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 »

Very emotional roller-coaster !
2 November 2010 | by jpurits-604-559217See all my reviews

I really liked this movie and am sad to say that I do not want to watch it again. The subject matter is very disturbing and not something you really want to go through more than once. The movie was very well done and realistic. While watching it you will go through a whole case of emotions, from anger, distraught, disgust to the feeling of love a father has for his daughter.

Amazingly acted and directed, this movie was done in a perfect, raw, way to help you feel what the father is going through.

I really can't understand how some reviewers did not see a point in this movie. I would spell it out for them, but do not want to spoil the experience for anyone reading this review. There is a point to this movie and it's really simple.

I love the fact that this movie did not have the usual twists and surprises that have become so prevalent with Hollywood thrillers. Seems like a lot of plots now a days rely too heavily on the surprise twist and "I did not see that coming" response from the movie goer rather than emotion.

This movie hits you like a tonne of bricks and keeps you on the edge until the very end.

WELL DONE !!!
