This idiosyncratic take on the genre is as much concerned with ordinary family dynamics as the absurdity of its characters' demonic existence.

An experimental triumph, Nadja revamps the Dracula fable by centring the action on Drac's alluring daughter Nadja. Propelled by some decidedly off-kilter… More

the most poetic vampire film I have ever seen. Beautiful, emotional, raw, engaging, and vastly under-seen and under-rated.
