Story of My Death Geregisseerd door Albert Serra
One vanishing roué’s tragedy is another’s comedy in Serra’s cerebral anti-period piece, a string of captivating-lugubrious digital compositions with a lambent natural light that progressively darkens, as if wrapped more and more within the Transylvanian Count’s cape.

Serra’s approach risks ridicule – throughout the film, Casanova grazes on an endless variety of foods, including shit and blood, while acknowledging rather than contributing to philosophical debates… and the glowering Dracula is so austere a representation of vampirism that he makes Carl Dreyer’s Vampyr (1932) seem like a Terence Fisher Hammer film.

Ultimately it’s the filmmaking itself, not the ideas ostensibly being explored, which strands this willfully esoteric dress-up show from any sense of heft or cinematic vitality. Those familiar with the Catalan filmmaker’s work will recognize Story of My Death’s long-winded scenes and inflexible static shots as auteurist tics (though, to be sure, he’s hardly a game-changer in this regard), but here they register as mere affectation.
