Byzantium Trailer


Clara and Eleanor are a mother and daughter, born two centuries ago as vampires and surviving only on the blood of mortal beings. They escape to an English seaside town and are taken into an abandoned guesthouse by the owner, Noel. While Clara takes on a job as a lady of the night who drains the blood from her clients, Eleanor has dreams of being a writer, chronicling her life as a vampire in pages that she usually scatters in the wind. It isn't long before they are discovered, both by the mortal people of the town and by The Brotherhood; an all-male vampire organisation that seek to find and kill Clara. Eleanor meets a boy called Frank, who she develops feelings for and spills the secrets of her world to, angering her mother who fears for their safety. As knowledge of their existence spreads further and further, they are forced to confront their past and the deadly secrets that come with it.

"He Eats Small Animals?" Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal Has Arrived! (Trailer)


Thure Lindhardt

Thus far, Boris Rodriguez's new dark-comedy flick 'Eddie: The Sleeping Cannibal has won the Black Tulip Award at the Amsterdam Film Festival and the Grand Prize of European Fantasy Film at the Leeds International Film Festival. There's plenty of buzz around the film and we get our first look in a brand-new trailer.

The movie stars Thure Lindhardt as Lars Olaffsen, a once famous artist who loses inspiration and takes a teaching post in a very small Canadian town. There he meets Eddie, a mute man with mental health problems who Lars takes under his wing to impress an attractive colleague. The problem is, Eddie is a cannibal and feasts on the bodies of the small animals while sleepwalking.  When Lars discovers human remains near Eddie's home, he begins to use it as inspiration for a new set of masterpieces, though how far should he push it before turning Eddie into the cops? Though few have seen the movie, the Globe and Mail gave it a glittering review. "As far as it goes, Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal is a well-paced and calibrated blend of juicy gore and low-key comedy," said Liam Lacey. The Wall Street Journal called it "outrageous."

Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal Trailer


Lars Olafssen was once famous in the art world for his breath-taking paintings. However, as his life has progressed, he has lost inspiration and his art dealer Ronny has found him a teaching post at a school in the very small Canadian town of Koda Lake. It is there he meets Eddie; a quiet but mute man with mental problems who the school lets hang around on account that his aunt is their most important patron. In a bid to impress his attractive young colleague Leslie, Lars takes him under his wing and becomes his caregiver despite Leslie telling him that he suffers from a sleepwalking condition whereby he seeks out and eats small animals whilst in slumber following a traumatic childhood event. He soon discovers, however, that is isn't just small animals he's feasting on when he finds human remains near his home. Rather than feeling frightened and wanting to stay away from Eddie, he uses his cannibalism as inspiration for a new set of masterpieces but just how far will he take it?

Keep the Lights On Review


Excellent

Director-cowriter Sachs takes an unusually intimate look at a 10-year relationship in this beautifully shot and performed New York drama. The film has been compared to 2011's British break-out hit Weekend, but only partly because it centres on a gay couple. What makes both films notable is the way they tackle serious issues in the context of a relationship, keeping the focus tightly on complex characters who behave like real people we can identify with.

The story starts in 1998 New York, as aspiring Danish documentary filmmaker Erik (Lindhardt) fails to overcome his loneliness by using chat-lines to meet random strangers for sex. Then he meets the lawyer Paul (Booth), and their encounter evolves into a relationship. Over the next decade, Paul is frustrated by Erik's casual approach to his slow-developing career, while Erik becomes increasingly worried about Paul's casual drug use. As this boils over into full-on addiction, Erik turns to his sister (Steen) and his close friend Claire (Nicholson) for help with an intervention. But are drugs the real problem? And even if Paul goes through rehab, can their relationship survive?

Intriguingly, Sachs never lets this turn into a drug-addiction drama, carefully exploring much deeper issues without ever being preachy about it. Everything is presented as matter-of-fact, just part of life, and even the addiction problem is only an obstacle for Erik and Paul to deal with in their life together. Both Lindhardt and Booth bring a stunning transparency to their roles, keeping the characters likeable even when they do awful things to each other. Since we see everything through Erik's eyes, Lindhardt's role is much beefier, and it's also infused with his European sense of humour.
