Collector
23 February 2017 | by indiecinemamagazineSee all my reviews

The film "Collector" is the directorial debut of Alexey Krasovsky starring Konstantin Khabensky. The director has achieved the quite complicated task of creating a film with only one actor and using a single set.

The actor who plays the role of a debt collector created an impressive character whose different aspects of personality unfold and transform during the film. In the beginning he is depicted as a heartless manipulator and by the end we see another person, one longing for love and understanding. This transformation is convincing due to the work of Khabensky who was not afraid to tackle a role in a film which can be described as experimental.

This film is more than just one-man show due to the successful work of the a director and cinematographer who were able to create a mysterious atmosphere and a dynamic evolution of the plot. The movie is ambiguous, focuses on the personality of the protagonist and leaves room for thought.

An unexpected problem changes the collector's life and he is losing his so-called successful position and important friends. When he faces the trouble and suddenly becomes an outsider, he starts to feel human emotions; guilt, compassion and longing for true love and another life. But it is too late. His past haunts him and he is not capable of escaping it. The tragic end makes us feel sympathy towards the collector, no matter what he is punished for.
