In Bruges

UK 2008

Details  imdb

Seen 19 February 2009

An assassin’s first job gone awry and Bruges is the scene where he finds his purgatory. A brilliant dialogue driven drama, replete with references to the after life and our beliefs, demands the audience to listen carefully.

Can we ever forget our mistakes? How does one end the pain of things past? Integrity and high principles do take a place even in the worst of men. Should another chance or opportunity be given to make good of past misdeeds?

The film succeeds in presenting its case at a brisk pace while allowing deeper thoughts to shine through the three main characters’ words.

Impressive effort from all involved.
