Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie are a pair of modern-day vampires on a desperate hunt for fresh blood to survive. The highlight of Tony Scott's stylish film is a hospital waiting room scene where Bowie succumbs to severely accelerated ageing.
A haunting tale of an eternal couple who suffer from an incessant desire for human flesh. A lovely scientist attempts to treat them, but soon becomes caught up in their sensual passions.

Comparing the 2004 DVD release against this 2015 issue there are some immediate noticeable differences where the DVD has three audio tracks English, French and Italian and the DVD also includes subtitles English for the hard of hearing, French, Italian, Dutch and Arabic the special features feature the original trailer a stills gallery and audio commentary from Tony Scott and Susan Sarandon, the Blu-ray release only features the trailer and audio commentary from Tony and Susan.
If you can find this at a reasonable price on import it is a worthy up-grade from the earlier DVD release.
Back in the 1980s I replaced most of my collection of 8mm movies with VHS and I have been going through a same process of upgrading to DVD for the last two or three years. This has given me the excuse to watch many films that I have not seen for some time and this stylish vampire movie from the great Tony Scott is one that I have recently revisited.
The film stars the fabulous Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie in a role that I believe to be one of his best performances as an actor, as vampires living in modern day (1983) New York, in a luxurious state of bored longevity, but even vampires do not live forever and the story plots the anguish as one of the partners begins to age and the other needs to find a new companion. The plot is unhurried but has sufficient momentum to keep the viewer interested and there are surprises and twists enough to please.
This is one of my favourites of the modern vampire genre and is probably the film which most influenced the development of the vampire cult movies and television series of the 1990s.
I should meet the true Miriam in person to learn everything from her. I admire the characters. It seems not so easy to live hunted and kill to survive. The night is so long, sometimes.
And don't want to be their victims, just to stare at em. Again. But in a movie, where everything is fiction, and the signs of their theet won't be on my neck.
Because it is so lively, so elegantly moving in the dark of her different being and living it all. Pity the end of the movie, but the book could save her.
