The American (2010)

George Clooney plays a professional hit man who has to hide out for a while in Italy. It's ofttold story, one questioning if even the most hardened man can be redeemed. What makes this one unique? It's an American set in Europe. That and the director is an established European photographer: Anton Corbijn and that makes the film far more poetic than what we have seen in the past.

All considered, this is quite a remarkable film.
