 Case: The "Byzantium" tells the dramatic story of two female vampire who after their involvement in a heinous crime of resorting to a tumble Inn by the sea. In their new property trying to start their lives from scratch but the secret nature of their bampirikis slowly leaking, creating serious risks for the two women.

The Neil Jordan is no random in the area of atmospheric cinema nor terror in particular. Since the 1980s the Irish filmmaker had shown his talent in creating separate, atmospheric films that exceeded the limits of pure horror and fantasy fields touching deeper themes of the human soul. The emblematic "The Company of Wolves" of 1984 was such an excellent sample. The course's reputation was cemented in the horror audience with classic "Interview With The Vampire" in 1994, where he and the significant assistance first class actors.

The new album entitled "Byzantium" (Greek title: Eternity), harking back to the theme of vampirism, pressing on the successful recipe of "Interview With The Vampire". Here of course the bampiriko duo consists of women unlike the previous movie's vampiric. The emerging Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton impersonating two female vampires, Eleanor and Clara, who wander along here and about 200 years ago, by lifting the huge burden of immortality that gives them their special nature. The relationship of the two women is not tycharpasti but this mother (Clara) and daughter (Eleanor), closer relationship that can exist between two women. The bampireles will be forced to move once again after a murder committed by the dealer. After a not particularly difficult search, find shelter in a decadent Beach guesthouse called Byzantium. And starting a new life, the vampiric nature slowly begins to leak into the region's people putting two women in new adventures. Also two mysterious "Detective" follow their tracks and seems to have some serious reason to seek …

Horror Trivia

The shooting of "Byzantium" became Ireland's sites and England.

Early on in the project seems the quality work of Neil Jordan in directing and the skilful use of his characters, especially the leading twin vampires. The Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton indeed demonstrate excellent chemistry as wonderful characters diametrically opposite. This diversity, however, is not capable of standing the dismisses as the family love proves stronger than the differences in mentality. Can the dealer seem rampant as to how to raise funds (r.r. prostitution) or for the candidate who ruthlessly slashing victims where found, but when comes the critical hour, accepts even to sacrifice for her daughter. The daughter, despite the dark nature of, wishes to develop genuine friendships that are not intended to material benefits. Being more honest and contracted from her mom, takes on the blood of humans only with their consent when I anymore they have definitely lost his fight for life. So different are the two women. Yet the psychic bond remains so intense …

The story that unfolds in "Byzantium" conveys emotion, drama and desperation and apart from some frivolous or simplistic points, seems generally knit. Beyond the obvious emotional direction that follows, the film takes care not to baretis level we merely preach about soap opera nor non-harmful teenage bampirotainias (see e.g. «Twilight»). Sporadically well shows and the tougher side, both the scenes of two women mpigoyn sharp claws on the necks of their victims then to suck blood, and with some extremely violent decapitation that come from where we least expect it! Another notable feature of the "Byzantium" is removing the cliches of sensitivity of vampires in the light. Oddly this doesn't bother after the dramatic events post-willy-nilly-our interest.

Ultimately the "Byzantium" wins the Viewer, being a pretty interesting and well-made film that despite the long period (nearly two hours) no tires at all. Friends of vampires Let's hasten fearlessly in cinemas now that given the opportunity. But it is a diverse film which can enjoy a wider audience, even one that does not bampirismo on pimping. Because the "Byzantium" is definitely something more than a typical and usual vampire film.


Movie Highlights

  • At least two spectacular beheadings.
  • Every scene that little Eleanor sucked the blood of the victims dying in emotional climate.
