Last year's nominee for Best Foreign-Language Film Oscar, is a surprise gem of a movie. A supposedly Lebanese mother's dying request from her reluctant twin son and daughter in Canada, is to find both their long-lost brother and father. This sends them on a journey into the past, told in flash-backs and flash-forwards, leading to shocking revelation after shocking revelation (with negligible coincidences). The violence pictured is on-par with any civil war movie, but the brutality implied would even make Tarantino shudder. Is this a general statement against war, or an effort to put any religious/sectarian violence to shame?
