Ed C (it) wrote: One line summary: Serviceable remake of Dracula, based mostly on the novel.------------------- In the opening segment, a young woman, Tanja, has a tryst with her married lover. They have a spat. She walks back home alone; an owl targets her. She calls for help; a taxidermist comes out of his house, but does not help her after she falls. The owl transforms into a humanoid vampire and bites Tanja. In the next segment, Jonathan Harker arrives at a small train stop after the only coach of the day has left. He commissions a horse, and rides to Passburg. He quarters his horse, and stops at the Gasthaus for a hot evening meal and a night's lodging. He observes a number of shady characters lurking about. Later the shady group dig up Tanja's grave. The taxidermist who did not help Tanja fight off the vampire attacks them. By the time they have subdued him, Tanja is gone. The next morning Jonathan visits Lucy, the daughter of the mayor. Lucy wonders where Mina is; Jonathan says she was delayed. Jonathan eventually makes his way to Count Dracula's castle, where he is to be the librarian. The Count shows him his collection, and Jonathan looks forward to the cataloging and the reading. Unfortunately for Jonathan, Tanja is still a young out-of-control vampire, and she sets about to get his blood. When she's drawing from his neck, Dracula throws her off and takes her place. Escape fails the next day. Mina arrives at the train station and is met by her old friend Lucy instead of Jonathan. Dracula visits Lucy that night, and Lucy looks terrible the next day. Lucy talks her into going to the castle. Mina, alone on horse, is attacked by wolves, but saved (hm) by Dracula and taken to his castle. Mina thinks Dracula looks familiar; Dracula feels the same. Jonathan is not at the castle, so Mina heads back. Lucy has passed. What will become of Jonathan? Is Mina one of Dracula's wives re-incarnated? Will Lucy rise as a vampire? Will Van Helsing ever show up?-----Scores----- Cinematography: 7/10 Other than some gratuitous camera shake, the film was well shot. The sets and costumes were beautiful on the whole, conveying the impression of the Europe of around 100 years ago. The CGI interludes (few and short) were seriously bad, such as the praying mantis segment, the blood effects, and a couple of the wolf transformations. Sound: 7/10 The lip synch needed improvement. Some of the instrumental music sounded like throwbacks to the 1950s or 1960s; this was not a plus. The choral background music was far better. Acting: 8/10 I was put off by Kretschmann's performance at first, but got to like it as the film progressed. When Van Helsing accomplishes hard-to-believe feats against the vampires, I only kept watching because Rutger Hauer was the actor. Marta Gastini was good in the pivotal role of Mina. My favourite was Miriam Giovanelli as Tanja. Screenplay: 7/10 I liked the meeting of Dracula with the town leaders. They mention their pact with Dracula: he helps them financially, while they allow him certain liberties. After a number of deaths in short order, the leaders consider breaking the pact. Dracula lets them know his power; only his true ally survives. That would have been a good place to start wrapping up the film: there is no defense against transcendent power. Let everyone know (or suspect) this, then end it. -- The film stays with the book's tradition, though, which is unfortunate. For instance, if Dracula can change from human form to a swarm of insects back to human form in a second or two, why would he allow himself to be destroyed? -- This movie answers that question better than any other I have seen.

Trece: Fuck, who told you to drive around in a brand new car? You think I can guess who you are? Carla: Why is having money a sin? My father's worked hard all his life. Trece: That's not the point. I have money too. Carla: What is it, then? Trece: Don't look at me like that, OK? Don't look at me like that, or I'll lose it. Point is... Carla: Yes? Trece: When half city is knee-deep in shit, and you're rolling in a expensive car. Shit, how you expect them not to hate you? Huh? Why shouldn't they hate you? Look at your outfit, look at this... [points at her clothing and jewerling] Trece: . Do you know how many families that shit could feed? Huh? One thing is that we're different. Great, I get that. But rubbing your money in people's face is another. Carla: But everyone gets robbed here. Trece: But not all with the same hatred.

Don S (jp) wrote: This is actually a very telling movie about what despicable things people will do to each other with very little provocation. Two guys set out to ruin each other's lives after a car wreck. Well acted. My only problem with it was believing that this was supposed to have all happened in one day.

Andrew K (fr) wrote: I remember watching this. '96, so I was 10-11 years old. I turned it off after 15 mintues. In fact, the only reason I remember it is because of how atrociously bad it was. Yes, it takes a special kind of movie to tramatize someone enough to leave a lasting impression for nearly 15 years.

Tom M (ru) wrote: An emotionally moving movie about people moving movables. I agree with the other reviews: not as touching as Koyaanisqatsi, but it does still show the world we live in, and our influence on it.

Corey B (es) wrote: Painfully awful third act ruins a pretty standard 80s teen thriller, which has a couple of good moments when it reaches Berlin.

JJ M (de) wrote: One of my favourite films. Its greatest power is achieved in the character of Dersu who constantly struggles with nature and relentlessly uses his acquired craft as a woodsman as well as his generational knowledge to fight its forces. Its a masterful examination in the borderline that exists between wilderness and civilistation
