Stef Reviews... In Bruges

Just saw this tonight and wow, such a great dark comedic film.

Short synopsis - Colin Farrell's character has just begun a career as a hitman, and finds himself and an associate hiding out in Bruges, in Belgium. And finding every single second of it boring. And from here a brilliantly written comedic film unravels itself, culminating in one of the best endings to a film i've seen in recent times.

There are so many quotable lines in this film too, most notable are a particular conversation/fight that happens in a restaurant, and of course, the multitude of "feckin' Bruges" that are littered throughout the film. Beware; There's a tonne of swearing in this film. There's even a feature on the dvd where it just plays every single instance of swearing. 

I'd give this 9 gold stars out of 10. Definitely worth a purchase.
