The American Soundtrack [2010]


Alone among assassins, Jack (George Clooney) is a master craftsman. When a job in Sweden ends more harshly than expected for this American abroad, he vows to his contact Larry (Bruce Altman) that his next assignment will be his last. Jack reports to the Italian countryside, where he holes up in a small town and relishes being away from death for a spell. The assignment, as specified by a Belgian woman, Mathilde (Thekla Reuten), is in the offing as a weapon is constructed. Surprising himself, Jack seeks out the friendship of local priest Father Benedetto (Paolo Bonacelli) and pursues romance with local woman Clara (Violante Placido). But by stepping out of the shadows, Jack may be tempting fate. Adapted from the 2005 novel "A Very Private Gentleman" by Martin Booth.

Album by Focus Features with original music by Herbert Grönemeyer, Patty Pravo, Maria Callas/Philharmonia Orchestra/Tullio Serafin, and Cuby & the Blizzard.
