Product Description

20-year-old Lena gets by as a petty thief on the streets of Berlin until she meets a gang of female vampires who live by their own rules and leave a merciless trail of blood in their wake. 

Before long Lena is bitten and immediately begins to revel in the glamour, parties and infinite freedom granted her by eternal life. However, this blessing comes with the curse of an endless blood thirst and murderous appetite that soon attracts unwanted police attention when the women attack a group of criminals.

I have to agree whole heartedly with the 5 star reviews on here. This is a terrific modern European vampire film, stylish, and well acted it briskly travels a well worn vampire story arc but is done with bags of style and panache. The score is also fantastic, where most modern vampire films usually opt for clichéd by the numbers nu-metal, we are the night combines European techno and dance by the likes of Soulwax and Covenant with a beautiful and evocative original score by Heiko Maile (who was apparently inspired by Hans Zimmer's score for The Dark Knight). If you like a good vampire yarn, I couldn't recommend this highly enough.

It's been awhile since I've watched a film with subtitles. The last one was the brilliant Swedish horror flick Let the Right One In. Wir Sind Die Nacht (We Are the Night) is equally enjoyable, but of a much different style and tone.

The movie opens with pictures of Berlin through the ages, and haunting, operatic music, beginning with modern day Berlin and moving backwards in time, to the Fall of the Berlin War, the Second World War and further into the past. The same women appear in photos throughout these historical eras. One of them can be seen in an oil painting, giving us an idea how old this lady is. An intriguing voice-over asks: "If you knew that there is only one person in the whole world who is able to make you happy. And he is the right one for you, what would you sacrifice to find him? How many centuries would you spend searching for him? And if you finally found him, would you ever let him go again?..."

Vampire boss Louise (Nina Hoss), her second in command Charlotte (Jennifer Ulrich) and the younger, fun-loving Nora (Anne Fischer) jump from a plane over Berlin having killed the passengers and crew. The next scene introduces us to the troubled Lena (Karoline Herfurth) who immediately reminded me of Lisbeth Salander from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. She picks the wrong guy to steal from, and ends up being pursued, in a highly enjoyable and exciting chase through the city by a cop, Tom (Max Riemelt - FYI, he's lovely ladies). You have to laugh at a cop who sees the funny side of being punched in the face and kicked in the groin by the thief he's chasing.

Lena has the bad luck to show up in Louise's vampire nightclub one night. She reminds Louise of her dead maker and the woman she loved, and Louise wastes no time in making her into a vampire.

Modern day Berlin.Centuries old Vampire Queen Bee Louise(the always excellent Nina Hoss)together with acolytes the moody Charlotte(Jennifer Ulrich)and mod tramp Nora(Anna Fischer)are cutting a dash through the underbelly of Berlin society feeding at will and having a high old time of it.However Louise has been seeking,for a long time it transpires,for the right replacement for her own mentor burned years before and thinks she's found her in the guise of petty street criminal Lena(Karoline Herfurth)who as convention dictates finds the transformation into a vampire somewhat problematic and things are not helped by an attraction to hotshot cop Tom(Max Riemelt)

Don't be put off by the trashy cover art,this is no bottom of the barrel straight to dvd fodder.Admittedly there is nothing particularly original here and the bravura opening 30 minutes is a little too fast paced if anything but all the women are ace(and I mean acting),the innate eroticism of the vampire lore is well conveyed and there are some clever touches(each characters backgrounds are stylishly sketched in in the opening credits sequence and Charlotte has two very well nuanced scenes -one when she is watching herself on film and another at a hospice which is strikingly touching and the action is well done throughout.

A pulsating soundtrack nicely underscores their decadent lifestyle and although it goes pretty much where you expect it to go,We Are The Night is superior fare.

The extras showcase two alternative endings and being a sucker for endgame clarity I wished they had used number 2 and the film is revealed to have been a long standing pet project between Christian Becker(producer)and Dennis Gansel(director)that took them over 10 years to get onto the big screen.
It was worth the wait.

Most Lesbian Vampire cinema serves the male gaze, We Are The Night is a little different. For a start, it's not as 'clothes off' as the usual sapphic bloodsucker offering, focusing instead on the twisted dynamics that exist between the characters. There's a family unit at the heart of the movie - four Vampire vixens who are not dissimilar to the women of Sex In The City, albeit with a thirst for blood. They treat eternal life with a hedonistic abandon and enjoy spreading chaos.

I can't recommend this film enough. It's from the same production house as Urban Explorers and it makes use of similar abandoned locations and unused urban squalor. Although it's tricky to make an original Vampire movie, We Are The Night brings some fresh ideas to the table.

In this 2010 German [with full English soundtrack option] vampire horror film petty thief, Lena, almost gets arrested by police officer, Tom, who takes an instant liking to her, but she escapes and ends up at a nightclub, gets bitten by a female vampire [one of a group of 3] and becomes part of their world when she kills a Russian Pimp. Tom investigates the murder case not knowing it involves the vampires but they live the high life and move on the edges of society. Can he track them down and what will happen when he meets Lena again?
There are a number of good features to the story that other films have ignored and this also illustrates some of the ‘real’ issues of being a vampire such as the consequences of immortality and how they get their ‘kicks’ and deal with ‘life’ when the moral restraints are removed. The thumping music in the club scenes, eerie sound track, combined with some stunning sunsets all create a remarkable atmosphere
The single disc opens to 3 trailers then goes to main menu offering play, scene selection, special features [making of, deleted scenes, alternate endings, video diary, behind VFX] and set up [german 5.1 or English 5.1, subtitles on’off].
With swearing, violence, drug abuse and covering themes of depression, self-harm and suicide it’s hardly surprising this is a 15 rating. Not your traditional Hollywood vampire love story, this gives it all a fresh view and is a worthy ***** if you want a darker edge to your vampire movies.
