Occasional Cinema

The Barbarian Invasions

Denys Arcand Canada – Quebec  2003  18 comedy, crime, drama  French language

A very funny, sad, tragic and thought-provoking film which touches on everything from drug-use, Canadian medicare, the child-father relationship and past intimate relationships. A fantastic screenplay for a wonderful cast of characters. Highly recommended.

Oscar winner – best foreign language film; 48 other awards.
