A surgeon seeks revenge on the man who raped and murdered his eight year old daughter by kidnapping her accused killer and torturing him for seven days. His life and marriage destroyed by the heinous crime, grieving father Bruno Hamel (Claude Legault) sinks in to a deep depression, and begins formulating a diabolical plan for revenge. Intercepting the police escort as they transport the alleged perpetrator (Martin Dubreuil) to the courthouse, Bruno abducts the man and whisks him away into the countryside. Bruno's plan: slowly torture his daughter's killer for seven days, and then execute him at the absolute height of pain. Keeping police abreast of his sinister project throughout the week, Bruno announces that he will turn himself in once justice has been served. Author Patrick Senécal adapts his own best-selling novel for the screen in a film directed by Daniel Grou (aka Podz). ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

This movie isn't for the week of heart or someone with a weak stomach. Yes it is in french (w/eng.sub titles), but there's not a whole lotta dialog and it's really easy to follow (if you have half a brain) all in all it's a very good movie about how far a man would actually go after something very terrible happens to his little girl (right now the French are making better horror/thrillers then the u.s) it's a pretty intense movie well worth a rent)
Though the storyline is similar to Law Abiding Citizen, it's a completely different animal. Yes, it's in French with English subtitles, but it's easy to follow. (I too hate subtitles). This movie has no music, very little background noise & not much dialogue which adds to the rawness of this film. This film did a very good job of allowing the viewer to intimately experience the parent's feelings & pain as they go on day by day. There were parts where I couldn't bear to watch and there were parts where I couldn't look away. I'd defintely suggest renting it.
I liked this movie, but I hate sub-titles. The movie just shows how far a father will go for revenge to a man that tortured and raped and killed his little girl. It makes you wander what you would do in this situation???
