However, Louis resists for a while, as he never wished death on other people. At first, the newborn vampire fed on the blood of rats and other small animals, but this could not last long.
Now let me describe some interesting facts about the making and shooting of this movie. For example, in order to give the vampires a sinister look, the actors had to hang upside down so that the blood rushed to the head. It is also known that the creation of makeup and the image as a whole took about four to five hours for each actor. By the way, it should be said that Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, who also played in this film, did not get along. Disagreements arose due to the fact that Brad refused to keep his body clean and hygienic - the actor smelled too much of sweat. The film is recognized as the best motion picture of that time on a mystical theme.
The film belongs to the fantasy action genre. Its name is translated from English as "oblivion". The movie was based on the novel of the same name, which was never published. The plot of the film tells the viewer about the story when the planet was severely attacked by aliens. Most civilians died, but the survivors were sent to a huge space station. The observation station is home to a couple in love - Jack and Victoria, who are monitoring the situation with the earth and a new space home for millions of people. Being at the observation station, the beloved carried out a certain mission given to them by the leadership. And soon they were to return to the common station. However, these plans are not destined to come true, because Jack suddenly meets a stranger who comes to him in his dreams, which really turned his whole life upside down.
It's no secret that in this film, Tom Cruise again played the legendary man leading the fight against aliens. It is also known that most of the filming and work on the film took place in Iceland. However, despite the next role of the "rescuer", Tom Cruise received high marks from film critics, as well as the public for a brilliantly played hero.

The film belongs to the genre of dramatic detective stories. The film is based on the story of an Austrian author named Arthur Schnitzler, whose work is emphasized. The main characters before us are the couple in love, played by Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. By the way, the couple was married in real life at that time. The plot is structured as follows. Bill, who is an exemplary family man, lives his life calmly. A man goes to work and loves his wife. Everything was fine until the moment when his wife confessed to her husband that she wanted to fall in love with a new man. Offended and upset, Bill leaves the house and remains alone for some time. However, it is precisely being away from the family hearth that Bill realizes that his essence is not so ideal either.
