Great, unconventional vampire movie!
1 May 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I watched this great, unconventional vampire movie at the 26th Brussels International Film Festival (27 March - 8 April 2008). After having seen numerous typical vampire flicks with all the clichés involved, it was truly refreshing to see one with a different approach - a philosophical approach no less, with references to the work of Nietzsche.

Sure, the protagonists X and Z still need to drink blood to survive, but in contrast to most vampires in cinematic history, they have something very human about them. Thus, you easily develop a connection with them. These two souls look more like "different" kind of human beings than like the cold, insensitive creatures that vampires practically always are.

X and Z are outsiders who live on the edge, struggling with both their condition and the society they're condemned to being part of. They are portrayed with appropriate modesty by genuine revelation Vanessa de Largie and first-time (!) actor Alex Spears.

Although there are scenes in which blood is being shed, the emphasis hasn't been laid on gore, action or cheap thrills. No, it dwells far more on exploring the difficult times the two main characters go through and creating an intense, moody atmosphere.

I'm not surprised this movie won three awards at the Melbourne Underground Film Festival, for A Nocturne is truly an impressive piece of craftsmanship. If you are at a festival where it is screened, catch it! This is one not to be missed.
