"I would have done anything to be with you, however insane." Djuna (Baume) lives a lonely life. Only going out at night and mainly renting movies that she watches by herself. She has a huge beautiful house but the only person that visits is her housekeeper. One night at the video store she meets Paolo (Ventimigilia) but is afraid to talk to him. When he persists she reveals her secret to him. Djuna is a vampire. Both lives are changed forever. I have to admit that I am not a vampire movie fan at all, mainly because of the Twilight movies. This one has more of an Interview With A Vampire feel with the sexual aspect of True Blood. The movie had a very classy, almost operatic feel to it which really helped the movie. This is not a teen geared vampire movie, but it's also not Dracula either. If you are looking for something in the middle then this is for you. If you are a vampire movie fan you will enjoy this. I thought it was OK, but again I am not a big fan of this genre. Overall, if you liked Interview With A Vampire then you will most likely enjoy this one too. I give it a B-.

Ever since Anne Rice's first novel came out, vampires have become creatures of elegance and romance -- all roses, wine goblets, sensuality and twilit marble mansions.

"Kiss of the Damned" seems to be for those who love such stories of "moral" vampires who live lives of beauty and love, which gives this slow-moving character drama a dreamlike quality. Director Xan Cassavetes has created a truly lovely piece of work, misted over with half-light and soft voices, but the denouement definitely leaves something to be desired.

Young screenwriter Paolo (Milo Ventimiglia) meets a beautiful, exotic woman named Djuna (Josephine de La Baume), and instantly falls in love with her. At first, she seems shy of getting too intimate, and soon reveals why -- she's actually a vampire. But when they sleep together, she ends up drinking his blood and turning him into a vampire.

Paolo quickly moves in with Djuna, and the two of them begin a moonlit romance that can last for all of eternity. But then Djuna's sister Mimi (Roxane Mesquida) comes to stay with them for a week -- and her mind games and reckless blood-drinking throw their lives into turmoil. As Djuna introduces Paolo to the local circle of vampires, led by the actress Xenia (Anna Mouglalis), Mimi begins destroying their romance.

In many ways, "Kiss of the Damned" is a rather cliched vampire romance -- a vampire loves a mortal so much that she turns him so they can be together forever. Some lip service is paid to how awful it is to be rich, hot and immortal, but there aren't a lot of real problems. And oh yeah, the admirable vampires abstain from human blood.

But Xan Cassavetes wrings every last drop of sensuality from her movie.

Perhaps the most interesting thing about this film: the director is Alexandra Cassavetes (nicknamed Xan Cassavetes), the daughter of the actor and director John Cassavetes and the actress Gena Rowlands, the granddaughter of the actress Katherine Cassavetes, and sister of the actor-director Nick Cassavetes. I think it’s safe to say film is “in her blood”.

This won favorable attention at the Venice Film Festival, London Film Festival and SXSW Film Festival. In other words, it has a strong European influence, consistent with the Cassavetes family background. As the lead male said about reading the script and accepting the role [I’m paraphrasing I’m sure] “I realized this is like a classic European love story—with a little bit of vampire thrown in. Nobody makes these kind of movies in the US anymore. So I said yes, immediately.” That lead male incidentally is Milo Ventimiglia, who plays the character named “Paulo”. The other main characters are Josephine de la Baume, whose character is named Djuna, and who falls in love with Paulo (and he with her), Roxane Mesquida, who plays Mimi her sister, and Anna Mouglalis who plays Xenia, who is like a mother to Djuna and Mimi—probably not their biological mother, but at least emotionally so.

How would I describe the film? Like a classic European love story with a little bit of vampire thrown in. In many ways, it’s like an intimate family drama film. See, there’s the essential problem with falling in love with and marrying or living with someone. You end up involved not just with them, but with their WHOLE FAMILY too, for better or for worse. Their family dynamics inevitably end up YOUR family dynamics, too.
As for the vampire business, this is not a movie heavy on gore.

It was nice to see a new take on the old romantic vampire type of movie.(Just a note: in Bram Stoker's "Dracula, the Book, Dracula is not a romantic figure at all.) The acting was good and entertaining. All the lead characters drew you into their world.
I am not a Hammer vampire film fan, however if Hammer vampire films would have been like this, they would have been much more popular and would have made a ton of $$$!
I liked that this film was not a slick high tech, with guns and werewolves, vampire movie. Don't get me wrong. I loved the 1st Underworld movie!! It is still the best of all the "Underworlds". I thought the timing for that type of vampire movie was perfect; it was new and fresh and had better effects than all the others with bigger budgets. It makes me wonder what Xan Cassavetes could have accomplished with a bigger budget herself.
I bought on blu-ray to see all the lushness of the film. The more I watch it the more I enjoy it!
I am a vampire film fan going back to Carl Theodor Dreyer. I also like Universal's "Dracula" and "Dracula's Daughter" which reminds me that the female model character named "Lili" (played by Nan Gray)who was victimized by Dracula's daughter and the fan named Ann who was also a victim of a female vampire in "Kiss of the Damned" have a striking physical resemblance.
I also like "Dracula" with Frank Langella as well as "Bram Stoker's Dracula" by Francis Ford Coppola not to mention "Moth Diaries", "We Are the Night", "Let ME In" (I also have the Swedish version), "Byzantium", "Perfect Creature" "The Breed", "Bled" "Night Watch" and of course "The Hunger" to name a few films.
