"It is a short film about her time in America. The film is interrupted by short sequences about her concerts and the rehearsals. The wolfs are not the main aspects of the film. They play only a short part in the film. They have nearly five minutes to justify the title. It is the same problem as it is shown by the media. Helene Grimaud is the one with the wolfs. But no one really cares about the wolfs. It is an attraction to make her public. For the connoisseur it is a matter of marketing only. It is her music what makes her really attractive. You can see a few snaps of the second Rachmaninov concert and Brahms and Beethoven too. It is a good video to promote a concert tour. But for me it is a minor attraction. What I miss is a concert at the end of the film. This was a good possibility to give the viewer a chance to have a goody with the DVD. But this wasn't in the view of the production team."
