The new Jim Jarmusch movie was presented a few days ago, during the 54th Thessaloniki International Film Festival. The director actually visited the festival and gave a very much anticipated press conference and amongst others, he discussed his new movie, his love for music and he also talked about Greek cinema. He referred to Christos Konstantakopoulos, co-producer of «Only Lovers Left Alive» and stated that he would prefer to see a Greek low budget film, rather than the «Great Gatsby».
His new film, is a «metropolitan fairytale» that talks about hip vampires, is full of rock and roll music, night rides in the city and with a Tilda Swinton.. to die for!
A man and a woman wonder the empty city streets at night. They only face the world in the dark, as they are vampires and therefore unable to face the sun light. They wonder between Morocco and Detroit, trying to find a place to settle and continue their everlasting ride. One thing remains indisputable: their undying love.
Tilda Swinton & Tom Hiddleston are the two metropolitan dandy vampires that love music, philosophy, science and rock and roll, feed only from pure hospital blood, love to ride their vintage cars under the moonlight, wear dark glasses, listen to vinyl records and love the sound of guitars..
The critics say that what makes this vampire movie somehow different than the others of the genre, is the director himself: 4 years of waiting for a new Jarmush film, was too long and his version of the vampire myth is everything but conventional!
The film’s deep romantic feeling, the stylish heroes, the undoubtful coolness and the clever sense of humor makes it instantly lovable.
Looking forward to seeing it on the big screen! Until then, here's the official trailer & a clip from the film.
Ever since I first set foot on a cinema theatre, I knew that something magical was happening there....
