4.0 out of 5 stars Très bon film si on aime le genre, bien joué. Sept. 10 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Il faut aimer le genre mais moi j'aime bien alors je suis très satisfaite. Le jeu de Claude Legault est sublime. La fin est un peu brutal et nous laisse sur notre faim mais dans l'ensemble, un autre très bon film Québécoise. Attention: très violent. Je ne conseille pas ce film au moins de 18 ans à moins d'une très grande maturité. Et même un adulte sensible, prière de vous abstenir.

4.0 out of 5 stars An eye for an eye? Sept. 18 2010
By Giancarlo Cairella - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Although the marketing hype is clearly trying to push this French-language Canadian production as yet another torture-porn horror movie in the 'Saw' vein, this is actually a very somber and realistic story about loss, forgiveness and revenge, although one which features a lot more graphic violence and gore than, say, Death Wish.

The basic premise is straightforward: Claude Legault plays Bruno Hamel, a successful Canadian surgeon who suffers a devastating family loss at the hands of a child molester and decides to personally administer his special brand of justice by kidnapping the perpetrator, transporting him to a remote location and torturing him over the course of 7 days while keeping him alive with his medical skills and equipment.

Most of the tension, and the most interesting aspect of the film, comes from the contrast between the main character's actions and his motivation. Will he be caught by the police before he has a chance to complete his plan? Will he give himself up or will he kill his prisoner? The extremely gruesome nature of Bruno's vendetta doesn't help the audience pick a side: we sympathize with his plight and want him to get away with it, but the violence keeps us at arm's length and prevents us from fully identifying with him.

I won't spoil the plot, but the film manages to remain engaging, though not exactly fast-paced, for most of the running time, thanks to a couple of plot detours along the way (including the involvement of another victimized parent). The graphic violence is strong and definitely goes for realism rather than being a showcase for ingenious effects (no fancy "death machines" and flashy editing a la "Saw"). Fun for the whole family this ain't!

Too graphic and explicit for mainstream audiences, and not flashy and 'entertaining' enough for the horror fan crowd, it's clear why the film bypassed theaters entirely in the US and went straight to DVD. Ultimately, the story is a bit too derivative to offer real surprises for anyone who has seen more than a few films of this kind, and the tone is so bleak and downbeat that very few people will pick this as their evening's source entertainment. But if you are looking for a serious and very explicit/graphic revenge thriller, this is a good candidate.

5.0 out of 5 stars An adult masterpiece in every sense of the word! Sept. 6 2010
By Closer Look TCB - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
First off, totally ignore the description that has been offered for this film on Amazon and I dare-say the packaging as well. This is NOT a horror film in the style of "Last House on the Left." It has absolutely nothing to do with that particular original or remake. And to even think about comparing this to SAW or HOSTEL is beyond insulting to the integrity and intelligence of this film. "7 Days" is a dark, disturbing and very sad glimpse into the depths of hell that one grieving man will sink in order to get even with the murderer / rapist of his child. Without any background score whatsoever, zero punches pulled and performances from the entire cast that border on 'perfect', "7 Days" manages to effortlessly and smoothly take you in from the opening frames. And when it's over, it's really not over. Most audiences will not be able to shake the impact of this film for days, if that soon.

"7 Days" is simply one of the most provocative and gut-wrenching films I have ever seen; terrifyingly detailed without sinking to traditional over-the-top horror with the purpose of trying to shock jaded audiences. At about the ninety minute point, I thought the film might be running out of ideas, but the filmmaker is far too good for that. For the final half-hour or so, "7 Days" shifts into startlingly unexpected territory, with one sequence near the end that produces more chills than any twenty Stephen King novels.

As far as content, this is extremely violent and gruesome in a clinical sense, the language is raw at times and there is an abundance of nudity. This is a very adult film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grim and disturbing! A solid film on an ugly subject! May 5 2013
By Quadro Sinead Summer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is a very grim and pretty disturbing film. I agree with other members on that. Its not as disturbing and brutally bloody as many movies I have seen, like Hostel or Cannibal Holocaust for example. What it is though is a solidly crafted film that tells the story of what some people are capable of when they have had thier lives turned upside down by a horrific tragedy. In the case of this film a young child is raped and then bruatally murdered. The question this film posses is What if you had the chance to torture the man who killed your own kid? Would you do it? And if you did how far would you go? Would it make you feel any better you think? Or would it make you feel worse? Would you feel like a hero, or would it ruin your life? The film examins all of these puzzling questions. Some are answered and others are not. But the film is a dark journey into that world of uncertainty. I think this movie might be an important film to watch for some of those who have lost a child or family member to a sadistic killer and never got the revenge they so longed for. This movie could help exorcize some of those demons of anger and hatred. Its done so believably and realistically that it might help some people visualize the senario and maybe they might feel relieved they never had to chance to find out what they might be capable of. The movie illustrates how simply lost a person can become if they give way to their hatred and anger and get the revenge they so dreamed of. The film seems to say something like this could in reality drive you to madness and destroy you, and maybe vengence is not as sweet as it might seem. For others who have lost a loved one in such a horrible way the film could open up old wounds and maybe in the end its best if these individuals skip the film altogether. But yea, this movie was pretty disturbing, heartless and brutal. But it was also extremely well made and well acted, and the story was rather dream-like and slow but riveting and intense.

5.0 out of 5 stars heart of darkness Dec 26 2012
By .fgd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Thoroughly diverting. The acting never faulted. I was glad there was no music which would have detracted from its realism. At first it is a satisfying revenge film. Then the question arises is loosing his humanity by becoming as sadistic worth the price to avenge the last pain and terror of his daughter.? This question was very compelling. More so because I was agreeing with him and the film never sold itself out by moralising The cashier supported him so he could do what he intended to do in the first place. And yet two chance finds by the father kept the heart element alive during the film so it never devolved into negative pointlessness; it kept its perspective
Is revenge right? No . Does he regret it? No. These two questions are the crux of the film and pulls the viewer into its maelstrom.
An unusual film. It fully explores the grey areas when most other films dealing with the same subject would say revenge is not Christian etc...or use it as an excuse for a gore film. Instead the film takes up a tricky question and handles it with maturity in a satisfying way.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hits one note, over and over... and over... April 13 2011
By Brian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I suppose in the budding subgenre of revenge/torture-porn, '7 Days' distinguishes itself as a superficially polished production that pointedly takes little glee in its subject matter (as echoed in a scene where the killer-cum-victim taunts his victim-cum-torturer for not enjoying his newfound depravity very much). But once the good doctor-- father of the central plot's raped-and-murdered girl-- snaps, the show is all but over: he knows how it's going to end, the cops know how it's going to end, and unfortunately for us the dead-end script makes no attempt to dissuade the viewer from this static sense of fatalism. And so, for the 70-some intervening minutes of the film, we can expect no emotional nuance, no psychological insight, no dramatic tension; we are left simply to watch the doctor mope about (for he has already unraveled), venting his unhappiness on everything from pressboard furniture to the mother of another murder victim (okay, that I didn't see coming, but its unpredictability is nullified by its contrived arbitrariness) to, of course, the pedophiliac-killer himself. The whole exercise is nothing short of mind-numbing. In fact, aside from its impressive cinematography, the only redeeming element in the movie is a sparse, solid performance by the lead detective on the case, grief-stricken from having recently lost his wife in a convenience-store robbery-gone-wrong, who acts convincingly as a human foil to the protagonist's feral persona. Too bad his appearances are few and far between.
