Event Originally produced by Under the Milky Way in 1986.
Summary This Oscar-nominated drama follows a group of intellectual friends during a country holiday. As the conversation naturally turns to sex, the men brag about their promiscuity while their female counterparts dish on their own exploits at a nearby gym. But what was a fun and titillating topic devolves into the catalyst of hurt feelings and accusations when an unexpected dinner guest reveals some shocking secrets.. Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the Academy Awards. Winner of the FIPRESCI Prize at the Cannes Film Festival.. "The mistake, in viewing THE DECLINE OF THE AMERICAN EMPIRE is to think it's about sex. It is really about what has replaced sex in our society - thinking and talking about sex. The movie is wise, deep, and painful..." - Roger Ebert
