Incendies is a tale that weaves past and present as a mother's will instructs her twins to seek out their father and their previously unknown older brother, who was given up to an orphanage despite the mother's pleas to keep her son. Before given up to the orphanage, the son received a line of three dots on the heel of his right foot to identify him. Time and distance could not erase the mother's love for her son and she sets out to try to find him in a country torn apart by war.

Incendies review

This movie may have run long, but you need patience and focus to fully understand its splendor and premise because of its dual storyline, elegantly directed and unbelievable ending. Nawal Marwan, a Middle-Eastern Christian gets pregnant. Wahab, a refugee, gets shot. Nawal’s baby is sent away with a marker on his foot. Jeanne looks for people to help her find her mother. Nawal assassinates a Christian Leader. Abou Tarek, the executioner, rapes her and bears a child. Number 72 is branded as “The woman who sings.” The brother and sister, Simon and Jeanne, reunite and searches for their brother Nihad in Deressa. He is abducted by Chamseddine’s men. Nihad is Abou Tarek who changes his name residing in Canada. The children of Nawal read the will after her death.

Among many aspects...
