Product Description

Unaware of what they would find, a group of international Journalists visit a small village in Darfur under the protection of the African Union (AU). They manage to convince their guide to take them to a village in Janjaweed territory. When they arrive, the journalists see how the Sudanese live daily in fear of rape, torture and murder by the government and the rebel militia. While they are interviewing the Sudanese men and women for accounts to take back home and prove to the UN that genocide has occurred, the Janjaweed militia show up at the village, and threaten to kill the journalists if they do not leave. Four of the six journalists choose to leave the camp, but two remain behind …

5.0 out of 5 stars Will give you nightmares. 5 Mar 2011
By Bobby Smith TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My wife and I watched this movie yesterday and both of us endured a sleepless night, so harrowing were some of the scenes. The slaughter of the villagers reminded me of the WW2 film Come And See [DVD] [1985] an equally disturbing film. Genocide will only be allowed to continue if right minded people ignore atrocities - which is why this film is so important - to raise awareness of the plight of innocent human beings, being systematically killed purely because they are black African. I have to confess that the idea that a couple of journalists would feel they could fight back against the Janjaweed, with just two Beretta pistols, and the African Union captain was a little far fetched, but it is a small point, given the moral viewpoint of the film; that we should not ignore what is happening to our fellow humans, no matter how far away from us they happen to live. An outstanding film that demands to be watched by any person needing to have their moral compass pointed in the right direction.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must see film by Uwe Boll? 13 Oct 2010
By PJ Rankine TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
When you highlight the five stars to rate a film on Amazon a subtitle pops up that says 'I love this film', I don't, I hate it but it rates five stars because against all odds the director of 'Bloodrayne' and 'Alone in the dark' has made a film that should be seen by everyone in the West. It is of no suprise to me having seen it that Amnesty International are backing this film and I'm not ashamed to say that it made me cry. The story follows a group of western journalists who are taken by a team of three Nigerian soldiers from the African Union to visit a black African village in the Darfur region of Sudan. They are investigating reports of ethnic cleansing and genocide by the Arabic militia known as the Janjaweed. On their return from this peaceful village they see a Janjaweed force heading back towards it and are faced with the dilemna of whether to continue to safety or to try to help. I can't really say anymore without spoilers but suffice it to say that the attack eventually takes place and you are presented with the horrific reality of what is happening in Darfur all the time. Boll does not shy away from portraying horror and in this case it is entirely appropriate. There are none of the lurid splashes of scarlet cgi blood you would expect from his usual films, the violence is both awful and realistic. The cast both known and unknown do a superb job, Uwe Boll is to be commended and his film deserves to be seen but you won't enjoy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dafrur -shocking and tragic 28 Feb 2011
By Tommy Dooley TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Someone else has said you will not enjoy this film, and I entirely concur, however that is not a reason to avoid it. It is harrowing, but arguably a vital piece of cinema by virtue of the subject it is trying to bring to the Worlds attention, that is a civil war which has already cost 400,000 lives.

The plot is quite basic in that a team of six journalists on a fact finding mission convince their African Union (AU) minders to let them visit a remote village in Janjaweed held territory. There they meet the villagers who tell them of the brutal realities of living in a country torn apart by conflict.

They interview quite a few of the villagers and we get a glimpse into their lives and history as they tell real human stories that are easily relatable. One reporter comments that they seem almost proud of their historical inert tribal warfare.

As they are leaving they spot a Janjaweed group racing toward the village, they feel if they return the threat of International journalists might convince the Janjaweed to move on and leave the village unharmed. Then they are faced with the reality of the brutal nature of these people who tell them to leave or they will be considered villagers.

The Captain of the AU convinces them to make a hurried exit. However, the realization of what they are ignoring makes two of them return. The true horror of what the villagers had been telling them then unfolds.

This is a gripping, brutal, explicitly violent (both physical and sexual) and harrowing film. It does not even pretend to pull its punches and has a clear message in that if we allow genocide to continue then we have not learnt from history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Disturbing but a must-see 24 Aug 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A very well made, informational movie that highlights how racism rather than religious differences, can create incredible levels of barbarism in people, leading to devastating atrocities, while the world beyond remains oblivious to what is happening.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most disturbing film I have ever seen 23 Feb 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is not for the faint hearted, it will make you cry, you may have bad dreams. It is definitely worth watching though.
It is very real, brutal, violent - as it is played by actual victims who relive the worst moments of their lifes. That's what makes it so gruesome. The scenes are very graphic. It is very sad what happened in Darfur - and the world was not doing anything about it once again.
The story is quite basic, a team of Western journalists go interview people in a remote village in Janjaweed territory in Western Sudan to prove to the UN that genocide has occurred. The villagers talk about their life and the daily threat of getting killed, tortured, raped by the Janjaweed. The Janjaweed are armed partisans drawn from Arab tribes.
The Janjaweed arrive in the village and threaten the journalists - if they didn't leave they would be killed. The journalists are facing a dilemma - should they leave to be able to live and tell the story or stay and help and most likely get killed. All of them leave together, but two go back...
The film is a must see!

It's hard to write a review after some of what the previous reviewers have already said about this film which I think is exceptional, so it probably won't win any awards. Read more
