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.

  • Until its devastating final scenes, the way "I Do Not Care" makes its points is discursive rather than dramatic.

  • Barbarians is, in other words, anything but subtle.

    Jul 18, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • Rada Jude's behind-the-scenes drama tackles the charged subject of historical atrocity at one remove, with the grim wit that is a hallmark of recent Romanian cinema.
