In Bruges (2008)

Two Irish hitmen screw up a killing and are sent to Bruges (it’s in Belgium – Ray informs us) to await instructions in this hilarious, witty film. It starts off as an odd couple style film – the older Ken is interested in sight-seeing, the younger Ray is only interested in drinking and women. The dark backstory to the film is slowly revealed as their stay lengthens and the insanity increases including racist dwarfs, incompetent muggers and obese Americans. Ralph Fiennes puts in a terrific performance as a murderous but honourable gangster, and Colin Farrell is mesmerising as Ray. Well worth seeing.
