| Dark and twisted comedy - as it should be
Louise has been working for a factory for many years. When the factory packs up overnight she and her former coworkers formulate a plan to spend the small amount of compensation money in a somewhat less than legal way - they want to hire a hit-man to finish off the boss.

Set in a typical dark and dreary high-unemployment village this beginning of a story is a solid base for a very twisted comedy. It sets off at a good speed and keeps rolling forward and when it finally ends it does so with a fitting ending. Granted, some bits are high on clichés, but it gets away with that because some other bits are so good they count as counterweights for that.

The choice of actors is great - especially the female lead character. She plays her character so well it almost comes across as a natural second skin. The male lead is great too and their combination works wonders, they just fit really well.
