  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Gebaseerd op een gelijknamig toneelstuk van Moira Buffini is BYZANTIUM de terugkeer van Neil Jordan naar het gotische horrorgenre. De Ierse filmmaker vooral bekend van THE CRYING GAME (1992), maar ook verantwoordelijk voor bijvoorbeeld THE COMPANY OF WOLVES (1984) en INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE (1994)...
