From its captivating opening to its chilling and almost nauseating conclusion, Dennis Villeneuve’s Incendies is a powerful and emotional film with shots and scenes leaving one dazed. The film makers portrayed utmost cruelty yet understood and respectfully displayed the plight of each character and their inter-connecting paths.
The movie starts with a slo mo sequence of little, fearless boys getting their heads shaved at what seems like a middle east refugee camp with Radiohead’s eearie You and whose army? It ends with a boy fixating the camera with an unsettling stare as he gets his head shaved.
