Drama/ Canada "Rémy, an inveterate womaniser and epicurean, is hospitalised. His ex-wife, Louise, asks their son Sébastien to come home from London. Despite hesitations and the conflicts which confront him to his father who regards him as a 'barbarian', he flies to Montreal and moves heaven and earth to ease the ordeal that awaits Rémy. Dark and luminous at the same time, deeply human, The Barbarian Invasions won Best Screenplay and Best Actress (Marie-Josée Croze) Prizes at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival." (Ciné-Lumière-Institut Français)
