Storyline:

Dossier K. is the long anticipated successor to ‘The Alzheimer Case’ which won numerous awards and was sold to over 30 countries, among which the US (where it was released through Sony Picture Classics). This second film based on a novel by Jef Geeraerts is a dense European thriller about passion, betrayal, revenge, blind ambition and the inevitability of fate. Set against the realistic background of Albanian mafia in Antwerp, the story brings the main characters Erik Vincke and Freddy Verstuyft into a disastrous vortex from which no one seems to escape.

One review

  • I already had high expectations of this movie since it’s a sequel to the highly acclaimed Flemish movie “De zaak Alzheimer” (2003). Again you are presented with top of the line, Hollywood comparable style, music, camera shots and characters. The story is good, I assure you that you will be on the top of your chair throughout the whole movie! Nicely acted and with a story to back that up, this is just another entry from Belgium in the thriller genre in the recent years. They might be up to something over there. And it’s nice to see that they have the scriptwriting talent to match their acting generation. In my opinion, this sequel is not as good as the first movie, but it’s still worth a watch!
