday’s trainee? Plus, do you think you really helped?
You didn’t let me say a single word. If you want to participate in this case,
I’ll be in charge. Yes, sir. Instead of mocking me,
you’d better find out whether there are any surveillance cameras
on the road where they quarreled. Yes, sir. There is one. -How do you know?
-The navigator. Damn it. He is still sitting here. -Will he sit here every day?
-It looks like this. OK, Nastya, go. I’ll manage on my own. -Are you sure?
-Yes, go, go. -Good bye.
-Bye. Maybe you shall bring a tent. It’s a good idea. Are you trying to find your wife
in this way? I am trying not to go crazy in this way. Go home. You have a small child. I can’t go home. I am scared. My close person disappeared. She neither died or fell sick,
she just disappeared. Get up. -Why?
-Get up. We shall go. I’ll give you a lift. This is it, Mother Theresa. I’ll manage on my own from here. Hi. Excuse me. May I have an americano? I think one shall only drink
from happiness. You’re right. I am behaving like a child. But I know that Masha simply
couldn’t have done it to us. She wasn’t an angel for sure
but to leave us just like this… It means something has happened to her. Can you imagine? She was getting mad… She is getting mad from kisses
in the neck. She could start a scandal just
after a tiny peck on the neck. A grandioso scandal! Love with scandals – that was about us. This is Anton. My son. Tomorrow,
I have to pick him up from my mother, but I am a tramp myself,
and my house is a mess. -Please give us a bill.
-What do you mean? You’re going home to prepare
for a meeting with your son. Or did I get you wrong? This is how we live. The kitchen is there. We have cold drinks in here. The bathroom is there.
In case you want to take a bath. This is the nursery. Come in. In case you want to play something. I don’t know what is here. She is beautiful. Is it your wife? The taxi is waiting for you. I am sorry. I didn’t mean anything bad. Come on, go, go! I hope it’s not she who has come? Dress up, fast! I’ll break my legs if I move faster. How could you make a bedroom
on the third floor? These stairs are for those
who want to commit a suicide. I am on high heels, I can’t walk so fast! God, only problems! Hello. And a good bye at once.
I really need to run now. Sorry for coming without a warning. I can’t understand what kind of man
that Mark is. The victim. The statistics say
that the majority of wives are murdered by their own husbands. It mean that you shall treat Vorontsov
not as a victim but as a suspect. I know but I don’t think it’s true
in this case. He seems to be sincerely upset. If Mark is involved
in his wife’s disappearance, and you shall have this version, and if we suppose that he could kill her, then it’s very beneficial
for him to convince the investigator that he is extremely upset about his loss. I agree. What is next? Nobody may confirm his words
that after the quarrel, the missing lady went away in another car.
Right? If you want to be a good investigator, you shan’t rely on emotions. Only on the facts. Yes, you’re right. You realized
that the camera wasn’t working. What happened next?
Did you find out who did it? How do I know?
I believe it was just a technical issue. Why didn’t you repair it at once? We don’t do the repairs.
The subcontractors do. They look after them and control it all. You have nothing to do with it, right? Yes, the subcontractors do. -You have a cool armchair.
-I beg your pardon? I said that you have a good
and comfortable armchair. Yes. Right.
We are sitting all days long, after all. I can see that. What do you mean? I can see that you’re sitting
all days long. Even your body is shaped for sitting! If you were getting your ass up
from the armchair more often, you’d be bring more use! Let me go. I just think
that everybody shall do their own job. Enough of behaving like a school girl.
Why did you jump at him? Why did I jump at him? The materials from that camera
could help us find something out. The camera wasn’t working that day. And if you didn’t start bringing him up, you’d notice a thing
that is important for us. What thing? There is a bus stop close by. Could some of the people waiting there see
what had happened? Some of the people waiting for a bus,
or a driver. Get into the car. I will do it myself. -Let me fasten you.
-Roma, I will do it on my own! OK, OK, do it yourself. We are quarreling
because of work all the time. -I am sorry. I am sorry.
-I am not offended. Let’s go to the restaurant in the evening. No, I am tired today. We still have to go to the car park
tomorrow. Let’s do it before all drivers leave.. Let’s go on Friday, then. We’ll celebrate your first investigation. It’s not finished yet. But it will be by Thursday. Okay. Do you want to have a walk? -You go there, I go there.
-Ok. Can you tell me
where I may find Shishkaryov? -Here he is.
-Thank you. I didn’t see anybody.
I’d remember a beautiful girl. If you were standing on the road,
I wouldn’t forget you. Thank you. You’re welcome. Are you in a hurry? It’s just that I finish soon. There is a bar nearby.
We could sit a bit there. Let’s go sit. Be quiet. How are you talking to the lady?
The lady is a police officer. So? Shall we go and sit, and have rest? This is not for me. You may be free. I have to leave in an hour. Wait! None of the drivers saw Masha. Why did you interfere
into the conversation again? What do you mean? He was rude to you. It’s my investigation.
Give me an opportunity to work on my own. I just care about you. This is all. Alina? Yes. We quarreled again. I am sick and tired of it.
I don’t want it. I want to drink until I forget it.
I feel good now. Yes. Yes.
You know, sometimes you get very tired of being a mother and a wife.
I’ll now find somebody… -Miss?
-What do you want? -Are you bored?
-Why do you think so? You have a bored gait. -Are you a phycologist?
-You may say so. I’ll call you later, beauty. Kiss! Come on, I’ll show you something.
Come here. Come on. -Kiss, kiss.
-What is it. The new tattoo? -Look. Look.
It’s beutifull. I like it. Wait, wait. I want to show you something. This is it. Enough. Take the phone away. Come on. Record it! -Do you know what?
-What? -Record a ringtone for me.
-What ringtone? It’s time for you to go to work.
The sleepyheads need to go to work. It’s time for you to go to work.
The sleepyheads need to go to work. It’s time for you to go to work. The sleepyheads need to go to work. We were guessing
who will be the first to kill who. He is a nervous type.
He could get fired up for no reason at all. And when he was angry… I don’t know how she could stand him. She was always the first to start.
He was trying to calm her down. But such women aren’t calmed down easily. She’s, like… Oh, Mother Theresa. You’re at work again. What a great meeting. What brought you here? What are you doing here? Do you think my wife is hiding
with my neighbors? Or do you think they killed her? Good bye. Why do you think that your wife
was killed? Can you be objective to him? I don’t like hypocrites. And I believe
that he killed his wife himself. And the neighbors said so too. The neighbors said that they used
to quarrel. That was all. If you’re ready to send
a person behind the bars just relying on such evidence –
great for you! Why do you believe him?
Why do you care for him? Where did you take him last night? To the bar. -Did you drink and talk?
-We did. Did you find out anything important? -I did.
-For example? For example,
Masha hates being kissed in the neck. She could start a grandioso scandal. The case is solved. OK. I am going to his mother.
Study the print-out of his phone calls. The print-outs are being seen to.
We will go to his mother together. -No.
-Why? Because I was taught that superstitious
attitude is our worst enemy. Therefore,
please work on the technical issues. Yes, sir. -Hello.
-Hello. I am from the police,
my name is Alina Novinskaya. I am looking for your daughter-in-law. May I ask you a couple of questions? Of course. I don’t know what to do with Mark.
How to shake him out of depression. I beg your pardon. Yes. Did she love him? It’s hard to say.
Their relations were weird. Granny, when will mum come? I don’t know what to tell him. This is Mark. Sonny! -Come to me!
-Father is coming. Hi. My handsome boy! How are you? What are you doing here? I came to talk to your mum. Anton, stay with granny, will you? Come on. What’s the fuck are you doing here? -Your son needs you.
-It’s none of your business. Did you talk to your wife in the same way? This is none of your business too. Why were you quarrelling? Look, leave my family alone.
Who gave you a right to judge? Maybe we did quarrel,
but we loved each other. -Follow me.
-Stop it. Mark. What are you doing again? You weren’t answering the calls,
so I came. What happened? I need you and your object of care. In the morning, we found a body
of a girl who looks like Maria. We need to take Mark and bring him
to the mortuary for the identification. This is not her. This is not Masha. I’m Pavel Kostyukhin,
the investigation committee. -Was it the husband?
-Yes. This is the fourth case like this. The age of the victim and the method
of the murder – strangulation – coincide. I have little data
and I hoped that you could help me. Tell me about the circumstances
of her disappearance. But if it’s not the right girl,
then I’m not in luck. Yes, the girl is not ours. Luckily. You’re Alina Novinskaya, aren’t you? -I am.
-It’s a well-known surname. Thanks. I have never understood
female police officers. They have to work with robbers
and bandits every single day. A woman shall be a woman.
Warmth, coziness. Look, I can’t beat about the bush. This is the ring, this is me. Roma, I… I don’t even know what to say. Say “yes” or… Do you like her? I like her too. She is beautiful, isn’t she? Don’t look at her,
look in the other direction. Look in the other direction! Have a nice evening. What is wrong about me? I am tired of your jealousy. I just didn’t like the way he
was looking at you. This is it. Roma, we can’t even eat together calmly. What family are you talking about? I am sorry. You will never guess where he took me!
To the planetarium! Oh! Alina, I think I fell in love. You think? You can’t think
straight for a couple of days. You’re walking smiling like a fool. I called the local cop shop today. They said neighbors called the police
on this nperfect couple a few times. -Yes.
-May I, Boris Viktorovitch? Come in, Roma, sit down. Here is a statement.
I’m leaving on my free will. Please sign it. Is it because of Alina? You proposed to her and she refused,
didn’t she? She did. Roma, let it stay between us. Alina won’t make a good wife
for a police officer. You have your job and she has hers.
What do you have to share? I’ll be glad if you stay. While she is here, I won’t stay. Let’s do it this way. My friend from Moscow is looking
for an employee with prospects. I may recommend you. And transfer you. Will that do? -Where are you going?
-There. The boss transferred me to Moscow. -Did the boss transferred you
or did you ask for it? I asked for it. Is it because of me?
-You think too much of yourself. VORONTSOVA MARIA VLADIMIROVNA ENSURED FOR MORE THAN 20 MLN RUBLES. A RICH HEIRESS. HOW IT HAPPENS -Mark, good evening.
-Good evening. -May we meet?
-Why? -Just to talk.
-Again? -Have you eaten today?
-Excuse me, what? I am very hungry.
Will you keep me company? Sausages, pasta, cutlets, and compote. Did you steal a menu from a kindergarten? Excuse me. I’ll have the Olivier salad. And fish. Have you chosen something? Yes, soup. Soup. You do need it, after a hangover. This is enough. I am sorry. Tell me about your work. What do you do? I work at the sales department
at a tin plant. How romantic! Not everybody is made for catching bandits. However, I want to have my own business. It must cost a lot. I saved some money.
It’s not enough, of course. I am thinking about getting a loan
for small business. However, to get the loan one first
has to actually start a business. I so understood
that your wife is quite wealthy. Yes, she is.
But we agreed that I’ll act independently. You’re surprising me. She did offer me the money. I refused. We had a couple of scandals because of it.
Why are you so interested? Because it looks a bit weird. Why? Look. You want to open your own business. You need money for the start.
You love your wife. You registered your company
in both of your names. However,
you refuse to take the money from her. I beg your pardon.
What are you hinting at? I don’t know. It’s just weird. Do you want to say that I would benefit
from Masha’s death? I am just trying to sort out
what happened. You think that I killed her, don’t you? A person disappeared,
and the circumstances… Go to hell! With your soup! Dad, I think you were right.
Mark did have a motive to murder his wife. Why aren’t you sleeping? They quarreled a lot.
She was treating him badly. The neighbor say that he is a hothead. Alina, may you not think about
that at least at night? The most important thing is, Masha
inherited huge money from his father. It means Mark could benefit
from her death, because he is the legal heir
and he may now open his own business. Damn it. Come to me in the morning. OK? -Is he in?
-He is. -Hi.
-Hello. Sit down. Please meet Viktor from Ryabtsevo. I got a call in the morning
that a new witness was waiting for you. I decided to talk to him myself.
And I wasn’t disappointed. Viktor told me a lot of interesting things.
May you repeat that once more? I come from the village of Ryabtsevo. Close to a place
where the girl disappeared. On the day of her disappearance,
I was waiting for a bus. I came earlier. I saw a car pulling in.
The girl got out and banged the door. She was swearing. Loudly. Then she went away,
stopped a passing car and left. I didn’t see the number. What about the first car? The one who got out from? Yes. Did it follow her? No. The guy stayed there. Maybe he was out of fuel.
Maybe something else. I wanted to help him but the bus came,
so I left. Don’t get upset. It happens. Sometimes, it feels like everything
has fallen into place. Then some Viktor comes and… Thank you, Viktor.
This information is very important. You saved a person. It’s incredible that you came today. It’s interesting. It’s good that it has been sorted out. At last, an innocent person won’t suffer. Come on, pass the ball! Dad, let’s play football. Anton, play without me, please. Come on! Boys, I want to play with you! Come on, come on! Anton, pass the ball! I want to pass too! -Mum, i want play.
-The ball! Anton, catch the ball! Anton, how are you? Thank you! FOUR YEARS LATER It’s time to wake up. Get up. Somebody needs to go to work.
While Monster Hunter has always been hugely
popular in Japan, it’s only been in recent years that this franchise has picked up traction
in the West. Monster Hunter World, the first home console
game in years, is also the very first game in the series to have a worldwide launch. The recent outings on the Nintendo 3DS made
me fell in love with the series, but does that love carry over to the bigger HD screen? The answer is a big yes. You immediately notice it with the visuals
on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. With its high fidelity, the character and
monster models are nicely detailed. Sure, Capcom knew how to do solid work on
Nintendo’s handheld, but World takes it to the next level. The hunter’s movements looks solid and the
environments you explore are vivid and full of character. Capcom created more of a breathing world,
hence why the added bit to the title is so fitting. Naturally, the biggest priority with Monster
Hunter World is gameplay. The title stays very true to the series: you
use big weapons to hunt even bigger monsters, carve parts from their bodies to make better
weapons, only to hunt even bigger beasts. There are no levels or stat points as your
gear provides all your bonuses and power. You don’t fix what isn’t broken and in
my opinion, World adds to it in ways that exceeds the previous iterations. The focus of bringing Monster Hunter to a
new, global audience is very obvious at the start of the adventure. Previous entries, like Monster Hunter Generations,
didn’t give you grand tutorial. World tells you everything need to know in
order to play the game step by step, a much needed addition for newer players who often
struggled to even grasp what the title wanted from them. A good example is how there is an action menu,
showcasing the combos that you can do. Next to this, World offers a training room,
allowing you to test the weapons in a safe environment. This way, you get time to observe combo chains
and assure that you get them. This isn’t where the learning process comes
to a swift end, mind you. Just like the last few iterations, Monster
Hunter World offers 14 different classes to choose from. Each has an unique playing style, which invites
experimentation to a grand degree. Personally, I became very fond of the dual
swords. It is a rather rapid fire weapon, which focuses
on dealing hard hitting blows. Some of the weapons in the line-up have seen
important overhauls that make them more fun. The ranged weapons, so Gun and Bow, felt always
overshadowed by the various close range options. With newly added third-person dual stick shooter
controls, you will know exactly what to put your sights on. The third big change sees an complete overhaul
to the story approach. Monster Hunter has never ever been a franchise
known for its story beats, but somehow they managed to keep it engaging here. World takes you through the “Assigned Quests”
in quick succession, introducing monsters and learning more about them. After that, you can take that knowledge to
the ‘’Optional Quests’’ and hunt for those same creatures all over. While you could keep going for the main quests,
you will find yourself hitting a brick wall pretty quick. Materials and gear are needed to push yourself
onwards, so not rushing your journey is the true viable strategy. Time is, however, no problem with Monster
Hunter World. You see, the hours with the game just flew
by without a second to spare. I started with low level monsters like the
Great Jagras to destroying behemoths like the Zorah Magdaros in an epic showdown that
included so much flair. It involved canon fire, a fortress in the
need of protection and some quick wits to stay in the game. In short, the missions in this Monster Hunter
title are some of the best found ever. The escort ones, usually a chore otherwise,
were quite cleverly planned. They served to help you learn the areas in
the game, rather than the struggle of the mission itself. Even within, you can opt to either engage
with enemies or try to pass them. It is all in pursuit of continued enjoyment. That enjoyment finds its way to the finest
details of the experience. Some will find them easy to overlook, but
veterans will have no problem pointing them out. My least favorite part of the Monster Hunter
experience, the Gathering Quests, have been removed. In its place is now a bounty system, allowing
you to perform smaller tasks in any main quests you do. Doing so nets you additional items and rewards
for the game. Another added benefit are the inclusion of
damage numbers. While these can be turned off, they will help
to understand the weak points of a monster way quicker than before. That might not seem like much, but considering
the game has a huge focus on strategy, it makes adapting on the fly something newcomers
can do. The changes continue with the crafting system,
which has always been one of the key elements within Monster Hunter. When you go to upgrade your weapon, it is
now possible to see the entire weapon tree and what the changes bring to the table. Furthermore, the game adds the ability to
reverse the changes you made. If you ever change up your mind, you go for
the option and get the materials back you used to craft said upgrade. Naturally, you will need to pay a small fee,
but it is more effective in the grand scheme of things. Armor has been souped up as well. You can now preview everything before you
craft: the stats, skills and looks. The skills are particularly important as they
are now given outright and stack once you use gear with the same ability. Next to making the abilities easier to obtain,
World stops the separation between various types of armor. You can now use whatever you like with the
14 weapon classes. Another separation that has come to an end
is the difference between online and offline quests. Your progression wouldn’t be shared between
the franchise’s various modes, but World has gotten wiser. All the quests in the game can be completed
alone or with friends, single-player or drop in and out multiplayer, with strangers or
your best of friends. This goes so far as allowing players to join
you even during the hunt, making the journey of Monster Hunter World a truly seamless endeavor. As I said in the beginning, Monster Hunter
World is all about its gameplay moments. The fluidness of combat is fun with your attacks
having a satisfying impact. The weapons help to make every hunt feel unique,
and continue to make me play the missions over and over again. What the various playing styles and options
bring to the table is something I can truly get behind. The timing needs to be coordinated to take
down the monsters. These beasties are aggressive, vile and breathtaking
to fight and I really wouldn’t have it any other way. Exploiting their weaknesses is an incredibly
rewarding process that you should experience within the game. Even when you are playing alone, your cat
allies (the palicos) are some of the most consistent AI found in a game. That is an impressive feat on its own as previously… I would rather turn the AI off. So yes, obviously I found a lot of things
to love with Monster Hunter World. Were there things I disliked it? Well, I would consider them little annoyances
at worst. One of those things is auto-crafting. A grand idea on paper as it takes two herbs
and transforms them into potion without thinking about it. The thing is, I would have rather discovered
certain combinations myself as the process is engaging. Another thing is how the movement of the mouth
and the voice acting is not in sync with each other. Naturally, this is a side effect of how many
languages the game offers, but it threw me off a little. With the Japanese option, I didn’t have
that problem, but I had to read what was being said. I learned to coop with it as the voices themselves
are pretty solid. Monster Hunter World is my favorite in the
series, which is saying a lot. I’ve put a considerable amount of time in
the Nintendo 3DS games, so the shift in nature was a slight shock at first. Once you get over that hump, you are rewarded
with an experience that is truly inviting to the player. How the quests progress and what the game
makes you do are crucial steps forward to the future. You are more left to your own devices, and
asked to take a dive into the unknown. Capcom has found a way to strip away what
wasn’t fun, build on the things I love and treat the player with respect. For that, I can only reward Monster Hunter
World with a Love It.

[WIND BLOWING] [MUSIC PLAYING] Heimdallr… …do you really think you can stop me? That’s why I’m here.
Listen up, people. We just passed the Golden Gate. Get yourselves strapped in for a landing. Repeat… Ten minutes until lockdown, people. Captain Grant, I want my equipment out of storage. My Ark Hunters and I depart as soon as we land. Relax. Just a little turbulence. Alert! All integrity compromised. You might want to arm yourself a bit more. The locals aren’t known for their charm. No one should be allowed to hold that kind of power. Too much for one man. You will all die. Everyone will die. Stand clear, Ark Hunter. No time to ride the line,
so let’s go. [MUSIC PLAYING]
