The American
What it's about:

Alone among assassins, Jack is a master craftsman. When a job in Sweden ends more harshly than expected for this American abroad, he vows to his contact, Larry, that his next assignment will be his last.

Jack reports to the Italian countryside, where he holes up in a small town and relishes being away from death for a spell. The assignment, as specified by a Belgian woman, Mathilde, is in the offing as a weapon is constructed. Surprising himself, Jack seeks out the friendship of a local priest, Father Benedetto and pursues romance with a local woman, Clara. But, by stepping out of the shadows, Jack may be tempting fate.

An assassin hides out in Italy for one last assignment.
