Terence Stamp is Willie, a gangster's henchman turned informer trying to live in peaceful hiding in a remote Spanish village. Sun-dappled bliss turns to nerve-racking suspense, however, when two hit men-played by a soulless John Hurt and a youthful, loose-cannon Tim Roth-come a-calling to bring Willie back for execution. This stylish early gem from Stephen Frears boasts terrific performances from a roster of England's best hard-boiled actors and ravishing photography of its desolate Spanish locations-a splendid backdrop for a rather sordid story.
