"The storytelling in Incendies strikes me as primal the way Greek tragedy is primal. Shattering. Cathartic. It is a breathtaking film." - Bob Mondello, NPR 

"A mystery, a melodrama, a prison film, and a love story, Incendies is foremost a scream of rage at a society destroyed by religion and by men. It's a story about finally gathering the courage to stare evil in the face and obliterating it with love." - Ty Burr, Boston Globe
