Le chant du loup (2019)
I love submarine flics and French movies, so this was a real treat for me...It kept me glued to my chair for all of its running time, never relying in bombastic explosions and tiring CGI, monsters, aliens or bulletproof heroes (and believe me, although I'm a female and not exactly a teenager, I do enjoy this kind of flicks like the next guy)...Le Chant du Loup is a simple, yet complex story, with solid acting and compelling narrative and a strong reminiscence of the great classics of the genre. Loved it.
I really wanted to like it....
As a fan of the genre and an Argentinian myself, I was excited with the release of this movie.
I couln't be more wrong. While the premise itself is somewhat innovative and fresh, the execution is not. The plot is all over the place; it's a boilerplate of every cliché in the history of horror movies (Pet Sematary, Red Lights, and every B-movie in the genre). The director seemed to have many ideas and decided to put them all in, but without any connection or logic. The acting is surprisingly bad, dialogue is stilted and odd (we Argentinians do not speak like the folks in this movie!). I was glad that the version I watched had english subtitles or I wouldn't have been able to understand much of the dialogues. Situations happen nonsensically and sometimes they are unintentionally funny (which is not a good sign in a horror movie). It had potential and some original-ish ideas, but the director squandered it all with stupid decisions and twists that are not even twists, just a mess with no explanation or logical closure.
