Incendies is one hell of a story

5 second plot: A brother and a sister, twins, try to fulfill their mother's last wish by looking for their father and brother. They didn't even know they existed (or were alive). This quest takes them to their mother's birth place in the Middle East. They find out a lot more about their family history then they expected.

5 second review: The story unravels like a Hitchcock thriller. At first it's difficult to get used to the non-linear story telling, but after a while it makes it even more interesting. The end is a long shot, but still, there is an amazing storyteller at work here. What a fantastic movie.
