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

Exceptional Canadian Thriller
13 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This Canadian French language thriller is one of the best thrillers I've seen lately. The first 20 minutes or so had me absolutely glued to the television. A husband and wife (Antonie and Lucie) have a terrible argument which results in Lucie smashing Antonie's skull and killing him, and hiding him in the bathtub. Scared and not knowing what to do, she takes off in her car. Meanwhile, a gangster (Ruben) shows up at their apartment looking for Antonie because he owes a big time gangster some money he stole. Ruben finds Antonie dead, and waits for Lucie to return. When she does, and Ruben knocks on the door, all he asks is if Antonie is home. Lucie says no, and Ruben tells her dangerous men are looking for him because he stole some money. Lucie then reports her husband to the police as missing. The soundtrack to this movie is captivating and never stops pounding throughout the movie, I would love to own the soundtrack. Ruben's boss Marco, gets on the case now and thinks Ruben has killed Antonie and took the money, and trusts Lucie's story that tells him that. This movie takes a lot of twists and turns, as Lucie continually makes bad decisions that somehow always work out for her. Meanwhile, Lucie shoots Ruben, but then takes him back to her apartment and gets a doctor who takes care of the wound, as she realizes Ruben is trying to help her. All this time, the manic gangster Marco is tracking them down for a deadly confrontation. This is a truly great twisty thriller from one time director Welterlin and deserves to be seen. It was a real roller-coaster ride for me, and I couldn't recommend it any higher.
