Demon Pond, by profilic director Takashi Miike (Audition, Ichi The Killer), captures the popular Kabuki-esque play of the same name that he staged and directed to sold-out audiences in Japan. The sparse, almost minimalist production, dramatically recounts a mythical fantasy based on a traditional fairytale by Kyoka Izumi.
In it, Miike weaves the modern-day story of a man searching for a friend who has mysteriously disappeared, with a magical tale involving strange creatures, a heartbroken princess, and a pact that can´t be broken. Conflicts between faith and skepticism, and between social obligation and personal desire drive the narrative toward a dramatic conclusion where the worlds of the real and the surreal inevitably collide.
Takashi Miike, who has proven himself a master of multiple genres as a filmmaker, expands on his talents with this dazzling stage production. He has adapted the traditional fable faithfully, while updating the tale with humor and wit, a truly exceptional experience.
