White Script - Dialogue Transcript

Voila! Finally, the White script is here for all you quotes spouting fans of the Krzysztof Kieslowski Three Colors movie with Julie Delpy.  This script is a transcript that was painstakingly transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of White. I know, I know, I still need to get the cast names in there and I'll be eternally tweaking it, so if you have any corrections, feel free to drop me a line. You won't hurt my feelings. Honest.

Swing on back to Drew's Script-O-Rama afterwards for more free movie scripts!

White Script





I have paper... a summons.



That way, sir.



Can you tell us your concrete

reasons for wanting a divorce?






Yes, concrete.



Our marriage wasn't consummated.



Is your wife's testimony

faithful to the facts?



In a matter of speaking.



But when we met in Poland,



and even here, at the beginning,

I think I gave my wife pleasure.



It's only afterwards...



We haven't made love

since we're married.



We stopped... I stopped being

able to. It's just temporary.



Where's the equality?



Is my not speaking French

a reason for the court to refuse



to hear my case?



What is it



that you want?



I need time, Your Honor.



I want to save our marriage.



I don't believe

the love is gone.



One night I was ready to



Was the marriage consummated

that night?









Do you love your husband?



I used to.



and now?






I don't love him anymore.



My god.



That's all.
















Your account is frozen.






Yes, your card cannot be used.



It's invalidated. Canceled.



My card.



I can't give it to you.



My money.






No, No.









Excuse me.



Come to Poland with me.



I'll never go with you.



I'll win



every trial.



the divorce,

property settlement...



You never understood a thing.



I understand.






If I say I love you,

you don't understand



And if I say I hate you,

you still dont understand.



You don't understand

that I want you,



that I need you.



Do you understand?



Do you understand?






And now I scare you?



Do I scare you?



I don't know.



You don't know...



Watch this, now.



Take a good look.



You were out for revenge.



You set the place on fire.



Soon every cop in Paris

will be after you.



The keys.



Your fly is open.



I am sorry.



How could you tell

I am polish?



I know that song.



How about this one?



I don't like it.



Do you live off that comb?



I try.

Times are tough.



What's that?









Not a bad job.



I've won competitions.



Sofia, Budapest, Warshaw.



Here too.



Where do you sleep?



In your suitcase?



Excuse me.






There's an alcove...



Can I sit with you

for a while?



Do you do card tricks?



Pick thirteen cards.



Spades:     Queen, King.



Diamonds:     Ace.



Clubs:     King.



Hearts are weak:   and  .



What counts in bridge

is memory.



And mine is excellent.



I've played bridge here

for a few years.



Now I am going home.

What about you?



I want to get out of here.



I'll take you back.



Tomorrow morning.



I think I doubt it.



I lost my passport. I have no

money. The police are after me.



I'm down on my luck.



I'll make enough to buy a fake

passport near the Polish church.



They're rip-off artists.



And not very serious.



I offered one of them a job.

He took the money and ran.



Maybe you'll like it.



A good job?



Very good, but unpleasant.



I'm hairdresser.



You have to kill someone.



He won't do it himself.



He doesn't want to go on living.



A Pole.



He'll pay well.

Enough to live on for   months.



No, no... not that.



Why can't he do it himself?



He has a wife and children

who love him.



Imagine how they would feel.



This way, someone kills him

and it's over.



He has a wife, children, money...

and wants to die?



What can I say?



My wife threw me out

with one suitcase.



And here I am.



And i still love her.



Even more than before.



After all she did,

I still love her.



Is she pretty?






I first saw her at the

Budapest competition.



I won that.



A friend was doing her hair.



She looked at me.



I'll show you.






Come on.

A bit over the hill, no?






She's going to sleep.



You think so?



It's me.



Perfect timing. listen.

Nothing else from Paris?



No why?



Can I help you?



My suitcase is missing.



Ticket, please.



Excuse me?



Your ticket, please.



The Paris flight?



What was in it?



Personal belongings.



Clothes, shirts...






To tell the truth,

my friend was in it.



We'll divide it in   equal parts:

  for me.






Handling charges.



Fuck! It's alive!



What the fuck?



Get him out!



Made in Russia! Fuck!



Stop it!

He may have a wallet.



Two francs! shit!



Give that back!



Careful he has scissors.



The asshole's broke.



Let's split.

Is that all?






What do you want?



I'd like to get

into the money business.



In my line,

it takes years to get ahead.



I'll say.



I heard about

how you got out of Paris.



You're inconspicuous.



That's good.

No, he just said to say hi.



Then he left.

I'm here on business.






No, I wanted to talk business.



Can I come in?



It must be a good piece of land.



Move in with your son!



I wanted it to.



Then do it!



Buy a car, a TV.



What for? I never watch it.



Always the same crap.



Or else...



I could bury the money or...



put it in a little jar.






That would be nice.



     dollars down.

I have to go.






It's the last train.



You're wandering around

You'll get mugged.

They'll steal your briefcase.



Sleep here.

There's a bed upstairs.



It's your bed now.









You're alive.



They stole me with the trunk.



Your brother told me.



I was looking for you.



Me too.






What's up?



In the metro,

you mentioned a guy...






Can you get in touch with him?



Yes, I can.



When someone asks for help,

you have to help him. Right?






he's back in Warsaw.



He doesn't want to anymore?



He does.



More than ever.






He changed his mind?






It's me.



Does it make a difference?






but it's you.






These days



you can buy anything.



The envelope is in my pocket.



Take it afterwards.



Go on.



Are you sure?



That was a blank.

Are you sure?



Are you sure?



Not any more.



Tell me why.

Me too.



Everything is possible.



You beat us to it.



You bought the land.

You spied.



I did.

And it's airtight.



What do you mean "airtight"?



If I die,

everything goes to the church.






To the church.



We're screwed

Let him go.



You're lucky

Let's talk.



Are you selling?



I'm selling.



He's selling.



How much?



Ten times what I paid.






Excuse me while I change.



What a low-life.



What the hell is going on?



I'll be able to pay you back.



The stove...?



Should I light the stove?






This may interest you.



I have a plot here.



Here... and here.



Right in the middle!






Here, I couldn't resist.

A beautiful spot.



With birch saplings.



Which means?



Same thing:

   times as much.



I have everything:

bills, contracts...



That's the way it is.



For the time being.



It's a deal.

you're my partner.



I'd like you



to run it with me.

It looks like good work.



How thick should that wall be?






Measure it.






Have those   centimeters added.



But we'd have to knock it down.



I guess so...













It's Karol.

I'm calling from Warsaw.



From Poland.



I'm sorry.

I wanted to hear your voice.



Say something.






"I hereby annul

my previous will and testament.

at the end.



I know how to spell Dominique.



What are you doing out here?



I'm afraid

the office may be bugged.



By whom?



Who knows?

I wanted to tell you something.



Go ahead.



Don't be surprised to see

Everything is in order.



You know what's next?






We need someone to bury.

Let's go.



It couldn't be better, boss.



He's impossible to identify.



What happened?



His head got crushed.



He leaned too far.

Let's close it.



I'll manage.



Okay. Goodnight boss.



I'll close up.



You scared me.

Are you sure?



Don't be late for the plane.



At    o'clock

I'll call the police.



They'll be there

half an hour later.



At   :   you'll be in the air.



-Easy isn't it?







So long.



I wanted you to come.



I wanted to be sure.



I didn't want to have

to ask anymore.






You cried at my funeral.






Because you were dead.



Can I touch your hand?



Sit down.



Can I lay my hand here?

Boy, did we identify you!



Mikolaj puked.



Good thing you didn't
