Movie Summary

Director:
Olivier Assayas
Released:
2002
Rating:
R
Demonlover is a 2002 thriller about an international business deal where everyone has a secret and one woman will have to fight to keep from being sucked into the dangerous industry she's trying to profit from. In the future, a Japanese anime studio has begun producing three-dimensional, interactive pornographic films. Several international corporations see this development as the future of the sex industry, and everyone wants to own the rights to the productions. Diane de Monx (played by Connie Nielsen) is an executive at the Volf Corporation. She's leading the charge to acquire the rights to the new porn films and find an American distributor. The distributor she approaches is called Demonlover, a large corporation responsible for a large portion of the adult industry—including some less-than-legal sadomasochistic websites. As Diane tries to infiltrate Demonlover, she learns no one can be trusted in an industry where sex and violence are little more than price tags. Demonlover is an intense neo-noir film about the dangers of technology and the world's desensitization towards human suffering.moreless

    Sure to turn off general viewers due to its emotional inaccessibility, multitude of narrative problems and preoccupation with a torture Web site.
