Incendies ★★★★

A complicated political discourse is conveyed and commented upon through the personal history of a woman. A survivor. INCENDIES was pretty harrowing in places but remarkably well-shot and acted. The presence of Radiohead on the soundtrack was a surprise I must say but worked well with images.

The Count's Verdict: Strong themes, committed performances, impressive photography, interesting use of score and a plot with a sting in its tail all combine for a difficult but powerful watch.
