The fall of the American Empire
La Chute de l'Émpire Américaine
Enjoy a glass of wine and canapés on arrival, followed by the film screening
It's Canadian Night at Palace Como! This special film screening includes a glass of wine & canapés on arrival, followed by the screening of the new heist comedy by Québecois filmmaker Denys Arcand. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Krysty Matheson, Senior film programmer at ACMI.
Québécois filmmaker Denys Arcand (Jesus of Montreal, the Oscar-winning The Barbarian Invasions) has made a celebrated
career out of creating politically provocative films. Steeped in dry humour and laden with satire, The Fall of the American Empire demonstrates
that the veteran writer-director is still performing at the top of his game.
Described by Hollywood Reporter as “Pretty Woman for socialists”, the film follows Pierre-Paul (Alexandre Landry) – a listless
loser with a PhD in Philosophy who feels his job as a delivery driver is well below him. His mundane life is turned upside down when, by
luck, he finds himself saddled with a princely sum in stolen cash.
