Shadow of the Vampire

Fortnight 2000, Feature film, 1h33

Synopsis

1921, somewhere in Eastern Europe. The German film director F. W. Murnau has just begun the exteriors of Nosferatu, a vampire tale inspired by Bram Stoker’s novel « Dracula ». A perfectionist and pioneering stylist, the young director has cast Max Schreck in the main role of the terrifying Count Orlock. Repeatedly disconcerted and frightened by the attitudes and methods of this « actor », the crew members, led by the brilliant artist, more or less play along with Schreck’s strange pranks…
