As we discussed the clip in class, we decided that the film is filled with tension and an element of magic. The music provides connections to the characters throughout the film. The main character, Phillipe, is currently acting as servant to the Captain, but rebels because while in prison he had respect and power. However, when a wolf appears, Phillipe looks to the Captain for help. Unable to find the Captain, Phillipe shows his courage by taking matters into his own hands. An air of mystery is created with what seems to be a relationship between a woman and a wolf. We also learn that when Philippe is troubled or has to make an important decision, he talks to God.
