Comments on 'A Nocturne'
10 May 2008 | by b-littlemoreSee all my reviews

I caught A Nocturne at the Melbourne Underground Film Festival (MUFF) at the end of 2007. While it didn't have the most profound effect on me at first( I am a fan of more light hearted and visceral horror films),I found I kept thinking about the film long after the screening(and thinking about the hot body of lead actress Vanessa de Largie).It is certainly not a "sit back and cop the action" style film, and thats why I think it works.

There are plenty of vampire films going around these days, most relying on special effects and suspense. What sets A Nocturne apart I feel is the barren nature of all aspects of the film. The sets, the dialogue, the very "feel" of the picture is sparse and nihilistic. The two lead actors, Vanessa de Largie and Alex Spears, have the least amount of lines in the film. This meant they had to emote and project their characters essences through look, posture and demeanour almost exclusively.Luckily they both gave fantastic performances.

I really liked the pervading sense of futility throughout the film.I assume that was the main point, outsiders trapped in a world they didn't see much sense in.Its great to see a movie that seems to be more an expression of a point on the state of society rather than a titillating thrill played out through action and romance.
