Storyline

The plot of the film revolves around a young submariner who has a unique hearing. He works as an acoustics and can recognize any sound. The fate of many people depends on his ability, and a mistake threatens the life of the entire crew of the submarine. Trying to regain the confidence of his comrades, he conducts his own investigation of military provocation. It put the whole world at risk of a nuclear apocalypse. Now the elite combat team has to do everything possible to prevent a world war. They need to do the almost impossible, since the main command order is not subject to cancellation.

Plausible, sonic, and incredibly scary
28 June 2019 | by jonathan-747-46162See all my reviews

Playing with nukes will eventually lead to disaster. We all know that, but who would have thought that the risks were still there, in the post-Cold War world? Le Chant du Loup exploits a very plausible scenario in which atomic war is still very much a possibility, due to built-in flaws in the system and, of course, the element of human error. Capitalising on that, it builds a suspenseful thriller that keeps you on edge all the way through. I'm especially fond of how the filmmakers are using SOUND as a storytelling device, not just for effect. This is certainly largely, ehrm, unchartered waters in the history of filmmaking, but this movie certainly shows what you can do by giving the symphony orchestra time off and instead propel the movie forward with the available space pn the soundtrack. This fits neatly into the story itself, which revolves around sonic analysis, and... go see and listen for yourselves. A few stars sadly taken off for some unnecessary errors, a sketchy romance that could have been developed further - beyond the "token woman in a male-dominated military movie" level - and a bit of a resorting to submarine movie clichés during the climax. Otherwise, it's well-spent time that should inspire sound designers as it should make the rest of us start asking questions about the handling of nukes around the world.
