Synopsis:
Catalan maverick auteur Albert Serra has established himself as one of the boldest and most unique voices in contemporary cinema, with his beguiling work often drawing on the history of literature and art. Winner of the prestigious Golden Leopard award for Best Film at Locarno, 'Story of My Death' is a baroque reflection on pleasure and erotic desire dramatised from an imagined meeting between the ageing Casanova and Count Dracula. Serra's deliciously eccentric film mines history to blend the mythical with the everyday, charting the clash between an eighteenth century of rationalism and sensuality against a nineteenth century founded upon repression and violence.

Chiaroscuro - Story of my Death review by KL

Spoiler Alert
27/02/2016

This film seems imbued with chiaroscuro; fascinated by the space between the dark and the light. Casanova as an Epicurean and a rationalist relishes life and endlessly describes experience. Dracula (who incidentally resembles a weird hedgehog) is primal and atavisitic moving simply from whispers to guttural howls. Both tempt. On the cusp of the cycle of life into death and back again ...
