Hunger for Clarimonde
16 June 2010 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

This is decent and quite faithful adaptation of the vampire story La Morte Amoureuse (1836) by Theophile Gautier. Original novella, which I read as 1908 English translation called Clarimonde, is wonderful Olde World melodrama about forbidden love between young Catholic priest and beautiful vampiress, with the ornate language and most sumptuous vampire siren in the form of titular Clarimonde. In Gerald Wexler's adaptation, appropriately set in snowy 19th century Quebec, Clarimonde is not blood-sucker, however, but succubus, who shows her breasts in very pretty and stylized sex scenes. (Fun hairy facts: Clarimonde has short dark hair, not long and blonde, and her priest lover has no tonsure). Dreamlike atmosphere and beautiful production values really help, with Clarimonde's room being a place of opulent roses and priest's home being simple and cold.
