Critic Reviews for 7 Days (Les 7 jours du talion)
Director Grou lacks the gene for sheer, bloody exploitation, he also doesn't know how to rack up the tension and get under viewers' collective skin.
Despite the blood and gore, 7 Days is a cut above the usual splice-and-dice horror festival, but it's not for the squeamish or fainthearted.
Like most brave thrillers that delve into very dark places, '7 Days' is not so much "fun" as it is fascinating.
This first feature from Daniel Grou, which recently premiered at Sundance, has much to offer.
...one of the most gripping thrillers to come around in quite some time.
Audience Reviews for 7 Days (Les 7 jours du talion)
An extremely uncomfortable drama that follows a man yearning for revenge and doing things he could never imagined himself capable of. The gut-wrenching story is surprisingly moving but it nevertheless goes a bit too far with some poor, shallow symbolism.
An emotionally dark and brutal movie, but with the over extended silences and poor camera work the only person that feels like they are being tortured is the audience!
If you go into this expecting an extreme torure-porn gore flick you will be left disappointed. This is not a horror film, it is disturbing thought-provoking drama about a father who kidnaps the man responsible for the rape and murder of his daughter and plans to torture him over a period of 7 days. The film is grim and has a cold realistic atmosphere throughout with no musical score and little dialogue. There are only three moments of physical torture to endure, though they are not very gory they still are brutal and painful to watch. But the pacing of the film was quite slow and the ending was unsatisfactory, but the acting was very good all-round.
