I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it was included in the ‘1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die’ list, I was really eager to check it out. To be honest, I have to admit that I had a rather hard time to get into this movie. Maybe it had to do with the fact that it was very late when I watched it so I might re-watch it at some point. Well, even though Carl Theodor... read more

(YT) Complex, experimental, delicate; and follows a good tale. The point of view stylization, sweet fatality of vampirism, redeemed at the end, following the book, acted by an enthusiast, is the clue. Expressionism and impressionism copulate.

1001 Movies ... my own version (1930's) (59 movies items)

" Notes: Even though Carl Theodor Dreyer himself was Danish, this movie really felt like it belonged to the German expressionism. It was also pretty obvious that it was produced at the end of the silent movies era as there were very few sounds and dialogues and most of the story was told through some (rather massive) cards with caption and some whole pages of a book dealing with vampires. I don’t know, maybe the damned thing was too random for my taste but there is no doubt that the atmosphere"

The soundtrack alludes to acts that remain unseen, such as the baying of wolves and crying of children, and plot points are frequently intro"
