  • Belgian movie “Het Vonnis” (“The Verdict”) is more than just entertainment. The first few minutes, during which the lead character sees everything he cares about shattered and destroyed, are very good. The director creates intensity with some creative aerial shots and fast focus changes. The courtroom scenes at the end are another highlight. Director Jan Verheyen chooses to muffle the sound of the judge reading the final verdict, but he shows in an indirect way if the suspect is guilty or not. The story is based on true events, what makes the movie more interesting to see. This film brought me more than I expected, and so I can recommend it!
