A Nocturne


A Nocturne is a Melbourne based vampire philosophical drama about two vampires, a male and a female apparently called X and Z (although I don't remember this) who roam the streets of Melbourne looking for their next victim and find one. They being her back to their abandoned warehouse and feast on her with a cannibal who recites arcane poetry and Vee, a woman they turned into a vampire. After the feast, they meet their French mentor who tells them that the path they are leading is not the one to the 'transcendence' they are looking for. Dismayed by this, they wander the streets in a daze until a tragedy occurs. Well, I hope that's clear. Now, can you tell me what it all means because I am at a loss. There are two quotes from Nietzsche bookending the film and there is a vibe that all is futile throughout, but my feeble mind just doesn't understand it at all. And I'm surprised Troma are involved with the distribution as this seems a little heavier than their usual low budget fare.

I tried...
