"IT LOOKS LIKE AN ART-HOUSE FILM HAS BEEN FROZEN INTO STILLS"

"Vladracul"

"It is an enormous project that took two years to prepare, four years to shoot and
four years to develop. The modern-day allegorical spin on the Bram Stoker's "Dra-
cula" takes the form of a photo-novel and offers a retrospective of Germany in the
20th Century. It's looks like an art-house film has been frozen into stills and
splashed over the walls. De Brest has engineered this project like a film producer
would: using actors (his friends and some of Berlin's more bohemian characters),
make-up artists and costume designers and shot on locations from Berlin's tech-
no clubs to former communist factories and concentration camp in poland. Told in
12 chapters.

De Brest's camera picks up a vivid blue sky and an entrance gate that looks like
a scene from a Western. The layers of reference are endless, it's full of homage
to film people, film stars, film scenes."
