Incendies review

A striking adaptation of Wajdi Mouawad’s stage play, this intimate epic interweaves the personal, the political and the mythical to gripping effect.

Following the death of their Arabic mother, Nawal (Lubna Azabal), adult Canadian twins Jeanne (Mélissa Désormeaux-Poulin) and Simon (Maxim Gaudette) find themselves in her homeland, searching for a father they presumed was dead.

Expertly shifting between present and past , writer-director Denis Villeneuve displays an impressive command of his material, patiently building up to an emotionally explosive climax.
