Incendies

This was another film that appeared on several ‘best-you’ve-never-seen’ lists and it did not disappoint.  The movie opens with a brother and sisters learning the will of their recently deceased mother.  The will stipulates that each of them must go on a journey of a semi-disclosed nature.   With that premise the movie goes off into a film that is at times difficult to watch as the children (mostly the daughter) trace their mother’s unknown past.  The ending is extremely unique and I didn’t see it coming.   The film does an amazing job showing how we need to resist hate.
