Love, drugs, vampires and film reels with a Bergman touch
A very disturbing Spanish cult movie, involving drugs addiction, the dark side of love and the passion of filming. For most of the critics is also a horror movie and a vampires story. And every time you watch it you can find in it something new, indeed.
Shooted in the years of the Spanish political and cultural dawn, but going away from the mainstream, and with a very low budget, it drives you from the beginning to the end in so a magnetic and weird plot that you can't stop watching.
But Arrebato is also remarkable because of the astonishing performance of the main characters couple, Eusebio Poncela and Cecilia Roth. Most in the claustrophobic atmosphere of their bedroom, it reminds some highlights of Ingmar Bergman films like 'Scener ur ett aktenskapps' o 'Saraband'
