Dossier K
Belgium, 2009, 116 Minute Running Time
Topics: Crime, Detective/Mystery, Thriller
Programs: Best of the Fest, World Cinema Now
Language: Dutch, Albanian English Sub-Titles

Bustling Antwerp and backwoods Albania serve as the twin stages of tragedy in Dossier K, a hard-hitting crime thriller that reunites the buddy cops from the internationally acclaimed The Alzheimer Case (PSIFF 2004). This time they are a bit older, a bit more cautious and struggling with the departmentally ordered “new approach” to crime. Soon, our heroes Vincke (Koen De Bouw, also in this year’s Madly in Love) and Verstuyft (Werner De Smedt) are plunged into a violent clash between two worlds: the Albanian mountain clans trying to hold on to their ancient codes and a modern metropolis desperately protecting its brittle privileges from invasion.

Caught in the eye of that storm are a young Albanian on a mission-of-honor to avenge his father and a lovesick cop dead set on stopping the blood feud. By the time they both figure out that they’ve been manipulated from the outset, they are on a fatal collision course. Unexpectedly moving and refreshingly sober about the day-to-day risks of police work, this modern revenge story with the intensity of a classic tragedy will leave audiences on the edge of their seats.
