Storyline

A wolf strives through the woods around an isolated German village. Jakob the young local police officer is onto him, but scents something more in the darkness. What he finds is a man, it seems, wild eyed, of wiry build, in a dress. He carries a katana, a Samurai sword. When the Samurai invites Jakob to follow him on his crusade towards the village, it becomes Jakob's mission to pursue the lunatic to end this wanton destruction. At the end of the night Jakob has experienced too much, is too far from whom he once was. Something hidden has been unleashed to meet the first rays of daylight. Written by Anonymous

A wolfish masterpiece !
7 July 2015 | by ilvminatvsSee all my reviews

I watch movies for my lifetime and i saw the biggest crap and really good ones, to masterpieces of filmmaking. Of course, taste is an individual thing. Sometimes, or mostly, you stumble over great things, something you did not expect. Like in this movie's case. Little village gay policeman has to catch a wolf, striving around the village. He "feeds" the wolf anonymously, to keep the creature away from town. Soon he mets a bizarre "homeless person", dressed like the killer from the 1st Silence of the lambs movie. There is a deeper meaning to this, because the policeman is gay, and the homeless one represents his sexual fantasy. I really do not want to say much about the plot, because the movie left me speechless several times. Damn, this is a good one. It is to me on the same level of coolness, like "Tears of kali", even beyond that. The movie runs nearly 80 minutes, get your copy and waste your time for the good. A super 7 out of 10.
