“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.
3 stars (Good Enough) Shot in beautiful black and white (mainly black) - it would not have worked in colour - with a soundtrack made to measure. The vampire genre has been thrashed to death but I think we can make room for this one.~tubbs
