Le déclin de l’empire américain (1986)
;Decline of the American Empire;
Le déclin de l’empire américain (The Decline of the American Empire) is a brilliant satire of the male/female wars among a group of middle-aged, middle-class denizens of Montreal, all staged around a major meal at a country retreat on the shores of Lake Memphremagog. The group of intellectual friends spend a day in assorted groups discussing sex, love, sex, relationships and… sex. At times serious and then funny, Arcand`s vision is at once a cynical and cerebral look at how men and women view each other, and the concept of happiness itself. Chosen to be the opening night film of the 1986 Toronto Festival of Festivals, Le Déclin de l’empire americain went on to win eight Genie Awards.
