Chris_Parker's rating of the film Les vampires

One of the great masterpieces of the silent era. This fascinating tale about a group of petty thieves who revolt against the banality of their time by feeding on the anxiety of the Parisian upper class is a machiavellian reflection of a complacent bourgeois order on the brink of collapse; a subtle allegory for World War 1.
