136. October 20/24, 2010 - Let the Right One In (2008)

Swedish cinema has a certain feel to it. The color palette is often very pale and gray (though I suppose that may have something to do with the fact that 90% of the time, it's snowy) and, regardless of the details, the story seems bleak. Even this, which definitely adds an element of horror (what with the blood-drinking 12-year-old), still has that hopeless, empty air. The two child actors are very effective, especially the boy with his platinum blonde hair and ice blue eyes. I'm very curious to see how the American version is later this week.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
