Academy award winning director Denys Arcand brings us The Fall of the American Empire a Canadian crime thriller that won the International Critics award. The film completes Arcand’s trilogy that includes The Decline of the American Empire and The Barbarian Invasions. 


About the Film - Pierre-Paul Daoust, 36, an intellectual with a PhD in philosophy is forced to work as a deliveryman to afford a decent living. 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 new Denys Arcand film takes a witty yet touching look at, as only Arcand knows how, the predominance of money in a society where all other values seem to have crumbled.
