Storyline

The detective Maud Graham hides her sensibility behind the image of a strong and independant woman. She frequently offers her hospitality to a 16-year-old prostitute, Grégoire, a young man who became her friend. But when the teenager decides to invite a 12-year-old boy who is running away from home, Maud is near illegality. In addition, the detective has to deal with a serial killer who had already killed and mutilated many women. When she understands that the killer is very intelligent and organized, she elaborates a strategy to arrest him. There starts a dangerous game where the two teenagers that Graham is protecting will be implied. The killer is getting closer, revealing more and more of his madness.

Excellent thriller, poor DVD
24 August 2002 | by (Montreal, Quebec) – See all my reviews

The film The film itself is a very interesting approach to the thriller genre.

Just when I thought I had seen them all (psycho killer vs

detective), this film came to remind some can always improve

things. Instead of pure suspense/action, the film opens many sub- plots that brings an extra to the main plot and characters. It's a

must see for amateurs of the genre and fans of Luc Picard. Actors

are great as well as the filmography.

The DVD What really annoyed me was the DVD version itself. The film is

presented in an anamorphic (2:35:1) format. Wow. Oh, it's very

crisp. But the whole film is shrinked !! It is so annoying I couldn't

follow the story by times. Actors look small and fat, objects are all

deformed, the whole experience is ruined. This is a truly amateur- ish kind of mistake, one that cannot be explained coming from

Chrystal Films and a 5$million dollar production. Thank god I saw

it at the theater.

Bottom line If you wanna rent the film, it's better to rent the VHS. It won't be

distorted and shrinked. Extras on the 2nd disc are nice though.
