The vampires Louise, Charlotte and Nora arrive in Berlin after attacking the passengers and crew of an airplane in a flight to Paris. The leader Louise has been looking for centuries for her missed love and Charlotte misses her daughter that she saw in 1923 for the last time. Meanwhile, the smalltime pickpocket Lena steals a Russian mobster and is chased by Detective Tom. When Lena goes to a nightclub, the lesbian Louise believes that Lena is the love of her life and transforms her into a vampire. Lena initially feels lost with the transformation, but sooner she joins the trio of vampires in their nightlife. When the pack of vampires attacks a group of criminals, the police department investigates the case and hunts the women without knowing the risks that they are taking. Meanwhile the lonely Tom and the Lena fall in love with each other; but the unrequited love of Louise for Lena jeopardizes the couple. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Did You Know?


The song "Au clair de la lune" that Charlotte sings and is used as her theme is the first song ever recorded and also the first sound ever recorded. It was recorded in 1860 by Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville. See more »


Charlotte intends to kill herself by exposing to sunlight. She locks Louise and Lena inside so they don't stop her. Louise bangs the door so hard we see it bending from the outside. But when we see her again banging the door from inside, it is intact. See more »


Louise: You brought them to us!
Lena: That's not true I didn't say anything to him!
Louise: How did they find us then?
Lena: You kill people every night! Do you think this goes unnoticed?
Charlotte: She's right Louise. Cleaning up has never been our strong point.

User Reviews

just another lesbian vampire flick
20 January 2013 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

This is a misleading film. This isn't a horror at all, it's more a drama taking place in a vampire world. There isn't really any biting going on or an amount of red stuff flowing. And that's why so many vampire lovers will tear this flick down. Because it's low on everything. Sure, they all look sexy especially Charlotte (Jennifer Ulrich) but somehow it doesn't work. look, when they are at an inside swimming pool and ask the boys to join. You can see what is coming and yes one girl take of her top to reveal her tits toward the guys but not for the viewers. You are left with a hunger.

And there's a lot of dancing going on in the nightlife. I can take it once but always going to that place were in fact nothing is happening...except for the music itself. There's one scene were the vamps go wandering around and are driving their cars on Nightlife from IAMX. Being a fan of IAMX that was a nice surprise and you can hear the whole song.

But be honest, it's a bit like Twilight, a bit like Romeo and Juliet. The forbidden love between a human and a vampire. Jeaulousy between the vampires, lesbian love between Louis and Charlotte, you could see the fight coming between them. Maybe I'm missing something that I didn't see, what is worth watching is the fight between both of them for the effects but by then it's too late. It's was a long night...
