238 – Let the Right One In (2008)

"Um,excuse me,i asked for a non-smoking room"

“Um,excuse me,i asked for a non-smoking room”

Now this films a treat,a real gem.I don’t think this is on many peoples radar because it’s Swedish but as it’s just been remade in America,i think this year,so maybe some people will want to see the original and if i know America and it’s remakes of Euro art-house films it’ll suck (i.e. Funny Games).The story is an adaptation of a novel of the same name.Let the right one tells a tale of prepubescent love between a boy and a vampire.There’s not a lot of dialogue in this film , you could probably fit it all on the back of a beermat.And it’s the fact that it doesn’t spoon feed you that leaves you with questions at the end.When i first watched it i didn’t have a clue about the nude bit with Eli.I didn’t even twig that Eli was a boy.Sure I’m just after spoiling the film but there’s other shit i still haven’t figured out entirely yet.I’ll give it another year and re-watch it and see what i come up with then.

P.S. notable scene: the cats hating on the old woman.
