Synopsis

When reporters verbally attacked Valeriya Gay Germanika, whom the Russian Film Academy eleven years ago titled the Discovery of the Year, at the presentation of her third full-length film at the Kinotavr Film Festival, she told them to drink less.

“The Wolf Wood” is a parable about fear; it is a story about the attitudes of a mother and daughter deprived of love, who temporarily find mutual understanding, rallied by fear before the story invented by the mother about a cannibalistic wolf. On a philosophical level it is a reflection on the lost purity of thoughts, which is the main condition for the harmony of human life, and yet another illustration of the proverb: “The sleep of reason produces monsters”.

“The Wolf Wood” is definitely not a horror film in the classical sense. We Estonians understand well why it is not – we have our own Kitzberg’s ‘Werewolf’ which can be made into ten similar films.
