I could fall asleep...

With the warmth of you near me.

The sound of your heart sings.

Sings what?



[ phone ringing ]

Tomassini residence?

She's not available

at this moment,

Can I take a message?

Thank you.

It's really coming down.

I'm Paolo.


So do you live here?


My friend is doing

a play in the city,

So I'm staying in her house.

What about you?

I'm here writing a script.

They got me a house, to write.

You know, no distractions.

You're, what?



I translate poetry

and literature into

Different languages.

That sounds like a

pretty serious job.

It's practical.

I have a...Skin

condition...Where I can't be

Exposed to sunlight.

I' m sorry.

This place is huge.

No, go!

This was a mistake.

I'm sorry.

It's not a mistake.

I want you to leave.

I'm gonna leave, but I'm

gonna call you tomorrow.

No, don't call.


Please go.

Through phone:

Hey Paolo, it's donna.

I've been thinking a lot, and I

don't know why I said I needed

I was really happy

with the way things were.

It was stupid.

And I think that's

great, I really do.

Tomassini residence.

Madame is indisposed

until this evening.

May I take a message?


Very well, I'll let her know.

You should try some

of our other scotches.

We've got some great scotch.

You interested?

Yeah, sure.

Here you go.


What are you doing here?

Will you let me in?

I can't.

Is this about your illness?


Look, whatever it is you

have, I will deal with it.

Just let me in.


Let me in.



Get out!

Hey ben.

Hey, how's it comin'?

You love your house?

Alright, don't say I

don't take care of you.

I don't.

How's it coming, p?

I just started.

Of course it's gonna be great,

you're gonna knock this

I know you're not into violence,

but don't be afraid of it here.

It's the right thing.

I won't.

Feelin' good?




Paolo, where are you?



Hey, Paolo!



Paolo .

I'm comin' over.

Answer the door.

Come over here.

Feel my heart.

Find my heartbeat.

It's not there, Paolo.

I can't go in sunlight.

I drink the blood

of animals to live.

Do you understand

what I'm telling you?

You're telling me

you're a vampire?

Are you kidding me?

What do think

happened last night?

There's no such thing

as vampires, djuna.



I'll show you.

I'm not feeling

good about doing this.

There's nothing to worry about.

You're safe.

I can't hurt you this way.


It's happening!

Come here!

Come here!

Holy sh*t!

Keep your hands

away from my mouth!


Oh god.

Do you believe me now?

Look at me.




Let's make love.

Are you scared?


This is what had to happen.

I would have done anything to

be with you...However insane.

I know.

It's all insane.

And I know in my heart, it would

have been wrong to let you go.

For both of us.

My world belongs to you now.

I will teach you

everything I know.

Very closely knit.

Xenia, the actress who owns

this house, for example...

She designed it

for needs like ours.

Little things,

but very important.

And irene, the housekeeper...

She's got a rare blood

disorder, so she's not a

Temptation for us.

Her mother had it too, so

she's very highly valued.

Extremely loyal.

She looks after the house.

Keeps watch during the day.

You'll start to feel a

pressure in your lower back...

And that will turn

into a hunger...

And that hunger will

grow until you feed it.

And if you don't feed, that

hunger will turn into pain.

You can't let it get to that,

or you'll be out of control.

Will we live forever?

Chances are, we will.

But there are ways to die.



But we won't get older,

and we won't get sick.

And if we get hurt, we

heal almost right away.

It's a different reality.

But I know we can

have a normal life.

You and me.


Not here.

Not yet.


Let's go home.

So you can write those

screenplays you're

So crazy about.

Are you trying to

tell me something?

No, I'm trying to tell you

that maybe it's time to get your

Things and move in.

You got it all?


I'm happy.

I'm really happy, Paolo.

I made you coq au vin.

It smells incredible.

It turned out perfectly.

Can I say something?

Of course.

I just want to get it over with.


It feels weird that

it was so natural.

That it didn't bother me more.

I was surprised that

I knew what to do.

And feel how I've changed.

Even my vision.

What I see.

I can't believe how

much I was missing before.

Everything just feels so...



What are you doing here?

Nice to see you, too, djuna.

I'm staying here for a week

while my new place gets set up.

Well, call her if you want.

Hi, I'm mimi.

Djuna's sister.

It's really not a good

idea for you to stay here.

Where am I supposed

to go, djuna?

To a hotel?

I'm only going to

be here a week.

It's not like I'm going

to hang around you anyway.

Don't worry.

You look great.

What's your secret?

Dog blood?

I take it the two of

you don't get along.

No she's...


She's a disturbed creature.

Where are you coming from?



It was horrible.

The group I was

living with was crazy.

I couldn't take it anymore.

You couldn't take it, or

they couldn't take it?

How long were you there?

Five years.

It was fun at first.

It's a great city, but my
