Film Series: Incendies

2010. Canada. Dir: Denis Villeneuve. With Lubna Azabal. 139 min.

An immigrant mother’s last wishes send her two children abroad in search of their absentee father and brother. Set against a stark and battered Middle Eastern landscape, this reflective mys- tery taps into the weight and pathos of Greek tragedy while remaining current in its depiction of war-torn regions and partisan strife.
