Plot

The FBI is looking for a serial murderer, named Buffalo Bill. This manipulative serial killer is known for skinning the corpses of his female victims. To catch him, the FBI contacts Clarice Starling, a brilliant university graduate who is an expert in psychopathic behavior, and has aspirations to join the FBI. Following the instructions of her boss, Jack Crawford, Clarice visits the maximum security prison where the government keeps Hannibal Lecter locked away, a former psychoanalyst and serial murderer, endowed with higher than normal intelligence. Her mission is to try and gain information on the behavioural patterns of "Buffalo Bill" by seeking advice from Dr. Lecter. This critically acclaimed movie won five oscars in 1992.
