True Wolf is the story of a wolf called Koani. Koani, with the help of her human companions, became an ambassador for her species, traveling the country to help raise awareness about wolves. True Wolf is about Koani's life and journey; it is the tale of a wolf and the way she changed lives, most of all those of Pat Tucker and Bruce Weide. Koani and her humans, Pat and Bruce, presented 1,400 programs about wolves to 200,000 people. The film explores Bruce and Pat's relationship with Koani. Born

It's hard to get close to a wild creature, and "True Wolf" doesn't always manage, either.
Mr. Weide and Ms. Tucker are ill served by a director who reduces the anti-wolf lobby to caricature and the debates over reintroducing wolves to the Northern Rockies to grossly biased clips.
The movie amounts to a crude assembly of sincere testimony, somehow too long at 76 minutes and maybe actually a job for Werner Herzog instead.
Frustratingly shapeless and rather bewildering, True Wolf fumbles away interest in what by rights should be the fascinating tale of a Montana couple who raised a wild wolf alongside their dog.
A tribute to a wolf who was raised by a loving couple to become an ambassador for her species.
True Wolf is about responsible people seeking some middle ground in reintroducing wolves back into nature-not exactly the greatest story ever told.
True Wolf is ostensibly about a Montana couple's life with their adopted wolf, but the documentary's lack of cohesiveness fails to connect us to either the exigencies of that existence, or to the wolf.
The doc veers between repetitive and didactic pronouncements of a call to inaction and more affectionately told stories about Koani's life as an "ambassador wolf" on the elementary school circuit.
