Love is a most peculiar thing,
This review is from: We Are The Night [DVD] (DVD)
I would agree with the previous commentators who extolled this film. The reason for adding to their comments is to emphasise that not only is the film itself interesting because of the strong female leads, but also because the plot of the story deals with the most basic of human emotions — love. There is a tangle of interweaving love strands, not all to be expected from a vampire film, nor from the ‘lesbian’ epithet given to the film. Indeed the natures of these loves is quite well dramatised and therefore questioning. The vampire nature of the film allows obsession to be seen as being heightened over time alongside love lost, and also the vampire element brings out the self-satisfying and self-destructiveness of obsession. The opening sequence is reminiscent of telling a story as a backdrop to the titles seen as in Watchmen. And this brings me on to the excellent music that accompanies the film.
