A most delightful film discovery: Wild Target

“Did they torture you?”

“No, I gave them your address right away.”

How to describe this film?  Quirky, irreverent, and absolutely brilliant.  We almost stopped watching at first because it is rather odd, but frequent chuckles and curiosity led us to the end.  The story of a hit man who falls for his hit and picks up a young apprentice along the way–the three of whom form a makeshift family–is delicious and deeply satisfying.  Realizing it is based on a French film entitled Cible  Èmouvante explains a lot.
