Les Invasions Barbares (The Barbarian Invasions) –– Canada Denys Arcand 2003
Wednesday, January 8th, 6:00pm. Address given with RSVP.
1 hr. 39 min 1/8/14/19
This is a funny and sad movie by the Québécois filmmaker, Denys Arcand, kind of like life much of the time. A university professor (Rémy Girard) of Falstaffian appetites is dying from incurable cancer, which moves his former wife, to whom he was unfaithful six months after their wedding as well as frequently thereafter, to call their son, Sébastien (Stéphane Rousseau), in London and urge him to come home. Sébastien, a mover in the world of high finance in London, has been estranged from his father ever since the young man chose making money as his life’s path. He has a lot of it, as well as a classically beautiful fiancée, and has learned how to use it thoughtfully and perhaps even with love, during his father’s final days, paying the hospital janitorial staff, for instance, to turn an unused room into his father’s private hospice. The path to reconciliation, however, cannot be paved only with money, as he discovers. Sébastien’s first visit to his dying father ends with the socialist professor shouting condemnation of his son’s capitalist values and way of living, and his son shouting back––an angry exchange that has gone on, we know, for years.
The argument is the start of the film’s up and down––and even sideways–– movement toward all kinds of reconciliations between father and son, husband and wife, lover and mistresses, and even professor and students, though the last, we find out, only happens because of the son’s devious cleverness. In the end, the professor can no longer get relief from his excruciating pain by taking morphine. He needs cocaine, a hospice nurse/nun tells him, and only Nathalie (Marie-Josée Croze), the addicted daughter of one of his lovers and the childhood friend of his son, can provide it and knows how to inject it. She also adds more twists to a story that ends the way we would all want our lives to end, peacefully and surrounded by friends and family, however they have found their ways to our bedside.
