Did You Know?

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.

Odd, odd, odd, but delightful fun., 29 October 2007
Author: reviewerinoimdbino from United States

Odd, odd, odd. It's a little like watching Ken Russell seen through a prism of Alain Resnais. And the "wolves" of the title are not exactly "wolves" and not exactly "werewolves." You'll see what I mean when you see their costumes. Being a wolf, or becoming a wolf through inborn genetic or infectious disease or "contact" is a metaphor for homosexuality. (No, I'm not dissing what I am and what you probably are--it's just part of the film's wackiness.) Once you see it's from a play by Charles Lambert, it all makes sense. But it beautifully translates to film.

I love the old lady, Fanny, who despite myriad lines and wrinkles on her tanned old face still retains the remains of great beauty. Hearing the actress adopt a cockney or regional accent, puckishly enunciating her saucy remarks, is a delight. (She also played the incredible beauty at the end of "The Da Vinci Code.") This film is also a satire of the class war, reminiscent of Mike Leigh's "High Hopes." Catch Polly, a member of the Biffen family, with her ludicrous "county" accent as she wears her quilted jacket and complains that the minister won't allow her dog Parsnip into church.

A delightful film, helped by the fantastic beauty of the English countryside and the fantastic beauty of the lead Gabriel, played by James Layton. A melange of humor, beauty, and oddness.
