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.

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.Read more ›
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.
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.
We Are The Night [DVD]
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.

I don't speak German, and reading English subtitles, is not my idea of enjoyment.
