They wait for her father to come home, meanwhile, her literally heartless uncle rules. He sells his soul for the aid of an enchanted wolf who turns himself human in order to spy. As the tyranical lord begins to see his niece as a threat, he sends the wolf to deal with her. Written by Max Vaughn

Get this movie, it will open your eyes to a world of wonder!
4 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

This movie tale brings to life the classic story in a way that makes it the best retelling of it I've ever seen. Music, a handsome wolf, and a depth of plot that is hardly ever seen in a story that was once so basic.

There are a bunch of great songs in this movie:

So good at being bad

You should never talk to strangers

Blue in the green

You won't be there in the morning

The man without a heart

My favorite quote:

"King: You don't love anything, do you?

Dagger: I love hunting with the pack under a full moon..I love a romantic dinner by candlelight..The two don't seem to go together do they?
