There is a new documentary coming soon about Absinthe. We already found the trailer for this Absinthe movie on the Vimeo video platform. Looks decent, but let´s see if it is a good movie. It seems as they will present the Green Fairy in its traditional way, that´s good!
Absinthe was as well featured in the movie “Alfie” with Jude Law and Susan Sarandon. Susan explains to Alfie the secret of the Green Fairy and its seductive qualities. They prepare it using the Bohemian Ritual, with fire, Hollywood likes it to be more exciting… The Absinthe scene starts at minute 1.
This film is about the love between the poets Verlaine and Rimbaud. Leonardo di Caprio plays in this movie. There are some pretty detailed Absinthe scenes. They also use Absinthe accessories like Absinthe glasses, spoons, an Absinthe fountain and a decanter.
The all time favorite Absinthe scene! With this movie the hype around Absinthe began. Kylie Minogue as the Green Fairy and the Moulin Rouge as the epitome of Absinthe culture helped a lot to reanimate the cult around Absinthe. Thanks Hollywood!
This movie created a big buzz for Absinthe. We often received inquiries like “Do you sell the Absinthe from Eurotrip..?”. First of all, such an nucelar green glowing Absinthe doesn´t exist, it is a Hollywood film requisite. And of course Absinthe doesn´t make you hallucinate. But the movie is funny, full of prejudices, but sometimes they can be quite funny 😉
Here is another movie “Blood and Chocolate” it is about vampires in Rumania, they drink Absinthe as their spiritual drink and as a serum of truth…Watch the video, they drink it as a shot but within the movie there are some more scenes where Absinthe is prepared more traditional.
The brand new movie Get him to the Greek shows an Absinthe scene with Puff Daddy as a psychadelic vision. It´s funny, but of course concentrates on the “false” drug like experience of Absinthe. Check it out, at least we laughed when we saw Puff Daddy eating his own head..!
Absinthe is featured in various movies. Some examples are Moulin Rouge with Kylie Minogue as the Green Fairy, From Hell with Johnny Depp (Absinthe is prepared with Laudanum) and one of the best scenes ever: The Absinthe scene in Bram Stokers Dracula with Winona Ryder:
