Lena (Karoline Herfurth, Perfume: Story of a Murderer) is a troubled young woman from the wrong part of town. Antisocial and self destructive, Lena is caught in a dead end life until she meets Louise. Beautiful and glamorous, Louise is everything Lena is not and Lena cannot help but be flattered by her attention and the promise of a new life and family. A life of power and excitement. A life that will never, ever end. Fresh from the success of his internationally acclaimed The Wave, director Dennis Gansel delivers a darkly sexy spin on the vampire mythos, one where glamour and power come with a price not noticed until it is far too late.

I must admit that upon seeing the DVD cover art for the German horror flick "We Are The Night," my expectations weren't exceedingly high. Don't get me wrong--I mean who doesn't enjoy a cadre of hot female vampires? But I thought I was in store for cheesy late night titillation as opposed to a compelling tale of blood sucking mayhem. Any reservations I might have had, however, were quickly dispelled by a stylish and blood-spattered beginning. Dennis Gansel, fresh off the intriguing "The Wave," serves up an intoxicating brew of female empowerment, crime drama, and monster mischief. And while not perfect, fans of the genre should have much to appreciate in this well made production. Glossy with good effects, this presentation offers up a unique addition to vampiric lore serving up equal doses of female bonding, romance, macabre humor, and gritty violence. Far from just being a guilty pleasure, "We Are the Night" is a solid horror movie just waiting to be discovered by a broader audience.
The central character is a street tough, Lena, who gets by on her wits and a bit of petty theft. Something in the girl appeals to a beautiful and enigmatic stranger who indoctrinates Lena into a bizarre otherworldly life. It is an opportunity for Lena to live in a glamorous new style, but at what cost? Further complicating matters is a handsome young cop who senses that something unexplainable is happening with the girl. A strange, but satisfying, love triangle of sorts is formed.Read more ›

There is a darkness to this film that explores the idea of, "What do I do now that I have everything that I could want...I get to stay this way forever." No children, no love life, and no friends...you outlive everyone you knew. Yes, the glamour is amazing...then we see reality set in.
A film with high re-watch value.
Karoline Herfurth is brilliant and a stand out actress. I went and watched a few other films she is in, and it was well worth the adventure.
Check it out.

The movie is really good, however I was not aware it was subtitles. Perhaps making that known in description so buyer would catch it more easier would be a bit helpful.Published 11 months ago by Debra
