Milo, a former hitman on the run, can't stand more than just the heat from the kitchen when his life as a countryside baker is threatened by the arrival of his former bosses. With his life in danger—and his past catching up to him—Milo's cover is blown as he quickly becomes the talk of his village. A comedic adventure, Assassin in Love is an action-packed romp filled with small town quirks and big city thugs.
"The Baker" is an "Assassin in Love"
"Assassin in Love" or as it has been previously known, "The Baker", is an awesomely delightful and twisted black dramedy from the UK. No one does these better than they. Most of this movie is shot in the lovely and surprisingly sunny Welsh countryside which keeps the tone light and upbeat. And, this is the paradox - a light/black comedy/drama presented as easily as two happy children skipping down the sidewalk. Italia provides the cadence through the joyful 'que sera' of songs like "Volare", "Jump the Line" crooned by Belefonte, and other memorable tunes. The rhythm and pace of the whole package simply envelopes the watcher. Damien Lewis, as usual is great, but the entire cast was a joyous surprise. My teens, my 26 y.o. neice and I had a ball watching this one!
