Writer/director Martin McDonagh takes audiences on a killingly funny trip to Bruges (pronounced "broozh"), the most well-preserved medieval city in the whole of Belgium. For hit men Ray (Colin Farrell) and Ken (Brendan Gleeson), it could be their final destination; a difficult job has resulted in the pair being ordered by their London boss Harry (Ralph Fiennes) to go and cool their heels in the storybook Flemish city. But the longer they stay waiting for Harry's call, the more surreal their experience becomes. And when the call from Harry finally arrives, Ken and Ray's vacation becomes a life-and-death struggle of darkly comic proportions and surprisingly emotional consequences.
