I was all set to watch Cain Toads: The Conquest tonight but I put the dvd in and a trailer for 7 Days played.... holy crap it hooked me and I remembered that I have it lying around somewhere waiting to be seen. So Cain Toads got a flick... 7 Days, WOW! This is one brutal and unflinching film. A little girl kisses her dad goodbye and leaves for school. In the meantime mummy & daddy make use of the serenity and screw. Unbeknownst to them while they're having sex their daughter is being brutally raped, beaten and murdered. Cut to the body being found by the father & police and the film's title appears. The killer is identified and the guilt ridden the father kidnaps him and begins a 7 day torture session. Plot wise that's all that needs be said. This French-Canadian film is a bleak experience with absolutely no light. The performances are great and the guy who plays the killer is incredible. It's a difficult watch but well worth the time. Underlying the barbarity is a moral quandary as the father experiences a whole gamete of emotions. Throughout it all the film is asking what you would do? Obviously not for everyone and some people will ask why watch such a violent movie that offers little redemption? My answer to that is that it challenges the viewer. It forces questions and examines consequences. I reckon I'll be watching it again soon.
