Storyline

Bruno Hamel is a thirty eight year old surgeon. He lives in Drummondville with his wife Sylvie, and their eight year-old daughter Jasmine. Like many happy people, he is leading an uneventful life until a beautiful fall afternoon, when his daughter is raped and murdered. From then on, the world of the Hamel family collapses. When the murderer is arrested, a terrible project germinates in Bruno's darkened mind. He plans to capture the "monster" and make him pay for his crime. The day the murderer appears in Court, Hamel, who had prepared his plan in great detail, kidnaps the monster and later sends the police a brief message stating that the rapist and murderer of his daughter was going to be tortured for 7 days and then executed. Once this task accomplished, he will then give himself up. Written by Deanne Sowter

Goofs

Speaking as a physician, the blow to the perpetrator's right femur, just above his knee joint was sufficient to fracture the femur. Typically a crush injury or other damaging injury to a person's lower extremities causes a fatal shock. In war these injuries are quickly treated with a blood substitute until the person can be moved into a better care facility. In earlier war like WWII, many lives were salvaged that had been lost before because of shock and death. There, they were saved with the venous infusion of plasma. In later conflicts another infusion might be chosen on a battlefield such as Dextran which is the preferred blood volume expander. For a person to survive (as shown in the film) without this regimen is very unlikely. He later does start intravenous infusion, after using the chain to traumatize the victim, yet the victim lived. All are inconsistent with additional sustained life. See more »

Good revenge thriller
4 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Revenge is sweet in 7 Days, a Canadian torture thriller in French when a surgeon's daughter is abducted, raped and killed by a low life criminal named Anthony. The good doctor, Bruno, captures the "suspect" and takes him to an isolated cabin in the woods: and let the games begin for seven days of extreme and inventive pay back.

Bruno calls the police that at the end of one week, he is going kill Anthony after inflicting as much pain as possible, however, the psychopath adapts to his situation and mocks his host for not seeming to enjoy the suffering of his hostage. Tony admits to the murder of the doctors girl, in addition to three others.

Meanwhile, a detective furiously searches for the cabin to stop the execution. This leads to an interesting conclusion; and you will have to decide if justice is served.
