Movie transcript with snapshot pictures 4
To work hard at the office, you need a family at home.
More irony for you. Good night.
KIRO HONJO: These tight-fisted Germans aren't letting us see any of Dr. Junker's work.
JIRO HORIKOSHI: I don't see any oxen.
KIRO HONJO: Jiro, the airstrip's right next to the plant.
JIRO HORIKOSHI: Wow, everything is so big.
It's a G-38, is this what we're buying?
KIRO HONJO: Yup, to convert to a bomber.
JIRO HORIKOSHI: Who's the Army planning to bomb with this one?
KIRO HONJO: America, probably. Not that they could. This is... something.
JIRO HORIKOSHI: It's amazing. Look, passengers sit in the wings. It'd be a shame to put bombs there.
KIRO HONJO: That's the job, pal. This is our chance to get their all-metal technology. What? They're not letting us in?
JIRO HORIKOSHI: Beautiful.
GERMAN SOLDIER GUARD: You're not authorized to be here. You must go back immediately.
KIRO HONJO: Take your hands off him. You've been slamming doors in our faces all day.
GERMAN SOLDIER GUARD: You Japanese copy everything. All
this technology belongs
JIRO HORIKOSHI: Honjo,
maybe we don't need their technology after all.
Wood and canvas could be just as good as metal.
KIRO HONJO: Jiro, we can not be stuck in the past forever. We're already 20 years behind! Let's get some air. My brain is going to explode! It's as if we're a hare, chasing a tortoise with a twenty-year lead. But in our little story, the hare doesn't sleep. We can close the gap, but how can we beat it?
JIRO HORIKOSHI: We're too far behind, we'll always be chasing it.
KIRO HONJO: But what other choice do we have? Keep running and catch up some day?
JIRO HORIKOSHI: I wonder if there's a different way to run.
KIRO HONJO: What is it?
JIRO HORIKOSHI: Schubert's "Winter Journey".
KIRO HONJO: That's perfect for us. A masterpiece of misery and woe.
JIRO HORIKOSHI: What was that?
KIRO HONJO: Secret police. We saw them in the hangar.
KIRO HONJO: Jiro? Jiro! I'm done, the bath is yours. Dead to the world because he thinks
he's shouldering the future of Japanese aviation.
MAN: There's a telegram from headquarters.
KIRO HONJO: Come in.
MAN: No need. Some of us will be returning to Japan right away. You're staying here in Germany. Jiro will continue west and return to Japan.
KIRO HONJO: West?
MAN: They want him to see the world.
KIRO HONJO: Alone?
JIRO HORIKOSHI: Mr. Caproni.
Is the wind still rising?
JIRO HORIKOSHI: Yes, sir. It sure is.
it's a perfect time to embark on my final flight.
JIRO HORIKOSHI: Wait! You're retiring?
CAPRONI: It's a pretty big jump. Get on! Jump! Why are you just sitting there? Let's go! There's a hatch underneath the fuselage. Hurry up!
JIRO HORIKOSHI: Yes, sir!
CAPRONI: Let me through, girls. Over here!
These are all my workers and their families.
Practically the whole village. I thought we'd take a little jaunt before we deliver this bomber to the government. What do you think?
JIRO HORIKOSHI: Incredible. It's like a building out of ancient Rome.
CAPRONI: This plane is too big to be used for fighting but the military has a weakness for big things.
JIRO HORIKOSHI: Japan could never build anything as grand and as beautiful as this. The country is too poor and backwards.
CAPRONI: Inspiration is more important than scale. Inspiration unlocks the future. Technology, eventually catches up. That's my family. We Italians are very poor as well. Too many mouths to feed. Hey! Settle down, or the bottom will fall out! Come on. Be careful, eh. This may be a dream, but you can still lose your head. Which would you choose, a world with pyramids or without?
JIRO HORIKOSHI: What do you mean?
Humanity has always dreamt of flight,
but the dream is cursed. My aircraft are destined to become tools for slaughter and destruction.
JIRO HORIKOSHI: I know.
CAPRONI: But still, I chose a world with pyramids in it. Which world will you choose?
JIRO HORIKOSHI: I just want to create beautiful airplanes.
CAPRONI: Like that? Very graceful.
JIRO HORIKOSHI: I have a long way to go. I don't even have an engine or a cockpit yet.
CAPRONI: Bravo! A beautiful dream. This is my last design. Artists are only creative for ten years. We engineers are no different. Live your ten years well, Japanese boy.
