Adil has done time and is now a petty crook on the streets of the Netherlands. He is happy to go robbing and stealing but at the same time wants a nice safe society for his family - especially his young brother who looks up to him. He also has another brother - who has made good for himself - but who is dying from cancer in hospital.

Well he gets involved in gangs, and other nefarious activities, whilst at the same time trying to develop a burgeoning kick boxing career. But as in all these types of films along the way loyalties will be tested and decisions will need to be made that will have consequences - one way or another and not always with pleasant outcomes.
Bit of Spoiler (not a big one) coming up!!
Filmed entirely in black and white this is quite a good film - that is on the face of it. However, and it is a big however there are quite a few `seen it before' moments. All films with boxing have a similar story line, so it is hardly a big reveal when you find out matches can be rigged (shocker). Also it's hard to feel empathy for the main character who is so willing to dish out violence and yet also be loving and caring for his own family - although I would add this is totally believable.

This then is violence, gang stuff, drugs, some sex and lots of bling all done in a gutter way with a monochrome setting. Some have commented that the use of `b and w' does nothing for the film, but I quite like it. Although aficionados of black and white noir will not be over impressed with some of the lighting. It is though a good film and some very fine performances. The lack of originality is the thing that drags down the rating for me.

Jim Taihuttu's film "Wolf" is a strange animal. Mostly dressed in the clothes of its forerunners, it tries to be the Netherlands' answer to "Raging Bull" (even being shot in B&W) but instead ends up as a mish-mash of derivative elements from just about every immigrant misfit/gangster/boxer movie ever made. Whilst individual performances are strong, with Marwen Kenzari's lead character (Majid) very convincing indeed, the hackneyed unfolding of events and the very predictability of Majid's downward spiral of self-destructiveness ultimately rob the film of much of its merit. Even the monochrome production feels like a mis-judgement, somehow smoothing over the very grit that I suspect it was intended to enhance.

The film is in a mix of languages, but principally Dutch with English subtitles, from which I could not help but think that a lot has gone missing in translation.

Overall, this film is hard to recommend unless you are really stuck for something to watch and you enjoy the sight of people out of control.

This movies was really disappointing. I know from the start when the closed-caption had no choice but to listen
to dubbed voices in English. The story itself was unimaginative. Really disappointing.
