Differences with the novel

The film of Francis Ford Coppola’s attempt to return to the sources of the legend of Dracula. His screenplay, written by James V. Hart, is thus faithful to the work written by Bram Stoker and is moving away from the clichés of the film versions previous. On the other hand, one of its originalities compared to the book was the introduction of a love story between Dracula and Mina Murray, who is absent from the book of Stoker. By contrast, the suicide of Elisabeta, at the beginning of the film, is based on a true story. While the prince Vlad the Impaler was a party in the war, officers turks have actually shot an arrow into his castle to announce the false news of his death. In this sense, according to Coppola, the film is more faithful to the historical reality than the novel.

Furthermore, Stoker had made Dracula a monster without feelings ; the character evolves considerably in the version of Coppola and becomes a victim of his own folly, which in the end regret his actions and beg Mina to give him the eternal rest. Monster bloodthirsty, Dracula becomes a victim of love, a facet of which considerably enhance its character, while changing significantly the purpose of the original work. In addition, the character of Mina is also changing : in the novel, she is both the victim and enemy of the count, unlike the film where she is the reincarnation of his lost love and ends up falling in love with him.
