Being ‘In Bruges’ is rather good

Posted in Bruges, movie by Tony C on April 26, 2008

I’m not sure what I expected, the film poster seems to promise slapstick, but here is an incredibly thoughtful, dark, funny, bloody wonderfully acted piece of cinema.  Have them speak French, add some subtitles and you’d have a classic Gallic movie.  And to cap it all they avoid the typical Hollywood happy ending. 

Reviewers have compared it to Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, they always seem hell bent on comparing on movie with another, but I think that’s like comparing Heart FM with Radio 4.  Daft. 

Go see it.
