Added DiffLines:

* AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: Many non-german viewers watched the film fully aware that [[spoiler: Charlotte steps into the sunlight to commit suicide.]] When the film started to get it's international release the distributors where blatantly invoking TrailersAlwaysSpoil by using that particular scene as a promotional clip. It can be justified, since [[spoiler: the sunrise-suicide]] along with Lena's transformation scene where spread on platforms such as YouTube and accumulated a lot of the initial international attention for the film. This troper can attest to that discovering that clip lead me to see the film and the eventual creation of this very article!


Added DiffLines:

* BadassBookworm: Charlotte is constantly seen reading books and has a taste for taking her vitims' firearms and using them against them.


Added DiffLines:

* PragmaticVillainy: In the opening scene Louise is rather annoyed about Nora killing off the entire plane crew and Charlotte's insistance to finish her book when they need to jump the plane.

* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Louise is more than two hundred years old, but appears to be at most forty. Charlotte is over a hundred, but looks around thirty. Nora is thirty seven, but still appears to be about twenty.



* SheCleansUpNicely: Louise gives Lena a post-transformation bath during which all of her various wounds heal, her tattoos and piercings disappear, her hair grows longer, and the black dye dissolves to show her natural auburn. Afterward, she appears significantly more conventionally attractive overall. She looks so different that it's almost as if she was a different person.

* AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: [[spoiler: Charlotte's SuicideBySunlight]] is a bit of and OpenSecret. After the release of the film, the scene popped up on YouTube, along the scene where Lena transforms and generated a lot of interest in the film. So upon the official english release both those scenes where used as promo clips. YMMW if this was a good decision, but this troper, who started this particular page, got interested from seeing one of those YouTube fragments.

* YourVampiresSuck: Slightly hinted at in a conversation between Lena and the other women. When Lena asks if there are male vampires too, Louise states that [[spoiler:they murdered them all]] because they just were too noticeable. If that's not an allusion to [[{{Film/Twilight}} sparkling skin]] and [[InterviewWithTheVampire bloody meals on stage]] as well as various other works, nothing is.

* AntiVillain: Louise, Charlotte and Nora all count, since they show no remorse for killing most of their human victims [[spoiler:and even a lot of other vampires]], but Louise gets the cake: After her beloved Sire died (likely commiting suicide), she had to live an entire century alone, desperately looking for a companion. [[spoiler:No wonder she snaps when Tom takes Lena away from her.]]

Added DiffLines:

* SuspiciouslyAproposMusic: Like, half the soundtrack is this.
** When Lena enters the club, ''Miserable Girl'' plays, which is a song about a girl trapped in her life.
** The song which plays when Lena and Louise dance, ''Dumpfe Träume'', is almost like it's sung from Louise perspective regarding her feeling towards Lena.
** Then the song that is played directly afterwards is ''In Our Eyes'' which is about people living for the night, that will never die and seeing something in someone elses eyes and trying to seduce someone into that life.
** When Lena has her first go at being a vampire the lyrics on the soundtrack are: ''Land of the free, it starts with you, a perfect sky, a perfect life''.
** When Charlotte sits and mourns her lost life, the song played on the soundtrack is Klaus Nomi's ''Cold Song''. [[spoiler: A song about wishing to commit suicide]].
