I Do Not Care If We Go Down in History as Barbarians

Inverted commas withstanding, “I Do Not Care If We Go Down in History as Barbarians” seems like an awfully long and pretentious thing to call a film. Indeed, it might even suggest that something long and pretentious will be awaiting any viewer of Radu Jude’s latest creation but thankfully, in this case at very least, only one of those adjectives is true.

At 140 minutes, Barbarians (as it will be referred to from here) is indeed rather long, especially when considering that one could easily describe it as a drawn-out dialectic on the responsibility of nations to confront whatever atrocities their government and populous committed in the past. So how on earth is Barbarians so funny and compelling? Well, one reason might be that it’s a movie by Radu Jude, a Romanian New Wave filmmaker who has managed to operate just outside the main spotlight of his gilded colleagues, occasionally departing from their stark contemporary realism while always sharing in their brand of gallows humor.

His last significant film, the period-set Aferim!, cast a revisionist eye on the way his countrymen treated Gypsy slaves and Jewish people in the 19th Century and Barbarians looks to do something similar (indeed, it might be a comment on the struggles he faced in getting the previous film made) although this time taking aim at more recent events and also set in the here and now.
