Decline of the American Empire

Synopsis

Following on from the success of The Barbarian Invasions last season we bring you Denys Arcand's award-winning, hilarious and satirical comedy 'prequel' featuring many of the same cast and characters.

Made 17 years earlier, this is a witty and provocative look at the battle of the sexes. Four men gather at a country retreat to prepare a gourmet supper, while in the city their female companions are working out at a health club.

Both groups discuss their sex lives, affairs and seduction techniques and when they finally meet for dinner, the knives are out, revelations are made and an uncomfortable night is in store for all.
