Politics Aside
I have never been a fan of Canadian cinema because it was generally soaked with the sort of contrived politically correct sexual and social attitudes of which the conformist majority was already a proponent. Thus, Canadian films tended to be “pop-Canadian-culture” films about political correctness.

Of course there were exceptions: Atom Egoyan’s “Exotica” or “The Sweet Hereafter,” or some of Cronenberg’s more experimental films like “Naked Lunch” possessed some of that existential starkness that attracted me to those films. Nonetheless my expectations generally remained low, which is why Denys Arcand’s great “Barbarian Invasions” was such a pleasant surprise.

The film is about three things: the disillusionment with socialism, the growing disillusionment with capitalism, and the death of a man who happened to have been a socialist professor in Montreal, while his son a millionaire.

Remy is dying of cancer. He is dying in a Montreal hospital, which in a five minute scene is established as the horror of socialist Canadian health care. Remy’s ex-wife calls upon his estranged, well-off son, Sebastien to come visit and take care of his dying father. What follows is both a comic and a touching critique of the achievements of socialism. The film also suggests that the increasingly nihilist capitalism, or money, seems to be the only way to get around in this world. Money gets Remy out of an overcrowded ward, it gets him the most accurate medical tests and the “painkillers” he needs to survive.

But “Barbarian Invasions” is critical of both systems: there is a beautiful scene where an auctioneer visits an old Montreal priest who takes her to the basement where he apparently has statuettes and chalices he wants to sell. The girl examines them and tells him that they would be of more value to the people at the church than on the world market. The priest remarks starkly: “In other words, they are worthless.” Capitalism, consequently, is as anti-spiritual as socialism was.

However, there are far more levels to “Barbarian Invasions” than mere politics. In fact, the film’s goal is really to scream “Politics Aside!” so that we can make room for the man who is dying. Because Remy is not a quiet, subdued man. He is a lusty man a la Sabbath from Roth’s “Sabbath’s Theater” who loves life, women, wine and radical socialism. But now, that all those things are distant from him, he is forced to question his life, his relationships with his friends and his estranged children.

What follows is a profound and touching elegy to the stupidities of youth, the mistakes in life, the regret and acceptance of old age – in other words of humanity. In the end, though Remy may be disillusioned with socialism, and definitely not all-too-happy with capitalism, facing death somehow robs politics of their significance. Not to say that politics aren’t significant in life, because they pervade everything we do and see and so on, but bare, unadulterated life shines through for Remy. In the end, “Barbarian Invasions” is about death, and dying with dignity and how that dignity is achieved. While neither capitalism nor socialism offer it, it can be found at a more basic, human level.

It’s ironic, as a side-note, that this film came out roughly at the same time as Bertolucci’s “The Dreamers,” which is essentially a contemplation on the idealism and romanticism of French socialism and the “free love” culture of the 60s. I found Bertolucci’s film much less profound than his greater ones – it used an affair between two siblings and an American closed off in an apartment for several days as a metaphor for the sixties. It ended rather tragically, but unrealistically – it tried to convince us that people got out from their cloistered “apartments” (read mentalities) and went to the streets to protest. What “Barbarian Invasions” tells us is that the protesters on the street were still really in that apartment, cloistered from reality.

like godfather 2….a better sequel
I rented the original film, Decline of the American Empire, before setting out to watch this and I must admit — it was not very good. In the years since he made it though, Arcand has learned how to direct. Instead of obvious camera setups, there was a precision to what he did here. Instead of the ridiculous tracking shot at the beginning of Decline, Barbarians was in control of the screen at all times. Arcand took the thinnest of reeds — a man dying — and made magic out of it.

The story of a child reconciling with a dying parent is older than time. But this movie did it with unique touches of pathos and wit. No character was good or bad. They were both.

This is a movie that was made for family viewing. Not children, mind you. But grownup parents and their progeny. It will leave you with a lot to talk and think about.
