Critic Reviews for Les démons (The Demons)

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

The doubts, fears, and yes, horrors of life beneath the comfortable surface of a Montreal suburb are subjected to the quizzical, pained gaze of a sensitive 10-year-old in Philippe Lesage's laconic, unsettling The Demons.

December 7, 2015 | Full Review…

Fevered imagination and nightmarish reality brush shoulders to disconcerting effect in The Demons, Quebecois filmmaker Philippe Lesage's extraordinary examination of childhood fears festering in broad suburban daylight.

... [director} Philippe Lesage has posited The Demons at the moment when a child begins to learn that the world is a place full of turbulence... [Full review in Spanish]

The look Lesage proposes, has something painful in its conception of childhood as a bad harvest, a field full of possibilities of growth badly planted by the ineptitude (inevitable) of the cultivator. [Full review in Spanish]

The result is something almost psychedelically meandering - or simply arbitrary and incoherent.

Audience Reviews for Les démons (The Demons)

With impressive long takes, a refined mise-en-scène and an interesting, almost fly-on-the-wall approach, this is a delicate look at a boy's life and fears as he learns about the world, but sadly the film gets lost with a tangential subplot that focuses on another character.
