"a simple, pointed parable executed with considerable elan...wittily transposing homophobia to a small village's virulently lycanthrophobia ... it's surprising how pic does manage to engender genuine sympathy as well as a playful, raffish charm."

"quite possibly the most inventive, interesting and unique gay film I have seen in years... it's inventiveness, it's unique metaphors and it's wonderful actors and consummate direction will easily sway you to it's favors..."

"gould's feature debut is a lively, featherweight mock fairy tale that gently probes the fear and mistrust surrounding male homosexuality in polite english society... based on a play by screenwriter lambert, this festival crowd-pleaser concerns a pair of young, itinerant "wolves" who prowl the outskirts of tiny kromer, dine on the occasional sheep, and make the townspeople very nervous... strikingly original in concept, "the wolves of kromer" translates lambert's crude, deliciously wicked sense of humor into uproarious visuals... its easy charm and estimable humanism make it a pleasingly diverting fairy tale -- albeit one with bite."

"it is to director will gould's credit that this absurdist tale never collapses into silliness. furry tails and all, gould and a fine cast create a somber fable that effectively connects old world fears with present-day prejudices."

"taking up where neil jordan's the company of wolves (1984) leaves off... handsomely produced and cast, this british film will entertain fable lovers of all sexual persuasions."

"a clever british import from tyro will gould... the wolves of kromer has a droll, playful tone and nice performances..."

"with humour and pathos? director will gould's film adaptation of a play by charles lambert offers a creepy and clever wisp of a roald dahl-style fable"

"british import about disco-dancing outcast canines and a village's, um, lycanthrophobia... and yes, there's a young boy who thinks he might be a werewolf!... a surreal twist on an obvious lesson."
