* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: The Beast of Gevaudan is the name given to a man-eating wolf-like creature that terrorized the the province of Gevaudan from 1764 to 1767. Suffice to say, the director and the screenplay writers took plenty of liberties with the story. [[spoiler: Also, the real Marquis a'Apcher survived the French Revolution and died in 1798.]]
** Interestingly, some modern investigations have theorized that the Beast might have been a non-autochthonous animal (maybe even a [[spoiler:big cat]] as portrayed) controlled by men with a unknown purpose, so the film could be more realistic than it looks.

** Most historians consider that the Morangiès family wasn't involved in the Beast's attacks in any way.

* TookALevelInBadass: Fronsac after [[spoiler: Mani is killed]]. Or at least, it seems that way from the point of the view of the rest of the characters, since up until then Fronsac had been content to let Mani handle badass duty. It turns out he was just as Badass as Mani all along, [[UpToEleven if not more so]], and when properly motivated he [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge plows a path of utter destruction]] that makes a viewer wonder why he even kept Mani around at all.

However, in the deleted scenes, the first fight segment (Mani vs the villagers with staffs), Fronsac tags in later, and finally the two fight together.

* DeadpanSnarker: one of the first thing's we're told about Fronsac is that he's "a wit," which he lives up to especially when flirting with Marianne (who herself can give as well as she gets).



* {{Werewolf}}: Not really, but the Gevadaun myth is so often associated with werewolves that the movie must at least play with this trope in passing.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:The villains of the piece are killed and their plot is thwarted, but the heroes don't fare much better. Mani's dead; the much feared beast was just an innocent animal who was forced to slaughter people by its sadistic owner, and Fronsac has to MercyKill it; the Marquis d'Apcher - one of the few decent people in this whole thing - is recalling the story as he's about to be sent to the guillotine; and all he can do is hope that Fronsac and Marianne got their happily ever after. At least they seem to have got it.]]

Fronsac and Mani are quickly enlisted to hunt down the beast and study it. Along the way, they encounter a mysterious group of gypsies and a number of French aristocrats who may or may not be behind the beast's attacks. Vincent Cassel plays a one-armed hunting enthusiast who also takes an interest in the beast. Creator/MonicaBellucci also stars as a seductive Italian prostitute who is far more than she seems.
