The Barbarian Invasion
Denys Arcand's Oscar-winning (for Best Foreign Language Film) drama is a life-affirming tale of love, family and friendship that features many of the cast and characters from his breakthrough film 'The Decline of the American Empire'. After years of indulging in his hedonistic lust for life and women, RÃ©my (RÃ©my Girard) is taken ill, an event that prompts a reunion with his ex-wife and estranged son SÃ©bastien. As father and son learn to set aside their differences, SÃ©bastien moves heaven and earth to make his father s life more comfortable, calling upon the unorthodox help of childhood friend Nathalie (Cannes Best Actress Marie-JosÃ© Croze) and RÃ©my's close friends and past mistresses. A brilliantly written and engagingly acted exploration of personal, political and sexual mores, Arcand's acclaimed film is witty, moving and hugely entertaining.
