Woods Hole Film Festival
1 August 2008 | by JumeirahSee all my reviews

I was very eager to see this documentary - as it is a very engaging story. However, following this group of vain, falsely humble, offensively self indulgent members of the 21st Century DeWolf family it proved quickly disappointing.

For 86 minutes they grapple with the many wounds imposed upon them by the sins of their forefathers some 160+ years ago. It is a shame because this family of 18th and 19th Century 'Mayfair Witches" is historically interesting and extremely evil on a human level. That coupled with the wonderful title of the piece, "Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North" - it had all the elements of a top-notch documentary. Instead it was merely a bunch of tepid cry babies whining in unison, "me, me, me, me, me."

If there had been an objective director it might have been salvageable, but then the focus would have been on something bigger than them.
