Vienna, 1932. Count von Kozsnom has lost his thirst for life, and his marriage cooled centuries ago. Fortunately, Sigmund Freud is accepting new patients; the good doctor suggests the Count appease his vain wife by commissioning a portrait of her by his assistant, Viktor. But it’s Viktor’s headstrong girlfriend Lucy who most intrigues the Count, convinced she’s the reincarnation of his one true love. Soon, the whole crowd is a hilarious mess of mistaken identities and misplaced affections in this send-up of the vampire genre, proving that 500 years of marriage is enough.
"A seductive and hilarious take on vampire lore with a script and cast that nails the coffin tight.Very clever and crackling with intelligent humor and subtlety."
"Very funny tale of undead love. Director David Ruehm crafts this beautiful world with a master hand."
