In Bruges

All being well with Blogger (and that's assuming a lot!) this should be posted automatically while I'm away. In Bruges, in fact.

We went to watch this gangster film, you see. In Bruges stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson (and Colin Farrell's eyebrows, who really deserve an acting credit all on their own) as 2 hitmen who are forced to spend a week in Bruges, Belgium. One loves the place - the canals, the art galleries, the cobbledy streets - and one spends the whole movie whining about how much he hates it. Until everyone ends up shooting each other, of course. It's a gloriously black, horrifying comedy. I don't know if it was part-sponsored by the Belgian Tourist Board, but 10 minutes in I leaned over to Mr Ashbless and whispered "We're going there."

So we are. I might post some pictures when I get back. In the meantime rest assured I will be eating lots of Belgian chocolate.

See - movies do influence how people act!
