▪A girl walks home alone at night (2014) is an American Vampire film directed by Ana Lily Amirpour. This film was tagged as the first Iranian vampire western movie. The story of this movie takes place in an Iranian ghost Town ‘Bad City’ where there is no law or rules and is infamous for its frequent deaths and loneliness. The protagonist in this movie ‘The girl’ is a lonely vampire who roams around the bad city at night . She is not like the usual vampires we saw in movies and has a special propaganda for selecting people for her feedings. One night she met a young man who is in financial and personal crisis and develops a relationship with him.
▪This movie is not everyone’s cup of tea and to be viewed as a movie with artistic values. This movie is shot in black and white and brilliantly uses background music and songs which gives a different feel to it. This movie is not scary , which was actually not intended here. This movie brilliantly picturized a vampire love story , in a never before seen way ,by efficiently using black & white frames and background music with good support from the lead actors.
🔹AMAZING CINEMA RATING : 3.5/5
