The Memory of a Killer (Erik Van Looy – 2003) A

A French assassin is sent to clean up some big wig’s mess in Belgium. He draws the line at killing a 13 year old girl. This of course puts him at odds with his employer, client and the police. Seems like a story we’ve seen many variations on. However, filter all that through the prism of Alzheimer that our aging but efficient assassin is starting to struggle with. Add on top the pitch perfect subtle performance by Jan Decleir as the killer who is slowly loosing his mind and you have one hell of a movie.
