Story of two hitmen in the city of Bruges on a mission - In Bruges

Lost and Found

British filmmaker Martin McDonagh earned global recognition for the 2017 filmThree Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which earned seven Academy Award nominations and two wins. But his relatively lesser-known 2008 film, In Bruges, is our Lost and Found for today.

Set in the city of Bruges in Belgium, a city renowned for its medieval architecture and art, the story follows two hitmen sent from England to carry out a mission. Colin Ferrel essays the role of Ray, a relative newcomer to the profession, who is deeply haunted by the traumatic events of his first mission when he accidentally murdered a little boy. Brendan Gleeson plays the role of the veteran hitman, Ken, who attempts to help ease Ray’s trauma.

However, they soon realise that their boss Harry had asked for this mission simply to give Ray a proper vacation before killing him. Harry, essayed by Ralph Feinnes, despite being a hardened criminal, is a man of principle and believes that Ray should be punished for his mistake.

The film’s visuals, sound design, engaging screenplay, and riveting performances, makes it one of the best black-comedy drama films of the 21st century. It explores themes of morality, trauma, and redemption through visual imagery, editing, and narrative structure. It opens a discourse on the social construct of morality and how it is perceived by an individual regardless of established conventions.

The film remains one of director McDonagh’s best works, if not his best. It is available on Amazon Prime Video.

Well that's the OTTplay Lost and Found film for today, until the next time it's your host Nikhil signing out.
