Reviews

Based on the novel by Annette Curtis Klause and set in modern-day Bucharest, this werewolf tale stars Agnes Bruckner as Vivian Gandillon, a beautiful young woman with lycanthropic origins who becomes torn between honouring her family's ancient secret and her burgeoning love for American artist Aiden (Hugh Dancy). Vivian has spent her entire life running from the truth - but now a string of accidental murders threatens to rip her pack apart and expose her dark secret to the man she loves...

Format:DVD
I have read the original book by Annette Curtis Klause and it was fantastic I could not put it down so I was itching with anticipation for the film. The film was very good and I did enjoy it but I think that other than the character names and a few insights during the film it bares very little comparison to the book. I understand that a certain amount of artistic licence is needed to squash a book into an hour and a half but was it necessary to change SO much? Even Vivian's relationship with her Mother (who in the film is actually her Aunt) the fact that Vivian is `prophesised' to take the loup-garoux into a new future (Where was that in the book?)

The Blood and Chocolate theme was supposed to be the two lovers in Vivian's life - Gabriel and Aiden. Aiden was the "chocolate" that Vivian liked. Gabriel was the "blood" that Vivian craved, wanted, and searched for. I felt this book was a coming of age story, about a young lost and confused girl who was running from her true self because it frightened and ashamed her but eventually she comes to accept who she is and is proud of this, she also discovers Gabriel is who she needs and wants. The film didn't convey this at all and made it a `goodies and badies' theme which made the story kind of average and therefore did not stand out like the book or have me completely engrossed like the original story did

Like I said as a film it was great I just wish they had not called it Blood and Chocolate or based it on the book as it bares absolutely no comparison to the one I read

3.0 out of 5 stars Well acted 6 July 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have not read the book yet, but I enjoyed the film, although for the first ten minutes I did think it was just going to be Buffy with werewolves. Aiden is well written and well acted - he is inept and daft, but with just enough brain and backbone to keep one from wanting to kick him. He runs when he should run - at least when he still has that choice. Some of the plot devices are a wee bit OTT, and although the effects where they change from people to wolves are a bit cheesy in this day of realistic CGI, I do like that fact they used real wolves, and I and my boyfriend thought it was a simple effect done well.
Olivier Martinez underplays Gabriel nicely, Hugh Dancy sparkles as usual, and Agnes Bruckner was suitably sullen as the young woman torn between them.
It's a nice, easy watch, and worth the fiver I paid for it, lol.I gave it three stars for it not being long and involved enough.
I was left wondering, though, what the hell chocolate had to do with the film ! Having read the other reviews here, I get why it's called that.....so I'm going to buy the book.....

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable 22 Jun 2007
By leela
Format:DVD
I thought I'd write this as the 2 already on here didn't really help me when I was deciding whether or not to watch this.

Overall, if you're in to supernatural films/tv/books I'd rent/buy this, its a enjoyable enough film with a good story line and the acting is good in it. The special effects could have been better but this didnt detract from what was an entertaining film.

If you're a fan of Underworld or have read the book this is based on (or indeed if you're a fan of the likes of Kelley Armstrong) then go for it - you won't be blown away but I don't think it deserved the harshness of the 1st review!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not 'arf bad! 30 July 2007
By Lucy Felthouse TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
As a fan of the whole fairy-tale come/genre, I was 'recommended' this on Amazon so thought I'd give it a try, despite the poor reviews. And I have to say it wasn't half bad.

The tale revolves around a young woman called Vivian (Agnes Bruckner) whose family were brutally murdered at their home in the Rocky Mountains when she was a child. She has been brought up ever since by her aunt and now lives in Bucharest. We find out early on that Vivian belongs to a pack of "loup garoux" - she has the ability to change into a wolf at will. Unlike werewolves, the loup garoux can control when they change into their furry counterparts.

By day, Vivian works in a chocolate shop. By night, she prowls around Bucharest and does her best to ignore the treatment she receives at the hands of her cousin Rafe (Bryan Dick). He teases her about her betrothal to the leader of their pack; Gabriel (Olivier Martinez). Their leader must take a new wife every seven years, and Vivian is tipped to be the next one, however reluctant she may be.

Different to the rest of the pack, Vivian has sworn never to kill a human, and she spends much of her time alone. A chance meeting in a church changes her life forever. She meets the artist Aidan (Hugh Dancy), who has a fascination with the legendary loup garoux, and knows a great deal about them... except that they aren't extinct, or indeed, that the girl he lusts after is one of them.

Knowing the dangers, Vivian ignores and avoids Aidan, but he pursues her, until eventually she relents. They begin an illicit relationship, meeting in secret, away from the prying eyes of her family. Inevitably the rest of the pack find out what is going on, and fearing their secret will be exposed, they must take drastic action.

3.0 out of 5 stars O....k But Wouldn't Reccomend It 30 Oct 2007
Format:DVD
This isn't the best film in the world but it does have some aspects that make it a very interesting movie. The transition from human to loup garoe is not the normal way you would expect it and it is not the convential werewolf story with the werewolves not turning into wolfves with the full moon but when they want to. This is also mixed up with a tragic love story between the sworn enimies the loup garous and humans. The ways that make it bad is that it is a very dark film and sometimes the acting seems a little far feched even for a movie like this and there are very little horror aspects to it so if you are a fan of horror it is not really the film for you.
