  • Denis Villeneuve's screen adaptation of a play by the Lebanese-Canadian playwright Wajdi Mouawad tells a story-masterfully-of courage, cruelty, family mysteries and a chain of anger that can only be broken by love. show more

    Thought provoking but very Depressing. Can\'t believe a mother would want to put her children through such a nighmare. The plot seemed contrived, but made a point about breaking the chain of retribution. I wasn\'t prepared for this.

    This was the most contrived piece of garbage I\"ve seen in a very long time. A complete waste of 2 good Sunday hours.
