A very french UK movie...
17 February 2004 | by bumbleBBSee all my reviews

Demon is a beautiful flower growing on the worst human dung.

Although based in the future, the atmosphere of the film reminds me of the dark 19th century Paris of Emile Zola, who said: `All I care about is life, struggle, and intensity'. It also seems to be Vecchiato's approach.

Like most of us, I have been at this point in life where you realise that there is no safe middle ground anymore: From now, things can either go all wrong or all right. It is an ultimately frightening, violent, emotion that is very subtlety depicted in the film: You can see in Demon's big eyes that she is desperately scared and completely alone despite her friendship with Davi. It is terrifying, and really touched me.

And impressive camera work: the sequences of the streets of Paris are mesmerising.
