Film ”Demonlover” in Meeting Point Cinema

Tomorrow,14 March, there will be the last film projection of the films from The French New Wave which were selected by famous film critic Jean – Michel Frodon. The audience of Sarajevo will have the opportunity to see a film ”Demonlover” by Olivier Assays which will be shown at Meeting Point Cinema at 8 p.m.

Demonlover is a 2002 French technological neo-noir thriller film starring Connie Nielsen, Charles Berling, Chloë Sevigny, and Gina Gershon.

French director Olivier Assayas departs from his usual dramas with Demonlover, a wild thriller about corporate intrigue, hardcore sex Internet sites, and Japanese animé. Wealthy French business man Henri-Pierre Volf (Jean-Baptise Malartre) assigns Diane de Monx (Connie Nielson) to make a deal with TokyoAnime, a company at the forefront of three-dimensional adult animation, after his former assistant, Karen (Dominique Reymond), is kidnapped. Diane, however, is actually a spy for a different company. Standing in her way is another headstrong business woman (Gina Gershon), and Diane’s assistant, Elise Lipsky (Oscar nominee Chloe Sevigny) who questions her boss’ morality. Demonlover was screened at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival.
