Badly Dubbed - The Wolf's Call review by DP

Spoiler Alert
19/02/2020

Disappointing that the version available for rent of this French film is badly dubbed into English using American accents. There is no option on the disc to play it in its native tongue. Unfortunately this totally ruined the suspense of the film for us as the mouths/ speech were always out of sync and too much of a distraction!

Thrilling submarine movie - The Wolf's Call review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
07/03/2020

Who’d have thought another cold war submarine movie could have anything new to say or be so exciting? Watch A Wolf’s Call and believe. Interleaving tension with action, the plot unusually pits good guys against good guys, toying with audience emotions. Add to that a kind of hero we haven’t seen before – an Acoustic Warfare Analyst. This leads to some riveting stuff about sound recognition and a detective story in sound, on land as well as undersea.

Unfortunately the film is only available from Cinema Paradiso in the dubbed-for-dummies version of the original French, which somewhat diminishes its authenticity and realism, but it remains an exciting watch even in this format. WARNING: avoid the spoiler-filled trailer.

Technically accurate thriller, shame it's not in French. - The Wolf's Call review by Martyn

Spoiler Alert
25/06/2020

I uses to work on software for submarines, and appreciated the depiction of 'acoustic warfare'. Would give it 4 stars, but I also like to hear French, and, inexplicably, that is not an option in this French film, so only 3 stars.
