The Irish in Film
A Complete List of Irish Films

 Title  In Bruges
Two Irish hit men are sent to Bruges, a medieval resort town in Belgium, to hide out. In some ways, this makes the film more Belgian than Irish. Still, the point is really about how the characters react to their new environment. The older (Gleeson) enjoys the picturesque - stuck in the past - atmosphere, while the younger (Farrell) bristles at the quaintness of the place. The town is as much a character as the people. And can't we say the same for Ireland? Isn't it the hidden coves that dot the Dingle coast where people still speak the mother tongue that we picture in ours minds when we hear the word Ireland? This action-comedy works on many levels, and threaded throughout are the two 'friendly' Irishmen and their reactions to the Americans, English and Belgians they meet. Link to reviews Click picture
