First-time feature filmmaker Milorad Krstic makes a stylish debut with the imaginatively animated “Ruben Brandt, Collector”—a heist movie like none you’ve ever seen before.
Ruben Brandt, a famous psychotherapist, suffers from terrible nightmares, and learns that the only way to prevent them is by stealing paintings from the world’s renowned museums and private collections. Accompanied by his four patients, Ruben and his band of thieves strike with great success: the Louvre, Tate, Uffizi, Hermitage, the Museum of Modern Art. “The Collector” quickly becomes the most wanted criminal in the world, chased by gangsters and detectives alike through a surreal, colorful and remarkable landscape drawn from real life and art history alike.
“If you love art, “Ruben Brandt, Collector” is a non-stop visual fest, from the first frame till the last.” —Arizona Republic
