Les Vampires

Show Summary

Les Vampires is a collection of ten short films directed by Louis Feuillade and lasting seven hours in total. Filmed in 1915, these are among the first and finest examples of Cinema and a treasure for film buffs. The films tell the story of a criminal organization known as the Vampires. Led by the gorgeous Irma Vep (Musidora), the gang seeks total control over the Paris' elite classes, but do not go unchecked. Aligning themselves against the Vampires is the reporter Philippe Gu''rande (Edouard Math'') and his sidekick Oscar Mazamette (Marcel L''vesque). The famed French actress Musidora shines as Irma Vep, who, although completely human, takes on a vampire like quality as the movie goes on. The character of Irma is the driving force of these films, taking on the role of chief strategist for the gang and often disguising herself to get it done. The role depicts such a powerful woman that it has been celebrated by many feminists through the years. Originally banned by the French police for glorifying crime, Les Vampires is now celebrated as one of the best films of all times. With English subtitles and restoration complete, American audiences are now able to enjoy this masterpiece.moreless
