Canada’s Top Ten: The Demons (Les démons)

Fri, Feb 12 / 9 pm
Directed by Philippe Lesage
2015, Canada, 118 min
French w/ English subtitles

The Best Feature award winner at Montreal’s Festival du Nouveau Cinéma, this narrative-feature debut is an atmospheric thriller about the heightened anxieties of a young boy in 1980s suburban Montreal, inspired by the director’s own childhood. Nine-year-old Felix is terrified of almost everything – a terror fuelled by his isolation from the adult world as his parents deal with their own dramas.

Canada’s Top Ten Film Festival is generously sponsored by IATSE 856 and Radio Canada Manitoba.

Reviews

An exceptional work - a strange, gripping vision of childhood at its scariest. An astounding performance by Edouard Tremblay-Grenier as the young boy.
