The Barbarian Invasions - GG

The Barbarian Invasions (Sun SBS 930P) is easily GG-movie-of-the-week. Winner of the 2004 Best Foreign Film Oscar (French Canadian), it tells the story of Remy, dying in a hospital bed in a Montreal hospital. A “rambunctious socialist” all his life, he is surrounded by his son, Sebastien, a “modern capitalist” and a collection of old friends and lovers.
A reunion of sorts for the cast and crew of 1989’s Jesus of Montreal, this film mixes its challenging scenes with “great warmth and acerbic wit.”
