Film Review: “Incendies”

May 12, 2011

The new movie “Incendies” (an-sahn-DEE) looks back on the civil war in Lebanon through the eyes of a now-dead woman who barely survived it, and her daughter who wants to know what happened. The film was the French entry for the foreign film Oscar. For Colorado Public Radio film critic Howie Movshovitz, the picture casts a cold and brilliant eye on the horror of religious warfare.
