'The Wolf's Call/ Le Chant du loup': Release date, plot, cast, trailer, and everything else about the Netflix movie
After being at it for a while now, Netflix is finally bringing French auteur Antonin Baudry's 'The Wolf's Call' ('Le Chant du Loup') to the streaming service. After the Gerard Butler-starrer 'Hunter Killer' and Thomas Vinterberg’s 'Kursk', and 'Black Sea', the French have finally entered the game with 'The Wolf's Call' ('Le Chant du loup'), that follows a young man with exceptional hearing power at the heart of an apocalyptic scenario. Budgeted in the $23 million range, the French submarine thriller first premiered in France on January 17, 2019.
'The Wolf's Call' ('Le Chant du Loup') is set to come to Netflix on June 20, 2019.
A young man possesses the rare talent of being able to identify every sound he hears. Aboard a French nuclear submarine, everything depends on him - he is the "Golden Ear." His reputation for infallibility takes a knock after a mistake puts the lives of the whole crew in danger. His determination to win back his comrades' trust drags them into an even more dramatic situation. In the world of disinformation and nuclear deterrence, they find themselves caught in a crisis spiraling rapidly out of control.
Cast and creators
The French submarine thriller film stars Omar Sy ('Intouchables,' 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'), François Civil ('Who You Think I Am'), Mathieu Kassovitz ('The Bureau') and Reda Kateb ('Close Enemies'). The movie is directed by Antonin Baudry.
In the near future, a French submarine finds itself in a crisis. Among the crew are Commandant Grandchamp (played by Reda Kateb), second-in-command D'orsi (played by Omar Sy), and Chanteraide (played by François Civil), acoustic analyst and specialist in sonar detection. They extricate themselves from the crisis efficiently and unconventionally. Yet part of the operation remains shrouded in mystery: a sound which Chanteraide, the submarine's 'golden ear' (one who can detect and classify virtually any sound thanks to a particular training), was unable to identify. Obsessed by this "unclassifiable" sound which almost jeopardized the operation, and despite his subsequent temporary suspension, Chanteraide defies his superiors’ orders and decides to investigate. Amid high stake international tensions, guided by his almost poetic inspiration and intuition, Chanteraide will unwittingly participate in an even more dangerous dissuasive maneuver that will lead his country - and the rest of the world - to the brink of apocalypse.
