In THE BARBARIAN INVASIONS it has been years since Sébastien (Stéphane Rousseau), a wealthy London investment banker, has been home to visit his parents in Canada. He has been avoiding a run-in with his father, Rémy (Rémy Girard), a spirited and lustful Professor of History who long ago divorced Sébastien’s loving mother Louise (Dorothée Berryman.) But when a crisis calls Sébastien home to Quebec, father and son must confront one another at last.
To Sébastien, his father Rémy is unreasonable and cold. To Rémy, his son Sébastien is a symbol of the coming “barbarian invasions,” of all the negative changes in the world. But desperate to bring his father some kind of happiness, Sébastien pours his energy into an all-consuming mission: to reunite the “merry band” that marked Rémy’s complicated past – friends, colleagues and former mistresses included. In the process, Sébastien discovers more about his father than he ever imagined, more about what he wants and hope for in his own life, and more about the pleasures of wine, women, conversation and the love and compassion of good friends. Marie-Josée Croze won the 2003 Cannes Film Festival Best Actress Award for the role of a young drug addict who offers unusual assistance to Rémy.
