In Bruges

I LOVED In Bruges. LOVED it.

It's about two hit men who need to keep on the down low after one of them accidentally kills a young boy. They are waiting in Bruges, a small tourist town in Belgium, till their boss tells them what to do.

But so much else happens. I know sound corny, but it's about friendship and redemption. It's very very witty, and even though there is quite a bit of violence, there is a lot of real warmth in the film. I don't want to spoil anything (like anyone reads this!) but it's amazing that a movie that ends quite in the way this one does can be so moving and uplifting at the same time. It's the best movie I've seen in a long, long time.
