Every so often Netflix presents a ‘less common’ film. Here we have a brand new vampire film that looks like a century-old one, but not entirely.
The Count from the title has been around for 250 years and is done with living. We quickly go through his time during the French revolution and how he ended up in South America. There is lives out his life on a island with his personnel. When his children get the idea that there is a prospect to inheritance, they go and visit.
“El Conde” is a gritty, quirky comedy which combines old Dracula style filming and more modern elements. There are amusing characters, strange situations and a ‘meandering story’. The result is an amusing film.
