Australia Diary 15 March 2002

We went to see a film from the French Film Festival which is on in Sydney at the moment. The films called 'The Brotherhood of the Wolf' (Le Pacte des Loups) and it is very, very bad. It's a shame really, the film's been a huge hit in France, everybody has been raving about it, but having seen it, I'm just left asking the question; why?

The film takes the true story of a beast that apparently lived in and around Lozere between 1764 and 1767. In that time, over 100 people, mainly women and children, were killed. The King offered a huge reward for the person who found and killed the beast. The film then tacks on 'Matrix'-esque filming, a Kung Foo trained American Indian, a plot that makes 'The Mummy' look like 'War and Peace' with the sound effects of 'Bad Taste' (Warning, gory pictures!).

This guy does a good job of expanding my overview!

Please feel free to have a lok at the official web site if you really want...
