David Verbeek / NL, 2021 / 98 min.
Five friends – super-rich, super-bored twenty somethings in Taiwan – find out after a weird night out that they have become vampires. David Verbeek’s eighth fiction feature is a spiritual portrait of the Chinese urban nouveau riche, and his most ambitious project to date.
The five friends in Dead & Beautiful are apathetic. Dead and empty on the inside – they even say so themselves. Until they wake up after a weird night out on the town with sharp incisors and a thirst for blood. Suddenly life is thrilling but the question is, can they still trust one another…
