Loved the story, but the film was extremely long and slow-moving. Terrific performances and special effects. My favorite character, though, is the guy who says, "Did I tell you I was struck by lightning seven times? Once when I was…"
A Swedish film which was dubbed in English (at least at Netflix). I'm certain it would be better in Swedish with subtitles. But still good. Atmospheric and sincere, it depicts what seems to be a Scandinavian sensibility. There's no sensationalism, and if a vampire movie can be heartwarming, this one is.
Pre-dates Twilight in the increasingly crowded human-loves-vampire-and-doesn't-get-eaten genre.
I must admit I swiped this review format from Bitchee. He's quite the movie watcher!
