Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - - - - - - - - «Vampyrer is a gritty and realistic urban drama that follows the nocturnal exploits of two vampire sisters, Vanja and Vera, as they troll the streets of Stockholm. Similar in execution to Tomas Alfredson's already classic, Let the Right One In, the film is heavy on realism and big on ideas but, unfortunately, just can't seem to pull it together in the story department. Also, for a film that wants to be a thriller it doesn't really have many thrills. Despite its meandering (and sort of boring) plot however, Vampyrer still manages to exploit vampire mythology to explore philosophical ideas about modern dislocation and living on the fringes in a unique way. Vampyre takes place all in one night. It starts in a dingy underground club where we're introduced to Vera and Vanja, two sisters who also happen to be vampires - not that you'd know it to look at them. They sort of look like a couple of university grads who wandered into the wrong part of town. Of course, when one of them takes a biker as a would-be lover and drains him faster than you can say resis negative, you know that these girls can take care of themselves. What follows this kill is a night of wandering and running from the revenge seeking biker gang. The biggest part of the story involves Vanja and Vera disagreeing on the idea of to trying and integrate into the "normal," human, population. Where Vera sees a life of mundane sameness, Vanja sees an opportunity to escape a nomadic and lonely lifestyle. Is this a metaphor for the decision every young adult must face. To become a yupie or not to become a yuppie? Maybe. I've heard the name Heidegger uttered in regards to this film as well. However, it could also just be a dramatic device used to create tension between the girls. Vampyrer might not be the most exciting vampire film ever but as an fable about making tough life decisions it presents some interesting ideas. It also comes in at a running time of about 60 minutes so it at least knows not to overstay its welcome. Bottom line? Vamyrer is a well made film with an intriguing premise that's just not that engaging as entertainment».
