THE BARBARIAN INVASIONS (18)

with English subtitles Director Denys Arcand Canada 2003 (1hr 39mins) with Rémy Girard, Stéphane Rousseau, Marie-Josée Croze Fierce intelligence, sparkling wit and worldly-wise pathos permeate French-Canadian director Denys Arcand's sequel to his The Decline of the American Empire, which reunites the cast of that 1986 film (although enjoyment of this film is certainly not based on knowledge of the earlier film). Remy Girard stars as a dying man at the centre of a heart-wrenching reunion of estranged family and friends. A brilliant rendering of life's joys and cruelties, with deeply compassionate performances from all. Don't forget to book for a free post-show language workshop immediately after the screening! Presented in association with The University of Nottingham's Centre for Continuing Education.
