Action Original Version Italian Version
The father passes by Kris, walking with his head down, with his hands in his pockets. Kris (keeps burning papers)

There's no point in keeping these papers... The ones to hold are in my room...

My research notes... my thesis... I held on to so much...

This is totally useless stuff. The things to be saved are in my own room...

University works, old magazines... I wonder why I treasured everything...

The father

If something should happen, I will find someone to take care of them...

I'll come up with something...

Your way of approaching the problems of knowledge seems too extreme to me.

Knowledge is a moral issue.
The camera frames now Kris and his father. Kris Don't look for that film, I'm taking it with me. Remember? The one of the bonfire? Men make science a moral or immoral thing, father.

The camera moves to frame the aunt who - wrapping up the face with her shawl - walks towards the house.

The framing is back on Kris and the papers on fire.
The father (going off the frame) Yes, of course.

I know, I know...

(off-screen) But we aren't so all-powerful people, Kris. Sometimes we aren't able to know what is ethical and what isn't. Some people say we need to bomb the Solaris ocean, for example. But the Solaris ocean is a living organism, a thinking brain: you discovered this. Is it right trying to kill it, even though it doesn't have human attributes?
