"Hotel Rwanda" by Yojimbo

Like The Killing Fields, Salvador and Schindler's List before it, Hotel Rwanda catalogues yet another example of the human race's remarkable talent for inhumanity. Don Cheadle gives a career best performance as a hotel manager who uses all his intelligence and guile to help save over 1200 refugees from the genocidal rampage of Hutu militants. The rest of the cast also put in the kind of committed performances actors give when they truly believe that a story must be told and although it is a little manipulative, it's never heavy handed or clumsy. I must admit, I didn't realise that the cultural segregation of the Tutsis and the Hutus was just an arbitrary division created by long gone occupying colonialism and the film gives a welcome lesson in the cause and nature of the conflict.

Hotel Rwanda review

Everyone should see this & remember what happened

In 1994 Rwanda faced a genocide of massive proportions due to an instable political environment. It is estimated that nearly one million people were slaughtered. This film places you right in the middle of it, as Don Cheadle plays Paul, a hotel owner who finds himself sheltering those who are targeted for death. The film depicts how large the conflict was and how the international community turned its back on Rwanda and left its citizens to die. Extremely powerful and uplifting, Paul shelters over 1000 refugees in his hotel and desperately tries to keep them alive.

Honestly, this is a movie that should be shown in history classes in high schools. It's not a happy or uplifting film, but in the tradition of Schindler's List is makes you wake up and realize the atrocities that have...
