'Code 37' is better known from its TV-series than from this film. Set as usual in the Belgian-Flemish city of Ghent, it provides reasonable crime-entertainment that keeps you watching throughout. The more so while its crime-plot is sexually charged, another trade-mark of the series.
Above all, this film 'Code 37' is very Belgian. Which means that its well-built story develops a little slower than you may be used to. And not as spectacular as you may expect. 'Code 37' deliberately emphasizes on normal, pretty recognizable people, doing their routine in everyday's circumstances.
In fact, the weakest part of this film is to be found in its shooting. Don't have yourself distracted by that, however, for 'Code 37' surely makes an entertaining watch.
