Chic movie. Simple, snowy, slow, not Hollywood. With beautiful shots, relatively unknown persons, unusual storyline. Deep and strange. Movie on loneliness and alienation. Oh, sorry, not able to film king, so casual and frankly. All the classic parameters of vampires met, but shown on the other, that you can safely talk about that the authors found finally in the hackneyed theme of a loophole.

Movie erotic and cold, cruel and good, tasty movie. It watching horror lovers and resent — where the blood, why is it is so little? It watching fans of "Twilight" and wrinkle my nose — where the notorious romance? Although, if you think about it, love story here brighter neordinarnye than publicized vampire love-story.

Only the end is a little inappropriate — how the child travels in alone Yes still drags a huge suitcase?

And I really wanted to learn the history of the old man. But still!
Chic movie.

What makes the film, or narrating any work really worthwhile? Of course no beginning and no end! Man by its essence is lazy, but he was always in joy to guess some mystery! The film begins with a mystery, we nothing know about the characters, so some fragments, give a reason, we provide an opportunity to reflect, to think! The people here why not enough for the most part modern films. We just watch and rejoice, what all all smart on our television screens, as they're pulling all over. And many do films can boast such visitors as thoughts? No, not mathematical calculations, we just trying to fill some gaps in the scenario... No, not shortcomings, rather elegant calm.

now, let's talk about snot!

Well, no them on the faces of Hollywood, well no one elegance American pictures. How nice to look at that guy walking around with a permanent stream below the nose. How clumsy its movement. Yes see the remake, to which I will be back after watching the original, it's feeling like watch new video of Rihanna! Just another one way to make money. As possible to neglect this detail, not well, but the movie's already so has a limit! Not know nothing read it, but way to show us what age the main character, as least standard is interesting, because the hair, because hair continuing to grow on corpses, even if the bodies do not do! I don't understand how can be cut such an important moment in the filming of a modern version, for me personally it was forced to watch from the other side history to make certain conclusions! Thank you porters for this!

the Arts, which house!

From the movie cool! In this cruel, cold-blooded children, scattered throughout the cold, the snow, the cold, gloomy conversations, creepy atmosphere, interesting, regular work of the operator and the course he is literally cold-blooded creatures, and all your favorite vampires. From this just blows cold. Not another formulaic film, in which he was involved, nagging knowledge with "corpses" of hundreds of filmmakers. No, the movie has a strong shade, no away in genre, "we started so, so all done". The Director has a sense of taste, it can transmit it to the audience!

It's just not beautiful

In the music world covers the old songs are often better than the originals. But this pattern is difficult to extend to the cinematography. Well, why? Why act like the company of the Asylum?! Masterpiece on and masterpiece of better have anything doesn't work, it has been a clear failure. When I learned about the release of the us version, was shocked the prefix "Saga", is to be continued? To which is all? As I have said, just another one way to make some money, not even have to do any promotion... the People who watched the original, just not hesitate to run into movie Prime Minister... I also not abstaining from view my expectations were correct and even more, I even more disappointed! Gary well you're why so? Okay Moritz, is small and not experienced, but you're where?

Left to conclude

The best movie of the genre of "movies about vampires". It is beautifully, it is the most realistic (if this was possible), no Paphos, there are strong grounds in the ironic story, there is reason to think when the screen credits begin to flow under the light instrumental, there are clear signs of a good movie, perhaps it can be considered as such!

If you are someone who understands — is it so important to which world he owns?..

I want to talk about the most unusual film about the vampires. At least those I saw. Picture of Swedish Director Thomas Alfredson "Let me in" — not those look "in one breath", but of those leave behind a storm of emotions and long finish. It has prompted me to write the review I originally, to write not going to. To my deep regret, with the works of John Lindqvist Ajvide I do not know. Therefore, to compare and to contrast not will. Just talk about his impressions of your recently viewed...

"Let me in" — this is the story of an unusual affection of a human and a vampire. The story for modern cinema too typical, perhaps even beaten. But it — only first glance. It turns out that such scenes still can surprise...

The protagonist of the film — 12-year-old boy Oskar, living in a terrible world under the name Alone. So that either at home or in does not feel happy. Classmates call it"pig" and every time invent new ways of bullying him. Father, it seems, are more concerned with drinking with cronies than the education of his son. And mother not even think about why it is the boy grows so glum and silent, where on his face bruised and scratches why it walking all alone... Alone. Such a terrible word, especially for child period of identity formation, as need love understanding. And boy every day becomes more closure. He meekly endures the blows and cuffs and no who does not share their problems and experiences. But everything changes when he meets Eli. Same lonely same poor...

I will be your friend. And don't ask!
-And I'm not requested...


Oscar was a stranger in his own world. And for Ali the world and was his. Strange, too strange for it to be a simple girl... On the yard cold winter, and it's a snowy street in one nightgown, stepping on the snow small bare feet From the... it smells weird, and she askance, as creature... the Girl who never will not become an adult — after all, she's a vampire... In think of the character "Interview with a vampire" — the little girl, Claudia, who also was forced for years to live in the body of a child. But if Claudia his "gift" enjoys biting the throats of mortals, Ali doesn't the — only pain. And seeing the girl is drinking blood from people, for some reason does not experience the usual for this case, feelings of rejection — only acute pity for her. And with those in a strange thought: it is more humane than a lot of people. At least — the classmates of Oscar.

The first thing that strikes the film — what is depicted vampire world. In "Let me in" it is absolutely devoid of the Gothic grandeur, what we used to see in classic movies about these blood-suckers. Crypts, coffins and long, delicate fangs remained in the past — in "Dracula Bram Stoker", in "Interview with a vampire"... Forget about them. Girl Eli living in ordinary small apartment. To sunlight killed her the day she canaverial window cloth and she sleeps in knocked out of boards box, with head wrapped old blankets. Vampires live in the neighborhood people. They are them are different. And in "Let me in" it looks frighteningly real, and not pretentious like in Twilight, with which is often compared. Another one thing in common between the heroes of these films — pursuit of the suppression of their instincts. But... is it possible to overcome his nature? The Cullens it manages somehow quite easily. And Eli not can blood. And it makes the film more honest. Still no one movie vampires don't been so real — and so helpless at the same time. If we and to believe in vampires, then only these...

"Let me in" — first of all movie in the genre of "horror". But no horror picture is not cause. Hollywood movie on the same the theme would be stuffed with "Boo moments" picturesquely scattered parts of human bodies. would rather it is a rejection, sometimes turning into nausea. "Let me in" — true European movie, and it goal — not to scare, and show — with all the depth and tragic. And caused by watching the emotions — sincere, born of the subconscious. When you are viewing American horror did not exactly experience — and I grateful for this Thomas Alfredson! From the bloody scenes — only numbness, cold as a snowy Sweden. A post — why something is "not in those moments": for example, fear for the Oscar pool,

Fans of American horror films will probably appreciate the remake "Let me in", coming out in this year. Maybe he will be shot in the fashionable twilight key. Perhaps his the creators will add in the film is a couple of dialogs "eternal", and possible — and some controversial scenes. One thing I know that will be a very different movie. For other, mass, the audience. Original Swedish picture — with the extremely slow development of events and careful drawing of even the most seemingly quite unnecessary detail, making the film rather meditative — realized estimated the advantage of a few. Friends, we have forgotten how to watch a good movie... Otherwise how to explain such a low rating on IMDb — vs fairly high on IMDB?

the Movie is not for everyone. Beautiful and brutal, touching and a little naive. Burning real and some "snow" at the same time. It is caused I have a lot of different emotions — from fear to an acute attack of loneliness, from nowhere. The movie, which is not enough to just view — it needs to be in. Let your heart. Perhaps it will be there for a long time.
