Le Pacte Des Loups


I found the film facinating, but in a sense frustrating. Being a student of history, I was impressed by the attention to historic detail in the Charleville muskets, costumes, and locations used during the filming. However, I cannot determine who the strange woman and the gypsy-lilke peoples were supposed to represent in the movie. From the beginning, the determination to defeat and humiliate the Mani character drives much of the plot, (one would assume that a group so involved in a conspiracy at levels of State Security would have been much more discrete, attacking only when the heroes "got too close") . I would greatly appreciate determining whether these obvious outcasts were meant to be "gypsies", or were a historically noted subculture of 18th century France.
