The Barbarian Invasions (French: Les Invasions barbares) is a 2003 Canadian-French comedy-drama film written and directed by Denys Arcand. It is the sequel to Arcand's earlier film The Decline of the American Empire and is followed by Days of Darkness. The film was produced by companies from both Canada and France, including Telefilm Canada, Société Radio-Canada and Canal+. It was released in 2003 and won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film at the 76th Academy Awards in 2004.

Synopsis

Continuing seventeen years after Arcand's The Decline of the American Empire, the film centres on an exploration of the characters first met in the original film and their children, newly introduced. The older generation are still largely social-democrats and proponents of Quebec nationalism, but both political and economic developments after the “Quiet Revolution” of the 1960s, as well as their own aging, make their left-wing stance seem somewhat anachronistic.

Eight intellectual friends - four men and four women from the Department of History at the Université de Montréal - prepare to have dinner together. The ensuing conversations range from their professional lives to politics, but primarily concern their sexual exploits. The group has plans to gather at a secluded house for dinner. While the four men prepare the food and reflect on their promiscuity, the four women discuss their own affairs at a nearby gym. At the dinner table, conflicts soon arise when Dominique reveals that she herself has had affairs with two of the men there, one of whom is married to Louise (also present).

Le curé d'un sanctuaire et d'un lieu de pèlerinage (qui n'est pas nommé mais ressemble fortement à l'Oratoire Saint-Joseph) engage le jeune comédien Daniel, nouvellement de retour à Montréal, afin de monter une version rafraîchie de la Passion du Christ dans les jardins de ce lieu de culte. Ce dernier réunira une petite troupe de comédiens et en fera une interprétation libre, grandiose et sensible. Lors d'une représentation des forces de l'ordre interviennent et la lourde Croix tombe sur lui. Daniel est transporté en ambulance à « l'Hôpital St.-Marc », un endroit bondé et impitoyable, mais n'y reçoit aucun soin. Il quitte l'hôpital en état de choc et descend dans le métro.

Jean-Marc Leblanc est un gratte-papier à la vie insignifiante dont la femme et les filles se désintéressent. Il se rattrape dans son monde imaginaire où il se voit tantôt couvert de lauriers, au sens propre comme au figuré (en puissant empereur romain, en romancier lauréat de grands prix littéraires), tantôt en vaillant chevalier avec les plus belles femmes du monde à ses pieds.

Alexandre Beck is a doctor who has slowly been putting his life back together after his wife Margot was murdered by a serial killer. Eight years on, Alex is doing well, until he finds himself implicated in a double homicide, which has plenty of evidence pointing to him as the killer – though he knows nothing of the crimes. The same day, Alex receives an email that appears to be from Margot, which includes a link to a surveillance video clip that features his late wife looking alive and well. The message warns Alex that they are both being watched. He struggles to stay one step ahead of the law, while henchmen intimidate Alex's friends into telling them whatever they might know about him – the henchmen eventually kill one of them, Charlotte. In the meantime, Alex's sister Anne persuades her well-off wife Hélène to hire a respected attorney, Élisabeth Feldman, to handle Alex's case.
