    Fariba - could you spell out your words? It makes it so much easier to follow:

    It was the reply of something like: I hit him! - Very good of you!

    Without more context, it looks like a sarcastic comment about the violent action of hitting "him". Of course, it may also be a compliment for having hit him, because he was being insulting or aggressive.

    Re: very good of u?

    Yes, i think it was exactly a compliment so will mean: u did a good job
    but what i want to know is that "does such an expression exist in English?"
    cause it was a translation for a film (which was not originaly english)
    thanks

    It is a well known expression - whether is it sarcastic or a compliment will be understood by context or by intonation.
