De indringer - Frank van Mechelen

protagonista è Koen De Bouw, commissario in "The Memory of a Killer".
anche qui è bravissimo, in una storia che non molla un attimo, bambine scomparse, una comunità semimafiosa,  lui è l'intruso del titolo.
sarà una bellissima sorpresa, un film da leccarsi i baffi, da non perdere, promesso - Ismaele

A sus 40 años, Tom Vansant es médico de urgencias en un hospital de Bruselas. Él es divorciado y vive con Louise, su hija de 14 años. Su mundo se derrumba cuando Louise desaparece. Dieciocho meses más tarde, encontramos a Tom buscando desesperadamente rastros de su hija. Una noche encuentra, en un bar, a Charlotte, que, al parecer, se había escapado de su casa en momentos en que su hija desapareció. Tom cree que Charlotte sabe lo que le pasó a su hija. Pero Charlotte no quiere hablar de su pasado. En su búsqueda por averiguar por qué no quiere hacerlo, termina en un pequeño pueblo de Ardennes, donde se encuentra con un entorno hostil y nadie quiere ayudar a descubrir los acontecimientos ocurridos. Sin embargo, Tom va realizando descubrimientos sorprendentes que, uno tras otro, le ayudan a revelar el misterio. 

I've seen this movie in World Avant Premiere two days ago and it was great!! What else did you expect, with some of the best Belgian actors in it?! The story is built up slowly, but going on you will do some surprising discoveries - nothing is what it seems. In a little village in the Ardennen there are 4 clans/families and they don't like 'intruders' (='indringers') and when Tom (Koen De Bouw) arrives to find out where his daughter is, they're all watching him - the eyes are everywhere. What happened to his daughter? What does Charlotte know about her? How did they meet? All urgent questions that will find an answer eventually, after a hunt in the woods.

The Intruder is a strong Belgian drama. It has an air of mystery, a search for a missing girl – and the case opens up corruption and deceit, cover-up in a small Belgian community in the countryside.

The central character is a doctor who is devoted to his fourteen-year-old daughter whom he is bringing up by himself. She disappears and his world falls apart. Skilful at the hospital, he begins to make mistakes, act violently and spend his time, after being dismissed, searching the railway stations and other centres for his daughter.

The plot is complicated when he meets a young girl at the railway station who reacts to the photo of his daughter. He takes her home and wants her help – but is then arrested for taking home a minor. However, he has a friend in the police force who supports him. When he follows the girl to the village, with the friend of an old pensioner in a caravan, and the love of a teacher with whom he has a relationship, he begins to probe the deceits in the town, behaviour of parents, disappearances of children, sexual abuse – and official cover-up. During the hunting season, the doctor’s life is threatened by the local authorities and he uncovers a conspiracy.

The film is continually interesting, taking the audience into an enclosed community and exploring the universal values and fears and violence when such community turns in on itself…
