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...

It's great! I happened across it on youtube, and liked it so much I went and got the book and the dvd. The plot is interesting and the special effects are really pretty. The acting was quite good- I think people just misunderstand Agnes Bruckner's character. She's odd because she's a loup-garou (werewolf) and has only been allowed other werewolves for company. She's a good person but all the others are a bit murderous and indoctrinated by the pack mentality. She meets Aiden and he's obviously her soul-mate, but she's terrified of the consequences of her family finding out she is serious with this 'meat-boy', especially since she's promised to the (sexy but a bit preachy) pack leader.
The way they show the relationship between Vivian and Aiden is really nice, not disgustingly cheesy and out of place like some other reviewers suggest. It's tentative and sweet. Their love is much truer than in the book. They try to protect each other even as they're drawn more deeply into trouble, and really have you rooting for them.
There's also action, fighting and fantasy. I like the feel of the movie and the locations (it's set in Romania so everything's quite historic and beautiful).
PS- About the wolves being too 'fluffy and adorable'. They aren't the teddy bear CGI wolves that are in Twilight. They're just normal looking wolves. Beautiful but deadly. Better than the grotesque half-man-half-beast things in some other films. The loup-garou are shapeshifters, not monsters, so it makes sense for them to look like this. The transformations are gorgeous (not split second). They leap into the air and glow in colours like white/silver/gold, before the light streaks down and wolves land. There's a close up of Vivian's in slow motion. It's graceful and just awesome.
There were some plot holes (but what film doesn't have those) and slightly annoying that some things weren't explained (like why the cousin had a strange eye) but overall it's good.
Might want to avoid if you've read and love the book because nearly everything is different. If they'd changed the title and character names they wouldn't have had to buy the rights,it's that different!
P.S don't blame me if you end up with a crush on hugh dancy after ;)
