5 Movie Moments That Stunned Audiences Silent

5. Incendies – The Bus

Adapted from the play of the same name by Lebanese-Canadian writer Wajdi Mouawad, the 2010 drama Incendies was one of the most critically acclaimed Canadian films of all time, and even contended for Best Foreign Language picture at the Oscars (though it lost to In a Better World). Directed by Denis Villeneuve, who also helmed the similarly-acclaimed thriller Prisoners starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal, Incendies is a mystery that spans years, conflicts and ruined lives. Its protagonist is Nawal Marwan, a Canadian woman of (presumably) Lebanese descent, who dies shortly before the movie begins and whose life is investigated by her surviving twin children. In time, they learn that in her youth Nawal was an active, even iconic figure in a Middle Eastern civil war.
