2/5/2022, Μακεδονία TV, 21:00, Ο Αμερικανός (The American - 2010 film)

JACK
What car did they give you?

Her HAZEL eyes flick over the crowd in front of the cafe.
She doesn't answer.
JACK clears his throat.
Then says quietly:

JACK
Range?

She takes a long time to answer. When she does, she does so over the rim of her half-empty coffee cup, scanning the crowd like a cheating wife customarily anxious not to be seen by her husband.

MATHILDE
One fifty to one seven five meters.
23.


JACK
Time?

MATHILDE
Five seconds. Seven at the most.

JACK
Targets?

MATHILDE
One.

JACK
Fire rate?

MATHILDE
Rapid.

JACK
Magazine capacity?

MATHILDE
Large. Preferably 9mm Parabellum.

The WAITER delivers the Spremuta and the raspberry ice-cream.
The glass of lemon juice twists in MATHILDE's slender fingers.

MATHILDE
The weapon must be fairly light.
And compact. Possible to be broken down into its constituent parts.

L'AMERICANO
How compact?

MATHILDE
As compact as possible.

JACK
clears his throat.

JACK
You want a submachine gun to fit in a lady's purse?

MATHILDE
A small vanity case would be permissible.

JACK
A small briefcase would be possible.

A beat.
