Two female vampires wreak havoc on an unsuspecting English seaside community in this deliciously depraved supernatural drama from Oscar-winner Neil Jordan (Interview with the Vampire). Introverted Eleanor (Saoirse Ronan) and the outgoing Clara (Gemma Arterton) both carry secrets from deep in their shared past—all 200 years of it. As knowledge of their secret spreads, their past catches up to them with deathly consequence.
Une vampire fait de sa propre fille une créature de la nuit, avec qui elle s'associe pour chasser ses proies. Les deux femmes se faisant passer pour deux soeurs pour faire tomber dans leurs bras, et sous leurs crocs, les hommes.

Byzantium was made in Ireland in 2012 and the lower budget non-Hollywood approach works in its favor. The plot makes more sense, the main characters are more "believable", the acting is superior, there's limited but effective special effects. The vampires are more low key and not all-powerful beings, they can't fly, etc. I think Byzantium succeeds are doing what all those others attempt to do... place interesting day-walking vampires with their own back stories in the modern world.
The blu-ray looks fantastic and there are several bonus features on the making of the film, as well as interviews with the cast. It's worthy of repeated viewings. Enjoy :)
[Both version] American and the Swedish, that a movie could give you more interaction with the Human element
living or dead, the story is about two sister, one who's trying to find her identity the other who's very carefree,
and wreaking havoc across the English countryside with deadly consequences, to the perpetrator and the foe,
and the men who's trying to kill them, because of the male dominance within the clan,
Clara [Gemma Arterton] and Eleanor [Saoirse Ronan] was very outstanding in the movie, what I like about
the movie, it's not high on special effects like Underworld, like jumping off of a tall building and landing on your feet,
it just stick to the facts of being real to us, that we know about, Vampires always bite you on the neck or stick a fingernail
into you to get their blood, I think everybody who loves Vampire movies will love this,
and another thing I love about the movie, it's not trying to scare the crap out of you at all, plus they walk day and night..
5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.
Runtime 118 minutes.
