In this entertaining, fast-paced, animated thriller for adults, psychotherapist Ruben Brandt advises his criminally inclined patients to "possess your problems to conquer them." But, alas, Brandt has problems of his own. He suffers from terrible nightmares as the result of the subliminal messaging he received as a child. So his grateful patients decide to help him follow his own doctrine. Soon the good doctor becomes the ringleader of a gang responsible for the theft of 13 of the world's most famous paintings, each artfully removed from renowned museums and private collections such as the Louvre, Tate, Uffizi, Hermitage and MoMA. As "The Collector" becomes one of the world's most-wanted criminals, gangsters and private detectives are hot on his heels, including the hard-boiled art theft expert Mike Kowalski. Director Milorad Krstic's encyclopedic knowledge of art history and love for world cinema shines in every frame of this exciting hand-drawn film.
