A visually beautiful comedy where the laughs run as freely as the blood.

Bored of spending eternity with his current wife, the vampire Count Geza von Közsnöm seeks assistance from Dr Sigmund Freud. Meanwhile, the Count’s wife is in despair because she can’t see her own beauty in the mirror. A young painter is seemingly part of the solution, but his girlfriend’s likeness to the Count’s long-lost love is a dangerous new problem. A genre piece executed with the look and charm of a Jean-Pierre Jeunet production.
