An accurate Drama With My all time favorite actor
21 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Brad Dourif!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He is my favorite actor and he was at his best in this film. Well it's my second favorite movie. It's about 2 people, Martin Klamski (Brad Dourif), and Willy (Dominique Deruddere). Martin meets Willy getting in a fight over cold soup. Martin stops the fight and bonds with Willy. Martin finally asks Willy if he wants to go to Istanbul with him. But Willy doesn't know about Martin's dreaded past of a slain 10 year old immigrant girl. Later Willy finds out about Martin's history of child assassination and finds out why Martin wants to go to Istanbul. He wanted to turn himself into Istanbul's prison so he could rot in a worse punishment.
