The Limits of Control
For every way in, there is another way out.
This arthouse piece has generally not impressed the critics. The story is set in Spain, where a lone hitman travels from location to location, exchanging matchboxes with diamonds for matchboxes with instructions, which he duly follows. He is on a mission to kill someone, but along the way he has to resist the charms of a naked young lady (continually). All the people he meets share their philosophies with him, which he patiently listens to.
