The Fall of the American Empire


Pierre-Paul (Alexandre Landry) is a shy, 36-year-old intellectual with a PhD in philosophy who’s forced to work as a deliveryman to afford a decent living.

“NYT Critic’s Pick!  Funny and engrossing …  packs in a lot of pointed social and political commentary.” – Glenn Kenny, New York Times

One day, while delivering a parcel, he gets caught in a hold up gone terribly wrong: two dead and millions in money bags laying on the ground. Pierre-Paul is confronted with a dilemma: leave empty handed, or take the money and run? This provocative crime caper from Academy Award-winning writer/director Denys Arcand (The Barbarian Invasions; The Decline of the American Empire) takes a witty yet touching look at the predominance of money in a society where all other values seem to have crumbled. (Dir. by Denys Arcand, 2018, Canada, in French/English with English subtitles, 127 mins., Rated R)
