How far would you go to get revenge on the man who raped and killed your little girl? In the tradition of the horror masterpiece The Last House On The Left, this Canadian nail-biter that premiered at Sundance shows a doctor (Claude Legault) kidnapping, tying up and then methodically extracting every drop of justice from the vile criminal he is convinced did that horrific deed. The hostage (a very creepy Martin Dubreuil) begs and pleads and insists he s innocent...only to turn around and boast of his crimes, perhaps in the vain hope that the nightmare will end sooner. But the not-so-good doctor has told his wife and the police and the world he will not relent for seven days.

The most unpleasant to view is the brutal and most vivid crime scene I have ever witnessed on film involving a child.
The fact that I saw this and they show the father of the little girl " who happens to be a doctor" viewing the same scene lends to the fact that I was not the least bit "ok maybe a little" Disturbed by what he does to his daughters rapist and murderer when he cleverly gets him as his captive and keeps him for seven days and tortures him all while torturing himself as well.
The film makes you think and it makes you think about things like does being this close to the person that killed and raped your child make you feel better ,give you a sense of justice or does it just make you imagine and visualize the entire tragic ordeal over and over again?
It is very brutal and there are some serious questions that arise.
I didn't see it as a horror film but more of a psychological drama.all in all a very well acted and executed film.
7 Days is a realistic movie about how someone might respond if their 8 year old daughter was raped and murdered by a heartless creep. The lives of the Hamels are completely turned upside down. No laughs and smiles here. Notice how Sylvie (Jasmine's mother played by Fanny Mallette - incredible performance!) goes from a normal happy person to distraught within seconds of the news of her daughter's disapperance and then grief striken, withdrawn and depressed at the realization of her daughter's death. See Sylvie completely break down with hysterical, uncontrolable tears while her husband Bruno (played by Claude Legault - absolutely one of the best actors I have ever seen in a movie) tries to console her.
7 Days is a superbly acted, well written and well directed movie that is very disturbing and realistic. There is no music soundtrack - not one note - which I think adds to the realism of the film. Without giving too much away, this is a revenge film (Bruno is a doctor!) but the film goes far deeper than just that. It is a psychological study on the ways violence affects different people, such as the detective (great performance by Remy Girard), and the possible ramifications of vengence. Anthony (the creepy murderer - magnificent performance by Martin Dubreuil) is no 90 pound weakling carrying 50 pounds of guns and ammunition through a hole 2 feet by 2 feet in a bullet proof window. Oh no, Anthony is a sociopath bully with absolutely no feelings towards his victims or their family members.
This movie might be a little bit too realistic for people who believe everything they see on the news. I highly recommend this movie. Really, really well done. Not for the squeamish. Also, this movie is in French with English subtitles so you will have to pay attention while you watch. The first time I saw this movie, I watched the movie without subtitles. I couldn't understand a word of what they were saying and I still thought it was great.
When I see the mother of an allegedly murdered 6 year old girl on national television joking about how her daughter used to make liver lips in the window of the school bus and then break out in uproarious laughter just days after her daughter was allegedly killed, questions I would want to ask the mother are: 1. Are you in need of psychiatric care? 2. Is your daughter really dead? 3. Did you ever really have a daughter? Next time the people who make up stories for the news should consult the director of this film Daniel Grou for a few pointers on how to make them more realistic.
