Storyline

DOSSIER K. is the long anticipated successor to 'The Alzheimer Case' which won numerous awards and was sold to over 30 countries, among which the US (where it was released through Sony Picture Classics). This second film based on a novel by Jef Geeraerts is a dense European thriller about passion, betrayal, revenge, blind ambition and the inevitability of fate. Set against the realistic background of Albanian mafia in Antwerp, the story brings the main characters Erik Vincke and Freddy Verstuyft into a disastrous vortex from which no one seems to escape. Written by Eyeworks Film & TV Drama

Very well-made thriller
12 December 2009 | by (Ghent, Belgium) – See all my reviews

Dossier K is a very well-made thriller, with all the right ingredients. It has an intelligent plot with an exotic Albanian twist, good use of locations in Antwerp, interesting characters even for some of the bad guys, some exciting shoot-outs and car crashes, and a hint of romance. It's a high-paced, adrenalin-soaked movie without any flaws.

On the other hand: it's just that. A well made thriller, a little bit better than the run-of-the-mill Hollywood product, but not much. It's quality entertainment, but not a movie that sticks in your mind afterward. Nor does it offer any food for thought or discussion. The good thing is, it doesn't pretend to be more than it is.
