Customer Review

on 27 March 2013
This has to be the best vampire-related film ever made, both glamerous and thought-provoking, with scenes that tug at the heartstrings until they threaten to break. All the actors - and actions - in this film are simply outstanding, from seasoned veterans like Nina Hoss and Arvid Birnbaum down to younger talents like Max Riemelt and Anna Fischer, although special plaudits have to go to Jennifer Ulrich as the bookish highbrow, Charlotte, evidently of French extraction, and to the overall prima donna of the film, Karoline Herfurth (who, incidentally, also appears in that excellent film 'The Reader'), who, as Lena, is seduced into becoming a vampire and fellow-traveller of the trio led by Luisa (played by Nina Hoss), thus establishing a quartet of female vamps who wreak havoc in pursuit of pleasure and in the interests of survival across Berlin. Some of the scenes are simply mind-blowing in their explosive effect, but overall I was most impressed by the romantic relationship which, despite all the odds, gradually develops between Tom, the young cop played by Riemelt, and Lena, who has to overcome her initial reluctance to become involved with someone who was on her trail and determined to book her for an offence unconnected with her subsequent induction into the female vampire sisterhood. This film, despite the gore and bloodshed (inevitable with such a genre), is simply outstanding in every way, and I heartily recommend it, not least for Arvid Birnbaum's role as the senior detective who reluctantly comes to terms with what his younger partner has become amorously involved with. See is you can detect Jochen Nickel, that veteran of films like 'Stalingrad' and 'Auf Herz und Nieren'.
