Product Description

Product Description

Oscar, a 12-year-old fragile and bullied boy, finds love and revenge through Eli, a beautiful but peculiar girl he befriends, who moves into his building.   When Oscar discovers that Eli is a vampire it does not deter his increasing feelings and confused emotions of a young adolescent.  When Eli loses the man who protects and provides for her, and as suspicions are mounting from her neighbors and police she must move on to stay alive.  However when Oscar faces his darkest hour, Eli returns to defend him the only way she can.

Amazon.ca

The enduring popularity of the vampire myth rests, in part, on sexual magnetism. In Let the Right One In, Tomas Alfredson's carefully controlled, yet sympathetic take on John Ajvide Lindqvist's Swedish bestseller-turned-screenplay, the protagonists are pre-teens, unlike the fully-formed night crawlers of HBO's True Blood or Catherine Hardwicke's Twilight (both also based on popular novels). Instead, 12-year-old Oskar (future heartbreaker Kåre Hedebrant) and Eli (Lina Leandersson) enter into a deadly form of puppy love. The product of divorce, Oskar lives with his harried mother, while his new neighbor resides with a mystery man named Håkan (Per Ragnar) who takes care of her unique dietary needs. From the wintery moment in 1982 that the lonely, towheaded boy spots the strange, dark-haired girl skulking around their outer-Stockholm tenement, he senses a kindred spirit. They bond, innocently enough, over a Rubik's Cube, but little does Oskar realize that Eli has been 12 for a very long time. Meanwhile, at school, bullies torment the pale and morbid student mercilessly. Through his friendship with Eli, Oskar doesn't just learn how to defend himself, but to become a sort of predator himself, begging the question as to whether Eli really exists or whether she represents a manifestation of his pent-up anger and resentment. Naturally, the international success of Lindqvist's fifth feature, like Norway's chilling Insomnia before it, has inspired an American remake, which is sure to boast superior special effects, but can't possibly capture the delicate balance he strikes here between the tender and the terrible. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

A word of warning to those who saw this film in theatres and are interested in purchasing - this release has subtitles that were drastically altered from that original (and correct) version. The company has admitted as much and will be re-issuing the film with the proper subtitles included, but so far have not offered any recourse for those who have already purchased.

I would advise anyone wishing to own this movie to wait until the corrected version is released, and to voice their displeasure to the studio that no indication was made on the packaging or in press releases that any such changes had occurred.

Format: DVD
Vampire movies tend to come in two flavours -- either they're gory bloodsucker actionfests, or celebrations of goth hotties tortured by their immortality.

But "Let The Right One In" is neither kind or story. Instead this haunting, atmospheric Swedish movie is a poignant look at a very unique friendship between a young boy and a vampire child. Brilliant acting and a sort of pale, ghostly directorial style make this a vivid experience, but the brilliance is in the story itself.

One winter night, Oskar (Kare Hedebrant) sees a car drop off his two new neighbors. He doesn't pay much attention at first, since he's always either ignored or bullied.

But as he vents his frustrations by stabbing a tree, he sees the ghostly, rumpled Eli (Lina Leandersson), who informs him, "Just so you know, I can't be your friend." She turns out to be as much of an oddball as Oskar -- especially since she only ventures out at night, smells a bit funny, and is unaffected by the winter cold. But despite her odd greeting, the two strike up a friendship.

At the same time, a series of brutal murders are taking place all around town -- and it's no great shock that Eli's companion Hakan (Per Ragnar) is harvesting blood for Eli. Being no idiot, Oskar realizes that Eli is a bona fide vampire, and doesn't intend to let that get in the way of their puppy love. Yet when Hakan's errands go horribly awry, Oskar finds himself to be the only person Eli can rely on.

It's no great exaggeration to say that "Let the Right One In" is undoubtedly the best vampire movie made in many years. While the movie has plenty of more violent moments and a snowy backdrop, director Tomas Alfredson is far more focused on the sweet, eerie relationship between two lonely, otherworldly young children.

I ordered this on october 15th 2010 to hopefully get the version with the english theatrical subtitles. I have the first version and didn't know until very recently about the crummy english subtitles because I never got around to watching my blu-ray since seeing the movie at Fantasia 2008. Indeed, the version I got yesterday is the corrected one, which says on the back cover, next to Subtitles: English (theatrical), Spanish. So for anybody still wondering if amazon.ca ships the good version, its seems they do. Also, the blu-ray still also has the mediocre subtitles, so you can compare between the good and bad ones.

Ce film fait du bien. Oubliez la violence gratuite. Ici, c'est le cycle de la vie. Il ramène le film de vampire à sa source. Le vampire tue parce qu'il a faim, par pour donner un spectacle. Les vampires et les simples humains sont inséparables de par leur nature et c'est un amour viscéral qui les unis, parfois jusque dans la mort... mais toujours et inévitablement, au-delà! (Je ne vends pas la mèche ici, c'est une réflexion purement philosophique!) Les acteurs principaux sont prodigieux. Le rythme donne tout le temps nécessaire pour savourer les instants, les émotions des personnages et les images fortes et soignées qui s'offrent à nous.
La nature, l'obscurité, l'hiver et ses forces impitoyables sous un calme et un amour infini qui sert de décor au récit, rappelle le personnage de Eli la petite vampire, enfant, frêle en apparence mais capable d'une violence inouïe à ses heures. Il en va de même pour la rivière gelée, toujours rassurante en apparence mais avec le risque que la glace se dérobe sous nos pieds à tout instant. Vraiment génial.

Aussi, peu de film dépeigne si fidèlement et intensément ce qu'est la cruauté crue de l'enfance.
Deux étoiles sur cinq pour des sous-titres anglais mauvais? C'est n'importe quoi! Ce film est un petit chef-d'oeuvre du cinéma d'horreur. Un classique à placer près de votre coeur. Un Conte pour tous sanglant (donc pas pour tous) et à la facture soignée. Touchant et envoûtant. Dix étoiles sur cinq!

(En souhaitant quand même de meilleurs sous-titres à ceux qui ne comprennent que l'anglais...)
