The Barbarian Invasions - 6

This is one of those films that you have to see a couple of times (I'll have to write more when I have seen it again). It is a very reflective film about life and the meaning of relationships in the midst of dying. Diagnosed with a terminal illness, Remy (Remy Girard) is reunited with his family and friends as he goes through the final stages of life and reflects on the value and meaning of his relationships. Directed by Denys Arcand (Jesus of Montreal and The Decline of the American Empire) this film is one of the few Canadian (and French-Canadian) films to win an Oscar.
