    "Money! Stolen from England!"

    I like the way this film emphasises the "Fear of the Other" subtext that undlerlies the Dracula story, making clear that Dracula represents fears of foreigners coming to steal our women and money. It is also the only Dracula adaptation that includes the moment from the novel where spoiler.

    The ballet aspect is less impressive, as the choice of having a lot of fast cuts and close-ups takes away from the technical feat of the dancing.

    Ambitious mix (Dracula + ballet + silent film) but an original layout that reveals itself to be more appropriate for the stage than the screen.

    Read more in French on La Saveur des goûts amers.
