Nordic Bleakness with an Uplifting Twist

Ethereal, bleak, enchanting, understated, shocking, bloody, romantic and beautifully filmed, Let the Right One in is all that a great Swedish film should be. Kare Hedebrant who plays Oskar is mesmerising; a gentle, innocent, 'different' child, as white as the perpetual snow that covers the landscape throughout this movie. Wild horses wouldn't normally drag me to watch a 'vampire movie' and yet the vampire theme in LTROI is almost peripheral to the central themes of loneliness, isolation, bullying and the gentle (well, sometimes brutal) unfolding of first love. The adult characters, although numerous, often belligerent or sometimes just plain bizarre, fade like shadows into the background, so strong is the presence of Oskar, Eli (played by Linda Leandersson), and their brutish peers. ...

Let the Right One In review

Oskar (Kåre Hedebrant) is a 12 year old who gets bullied most of the time at school. He meets a strange girl named Eli (Lina Leandersson). Mysterious murders occur in their town while the pair of youngsters bond. Soundtrack was almost unnecessary to bring out the needed chilling effect brought by the subtle direction. Performances were sincere to keep you connected with the characters which makes you feel apart of their estranged relationship. The style of direction was spectacular for its genre. It's pace was questionable though doesn't ruin the picture completely as to make the cinematography picturesque. Le the Right One is definitely better than its remake and eons ahead from other vampire related flicks because of its subjects of acceptance, bullying and love.

Sweet, Sad, and Scary!

“I'm twelve. But I've been twelve for a long time.”

Oskar, a bullied 12-year old, dreams of revenge. He falls in love with Eli, a peculiar girl who tells him 'You would like to kill if you could, but I kill because I have to'. She can't stand the sun or food and to come into a room she needs to be invited. Eli gives Oskar the strength to hit back but when he realizes that Eli needs to drink other people's blood to live he's faced with a choice. How much can love forgive? Let The Right One In is a story both violent and highly romantic. I liked the fact that the main characters were both young children, who were still vulnerable but played the part in keeping their childish ways. As we watch their relationship grow, we become more fascinated as to what will happen. The story itself is ...

I saw a lot of previews at independent theaters for it.  Looked interesting to me...much better than most American vamp movies.

I'd rather watch this than "Twilight." Fortunately, it's playing on the small theater at UCI. Maybe I'll check it out this weekend.

I didn't think i'd be excited about this one either, but I've heard some good things. It's a Swedish movie! And apparently it's not exactly horror, but it's about vampires. Should be interesting, but I will wait for more feedback before actually seeing it.

Yeah, just checked it out, thanks! I'm also excited about this because the Twilight trailers look, um, well, crap-tastic. If I have to spend 10-15 bucks on a vampire flick I'll go with Let the Right One In. =)
