Who wants to see a free movie?
Here’s the guff about Incendies, which is in cinemas on April 21: The Academy Award-nominated film is a masterful cinematic achievement - at once a tightly woven mystery; an epic, sweeping family drama and deeply affecting, profound and transcendent work.
At the reading of their mother Nawal’s will, twin siblings Jeanne and Simon learn for the first time that they have a brother, and that their father, who they thought was dead, is in fact alive. Their mother’s final wish is that the twins find them both to deliver certain sealed letters.
Shifting back and forth in time, Incendies follows two parallel journeys, expertly interwoven: the twins’ journey to their mother’s Middle Eastern homeland, and Nawal’s journey 20 years earlier to find the baby boy she was forced to give up. An incredibly powerful film that unfolds in such unique and unexpected ways, Incendies will floor you from the very first scene. It is one of those rare, extraordinary films that restores your faith in the power of cinema. Watch the trailer here.
