Two assassins are asked to lay low after an assignment, and they are sent to Bruges – a cold, dull medieval place in Belgium(?). Each has his own reasons to like or dislike the place, but they just have to wait for their boss to call them to know what next.
We get to know them as they push their life through, as they reflect on their past deeds and the movie heads to a violent climax. Introduction of morality towards the end and setting up for climax felt a little odd, but overall, brilliantly written script. In Bruges, though, is not for the faint-hearted ones.
