I can reach....I can fly....
152 EXT. BEAUTIFUL VALLEY DAY 152
Half hidden in the heart of the valley is the truck with the house on its back. Creepers and wild roses have grown up over the truck and some of the house. A curl of smoke rises from a makeshift chimney which has been attached to one of the walls. A small piece of ground around the truck has been cleared and made into a pretty garden with a vegetable plat. There is also a pretty cow, and some chickens. JILL appears looking like CRUSOE carrying a basket of eggs.
153 INT. HOUSE MORNING 153
SAM is in the bed, just waking up. He opens his eyes, looking calm. Off screen we hear the door opening.
JILL (off screen)
Morning. Sleep well?
SAM nods his head slightly, on the pillow.
I don't dream anymore. (he embraces her)
154 EXT. HOUSE AND GARDEN MORNING 154
A high shot. Everything in the garden is definitely lovely.The music tells us. The music swells and the camera slowly pulls back, and back. It's a happy ending. And then, in the foreground, TWO HUGE HEADS appear looking straight at the camera.
It is MR HELPMANN and JACK. They both shake their heads.
He's got away from us, Jack.
CUT to their POV.
155 INT. INFORMATION RETRIEVAL ROOM DAY 155
Sam is sitting in the IR chair. He is strapped in.
His eyes are open but miles away.
His face is wreathed in a benign and very happy smile.
I'm afraid you're right, Mr. Helpmann. He's gone.
A wide shot of the room shows us
HELPMANN and LINT turn away and leave.
SAM is left alone. He is humming..
The camera pulls back and back.
The Information Retrieval room with
SAM in it floats away into the most beautiful glorious sky ever.
SAM's humming into a full orchestra, and we hear ......
"Brazil, where hearts were entertained in June,
We stood beneath an amber moon,
And softly murmured 'Some day soon'
We kissed and clung together,
Then, tomorrow was another day.
The morning found me miles away,
With still a million things to say,
Now, when twilight beams the sky above,
Recalling thrills of our love,
There's one thing I'm certain of,
Return, I will,
To old Brazil."
