Movie: Hanna

Hanna is hip, stylish fun with very fine acting, engaging cinematography, some fine music and lots of scenes of Berlin's gritty underside.

It is (slightly) marred only by a couple of logical errors in the script, as when poor Hanna, who is scared by electricity and television in one scene, and lacks money for food in many others, wanders into an internet cafe in Berlin and does a bunch of research that indirectly helps fill in some of the background of the story.

The NYT review does not do it justice, and reminds me again that I wish A.O. Scott would do all of their reviews.

If you are in the mood for some high-end Hollywood thriller fun, Hanna is recommended.
