An amazing horror film. (I have to call it “horror” because of the vampire theme, but although there’s blood and some violence, there’s no gore.) The plot has large holes, but when you come down to it, this is a relationship film between a bullied 12-year old named Oskar and Eli, the strange girl in the next apartment who’s not human. A Swedish production, filmed in the cold, white dead of winter, it’s visually striking and the most original thing I’ve seen in a long time.
