In this whip-smart crime comedy, assassins Ken (Brendan Gleeson) and Ray (Colin Farrell) are  sent to the sleepy tourist town of Bruges to lay low after a hit gone awry.

While the restless Ray fails miserably at keeping a low profile, their boss Harry (Ralph Fiennes) is irate and takes steps to clean up the mess.  

In Bruges is a tour de force that effortlessly blends smart dialogue and wisecracks with hard-hitting themes and well-paced action. 

‘Farrell has brought his A-game to this cracking little comedy-noir written and directed by Martin McDonagh. He is absolutely superb: moody and funny, lethally sexy, sometimes heartbreakingly sad and vulnerable…’ – The Guardian
