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.

The greatest movie "made-in Quebec"
25 February 2002 | by marie_claaude_doreSee all my reviews

Who said that a movie with a budget smaller than 10 millions $ can be excellent??? Le collectionneur is one of the greatest suspence have ever seen. There is a real story beneath the serial killer and the characters seems to be somebody who could live next door. The actors have done an amazing job, especially Luc Picard and Maude Guérin as Maud Graham (the detective). Better than many american movies I've seen.
