Dir. Denis Villeneuve
Starring Lubna Azabal, Melissa Desourmeaux-Poulin, Maxim Gaudette, Remy Girard
When their mother’s will implores them to deliver letters to the father they thought was dead and a brother they never knew about, twins Jeanne (Mélissa Désormeaux-Poulin) and Simon (Maxim Gaudette) journey to the Middle East and attempt to reconstruct their family’s hidden history. Adapted from a Wajdi Mouawad play, director Denis Villeneuve’s Oscar-nominated drama flashes back to intense scenes set during the Lebanese civil war in the 1970s.
“The storytelling in ‘Incendies’ strikes me as primal the way Greek tragedy is primal. SHATTERING. CATHARTIC. IT IS A BREATHTAKING FILM.”
