The Dark Moment:
Rookie hitman Ray (Colin Farrell) is sent to the purgatory that is Bruges, after he accidentally kills a child in the run-up to Christmas.
As Ray puts it, There's a Christmas tree somewhere in London with a bunch of presents underneath it that'll never be opened. And I thought, if I survive all of this, I'd go to that house, apologize to the mother there, and accept whatever punishment she chose for me. Prison...death...didn't matter. Because at least in prison and at least in death, you know, I wouldn't be in fuckin' Bruges."
