I’ve re-watched this movie countless times, and I’ll probably watch it many more times. It is flawed and tries to be too many things, but it’s so atmospheric and oozing with style that somehow it works. I love Monica Bellucci’s character in this. She’s a badass and a strong female character in a time when such characters were few and far between. If you know the history of the Beast of Gevaudan, you’ll know that the film plays with one of the popular theories surrounding the legend. It seems silly to say this, but this film had a strong influence on my aesthetic preferences growing up.
