Synopsis

George Clooney plays an assassin who - after a botched mission in Sweden - vows the job will be his last and goes to ground in a small Italian town. To his surprise, he finds himself enjoying his enforced break, the friendship of a priest (Paolo Bonicello) and a dalliance with a pretty hooker (Violante Placido). Director Anton Corbjin's slow-burning thriller - based on a novel by Martin Booth - unspools at a stately pace with an atmosphere of dread dogging the reluctant assassin's every step. Subtle performances - particularly from Clooney - ensure the drama is bang on target.
