The Brotherhood off the Wolf

in extreme HD


Scoop's notes:

This film looks spectacular. It has been compared to Crouching Tiger, and not without justification. It maintains a creepy atmosphere throughout. You might say it has the look and feel of a masterpiece.

So why isn't it a masterpiece?

One critic put it succinctly:

"If you see one French costume drama martial arts werewolf secret society romance this year, make sure this is it."

In other words, it's just too gimmicky. The critic above even left out one gimmick - the Mohawk Indian shaman from Quebec who is in touch with the elemental forces of nature, and can converse with the trees. These are European trees, but they were able to understand him, even though he spoke "tree" with a strong North American accent, often stressing the wrong leaf.

Oh, yeah - and the actual beast - an ugly Muppet created by Jim Henson's people - looks like a large porcupine covered with rubber bands.

But, all things considered, I have to admit that this film is the Citizen Kane of pre-revolutionary French, secret society, tree-talkin', kung-fu, giant ugly Muppet soap operas.

The Region 1 DVD in the States offers thirty five minutes of deleted scenes with director's commentary (actually, very interesting stuff, and unlike the Canadian DVD, subtitled in English). One interesting detail in the director's commentary about the deleted scenes: the shepherdess who is killed when rescuing her lamb is the same woman whose body is found earlier in the film. The director needed to postpone the attack scene until later in the film, but needed a corpse earlier, so he split the scene up, hoping that nobody would notice that it was the same woman, seemingly restored to life!
