This silent, black and white film, adapted from the Royal Winnipeg Ballet's interpretation of Bram Stoker's DRACULA, is Guy Maddin's dramatic masterpiece. It is an atmospheric, gothic work full of dance and eroticism, accompanied by Gustav Mahler music. Clearly a modern film that has been styled to mimic the earliest works of cinema, DRACULA: PAGES FROM A VIRGIN'S DIARY is grainy and its light is often distorted. It uses large, emphatic title cards that introduce the characters, give loose plot structure, and serve as ironically comic punctuation to the action. There are sound effects that bring reality to some of the more gruesome vampire-hunting sequences. And there are moments of color--for instance, when blood is crudely drawn from the arm of the victim's fiance into a large antique tube, or when Dracula tosses his bright green dollar bills into the air. The film is divided into two chapters dedicated to Dracula's two victims. In the opening sequences, Lucy (Tara Birtwhistle), a pale vampy creature clad in a white gown, flirts with three suitors, but abandons all of them to welcome the elegant and seductive Dracula (Zhang Wei-Quang) into her arms late at night. After Lucy has passed, the focus turns to a more virginal, demure victim: Nina
