Let The Right One In (2008)

"Let The Right One In" aka "Låt den rätte komma in" is quite simply, a breathtaking tale. This complex tale of innocence and romance would not be quite the type of movie you would be expecting, I guarantee you. There are strong elements of horror and violence and depending on how you interpret it, it could be an even more horrific experience. "Let The Right One In" was a very unique experience for me. It was surreal yet real, beautiful yet terrifying. By the time I was at the end, I was surrounded by extremely strong feelings that brought tears to my eyes. At that time, I was perplexed as to why I almost cried for the ending was not a sad or happy one. It took me some time to realize it was because of the overwhelming sensation the film invoked. This film boasts such incredible depth and originality that it is impossible not to recommend. While I am not trying to sound as if I am on a superior pedestal, this film does take a certain level of understanding to appreciate. I do hope if someone dislikes this film, it would not be because that person did not "get it".
