The Memory of a Killer | 2005
Angelo Ledda is an international hitman who has been hired to terminate two people in Belgium. Unknown to those around him, Ledda has advanced symptoms of Alzheimer's, and this double murder will likely be his last. Upon his arrival in Belgium, Ledda quickly finishes the first part of the job: he eliminates a high-profile official Bob Van Camp, leading Detectives Eric Vincke and Freddy Verstuyft to investigate the murder. When Ledda realizes that his second target is a twelve-year-old girl, he breaks his contract. Ledda, a victim of abuse as a child, makes it his mission to find out who wanted the young girl dead. Ledda's boss, Gilles, finishes the job. While in Belgium, Gilles lays a trap for Ledda, who ultimately turns the situation to his advantage and eliminates Gilles. Furious over the attempt on his life, Ledda turns against his clients. Seynaeve, the middleman in the hired killings, is his first victim. While Vincke and Verstufyt are busy investigating Ledda's case, Ledda strikes again: assassinating the son of his client, Minister of State Baron de Haeck. Consequently, Ledda leads Vincke into a cat and mouse game as he continues his mission of revenge. And to their growing dismay, Vincke and Verstuyft begin to see the connection between the murders and political intrigue.
