Product Description

French-Canadian psychological thriller, adapted by horror writer Patrick Senecal from his own novel. Claude Legault stars as Bruno Hamel, a 30-something surgeon whose young daughter Jasmine (Rose-Marie Coallier) is kidnapped, brutally raped and murdered. When the police arrest the killer (Martin Dubreuil), Bruno abducts him from police custody and informs the police of his elaborate and gruesome plan for revenge, which involves torturing the man for seven days before finally executing him on the seventh day. Remy Girard co-stars as Herve Mercure, the police officer responsible for stopping Bruno.

Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh my god .... 30 Nov 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This really is a stunning film, forget the torture porn analogies, this is probably the first anti-torture porn film. Claude Legault puts in a truly oustanding performance as the surgeon turned torturer who kidnaps the man who has killed his daughter. There's no need for me to tell you what it's about I'll just say it's a brutal, brilliant study of what happens to a man when he actually gets to carry out his revenge fantasies. It's not an easy watch and it has no easy answers, but it's majestic, powerful and disturbing all at the same time.

I felt I needed to leap to the defence of '7 Days' as a few others have here - unhelpful 'Saw' comparsions aside, there is far, far more to this film that meets the eye.

Forget the 'Saw' comparsions; 'torture porn' it isn't - a sombre, bleak study of one man's guilt and desperation following a shocking and sudden bereavement it certainly is.

The desperate journey made by the male lead is a fascinating and moving one (played by Claude Legault). As you've probably gathered; after kidnapping his daughter's killer, Legault's character spends seven days in isolation with him.

In days 1,2, 3 and 4 he 'gives it' to his daughter's murderer hook line and sinker (hence the lazy 'Saw' comparison). Thereafter his doubt, his self questioning, the blurring of his reality, his core morals and a lot more all kick in - it's here that 7 Days goes from good to great. Incredibly deep, incredibly evocative his 'eye for an eye' vs. doing the 'right' thing inner battle plays out superbly.

The sub-plot of the widowed police decective is very intereting too and through his telephone conversations with the kidnapper is also made to question his mindset (his wife was shot dead as revealed early on). In addition' there is the contrast in public opinion - as reveled through newsreels some are completely behind him killing his daughter's murderer, whilst some are not. Another brave look at the human/sometimes media driven psyche.

A very sombre film, brilliantly shot in cold, silvery tones, 7 Days makes you have a good think about things we probably don't want to actally think about! It's not one to 'enjoy'....but it's most certainly not one to forget either.

Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not one for the hardcore gore hound, but... 17 Oct 2010
Format:DVD
I don't normally feel the need to write reviews on items I buy, but this is an exception because I believe it is a film that can quite easily be misunderstood, as evidenced by another reviewers take.

The box doesn't help itself with the Saw comparison. I personally can't abide what Saw has become, the first one was a bit of a watershed for the 'torture porn' sub genre (I do hate that name) and a landmark horror of the noughties, but it soon descended into absolute farce, not scary, not clever, and as it limped to into it's sixth instalment, I would go far as to say totally laughable.

Anyway, back to 7 days. This film is a bleak, unsettling documentary of one man's quest for revenge on the rapist and murderer of his 8 year old daughter. He manages to kidnap him from police custody and takes him to a deserted cabin in the middle of nowhere where he plans to torture him to death over the following 7 days. However he is a doctor, and although this comes in handy when exacting his revenge on his daughters killer, he was also a compassionate and gentle person before he lost his daughter, and his actions coupled with the grief of losing his only child start to take there toll on his sanity...

There are scenes of brutality but they are sparse, which hieghtens their impact when the do happen. The violence is realistic and nasty, but overall the movie is more focused on the doctors descent into depression. It is light on dialogue and music, preferring to convey the despair and depression through silence and a washed out colour palette. It is a far more human film than the Saw comparison gives it credit for, and the real horror fans who appreciate more than vivisectionist splatter will find plenty to immerse themselves in here.

A sterling effort and a quite haunting film in it's own right. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping and gruelling 22 July 2012
Format:DVD
7 Days is a French Canadian film so the film is subbed and the actors speak French. There is no English at all during the entirety of the movie, so if you don't like subbed films, then perhaps this film isn't for you.

This is an incredible, if a little long-winded film about a little girl who goes missing and is found raped and murdered. Her father, having found out who her killer is, decides to extract his revenge on him by ambushing the van he was being transported to prison to, kidnapping him and torturing him for a week. His methods are brutal and barbaric and will have even the most harderned horror fans squirming.

All of the actors are incredible in this movie. It isn't just meant to be about violence, but is a psychological thriller. It delves deep into the father's mind and really portrays how such a devastating crime can have the most awful effect on loved ones etc. It makes you wonder about some things; what is right, and what is wrong?

Me, my brother and my boyfriend have suggested this film to friends and family and everyone has enjoyed this film.
