I had seen the Godfather, City Lights and 2001 by the timeI was nine years old so I know a thing or two about great movies. And this film is a masterpiece starting from the opening music. A work of poetry, funny dark and tragic all at the same time. Superb acting, dialogue, direction, artwork, everything. An homage to  Murnau' Nosferatu sometime quoting his aesthetics and camera angles, yet a totally originally work of ist own. Open your (third) eyes people.  Just take the scene where the vampire look into the camera lens to see the sun for the first time in 1000 years. Incredibly powerful and moving!
