Luna Negra

Question: When Catherine is interrogating one of the thieves at the police station, what does she say to him and in what language? The police think they are Romanian, however she asks him a couple of questions in various languages and, I think, it is German that he finally responds to. What does she say to "break him"? (00:34:10)

Luna Negra

Chosen answer: First Catherine asks him in French: 'Vous aimez les Etats-Unis?' ("Do you like the United States?") to which he doesn't reply, so she asks in German: 'Sehen Sie gerne Edward G. Robinson?' ("Do you like gangster movies...with Edward G. Robinson?") He snickers, so she continues. 'Seine Familie stammt aus Rumanien' ("His family is from Romania"). He answers: 'Ich will einen Rechtsanwalt' ("I want a lawyer") to which Catherine replies 'Aber Sie sind doch kein Staatsbarger...Da gibt's keinen Prozess...Sie werden ganz einfach deportiert...Rumaner ohne Ausweise machen uns nervos... Nervos...Die kannten Securitat sein...Deine Regierung nimmt Geheimpolizei... Was die mit dir machen... Hm?' ("But you are no U.S. Citizen...There won't be a trial...You will simply be deported...Romanians without ID cards make us nervous... Nervous...They could be Securitat [from the Romanian Secret Service]...Your government takes Secret Police... What they'll do with you... Hm?").

Answer: The thief answers in German - but with a Swiss accent.
