We Are the Night is a 2010 German vampire film directed by Dennis Gansel, starring Karoline Herfurth, Nina Hoss, and Jennifer Ulrich. The film follows Lena, a young woman who is transformed into a vampire by Louise, the leader of a female vampire coven. Lena is a 20-year-old petty thief living in Berlin. She has a troubled past, having grown up in a dysfunctional family and spent time in juvenile detention. Lena's life takes a turn when she meets Louise, a beautiful and mysterious woman who offers her a new life as a vampire. Lena accepts the offer and becomes part of Louise's coven, which also includes two other female vampires, Charlotte and Nora.

As a vampire, Lena experiences a world of luxury and indulgence that she never knew existed. She enjoys the freedom and power that come with being a vampire, as well as the immortality that allows her to pursue her passions without fear of death. However, Lena's excitement is short-lived when she realizes that there are consequences to being a vampire. She learns that the coven must kill to survive, and that their actions have attracted the attention of the police.

Lena struggles to reconcile her new lifestyle with her conscience. She is horrified by the brutality of the coven's actions and the callousness with which they treat their victims. Lena feels especially conflicted when she meets Tom, a young police officer who is investigating the murders that the coven has committed. Lena is drawn to Tom and they begin a relationship, but she knows that her vampire nature makes it impossible for them to be together.

Meanwhile, Louise begins to show signs of instability. She becomes increasingly paranoid and aggressive, and her behavior threatens the safety of the coven. Lena and the other vampires try to reign her in, but it becomes clear that Louise is a danger to them all.

We Are the Night is a stylish and atmospheric vampire film. The visuals are dark and moody, reflecting the brooding, introspective tone of the story. The film explores themes of power, temptation, and identity, as Lena struggles to find her place in the vampire world. The performances are strong, particularly from Karoline Herfurth as Lena and Nina Hoss as Louise.

Overall, We Are the Night is a compelling and thought-provoking film that will appeal to fans of the vampire genre. It is a haunting and beautifully crafted exploration of what it means to be a monster.
