Adrian B (ca) wrote: Unique animated feature that describes three parallel stories. The first two stories are of an Indian princess who is kidnapped by villains and held at ransom until her man finds her, only to reject her when he concludes that she had an affair with her captor (even though she didn't!). Both stories differ in the fact that one is narrated by several characters in present day, while the other is narrated through songs, with the princess singing songs by Annette Hanshaw (who passed away in 1985, many years before the movie was even made). The other story is of an American who relocates to India for work, leaving his woman behind in the U.S.A. When she travels to India, she receives little intimacy and later departs unsatisfied. Typical stories are given life thanks to the eye popping imagery and cartoons, which are wonderful to watch. The songs are also nice too and we know when they end... "that's all!"

David A (fr) wrote: (from The Watermark, 05/10/98) A vampire movie that has it all! Well, except for interesting characters, plot, theme, and technical merit. Fessenden is a semi-employed alcoholic who meets a pretty young woman (Snaider) at a Halloween party. The two of them quickly become involved sexually, and as they make love, Snaider always manages to bite Fessenden and draw blood. As Fessenden starts to become ill from being this chick's human water fountain, he starts to wonder if Snaider might be a vampire and not just a good lay with an erotically quirky fetish. Fessenden, who also wrote and directed the film, has made the worst kind of low-budget independent flick: the type that has infinite possibilities, none of which are realized. First of all, why make a vampire film at all, when the subject matter is beyond overdone? What new spin is Fessenden aiming for that we haven't already seen? Couldn't he have used the enabler alcoholic buddies in the film to make a statement on parasitism as related to his friends, his addiction and his romance (hence, the title)? Furthermore, Fessenden sets up many of the long-observed "myths" of vampirism in addition to other thematic possibilities, only to later abandon them. Is Fessenden under the impression that make no statement at all is a contribution to the genre? Fessenden does do better on the visual level by setting the film in dirty hovels and run-down back alleys with a large emphasis on hand-held camerawork and natural lighting. His gritty, seedier side of New York does help make the circumstances seem somewhat plausible. As an actor, Fessenden's performance is commendable, his harsh features fitting right in with his distasteful and unattractive setting. His fellow cast members, though, are clearly inexperienced, and can't do a thing with the uninspiring dialogue he has written for them. As one of the newcomers to watch in the film world, here is hoping that Fessenden comes to realize his next foray will require more emphasis on content and less on presentation. I did like the titles, though. QUEER QUOTIENT: Snaider's beauty is interesting: a cross between k. d. lang and Demi Moore. Very androgynous and I'm sure appealing to lesbian viewers. At one point, she even tries to seduce one of Fessenden's female friends. But, don't get your hopes up: the steamy scenes are all heterosexual, feeding us the old cinematic clich of woman-bare-naked, man-mostly-covered-up. Oo, that's really going against the mainstream.
