I just finished watching "let the right one in" a swedish film,directed by Tomas Alfredson.
if you have heard about this movie you know its a Great film, i was awstruck by the end by how brilliantly filmed this movie is.
Story: a swedish boy named Oskar lives with his mother in a suburb in Stokholm. he is small and picked on by bullies alot. he spends his free time practicing Revenge with his knife. then one day he finds a strange seemingly young girl named Eli,who turns out to be a Vampire. and slowely they become friends in a world that rejects them.
The Good: this movie is as i said "Brilliantly" shot. the Tomas alfredson is an amazing director.
this is how a Vampire love movie should be made. everyone who hates twilight will welcome this movie with open arms.
the movie is in Swedish with subtitles. the actors are amazing, the tone is amazeing the whole frikn film is Amazing! go out and buy this!!
The bad: the only bad thing i could think of was pointed out by a youtuber "Furyofthefilmfan". he pointed out that
the relationship between Oskar and Eli could be considered pedophilia. because Eli is 12 but quote from the film "ive been twleve for along time". and Eli is a... well watch the movie and youll find out. but i said the exact same thing about twilight (the pedophilia part). vampires are always in thier Hundreds and the girls are 12-18. but i was able to enjoy the movie enyway.
