The movie is worth watching and it will make you cry.

This man did everything in his power to save innocent civilians from the horrific deaths during the genocide and this movie does a good job of showing it.

Shot in Rwanda where the actual events took place the film offers up powerful visuals as well.

I certainly did not find this movie "enjoyable," but it is a riveting, intense, powerful account of the dark side of human nature -- not just the butchers in Rwanda, but also the indifferent politicians and bureaucrats in the west (and at the United Nations). It's also the story of how General Daillaire is ground down as a result of being caught between his own very decent instincts and his military orders to avoid saving lives if doing so requires using force against bands of murderers... an impossible situaiton.

I believe this is actually the most intense film I have ever seen -- I rarely "lose it" watching a move, and I totally lost it near the end of this one. It should be shown in every high school as part of the curriculum.

I watched this movie back in late summer/early fall and really enjoyed it. It is the story of the Rwanda genocide in the mid-1990s and is based on Dallaire's book of the same name. It looks not only at the crisis itself, but also looks at the emotional impact that it had on Dallaire through a series of back flashes, as Dallaire is under going treatment for PTSD when he returned from Canada and had retired from the Canadian military. Looks at how he dealt with the crisis when the UN and the US government were basically ignoring him and the situation that he was facing. Highly recommended.

This movie does a great job of depicting the Rwandan genocide and all of the bureaucratic problems which plagued the mission. The movie is based on the book by the same title by Lt. Gen. Romeo Dallaire (force commander for UNAMIR). This man did everything in his power to save innocent civilians from the horrific deaths during the genocide and this movie does a good job of showing it. Filmed on location it gives the movie a very realistic feel. Having spent three months in Rwanda in areas where the film takes place I can tell you it is extremely realistic and was truly filmed on location.

If you want to learn about what it was like during the genocide but are not interested in picking up a book or watching a documentary this movie is definitely for you.

A lot is left out from the book so if you do wish to learn more I highly recommend the book.

I have seen many of Mr. Dupuis' works. This is amongst the most poignant. It is a disturbing recount of the genocide in Rwanda, and how General Daillaire was ordered to stand down and bear witness to the senseless slaughtering within a country between to factions under the presumed consent of the UN authorities.

It further displays the wreckage it played upon the General's psyche during and after the conflict. It is a profound film and should be a required study for those examining the social sciences. It had an impact upon me for several days, as I believe was its' intent. So be it. Truly a film to be WITNESSED, not merely seen.

POWERFUL!!!This movie was wonderfully made. I am currently enrolled in a Human Relation class in college. This movie has help me make more sense of the subject than the teacher. Beautiful landscape. I have read other reviews that stated the movie was hard to watch, even some said it was depressing. I didn't feel that. It proved that one man could help change the world. I have watched 4 times so far.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a powerful, muscular, totally unsentimental yet utterly heart-rending account of the Rwandan genocide, adapted from the autobiographical book by the Canadian general and UN peacekeeper who remained in Rwanda with a very small force of volunteers, to protect the innocent and bear witness, after the slaughter began. The script is well-constructed enough to keep us from getting confused about the numerous factions and individuals portrayed here, and the directing is riveting and unflinching. All of the actors do excellent work, but Roy Dupuis, as the lead character, particularly stands out; a versatile and accomplished actor, he gives perhaps the best performance of his career here.

Finally, considering that the theme is how the whole world looked the other way while these events occurred, I find it disheartening that this film has not gotten the attention it deserves.

Format: DVD
This is a great movie because it's about one of my heroes. It is a very interesting account of the obstacles that Senator Dallaire faced in Rwanda, and this character is nothing like the Nick Nolte character in Hotel Rwanda in the sense that he is very lovable, gentle, and human. He is my definition of a genuine hero because he showed true courage in the face of calamity. He did what a real man is supposed to do: stick around when the going gets tough. Unfortunately, his health was at stake. I love that he approves of this film. I know because I watched the special features of this film, and I watched him discuss this film with Roy Dupuis on Youtube. Hollywood doesn't always present a true account of historical events, but this is a great film to get. It's independent. I prefer this one to Hotel Rwanda. Roy Dupuis did a great job in portraying the senator. I rooted for him as will many viewers who care about the necessity of saving lives. The world needs more people like this amazing individual. This film is a must-have, and I highly recommend it to everyone.
