‘Wow’ is the first thing that comes to mind. What a twist! This movie is the perfect example of how to get emotion from your audience without showing too much. I hate a movie with a 5 minute rape scene. It’s just unnecessary. Incendies tells an amazing story, very heart-breaking, without making it awful to watch.
Adapted from a play, it follows a brother and a sister who try finding out about their mothers history after she dies. It switches between them following clues left behind in the present and their mother in the past. The story gets more and more unbelievable as time goes on.
There isn’t much info on it but it did win a handful of awards. It was subtitled, which doesn’t really bother me (it adds to the realness of it in my opinion) and a little confusing at times because it switches between people and cities. Apart from that it was really good, like I said before, heart-breaking and cruel but very well done.
