Just one DVD recommendation this week. Just a calm before the storm though. Don’t you worry.
We Are the Night
Lena (Karoline Herfurth, Perfume: Story of a Murderer) is a troubled young woman from the wrong part of town. Antisocial and self destructive, Lena is caught in a dead end life until she meets Louise. Beautiful and glamorous, Louise is everything Lena is not and Lena cannot help but be flattered by her attention and the promise of a new life and family. A life of power and excitement. A life that will never, ever end. Fresh from the success of his internationally acclaimed The Wave, director Dennis Gansel delivers a darkly sexy spin on the vampire mythos, one where glamour and power come with a price not noticed until it is far too late. http://www.ifcfilms.com/films/we-are-the-night
I’m fairly annoyed that I can’t find a trailer with subtitles instead of questionable dubbing for this German vampire film, but fashion, excess, blood… you get the idea. Although it’s unlikely to bring anything new to the table, the glossy We Are the Night is one for fans of the sexy bloodsucker.
