Movie Info

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 in captivity, Koani could only be a captive wolf. She could never roam wild nor could she be allowed to run free. For Bruce and Pat, despite all their efforts to provide for Koani's needs, they would have to face the painful truth that they could not provide for her greatest need - to be free. As she would prove time and time again, she was a wolf - and wolves belong in the wild. -- (C) Shadow


Critic Reviews for True Wolf

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

It's hard to get close to a wild creature, and "True Wolf" doesn't always manage, either.

August 17, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

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.

August 16, 2012 | Rating: 2/5

True Wolf is about responsible people seeking some middle ground in reintroducing wolves back into nature-not exactly the greatest story ever told.

Top Critic

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.

August 14, 2012 | Full Review…

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.

September 26, 2012 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

A tribute to a wolf who was raised by a loving couple to become an ambassador for her species.
