Storyline

Joseph just broke up with his girlfriend and is not taking it very well. He thinks she is plotting against him with their mutual psychiatrist. His dog is missing and he suspects the people at work might be behind it. Then there is the unshakable guilt over his past. It just might all be bearable, somehow possible to live through, if it weren't for those damned 'monsters' that keep trying to kill him. Through an allegorical 'fable' that is told in parallel with Joseph's struggle, we are left to decide for ourselves in the end, who is the crow and who is the wolf., was someone out to get Joseph, was it a stroke of bad luck, or was it all in his head?

Quotes

Narrator: There once was a wolf named Lupold, who was black as coal... As thick as a tree trunk... And feared like death. He had teeth the size of carving knives, powerful claws of stone, and eyes that glowed like fat fire flies. He could smell your sweat before the first bead broke from your skin, he could hear your heart beat from miles away and he could see you even in the blackest of pitch.

Excellent Debut
20 June 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Fabled is an excellent debut film by newcomer Kirshenbaum. The plot is not very complex, but everything else seems to have been very well thought out. A lot of attention seemed to go in to the performances and subtleties.

Visually, it is striking for a small indie pic. Desmond, who I've only seen in Go, was great as the lead.

I like the way a lot was left up to interpretation. This is not a film for the intellectually challenged. If you're not paying attention you'll miss a lot of the little details, which are what makes this movie a cut above most.

The movie has great atmosphere and mood. I can't wait to see what this writer/director does next.
