Did You Know?


Based on the book of the same named by author Mo Hayder. The Treatment is the second volume in the series which follows English detective Jack Caffrey. See more »


Film is not developed under a red light in a dark room, as shown. The chemicals are too sensitive to light, and exposing it to even a tiny bit of light will fog the picture. The film is placed in a light sealed canister, either under total darkness or using a special light sealed handling bag, that allows chemicals to be added and removed without exposing the film to light. Film paper onto which a picture has been projected is, however, developed as shown. See more »

What a film! Searing!
12 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A policeman with a personal back story of child abuse / abduction attempts to track down a paedophile who has attacked a family. The start of the film is deliberately unclear and it starts at a slow pace but stick with it. Note everything. Add one detail or take one detail away and this film would be less than it is. The pace steadily picks up with the increasing frustration of the brilliantly played investigating officer as he attempts, through official and increasingly unofficial means, to prevent another attack. The mood of the film is dark. The story line meticulous. This film doesn't spoon feed you. You really have to concentrate and even then I guarantee it will throw you off balance more than once. The subject matter couldn't be darker or more disturbing but is never shown directly on screen. The crimes are shown through the consequences, and the corrosive effects on the victims and the investigators. The perpetrator is a truly chilling creation. Entertaining isn't really an appropriate word for this film but, if you bear with it until the story begins to unfold and you can bear with the subject matter, you'll stick with it to the end and it will stick with you for a long time afterwards. Watch this genuinely stunning Belgian film before America goes for the almost inevitable remake. I cannot imagine America producing anything approaching this level of bleak brilliance. Reminiscent: Silence of the Lambs, Seven. My rating 9/10.
