The Demon Stirs

The Demon Stirs

A Feature film by Marie-Pascale Osterrieth

Produced by Pathé Production

Release in France : 22/06/2005


    When the human male hits his forties, he has a tendency to leave his “worn out” wife to go galloping in greener pastures. Anne has gone through the experience with Julien, the man of her life. After fifteen years of shared existence, and despite the adorable little son they’ve had together, she’s got to face up to the facts: Julien has fallen for falling in love.
    Blind, then rebelling and accumulating casual affairs, she ends up learning to live with a reality she didn’t choose – for herself or her son. And like all of life’s big crises, the pain the situation gives rise to echoes more deeply buried childhood hurts. Nevertheless, this damn fine mess allows her to discover an ability she didn’t know she had: the ability to laugh.
