“It etches a sweet, sad and solemnly fatalistic love story between feeding times.”~Guy Lodge, Variety

Aroview: A languid and luscious Iranian immigrant take on the vampire myth set in the ghost-town of Bad City (filmed in California), where the remaining townspeople are unaware they are being stalked by a lonesome vampiress.

The black-and-white cinematography and Farsi language gives this a memorable and vital otherworldiness, even if it's a little too self-consciously infected with the retro-cool of Jim Jarmusch.
