The French submarine thriller The Wolf’s Call (Le Chant du loup) hit Netflix this month, and you’d be right to assume that it’s at the top of our must-watch list.
Saar Klein edited the tense, subaquatic nail-biter, from writer-director Antonin Baudry, weaving together a narrative that’s packed with twists and turns from the moment the opening credits hit the screen.
Set in the near future where the threat of a nuclear crisis looms, The Wolf’s Call is the story of a gifted sonar technician suddenly thrust into the position of aiding the French military to avoid nuclear apocalypse by using his “golden ear.” Klein builds the story of The Wolf’s Call in constant peaks, bringing the audience to gripping, edge-of-their-seat tension.
