(Great Britain/France, 2007, 108 minutes)
Two cash-strapped London brothers must borrow money from their wealthy uncle, but he asks them for a favour in return: dispose of a whistleblower who may ruin him. Tired and tiresome melodrama that recycles its writer-director's usual themes from previous and better movies without adding nothing new and doesn't even have the saving grace of the occasional witty one-liner. A disappointment.
