  1. Miguel Plante's rating of the film The Decline of the American Empire

    Ce film n'a pas vieilli d'une ride. Plusieurs le considèrent comme un des grands classiques québécois, et il est très facile d'approche. En gros: une poignée d'amis échangent leurs pensées et théories sur la société, sexualité, fidélité... Puis les confrontent entre eux. La scénarisation, le traitement des discutions à l'image (parce qu'il n'y a que ça!) est très intéressant. Drôle, osé (pour son époque), à voir!

  2. ADZERTY's rating of the film The Decline of the American Empire

    Voilà un film écrit et hautement civilisé pour parler du déclin de la civilisation ! On pourrait penser que les protagonistes sont des intellectuels sans complexes, avec une bonne situation, qu'ils ont dépassé sans peine les cadres de la vieille morale pudibonde, mais on est heureux de constater que le bonheur et le ménage entre l'amour et la sexualité ne sont pas si simples -même pour eux !

  3. Superfrog's rating of the film The Decline of the American Empire

    A great format for an honest expression of how a generation saw their perfect itself. The open discussions about sex and sexual revolution are a great testament to how a generation saw their best. You want to be them, and not be them at all at the same time. If not a great piece of film technically, an amazing film as a whole.

  8. FISCHER's rating of the film The Decline of the American Empire

    Une oeuvre brillante, suave, acerbe et fort bien enlevée sur l'éternel problème relationnel entre hommes et femmes, dans ou hors du couple... www.cinefiches.com

  9. James Mackin's rating of the film The Decline of the American Empire

    Similar to the Big Chill, but superior and joual.

  11. henningninneh's rating of the film The Decline of the American Empire

    I was curious to watch this purported classical Quebec film, but was taken aback by the antipathetic characters. It is hard to understand, 30 years later, if their smugness and open racism and sexism was meant to be "charming" or if, by contrast, it is supposed to be satirical, critical commentary. In any case, I felt the story lacked an arc. By itself, the issues and conversations are not interesting enough.

  12. Elephants Gerald's rating of the film The Decline of the American Empire

    Vile people talking about their vile sex lives. Bourgeois academic white people problems. I'm holding out hope for THE BARBARIAN INVASIONS.

  13. Adriana Valente's rating of the film The Decline of the American Empire

    a fasquia foi diminuindo. o mais: diálogos

  14. Ahmet UJeschk's rating of the film The Decline of the American Empire

    I like films where all characters have "character" and a history for themselves to identify themselves in a shared time. No starring, just ordinary people.

  15. nadka's rating of the film The Decline of the American Empire

    "I expected an orgy, instead the big thrill is a fish pie". great film - witty, wonderfully shot and a bit sad. oh, and a must see for anyone working in academia :-)

  16. Mrwarhol's rating of the film The Decline of the American Empire

    This is one of the stupidest, most immature movies I've ever seen. The characters all have the emotional intelligence of seventh graders. Watching this movie is a complete waste of time.
