The Verdict (2013)
aka Het Vonnis
First screened in October 2013
Director: Jan Verheyen. Cast: Koen De Bouw, Johan Leysen, Hendrik Aerts, Jo De Meyere, Chris Lomme, Veerle Baetens. Screenplay: Jan Verheyen.

Twitter Capsule: Gripping premise and opening undone by multiple failures of direction: padded scenes, arbitrary shots, botched ending.

VOR:   Pure narrative machinery—which doesn't take away from the strongest passages, but as cinema, they're not news.
