Eight children from Gross Rosen concentration camp find a provisional hiding place in an abandoned orphanage nearby, lost among forests. All of a sudden idyllic atmosphere of peace and quietness is interrupted. In the surrounding forests wolfhounds are circling. Wolfhounds - taught and used to kill prisoners - surrounded young heroes in the orphanage. All the attempts of escaping the place are failing, but the real danger lurks inside the palace.
WW2: a group of children liberated from a concentration camp find themselves stranded, surrounded by vicious attack dogs.
Cast: Kamil Polnsiak, Nicolas Przygoda, Sonia Mietelica, Danuta Stenka
I went into this movie fully expecting a mean-spirited piece of pulp. Instead I was treated to a dark yet hopeful story about survival, trauma, community, forgiveness, and redemption. Maybe more of a dark drama than a full-on horror movie, but brilliant and worthy of Shudder all the same. Sometimes you never know what you're gonna get from a movie. In this case, it's a pleasant surprise!
Bleak, as you’d expect- with the occasional glimpse of light. Can’t even imagine what these traumatized, rudderless kids went through. It’s not a werewolf movie, the wolves are metaphorical. Bonus impressive doggie stunt work. Highly recommended!
Very good movie !!!
Excellent depiction on humanity / survival. Definitely enjoyed the sense of terror both from the animals and the humans in regards to their thoughts, actions and behavior.
