Plot Summary

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?

Edit
Trivia Nina Hoss was always the first and only choice as Louise when Dennis Gansel wrote the script in 1999. She wanted the part from the get go. Karoline Herfurth had also been attached since the 90s but was too young to play Lena, the part Gansel wanted to give her. Instead he promised her the part of Nora. Due to the delay in production, however, Herfurth was old enough to play Lena when the film was finally green-lit. See more »
Goofs In the montage sequence in the beginning Louise's face is (inexpertly) photoshopped into Menzel's Flute Concert of Frederick the Great. Actually, the person sitting in this position in the painting is Frederick's sister Wilhelmine. See more »
