Ruben Brandt, a famous psychotherapist, is forced to steal 13 paintings from world-renowned museums and private collections to prevent his suffering from terrible nightmares. Accompanied by four of his patients, he and his gang of thieves strike regularly and with great success: The Louvre, Tate, Uffizi, Hermitage, MoMA.
’The Collector’ quickly becomes the most wanted criminal. Gangsters and headhunters chase him around the world while the reward for his capture keeps rising, approaching a hundred million dollars. A cartel of insurance companies entrusts Mike Kowalski, a private detective and leading art theft expert, to solve the case.
The film is not only a wonderful, surprising work, it is also a real triumph of the senses. This is an animation with an original, unique aesthetic and a conceptual philosophy that will leave its mark, one that from now on cannot be disregarded for an intelligent, pure, genuine entertainment.
