Movie Info

Consumed by the jealousy and power struggles of their own relationships, a man, his mistress and his wife involve three children in their own games-with tragic results. After Sokichi stops providing his mistress with monetary support, she leaves her three children with him, whom she insists are also his, and disappears. Sokichi is bewildered and his wife is livid so with regard only for their own discomfort, they go about remedying their situation. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Demon

A hidden gem if there ever was one, this film was a lot better than Nomura's Castle of Sand. I had no idea this film would play out like it did. Brilliant, mature work by Yoshitaro Nomura. Great performances by everyone, especially the children. Original, strange, perverse, very moving.
