Time Out - Joshua Rothkopf
A staggering political drama that could put you in mind of the intimate sweep of Bernardo Bertolucci, Incendies feels like a mighty movie in our midst.

Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
The movie is a bumpy road of twists that leads to a revelation that has the shock and force of Greek tragedy.

New York Magazine (Vulture) - David Edelstein
The movie doesn't quite jell, but you'll feel its sting for hours.

The Hollywood Reporter - Stephen Farber
Although the film runs more than two hours, the story is so compelling and the production so beautifully controlled that we are gripped by the characters' quest right up to the shocking end of the story.

Rolling Stone - Peter Travers
A devastating mystery thriller from Quebec filmmaker Denis Villeneuve that grabs you hard and won't let go.
