With it’s beautiful cinematography, steady pace, and understated acting, Byzantium is solid modern Gothic vampire tale. A bit reminiscent of Interview with the Vampire and The Moth Diaries, we see mother and daughter vampire in current day and through flashbacks and storytelling are told of how they came to be and the loneliness of their existence.
Byzantium is a slow burn and never takes any drastic chances. It forgoes the cheese of many vampire films and remains melancholy throughout. This certainly won’t be for everyone, yet there is definitely something worthy here.
> The way I wanted like the old days, great!
An Irish vampire movie, thus back to where the vampires were originated. There are no good vampire movies these days, all those are teen target products which are simply a fantasy flick. In the old days, its horror and terrifying ugly giant beasts, the werewolves were, but in the todays movies they are adorable giant wolves. It’s either vampire movie or werewolf, the result is same. ‘Twilight’ or ‘Vampire Academy’ and others, just not my type, though watch them for entertainment and to keep up-to-date.
The reason I watched it is for Saoirse Ronan, because I like her. But Gemma Arterton has been so good like always. To me this is what called a vampire movie. Of course, themes should vary from a movie to another, that does not mean one can completely abandon the basic theory. Neo-gothic is one of that, the present filmmakers forgets, because that kind of set-up gives Dracula effect. This film has been just like everything I wanted, so I enjoyed every bit.
It is always great to see a movie that portrays the world over the span of 100 or more years. As usual survival and hiding the identity is the main intention for the concept. But from who (other than humans) and why is the suspense that reveals formally at the right time. If you like ‘We’re the Nights’, then this is the right one to pick. But not great as ‘Interview with the Vampire’ was, in fact, it was directed by the same director.
Original approach to the Vampire mythos which is more an examination of being human.
Byzantium is more a study of being human than being vampire and holds the attention easily with strong lead performances. At the center is actually a mother daughter relationship, a question of nature versus nurture and survival. As well as all the vices of humankind thrown in for good measure. In this movie the vampires are all human, albeit changed and remain human, albeit enhanced but at a cost and within the shadows of normal living. Life and death of course are issues and living,if we could live forever would we rise above what we are? Questions within. Really enjoyed this and good to see Saiorse Ronan back on form after that terrible Alien outing. Gemma Arterton also puts in a great performance. This is billed as a vampire movie however I’d recommend it to anyone as although the elements are there its very far from what you’d expect of a movie of that genre.
what a gem
in all honesty the reason i know about this film is because am sort of fascinated with saoirse ronan and i follow all of her news, but unfortunately this beautiful film hasn’t got the fame it deserves in contrast to all the other vampire movies, it’s not like any other vampire movie I’ve ever seen maybe due to the impeccable performances by the leads and also the direction is leaning towards dark and drama rather than teenage fantasies, i mean those vampires share a few traits with the Hollywood sexy monsters, they feed on blood and they live forever and that’s it, they don’t have super powers and they’re not super rich and they don’t sparkle or burn in the sun, actually most of the time i kept forgetting that am watching a vampire flick and just got immersed in there stories and mysteries, what also drew me completely into the film is the atmospheric nature and style the director adopted and merged with the angelic music and the grim rainy cloudy weather which helped deepen the edgy feeling of the story. this is definitely a superior piece of art than interview with a vampire just watch it and you’ll get the feeling
