Storyline

Wolves in the Snow begins with the news that Antoine has been cuckolding Lucie for years. A violent marital argument ensues resulting in Antoine's death. After lying about Antoine's whereabouts, Lucie discovers his secret life of gangsters, money laundering and violence. Followed, threatened and badgered by the gangsters, Lucie becomes trapped by her deceit. The body of Antoine disappears, other corpses appear, and the money, very quickly, becomes only the pretext of an alarming turn of events, in which Lucie learns how to lie, to live, and perhaps also to like. Wolves in the Snow is an intense drama set against the backdrop of Montreal. Written by Anonymous

Atmospheric indie thriller
9 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A most unusual movie: an unpredictable thriller. A naive but resourceful woman is caught up in a cat-and-mouse game with gangsters because of her husband's indiscretions with women and money. Fortunately for her, the mobsters underestimate her guile and resolve as she uses every weapon available - including her considerable charm - against them. Not an action piece but a twisty melodrama, reminiscent somewhat of classic noir, without the pretensions and absurdities of most neo-noir. Marie-Josée Croze is moody and beautiful as is the photography by Yves Belanger. Glad to see this fine Canadian movie available for general purchase now after being available in the States only via Film Movement. (I suppose now we'll see a remake with Ashley/Sandra/Meg Judd/Bullock/Ryan.)
