Once in a while, as a way of escaping repetition in the genres, someone uses their talent to subtly invent new parameters, as though they were trying to start a new phase. This is one of those films: a vampire movie which turns horror into novelty. The formula is to sweep out the cool and/or torture porn aesthetic from the latest exponents of the genre, and also the supremacy of CGI, to go back to something more visceral, leveling simplicity, tenderness and humor in just the right doses. But also the strange mix turns this journey to the intimacy of horror into something innovative: on the one hand, there’s a coming-of-age story crossed by a macabre children’s tale; on the other, there’s gore of the most direct kind, with a somewhat 80’s-style retro spirit, but also a film of rigorously planned sequences, with peaks of visual and narrative virtuosity. And all the artifice at the service of a bizarre love story between two twelve-year-old neighbors that burns like an erupting volcano. And although snow falls all the time over that little Swedish city where they live, there’s no way of cooling down that much passion.
