Storyline

When the body of the executive of hockey Benoit Brisset is found on the billboard of the border of Quebec and Ontario, the jurisdiction of the crime is shared between the two police forces and detectives David Bouchard from Montreal and Martin Ward from Toronto are assigned to work together. With totally different styles, attitudes and languages, the reckless David and the ethical Martin join force to disclose the identity of the Tattoo Killer, a deranged serial-killer that is killing managers of hockey. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Did You Know?

Trivia

There are many references to real National Hockey League events used in the film, such as the Quebec Nordiques' relocation to Colorado, the Eric Lindros situation and the Pocklington deal. Although fictional names are used, these are obvious in-jokes for hockey fans. See more »

Goofs

The "Welcome to..." sign at a border is never right on the borderline. Each state/province/country has its own sign, a few meters/yards inside its own territory. A dead human body, half in each jurisdiction, would be on the ground, not draped over a sign. See more »

Lots of fun
19 August 2006 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

It's rare that a Canadian movie has people talking like this one. What other subjects than the so-called rivalry between Ontario and Québec could have made a better film? Add to that our national sports, hockey, and you've got a winner. It's a winner also because it's funny, especially the first half. The location where the first body is found is hilarious! Patrick Huard and Colm Feore are both doing an excellent job. They're supported by a great cast. I especially like Pierre Lebeau. That guy knows how to swear! Of course, it's full of clichés and stereotypes that the population from the two provinces (English and French) have of the other. But that's why it's so funny. I hope this film does very well at the box-office. My guess though is that people from outside Canada will not find it as interesting. But too bad! Seen in Toronto, at the Beach Cinemas, on August 18th, 2006.

79/100 (***)
