Description by Wikipedia

Incendies (French: [ɛ̃.sɑ̃.di], "Fires") is a 2010 Canadian mystery-drama film written and directed by Denis Villeneuve. Adapted from Wajdi Mouawad's play of the same name, Incendies stars Lubna Azabal, Mélissa Désormeaux-Poulin, Maxim Gaudette and Rémy Girard. The story concerns Canadian twins who travel to their mother's native country in the Middle East to uncover her hidden past, tied in with a bloody civil war. Although the country is unnamed, the events in the film are heavily influenced by the Lebanese Civil War and in particular the story of prisoner Souha Bechara.

The film premiered at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals in September 2010 and was released in Quebec on 17 September 2010. The film met with critical acclaim in Canada, Quebec and abroad and won numerous awards. In 2011, it was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. It also won eight awards at the 31st Genie Awards, including Best Motion Picture.
