Suffering from terrifying hallucinations and alarmingly frequent incidents of amnesia, Anna Heymes, the troubled wife of a French civil servant, finds it increasingly difficult to remember the face of her husband. In the meantime, as the third mutilated body of a Turkish woman emerges from the dark Parisian sewers, the young chief of the investigation, Paul Nerteaux, enlists the help of the dishonoured former detective, Jean-Louis Schiffer. Now, Schiffer's brutal methods, along with his profound experience, are Paul's last hope to shed light on this intricate case. Can they find who is behind the gruesome murders before it's too late?Written by
L'EMPIRE DES LOUPS is another intelligent, intense and very explosive thriller from the author Jean-Christophe Grangé who wrote also the first CRIMSON RIVERS. It kept me all the time guessing what came next and there were many puzzles to solve. Director Nahon made a great job and all the actors delivered a very solid performance. I hope there will be soon another one. I don't know why this movie is underrated on IMDb with actual 5.4 but I give with my wife a solid 7.5/10. If I compare the quality of this film with similar Hollywood thrillers then it's no doubt one of the best and a must see for all fans of this genre. I am a little disappointed why this excellent thriller didn't get enough attention at the theaters and even me discovered it accidentally in the film dates of Jean Reno.
