In Bruges

2 hit men are stranded in Bruges, a tourist spot in Belgium - ordered by the boss (Ralph Fiennes) to get away for a while. Colin Farrell plays the younger nervous one, while Brendan Gleeson is the mentor. Not knowing the "apparent" purpose of their visit, bulk of the movie is the 2 conversing rather hilariously, attempting to pass time while running into some interesting characters / episodes -a Canadian, a dwarf, some prostitutes, another hit man, love and drugs. And of course the scenic beauty of Bruges. The plot is simple, but one doesn't care because its generally hilarious - drama does build up towards the end. Brilliant and bloody funny. Full-on applause for Colin Farrell for showing for what he is capable of, occasionally.
