Review

The enduring popularity of the vampire myth rests, in part, on sexual magnetism. In Let the Right One In, Tomas Alfredson''s carefully controlled, yet sympathetic take on John Ajvide Lindqvist''s Swedish bestseller-turned-screenplay, the protagonists are pre-teens, unlike the fully-formed night crawlers of HBO’s True Blood or Catherine Hardwicke’s Twilight (both also based on popular novels). Instead, 12-year-old Oskar (future heartbreaker Kåre Hedebrant) and Eli (Lina Leandersson) enter into a deadly form of puppy love. The product of divorce, Oskar lives with his harried mother, while his new neighbor resides with a mystery man named Håkan (Per Ragnar), who takes care of her unique dietary needs. From the wintery moment in 1982 that the lonely, towheaded boy spots the strange, dark-haired girl skulking around their outer-Stockholm tenement, he senses a kindred spirit. They bond, innocently enough, over a Rubik''s Cube, but little does Oskar realize that Eli has been 12 for a very long time. Meanwhile, at school, bullies torment the pale and morbid student mercilessly. Through his friendship with Eli, Oskar doesn''t just learn how to defend himself, but to become a sort of predator himself, begging the question as to whether Eli really exists or whether she represents a manifestation of his pent-up anger and resentment. Naturally, the international success of Lindqvist''s fifth feature, like Norway''s chilling Insomnia before it, has inspired an American remake, which is sure to boast superior special effects, but can''t possibly capture the delicate balance he strikes here between the tender and the terrible. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Release Note

Oscar, a 12-year-old fragile and bullied boy, finds love and revenge through Eli, a beautiful but peculiar girl he befriends, who moves into his building.   When Oscar discovers that Eli is a vampire it does not deter his increasing feelings and confused emotions of a young adolescent.  When Eli loses the man who protects and provides for her, and as suspicions are mounting from her neighbors and police she must move on to stay alive.  However when Oscar faces his darkest hour, Eli returns to defend him the only way she can.

5 out of 5 stars Beautiful movie Horrible "new" subtitles., May 20, 2009
By Yoga Punguin
Some of you may be wondering if those who are complaining about the bad subtitles are exaggerating. They are not! I am listening to the English language 5.1 audio and just discovered theyre reading the original "good" theatrical subtitles. They make many scenes much more sensible. If you want to experience complete frustration, play the English 5.1 audio with the English subtitles on. You will understand why there is so much anger. The bad subtitles really do change and/or ruin some scenes. Unfortunately, some of the English language voice work does not do the justice, so listening to the Swedish and reading the original subs would be ideal. But you cant!!! What a shame! This is the sweetest yet most haunting film Ive seen in years. I dont want to admit how many times Ive watched it the past eight days. But... this is a very quiet, slow movie. If you expect a lot of screaming and bloody fangs, youre in the wrong place. This is basically a love story... with moments of real horror and dread. Plus some understated but eerie special effects. Theyre not flashy, just effective. This movie makes you believe there might actually be vampires lurking about. Speaking of love: thats what I feel for this. Love the movie hate the subtitles debacle. Again: If you want to hear the theatrical subtitles being read, listen to the English language 5.1 audio. (I am using the 5.1 English audio. I cant vouch for 2.0. They may have botched that.) Im hoping this situation wont lead to a Catch-22: Theyll release DVDs with the original subtitles AFTER the pressing with the "bad" subtitles is sold out. But few people want the bad subtitles! Are we going to be stuck with the incomprehensible English subs? Stay tuned horror/romance fans... Oh... make sure you watch until the closing credits start or you may miss an important last scene. Enjoy. This is a real gem. I wonder if this is the type of movie that inspires people to make movies? I love the understatement of this movie. No screaming and running around. A gentle, sympathetic vampire movie? Thats what this is. I cant stop thinking this is the type of movie that inspires others to make movies but Im afraid the American remake will be much louder and bloodier. Is this a minor masterpiece? Even the very effective special effects are subtle but eerie. They dont have to pound you over the head, Hollywood! How can they improve on the girl walking barefoot in the snow or her stomach growling (slightly) when she smells blood? The silent but unsettling way she climbs trees and buildings? Im afraid Hollywood will have her snarl, growl, and moan loudly when the boy slits his palm. Hopefully, theyll prove me wrong but dont bet the rent on it. This makes most other bloodsucker flicks seem lurid and grotesque.
