Dossier K.

Synopsis: 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.
Genre: Action, Crime, Drama

BLood is never unavenged

(Art. 917 of the Kanun)

Didn't your friend turn up?

Think, before you do this!

Think very carefully.

Are you scared?

Of course you're scared.

Of course you are.

You've got every reason to be scared.


- Linda.


- Linda.


- The victim'd come from the restaurant.

Any witnesses?

- No. They probably used silencers.


- Two weapons, different calibres.


- Not here or in the restaurant.

I've asked for the footage

from the approach roads.

Forensics have finished?

- Yes.


- I don't think so.

We've checked his passport,

his driver's licence. He's Italian.

A two-headed eagle is Albanian.

Alessandro del Piero. The Albanians

have certainly got a sense of humour.

Have I missed something?

- Put it this way. If that's del Piero,

they're gonna be a player short

at Juventus on Sunday.

They've turned him onto his stomach.

Give me a hand, Freddy.

Gently does it.

Commissioner, witnesses say the victim'd

drunk almost an entire bottle of water.

He was waiting for someone

before ordering.

Then he suddenly jumped up

and left without paying.

And the waiter didn't go after him?

- He thought he'd gone to the toilet.

After a whole bottle of water...

Have you got a minute, Commissioner?

- Yes, of course.

Right, Cassiers, good police work

means getting your priorities right.

So can you get some more peanuts?

A customer booked a table for

half past twelve but didn't turn up.

Vincke, a table for one?

It may be nothing

but I thought you should see it.

Yes, of course. That's good of you,

Linda. Take it away as evidence.

They've killed Dad.

Albanian clans, Vincke...

I don't know, I don't like it.

Those guys came straight from a war

and imported it into this country.

Why don't we dump the body

on Organised Crime?

You know who's in charge?

It lives in the sea

and is eaten with French fries.

Preferably in months with an R in them.

This time De Keyzer is welcome to it.

Right, what shall we do?

What's the plan?

What does anyone do if they want to

get somewhere in this world?

Fill up with petrol.

Not serving people, Binak?

With a smart car like that,

they usually pay with plastic.

Commissioner. Sir.

A good-looking guy. A relation?

A dead guy.

- Shame.

He's Albanian.

- An even greater shame.

D'you know him?

Or d'you know someone who might?

Listen, Tinky Winky.

My girlfriend works for

Trading Standards.

Maybe I should ask her if she's got time

to check the colour of your diesel?

Or the expiry date on your chocolate.

Bought in your shop this morning.

- It's still edible.

They have to put a date on it.

But there's a margin...

- I haven't got time for your crap.

Shehu. Prenk from the Shehu clan.

Try Prenk Shehu.

If a fly farts, Prenk Shehu hears it.


Ah, the law.

Welcome, gentlemen. Welcome.

I'd love to help you, Commissioner.

You know that. It'd be an honour.

But... you say

it's a revenge killing?

Are you sure he's Albanian?

- He had a ring with a two-headed eagle.

Everyone wears our eagle these days.

It's become fashionable.

It's a shame.

Its meaning is being lost.

He died on his stomach.

Is he from another clan, maybe?

The Gabas?

I don't know. There are so many

new people. And I don't get out much.

His killers turned him over

onto his stomach.

On his stomach or his back, so what?

Dead is dead.

The Kanun says

that's dying like a dog.

A dead person has to be on their back

so their soul can go up to heaven.

With a beech twig next to them.

- A beech twig?

What's the point of that?

- It's a mark of respect.
