Storyline

Steven is multi-talented, handsome, and a expert seducer of women. He craves intimacy with women, literally cannot live without it, and is in search of the perfect woman. All of his relationships, however, end tragically. Eventually, he meets Anne, a strong woman who is different, better than the others. However, soon it becomes clear that this is a relationship that only one of them will survive. The title refers to a quote from Francis Bacon, who wrote about crocodiles, who shed tears when they devour their prey. Written by <clazsis@aol.com>

Quotes

Steven Grlscz: [to Anna] Who is this that comes like a pillar of the smoke out of the wilderness? Perfumed with myrrh and frankincense. The joints of thy thighs are like jewels, the work of a cunning craftsman. You read.
Anna Labels: Thy lips are like scarlet and thy mouth is comely. The smell of thy breath like apples.
Steven Grlscz: And thy breasts two clusters of grapes. Thou, all fair, my love, there is no flaw in you.

Brilliant
20 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

Indeed, this is a brilliant movie. This is a brave movie. A movie with a beautifully constructed narrative which doesn't seem constructed at all, with fascinating actors great acting and depth everywhere.

The most unusual Vampire film I've seen to date and certainly the best one.

Blood is the color of love.
