The Barbarian Invasions
Film Review


The Barbarian Invasions is an interesting and low-key family drama. The film is about contrasts and has quite a mix of characters. It succeeds in balancing the cynical with the sentimental. Other reviewers have complained about the character of the father. But to my mind, the father character must be not completely likable, otherwise the dynamic in the film will not work. In various spots the lighting and focus stand out as well-done and, all-in-all, The Barbarian Invasions is a very competent film.

3.5 / 5.0
