I finally been able to watch last night A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night of the Iranian Ana Lily Amirpour and this is now one of my favorite vampire movie along with the Swedish ‘Let the right one in’.
Both share the same type of human/vampire relationship but the association stops here, as the genre is very different. Let the right one in is based on a novel, with a very dark and a more complex storyline where A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night is more visual, and the (very good) music is a dialogue by itself.
So, yes, this movie is real weird piece of art. Visually beautiful, the director mixed spaghetti westerns, graphic novels, horror movie, film noirs and it works!
I try to figure it out how to describe the movie, but it is all about the atmosphere, its strange characters, the numerous references (James Dean mixed with New wave pop, the dealer is a real Die Antwoort look alike, the streets similar to a Paul Strand’s photograph…).
So, if you can, watch this movie, you won’t regret it and probably will start listening rock sang in Farsi!
