Brotherhood of the Wolf

Blaine Kyllo

Brotherhood of the Wolf, the highest grossing film in the history of French cinema, is a surprise. I thought it was going to be a werewolf movie, which would have been fine, but it is an action-packed tale of political intrigue set during the reign of Louis XV. It’s an interesting and accomplished film that defies categorization, with unlikely heroes: a French naturalist and his Canadian Mohawk blood brother, who has moves that would keep Jackie Chan busy. The only thing that compromised my viewing pleasure was that I had to suffer through an English dub. I much prefer subtitles, which allow me to comprehend the dialogue while hearing the real thing.
