A fragile, anxious boy, 12-year-old Oskar is regularly bullied by his stronger classmates but never strikes back. The lonely boy's wish for a friend seems to come true when he meets Eli, also 12, who moves in next door to him with her father. A pale, serious young girl, she only comes out at night and doesn't seem affected by the freezing temperatures. Coinciding with Eli's arrival is a series of inexplicable disappearances and murders. One man is found tied to a tree, another frozen in the lake, a woman bitten in the neck. Blood seems to be the common denominator - and for an introverted boy like Oskar, who is fascinated by gruesome stories, it doesn't take long before he figures out that Eli is a vampire. But by now a subtle romance has blossomed between Oskar and Eli, and she gives him the strength to fight back against his aggressors. Oskar becomes increasingly aware of the tragic, inhuman dimension of Eli's plight, but cannot bring himself to forsake her. Frozen forever in a twelve-year-old's body, with all the burgeoning feelings and confused emotions of a young adolescent, Eli knows that she can only continue to live if she keeps on moving. But when Oskar faces his darkest hour, Eli returns to defend him the only way she can.

Is this film any good? Had it sitting around for awhile now.

Is it dubbed? That's a lot of money for a Swedish movie with subtitles.

I watched a couple of Swedish things recently, they do things differently in Sweden.

Thankfully it is not dubbed, it has subtitles instead. I don't think is a lot of money for this film as in my mind it is the best film of the year so far.

Wait, are you saying you want a dubbed version?
Dubbed movies suck, everyone knows that, but particularly this one - the dubbing is absolutely terrible.

I got the Bluray a few weeks ago for 12 pounds. Completely and utterly overrated. Yes it's beautifully shot, and yes it has other things going for it, but if I knew then what I knew now, I wouldnt' buy it again, even at that price.
I'm not knocking the deal though - buy it at that price and make your own mind up, at least you won't lose as much money as me!

read the book its so much better then the film

Watched it this week. thought it was pretty good - lovefilm's 5*'s (from user's) is a little overrating it tho... i had the subtitled version. worth a watch.

I had the US Blu Ray which has both the subtitled and dubbed versions of the film on it.The subtitled version is far superior IMO,dubbing ruined what I thought was a well acted and very atmospheric film.Worth £6 if you like this kind of thing,its a bit like Twilight for adults.

Don't listen to them - my movie of the year.
Deals with the difficulties of growing up in a more mature way than any other fim in recent memory. It also happens to be a vampire movie but it's a lot more than that.
If you like action and explosions look elsewhere (though both of those do feature, i think).
It's a stunning movie to look at, has excellent performances and is subtle and grisly in equal measure.
Best viewed on a big screen to make the most of the vast, empty snowscapes that figure so prominently.
Not a light-hearted movie, but an excellent one.
Less than 6 quid? Buy it.

I would place this in the same ranking as Pan's Labyrinth [sp]. Top Marks.:thumbsup:

Mine doesn't have [Theatrical] after the subtitle bit, so I reckon I'll trade this in and wait rather than spoil it.

I'll hang on or get a DL of it (since I've already paid for it!).

I thought this was an excellent film, and moving in places, not a typical vampire movie.

Just finished reading John Ajvide Lindqvist's other book 'Handling the Undead'; again brilliant...and not a typical zombie story

I can't imagine watching a dubbed version, I think it would really spoil the film. I was disappointed to hear the Americans have decided to remake it and already got a cast together!

But don't let that put you off :thumbsup:

Worst movie of the year. Highly overrated!!

Don't waste your time watching this movie. Like my Piglet said, you should read the book. ;-)

And from what I read the director wanted the movie to be 30 minutes longer. Here's to hoping for a directors cut eh? Your comment could be true for something like He Is Legend, which is nothing at all like the book, but come on. Hopefully when you see how appaling the US remake will be (and how much THAT will stray from the book) you'll come to respect this masterpiece for what it is - something highly original and refreshing, in a genre so stale and old.



i dont know what book you were reading because the film misses out so much of what was in the book. Oskar the young boy was very likeable in the book but in the film...:?

The film should have had the extra 30 minutes so it could have told the story in the correct way.

Maybe you need to reread the book:thumbsup:

Awesome film IMO, best I've seen in ages. Yes it misses out a lot of the book but then don't all films? Parts were left out that would have meant less time telling the story of the relationship between Oskar and Eli, which was depicted wonderfully in the film.
