upon a time, not so very long ago, on the outskirts of a small,
beautiful village called kromer there lived two 'wolves' called seth
and gabriel. they join the pack of wolves who have been cast out from
their family in a life of bonfire parties and survival via petty theft
and livestock munching. back in the village there are foul deeds afoot.
fanny, a wicked old maid, and her simple accomplice doreen kill their
mistress, frame the wolves and set a torch-bearing mob of religious
zealots to seek vengeance on the pair.
narrated by boy george, this fabulous modern-day fairy-tale from
england is beautifully shot and uses the lush countryside of england to
great effect. the witty transposition of homophobia to a small
village's virulent lycanthrophobia makes for a clever parable on the
scapegoating of same-sex couples. and for many, the two main wolves,
played by a couple of ex-models draped in nothing but fur coats and
raggedy jeans, will be worth the price of admission.
