#013: Brotherhood of the Wolf (2002 film)  
Brotherhood of the Wolf is a 2001 French film directed by Christophe Gans, starring Samuel Le Bihan, Vincent Cassel, Monica Bellucci, Émilie Dequenne and Mark Dacascos, and written by Gans and Stéphane Cabel. Its original French title is Le Pacte des loups, which literally means "the pact of the wolves."

The film is loosely based on the book L'Innocence des loups ("The Innocence of the Wolves"), by the French zoologist Michel Louis, a study about a real-life series of killings that took place in France in the 18th century and the famous legend around the Beast of Gévaudan. Parts of the film were shot at Château de Roquetaillade. Being a historical drama film, it has anachronistic martial arts fight sequences; it also contains elements of erotica, mystery, horror, politics, romance, and fantasy.

Oooo yay! Now I'll definitely move it up on my to-watch list. I've been on the fence about it.

Ah, then fence-sit no more! This was a keeper for me. it's a beautiful movie (visually), and the story is also quite nice.

I prefer the french-with-english-subtitles version, rather than the dubbed version. Just FYI. I watched it dubbed once - never again.
