This movie is my abolute favourite. I watch it aprox. once per month, and never get tired of it. The gothic technique which Coppola used to emphasise the haunting and chilling ambient is breathtaking. In this movie Vlad is not the evil villain as in so many other adaptations, here he is a victim, a victim of love and passion. Coppola created a sad but sublime Vlad Tepes in a way never shown. The emphasis lies on the love-theme, which was originally meant by Bram Stoker. If you haven't seen this one, which I honestly doubt, watch it and you will be drowned in a world of love, passion and sublime romance.
