Editor's NoteDenys Arcand delivers a beautiful film with THE BARBARIAN INVASIONS, the story of a man on his deathbed who is joined by his distant son and all his closest friends throughout the last--wonderful and loving--days of his life. In this follow-up to 1986's THE DECLINE OF THE AMERICAN EMPIRE, the same characters reappear. Now Remy (Remy Girard), the horny history teacher, is hospitalized and in pain. But at the urging of his wife, Louise (Dorothee Berryman), Remy's son Sebastian (Stephane Rousseau) comes to his aid. Sebastian is a banker who tosses cash around, paying hospital administrators, union workers, Remy's former students, and even a local heroin dealer, to help make his father's last days as comfortable as possible. Along with this financial commitment also comes love, and the relationship between this father and son is touching.The sometimes raucous and comic mood of the film, generated by perverted stories and silly jokes, stands in striking contrast to this serious story of life, sickness, and dying. But it is that balance, kept neatly in check by Arcand, that makes THE BARBARIAN INVASIONS a truly great cinematic feat, as well as a thoroughly enjoyable viewing experience.
