Clooney is in peak form in this tense, critically acclaimed thriller about a high-tech weapons craftsman-and occasional assassin-holed up in a remote European village.As an assassin, Jack is constantly on the move and always alone. After a job in Sweden ends moreharshly than expected for this American abroad, Jack retreats to the Italian countryside. He relishes being away from death for a spell as he holes up in a small medieval town. While there, Jack takes an assignment to construct a weapon for a mysterious contact, Mathilde. Savoring the peaceful quietude he finds in the mountains of Abruzzo, Jack accepts the friendship of local priest Father Benedetto and pursues a torrid liaison with a beautiful woman, Clara. Jack and Clara's time together evolves into a romance, one seemingly free of danger. But by stepping out of the shadows, Jack may be tempting fate.Directed with style and visual flair by Anton Corbijn. Based on the novel "A Very Private Gentleman" by Martin Booth.
