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

The phone-in radio show heard (and seen) at the beginning was hosted by Ron Fournier. Fournier hosts a radio show on CKAC 730AM called "Bonsoir les sportifs!" ("Good Evening Sports Fans"). He is well known for his colorful take on the world of sports and hockey in particular, and is also known to be very flamboyant in his comments and responses to callers. See more »
At the Ontario/Quebec provincial line, as Bouchard is walking away and Ward is speaking to him from behind, Ward's position changes between camera shots, although he's depicted as standing still. See more »

Because the dialogue is half English, half French, both versions shared the same soundtrack. The only difference is in the subtitles: in the French version, English dialogue was subtitled, and in the English version, it was the French dialogue. See more »
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.
