Tried watching Nightwatch with my housemates the other day, it was totally lost on them
I tried watching that once (probably twice actually) but I got nowhere with it. I really wanted to like it, but I just couldn't get into it
Shame, I usually love foreign films as a lot of the time they're better than anything the UK or America can cough up.
It's certainly a marmite kinda film. The sequel Daywatch is even stranger
i thought both filsm were brilliant. the story gets hard to follow if you miss anything as its a very attention needing film. i think it makes Twilight look like a 14 year old girls wet dream while Night Watch/Day Watch are the brooding 30-somethings who want a good fight with plenty of sfx. i cant wait for the third film Twilight Watch (no connection to Twilight) based on the second Nightwatch book.
although if you watch Daywatch, you cant deny the scene with the car driving on the side of the building is pretty awesome.
'edit' just found out there might be a fourth film titled Last Watch. awesome
