Synopsis

John Hurt, Tim Roth, Terence Stamp, Laura Del Sol
Willie Parker (Stamp) used to be a gangster. After betraying his former colleagues, he fled to Spain where he thought he could hide from their vengeance. For ten years he manages but one day two hitmen kidnap him. Their orders are to escort him to Paris where he is to stand 'trial'. But it is a long way to Paris...
An offbeat crime drama featuring excellent performances. All the usual conventions and stereotyping are turned on their heads. Well received on its release, The Hit made very little impression at the box office. This is a rare screening; do not let it go by this time round.
Best Actor, Evening Standard British Film Awards 1985
