Did You Know?

Goofs

The 3rd Generation Glock 17 handgun used by Milo (and later found by Eggs) is not "made almost entirely of plastic, making it undetectable by metal detectors" as claimed. It does have a polymer frame, but the slide (top portion), barrel and internals are all made of metal that would be easily detected by a metal detector. Also, while considerably quieter, a suppressed 9mm handgun is still much louder than depicted in most movies to include this one. See more »

nice
10 August 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

dark humor, idyllic place, a lot of strange characters and lovely story. British at all, it is the kind of film who seduce and enjoy. the serious subject has adorable nuances of old fashion tale. it is its virtue - to be more than common comedy, to transform a thriller in a safe story about values, beginnings and Welsh landscapes. n interesting presence - Michael Gambon in a key role for the levels of film. and Nikolaj Coaster - Waldau in a nice character skin before the river of Games of Thrones.a nice film . smart, touching, full of pictures of common figures of a rural community. a kind of cake. sure, very special.
