I don't know if I've ever written about a movie here, but Denis Villeneuve's Incendies moved me so much that I can only urge you to run to the Tiff Bell Lightbox while it is still on.
Based on Wajdi Mouawad's play and set during the Lebanese war it is a most amazing re-telling of the old Oedipus myth and a deeply felt plea against violence and hatred. I would never have thought that a movie could reach the depth of the Greek master tragedians, but Incendies proved me wrong. As moving a piece of art as you will ever see.
