Sometimes it takes a thief to catch a thief. Sometimes it takes a victim to catch an assailant. So the stylish thriller Gender Bias, a French-Belgian coproduction, suggests.
As a serial killer maims and murders transsexual prostitutes in Brussels, Bo (Robinson Stvenin) - a fetching trannie in vintage Chanel - hunts down the perp.
It's a tough job, thanks to the police lieutenant (Richard Bohringer) who fingers Bo herself as the self-hating killer. It's made tougher since apparently every man in Brussels thinks he's entitled to rough up transsexuals because of "false advertising." Toughest of all is Bo's neighbor and heartthrob Johnny (Stphane Metzger), who leads her on only to abuse her physically and verbally.
