Le Pacte des loups (2001)|
The movies plot involves a secret society dedicated to increasing the Popes power over Louis XV and a conspiracy to play upon a local superstitous dread of the supernatural. A gratuitous reference to the Knights Templar by Marianne de Morangias (Émilie Dequenne) early in the film, and several camera shots of an ornamented fireplace have lead to this movies inclusion on lists of masonic references. When Captain Duhamel is interviewed and dismissed in Pierre-Jean Laffonts (Bernard Farcy) castle, the fireplace can be seen to display a carved centre swash or flourish which is clearly not a square and compasses.
