Schneider, a hitman, gets a call from Mertens on the morning of his birthday. He has a last-minute assignment for Schneider who refuses the request because it is his birthday. Mertens insists that it is an important matter. When they meet in Mertens' office, Schneider is told that the target is Ramon Bax, a writer. He lives alone in a secluded place. "It's an easy job. With a little luck you're back home before noon." Schneider accepts the assignment. What was promised to be a simple hit turns out to be more than expected.

    "Putting the "dead" back in deadpan, the ninth feature of van Warmerdam is his most Coen brothers-like film yet, a western in the Dutch wetlands that’s as unpredictable as it is darkly funny."
    Body van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter
  • Highest Rating
