Carfree gangster movie
- "In Bruges", by Martin McDonagh, with Colin Farrell and Ralph Fiennes, 2008.
It is largely an outdoor movie, with the medieval carfree city center of
Bruges as the almost exclusive setting.
Nobody uses a car (only a train is used briefly) and I do not recall having
seen a single car in the movie, maybe apart from the background of some very
brief shots outside the city center. As it is a gangster movie, this results
in an interesting feeling of both freedom and vulnerability with all the
characters, who move around without car "armour" at any point.
The movie has much graphic violence, do not watch it with kids.
