5.0 out of 5 stars Slow but excellent vampire film, 10 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thirst [DVD] [2009] (DVD)
starring Song Kang-Ho Shin Ha-Kyun and Kim Ok-Vin this film is around 128 minutes long in wide screen. What sets the Far eastern films apart from the Hollywood film industry is that Korea Japan and China film all tell a story with far more restraint than either Hollywood or Bollywood. The film is about a priest who only wants to do good in the community so volunteers for clinical trials at a clinic where there is a 100% fatal virus. The infection sets in and he is given a blood transfusion that turns him into a vampire. He is conflicted by the change and to keep the virus from returning and killing him he has to drink blood regularly. He finally resolves this dilemma by drinking the blood of a coma patient in the hospital he is working. He plays Mahjong with a group of friends and he fancies the wife of one and they begin an affair as she is trapped in a boring loveless relationship with a bland wifebeater. She too is infected after a steamy romp where he bites her but where the priest is rather weak she takes to her new life with gusto.

the lead actress is utterly brilliant here and also gorgeous too and she could bite me anyday. The film actually humanises vampires in a way as it is a radical change from the normal life the inflicted once had and must affect them in ways that would cause mental and physical conflict, this is what this film also explores as a sub context in the film. Wait for the end of the film where the priest finally resolves his and his girlfriends situation. A thoughtful and thought provoking film well worth the purchase.
