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.

A special movie
15 March 2002 | by landypiceSee all my reviews

so I and my girlfriend saw this movie together and we found this story very original. Everybody can like this movie because it is not difficult to understand but it's different of other movie. This thriller is a good story of "Christine Brouillette" who write the book of this story and "Jean Baudin" who have made the movie. "Maude Graham" is a very original character play very well by "maude Guerin". This is a very good Quebec movie better than any American movie. So the story talk about hard subject like homosexual prostitute but is right. So the note for le collectionneur are 68%. thank you...
