A ballet rendition of Bram Stoker’s gothic novel, presented in a style reminiscent of the silent expressionistic cinema of the early 20th Century.
A both more and less conventional vampire film. Yes, it tells the familiar Dracula story—but filtered brilliantly first through a ballet version of Bram Stoker (!) and secondly thru director Guy Maddin’s exuberantly inventive homage to silent and early sound cinema. A sensual delight!
