Nightmarish study of pedophilia and politics
I remember the impact of the uncovering of a pedophile ring in Belgium a few years ago on the people of that country. I think the government fell over this blend of perversion and official coverup. Handwerker's film evokes the feeling of desperation you get when your efforts to do good are blocked; the examining magistrate tries to kill himself when he runs into a stonewall from the police and judiciary.

Anne Coesens gives a fine performance as the young woman who had been kidnapped and raped by the man who supplied children to the ring, and who discovers the identity of her rapist several years later.
