Uomini e Lupi was released outside of Italy as Men and Wolves. Pedro Armendariz and Yves Montand star as a pair of courageous wolf-hunters in the Abruzzi region of Italy. When Montand returns to his village with a dog instead of a wolf, he is branded a coward. He redeems himself by teaming with Armendariz' wife Sylvia Magnano to kill the wolf who claims the life of her husband. It's a simple story, imbued with powerful visual dynamics by Giuseppe De Santis. Especially impressive is the climax, staged during a blinding snowstorm (it's the real thing, too!)
