Re: What if Eli Had Said, "Yes, I'm Dead"?

I have to look at the original, metaphorical reason vampires are called the undead to answer this question. The reason why they're called that is because they have no compassion. They're dead because ironically will do anything to stay alive. Unmetaphorically its Oskar reaching for the basic vampir...

Re: How Does Eli Know?

I agree in that Eli showing up in the exact time needed is the "connection between Eli and Oskar beyond logic" as you say but I disagree in that it needs no explanation. It does simply because this very thread exists. Because the question is brought up, repeatedly, it demands an answer. If it doesn...

Re: How Does Eli Know?

It does not have to be a reason . It's just a movie and not have to follow a logical line . It is what we would like to happen in real life . Finally vengeance against the bullys , finally Eli comes to save the beloved , there is a connection between Eli and Oskar beyond logic, closer to the sentim...

Re: Listing of Showings

That's where I saw it when it first came out back in '08. It did fabulously there and stayed for weeks if not months.

Re: Better Actor: Lina or Kåre?

I would say they both did their jobs quite well. Technically I think Lina was one of the best child actors ever, playing Eli but its not really a matter of less or more, its a matter of how their acting shaped their roles. To me their acting was yin and yang, which perfectly fits the color of their ...

Re: Fear of getting close

My thoughts exactly Intrige. The bullied become the bullies and I love how they didn't spare Oskar this truth. To me it makes the movie a little less about Oskar and Eli in a way and more about human nature itself and how love fits there and is needed get out of lifes dog eat dog cycle. I love Elis ...

Re: Bullying’s Gray Zone and The Vampire’s Transgressive Jus

Morality comes down to the golden rule, "do unto others as you would have them do unto you". Everybody is their own judge. I understand we all don't follow them. If you eat meat you probably are breaking the rule. To say that there is no difference between Connie and Eli is to say that everything is...

Re: How Does Eli Know?

I think the most interesting question about the pool scene is: Why did Oskar not gasp for air when he came to the surface I've brought this up before but this and the fact that he did seem to struggle for air, while underwater, but then became calm at the time of Elis arrival, signifies the exact m...
