Completely brilliant, inexplicably mind-blowing, and compassionately told. Really the task of explaining this film to someone is daunting. On the surface it is about two siblings who are given the shocking task of hunting down their lost brother and their father whom they believe is dead. It’s a fairly straight forward detective flick right? Wrong. Oh so wrong. Incendies will take you for a cinematic experience unlike any I have seen. It captivates you with jaw-dropping cinematography, intense plot twists, mesmerizing acting, and ultimately one of the most satisfying endings to a thriller ever made. Prepare yourself for a story that will convict you with introspective looks at humanity, war, and religion. And then sit back and allow this film to resonate with you with it’s riveting and audacious characters. It is an example of filmmaking at it’s best.
