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

Police thrillers (or thrillers in general) are nowadays being made for TV. And I'm not saying that in a derogative way. TV shows have a high quality nowadays. Still many people wouldn't bother watching the shows and/or the movies. If you are one of those people then you might be wrong here.

Might because this Belgian movie could be good enough for you to like, even if you don't consider yourself a fan of crime. The good thing is that since the movie stays true throughout its running time, you will now once you are into the movie. After the initial 5-10 minutes you should have figured out, if this movie is worth your while.

Nicely acted and with a story to back that up, this is just another entry from Belgium in the Thriller genre in the recent years. They might be up to something over there. And it's nice to see that they have the scriptwriting talent to match their acting generation.
