The majority of this movie is more a coming-of-age drama from the point of view of an outsider getting left behind by the world. The wolf bite and subsequent transformation are only one thread in Teddy's life, as viewers get more than a glimpse into his difficulties at home, at work and in his love life. Anthony Bajon is electric as Teddy and sells the character's complex emotional state throughout. He is also the glue that holds many of the scenes together, as the supporting cast range from under-used to an archetype. The movie then takes a excessively jarring change in tone in the final third, which is so heavy that it doesn't feel like it is part of the same movie. However, I appreciate that the film chose to focus on the struggles of the man over the beast, and it is a decent watch overall.

Most of the better reviews are very accurate... this is quite a breath of fresh air in the werewolf genre. Sad and minimalist, with an all-too-brief glimpse of the sad creature. It could have been better in many ways, and the scenes of tragedy could use some tweaks... but all in all, not a bad way to spend 88 minutes.
