A smart take on vampirism stemming from poverty and marginalization as much as it does loneliness and alienation. The focused character drama at its core is adept at hitting whatever emotional buttons it wants to at all times. However, Milo's murders aren't as seamlessly integrated, as we know what Milo is capable of from the very beginning, where it should have been a later catharsis for a greater dramatic impact.
CANNES 2016 Un Certain Regard. 10th film viewed. Minimalist in the spirit of Blood Simple (Coen Bros), Murder by Contract (Irving Lerner) or Shadows. Never a vampire was closer to what we are. A total success for a deeply human movie. == Film minimaliste style Blood Simple, Murder by Contract ou Shadows (Cassavetes). Jamais un vampire n'a été plus proche de nous. Une réussite totale pour un film profondément humain.
