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.

Fantastic vampire movie... One of 2008's best films. Too bad the distributor can't get the transfer to Bluray right. I ordered this twice, and both times the bluray was defective (no sound during the movie!) I've also heard the reports of different subtitles from the theatre release. I am going to wait until they fix all the deficiencies before I buy this again.

To answer some questions as to the subtitles, the Canadian and US dvds of Let The Right One In are identical save for perhaps different trailers and logos on the dvd case. The subtitles are wrong on both releases. The original theatrical release had the correct subtitles, they have been changed for this dvd and they do not make sense. So I would also suggest that you do NOT buy this until this has been fixed. The subtitles make watching the film a confusing mess. There is an English audio dub on the film included and the original correct English translated script was used buy the voice actors for the dub, however the dub is horrible (adults dubbing childrens voices) One of the most important aspects of this film is the fact that the two main characters sometimes secretly communicate with one another using morse code. When they tap morse code to each other there is no translation to what they are saying in the subtitles and obviously not on the English dub either. The film gets 4 stars, this dvd version gets 0.
