Yesterday, a few months after the release of the trailer, Alliance Vivafilm publicly released the official poster for the thriller Les sept jours du talion (official English title: 7 Days), which will be released on February 5, 2010. For those who don't know, this film is adapted from an excellent novel by Patrick Senécal and stars Claude Legault, Martin Dubreuil and Rémy Girard in the leading roles. The following is a description of the story and the trailer.
Bruno Hamel (Claude Legault) is a surgeon who succeeded in life and lives in Drummondville, Quebec. He happily lives with Sylvie (Fanny Mallette), his wife, and Jasmine, their daughter. However, after Bruno let his daughter go play outside, Jasmine is found dead (and raped). When Jasmine's killer (Martin Dubreuil) is arrested and ready to go in court, Bruno has one idea in his mind: he wants to take the chance to kidnap the "monster". Besides, while in hiding (with the "monster" as a hostage), he tells to the police that he'll torture the killer for seven days and then kill him. Afterwards, Bruno plans to turn himself in to the authorities. Nonetheless, will Sgt. Det. Hervé Mercure (Rémy Girard) manage to arrest both Anthony Lemaire and Bruno as the clock is ticking?
