Just as the twisty title suggests, first-time feature director Ariane Louis-Seize surprises us at every turn with her hugely entertaining and exquisitely designed genre mash-up about Sasha, a young female vampire whose primal instincts aren’t developing as expected. When her frustrated parents decide to nudge her out of the nest hoping she’ll land on her feet, she encounters Paul, a young boy who might be the solution to her problems. Packed with humor and pathos from the opening scene, this rom-com/coming-of-age/horror comedy is ultimately a heartfelt journey about two lost and lonely souls finding each other in a big crazy world. Picking up more than a dozen Audience Awards at festivals around the globe, including four prizes at the prestigious Venice Film Festival, Humanist Vampire Seeking Consenting Suicidal Person is a charming crowd-pleaser not to be missed.
