Bruges. It’s in Belgium.

I’m not generally one to push films on other people, but I saw ‘In Bruges’ yesterday and it’s one of the best movies I’ve ever seen. The trailer makes it look like an over-the-top action movie but it really isn’t. It’s got a great story, good character development, amazing piano soundtrack and is also quite funny. More funny with the wordplay than any sort of slapstick though. Not for kids. It’s got violence and lots of cursing, though little to no sexual content, so therefore it’s perfect for yeshiva guys. Oh, and those of you with bleeding heart disease beware; it takes quite a few potshots at stereotypical American tourists in Europe, so if you’ll get offended at a fat American family being told they probably shouldn’t try and climb the tower, stay away. Anyway, it’s a great black comedy.

    HI there,

    I am looking forward to seeing this. I was in Bruges a couple of years ago and for that alone I’d love to see it.

    Thanks for sharing!
