LEGEND OF THE DEMON CAT

by Chen Kaige

A Chinese poet and a Japanese monk join forces to investigate a demonic cat who has possessed a general’s wife and wreaked havoc on the imperial court.

Synopsis

A film about Love, Death, and Revenge.  LEGEND OF THE DEMON CAT is set over a thousand years ago, during the Tang Dynasty.  A Chinese poet and a Japanese monk join forces to investigate a demonic cat who has possessed a general’s wife and wreaked havoc on the imperial court.  The investigation takes some gruesome and unexpected twists, leading the monk and the poet to unravel the mystery behind the decade’s old death of the legendary, beautiful concubine Yang Guifei. 

For the five-year production, critically-acclaimed filmmaker Chen Kaige arranged the construction of an entire city as the set, with lakes, rivers, palaces, caves, glamorous buildings and parks.  The filming of this epic lasted 150 shooting days over 3 seasons, with thousands of extras, over 15,000 costumes and a crew of hundreds.  Over 1,200 visual effects were designed in Japan to create the mysterious character of the film – The Demon Cat.
