Dr. Sarah Roberts (Creator/SusanSarandon), a researcher in premature aging, is contacted by John Blaylock (Music/DavidBowie), who is in fact the immortal companion of the beautiful vampire Miriam (Catherine Deneuve). John was led to believe that he and Miriam would share a life of eternal youth when they met in the 18th century, and is most distressed by the fact that his body is suddenly deteriorating. Miriam, however, has known for some time that she needs a replacement companion. And Sarah is about to walk through the door...

* AssholeVictim: John doesnt deserve what he gets, but he isnt exactly the nicest guy, what with being a murderous vampire and all.

Added DiffLines:

* BodyHorror: John starts losing his immortality and ages rapidly. He doesn't lose his ''immortality'', just his ''youth''. Miriam has a dozen former vampire lovers tucked away in coffins in one room of her apartment, all of them extremely old and doomed to live as withered ancients forever. And a flashback suggests at least one of them has been that way since ''ancient Egypt.'' Gulp.


Added DiffLines:

* IHateYouVampireDad: The film ends with a We Hate You, Vampire Mom scene, in which all of Miriam's mummy-like former lovers gang up on her and harry her off a balcony.


Added DiffLines:

* MaleGaze: The lesbian sex scene is filmed and framed in such a way. The entire sequence is quite voyeuristic, with pans along legs, asses and breasts.
* MayflyDecemberRomance: Miriam turns her mortal lovers into vampires, who then live with her for a couple of hundred years. They then wither and age rapidly to a near paralytic state, and she files them away in coffins in her attic. She does show some regret over this.


Added DiffLines:

* NotUsingTheZWord: The film never uses V-word, despite the fact that it centers around a nigh-immortal woman who drinks blood.

* ImmortalityBisexuality: Miriam. This becomes particularly clear in the climatic scene when [[spoiler: several coffins in Miriam's house prove to contain ancient-looking undead some of which are dressed in women's dresses and at least one of which (besides John) is dressed in a man's suit]].

Added DiffLines:

* ItsAllAboutMe: How does Miriam justify trapping countless people in AFateWorseThanDeath? She's ''lonely'' and wants companionship.
