Incendies -December 2010
Sunday 6 February 2011
We can discuss the adaptation on film of a theatrical masterpiece, the horrors of war, the realism of the action, the focus of the actors, the ambition of the filmmaker, the caustic presence of the lead or the curious absence of actual Arabic speakers but this also sums up Denis Villeneuve’s Incendies pretty well:
"Stuff happens and you’ll be like NO WAY and then the film goes even further and you’ll be like WHOA OKAY WHAT and then even further and you’ll be like OH MY GOD and then even further still and you’ll be like HOW CAN THIS BE HAPPENING OH MY GOD PLEASE and then it’ll just keep going even further and further and further and by the end of the film you’ll just be a steamy, shattered mess like I was."
