A young woman vampire who is unable to kill to satiate her need for blood may have found a solution in a young man with suicidal tendencies. French-Canadian Ariane Louis-Seize’s feature film debut is an airy comedy with gothic undertones.

Genre: horror, comedy, fantasy
Language: French, subtitles: English

Sasha is a young vampire with a serious problem: she's too sensitive to kill. When her exasperated parents cut off her blood supply, Sasha's life is in jeopardy. Luckily, she meets Paul, a lonely teenager with suicidal tendencies who is willing to give his life to save hers. But their friendly agreement soon becomes a nocturnal quest to fulfill Paul's last wishes before day breaks.

This coming-of-age story shows the ethical dilemmas that touch friendship, consent, and death. The tables seem turned due to the shift in gender roles. 

The film clinched 17 awards and garnered 9 more nominations, including the prestigious Young Cineastes Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival, along with 4 wins at the Venice Film Festival.

Ariane Louis-Seize's debut is a stylish if schematic riff on the angsty-vampire subgenre that, like its heroine, hardly ever shows its fangs. – Variety

“A horror-comedy with bite and heart.” Mashable

“Louis-Seize strikes a disarming tone, sort of like a young adult comic book with a slight '90s vibe.” Filmkrant
