More like a documentary
This film reminds me of those history documentaries where they re-enact certain scenes between the narrations. The subtitles are very long, sometimes even two or three in a row, and contain very little direct speech. Instead the subtitles seem to explain the overall events and the historical backgrounds, sometimes with the exact given date, so I was able to follow the film with the Wikipedia article of Karadjordje on the side to fully understand what was going on. At the end, they even show how Karadjordje got honored after his death, e.g. the unveiling of a monument; the film finally takes on a documentary style.
Kind of funny is the very end, where the director and some of the actors actually take bows to the audience.
Låt den rätte komma in (2008)
Beautiful, a bit too long
I saw this movie at the Fantasy-Filmfest in Cologne, Germany tonight. I think, it is a beautiful film. It quietly develops a wonderful love story about two outsiders. It contains many typical elements of a vampire movie, and of course you get to ask, who is the real monster, human beings or others? Besides that, you find the typical Scandinavian dry humour and a message, to accept others, as they are. When I left the cinema, I couldn't get the grin out of my face hand and I walked home with goose-pimples, not because of horror, but because of happiness and the beauty of this film. I just hope, the copies after the release will be better than the one I saw. Also, I personally would have shortened the movie a little bit, although I caught myself sitting in the same position for a long time without starting to feel uncomfortable.
