Action/Arthouse/Crime | 88 min. | USA/Canada | 2015 | TRAILER
In this Shakespearean crime drama, star-crossed lovers walk either side of the law, struggling to elevate themselves as the world pushes them down. Family, love, deceit, and violence paint the picture of Daniel, an unassuming hitman, and Elena, an unlikely rookie cop, in this stylized allegory of everyday characters walking through their world of crime and murder. Blood Empires is a wild and award-winning psychological drama, deliberate in its embrace of the 70s crime novel and shot in an Arthouse/Mafia style reminiscent of that glorious time period in crime fiction.
