A hit man has second thoughts about his career and seeks refuge from his boss by finding work as a baker in a rural Welsh village.
I am often a bit leery of the term "black comedy" because it is sometimes used to describe films that I find strange and unfunny – but that is not the case with Gareth Lewis's wonderful new movie The Baker. This clever film made me smile, laugh, guffaw, and just plain feel good! It also made me wonder about the kind of mind that could conceive such an unusual story. It is about a reformed paid assassin hiding out as a village baker and searching for love and a "normal life" – in a town where the villagers are far from normal! The story is different and funny but never tasteless or absurd. The entire cast are wonderful – especially The Baker played by Damian Lewis who sets just the right note as he convincingly portrays a paid killer, an inept baker, and a sweet, nervous, nice guy who thinks everyone deserves a second chance. I highly recommend The Baker and look forward to future films from Gareth Lewis, an inventive and entertaining writer/director with a wicked sense of humor!
