THE MEMORY OF A KILLER

DUTCH + FRENCH | 120 MINUTES | KENDALL SQUARE

"Seek and you shall find" is the directive that sends thoughtful detective Eric Vincke (Koen De Bouw) and his sharp-shooting partner, Freddy Verstuyft (Werner De Smedt), searching for clues to a murder. In this above-average procedural thriller, itís the killer himself who issues the order. Utilizing a gothic Belgian locale, director Erik Van Looy orchestrates an intricate game of cat and mouse. Angelo Ledda (veteran Jan Decleir), the graying rodent, is a victim of childhood abuse; heís also a cold-hearted contract killer exhibiting advanced signs of Alzheimerís. Refusing to kill a 12-year-old girl, he turns on his client, leading Eric toward a web of political blackmail and child prostitution. Only Angeloís deadly skills and Ericís sympathy can keep him from becoming trapped within an increasingly confused maze. Convoluted? Yes ó thrillingly so. Seek and youíll find a stylish thriller that lingers in the memory.5FD5E3AB-588F-11D4-9BA9-005004532BEF-StyleName:SignoffBY BRETT MICHEL
