Winning Best Foreign Film at numerous film festivals around the world, itís no wonder how the Swedish romantic-horror film Let The Right One In (dir. Tomas Alfredson) has received so much critical acclaim, as well as given Hollywood the rights to remaking it, shortly after itís release.
The narrative of the film is character-driven by the two protagonists, with the film showing both Oskarís (Kare Hederbrant) and Eliís (Lina Leandersson) private lives and how that affects their relationship every time they meet each other.
The directorís choice of the story being told through the camera for most of the film was a daring move, but one which fits with the way the children are trying to express their emotions for one another in such an awkward way. Despite the lack of dialogue mainly being used for the secondary characters, Oskar and Eli do express emotionally to each other through speech over the course of the film and this is used as a device for the audience to know that the individual lives they have are being intertwined and share a closer relationship.
Some foreign films seem to make the horror films very poetic and beautifully crafted. The film uses itís colours and locations to make a very cold atmosphere and reflects from both the lives of the children and the small group of adults who are trying to find out who killed their friend in the miserable situation. But with the story also being a romantic genre as well, the locations are chosen in an isolated area so the attention can focus more on the two main characters when they appear on screen together and helps to make their relationship appear more special
The make up and special effects used in the film are very well done and stick to the beauty of the film well, considering the effects were used to show the horrific incidents to match the filmís visuals. Computer special effects in the film are not as good as most Hollywood films and appear quite corny, but the blood effects are used to a great degree to show the filmís graphic nature.
Overall, Let The Right One In is probably one of the best romantic films with itís unrushed pace and blend of horror to show the dangers of attraction for the main characters. One of the best and most beautifully crafted films to be released in modern cinema.
