This is the official movie trailer of The American starring George Clooney with supporting cast Thekla Reuten, Bruce Altman, Violante Placido,Bruce Altman and Paolo Bonacelli.


Alone among assassins, Jack (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 of "In Bruges"), is in the offing as a weapon is constructed. Surprising himself, Jack seeks out the friendship of local priest Father Benedetto (Italian stage and screen veteran Paolo Bonacelli) and pursues romance with local woman Clara (Italian leading lady Violante Placido). But by stepping out of the shadows, Jack may be tempting fate.

The Movie Critics Preview:

Screaming Blue Reviews - Early word has reportedly been mixed. Some early reviews complain that its slow pace and reserved tone may disappoint audiences looking for more of a traditional Euro-thriller along the lines of Ronin than the Day of the Jackal-esque feel hinted at by the trailer below. This preview, one of a couple now circulating the Internet, has sheer atmosphere than probably any trailer we’ve seen since last year’s The Limits of Control, itself another hitman thriller steeped in European ambience.
