Trivia

Christopher Lee was originally considered for the role of Count Karnestein, (probably as to make the film marketable for fans of his Hammer vampire films) but the part eventually went to his friend Mel Ferrer. See more »

Beautiful and an Interesting movie
29 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm a fan of director Roger Vadim's movie. They have vividness that's uniquely his. This movie is no exception. The details are superb, and eroticism shown can only be put on screen by a genius who's born with talent. The thought provoking plot is built into the picture itself. The mood , the camera angle, all tells a story while heightening the mood. It's an art that I wish more Hollywood directors would learn how to do.

Anette Vadim is beautiful in this movie. Obviously Roger Vadim knows how to pick his women.

The movie has lavishness, and esprit that more modern movies can't emulate.

The movie is low on technical sophistication, or overt gore of vampirism, but you need to see it to appreciate how interesting, and beautiful this movie is.
