Synopsis: In the Iranian ghost-town Bad City, a place that reeks of death and loneliness, the townspeople are unaware they are being stalked by a lonesome vampire.
Impressions:I liked this, the style reminded me of a jarmusch film. The subtleness of the movement and the stark black and white picture is simply charming. The acting and story is also to die for.
Social Message: The film is very feministic in its approach to the vampire genre. Most vampires are sexual, strong males, who are always in a state of seduction. This vampire is different, the men in this film (except Arash) are vile in one way or another. The vampire kills them because of their vile primal ways that are considered oppressive to women. Arash is different. he is kind and loving and the times the vampire could have bit him, she doesn’t. which further shows her mission to suck the evil out of this community while preserving the good.
