The Body Collector

The Body Collector

The Body Collector is the dramatized true story of Dutch journalist Hans Knoop who discovered that powerful industrialist and art collector Pieter Menten had personally murdered Polish Jews during the war. Immensely wealthy and well connected, Menten denies the charges even as the evidence against him mounts. Combining elements of All the President’s Men and a gripping courtroom drama, the film follows the mild-mannered but steely and idealistic journalist as he searches for the facts while being stonewalled by bureaucrats, threatened by Menten, and undermined by a treacherous fellow reporter.
