Only lovers left alive

Only lovers left alive

Jarmusch takes the vampire genre to a new level with this hyper-literate mélange of science, literature, music, history and deadpan humour. In idiosyncratic and intensely curated style, Only Lovers Left Alive tells the tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires; Adam, a reclusive underground musician hiding out in the ruins of contemporary Detroit with an impressive guitar collection and Eve (Tilda Swinton), his spirited art-loving paramour. When Ava (Eve’s sister played by Mia Wasikowsa) returns to their lives, trouble follows closely behind.
