Classic who done it British flick, with classic ingredients: murder, mystery, young apprenticeoxford_murders and old experienced mentor played masterfully by John Hurt. Young apprentice is played by a non other but a hobbit Elijah Wood, who this time is not wearing jewelry but is searching for solution for a puzzle. If you like who done it movies, this one`s for you.  Great script, good production and lots of mystery make an excellent movie. I almost forgot also there’s the perfect amount of nudity and a yummy Leonor Watling, so there is something for everybody. Enjoy.

Director: Álex de la Iglesia

Cast: Elijah Wood, John Hurt, Leonor Watling, Julie Cox

Fun Stuff: Michael Caine was approached by director Álex de la Iglesia to play the leading role. Jeremy Irons was also considered for this part that, ultimately, went to John Hurt.
