Well I enjoyed this x A horror ballet x Well performed x May not have the gore and scariness of a typical horror film but was very different and enjoyable x A pleasure to watch x A love of ballet of course helped swing my vote xxx
Is this the best ever adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel? Quite possibly.
Read my review here:
If you wanted to film a staged ballet, this is the way to do it: Hire Guy Maddin! The Canadian filmmaker rips apart the footage (Super 8 and other formats) and edits it back together in a delirious montage, processing it to one inch from death (or beyond -- this is the story of Dracula, after all) so that it looks like a silent film with faux tinting in phantastic colors with blurry edges and stark contrast. A few sustained dances creep in but this is largely an exercise in assemblage. The well-known story is given a few tweaks and it doesn't hurt that it takes place in the Victorian era, a Maddin specialty.
Starring Wei-Qiang Zhang
The story of Dracula seems to work well with Guy Maddin's unique artistic talents.
Bram Stokers Dracula performed through music and dance. Bored me to tears and I fell asleep. Rubbish.
Released in 2002.The Dracula story is given the Ballet Treatment in this visual feast.It is acted entirely with ballet performers and filmed using techniques employed usually in silent films. This combination of factors gives the film a rather unique feel, a merging of classic formula with postmodern styling and on top of that it is very faithful to Bram Stoker's book,a very intriguing film,do check it out,found it a bit odd though that Dracula is Played by an asian actor,but then again Christopher Lee played Fu Manchu 3 times.
This had so much potential, and I do love ballet. It fell short, unfortunately.
Dracula hecho ballet y filmado como cine mudo. Aburridisimo.
