Hanna (Ronan) is a teenage girl. Uniquely, she has the strength, the stamina, and the skills of a soldier; these come from being raised by her father (Bana), an ex-CIA man, in the wilds of Finland. Living a life unlike any other teenager, her upbringing and training have been one and the same, all geared to making her the perfect assassin. The turning point in her adolescence is a sharp one; sent into the world by her father on a mission, Hanna journeys stealthily across Europe while eluding agents dispatched after her by a ruthless intelligence operative with secrets of her own (Blanchett). As she nears her ultimate target, Hanna faces startling revelations about her existence and unexpected questions about her humanity.Written by
Words are spoken during the credits. At the end of the first song: "Music: A combination of sounds with a view to beauty of form and expression of emotion". And after the end credits: "Schlaf weiter" (sleep on). See more »

The Chemical Brothers contributed the soundtrack, that's alone worth a bonus point! The movie itself is a bold mixture between art-house and action- thriller. It has a constant weird undertone of a fairy tale - the Story of Red riding Hood comes more than once through ones mind.
The acting is really good, especially Cate Blanchett as evil cia-operative agent and her henchman, played by Tom Hollander, where a delight to watch. The camera work and the pacing is masterfully executed. There is a seemingly unedited one-shot-take in Berlin, following Eric Banas Character from a Bus Station down to a near Subway Station, where he then has to fight a couple of agents... This Scene alone is worth watching!
