Summary
Terence Stamp is Willie, a gangster2s henchman turned informer trying to live in peace, hiding in a remote Spanish village. Sun-dappled bliss turns to nerve-racking suspense, however, when two hit men, played by a soulless John Hurt and a youthful, loose-cannon Tim Roth, come calling to bring Willie back for execution. This stylish gem from Stephen Frears boasts terrific hard-boiled performances from a roster of England2s best actors, and ravishing photography of its desolate Spanish locations
