Overall a refreshing take on a clichéd genre
16 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

While I disagree with many of the reviews--and the low overall score for this film, I do understand as it is not your typical take on a vampire film. This is a story of relationships; vampires only play a small part in the film, but reflect the confusion and choices we make when choosing how to live and who we choose to spend our lives with. What would your choice be if you had to choose for eternity? More realistic than most films of the genre, the main characters struggle with tentative connections that are sharply forced when an accident causes an irrevocable change of plans.

The back and forth indecision of the characters and the uncertainty over the morality of their choices underlies the majority of the film and in this sense was both satisfyingly realistic and annoying. Most films in any genre have boy meet girl, they fall in love, and then do whatever it takes to be together for ever. You won't find this kind of romance here and sometimes it simply becomes irritating--if refreshing.

Personally I found the ending unsatisfactory, but more unpredictable than most films of this nature. As a result of this ambiguity some viewers will not like this film, but if you can empathize with a pair of young people thrust into a different world that seems to force a forever-after choice, you'll--if not enjoy, then appreciate the storyline. The acting was low key but decent and the dialogue pretty realistic--while nothing about the music or cinematography stood out, that's actually the sign of a decent film.
