Review

A little bit of life in the vampire community; their pain, their internal feuds, their ways of passing the time. Trouble is, they turn out to be just like the rest of us, only a little bloodier. Eternal life is a boon to some, torment for others; some feel guilty about the way they treat other creatures (us!); others rejoice in the vampire equivalent of pulling wings off flies.

Even the central story, where our hero rescues our heroin from a life of abuse at the hands of her ex, comes to nothing - because of her 'cold heart'; an inability to form deep, rewarding relationships.

The young writer-director (aged 24, apparently), clearly hadn't realised that these awful tortures are endemic in humans too.

Good cinematography (mostly) some good acting (and some bad). Would have been a good story if he's have thought of an ending (and made it flow much quicker). But in the end, it's a big "so what?".
