Plot Summary

Alone among assassins, Jack is a master craftsman. When a job in Sweden ends more harshly than expected for this American abroad, he vows to his contact Pavel that his next assignment will be his last. Jack reports to the Italian countryside, where he holes up in a small town and relishes being away from death for a spell. The assignment, as specified by a Belgian woman, Mathilde, is in the offing as a weapon is constructed. Surprising himself, Jack seeks out the friendship of local priest Father Benedetto and pursues romance with local woman Clara. But by stepping out of the shadows, Jack may be tempting fate.

Trivia The reason why George Clooney's character chews gum a lot in the film is because the character simply doesn't have a lot of dialogue and Anton Corbijn wanted Clooney's face to not be completely static throughout. This is also another reference to spaghetti Westerns as Clint Eastwood - also a strong, silent character - would often be chewing tobacco. See more »
Goofs Apart from the news article in the newspaper clipping being written in very bad Swedish, the body of the text is about a suicide bomber being caught on a tram in Gothenburg, Sweden. See more »

Crazy Credits The credits at the end are in order of appearance. However, the 3 hookers are listed in the order: Hooker #2, Hooker #3 and Hooker #1, which logically doesn't make sense. See more »
Quotes Father Benedetto: A man can be rich, if he has God in his heart.
