  1. After an accident in Romania, the native land of his girlfriend, ALEX (Yannick Rosset) received a blood transfusion in this country. Back home he starts noticing some strange changes in his body and also hallucinations when he watches himself on the mirror. At first sight he thinks it's just delusions but then a weird appetite for blood appears…

    CHIMÈRES is a modern tale of vampirism. It follows the same lines of the traditional vampire story but it's passed nowadays, with some new elements. It's also a story of love and altruism, so in that point of view, I didn't appreciate too much that ending of revenge.

    It's beautifully shot and has nice scenes of suspense and a good soundtrack, effective to create tension! I score it 7/10.

  2. This was a pleasure to watch, beautifully shot, great scenery, and superlatively acted both Jasna and Yannick had breakthrough performances. Since neither the title nor the trailer gave the film away you could enjoy the evolution of the film from the typical young couple in love's holiday or vacation. To a horrible accident and then slow recovery or metamorphosis or does Alexandre just need to be locked away in an asylum? Regardless, Livia never abandons him but instead tries first to help him then joins him in his new life. Her fight scenes weren't done by stunt doubles it was really Jasna performing. Her beauty and even sex scene seemed real and organic with out being gratuitous. Oliver Beguin has arrived and I only hope he gives us many more treats like this in his career. His homage to angel heart isn't lost. No it was not a Blade or Carrie homage although that would have been fine too. It was Angel Heart that grabbed him as a youngster and now he pays tribute. What a fun film!
