7 days is a revenge thriller that will be playing at the Sundance Film Festival 2010 in it's midnight movie line-up. The Canadian film was directed by Daniel Grou and written by Patrick Senecal. The film follows a doctor who seeks revenge by kidnapping, torturing and killing the man who murdered his young daughter.
Here is the full story synopsis for the film.
Bruno Hamel is a thirty eight year old surgeon. He lives in Drummondville with his wife Sylvie, and their eight year-old daughter Jasmine. Like many happy people, he is leading an uneventful life until a beautiful fall afternoon, when his daughter is raped and murdered. From then on, the world of the Hamel family collapses. When the murderer is arrested, a terrible project germinates in Bruno's darkened mind. He plans to capture the "monster" and make him pay for his crime. The day the murderer appears in Court, Hamel, who had prepared his plan in great detail, kidnaps the monster and later sends the police a brief message stating that the rapist and murderer of his daughter was going to be tortured for 7 days and then executed. Once this task accomplished, he will then give himself up.
The movie stars Rémy Girard, Claude Legault, Fanny Mallette, Martin Dubreuil, Rose-Marie Coallier.
