I have read some of the poor reviews for this film as I have not met anyone who does not love this film. I can see how as a fairly arty vampire film this could be quite intimidating to your common-ore garden Blockbuster goer. i.e. it really would not be for everyone. However, the movie has been critically acclaimed for very good reason.

I went to see the film knowing absolutely nothing about it or the book. The film is in effect a dark comedy set against the deliberately bland sub-societal existence of the people who inhabit a council estate in Sweden.

I first saw this film on a plane and loved it. Genuinely some of the best set design and cinematography that I have seen. Incredible colours and almost shadow-puppet action sequences. As a result I ordered on DVD and loved it even more than watching it in the back of a seat! Being a bit of a geek, I could think of no other film that I would rather own on Blu-Ray and was really pleased to find one on Amazon. Unfortunately for me, I did not realise that there was a region issue with Blu-Ray discs so when I recieved it from the USA, I was totally pee'd off that it did not play in my PS3. I can't understand why as they are all made by Sony - BUYER BEWARE!!!
