Largo Winch II (2011) Script

THREE YEARS EARLIER

I've found him, Mr. Winch.

In the heart of the Burmese jungle.

In a Karen village.

Largo has been living there for three months.


He met her when illegally crossing the Thai-Burmese border.

She took him to her village, wounded, and he never left.

Go back there.

And keep your eye on him.

What if he never came home?

Don't be absurd, Freddy.

He'll have to come out of hiding one day.

Whether he likes it or not, Largo is my heir.

THREE YEARS LATER It's been secrecy for almost 30 years, the adopted son of Nario Winch is in the spotlight today following the violent death of his father, the heir of a multinational group with almost 400 thousand employees worldwide.

Today, Largo Winch is one of the most powerful men on the planet.

But does Largo Winch have what it takes to run an empire of that size?

All I know is we know nothing about him. We can only judge on his action.

Calling Cochrane back was an excellent decision.

Dwight Cochrane is a brilliant manager with a long-standing reputation of his cool-headedness. a long-standing reputation of his cool-headedness. Oh my God! Oh my God!

Oh my God! Oh my God!

AUTONOMOUS REPUBLIC OF BASHKORTOSTAN

"GPS: Find airport."

You humiliated Nazatchov before the press!

He'll never forgive you.

Find that son-of-a-bitch Winch for me!

And the journalist bitch, too!

Why did you need to save her?

Would you rather I'd been killed?

"Find the airport!"

Forgive me, my Cyrillic is rusty!

I'll do it.

I don't want to die here!

I have a wife! Four children! A career!

I went to Harvard! I'm a practicing Presbyterian!

GPS calculating route.

Turn left.

I think you're right, Nazatchov is a bit cross.

It's your fault! You baited Nazatchov with your questions!

I was doing myjob as a journalist!

GPS re-calculating route. I have a job too, missy!

I manage a group with 392,000 employees!

Nazatchov exploits and traffics!

Either we sign with Nazatchov or we lay off...

Keep to the left.

Turn right in 600 feet.


Holy shit! Hang on tight.

Make U-turn in 300 feet. What are you doing?

Make U-turn when possible.

Yourjet is surrounded by police.

Forget the airport.


Nazatchov will never let us leave alive.

He runs the entire country!

And that's alright with you? Shut up, would you!

I know a mercenary, he'll save us.

Lazarevic. An expert in crisis situations.

Very costly but highly efficient...


Hey! Let me do my job!

I'm the one paying for your job. You do what I say.

Customer's always right.

You Bosnians are too sentimental!

Beware of clichs, they sometimes end in massacres!

Today, this young man who's appeared from out of nowhere wield considerable power.

But how will he use it, only he... can say for sure.

LAKE GENEVA, SWITZERLAND


Hello. Good day, sir.

I'm here for Mr. Jung. He's waiting for you.

Tell him to come in.

Thank you for receiving me.

At last I meet you.

Mr. Jung, it's time for your shot. Later.

Later, I said.

She's always on my back.

You'd think she was in love! Come here.

Look at this. This photo was taken here.

Handsome, weren't we?

You were my father's only friend...

His oldest, there's no doubt.

This photo dates back to October 1947.

He was fresh from Yugoslavia with his mother.

They lived here, in the attic rooms.

Your grandmother worked for my parents until she died.

My grandmother?

Nerio's mother.

Your grandmother, Largo!

I was one of the only people who knew of your existence.

Nerio often complained to me about you running away.

About your lack of gratitude towards him...

It's true, father and son relations are complex.

Nerio didn't want a son. He wanted an heir.

He left me no choice.

But the fortune he left me... I'll use it my way.

I read your letter.

Your project is fabulous.

As former Red Cross President, I can only encourage you, but... But?

The men who run this world all have humanitarian foundations.

That's nothing new.

The rich give to the poor, but only a little.

Very little.

Putting your entire fortune at the service of humanitarian causes will upset the established order. Good.

And you will create many enemies. Very many enemies.

And very powerful ones.

"A man with no enemies is no man at all."

Bosnian proverb.

Don't make light of my words.

Mr. Jung?

The needle... The needle!

I'm happy to have met you.

You'll be all right.

My wife died of cancer ten years ago.

My only son died in an accident when he'd just turned thirty.

No one needs me anymore.

I need you.


I'll meet you down. Just give me two seconds. Come in.

See you later, Steve. Brian.

Don't start.

Hong Kong was without a doubt the place to be today.

Largo Winch had a big surprise for journalists at this press conference.

I have decided to sell the W Group.

The money from this sell will be entirely re-invested in a Nario Winch Foundation.

It will be dedicated to humanitarian projects, scientific research... He's sexy.

...and any good ideas we could come up. I think he's gonna be a tough one.

So... if you've got any ideas, we're listening.

The financial world has been rocked!

Nerio Winch's heir will...

An ambitious project...

...the Nario Winch Foundation now has a president, the esteemed Alexander Jung, An ambitious project...

...the Nario Winch Foundation now has a president, the esteemed Alexander Jung, former president of the International Committee of the Red Cross.

He shows a frankly youthful enthusiasm when he speaks of the foundation and its project... when he speaks of the foundation and its project... You've given me a reason to live.

You've given me a reason to live.

The captain informs us that we've left territorial waters.

Thank you, Gauthier.

I'll open the champagne, sir! For the occasion, I've chilled a bottle of Grand Sicle 1981 , which was given to your father by Mikhail Gorbachev at the opening of the Minsk paper factory.

Of course, in this overcast weather, ros champagne might be more appropriate.

I have a Laurent Perrier 2003... Gauthier! Anything you want.

Very well, sir.

Shall we?

Have a seat.

No regrets, Largo?

This agreement is irrevocable.

Your access to W Group accounts will be frozen as soon as you sign.

Prior to the final sale, you'll be a poor man again.

It's a classic contract.

Kromberg Partners guarantees you a buyer within two months.

Moreover, the sales price is indexed on your stock value, on the day of the sale.

If the sale took place today, that would come to approximately 53 billion, Mr. Winch.

That's all?

Should your value rise, you could hope for a bit more... I jest, Mr. Beaumont.

Please initial the pages and sign.

Why are we signing the contract at sea?

It allows us to sign the agreement as if we were in the Swiss offices of Kromberg Partners.

With full Swiss tax advantages.

And a signature...

Hong Kong Marine Police, stop immediately!

I repeat, Hong Kong Marine Police, stop immediately!

Back off!

This is an act of piracy. Return to your craft.

We're going to carry out a search of the boat.

You're in international waters. We have all the required authorizations.

Go! Who're these people?

Who are you? We're with the International Criminal Court.

Deputy Prosecutor Francken wishes to question you Mr. Winch.

She could've called my office for an appointment.

Knowing her, she's in your office right now.

If you're looking for an eraser, it's in the upper left hand drawer.

A sense of humor on top of it.

Only when someone searches my office.

Pandora, that name means anything to you?

A Greek goddess. If my memory's right she possessed the box which contained all the evils of mankind.

I have another version, more contemporary.

It's about a secret bank account used to pay off a corrupt Burmese general.

I like my version better.

Mine's not a legend, unfortunately.

In southern Burma, a small minority has been oppressed for years by military junta.

The Karen People.

Three years ago, General Kyaw Min and his men destroyed the village of Kay Pu.

The villagers were massacred, raped and deported.

Few lucky ones fled into the jungle.

The general led the operation personally.

The village was located on a nickel deposit, which is why a multinational corporation pays millions of dollars to General Kyaw Min to clear the village of its inhabitants.

The money for this operation... came from the Pandora account, which I suspect your father Nario Winch of owning.

My father was no saint, but he wasn't a bastard.

You were in Burma. How long did you spend there?

Five months. That's right. You left three years ago, right after the Kay Pu massacre.

I suspect you of going there on your father's order.

I also suspect you of being an accomplice of this massacre.

The last contact I had with my father was more than three years before he died.

Someone has informed you. And your being there was a mere coincidence.

The very day I announce the creation of my foundation a prosecutor shows up and accuses me of crimes against humanity.

Do you think that's a coincidence? A conspiracy theory?

I'm coming.

So that's a door that you have no key. Is that correct?

So that's a door that you have no key. Is that correct? Open this door, Mr. Winch.

Open this door, Mr. Winch.

It's Freddy Kaplan's cabin. Only he has the key.

I told him. Must I break in?

Do what you want, only do it fast.

Oh my God!

Freddy!

Death by strangulation. It occurred at least 12 hours ago.

No wonder you wouldn't open the door.

Are you accusing me of murder as well?

Calm down, Mr. Winch!

Inform the Hong Kong Police.

I hated Freddy for many years.

Whenever I ran away, he'd find me.

Every time. He was watching over you.

He was spying on me.

Freddy knew exactly what I was doing in Burma.

He knew I'd no contact with Nerio. He'd have cleared my name.

Do you think that's why he was killed?

Many very powerful enemies...

You were so right.

I only wish l could help you.

Was Nerio capable of doing something like that?

That massacre?

No. Of course not.

He was my friend. I want to believe he wasn't.

MUONG NAM, BURMA THREE YEARS EARLIER


Kay Pu is 30 miles to the north.

They said there is nothing left after we left.

The resistance fighters brought them here.

The resistance fighters brought them here. Maluna?

Maluna?

Kadjang!

Kadjang is from here. We grew up together.

Kadjang is from here. We grew up together. Largo is my friend.

Largo is my friend.

Come on, I'll introduce you to my comrades.

Ko Sin, Som Sak, this is Maluna.


Come on!

Thank you, thank you! You are an angel.

You're welcome.

Hi!

I picked them up on the road. Was only a small potato for me.

Hot around here.

Isn't it?

Could I have something to drink before I hit the road?

Oh, thank you!

This is a Burmese Army pass signed by General Kyaw Min.

Ay!

What the hell are you doing here?

I just bring them... these people. Ay, what is your business here?

Do you know General Kyaw Min? I got nothing to do with all that.

I'm just a driver.

Some guy hired me to drive him around the region for a week.

He's the one who know the general.

Liar!

I didn't do anything. It's true! Shit!

Stop it! Stop it!

You stay out of this!

You want to help him, do you?

You stand out for him

'cos you are just like him.


He has a chance of making it.

But he will never forget.

No one will ever forget.

You can't stay here.

You want me to leave?

What about you?

I'm going to join the resistance. I want to fight.

Fight.

Kadjang will be proud of you.

Go away, Largo.

You have to leave.

Says who? Me.

I'm telling you this because I don't...

Then come with me... if you love me.

I don't love you, Largo.

I don't anything about you.

I don't know who you are, where you come from.

I don't know what you're running from, but I don't want to run with you.

I know who I am, and I know I belong here.

I don't want to see you anymore. Get out of my home!

Now!

You're god of a liar.


Did AAA send you?

Let's just say "yes".

They sure are on the ball.

We have to get going.

My name's Simon.

Simon Ovronnaz.

Largo.

So one day, I come home from work and Eleanor says: "I got a job at the French School of Bangkok."

For me, Asia meant Chinese take-outjoints.

But it didn't take me long, I decided to come.

She took the post and I found a job too.

'Cause, you know, I'm totally lost without Eleanor!

Shit, I can't see a thing.

She might not be a babe, but she's sweet.

We've been together since we were twelve years old.

She's my mother's best friend's daughter.

We're supposed to get married next year!

Thailand.

She's got everything all planned...

HONG KONG THREE YEARS LATER


I'm sorry, sir. I just can't get off of this assassination.

Freddy'd been working for your father for years.

Miss Pennywinckle, did my father ever mention a certain Pandora account to you?

Not as I recall.

But I can check my files. Yes, please.


Sir, I have nothing about that name.

Thank you.

Three years ago, these massacres took place in eastern Burma, some 20 miles from the Thai border.

The Karen people living in this area had been oppressed for years by the military junta in Burma.

It is important to know that this region's south shore is particularly rich in various nickels... I've just spoken to the judge in charge of Freddy's case. Any chances?

This investigation is not going to be an easy one.

Ever, the economic sanctions imposed by the UN limit commercial dealings with Burma.

Do we have operations in this country, yes or no?

We have no holdings in Burma.

Any projects?

Difficult to say, in any case none to have been denied.

There is no Pandora account. The accusation is based on nothing at all.

Absolutely ridiculous. What? Thank you.

Dan Khongpipat is on the line from Bangkok.

Dan is in charge of the group's interests in the region.

Hello, everyone. What news do you have there?

According to my information, Prosecutor Francken wants to organize a face-to-face meeting with Mr. Winch and an eyewitness in Thailand.

Looks like our little prosecutor has a hidden trump card.

Did you hear anything about this, John? Let me see.

Who's the witness? No idea.

Upon Francken's request, an elite Thai police unit is keeping watch on the witness day and night in a secret place.

We've received the summons to meet tomorrow at the United Nations headquarters in Bangkok.

Okay.

You are not going to comply, are you? Why not?

Well as your lawyer, I strongly advise you against it.

I want to know who this witness is.

Thai authorities are behind Francken. In Bangkok, you'll be at her mercy.

Largo, let your lawyers do their job, please.

What do we have on the prosecutor?

Well, when she started up at the finance team in the Public Prosecutor's Office in...

Florida, she landed a number of CEOs in jail.

Half that was a flash of lightning.

Her enemies say she has personal scores to settle because she comes from a wealthy East Coast industrial family.

What... what would work about her?


Hello. What is your password, please?

Pandora.

Thank you.

What type of transaction do you wish to make?

I'd like to know my balance.

One moment, please.

The credit balance of your account is 65,824,127 dollars.

Miss Pen... Miss Pennywinckle, do stop crying, and please book two tickets for me to Bangkok.

What about your private jet?

No one but you must know about this trip.

And... and the second ticket is for who?

BANGKOK AIRPORT THAILAND I'm not sure l'm the proper person for your mission.

I suffer horribly from motion sickness.

I must take these in order to survive on your yacht, sir.

Quinoa mixed with dried cassava and bamboo shoots.

It's miraculous.

It acts upon the neuron-transmitters that regulate nausea.

A dear friend in Peru whom l met when I was with the MacMullans sends it to me...

This is Dwight Cochrane, please leave your message after the beep.

This is Dwight Cochrane, please leave your message after the beep. I just saw your pal Lazarevic in Bangkok.

I just saw your pal Lazarevic in Bangkok.

I know he's efficient, but l need no protection.

You can call off your watchdog.

It certainly is hot! Humid too, no?

Welcome to Bangkok.

Customs informed us of your arrival.

I'm counting on you, Gauthier.

Of course, sir.


It's a pleasure to see you again, Mr. Winch.

The witness is on the way.

You're not very talkative today.

You haven't asked me anything.

Don't worry, I will.

Good afternoon, Miss Ang, please have a seat.

Kay Pu case, fact-finding meeting between Miss Maluna Ang and Mr. Largo Winch.

Miss Ang, do you know this man?

Yes.

Would you explain your relationship with him?

We lived together for a few months.

I only knew his first name-- Largo.

Can you repeat what you've told me about Mr. Largo Winch's involvement in the dramatic events at Kay Pu?

Mr. Winch pretended to be a tourist-- a backpacker. But in reality, he was working for his father.

He acted as a go-between for General Kyaw Min and Nerio Winch.

He told me everything after the massacre. He wanted me to leave with him.

Maluna, look at me, Maluna. I refused.

Look at me, Maluna. You are trying to intimidate the witness, Look at me, Maluna! Look at me! Mr. Winch.

Mr. Winch!

I remained silent for too long.

I owe to them, to all those who disappeared.

I owe them the truth about you and your father's gifts, the harm you did.

I must speak.

What do you want? What is that you want exactly?

You want money?

Who's paid you for your lie?

What is this fuckin' crap?

I told you, you're a goddamn liar! Don't say that!

Don't say that!

Don't say that!

Who do you really work for, Miss Francken?

I work for people like that young woman so that people like you and groups like your's can't exploit them and slaughter them for pocket change.

No.

I loved that woman. I lived with these people for months.

They are the most beautiful months of my life.

I'm incapable of doing any harm whatsoever to them.

Come on, you're being played, Miss Francken. The question is by whom.

I have the authority to hold you in custody.

I'll give you time to think it over.

It's me again, sir. I desperately need to speak to you so I've decided to leave yet another message.

As requested, I am looking for a certain Simon Ovronnaz...

I met his fiance or rather ex-fiance - who was not very cooperative.

Apparently Mr. Ovronnaz left her abruptly three years ago.

She still holds a grudge.

But rest assured, I pursued my investigation by questioning the caretaker.

The man - who incidentally had appalling bad breath - indicated the address of Mr. Orvonnaz's new lady friend...

Well, his ex-lady friend now.

Charming by the way.

From what I gather, Mr. Ovronnaz has moved south, to Ko Sukon, to live with another friend...

If you see what I mean.

Since l've had no news from you, sir, l shall travel...

Darn!

It cut off.


I'd hoped Lazarevic would organize a commando operation to free me.

I got your message.

I've had no contact with Lazarevic since the Nazatchov episode.

He flew into Bangkok on a Winch Airjet.

As it happens, half his fees which were quite steep - were paid in Winch Air flight time.

He goes where he wants, when he wants.

He's a mercenary who works for the highest bidder.

As for you, Largo, the Thai Justice Minister arranged everything.

I had nothing to do with it.

Someone informed him that you were in jail...

The Thai government wants no trouble with the W Group.

Did he convince Francken of my innocence?

Francken has no proof. She has a witness.

She had a witness.

I told you, the Thai authorities arranged everything.

Largo?

Largo! Where is she? What did you do with the girl?

Where is she? We deported her back to Burma.

Do you know what that means?

She's part of the Karen resistance. She will be executed.

We did this to help you! Cancel the order.

It's too late, Mr. Winch.

It's too late, Mr. Winch. Let's go!

I don't see... Let's go!

I don't see...

Largo! Sorry about it.

Largo!

How much did the minister get for this?

How much?

With no witnesses and no proof, there's nothing I can do.

Well, I may have some news that'll cheer you up.

My friends over at the CIA gave me something interesting.

The phones of inners network picked up a call yesterday from the W Group Building to a bank in Switzerland, in the conversation during which the word "Pandora" was overheard.

MAKILING MILITARY CAMP BURMA

Drive through!

Move it!


Hello, Mr. Cochrane. Hello.

Mr. Winch isn't here?

What powers of observation!

I hear he might have... disappeared?

Mr. Winch signed a contract with you.

Just find us a buyer.

I told you, we have a serious offer.

Perfect. Where is it?

Follow me, Mr. Cochrane.


UNITED NATlONS GENEVA, SWlTZERLAND

Vladimir Podolsky, Private Secretary.

Did you have a good trip? Thank you.

This is my assistant. Hello.

Sorry we're late. Is he here?

The Swiss are punctual, so imagine Swiss judges...

Do you know what the expression "bank secrecy" means, madam?


Leave us alone.


Put this on.

I want to dine with a real woman.

And there aren't many in this rat hole.

Put it on!

You did a good job.

Winch went to great lengths to find you.

He contacted me.


Magnificent.

Really magnificent.

Sit down.

With the money Winch will pay me to free you, I'm going to leave this jungle.

And this shitty country.

I'm going to become a new man.

I'm going to start a new life.

You could come with me.

I'll take good care of you.

I'll treat you like a princess.

Have you forgotten? You can't say no to me!

Have you forgotten already?

Send a jeep for Winch tomorrow.

As soon as he transfers the money, we kill them.

Both of them.

It's me again, sir.

I am still discreetly searching for Simon Ovronnaz but despite my efforts I'm unable to locate him.

The mission you gave me is difficult indeed.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Scoffing every conceivable danger, I have pursued my quest, traveling to the innermost regions of Thailand, which one could call picturesque.

My experience as a Scout has helped me survive in this foreign-though-not-hostile land and mix with the locals,

who sometimes even prove to be warm.

As for Simon Ovronnaz, he's no longer in Ko Sukon.

Financial difficulties, if l correctly understood his recent ex-lady friend.

Thank goodness, I have a new trail... in Bangkok.

That's all, sir, l hope you're well. I worry about you.

Where are you?

Call me as soon as...

Darn!

It cut off.


So you haven't seen her for three years?

She disappeared several weeks after you.

I thought she joined you.

No.

Then why did she leave?

I have no idea.


The general is expecting us.

He wants to see this man.

I've received the orders.

Get moving!


Want us to go up in flames?

What's going on here?

Who are they?

What are you doing here?

I've got a prisoner for you.

What's this bullshit? Answer me!

Where'd you come from?


Run for the jungle! In small groups!

Come on! Hurry up!

Maluna!

No! Maluna?

My son is in there!

Why did you think I did all that? They took my child away from me!


I'm going to tell you a story, Mr. Winch.

Three years ago, your father's group hired me to do a job.

And I did the job as agreed.

But the second payment that had been promised never came.

Your father refused to pay me.

Do you think that is honest, Mr. Winch?

I think my father should never have paid you a single dollar.

If the three of you want to leave this room alive, you're gonna have to pay me 25 million dollars.

But I've sold the group. I don't have access to the accounts anymore.

Your must have some money tucked away somewhere... for when time gets rough.

That's my account number.

25 million dollars.

Hello. Your password, please?

Pandora.

Hurry up!

Come on!

Yes, I confirm the transfer.

I will wait for the confirmation.

As soon as I have it, I'll let you go.

Don't move!

Don't be afraid. Mommy is here.

Mommy will come and get you. Don't be afraid.

Yes.

Hmn, okay.

They can leave. You stay!

Largo! Largo!

We're leaving now!

Hold on tight.


General Kyaw Min speaking.

I'll be at the rendezvous.

Your internal channel is perfect. Winch paid.

But... he got away, with the girl and the kid.

We've to take care of Winch ourselves.

That's why you leave the village?

He has your eyes.

But he has his father's smile.

How old are you?

Two and a half.

Why didn't you tell me? Tell you?

How? Where?

Your first name Largo. That all I knew.

I've raised him alone. And I'll continue to do it.

You don't need to worry.

I'm not worried.

What's your name?

His name is Noom.

Noom!

Come here.

Come on, come here.

Let's see how you steer a boat.


What if I have an arrangement.

5,000 dollars.

Look, I pay you in DVDs.

I've got 500. That include the Transformers.

Among civilized people, there is always...

Eh, eh, slow down...

There is no need to hurt your guest.

Good afternoon, Miss. Excuse me for disturbing you.

You're here for the DVDs?

Eh, no. I'm looking for a Mr. Simon Ovronnaz.

Simon, come in.

That's not gonna be okay, Mmn?

Will it be possible for me to settle the gentleman's debt?

You are indeed Simon Ovronnaz?

A little holiday will do us good.

Sir, excuse me sir, this is a private property, sir.

Do you have any rooms left?

Yes, we have one free left. The price is 3,200 US dollars a night.

May I ask how you'll be paying?

The old-fashion way.

Follow me please.


I was tied up to a rope!

Upside-down!

I was this close to dying.

Believe me, it changes a guy.

When I got back to Bangkok, my life with Eleanor was over.

I wanted to live!

Your boss saved my life!

I think l've understood.

You've told me eleven times to be exact.

Eleven times!

I'm so fucking indebted to him!

Hello? Sir?

It's you!

I'm with Simon Ovronnaz. I found him, sir!

I found him!

Is it him?

Hold on, sir!

You've waited three years, you can wait another three minutes.

Yes, sir, everything's fine.

And you, where are you?

Not next door, Gauthier.

You'll have to travel a ways.


He seems well-behaved.

Not always. It's good.

I told him about you often. You know? really?

But you don't know anything about me.

Only my first name-- Largo.

I know the color of your eyes.

The sound of your voice.

The scent of your skin.

Your teasing leader's smile.

I know that too.

And I know...

Well, I hope you didn't tell your son that...

How's the water?

Now how is the water?

Cold.


I was a pretty naughty son.

I'm hoping I'll be a better father.

It seems you were right consistently taping their phones.

Do you confirm the transfer of 25 million dollars from your Pandora account, to account No. 634 TX 49?

Yes, I confirm the transfer.

This time we've got him.


My savior! AAA at your service.

You know he saved my life?

I need to understand Nerio Winch's relation with Kyaw Min.

How can I find the guy you drove around? He should know.

That won't be easy.

He's dead.

Excuse me, do you have any pancakes?

Yes, we do. Thank you.

But I might be able to help you.

I think l know why your father didn't pay the general...

The guy hired me for a week. THREE YEARS EARLIER He had to go to Burma.

A business trip, he said.

We stayed in a military camp there for a few days.

He hung out a lot with the army general.

He said nothing to me, but l knew something was up.

Then one day, the soldiers left on a mission.

They returned with dozens of prisoners.

Women, children, wounded persons...

The soldiers had burned down their village.

Totally destroyed it.

Apparently that was their plan.

But then things went wrong...

I still have not received anything. It should have been transferred two days ago. But then things went wrong...

I still have not received anything. It should have been transferred two days ago.

It will come. Don't worry.

You are the one to be worried.

You have 4 hours.

Mr. Winch, if you don't transfer the money...

Yes, I know!

Think how big those mines will pay off.

I couldn't!

I figured your dad had greased a few palms to get the mining concession.

But what he didn't know, was that civilians would be massacred in exchange.

Hello. It's me.

I talked to Nerio Winch. He refuses to pay.

You've got to talk to him.

Go see him.

Then he said we had to escape. Fast.

Where are you going? To find the girl.

I was free to move about, so I left the camp to wait for him.

Let go of me, shit!

Let go of me!

Let... Let me go! Let go of me!

Let... Let me go!

Give me time! Give me time! No, you've already had your time.

Give me time! No. Give me time! Why're you running away from here?

Where the hell is your money? No I have it.

Where is your money? Where's the money?

Go to hell!

An hour later, l hit the road.

I picked up some wounded. You know the rest.

Your father wasn't responsible for the massacre.

What was the guy's name?

Thomas. Yeah, Thomas.

You don't remember his last name?

I never knew it.

Why would l have?


The pretty young woman staff of you?

We will meet her soon.

When I arrived in Bangkok, I'll wire you a million dollars.

No.

You don't want the money?

I don't want your money.

And why? It was your idea!

Blackmail, the girl, and you are here as planned.

Someone is going to pay me, general.

Some who doesn't like you very much.


My father is innocent.

I don't care, Largo. All that counts is you.

What's that?

When they kidnapped us two months ago, they gave me a shot, with a sort of syringe, a very big syringe.

Who kidnapped you? Kyaw Min's men?

No, they were westerners. Was a woman with them?

Yes, I think so.

It's too deep.

They put something under your skin.

Get it out!

It's a GPS tag.

Whoever put it there knows exactly where we are.

Gauthier? Meet me downstairs.


Our jobs done.

Mommy!


Mommy, where are you?

Where are you, Mommy?

Come on, let's get dressed.

I want Mommy to dress me.

We have to leave.

Mommy?

Mommy had to go.

General Kyaw Min is the man responsible for dozens of deaths of innocent civilians during the massacres at Kay Pu.

We now have unequivocable proof of the Pandora account which belongs to Mr. Winch.

I have decided therefore to charge Mr. Largo Winch in complicity with crimes against humanity.

This latest turn of events comes on the back of rumors that the Winch Group will be bought out by magnate Virgil Nazatchov.

The highly controversial businessman seems to have found the funds necessary for the operation.


You've never seen a kid?

Let's go.


I want this son of a bitch. I'll find the tapes of the security cameras.

He came in with his bodyguards. I couldn't do anything.

What the hell are you doing here?

...that Winch's decision to sell the group was made prior to his legal troubles.

Shares have fallen 27% since the charge against Winch, and it's just the beginning.

Seems Nazatchov is making a fabulous deal beyond anyone's expectations.

I've paid the 5 billion dollar down payment.

The final sale takes place Monday at noon in the Geneva office of Kronberg Partners.

We'll need to re-decorate.

My name is Nazatchov.


Where's Mommy?

Mommy isn't coming back, Noom.

Mommy is dead.

She's gone forever.

But she's watching over you.

And she'll always love you.


What'll you do now?

You can't let that scoundrel Nazatchov win.

That swine!

That son-of-a...

I beg your pardon. I don't care about Nazatchov.

Hang on, isn't it his fault the kid's mother died?

You can't leave your group in his hands.

Think of what he'd do with such power.

You have a responsibility.

He won, Gauthier.

I signed a sales agreement, he paid. There's no turning back.

Do you know the legend of Pandora?

Zeus gave Epimetheus a gift: Pandora, the first woman on Earth.

She possessed a box, which Zeus forbade her to open, but one day, her curiosity got the best of her.

And she opened the lid.

The evils of humanity escaped and flooded the Earth: old age, disease, deceit and insanity...

Terrified, Pandora quickly shut the box.

Fortunately... for it was not entirely empty.

One precious little thing remained at the bottom of the box:

Hope.

And from that day onward, though Man might be stricken by great misfortune, deep inside, there always remains a glimmer of hope.

You cannot lose hope, sir.

Not as long as you're alive.

What is your password? Pandora.

I would like to make a 7-dollar transfer.

Seven dollars? Four plus three?

That's correct.

What is the destination account?

Mr. Winch, I have the information your requested. What is the destination account?

Mr. Winch, I have the information your requested.

A Winch Air jet is standing by at the Bangkok Airport.

The crew have rooms at the airport hotel.

Your miracle works as usual. I love you.

Me... Goodbye, Mr. Winch.

Yes, Winch?

I'm leaving for Geneva, I'll be there for the sale.

Winch! Winch! I'm leaving for Geneva, I'll be there for the sale.

Winch! Winch!

Yes. Nazatchov.

I got something. Me too. Winch is on his way to Geneva.

You fucked up. Considering the money I'm paying you I'm counting on you to solve the problem as soon as possible.

So, Dwight? I hope you've put your sweater on.

It can get quite chilly in Switzerland too long.

So what exactly is your plan?

Yes?

You have the sign?


What do you mean you "didn't finish pilot training"?

My teacher died suddenly.

An accident?

Murder.

Strangled by that guy there.

Welcome aboard Winch Air, gentlemen.

Anything I can do?

Yes.

Stop fidgeting.

You have to eat.

You're not hungry?


Shit, they're scary even when they're asleep.

Shit, you scare me too.

I hope you don't have stock in the Winch Company.

Not yet. But I was planning on getting some not out of my price range.

We found the guy who received the 7-dollar transfer from Winch.

Not my type. Dragan Lazarevic, former member of the Serb special forces during the Balkan war, after the war went into private security, quite successfully judging from his reputation.

Nice credentials.

I wanna know everything he's done in the last month.

I don't know about the last month, but as we speak he's on his way to Geneva.

He'll be landing in one hour.

Yes?

Speaking.

Thank you.

The pilots were found in their hotel room.

Tied up.

Geneva tower, Winch Air Quebec Zulu.

Radar guidance on Runway 3G.

We're beginning our descent.

If you only knew how happy this makes me.

Nazatchov has transferred more than 800,000 dollars to Dragan Lazarevic over the past three months.

Looks like Lazarevic is working for Nazatchov.

But why did Winch send the guy 7 dollars?

To get our attention.

I'll kill you, you son-of-a-bitch!

Take over the controls.

Stop it!

They just made all men dead.

Not in the airplane. Very dangerous.

Let's see.


Simon!

Hang on tight!


You alright?

No problem.

Where are you?

Yes, of course.

I'll send my driver.

Where exactly are you?

Hello. Passports, please.

You always travel armed like this?

Those are all his men, alright? But Dragan Lazarevic is not here.

I'll accompany the police for questioning. Keep me posted.

The nurse will be right down.

Alexandre Jung. Welcome.

Simon Ovronnaz.

Mr. Winch refused to come with us. He wanted to see the prosecutor.

And you let him?

That's insane!

You don't realize, the woman is dangerous.

Hello. You work at night.

Winch. I hope it's all on my account.

I know you're in Geneva.

My Lord.

The 7-dollar bank transfer to Lazarevic is very clever.

Clever? I was expecting your attention for detail. But I'm wrong.

In any case, you are right about one thing.

You got a lot of enemies.

In our country there is a saying that goes

"A man with no enemy is no man at all."

How's that coffee?

I have something important to ask you. Will you see me?

Third floor. Ring the bell.

Get in!

I was worried.

No need. I'll explain everything to Francken.

Nazatchov is a fool. How could he mastermind such a scheme?

Even fools have strokes of genius.

Perhaps.

But how did he know what happened in Burma three years ago?

He had an informer, someone inside the group.

I'll come with you.

You're an angel. My leg barely hurts anymore.

One last drop?

Thanks.

What if Nazatchov were simply the financier of the operation?

What if someone else were hiding behind him?

To dream up a plot like that, you need motivation that goes beyond the lure of gain.

You need a raging desire to humiliate, to utterly destroy and bring down a reputation, a name, an empire...

Money alone cannot be the driving force.

This was... vengeance.

Hatred.

My son was a lobbyist for Nerio.

Thomas...

Thomas Jung.

He used my personal contacts to help the W Group win new markets and concessions.

Nerio never balked at paying bribes.

That's what "Pandora" was for.

Each time he won a contract, Nerio paid my son Thomas a commission.

But all that money went to his head.

He wanted more and more.

When I saw you for the first time, so young, so handsome and rich, so completely alive...

I was approaching death, but you gave me a reason to live...

Vengeance!

Nazatchov is an idiot.

He merely obeys and pays.

Tonight, you shall kill Prosecutor Francken.

The only person who can prove your innocence.

Give him another shot.

There are more vials in the car.

Do what I tell you!


Sugar...

Here.

Call the police, fast!


Alexandre!

Don't do it! I did the same!

I begged Nerio to save my son.

All he had to do was pay.

I swear to you, Largo, I begged him on my knees.

My oldest friend! My brother!

On my knees!

Stop! Don't come any closer!

Your son had become a piece of shit and you know it.

He ordered the massacre in Burma.

He was my child!


Still have to arrest me?

I'd rather invite you for dinner.

My treat. I heard you have tapped out.

Maybe not.

Depend upon you.

In light of these circumstances, there could be no doubt that Mr. Largo Winch is innocent.

I immediately withdraw all charges against him for complicity in crimes against humanity.

Within minutes the W Group shares soared back up to their previous levels.

As a direct impact, rumor has it that Virgil Nazatchov will no longer be able to buy out the Winch Group.

Today Nazatchov was a ruined man, in addition, no doubt proceedings will soon be brought against him.

Forgive me for shedding no tears.

But Mr. Cochrane, what would become of the 5-billion-dollar deposit that Nazatchov has paid.

Largo Winch has decided to turn this money over in full to his foundation.

That like is there any need to sell the group?

You have to ask Largo Winch.

Well, do you know where Largo Winch is right now?

He is right where he is about to be, trust him.

Are the chicks pretty in Hong Kong?

I beg your pardon?

The girls...

Hong Kong...

Largo invited me to spend some time there.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Want some Phat Thai?

You and I are gonna make a great team.

What do you say, pal? I'm not your pal!

You will be soon.

Ready to go?

No.

We'll come back whenever you like.

I live on a big boat, you know.

No, I don't know.

It's surrounded by tall houses that touch the sky.

And my office is at the very top of the tallest house.

Are you all alone up there?

Not anymore.
