Movie Info

Radu Jude's resonant feature, "I DO NOT CARE IF WE GO DOWN IN HISTORY AS BARBARIANS", chronicles a young theatre director's efforts to stage an accurate re-enactment of the Odessa Massacre - in which Romanian soldiers slaughtered tens of thousands of Ukrainian Jews - despite the municipal government's attempt to censor the director's efforts. Her choice angers a city official who threatens to close the production because of its "anti-Romanian" take on history. However, the reaction to the staged play is one that neither anticipated.

  • Jude... approaches a potentially prickly subject with his usual ironic humor and keen eye for flawed, fallible humanity.

    Jul 3, 2018 | Full Review…
  • A provocative, sarcastic, and momentous act of interrogation between the past and the present that escalates to an impasse, with the hands of each locked around the neck of the other.

  • Barbarians may be one of the more intellectually daunting movies at SIFF this year, with its single-take scenes, philosophical references, and meta approach. But it is, unfortunately, relevant and necessary viewing

    Jun 7, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A potent argument for truth in art, and a provocative challenge for all nations to reckon honestly with their own history.

    Feb 20, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • An experimental dive headfirst into controversy, it leaves you wondering: what would happen if more films embraced the complexity of their subject like this?
