Temptation comes in many forms

From the producers of Underworld, Blood and Chocolate is another film set in the murky world of shape-shifting beasties in the night.

Ten years ago, in the remote mountains of Colorado, a young girl watched helplessly as her family was murdered by a pack of angry men for the secret they carried in their blood. Now, though she lives half a world away, Vivian Gandillon is still running. Living in relative safety in Bucharest, Vivian spends her days working at a chocolate shop and nights trawling the city's underground clubs, fending off the reckless antics of her cousin Rafe and his gang of delinquents he calls "The Five." Aiden Galvin is an artist researching Bucharest's ancient art and relics for his next graphic novel based on the mythology of the loup garoux--shapeshifters whose power to change effortlessly into the forms of both human and wolf was once considered holy among men.

Wrestling demons of his own, Aiden hopes to explore the inner lives of these outsiders that he believes were persecuted to extinction - labeled monsters, murderers, werewolves. What he doesn't know is that the loup garoux are not only very real, they're far from extinct. During a chance encounter in an abandoned church celebrating the loup garoux, Aiden unknowingly comes face-to-face with the real thing, Vivian. Others may have secrets but none as extraordinary as hers, for Vivian is among the last of her kind, leading a tenuous existence under the protection and control of Gabriel, the powerful and enigmatic leader of one of the last packs of loup garoux on earth.

After their brief exchange in the church, Aiden can't get Vivian out of his mind, nor can she forget him. He pursues her until she relents and begins to see him, but she can't bring herself to tell him the truth - and lives in fear of showing him what she really is. And what's worse: her future, and who she falls in love with, is already predetermined. To keep their kind from being hunted to extinction, Gabriel holds them to strict laws. One is that he must take a new bride every seven years, and Vivian has been prophesied to be his next...

 good film

Didn't know what to expect as sometimes films like this can be pretty bad but I was rather impressed with this one. Beautifully made and good pack chases. Story line wasn't bad similar to underworld but humans v loup garoux. Worth a watch I thought.

 Dont over look this one, it might just bight you

Fair enough, not horror most bloody, not an award winning performance from any of the actors, however, dont over look it.

I agree with the general feel of most of the ratings on here, it isnt the best, but the feel and style of the film wins through for me.

If you are a horror buff, esecially into werewolf films then dont over look this one, by it and keep it out proud in your DVD collection, again, it wont win any awards, but it is what it is, a fair horror werewolf movie.

 Dont waste your time!

Top 100 Books Reviewer

this film follows the main character of Vivian Gandillon who is a very mystic person and has the ability of shapeshifting into a wolf, as do all of her friends and family who now all live in Bucharest as they have been driven out of every other country by angry people wishing to destroy them, she meets with this guy Aiden who wished to explore the myth around these people, once they meet all carnage ensues, that is pretty much the whole story of this film, the acting effects and story are all terrible, im a fan of fantasy and films of this nature but after watching this i couldnt help but think what a waste of and hour and half this really was, which is a shame because i was really looking foward to watching this movie because it has the same producers as underworld which wasnt a great film but at leats enjoyable.

 Great

I thought there was a really good storyline, although some details need to be explained in more depth i think an overall winner for action, suspence and a little bit of romance. A good night in!
