Long synopsis

Diane works for the Volf Group. A hugely powerful conglomerate, Volf is negotiating the acquisition of TokyoAnimé, whose revolutionary pornographic 3-D manga is set to annihilate the competition in an extraordinarily lucrative market. Two companies are battling for exclusive rights to Volf’snew images on the Web: Mangatronics and Demonlover. Mangatronics has recruited Diane to torpedo their rival from within. If uncovered, Demonlover’slinks with various violent and illegal porn sites would jeopardise any relationship with Volf. Diane discovers that Demonlover too have their spies. This knowledge makes her a threat. She is trapped. At the mercy of Demonlover. Her only chance is to surrender to the cyber-reality of which she has been a part from the beginning.

A stellar cast including Connie Nielsen (soon to be seen opposite Robin Williams in “One Hour Photo” and Tommy Lee Jones and Benicio del Toro in “The Hunted”), Chloe Sevigny, Gina Gershon and Charles Berling alongside a host of top Japanese talent (Abi Sakamoto, Naoko Yamazaki, Nao Ohmori) joins Olivier Assayas for “Demonlover”. Both high octane 21st century thriller and the unique work of an undisputed auteur, charged with an ultra-modern brutality, and featuring a scorching Sonic Youth soundtrack, “Demonlover” explores the furthest reaches of a world powered by greed and desire, melting the boundaries between reality and fantasy.
