This is a Vampire movie. One of those movies where we have a "man made" vampire. At first neither we nor the vampire know what rule set vampires have to follow. Are they allergic to garlic? Can they eat food? Can sunlight kill them? Et cetera, et cetera. You know the basic rules of survival that most creatures whether it be plant or animal are born with or learn from their parents. To throw a monkey wrench into all those things is the fact that the vampire that was created is a priest. Talk about an identity crisis. Whew!!!
This is a standard three act movie. The first act deals with his relative facts of his pre-vampire life, his vampire origins, his formative vampire period, and the first three stages or grief at the lost of his mortal life. The second act deals with the final two stages or grief of being a vampire and how he "integrates" being a vampire with the life of being a priest. The third and final act deals with redemption and how to reconcile his past and make right mistakes of that have occurred within acts one and two.
Final thoughts: Not exactly what I expected, but still enjoyable.
