Movie Info

Konjiki Yasha (Golden Demon) is the story of a young student named Kanichi (Jun Negami). Having long planned to marry his childhood sweetheart Omiya (Fujiko Yamamoto), Kanichi's heart is broken when the girl spurns him in favor of wealthy Tomiyama (Eiji Funakoshi). Kanichi has no way of knowing that Omiya was forced into this marriage by her avaricious parents. Years pass: the now misogynistic and cold-hearted Kanichi, convinced that gold is the only important thing in life, has transformed into a usurious moneylender, causing a great deal of tragedy and unhappiness to his debtors. Only through a cleansing fire is Kanichi able to change his greedy ways and reclaim his lost love. Konjiki Yasha was the winner of several awards, including the "Golden Harvest" award at the Southeast Asia Film Festival. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
