Narrator: "Nino is late. Amelie can only see two explanations. 1-he didn't get the photo. 2-before he could assemble it, a gang of bank robbers took him hostage. The cops gave chase. They got away...but he caused a crash. When he came to, he'd lost his memory. An ex-con picked him up, mistook him for a fugitive, and shipped him to Istanbul. There he met some Afghan raiders who took him to steal some Russian warheads. But their truck hit a mine in Tajikistan. He survived, took to the hills, and became a Mujaheddin. Amelie refuse to get upset for a guy who'll eat borscht all his life in a hat like a tea cozy."
Porn Shop Clerk: "These are hard times for dreamers."
"little Amelie, your bones aren't made of glass. You can take life's knocks. If you let this chance go by, eventually your heart will become as dry and brittle as my skeleton. So...Go and get him, for pete's sake!"
