Brotherhood of the Wolf

Synopsis: In 1765 something was stalking the mountains of central France. A 'beast' that pounced on humans and animals with terrible ferocity. Indeed they beast became so notorious that the King of France dispatched envoys to find out what was happening and to kill the creature. By the end, the Beast of Gevaudan had killed over 100 people, to this day, no one is entirely sure what it was, wolf? hyena? or something supernatural? Whatever it was, shepherds had the same life-expectancy as the red-suited guys in 'Star Trek'. The Beast is a popular myth in France, albeit one rooted firmly in reality; somewhat surprisingly it is little known to the outside world, and perhaps incredibly it has never been made into a movie. Until now... Based on the true story of the Beast of the Gevaudan that terrorized France in the mid-XVIIIth century, the movie aims to tell first and explain afterwards. In the first part, a special envoy of the King of France, altogether biologist, explorer and philosopher, arrives

Mylord, it's time, you have to leave.

They will have you arrested.

Bring me some candles,

i'm working late tonight.

But, mylord..

- And a glass of wine, as usual.

The world had no choice but to change...

.. but the revolution has become terror

and me myself will be taken with away.

The certainties make people blind

and mad.

They can tear their hearts apart

and make a beast of theirselves.

In the year 1764...

...the Beast appeared on our grounds

and made it his.

One year later it was known

far beyond our region...

...and people began to think nobody

could ever defeat it.

By his attacks the Gevaudan sunk

deeper and deeper into the darkness.


Who are you?

What did he do?

- He's a thief.

And she?

His daughter. A witch.

I healed their horses and they

refuse to pay.

Do not listen.

A word has no meaning here.

Are the horses healed?

- Yes.

Go on.

Welcome in the land of the Beast.

And watch out for wolf-traps.

Knight Gregoire de Fronsac...

...en the man called Mani were

hunters nor soldiers.

As taxidermist of the king..

...the Knight in Paris the

reputation of a freeminded and

...intellectual person.

The one who was following him.. his shadow was a stranger

nobody knew of.

When evening fell...

...they offered theirselves to

the castle of marquis Apcher...

...who gave them shelter as long as their

mission in Gevaudan would last.

Our people are not afraid of an

ordinairy wolf. The Beast is different.

It flees from men like it knows

it has to..

but it spares women nor children.

Have you seen it?

- No.

How do you know it's an

animal then?

Those who survived gave that


It's much bigger then a wolf

and it doesn't fear bullets.

I understand your scepticism.

I don't believe in monsters either...

...but i had a report made for


...of the crimes of the Beast.

You can judge yourself.

Grandfather said you were

fighting the English in Canada...

Yes. I went there to study

the animals and nature.

...but i came back hurt

and with the grade of captain.

I arranged a hospital for the

victims of the Beast.

In an old abbey.

A women from Lorciere.

She came back from a party

...when the Beast attacked her.

Help came. The Beast vanished...

...but it deformed her face...

Tell me, Knight,

how is Mr Buffon?

And how are things in Paris?

And The Innocent One?

Read about it already?

It is kind of late for philosophy.

You're right. How about the theatre?

Do you know actrices?

What are they performing this winter?

Put it right there.

People say she is curtuous.

I'm not sure if it's true,

but they offered their charmes.

Tell me.

With this your curiousity will be


Mercurius of France.

We only have the Post of Avignon.

I will show you the sleeping room.

He is sleeping over here.

- Good.

Goodnight, Knight.

It's not Versailles,

but the wine is good.

Fat as a pig...

Jackques has seen many wolves.

What attacked him, was not a wolf.

The snout was longer and

the teeth were like knifes.

If it's not a wolf, what is it then?

A devil.

- Knight.

The Beast attacked a women in



Don't worry Knight, nobody is



What are they doing here?

Son of a whore.

Goodday, captain.

Sir Marquis.

I greet you. But be careful.

There are traps everywhere.

This is Gregoire de Fronsac,

of the garden of the King.

He wants to see the body of this

unlucky soul.

With your permission ofcourse.

You treated my men merciless

I did not know they were acting

in your command.

They were not.

You did good and I apoligize.
