  • Excerpt: Throughout Byzantium , 16-year-old Eleanor (Saoirse Ronan) writes of what she cannot speak—a bit archaically, yes, but she is, after all, over a hundred years old. Living with an older sister, Clara (Gemma Arterton), who might actually be her mother, the cagey lass is almost absurdly forthright on paper, ostentatiously recalling her life story in a notebook before scattering its pages to the wind.

  • Conclusion: You may be on vampire overload by now, but if you have room in your brain for one more tale of sad immortality and gory bloodsucking, you could do far worse than Byzantium . Director Neil Jordan is no stranger to the genre—he made Interview with the Vampire back in '94—and his return to it is stylish and self-assured, even if he's working with a lower budget here.

  • Summary: While Neil Jordan’s last film, 2009’s beguiling, wholly underrated sea-nymph tale Ondine , stopped short of marking a full-fledged return to the realm of fantastique where he’s notably contributed with Company of Wolves and Interview with the Vampire , Byzantium is such a return - and his most satisfying and cohesive work in years.

  • Conclusion: A mixture of tough and wistful and reflective and brutal, this is the ideal vampire movie for Twi-hards who’ve had their hearts broken for the first time and want to move on to a less cosy vision of eternal romance with a side order of addiction.

  • Conclusion: Byzantium kertoo kahdesta vampyyristä, jotka elävät epäelämäänsä Britanniassa, kumpainenkin omalla tyylillään. Parissa sadassa vuodessa ehtii kuitenkin kertyä jos jonkinmoista historiaa, jonka kanssa joutuu pakostakin jossakin vaiheessa kamppailemaan. Ohjaaja Neil Jordan on pureutunut vampyyreihin aiemminkin, nimittäin vuonna 1994 Interview with the Vampiren merkeissä. Jordanin onnistuneempia elokuvia ovat kuitenkin ne, jotka hän on myös itse käsikirjoittanut.

  • Excerpt: - Don't. - I won't. De har hemligheter. Clara och Ella. De utger sig för att vara systrar. Men… Lager efter lager lättas av regissör Neil Jordan, som en gång i forntiden (det vill säga knappt 20 år sedan) skapade en av de fortfarande mest vördade vampyrfilmerna. Den där med Tom Cruise och Brad Pitt som bittra blodsugare i New Orleans och annorstädes, ni vet. Men… Det här är annorlunda i en del avseenden.
