cant remember the name of this film. Its arthouse, french, and is about a woman vampire who has a brother which is also a vampire and is very sick. I'm pretty sure they play a song from Portishead. thats all i can remember about the film, and it was really good.

Dear Kristy, I think you're thinking of "Irma Vep" by Olivier Assayas, starring Maggie Cheung & Jean-Pierre Léaud.

"Irma Vep" is about a Hong Kong actress (Maggie Cheung) who travels to France in order to star in the remake of Louis Feuillade's "Les Vampires" as the crime syndicate leader, Irma Vep. It doesn't have anything to do with vampires. Sorry, but "Irma Vep" isn't the title of the film that you are looking for.

Ah, it just occurred occurred to me that the film that you may be thinking of is a 1994 Michael Almereyda film called "Nadja", although it is set in New York and the language is English. In the film, Nadja has a twin brother named Edgar, and Portishead's "Roads" is on the soundtrack.
