Storyline

Once upon a time in the village of Kromer lived two beautiful young wolves. Cocksure Gabriel takes newcomer Seth under his paw and helps reconcile him to the vilification associated with being a wolf. They fall head-over-heels in puppy love, playing together around picturesque waterfalls, secluded woodlands, and moonlit lakes. One day a wicked old crone and her goofy sidekick kill their mistress, frame the wolves, and incite a torch-bearing mob of religious zealots to seek vengeance on the hapless pair. But who will live happily ever after? Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Gabriel: Surely they knew. Parents can always tell when one of their kids gonna turn out to be wolves.
Seth: I'd always suspected. I mean, Mom used to tell me to tuck my tail into my jeans, and Dad used to make jokes about boys like me. It's like they just hoped it would go away.
Gabriel: What happened?
Seth: It was a full moon.
[Gabriel responds unintelligibly]
Seth: I just couldn't help myself. Now, I locked the door, but they burst in and found me in all my glory: fur, tail, claws, the lot. I was holding a copy of Wolf Weekly.

Gay werewolves in love!
19 February 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie takes place in a small British town. Seth and Gabriel are gay, in love and are werewolves. Meanwhile the townspeople are out to kill them because they're "different".

In this movie the werewolves are (very obviously) a metaphor for gay men. In fact the two actors are always in human form even when they're wolves (this movie was made on a VERY low budget). They just wear fur, have long claws for fingernails and have tails (a big mistake--they look laughable).

As you can tell, this is one strange movie. It's well done, beautiful color and scenery and a lush music score. Also, some of the jokes are quite funny but there are plenty of groaners too. The message is also very pro-gay. Unfortunately, this movie doesn't always work.

The acting is bad (it's obvious they hired models, not actors) and this is a cute idea but it's stretched out to 70 minutes.

So, it has its moments (especially if you're gay) but doesn't work as a whole. Still, I recommend it. When it does work it's great!
