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.

Good Canadian Thriller
2 May 2005 | by Claudio CarvalhoSee all my reviews

In Quebec, a serial killer kills, rapes and takes parts of his victims in this sequence. The Detective Maude Graham (Maude Guérin), a lonely woman and very efficient detective, is in charge of the investigation. She uses the media to tease the criminal, and acts like a bait to find the unknown assassin. "Le Collectionneur" is a good Canadian thriller. The story and the characters are very well constructed, and Luc Picard is excellent in the role of a deranged serial killer. I regret only that the VHS distributed in Brazil is (horribly) dubbed in English. I do not understand why the distributor spoils many films with dubbed copies. They claim that there are many illiterate people, who do not know or have difficulties to read the subtitles, but anyway speaking is part of the acting and therefore is unacceptable such a procedure of dubbing the original language. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "O Colecionador" ("The Collector")
