“Incendies” by director Denis Villeneuve is a Canadian mystery-drama film released in 2010 that tells a story about a brother and sister, twins, who are sent by their mother via her will to search for their father and their brother. This journey reveals, via flashback, the mother’s ordeal in an unnamed Arab conflict (Christianity vs Muslim), and is capped by the revelation that the father and brother are the same person. War is so horrible that it causes even this sort of thing to happen, but whereas the mother can’t survive this last atrocity (the realization makes her literally will herself to die), her children can live on.
