Movie Review: The American

Well, that was not what I expected.  The movie was slow, plodding, and did not have much dialogue.  Yet, I found it intriguing and suspenseful.  The movie is based on a book called "A Very Private Gentleman" by Martin Booth.  I was intrigued enough by the movie that I may take a look at the book.   The story line is simple and incomplete, but sufficient to let you know what is going on.  What questions the plot left open are really unnecessary to the conclusion, which is tragic.  If you are expecting a Bourne like film with suspense and action, this isn't it.  If you want to feel emptiness, and what a life on the edge of law and society does to a man, then this is a movie for you.
