5.0 out of 5 stars A Thoroughly Grim Film, 16 April 2013
This review is from: Sometimes In April [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
The Rwandan Genocide was one of those events hard to imagine en masse thus obliging us to try to understand it at the individual level. Although there is the usual flagellation over what the West did not do at the time, the film directs us to the more important point of what happened afterwards when the legal process started grinding. But this is all so much Western worry, the film is really about Idris Elba's character losing his family in dreadful circumstance. Here the film gives it straight from the shoulder; there are no happy endings, just some less horrid ones. A film about Africa made with Africans. But - hey- don't watch it while depressed.
