a thriller which is politically incorrect
7 February 2007 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

a thriller which uses the visual medium to full effect without being overly gory - although the director does not shrink from shocking pictures when he feels they are justified. Depending upon whether you are a cynic or a believer in justice, you may or may not like the subject-matter: but the film forces you to think and may manage to surprise you (but saying how would be a spoiler!) The French-Canadian accents and dialect are of course of no interest to those who choose another language (my copy only had German and French soundtracks) but they add an extra touch of authenticity. All in all a worthwhile film to watch, even for those (like me!) who are not into violence (even part two of the "Lord of the Rings" was a little too bloodthirsty for me!)
