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 »

I'll help you find the real killer.
31 March 2012 | by (Leesburg, FL) – See all my reviews

Director Daniel Grou shows that he has much promise. First, a film without music is rare, and in this case was perfect. Secondly, the action, while graphic, moves smoothly. It is a story, a film, that you will remember seeing.

The film begins with an unforgivable crime—the rape and murder of a 8- year-old girl by a convicted sex offender. Her father, a wealthy surgeon (Claude Legault), chains the alleged killer in a secluded dungeon, savoring his captive's (Rémy Girard) slow torture.

The doctor, dismissing all he previously stood for, is torn by guilt as he proceeds. It is an excellent chance to reflect on the desirability of revenge. His last statement really drove that home.
